Biodefense Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2015 - 2023

Biodefense is a measure to combat the potential effects of bioterrorism that utilizes biological agents, or deploys biological weaponry. Bioterrorism is a deliberate release of biological agents such as bacteria, virus, germs or toxins which may be in natural or human modified form, in order to make them more virulent, or to enhance their potential to cause infection, or to make them drug resistant. These biological agents can be transmittedthrough water, air, food or from person to person.Biodefense is usually utilized in two ways, either as a defense against an attack on a military target or civil population.   Defense against an attack on acivilian is largely based on the detection and methods by which casualties and loss of water or food can be minimized. Biodefense against an attack on military targets is concerned with preparing military personnelready to respond to bioterrorism.
