Vaccine Stabilization: Research, Commercialization, and Potential Impact

This article, published in Vaccine, discusses the challenges of different approaches to developing and producing thermostable vaccines. Topics include the technical feasibility of improving vaccine thermostability and thus vaccine effectiveness using novel vaccine formulations and processing technologies; and investigations into the economic, logistical, regulatory, and policy issues associated with the development, licensing, and use of stabilized vaccines. The authors conclude that enhanced vaccine stability could positively impact vaccine manufacturers, purchasers, and beneficiaries alike. ABSTRACT ONLY.
