Development of Vaccines. From Discovery to Clinical Testing

  • Published: July 2011
  • 472 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd

Development of Vaccines: From Discovery to Clinical Testing outlines the critical steps, and analytical tools and techniques, needed to take a vaccine from discovery through a successful clinical trial. Contributions from leading experts in the critical areas of vaccine expression, purification, formulation, pre-clinical testing and regulatory submissions make this book an authoritative collection of issues, challenges and solutions for progressing a biologic drug formulation from its early stage of discovery into its final clinical testing. A section with details and real-life experiences of toxicology testing and regulatory filing for vaccines is also included.

INDEX

“Given the scarcity of books on this topic, this title will be a welcome addition to those with an interest in vaccine development, mostly researchers and students.  It will be a useful reference for occupational health professionals whose role involves supervision of immunization programmes such as those working in the National Health Service, some sectors of higher education and the pharmaceutical industry.”  (Journal of Occupational Medicine, 1 January 2013)
