My Urban Survival Guide Review

Highly Recommended

The writer has done a thorough research even about the obscure and minor details related to the subject area. And also facts weren’t just dumped, but presented in an interesting manner.

This ebook does what it says, and you can read all the claims at his official website. I highly recommend getting this book.

Contributions Of Virus And Host To Disease Severity

Effective forms of prophylaxis and therapy are needed for diseases caused by biothreat agents, not only to treat persons exposed in an attack but also to reduce the psychological impact of terrorism by reassuring the public that protective measures are available. Responding to the threat of highly pathogenic viruses will require an understanding of three factors that combine to produce severe illness (1) viral cytopathic effects, (2) virus-induced suppression or evasion of innate and adaptive immune responses, and (3) intense host inflammatory responses that produce many signs and symptoms of disease and contribute to a fatal outcome.

Inhibitors Of Avian Influenza A Viruses

In 1997, an outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in Hong Kong caused considerable concern about a potential pandemic.312 Since then, several influenza A viruses of avian origin that cause human disease have been isolated (see Table 3.6). In addition, such a naturally occurring lethal virus as well as recombinant viruses generated in the lab would be potential bioterrorist weapons.313

Inhibitors Of Orthopoxviruses

Variola virus (the causative agent of smallpox) is presumably one of the most attractive pathogens to a potential bioterrorist, as it meets the twin criteria of high transmissibility and high mortality. In addition, survivors are left with disfiguring sequelae. Historically, drugs were tried both for treatment of smallpox and for prophylaxis of contacts but rarely in well-controlled clinical trials. Postexposure Historical data on complication rates from the past will probably not be reliable predictors of future rates should any government undertake the vaccination of large segments of the population to deter or ameliorate the consequences of a potential terrorist use of smallpox. The world's population has changed dramatically since the middle of the twentieth century. Immunocompromised individuals comprise a much larger proportion of the overall population as a result of advances in transplantation and cancer treatment as well as the global devastation caused by HIV. In addition,...

Category A B And C Viruses

The terror attacks of 2001 have now made it clear that military forces do not hold a monopoly on violence, and that civilian populations must also be protected against the deliberate release of biological agents. In particular, the experience of the anthrax-containing letters demonstrated that even a small-scale release of a virulent pathogen can have a massive psychological impact and impose a huge economic cost. Although there is concern that terrorists might be provided with infectious agents by state-sponsored laboratories, or could benefit from the technical expertise of former military biowarfare experts, it is recognized that virulent pathogens could also be obtained from sources in nature or during disease outbreaks. This new perspective has led to the development of revised classification schemes that recognize a broad range of microbial threats. The lists generated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention7 and by NIAID4 (Table 2.1) include both traditional military...

Hebrew University and Hemed

At the University, I met two remarkable scientists, Aharon Katchalsky and his brother Ephraim Katchalski (Katzir). Both brothers, then young lecturers at the Hebrew University, were known for their modern research and wide interest in biological problems, in culture, and in science policy. Their lectures were popular among the students and attracted huge crowds. Aharon and Ephraim suggested that I join a group of students that was involved in clandestine scientific work for the Haganah. They were making defense tools for impending emergencies and thought that my previous Palmach experience would be of use to them. I was also asked to give this group of students some basic military training. Later, in 1948, both brothers joined the Weizmann Institute. Aharon distinguished himself as a polymer chemist and was one of the Institute's most eminent scientists, where he founded the Department of Polymer Chemistry. His brilliant and dynamic career ended tragically when, in 1972, he was...

