Abstract

One method of dealing with bioterrorism threat is the application of immune-building technologies. Immune buildings are those that suppress or resist harmful microbial contamination-airborne or otherwise. This paper reviews the effectiveness of these technologies in mitigating the threat to occupants posed by the release of five representative biological-weapon (BW) agents in a model multistory building's outside-air intakes.
