Anthrax is a harmful disease that affects humans as well as animals such as sheep, goats, horses and cattle. It is a life-threatening infection caused by a bacteria called Bacillus anthracis. Bacillus anthracis is a gram-positive and rod-shaped bacterium generally transmitted from animals. Anthrax spreads through three main routes: digestive route, aerial route and contact through skin. Over the past few years, anthrax has gained great popularity due to its use in bioterrorism. The spores of anthrax have been used for mass infection and in biological warfare. Anthrax is not a communicable disease and anthrax skin infection is the most common amongst all infections. It develops an ulcer with a black center called as eschar. Ingestion of anthrax can cause seriously fatal diseases. The most lethal type is inhalation anthrax. Inhalation anthrax progresses rapidly with high fever, rapid breathing, shortness of breath, blood vomits, sweating, and chest pains that lead to heart attacks. Common symptoms of anthrax in human beings for respiratory infection include pneumonia and severe respiratory collapse. Diagnosis of anthrax infection is mostly done through a CT scan and an X-ray of lungs, a blood test for anthrax antigens and a biopsy skin test. Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and Chemiluminescence based kits are available for the diagnosis of anthrax.

According to CDC, anthrax is classified as a Category A agent with serious bioterrorism potential. BioThrax (manufactured by Emergent BioSolutions, Inc.) is the only FDA-approved vaccine provided as a pre-exposure protection from anthrax infections.
