Editorial Reviews

Details the role of basic immunology in the regulation of immunity and vaccine design, emphasizing the use of cytokines to improve the dismal-to-date potency of the new generation of vaccines exemplified by subunit vaccines produced through gene cloning and by synthetic peptides mimicking small regions of proteins on the outer coat of viruses. Also considers vaccines designed to improve cytokine production. Among the topics are dendritic cells and cytokine, the development of para-influenza virus and respiratory syncytial virus subunit vaccines, mucosal vaccines, protection against tuberculosis by plasmid DNA, and overcoming regulatory hurdles. The 19 papers are from a NATO institute held in Cape Sounion, Greece, June to July 1996. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
'This book should be very valuable to anyone interested in the basic design of vaccine strategies or the preclinical evaluation of novel vaccines and adjuvants.'
Doody's Journal
'I have little doubt that this book will become a standard reference for future development of vaccine formulations.'
European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics Vaccine Design.
