The correct answer to this question is Yes. Though it is still in the early stages, anthrax does have a cure. There are many antibiotics that can cure the cutaneous anthrax, which is the skin form of the disease. Some of those antibiotics include stadium, penicillin, ampiclox, and ciprofloxacin.

However, the emergency type of anthrax is pulmonary. A person will need medical attention. Antibiotics should be given as soon as it is known of exposure to anthrax, because it can help save the person's life. There are known vaccines for anthrax exposure, but because they are still in the early stages, they are not ready for the public to use.

Anthrax could be curable. In most of the reported cases of anthrax, worthy of note is the fact that the treatment of anthrax was actually early. Therefore, we can hit the conclusion that early treatment is a well-proven cure for anthrax. The cutaneous or the skin form of the disease anthrax can actually be treated with some of the commonly known antibiotics such as the tetracycline, ampiclox, penicillin, sporidex, sparidox, stadium, ciprofloxacin.

The kind of anthrax that is pulmonary is an emergency case that needs urgent medical attention. Early, continuous, and a consistent administration of intravenous therapy whose components consist of antibiotics is also a life-saving technique. In the case of a bioterrorism attack, the victims or individuals who are exposed to anthrax must be given antibiotics early even before the event of the falling sick. To this end, there are vaccines, but they are not yet available to the general public.
