One of the greatest ideal aspirations of science and health organizations is the discovery of a safe and effective HIV vaccine. The hope in developing HIV vaccines increased after results.
Persistent genital HPV infection can cause cervical cancer in women and other types of anogenital cancers and genital warts in men and women, although the majority of infections are self-limited and cause no symptoms .
Vaccines are formulated to generate strong immune responses against administered antigens thereby providing long-term immunity,especially against microbial infections.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a leading cause of infectious disease mortality and morbidity worldwide. The TB control strategies depend heavily on the availability of a safe and effective vaccine.
Vaccines are among the most effective interventions in modern therapeutics to control infectious diseases which were estimated to be second leading cause of death in the world.
Traditional vaccine technologies, from live-attenuated and killed whole-cell vaccines to subunit antigens, have resulted in an impressive generation of efficacious vaccines.
Professor, Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
Dr. José Ronnie Vasconcelos working in Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo, Brazil is an expert in genetic vaccination studies against experimental T. cruzi infections and in understanding the immunological basis of the protective immunity against these protozoan parasites. His expertise will be highly useful in designing potential vaccine candidates for T. cruzi infections in the near future. The Vaccines & Vaccine Technologies eBook represents an excellent tool to subside knowledge of vaccine history, application and improvement adding ample chapters about vaccines and their development to neglected and non-neglected infectious diseases authored by young scientists around the world.
