From The Business Review (Albany), news of possibly important work on anthrax defense:
“Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., and the University of Toronto have collaborated on a successful design of a nanoscale assembly of molecules that counteracts anthrax toxin in animal and lab experiments.
“The inhibitor works by preventing the assembly of toxic enzyme components, which in turn neutralizes the anthrax toxin.
“Rats were protected from anthrax in the experiment.
“The researchers said they hope to develop the inhibitor as a neutralizer for human anthrax exposure.”
