Huxsoll of the Army's Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (MRIID) in Fort Detrick, Md., heard charges from symposium attendants that even the development of defensive biological weapons adversely affects foreign relations, and that classified research on such weapons is being conducted at some of the program's participating labs.
Prior to military stockpiling, vaccines and other "defensive' biological weapons are tested in a group of human volunteers at MRIID and then field-tested, according to Huxsoll.
