Tularemia is an infection caused by the bacteria Francisella tularensis that can affect animals and humans. About cases of human tularemia are reported each year in the United States. Bites from infected ticks and the handling of infected rabbits are responsible for most tularemia cases in the United States. If tularemia were to be released.

    Tularemia, acute infectious disease resembling plague, but much less severe. It was described in among ground squirrels in Tulare county, California (from which the name is derived), and was first reported in humans in the United States in The causative agent is . Tularemia is a bacterial infection in wild rodents. The bacteria are passed to humans through contact with tissue from the infected animal. The bacteria can also be passed by ticks, biting flies, and mosquitoes.

    Tularemia is bacterial disease that affects horses and other mammals such as rabbits, hares, and rodents. This disease is caused by the bacteria Francisella tularensis and is transmitted by biting insects such as ticks, lice, mosquitoes and horseflies.   TRANSMISSION. Tularemia is more common in some groups of people. Groups at risk include foresters, hikers, hunters, people in contact with meat and animals, people living in rural areas, farmers, laboratory workers and veterinarians (2, 5, 22).In humans, the clinical symptoms of tularemia may vary depending on the bacterium’s virulence, amount, mode of Cited by:

It is caused by toxins in the blood produced by the bacterium Francisella bacteria can survive for weeks or months in a moist environment. A blood sample is needed. The sample is sent to a laboratory where it is examined for francisella antibodies using a method called serology.

This method checks if your body has produced substances called antibodies to a specific foreign substance (), in this case F tularensis.

It is nonspore-forming, nonmotile, and the causative agent of tularemia, the pneumonic form of which is often lethal without is a fastidious, facultative intracellular bacterium, which requires cysteine for growth.
