 en Opportunitites and Constraints in Schistosomiasis Vaccine Development: Infection Characteristics and Industry Realities
Graham F Mitchell

Abstract

The notes provided in this article relate to two components
of the development of vaccines against schistosomiasis: (1) The 
characteristics of schistosome infections (eg. features of the 
schistosome life cycle), and the parasite itself, that have
implications for vaccination strategies;  (2) The characteristics of the
biopharmaceutical industry that have implications for product development.  
As will be seen, these two topic areas are not vastly disparate.

Keywords
schistosomiasis - vaccines - life cycle - immunopathology - pharmaceutical industry
