New Bacterial Vaccines focuses upon unfulfilled needs for bacterial vaccines. The increase in drug resistance among many bacterial species has increased the need for new bacterial vaccines. This book serves as a comprehensive reference on the major aspects of developing new bacterial vaccines. The distinctive feature of this book is that it focuses upon new vaccines now under development by reviewing key issues for each vaccine target and new technologies being applied to developing new vaccines.
This book should prove useful for students in the life sciences, scientists, developers of vaccines and biotechnology products, clinicians, regulators, and health-care practitioners.
