uncertainties. Some of these relate to the need to better quantify the exposures (persons at risk, spore density, aerosolization fraction); however, others clearly relate to the intrinsic properties of the agent(s) themselves (i.e., the dose-response parameter). Hence, it would be useful to develop a better understanding of the dose–response relationships for potential bioterrorist agents, and their associated uncertainties and variabilities.
