Towards Development of Improved Serodiagnostics for Tularemia by Use of Francisella tularensis Proteome Microarrays. Introduction. Tularemia is a zoonotic disease caused by Francisella tularensis, a bacterium first isolated in from ground squirrels in Tulare County, California.1, 2 The genus Francisella was coined to honor Edward Francis, an American bacteriologist who greatly contributed to the description of the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of tularemia.

tularensis is highly virulent in many. F tularensis is considered a category A bioterrorism agent (CDC: Select agents and toxins).The following information supports the use of F tularensis as a potential biological weapon (CDC: Key facts about tularemia, ChristopherDennis ).

F tularensis is highly infectious, occurs widely in nature, and can be isolated and grown in quantity in the laboratory. Tularemia is a bacterial zoonotic disease caused by “ Francisella tularensis”.

The bacterium is highly virulent for humans and a range of animals such as rodents, hares and rabbits. It can infect ticks which help spread the bacteria.

Tularemia, otherwise known as “rabbit fever”, is a zoonotic disease caused by a gram-negative intracellular bacterium – Francisella species is considered as a potential bioterrorism agent due to its high infectivity, the fact of being relatively easy to culture, the absence of human vaccine, and the potential for spreading through aerosol.

Tularemia should receive a greater emphasis in the medical educational system of Iran. It is highly recommended that physicians and healthcare workers become more knowledgeable about the natural cycle of F. tularensis and the clinical manifestations of tularemia, in order to help them recognize the by:   Introduction “The causative agent of tularemia, Francisella tularensis, is one of the most infectious pathogenic bacteria known.” (Dennis et al 1.)
