Handbook on Biological Warfare Preparedness provides detailed information on biological warfare agents, their mode of transmission and spread. It also explains methods of detection and medical countermeasures, including vaccine and post-exposure therapeutics, with specific sections detailing diseases, their transmission, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, vaccines, prevention and management. This book is useful reading for researchers and advanced students in toxicology and the aspects of biological warfare agents, but will also prove helpful for medical students, civil administration, medical doctors, first responders and security forces. As the highly unpredictable nature of any event involving biological warfare agents has given rise to the need for developing rapid and accurate detection systems, this book is a timely resource on the topic.
