"This book contains several chapters providing a good overall view of the cellular structure and function of the mucosal immune system. The remaining chapters provide a good, broad foundation for understanding the current problems in vaccine research as well as a detailed description of cutting edge research on vaccines against specific mucosal pathogens and vaccines designed to protect specific mucosal sites. The editors have therefore succeeded in summarizing current views and concepts relating to new generations of vaccines and vaccine technologies."
"In the preface to this book, the editors state that "Mucosal Vaccines summarizes the most current and updated views and concepts related to the development of new generations of vaccines.' This tall order is beautifully delivered in 33 chapters and almost 500 pages by contributing authors, all respected experts in their fields... The editors have done an excellent job of putting together the many chapters in logical and understandable groupings, and the authors should be cited for their excellent contributions."
