Anthrax is an acute disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. Most forms of the disease are lethal, and it affects mostly animals. Animals can transmit the disease to humans, but humans cannot spread the disease between each other. Effective vaccines against anthrax are available, and some forms of the disease respond well to antibiotic treatment.
