This fourth edition of the anthrax guidelines encompasses a systematic review of the extensive new scientific literature and relevant publications up to end 2007 including all the new information that emerged in the 3-4 years after the anthrax letter events.
This updated edition provides information on the disease and its importance, its etiology and ecology, and offers guidance on the detection, diagnostic, epidemiology, disinfection and decontamination, treatment and prophylaxis procedures, as well as control and surveillance processes for anthrax in humans and animals.
With two rounds of a rigorous peer-review process, it is a relevant source of information for the management of anthrax in humans and animals.
"For all those concerned with the diagnosis, regulation and treatment of notifiable disease in animals and humans,
this 4th edition should be considered as an essential up-to-date reference."
