Clinical Trials [859 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

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.

Predictive Value of ProCalcitonin for the Detection of Bacteraemia in Patients Presenting to the Emergency Department for Low Risk Chemo-induced Febrile Neutropenia

CALIF study is a monocentric observational study which aim is to analyse the value of adding procalcitonin (PCT, a pre-hormon increased in bacterial infection and septicaemia) in the manag...

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, ...

New Protocol for Febrile Neonate Management

The objective of present study was to evaluate clinical and laboratory characteristics of febrile neonate and describe the incidence of SBI in febrile neonates. Secondarly investigators ai...

PubMed Articles [12150 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

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...

pheS* as a counter-selectable marker for marker-free genetic manipulations in Bacillus anthracis.

Several genetic tools have been developed for use in Bacillus anthracis, but there is still a need for a more marker-free gene inactivation protocols. Thus, we report a method to generate unmarked mut...

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...

Design and use of a novel substrate for simple, rapid, and specific early detection of anthrax infection.

Bacillus anthracis is a major biological warfare threat. The inhalation form of infection can kill quickly. While antibiotic treatment is effective, if diagnosis is delayed, the rapidly produced toxin...

Incidental Detection of Dent-2 Disease in an Infant with "Febrile Proteinuria".

Febrile proteinuria is functional proteinuria and is seen as a transitory phenomenon during acute febrile illness, mainly viral infections. It is a benign phenomenon and clears promptly with resolutio...

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.

Infection of cattle, sheep, or goats with protozoa of the genus THEILERIA. This infection results in an acute or chronic febrile condition.

Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

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