Diagnosis, management, and containment of smallpox infections

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The US public health system and primary health care providers must be prepared to address varied biologic agents, including pathogens that are rarely seen in the United States. The increased frequency of international travel, combined with the current national concerns regarding bioterrorism, create an imperative for health practitioners to be more knowledgeable about specific biologic agents. Smallpox poses a serious bioterrorist threat to the US population at this time. Thus, if an outbreak occurred, prompt recognition and the implementation of control measures would be important.
