The authors trace the origins and history of anthrax and anthrax vaccines. They describe the aetiology and pathogenesis of the disease and the variety of symptoms which result from infection. The authors relate the early work performed by Pasteur, the development of existing vaccines and the efficacy of these vaccines, and predict the type of non-living vaccines which may be used to combat anthrax in the future.
