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 )

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

Introduced by Michael Mastanduno, head of the John Sloane Dickey Center for International Understanding, this inaugural speech begins a year-long forum addressing questions about war and peace, focussing in fall of 1998 on issues joining Russia and the West. Dr. Ken Alibek is a doctor of epidemiology and infectious diseases and foremost expert on Soviet biological weapons. He discusses the components, effects, and types of biological weapons. Biological weapons are not weapons of mass destruction. They are transmitted either through insects or by aerosol means. Alibek discusses the strategic and operational uses of biological weapons as well as the difference between biological weapons and biological agents. He traces the development, transportation, and deployment of these weapons and their effects. A question and answer session follows the speech

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
