Clinical Trials [739 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.

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, ...

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...

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...

Low antibody prevalence against Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis in Taï National Park, Côte d'Ivoire, indicates high rate of lethal infections in wildlife.

Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis (Bcbva) is a member of the B. cereus group which carries both B. anthracis virulence plasmids, causes anthrax-like disease in various wildlife species and was describe...

Avirulent Bacillus anthracis Strain with Molecular Assay Targets as Surrogate for Irradiation-Inactivated Virulent Spores.

The revelation in May 2015 of the shipment of γ irradiation-inactivated wild-type Bacillus anthracis spore preparations containing a small number of live spores raised concern about the safety and se...

Gastric pH and Toxin Factors Modulate Infectivity and Disease Progression following Gastrointestinal Exposure to Bacillus Anthracis.

Gastrointestinal (GI) anthrax is the most prevalent form of naturally acquired B. anthracis infection, associated with exposure to vegetative bacteria in infected meat (carnivores) or to fermented rum...

Rapid detection of goose hemorrhagic polyomavirus using TaqMan quantitative real-time PCR.

Due to low doses of infection, an efficient and sensitive virus detection method is necessary to detect low amounts of goose hemorrhagic polyomavirus (GHPV). In this study, we have developed a TaqMan ...

Construction of a high-efficiency cloning system using the Golden Gate method and I-SceI endonuclease for targeted gene replacement in Bacillus anthracis.

To investigate gene function in Bacillus anthracis, a high-efficiency cloning system is required with an increased rate of allelic exchange. Golden Gate cloning is a molecular cloning strategy allowin...

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.
