Date:9/3/2009

nly FDA-approved indication for such products. However, antibiotic therapy, while useful, is believed to be associated with a number of limitations, including: (1) lack of activity against the toxins produced by the B. anthracis bacteria, (2) need for long-term dosing to achieve full protection, complicated by side effects and non-compliance (3) lack of efficacy when administered late in the anthrax disease cycle, and (4) lack of effectiveness against multi-drug resistant or genetically engineered strains of anthrax.

About Bacillus - ACT 2009

Bacillus - ACT 2009 is the third joint conference representing a fusion of two conferences: the 8th International Conference on Anthrax and the 6th International Workshop on the Molecular Biology of Bacillus cereus, Bacillus anthracis and Bacillus thuringiensis, and is organized by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). The major mission of the conference is to promote stimulating and fruitful interactions between investigators involved in research related to the physiology, genetics, molecular biology, and pathogenicity of these bacteria and to the prevention and treatment of diseases they cause. The conference includes scientific sessions consisting of oral or poster presentations selected from the abstract submissions.
