Anthrax is a serious bacterial infection of humans and many animal species caused by Bacillus anthracis. Effective prophylaxis and treatment of inhalational and gastrointestinal anthrax remain a challenging task in spite of the modern advances in the antimicrobial therapies and vaccines. A quick progression of the disease takes place without specific clinical symptoms, and patients often seek medical help at the stage of disseminated infection, which historically has been highly lethal regardless of the treatment. The mortality rate in the U.S. inhalational anthrax attack in 2001 was reduced to 55%, which still remains unacceptably high, underscoring the need for new therapies and early diagnostics.
