The Clostridium perfringens Epsilon Toxin as a Bioterrorism Weapon

The Clostridium perfringens epsilon toxin made by the microorganism true bacteria could be a doubtless fatal bioterrorism weapon. If used effectively, this agent might cause important morbidity and mortality and, because of a scarcity of existing analysis into the result of this poison in humans, no therapeutic or preventive measures exist as medical countermeasures.


Notable well for manufacturing severe medicine malady in domestic mammals, Clostridium perfringens epsilon toxin might be promptly weaponized and dispersed via AN orally ingestible or aerosol route. This critical review considers the present literature and tries to position stress on understanding this organism and this poison in its rightful place as AN agent of goodly concern to be used in act of terrorism attacks. The review includes a discussion of the bacteria genus, the precise toxins of C. perfringens in addition as focusing on Clostridium perfringens epsilon toxin above all.


Although the array of human diseases caused by this bacterium is wide, a vital characteristic that unites them in their mechanism is that the formation of powerful toxins that initiate the organic chemistry changes that turn out clinical disease. In fact, the eubacteria and tetanus toxins are 2 of the foremost powerful and doubtless harmful substances glorious to science.
