Disease relevance of Bioterrorism


High impact information on Bioterrorism

  • Bioterrorism. Researchers question obsession with Cipro [5].
  • Recent concerns about bioterrorism have renewed interest in exploring the antiviral activity of ribavirin against unique viruses [6].
  • We examined outbreak investigations conducted around the world from 1988 to 1999 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Epidemic Intelligence Service. In 44 (4.0%) of 1,099 investigations, identified causative agents had bioterrorism potential [7].
  • The European Commission's Task Force on Bioterrorism [8].
  • The establishment of a Laboratory Bioterrorism Command Center and protocols for sample intake, processing, reporting, security, testing, staffing, and and quality control are also described [9].
