New Vaccines Against Enteric Bacteria for Children in Less Developed Countries
This article, published in Expert Review of Vaccines, describes how the development of safe and effective multicomponent, whole-bacterial cell vaccine(s) against enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli and Shigella, two important pathogens for which no licensed vaccine exists, could help address the problem of diarrheal disease among infants in less-developed countries. The author states that live attenuated and inactivated whole-cell vaccine candidates are available for testing, and, if perfomed in a coordinated fashion, can answer key unresolved issues concerning mucosal vaccination against enteric diseases. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
