Anthrax in Russia has for a long time posed a serious problem for public health and veterinary services. At the beginning of the century, 40–60 thousand cases of this infection were annually reported in the country in agricultural animals and about 10–20 thousand cases in people where each fourth (25%) was dying. In the Russian Federation the registration of anthrax foci is obligatory for veterinary as well as for sanitary‐epidemiological services. So our initial project, funded by the… 
Phylogenetics of Bacillus anthracis isolates from Russia and bordering countries.
Spatio-temporal patterns of livestock anthrax in Ukraine during the past century ( 1913 e 2012 )
Anthrax is a severe, under-reported zoonosis, caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis, that affects livestock, wildlife, and humans nearly worldwide. Humans most often contract anthrax from animal
Mapping as a tool for predicting the risk of anthrax outbreaks in Northern Region of Ghana
The eastern corridor of Northern region of Ghana is a Hots spot area and policy makers can develop risk based surveillance system and focus on this area to mitigate anthrax outbreaks and reoccurrence.
The case revealed that anthrax outbreaks remain a major problem in northern Ghana with high case fatality rate and highlights the importance of forecasting anthrax outbreak.
Ecological Niche Modelling of the Bacillus anthracis A1.a sub-lineage in Kazakhstan
The addition of soil variables to the previously developed ecological niche model did not appreciably alter the limits of the predicted geographic or ecological distribution of B. anthracis in Kazakhstan and supports careful consideration of the taxonomic resolution of data used to create ecological niche models.
Recent outbreak of cutaneous anthrax in Bangladesh: clinico-demographic profile and treatment outcome of cases attended at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital
The clinico-demographic profile and treatment outcome of 15 cutaneous anthrax cases attended at the Dermatology Outpatient Department of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital, Bangladesh between April and August, 2011 are reported to create awareness for early case detection and management and to urge prompt therapeutic measures to treat cutaneousAnthrax successfully to eliminate the unnecessary panic.
Factors Contributing to Anthrax Outbreaks in the Circumpolar North
A convergence model is proposed where multiple factors likely contributed to the outbreak of anthrax, including an expanded population and discontinued vaccination, and it is suggested that climate change may have played a role.
Anthrax Toxin
This work describes in detail the studies so far done on unraveling the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of Bacillus anthracis, and indicates that LF is a protease that cleaves the amino terminus of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinases 1 and 2, and this cleavage inactivates MAPKK1 and thus inhibits the mitgen-activatedprotein kinase signal transduction pathway.
Vibrio cholerae - as biological weapons Cholera (Vibrio cholerae) - jako broń biologiczna
Cholera is a deadly disease that has caused a worldwide phenomenon throughout history, and because of its deadly virulence factors, cholera has become one of the most frightening diseases a human body could ever encounter.


Ecology and epidemiology of anthrax in the Etosha National Park, Namibia.
Age and sex analyses indicate that, except for zebra, proportionally greater numbers of adult males die of anthrax among the species predominantly affected; however, zebra carcases are difficult to sex.

Review of the properties of spores of B. anthracis and other Bacillus species suggests that the specific soil factors linked to epidemic areas reflect important environmental conditions that aid the anthrax spores in causing epidemics.
