Prions?[edit]

Surely a prion would be considered a biological agent as it is a self replicating, infectious, transmissible agent? There is no mention of them in this article.

No evidence that it should be considered "weaponizable". (Not all "replicating, infectious, transmissible agents" are biological threat agents. E.g., flu virus, HIV, malaria, etc, etc...) 214.2.208.246 (talk) 16:47, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
