It is felt that development of recombinant and multivalent vaccines could be optimized to enable a single oral dose to rapidly stimulate high levels of immunity to provide protection against various biological agents. Another strategy that could be utilized is immunomodulation by using potent adjuvants and immunomodulators, particularly of natural origin. Such immunomodulators can nonspecifically stimulate the immune system and be of immense use in achieving improved survival in the aftermath of a bioterror attack.
