Biological threats and terrorism : assessing the science and response capabilities : workshop summary by Stacey Knobler( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of September 11"th" and recent anthrax events, our nation's bioterrorism response capability has become a priority for policymakers, researchers, public health officials, academia, and the private sector. In a three-day workshop, convened by the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Emerging Infections, experts from each of these communities came together to identify, clarify, and prioritize the next steps that need to be taken to prepare and strengthen bioterrorism response capabilities. From the discussions, it became clear that of utmost urgency is the need to cast the issue of a response in an appropriate framework that can attract the attention of Congress and the public and garner sufficient and sustainable support for such initiatives. Numerous workshop participants agreed that there are many gaps in the public health infrastructure and countermeasure capabilities that must be prioritized and addressed in order to assure a rapid and effective response to another bioterrorist attack

The resistance phenomenon in microbes and infectious disease vectors : implications for human health and strategies for containment : workshop summary by Stacey Knobler( Book )

12 editions published between 1900 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The resistance topic is timely given current events. The emergence of mysterious new diseases, such as SARS, and the looming threat of bioterrorist attacks remind us of how vulnerable we can be to infectious agents. With advances in medical technologies, we have tamed many former microbial foes, yet with few new antimicrobial agents and vaccines in the pipeline, and rapidly increasing drug resistance among infectious microbes, we teeter on the brink of loosing the upperhand in our ongoing struggle against these foes, old and new. "The Resistance Phenomenon in Microbes and Infectious Disease Vectors examines our understanding of the relationships among microbes, disease vectors, and human hosts, and explores possible new strategies for meeting the challenge of resistance

The infectious etiology of chronic diseases : defining the relationship, enhancing the research, and mitigating the effects : workshop summary by Stacey Knobler( Book )

9 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emerging infectious diseases are conceptualized as either newly identified or appreciated illnesses, conditions, or well-recognized diseases that are newly attributed to infection. Now, scientists are beginning to believe that a substantial portion of chronic diseases may actually be associated with infection. In an effort to identify cross-disciplinary aspects of the challenge of infectious etiologies of chronic diseases, including inflammatory syndromes and cancer, a two-day conference on the subject was held in 2002. This is a summary report of that workshop
