Ecological niche modeling as a tool for prediction of the potential geographic distribution of Bacillus anthracis spores in Tanzania.

Anthrax is caused by the spore-forming, Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus anthracis. The aim of the study was to predict the potential distribution of B. anthracis in Tanzania and produce epidemiologic...

Europium functionalized silicon quantum dots nanomaterials for ratiometric fluorescence detection of Bacillus anthrax biomarker.

Bacillus anthracis spore causes anthrax to seriously threaten human health and even cause death. 2,6-Pyridinedicarboxylic acid (DPA) is a unique biomarker because it is a major component of Bacillus a...

A disclosure gel for visual detection of live Bacillus anthracis spores.

To develop a gel formulation to trigger a visual signal for rapid disclosure of the location and extent of surface contamination with viable Bacillus anthracis spores.

A label-free impedimetric aptasensor for the detection of Bacillus anthracis spore simulant.

Herein, we report an impedimetric DNA-based aptamer sensor for a single-step detection of B. anthracis spore simulant (B. cereus spore). Specifically, we designed a miniaturized label-free aptasensor ...

Analysis of a newly discovered antigen of Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis for its suitability in specific serological antibody testing.

The aim of this work was to identify a protein which can be used for specific detection of antibodies against Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis (Bcbva), an anthrax-causing pathogen that so far has been...

Description of the Pathogenicity and Incriminated Modes of Contamination of Neonatal Bacillus Species Sepsis.

Bacillus species are ubiquitous gram-positive spore-forming organisms. They rarely cause disease in the immunocompetent and are more frequently isolated as a culture contaminant. However, ...

Febrile Whole Blood Specimen Collection and Testing

Whole blood samples will be collected from febrile patients presenting with fever of unknown origin and flu-like syndromes. Collection sites will consent patients and collect one (1) 4 mL ...

An Open Label Field Study of Anthim (Obiltoxaximab) in Subjects Exposed to B. Anthracis

This field study is a post-marketing requirement from the FDA to evaluate the clinical benefit (course of illness and survival), safety and pharmacokinetics of obiltoxaximab administered t...

Phase II Study of Range and Schedule of rPA Doses

This is a dose ranging study comparing different vaccine schedules of rPA vaccine for anthrax. Safety and the capability to induce an immune response will be evaluated.

Afatinib is an irreversible ErbB-family blocker with approved clinical activity in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR mutations. It has received regulatory approval for use as a ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acute infection caused by the spore-forming bacteria BACILLUS ANTHRACIS. It commonly affects hoofed animals such as sheep and goats. Infection in humans often involves the skin (cutaneous anthrax), the lungs (inhalation anthrax), or the gastrointestinal tract. Anthrax is not contagious and can be treated with antibiotics.

A species of bacteria that causes ANTHRAX in humans and animals.

A genus of BACILLACEAE that are spore-forming, rod-shaped cells. Most species are saprophytic soil forms with only a few species being pathogenic.

A SH2 DOMAIN-containing protein that mediates SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION pathways from multiple CELL SURFACE RECEPTORS, including the EPHB1 RECEPTOR. It interacts with FOCAL ADHESION KINASE and is involved in CELL MIGRATION.

Viruses whose host is Bacillus. Frequently encountered Bacillus phages include bacteriophage phi 29 and bacteriophage phi 105.
