The assay was able to detect 25 common bacterial pathogens (such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Neisseria meningitidis, Haemophilus influenzae, Listeria monocytogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, and Staphylococcus aureus) and inactivated BT agents (such as Bacillus anthracis, Francisella
tularensis, Yersinia pestis, and Brucella species) in about 3 hours and 45 minutes, compared with 24 or more hours for detection by culture, said Dr.
Tularemia is a zoonotic disease caused by the bacterium Francisella
tularensis, which has been identified as a potential biological threat agent.
The PathAlert Detection System can be used by government, military, and research organizations for accurate detection of infectious agents such as Bacillus anthracis (anthrax), Yersinia pestis (plague), Vaccinia (smallpox simulant), and Francisella
tularensis (tularemia) in samples collected from the air, food, and water.
The CDC also has identified an "A" list of biological agents of highest concern, which includes (a) variola major (smallpox), (b) Bacillus anthracis (anthrax), (c) Yersinia pestis (plague), (d) Francisella
tularensis (tularemia), (e) botulinum toxin (botulism), and (f) filoviruses and arenaviruses (viral hemorrhagic fevers).
Those interested in quick tutorials of what proteomics can do from the perspective of various diseases or the organisms that cause them--such as stroke; vascular disease; cancers of the kidney, ovary, and colon; diabetes; human immunodeficiency virus; herpes simplex virus; Francisella
tularensi;, and central nervous system disorders--will find the book a great resource.
caused by the bacterium Francisella
tularensis, transmitted to humans by insects or the handling of infected animals.
Tularaemia is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium francisella
tularensis that is related to the organism that causes plague.
In 1959, the name of the organism's genus was changed to Francisella
TULAREMIA Caused by Francisella
Highly infectious, Within three to tularensis, a bacteria the disease easily 14 days of exposure, in rodents and ticks.
I was not disappointed and gleaned an understanding and respect for the dangers surrounding this small aerobic, gram-negative coccobacillus known as francisella
