About this book

Genetically Engineered Plants as a Source of Vaccines Against Wide Spread Diseases: An Integrated View provides an integrated outlook of the disciplines involved in the development of plant-based vaccines as well as an updated compilation of the successful developments in the field. The volume covers immunological aspects of mucosal vaccine design, molecular approaches to attain high levels of the recombinant antigens, the rationale of using bioreactor to expand plant biomass, and pharmaceutical technology approaches that have been applied to the development of plant-based vaccine formulations. Practical figures and tables are presented to facilitate reading and identification of key points. Perspectives for this field are also discussed.

Written by authorities in the field, Genetically Engineered Plants as a Source of Vaccines Against Wide Spread Diseases: An Integrated View is a comprehensive resource for researchers and students interested in plant genetics and breeding, immunology, and genetic engineering.
