New Book Addresses Issues In Relation To Existing Vaccine Adjuvants, Those In Clinical Trials, And Those Still at a Pre-Clinical Stage.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c72850) has announced the addition of Vaccine Adjuvants and Delivery Systems to their offering.

The authoritative reference on recent developments in vaccinology

New technologies, including recombinant protein and DNA, have sparked advances in vaccine development and delivery systems. This book addresses these issues in relation to existing vaccine adjuvants, those in clinical trials, and those still at a pre-clinical stage. It includes coverage of the current state of the adjuvant field and developing formulation methods. From an overview of vaccine adjuvant development and safety, the book progresses to describe different types of systems and therapies before concluding with a look at the future of vaccine delivery.

With chapters written by leading experts in their fields, Vaccine Adjuvants and Delivery Systems:

- Provides a comprehensive overview of the rapidly evolving field and developing formulation methods

- Covers cutting-edge technologies and gives the current status of adjuvants in clinical trials and those still in the pre-clinical stage

- Includes detailed information on specific vaccine adjuvants, including MF59, TLR4 agonists, new iscoms, cytokines, polyphosphazenes, and more

- Provides a historical perspective on the development of vaccine adjuvants and discusses the mechanisms of adjuvant actions

- Covers some novel adjuvants and delivery systems and the safety evaluation of adjuvants

A great reference for researchers, scientists, and students in vaccinology, biotechnology, immunology, and molecular biology, this resource is also valuable for researchers and scientists in veterinary medicine who work to prevent diseases in animals.
