Abstract

Book Review

Combination Vaccines: Development, Clinical Research and Approval

Author: Ronald W Ellis

Vaccine has without question been among our most powerful tools for preventing diseases, disability and death, and controlling health care costs. Recent advances in gene cloning and expression, peptide synthesis and other technologies have created opportunities for developing bioengineered vaccines that promise a substantial return on research and development costs. The implementation and improvement of combination vaccines is an important tool to accelerate the global immunization of infants against multidiseases. It will reduce the number of injections that individuals must receive in order to develop immunity against several diseases, in the hope that fewer immunization will lead to increase vaccination rates saving and improving lives in several countries, especially in developing countries.
