Biological and chemical weapons are a growing terrorist threat to the United States and other nations and countermeasures continue to evolve as a national and global priority issue. To keep up with this rapidly changing and vital field we must establish the current state-of-the-science on countermeasures to form a platform from which to offer perspectives, policies, and procedures that will assist the United States and other nations to defend themselves from future threats.
Kwaik: Francisella Tularensis: Biology, Pathogenicity, Epidemiology, and Biodefense
By Yousef Abu Kwaik, Dennis W Metzger, Francis Nano, Anders Sjostedt and Richard Titball
2007 (1st ed), 352 pages, $160 list
This is the first book on tularemia. The volume explores the mechanisms of pathogenesis, genetics and genetic manipulations, genomics and metagenomics, animal models, protective immunity, pathophysiology, vaccine development, genetic susceptibility and routine and rapid microbiological diagnostic tools.
Richman: Medical Response to Terror Threats (Nato Acience for Peace and Security)
By A. Richman, S.C. Shapira, Y. Sharan
2010 (1st Ed), 140 pages, $150 list
We do not automatically associate the practice of medicine with al-Qaeda or weapons of mass destruction, yet medical practitioners increasingly play their part in the war against terrorism. Called to risk their own lives in order to help others, they are always among those first responders who must overcome their natural instinct to get away, and instead, rush to the scene of any fresh terror attack to offer what aid they can to the victims. The successful medical response to terror threats requires regular training and accurate information. This book is one product of the NATO workshop Terror Medicine, held in Jerusalem in 2008. The twelve chapters were written by the subject matter experts who led this workshop and topics covered include: assessment of medical threats in various types of terrorist attack, the special medical threat of suicide bombings, the unique epidemiology of terrorist attacks, management of terror related mass casualty events (MCE), analysis of case studies and best practices as well as lessons learned and standard operating protocol (SOP) expertise. Reflecting multiple lifetimes worth of experience and research and providing expert analysis to the professionals who must respond to the hazards, threats and injuries caused by terrorism, this book is an important addition to the resources of those who continue to fight global terrorism with their medical skills, as well as being of interest to all who support them in that fight.
Swearengen: Biodefense Research Methodology and Animal Models, Second Edition
By James R. Swearengen
2012 (2nd Ed), 415 pages, $130 list
Significant advances have been made in animal model development for biological research since the publication of the first edition of this volume, and the ramifications of the FDA’s Animal Efficacy Rule have become better understood in the scientific community. With each chapter completely updated with the latest research findings, Biodefense Research Methodology and Animal Models, Second Edition spans the spectrum of coverage from basic research to advanced development of medical countermeasures.
