Despite the 1975 Biological Weapons Commission renewal in 2009, the US State Department estimates that more than a dozen countries are developing biological weapons. The possibility that national or international terrorist groups may acquire or create biological weapons and use them against unprotected civilian or military targets is of great concern. The literal anthrax attacks in 2001, which resulted in the infection of 23 Americans and the death of five, increased Americans’ sense of vulnerability. Since 2001, the U.S. government has spent or allocated more than $ 60 billion on biological weapons research, which has included the development and distribution of air sensors, education
doctors on the symptoms of bioterrorist pathogens and the distribution of biodefense medical supplies to hospitals.

Biological substances that can be turned into weapons for civilian or military destruction are a problem associated with biodefense. The precise and rapid identification of these substances is at the heart of this report.

In addition, treatment methods such as vaccines and oral pharmaceuticals will be discussed.


Pathogens can be viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, parasites, or manufactured toxins. They can cause disease in plants, animals and humans.

Pathogens harmful to animals and plants are not dealt with in this report unless they present an eminent danger, as brucellosis or plague has done, to humans through consumption. The infectious agents discussed in this report include smallpox, anthrax, plague and tularemia.

Another area of ​​pathogen identification includes potentially harmful chemical toxins that are used in biological warfare situations, such as ricin and botulinum.

In the military and civilian arenas, the report covers products and strategies that identify pathogens introduced into air, water, and other means.

The process of rapidly identifying potentially dangerous pathogens falls into two categories: testing of samples (eg, immunoassay) and sensors (eg, airborne pathogens). Both identification methods are discussed in this report, and the potential markets for the products are projected through 2026.

The most commonly available detection tests are those aimed at detecting anthrax, smallpox and tularemia. Some tests can detect more than one pathogen simultaneously.

The most common combination tests include anthrax, smallpox, plague, tularemia, botulism, and staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). Development of viral tests for pandemic influenza and COVID-19 is underway, but as with treatment, detection of viruses is more complicated than that of bacterial pathogens.
