Controlling Biochemical Weapons: Adapting Multilateral Arms Control for the 21st Century

Alexander Kelle, K Nixdorff, M R Dando

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Scientific and technological change in the life sciences is currently transforming the problem of preventing biological warfare and biological terrorism. This transformation will demand a radical and rigorous new approach to biochemical arms control, for which the existing prohibition regimes for chemical and biological weapons are necessary but insufficient building blocks. Examples from the areas of immunology, the neurosciences, and the neuroendocrine-immune system are used to show the magnitude of the problem. The final section of the book will then outline additional measures required to control biochemical weapons in the 21st century.
