glanders

glanders, highly contagious disease of horses, mules, and donkeys, caused by the bacterium Actinobacillus mallei. Although it can be transmitted to humans, it is limited almost exclusively to handlers of equine animals. The disease causes death in infected animals or humans. Glanders has been virtually eradicated in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain but still occurs in Asia and South America. There are three primary sites of infection: the nasal membranes and upper respiratory tract; the lungs; and the skin. The bacteria cause lumps or nodules to form in the affected area. The nodules enlarge, form ulcers, and release pus that spreads the germs to other parts of the body. In the cutaneous form of the disease, craterlike ulcers form on the skin along the course of the lymph vessels of the extremities; this form of glanders is commonly called farcy. There is no effective treatment for glanders and the infected animal must be destroyed to prevent the spread of the disease.

Hsp's are produced in response to acute cellular stress (Piano et al., 2002; Farcy et al., 2009; Li et al., 2011) produced by external stressors such as drastic temperature changes, amino acid analogues, heavy metals, free radicals, environmental contaminants, immune stimulants agents, inhibitors of metabolic energy and various diseases, among others (Hooper et al., 2012; Wei et al., 2012; Malyshev, 2013; Brokordt et al., 2015; Ravaschiere et al., 2017).
The correlation matrix shows weak correlations between set of symptoms: epistaxis vs body condition (r = 0.14), enlarged lymph nodes vs nasal discharge (r =0.28), farcy lesions vs epistaxis (r = 0.25), and cough vs enlarged lymph nodes (r =0.28) Figure - 3.

Glanders, also known as malleus (named for its devastating effect on horses), farcy (Latin for sausage which describes the cutaneous lesions associated with this form of the disease), and droes, is an acute to chronic infectious disease caused by the bacterium Burkholderia mallei (formerly known as Pseudomonas mallei and Actinobacillus mallei) and one of the oldest known diseases (it was first described by Hippocrates in 425 B.C.).

The mere mention of it would label one as a "bad Frenchman." After some witness accounts published in the period between the two world wars and some rare articles in local history journals, it was only in 1995 that the extensively documented work of Jean-Claude Farcy, The French Concentration Camps of the First World War (1914-1920), (1) began to shed some light over this overlooked aspect of World War I.
