Synopsis:

Security sensitive microbes (viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites) and toxins, which are often referred to as the select agents and toxins, have the capacity to cause serious illness and death in humans, animals, and plants. Throughout history, these microbes and toxins have been exploited in one form or another as biowarfare and bioterror agents that create fear and panic well beyond any actual physical damages they might cause.

Manual of Security Sensitive Microbes and Toxins provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of microbes and toxins of biosecurity concern. The ultimate goal is to increase our awareness of these agents and enhance our preparedness against any future bio-emergencies.

The book begins with an introduction containing a brief overview of the historical aspects of security sensitive microbes and toxins. This is followed by a concise summary of the current status in relation to the regulation of security sensitive microbes and toxins and a discussion of future development trends.

The book is divided into seven parts:

  • Microbes and Toxins Affecting Humans and Animals: Viruses
  • Microbes and Toxins Affecting Human and Animals: Bacteria
  • Microbes and Toxins Affecting Human and Animals: Fungus and Parasite
  • Microbes and Toxins Affecting Human and Animals: Toxins
  • Microbes Affecting Animals: Viruses
  • Microbes Affecting Animals: Bacteria
  • Microbes Affecting Plants

Written by experts in the relevant areas of research, the chapters are authoritative reviews, each one covering a single microbe or toxin with respect to its classification, biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, identification, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. The chapters also discuss the limitations of our current knowledge and challenges relating to improved detection and control of the microbe or toxin.

About the Author:

He is the primary author of more than 50 original research and review articles in various international journals and the editor of seven recent biomedical books published by CRC Press.
