Abstract

Bioterrorism of a chemical or biological nature poses a potential public health threat to our nation at a time when the health care infrastructure is challenged. This article reviews the history of bioterrorism research, some potential biological and chemical agents, and concludes with a review of the five functions that should be addressed in a bioterrorism response plan. The offending biological or chemical agent is reviewed with the clinical presentation and methods of treatment and prevention.
