    Anthrax Research Paper

    thing to be blamed upon contracting an illness. Since the disease begins with “nonspecific symptoms,” similar to flu-like symptoms, and escalates quickly into more deadly symptoms many people would not be able to receive proper treatment as they would delay a hospital visit (Dizer, Levent, Mesut). Once medical professionals figured out the source of the illness it would be too late for many, as inhalational anthrax has a mortality rate of 80% or higher (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). Since the anthrax vaccine is not available to the general public, many would not be protected against an outbreak. According to the CDC, “Antibiotics can prevent anthrax from developing in people who have been exposed but have not developed symptoms” “ciprofloxacin and doxycycline are two of the antibiotics that could be used to prevent anthrax” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). However, as the possibility for antibiotic resistance is in the future, these may be rendered ineffective at the time of an attack. The course of antibiotics typically takes 60 days and is generally given intravenously (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). This would allow hospitals to become over-crowded very quickly. Once the outbreak was identified it would be difficult to produce enough antibiotics for those infected and enough vaccines for those not yet infected. Even if enough vaccines could be produced, the vaccine requires 5 shots over the course of 18 months (Centers for Disease Control…

    Abstract In this study equilibrium isotherms, kinetics and thermodynamics of ciprofloxacin on seven sediments in a batch sorption process were examined. The effects of contact time, initial ciprofloxacin concentration, temperature and ionic strength on the sorption process were studied. The Kd parameter from Linear sorption model was determined by linear regression analysis, while the Freundlich and Dubinin–Radushkevich (D–R) sorption models were applied to describe the equilibrium isotherms by…

    Stevens would give Mrs. Kelsey the antibiotics to ease her mind.
