"News" piece on the anti-anthrax drug Cipro. Dr. Kathleen Gensheimer, state epidemiologist with the Bureau of Health, said the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta can ship enough antibiotics to treat all exposed Mainers within 12 hours. There are 2 million doses of Cipro in the nation's stockpile, and 1.2 million people in Maine, Gensheimer said. The U.S. Government plans to buy 100 million more does of Cipro from drug manufacturer Bayer A.G. in the next three months, and the Food and Drug Administration recently released recommended doses of penicillin and doxycycline, which can also be used to fight anthrax. So far, Mainers have not succumbed to the impulse to hoard Cipro or other antibiotics.
