Antidotes and Treatments for Chemical Warfare/Terrorism Agents: An Evidence-Based Review

G C Rodgers Jr et al. Clin Pharmacol Ther.

Abstract

This article reviews the evidence supporting the efficacy of antidotes used or recommended for the potential chemical warfare agents of most concern. Chemical warfare agents considered include cyanide, vesicants, pulmonary irritants such as chlorine and phosgene, and nerve agents. The strength of evidence for most antidotes is weak, highlighting the need for additional research in this area.
