In Davaine had proved that a healthy animal that did not have anthrax could get the disease if it was injected with blood containing Anthrax.   Building on the early work of Louis Pasteur and the germ theory of disease, Robert Koch established the basic scientific requirements used to demonstrate that each specific disease is caused by a specific microorganism.; The first direct demonstration of the role of bacteria in causing disease came from the study of anthrax by the German physician.

      Figure: Robert Koch: An image of Robert Koch, a pioneering microbiologist. Koch’s research and methods helped link the causal nature of microbes to certain diseases, including anthrax. After Casimir Davaine demonstrated the direct transmission of the anthrax bacillus between cows, Koch studied anthrax more closely. Koch developed a new experimental method to test whether a particular micro-organism is the cause of a disease. Building on Pasteur's work on germ theory, Koch used experiments to prove that the bacterium Bacillus anthracis was the cause of anthrax - the bacterium could be observed in the tissue of anthrax .
