Ebola was discovered in 1976 in Zaire and Sudan. The virus called Ebola takes its name from the Ebola River, which flows into Zaire, where the virus was isolated for the first time. Peter Pilot MD,... More > was the first to identify ebola virus, from an epidemic in Yambuku, in a village along the banks of the river ebola, in the northern Congo, then Zaire. There are 4 variants of the virus whose differences are due to the type of host they infect: Ebola Zaire, Ebola Sudan, Ebola Tai, that cause disease in humans and primates, and Ebola Reston, which causes the disease only in primates. During the past 30 years have been recorded periodic epidemics of Ebola in central Africa particularly in Gabon, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo-Brazzaville, Sudan and Angola. Probably the virus, present in the bats, was manifested later in the great apes and finally in humans. It is transmitted among humans through contact with bodily fluids (blood, vomit, diarrhea ...), which may occur during the care of the sick.< Less
Assessing The Biological Weapons And Bioterrorism Threat By Milton Leitenberg, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $18.50
Ships in 3-5 business days.
It is nearly 15 years since biological weapons (BW) have become a signifi cant national security preoccupation. This occurred primarily due to four circumstances, all of which occurred within a short... More > span of years. The fi rst, beginning around 1990 and repeated many times in the years that followed, was the offi cial U.S. Government suggestion that proliferation of offensive BW programs among states and even “nonstate actors”—terrorist groups—was an increasing trend. The second was the discovery, between 1989 and 1992, that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) had violated the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) since its ratifi cation in 1975 and had built a massive covert biological weapons program, the largest the world had ever seen. The third was the corroboration by the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) in 1995 that Iraq had maintained a covert biological weapons program since 1974, and had produced and stockpiled large quantities of agents and delivery systems between 1988 and 1991.< Less

Agricultural Bioterrorism: A Federal Strategy to Meet the Threat (McNair Paper 65) By Henry S. Parker, National Defense University
Paperback: $17.50
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The astonishing specter of September 11, 2001, jarred America and, indeed, all free nations, into accepting the previously unthinkable- the world's only remaining superpower is vulnerable to... More > catastrophic attack and asymmetric warfare, even within its own borders. In a few short hours Americans came to realize that, for a fanatical, resourceful, and patient enemy, there are neither ethical bounds nor societal mores to delineate the nature of the target, the weapon of choice, or the scale of the violence. To put it another way, for these enemies there are no rules of engagement and there is no honor. Since September 11, our national sense of vulnerability has steadily risen. We have been in a near-constant state of high alert because of credible threats to our Nation's nuclear installations, power plants, transportation nodes, and other critical national infrastructures.< Less

In this study, the researcher performed a meta-analysis of published research articles containing keywords for the early detection and initial response to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax.... More > The meta-analysis results were used to formulate a model for the early detection and initial response for clinical laboratories. The research model was then compared to data collected from clinical laboratory administrators who took part in a semi-structured interview pertaining to the current clinical laboratory practices from various clinical laboratory settings in a Midwest city of approximately one million citizens. The research findings of this study resulted in identifying that the American public remains vulnerable to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax. This is because the traditional beliefs, standard operating procedures, and the need to make a profit dictate the clinical laboratory profession, not the increasing threat of a biological attack and the danger to the American public.< Less
