Inhalational anthrax is a life-threatening infectious disease of considerable concern, especially as a potential bioterrorism agent. Progress is gradually being made towards understanding the mechanisms used by Bacillus anthracis to escape the immune system and to induce severe septicaemia associated with toxaemia and leading to death. Recent advances in fundamental research have revealed previously unsuspected roles for toxins in various cell types. We summarize here pathological data for… CONTINUE READING
