Adjuvants can act in a number of diverse ways to help the
immune system respond
vaccine. An understanding of these modes of action along with
some knowledge of the
epidemiology, pathogenesis and the required protective response
to the disease of relevance

and discuss issues of
formulation which are important to adjuvant function.
