A diverse cadre of weapons of mass destruction was utilized by the group to examine pathogenesis and methods of intervention. It was determined that oxidative stress is significant component of the pathogenesis of biological and chemical weapons. Antioxidants had an ameliorate effect on both chemical and biological agents, and has the potential to be used as an ancillary treatment. Antigen presenting cells may be useful for detecting subclinical infectious disease. Dendritic cells are able to differentiate between different types of pathogens thus generating a specific signature for the pathogen.
