5. Кратко охарактеризовать деятельность в области биологической защиты, осуществляемую на объекте, включая вид(ы) изучаемых микроорганизмов1 и/или токсинов, а также наружные исследования биологических аэрозолей.

Assessment of the hazards from biological agents and toxins involves research to understand the dispersion of such agents and is carried out by mathematical modelling techniques. Part of the work in detection involves R&D leading to the production of field portable biological agent detection systems. In medical countermeasures, research is carried out on new drugs and vaccines, for example humanized antibodies, antivirals, antibiotics and vaccines. Microorganisms other than Newcastle disease virus (NDV) and Bacillus atrophaeus (formerly Bacillus globigii (BG) which have been used in the biological defence program are Bacillus anthracis, Brucella species (abortus, melitensis, neotomae, ovis and suis), Burkholderia species (mallei, pseudomallei) Francisella tularensis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Yersinia pestis, various influenza virus strains, western equine encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, Highlands J virus, Sindbis virus and dengue virus (serotypes 1-4). Toxins used include botulinum toxin, staphylococcal enterotoxin B and ricin.  In the early to mid-1980s, outdoor studies have involved only NDV middle through 1980’s and BG.  Currently, outdoor studies use BG as well as Male-specific Coliphage 2 and Pantoea agglomerans (formerly Erwinia herbicola).
