Bacillus anthracis secretes 2 toxins: lethal toxin (LT) and edema toxin (ET). We investigated their role in the physiopathologic mechanisms of inhalational anthrax by evaluating murine lung dendritic cell (LDC) functions after infection with B. anthracis strains secreting LT, ET, or both or with a nontoxinogenic strain. Three lung cell populations gated on(More)
Burkholderia is a bacterial genus comprising several pathogenic species, including two species highly pathogenic for humans, B. pseudomallei and B. mallei. B. thailandensis is a weakly pathogenic species closely related to both B. pseudomallei and B. mallei. It is used as a study model. These bacteria are able to exhibit multiple resistance mechanisms(More)
Ninety-four isolates of Yersinia pestis collected by the French army between 1964 and 1988 were evaluated for their susceptibilities to 24 antibiotics by the agar dilution method. All the isolates were susceptible to beta-lactam antibiotics including imipenem, to fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides and to doxycycline. The most active compounds were(More)