Complete or Near Complete Transections

Amputee Boating Accident

Natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, severe storms and tidal waves were doubtless ancient sources of major limb transec-tions and, as contemporary reports of earthquake and tsunami disasters confirm, continue to be so. During the last century, we can add the innocent civilian amputee victims of warfare, aerial bombardment, minefields and of suicide terrorists. Since its introduction, the heavily laden wagon wheel, especially that of railway traffic, has been a potent cause of limb transection or near-transection. Lucas of Leeds communicated the following observation to Alanson

From Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

My parents built their house within walking distance of the Agricultural Experiment Station and the nearby Daniel Sieff Research Institute, which was the first building to be established in what was to become known, some twelve years later, as The Weizmann Institute of Science campus. At that time, Rehovot did not have a high school, and I had to commute to school by bus through a narrow winding road to Tel Aviv. To protect the passengers from stone throwing and occasional shooting byArab terrorists, the bus was armored with steel plates and fenced windows. When the bus ride became too dangerous, I used to stay with my uncle in Tel Aviv. and handle a heliograph, a signaling apparatus that sends flashes of reflected sunlight from a moving mirror. On sunny days, we were very proud to establish communications with settlements as far as 30 kilometers away, by means of Morse code. These simple devices were used to transmit messages to neighboring towns without...

The Global Eradication Of Smallpox

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Henderson became the director of the United States Office of Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response. Finding the world in danger of ''regressing'' in the battle against a disease that was presumably eradicated in the 1970s, Henderson expressed the frustration and sorrow of those who had once envisioned an era of global disease control programs. In addition to a distinguished career in the Departments of Epidemiology and International Health in the School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins, Henderson became founding director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies. His federal appointments include Associate Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Executive Office of the President, Deputy Assistant Secretary and Senior Science Advisor to the Department of Health and Human Services on civilian biodefense issues, and Chairman of the National Advisory Council on Public Health Preparedness. His...

Antiviral Drug Discovery for Emerging Diseases and Bioterrorism Threats. Edited by Paul F. Torrence Copyright 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Finally, added into this witch's cauldron is the unthinkable threat of biological terrorism.16 The threat was realized in the United States with the anthrax attacks in 2001. Although smallpox was declared to be eradicated on 8 May 1980, during the Thirty-third World Health Assembly, concerns about the possible use of the virus in bioterrorism have grown in the past few years.16,17 Other viruses, such as those that cause hemorrhagic fevers, have been identified as possible bioterrorism agents by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.16 They have been so designated because large amounts can be generated in cell culture, they are transmissible in aerosol form, and there are limited or nonexistent vaccine and drug strategies for either prevention or treatment of established infection. In addition, these viruses could be modified genetically to...

Hard tissues

Following murders, terrorist attacks, wars and fatal accidents it is desirable to group together body parts from individuals when fragmentation has occurred and ultimately to identify the deceased. If the time between death and recovery of the body is short then muscle tissues provide a rich source of DNA 22 , which can be extracted using, for example, any of the Chelex , salting-out and organic extraction methods. If, however, the soft tissues are displaying an advanced state of decomposition they will not provide any DNA suitable for analysis. When the cellular structure breaks down during decomposition, enzymes that degrade DNA are released and the DNA within the cell is rapidly digested. This process is accelerated by the action of colonizing bacteria and fungi.

Conclusion

New medications are needed to prevent and treat the severe acute infections caused by viral agents of bioterrorism. Not only will development of effective therapy benefit victims of an attack, but it will help to reduce its psychological impact, by reassuring the general public that effective countermeasures are available. Inhibitors of viral replication are needed to block viral cytopathic effects. In addition, because these pathogens are able to overcome innate antiviral mechanisms and elicit damaging inflammatory responses, modification of virus-host interactions may also be an effective therapeutic strategy. Such approaches may prove most beneficial in preventing disease in persons who have been exposed to a bioterror agent but have not yet become ill.

Viruses As Weapons

Although biological weapons were abandoned as impractical by most military forces, they may unfortunately be much better suited to the needs of terrorists. The environmental factors that were a major obstacle to military planning would not be an impediment to a terror attack, since the effects of wind and weather could be avoided, either by carrying pathogens directly to their targets or by releasing them as aerosols in indoor spaces. In addition, terrorist groups may be less interested in attempting to infect a broad target area or causing a large number of deaths than in inducing fear and insecurity through small, unpredictable clandestine attacks. Thus, even if the release of aerosolized Ebola virus into an urban setting, such as a subway station, were to cause only a few cases of disease, such an event might still produce widespread anxiety and extensive social disruption. Countermeasures that would be expected to deter a nation-state from carrying out biological attacks, such as...
