In response to the recent concern about the potential for biological terrorism, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has made the full text of articles on this subject available free to the public.
Beginning in May 1999, JAMA published a series of articles that outlined recommendations for medical and public health professionals following the use of five kinds of biological weapons against a civilian population -- smallpox, anthrax, plague, botulinum toxin and tularemia.
These articles are by the Working Group on Civilian Biodefense. They can be found on the JAMA website at this URL.
