Example text

However, national programs for the control and eradication of anthrax led to the decrease of its natural incidence in animals and in humans worldwide and restricted the disease to animal-related professions. It is nearly absent in northern, middle, and western Europe. Due to stringent measures when cases are met, the discovery of antibiotics, and the development of an effective vaccine, anthrax is no longer considered as one of the most important causes for economical losses in livestock farming.

In many of these countries comprehensive livestock surveillance data is not available, thus human infection serves as a sentinel for infection in livestock. 2 Molecular Typing Methods Classical biotyping has been the ‘‘gold standard’’ approach for distinguishing different isolates into their respective species and biovars. However, this requires highly skilled staff, large amounts of viable organism requiring containment level 3 facilities, and lengthy incubation periods.
