3. Smallpox as a biological weapon: implications for the critical care clinician. (PubMed)

Smallpox as a biological weapon: implications for the critical care clinician. Once believed eradicated, smallpox has returned as a potential threat. Healthcare providers, as the first line of defense, must be proactive in maintaining current resources and offering input into the preparation for, diagnosis, and management of smallpox should an outbreak occur. The critical care nurse is integral in all aspects regarding smallpox and bioterrorism.

dispersal is a likely route that terrorists may use to deploy biologic weapons, so victims will present primarily with respiratory complaints. In addition to “flulike” symptoms, anthrax typically causes mediastinal widening, pulmonary consolidation, and pleural effusions best seen on chest computed tomography (CT) scans. Smallpox can spread in a hospital environment; thus, patients thought to have smallpox should be admitted to locations separated from the rest of the hospital. Decontamination is a key (...) attacks with nuclear, biologic, chemical, or high-energy explosive weapons. The military uses the acronym CBRNE, pronounced “see-burn-ee,” referring to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive agents. This chapter uses weapons of mass destruction (WMD) because of its wide acceptance and familiarity. – Rosen’s 9 th ed., Ch 193 Core questions [1] List 6 potential agents that may be used as weapons of mass destruction See Rosen’s box 193.1 for original Potential agents of high concern

Toxins as biological weapons for terror—characteristics, challenges and medical countermeasures: a mini-review Toxins are hazardous biochemical compounds derived from bacteria, fungi, or plants. Some have mechanisms of action and physical properties that make them amenable for use as potential warfare agents. Currently, some toxins are classified as potential biological weapons, although they have several differences from classic living bio-terror pathogens and some similarities to manmade

Airman John Hughel / U.S. Air Force by Arguably one of the greatest threats facing humankind is the deliberate use of biological pathogens to attack populations. Estimates of casualties from such an attack vary widely, yet numbers in the hundreds of thousands killed or infected are certainly considered possible. For the past 40 years, the Biological Weapons Convention has served as an international norm against the use of such weapons. Yet failure to exercise leadership in the convention places U.S

got beyond testing and some crude efforts at production, but when U.S. forces invaded Afghanistan and overthrew the Taliban regime, al-Qaida's chemical and biological weapons efforts came to an abrupt halt. Libyan leaders have wisely taken a preventative action on the remaining chemical weapons left over from Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi's chemical weapons program.

14. Altered Neuroendocrine Immune Responses, a Two-Sword Weapon against Traumatic Inflammation (PubMed)

Altered Neuroendocrine Immune Responses, a Two-Sword Weapon against Traumatic Inflammation During the occurrence and development of injury (trauma, hemorrhagic shock, ischemia and hypoxia), the neuroendocrine and immune system act as a prominent navigation leader and possess an inter-system crosstalk between the reciprocal information dissemination. The fundamental reason that neuroendocrinology and immunology could mix each other and permeate toward the field of traumatology is owing (...) to their same biological languages or chemical information molecules (hormones, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, cytokines and their corresponding receptors) shared by the neuroendocrine and immune systems. The immune system is not only modulated by the neuroendocrine system, but also can modulate the biological functions of the neuroendocrine system. The interactive linkage of these three systems precipitates the complicated space-time patterns for the courses of traumatic inflammation. Recently

miR-206/133b Cluster: A Weapon against Lung Cancer? Lung cancer is a deadly disease that ends numerous lives around the world. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a group of non-coding RNAs involved in a variety of biological processes, such as cell growth, organ development, and tumorigenesis. The miR-206/133b cluster is located on the human chromosome 6p12.2, which is essential for growth and rebuilding of skeletal muscle.
