    Page 6 Detection and Measurement of Biological Agents. The previous chapter was devoted to an analysis of what the committee feels is the most probable course of events in a terrorist attack involving a biological agent—a covert attack that, after a period of hours to weeks, will result in victims widely distributed in time and location. Environmental Causes of Birth Defects • in 1st trimester can cause congenital anomalies - Cardiac, sacral defects, neural tube defects, pregnancy loss. - Termed an embryopathy: 10% risk of birth defects • usually 2nd & 3rd trimesters - fetus receives abundant "fuel".

    detection is the key for an efficient intervention (Primmerman, ). These requirements make it very easy to understand how hard it is to develop detection systems that allow for effective detection of biological agents. It must be considered that some promising tools for detection of biological agentsFile Size: KB. Congenital defects were also identified as a cause of death in the case of infectious diseases occurring before the age of chemicals and environmental agents is unknown at the present time.

Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are a common birth defect of largely unknown etiology, with high fetal and neonatal mortality. A review of CHDs and environmental contaminant exposure found that meta-analyses showed only modest associations for smoking, vehicle exhaust components, disinfectant by-products and proximity to incinerators, with stronger results from the newer, larger and.
