Summary: Chemical Warfare Agents: Toxicity at Low Levels discusses the chemical warfare agents that inflict immediate direct toxic effects on humans, animals, and plants and long term effects on humans. The book places particular emphasis on the effects wrought on military personnel after exposure to low levels of sarin, a chemical suspected to have been used against U.S. troops during the Persian Gulf War. It also discusses the effects of certain factors, such as stress, surroundings, and other chemicals that can enhance or decrease the toxicity of chemicals used in war. The book also describes how scavenger enzymes can detoxify the latter-mentioned chemical agents. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Many books cover the emergency response to chemical terrorism. But what happens after the initial crisis? Chlorine, phosgene, and mustard were used in World War I. Only years after the war were the long-term effects of these gases realized. In the 60s, 70s, and 80s, these and other agents were used in localized wars. Chemical Warfare Agents: Toxicity at Low Levels explores the long range effects of, protection against, and remedies for chemicals used during war and the chronic problems possibly resulting from toxic exposures during the Persian Gulf War.
...there is something here for everyone with an interest in chemical warfare agents. I recommend it for those interested in research or for those who are formulating plans for response to terrorism.
