This book offers an interdisciplinary overview on research and future strategies for rational vaccine
design based on recent developments in molecular biology and immunology. It covers new aspects of the immunological interplay between prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems as well as achievements in the development of novel vaccine candidates.
Chapters on edible vaccines, on vaccines against bioterror agents and on economical and safety aspects of novel vaccine development round off this title.
Edited by outstanding scientists in the field, this ready reference is divided into three main sections covering immunology and vaccination strategies, drugs, and clinical issues.
Timely reading for microbiologists, virologists, bacteriologists, immunologists, and pathophysiologists, as well as for the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries.
This new edition of Immunology of Infection provides ready-to-use "recipes" and the latest emerging techniques as well as novel approaches to the tried and tested, established methods included in the successful first edition.
Methods in Microbiology is the most prestigious series devoted to techniques and methodology in the field. Established for over 30 years, Methods in Microbiology will continue to provide you with tried and tested, cutting-edge protocols to directly benefit your research.
Apoptosis: Pharmacological Implications and Therapeutic Opportunities concentrates on presenting an overview of PCD pathways as they are currently understood, and strives to identify important unanswered questions as well as other therapeutic possibilities suggested by recent biochemical discoveries. Understanding the biochemical pathways that participate in the cell death process has become an important goal in developmental biology, neurobiology, cardiology, and infectious disease research. The control of apoptosis has also become a major area of investigation in the field of cancer biology.
Apoptosis: Pharmacological Implications and Therapeutic Opportunities contains an overview for those with a general interest in apoptosis, and provides discussions of sufficient depth to be useful for specialists in the field.
This book provides an important link between vaccine development and application under the particular conditions in developing countries.
The editors, S.H.E. Kaufmann and P.H. Lambert - one from the field of basic research and the other an expert on the side of applied vaccinology - have gathered contributions from specialists of both fields in an attempt to create a source of information that has thus far not been available.
