Japan - is it time to talk radiation countermeasures?
As you might have noticed I do closely follow the developments in Japan, and one thing is puzzling: nobody so far seemed to mention radiation countermeasures for potential exposure from Fukushima reactor. Now, I am not in any way an expert in the flied, but I do know that such measures are being developed and some of them are in a pretty advanced stage and passed initial human trials. I am talking about CBLB502, the drug being developed by Cleveland Biolabs, which demonstrated protection from radiation damage. I am hoping the science had progressed since Chernobyl calamity and there must be some additional ways to protect the population from the disaster, in addition to evacuation and iodine. What are they and why is nobody talking about it?!
