Description:

Report

Purpose/Objective:

The objective of the study was to determine the attenuation of vaccinia virus viability, a surrogate for smallpox virus (variola), and the cytotoxicity of ricin toxin on indoor building materials due to prolonged exposure to ambient conditions [20°C, relative humidity (RH) 40 - 70%], or at 30°C with high (>70%) or low (<40%) RH.
