Vaccine Adjuvants : Preparation Methods and Research Protocols (Methods in Molecular Medicine)
|von Derek T. O'Hagan|
From Book News, Inc. Vaccinologists and pharmacologists describe the preparation, characterization, and evaluation of alternative vaccine adjuvants for use in preclinical studies. Each chapter reviews a single adjuvant and suggests why it might be preferred for a given antigen, depending on what type of immune response is desired. Alternate adjuvant choices are also presented. Methods are described in full detail and range from simple to complex preparation processes. Methods are presented by scientists who originally invented or developed them. The editor works in the private sector.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Synopsis All non-living vaccines require adjuvants (a chemical that enhances the immune response). Newer generation vaccines, particularly based in recombinant proteins are poorly immunogenic and require adjuvants to make them effective. This text is a practical guide to the use of adjuvant technologies in vaccines. It provides an outline of the various adjuvant approaches available, describes in detail how and when to use adjuvants, and discusses which is most appropriate.
