Short report: time course of hematogenous dissemination of Francisella tularensis A1, A2, and Type B in laboratory mice.

Abstract

Tularemia is a tick-borne zoonotic bacterial disease. In the United States, human tularemia infections are caused by Francisella tularensis subspecies tularensis (Type A, clades A1 and A2) or F. tularensis subspecies holarctica (Type B).
