tularemia organisms to infect a person. Tularemia is considered a possible agent that could be used by terrorists. TREATMENT After potential exposure or diagnosis, early antibiotic treatment is recommended. Numerous antibiotics can be used, but testing of the tularemia bacterium must be done to determine which antibiotics would be most effective tularemia in wild animals. For example, in Sweden a clear correlation between peaks in vole and hare populations and outbreaks of tularemia in humans have been reported (175), and outbreaks of tularemia in humans in the former Soviet Union have been linked to epizootics of disease in ground voles (122).

There are several clinical forms of the disease that are function of the entry route of the bacteria: oropharyngeal form with chronic pharyngitis, following ingestion of contaminated water or food
Francisella tularensis is a pathogenic species of Gram-negative coccobacillus, an aerobic bacterium. It is nonspore-forming, nonmotile, and the causative agent of tularemia, the pneumonic form of which is often lethal without treatment.It is a fastidious, facultative intracellular bacterium, which requires cysteine for growth. Due to its low infectious dose, ease of spread by aerosol, and high. Tularemia is an infectious disease of humans and other mammals found throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The severity of the disease depends on the type of F. tularensis causing the infection. In Sweden, as in other countries of Europe and Eurasia, tularemia is caused by F. tularensis subsp. holarctica, while other varieties o tularemia, both as a disease in nature and of man, is one of potentiality.

Limitations in both culture and serologic testing have led to substantial research into new diagnostic techniques and their clinical application, with PCR testing as the best example. This review focuses on the utility of culture, PCR and serologic testing for tularemia Outbreaks of tularemia during the last decade in Europe, for example, in Kosovo, Spain, and Scandinavia, led to a renewed public interest in the disease. This, together with a massive increase in the research funding, in particular in the United States since 2001, has resulted in a significant increase in the number of active Francisella researchers

Researchers predict Tularemia outbreaks as climate changes Tularemia is a reportable disease in Oklahoma. Tularemia is a disease caused by the bacteria Francisella tularensis (F. tularensis).Humans typically become infected with F. tularensis following the bite of an infected tick, and less commonly from the deer fly (Chrysops discalis).The ticks associated with tularemia in Oklahoma include the dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) and the lone star tick. Tularemia requires immediate reporting if the provider reasonably believes or suspects that that Francisella tularensis infection may be the result of a deliberate act of terrorism. Tularemia is also reportable if it is a cause or suspected cause of an outbreak, which would be an uncommon situation given its usual modes of spread
