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...
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...
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.
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 ...
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...
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, ...
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 ...
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...
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 ...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
