Biohazard : the chilling true story of the largest covert biological weapons program in the world, told from the inside by the man who ran it by Ken Alibek( Book )

35 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: For fifty years, while the world stood in terror of a nuclear war, Russian scientists hidden in heavily guarded secret cities refined and stockpiled a new kind of weapon of mass destruction--an invisible weapon that would strike in silence and could not be traced. It would leave hundreds of thousands dead in its wake and would continue to spread devastation long after its release. The scientists were bioweaponeers, working to perfect the tools of a biological Armageddon. They called it their Manhattan Project. It was the deadliest and darkest secret of the cold war. What you are about to read has never before been made public. Ken Alibek began his career as a doctor wanting to save lives and ended up running the Soviet biological weapons program--a secret military empire masquerading as a pharmaceutical company. At its peak, the program employed sixty thousand people at over one hundred facilities. Seven reserve mobilization plants were on permanent standby, ready to produce hundreds of tons of plague, anthrax, smallpox, and Venezuelan equine encephalitis, to name only a few of the toxic agents bred in Soviet labs. Almost every government ministry was implicated, including the Academy of Sciences and the KGB. Biohazard is a terrifying, fast-paced account of tests and leaks, accidents and disasters in the labs, KGB threats and assassinations. The book is full of revelations--evidence of biowarfare programs in Cuba and India, actual deployments at Stalingrad and in Afghanistan, experiments with mood-altering agents, a contingency plan to attack major American cities, and the true story behind the mysterious anthrax outbreak in Sverdlovsk. But beyond these is a twisted world of lies and mirrors, and the riveting parable of the greatest perversion of science in history. No one knows the actual capabilities of biological weapons better than Dr. Alibek. Many of the scientists who worked with him have been lured away from low-paying Russian labs to rogue regimes and terrorist groups around the world. In our lifetime, we will most likely see a terrorist attack using biological weapons on an American city. Biohazard tells us--in chilling detail--what to expect and what we can do. Not since Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon has there been such a book--a report from inside the belly of the beast

New and evolving infections of the 21st century by I. W Fong( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviews the research, diagnosis, and treatment of some common infections facing researchers, clinicians and family physicians such as sinusitis, otitis media and asymptomatic bacteriuria. Recent studies and surveys have shown that these conditions are often over diagnosed and treated unnecessarily with antibiotics. The approach and guidelines for diagnosis and management are reviewed in this volume. Other more complicated but less common conditions challenging internists, clinical infectious disease consultants and other specialists are also reviewed (i.e. meningitis, ventilator associated pneumonia, sepsis, hepatitis C, B etc.)

The first program discusses the smallpox vaccine. Vaccines protect but are they really benign? Which is more dangerous, the threat of smallpox or the reality of the smallpox (or other) vaccine? In the second program, during the Cold War, Soviet scientists apparently developed an aerosol-disubursed biological weapon using the pneumonic plage virus. In the third program, Seattle performance artists create a mock lab in a museum to raise audience consciousness about fundamental ethical questions about genetic manipulation and the environment

Apocalypse delayed( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

These 2 programmes uncover the history of certain governments' manufacture of deadly biological agents for use against other countries or their own insurgents. In Apocalypse Delayed Dr. Ken Alibek, who defected to the West from the former Soviet Union after working on such agents, discusses the production processes and potential use of smallpox and anthrax organisms. He claims that Russia continues working on these organisms despite Boris Yeltsin's 1991 decree banning such research. In both Russia and the U.S. the danger exists that individuals with expertise in producing deadly organisms may be open to offers from other governments or from terrorist groups

Pt.[1]. First shots - Vaccines do protect us from diseases but are they all that benign? Vaccine protection may exact a price, on both individual and public health, as we load them into our systems. The question has become, which is more dangerous - the threat of smallpox, or the reality of smallpox vaccine? - pt.[2]. Air war - During the Cold War, Soviet Bloc scientists apparently developed an aerosol-disbursed biological weapon using the pneumonic plague virus. - pt.[3]. Exploring the possibilities - Seattle performance artists create a mock lab in a museum to raise audience consciousness about fundamental ethical questions about genetic manipulation and the environment
Novel Therapeutic and Prophylactic Modalities to Protect U.S. Armed Forces Against Major Biological Threat Agents( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research under current project has been carried out in three interconnected directions aimed to develop new therapeutic approaches against biological weapon threat agents, namely Bacillus anthracis and smallpox virus (using vaccinia virus model). We have successfully demonstrated new previously unexplored directions to improve anthrax antibiotic therapy by using a combination of antibiotic with apoptosis inhibitors and adenosine receptor agonists. New candidate virulence factors of B. anthracis have been suggested based on our bioinformatics analyses and experimental results. Evidence on toll-like receptor participation in both infections caused by B. anthracis and vaccinia virus has been obtained
