Using Flexible Mobile Biocontainment Units To Prevent The Spread of Transmissible Diseases

Transmissible diseases are no longer scarce and limited to one location, but are becoming a more frequent occurrence, spreading rapidly due to rising population densities and modern travel modes. There exists two key methods for controlling serious outbreaks of transmissible diseases: therapeutic countermeasures (i.e. vaccines) and transmission control through isolation and containment. For some of the transmissible diseases, there are no vaccines. Rather, only containment and measurements to support the patients’ immune system exist. In such instances, containment is key. The live virus vaccine industry provides such an example.
