Description

The last 20 years has seen a rapid increase in infectious diseases, particularly those that are termed "emerging diseases" such as SARS, "neglected diseases" such as malaria and those that are deemed biothreats such as anthrax. It is well-recognized that the most effective modality for preventing infectious diseases is vaccination. This book provides researchers with a better understanding of what is currently known about these diseases, including whether there is a vaccine available or under development. It also informs readers of the key issues in development of a vaccine for each disease.

Readership

Primary: Researchers and physicians in vaccinology, virology, microbiology, parasitology and infectious diseases. Secondary: public health officials.

Alan D.T. Barrett

Drs. Stanberry and Barrett are highly respected authorities in vaccine development. Dr. Barrett researches tropical virus diseases such as dengue, West Nile, yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis. He has made important contributions to molecular aspects of immunogens and preclinical development of candidate vaccines for these diseases, and studies on the current yellow fever 17D vaccine. Dr Stanberry focuses on sexually transmitted diseases research and has made important contributions in the area of tropical microbicides an in herpes simplex virus pathogenesis, immunobiology, and antiviral therapy. He has played major roles in the pre-clinical and clinical assessment of many of the herpes vaccines currently in development.
