tularensi s is a pathogenic species of Gram-negative bacteria and the causative agent of tularemia or rabbit fever.
tularensis is sometimes a poorly staining gram-negative coccobacillus.
tularensis, the causative organism in tularemia and other diseases, is considered by authorities to be a dangerous potential biological weapon because of its extreme virulence, its ease of dissemination, and its capacity to cause severe illness and death.
TULAREMIA Highly infectious, the Caused by Francisella
disease easily passes tularensis, a bacteria through body tissues in rodents and ticks.
Scientists at Dstl previously demonstrated the efficacy of Lipoquin compared to oral ciprofloxacin against Francisella
tularensis (the causative agent of tularemia) infection using the highly virulent SCHU S4 strain: a single dose of aerosolized Lipoquin provided full protection against lethal exposure in a murine model of F.
Tularemia, which is caused by Francisella
tularensis, is a problematic zoonotic disease worldwide, but its ecology remains poorly understood.
On June 27, 2016, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Public Health Laboratory (PHL) was notified of a suspected Francisella
