Bioterrorism and Biological Warfare

A.L. Bhatia (Author) S.K. Kulshrestha (Author)
Synopsis Keeping in view the risk involved and unpredictable and yet not estimates fully its damage, it becomes imperative that sufficient literature and information on Bioterrorism be available as there is still paucity of not only literature but also the interest of policy makers especially in Country like India. Hence, the present initiative of compiling invited chapters on Bioterrorism and Biological Warfare should fulfil the existing gap and provide authentic information. This book offers a rich dialogue of many opinions and different scientific dimensions of the biothreats. It will assist actions such as coping with disaster of traumatic event, Helping children and teens, information to responders, information for health professionals, information for health professions, information to states and planners and educational materials for public awareness may be developed to combat bio-terroristic events. The principles of biosurveillance are applicable to both man made- and natural epidemics. The use of agents that do not cause harm to humans but disrupt the economy such as foot and mouth disease have been witnesses in the 2001 and 2007 in the U.K. and henceforth would become more important. Clearly, there is a need to improve the ability to protect our citizens from potentials bioterror threats, and to increase our capacity to deal with the medical and public health consequences of any future attacks. The book will be significant in the existing biotechnology and microbiology undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The book might also help in generating ideas of research in hitherto-ignored important areas of the bio-threat and biosurveillance fields.
