About this book

This extensively revised, updated, and expanded second edition of a classic laboratory manual applies new understanding of molecular mechanisms to the rational design and development of vaccines. Here the working researcher will find readily reproducible techniques for the development and production of live attenuated vaccines through the genetic manipulation of viruses and bacteria, vaccine vectors or inactivated toxins, and the production of synthetic peptides and conjugate vaccines. In addition, there are chapters describing more general techniques for vaccine formulation, delivery, and assessment of immune responses, and review discussions of scale-up to manufacture, vaccine quality assurance, and clinical trials. New to this second edition are cutting-edge chapters on two different viral vectors (Vaccinia and Semliki Forest), lactic acid bacteria for delivery of foreign antigens, incorporation of immunomodulators into plasmid DNA vaccines, construction of tetramer complexes to detect CMI responses, assessment of functional antibody responses, and the use of complete genome sequences for vaccine design. Each fully tested protocol is described in step-by-step detail by an established expert in the field and includes a background introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, equipment and reagent lists, tips on trouble shooting and avoiding known pitfalls, and, where needed, a discussion of the interpretation and use of results.
State-of-the-art and highly practical, Vaccine Protocols, Second Edition, provides essential information for those seeking to produce improved or novel vaccines in the rapidly evolving field of vaccine research and development.

Reviews

"This manual serves as a valuable guide to the process of designing, producing and assessing vaccines used against infectious agents including viruses, bacteria and parasites. This book would most benefit scientists involved in the research and development associated with vaccine technology. It also would be most useful to those new to the field of vaccine formulation and production. Health and science libraries supporting research institutions, government agencies, academic and corporate entities involved in developing or producing vaccines will find this a valuable addition to the collection." -E-STREAMS

From reviews of the first edition...

"...cover[s] concepts and protocols applicable to a wide range of vaccines and infectious diseases and cancer...brings together many protocols of value to research and development scientists involved in the vaccine technology area."
-Immunology and Cell Biology

"...a valuable basic reference manual of vaccine related laboratory procedures...strongest in the area of vaccine development and delivery technology...especially valuable to those new to the field of vaccine development and formulation."
-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
