Summary: Celebrates the ways in which vaccines have played a role in improving the health of the world's populations. The book relates successful efforts to fight disease with vaccines and looks at the challenges of using vaccines to cope with emerging and re-emerging diseases. The authors also examine innovative efforts to test the efficacy of vaccines against diseases such as meningococcal infection in Africa, Haemophilus influenza type b, varicella, and hepatitis A, and look at efforts to develop a new generation of vaccines against cholera and tyhoid, shigella, and Helicobacter pylori. It also includes sections on the quest for vaccines against tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, dengue, malaria, and hook-worm; the use of vaccines to fight bioterrorism attacks; and regulatory, safety, and public health issues pertaining to vaccines.
