Vaccines for Biodefense and Emerging and Neglected Diseases

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.

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