This review article, published in Vaccine, describes the approaches to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) and Shigella vaccines that are currently under development, including a range of both cellular and subunit approaches for each pathogen. In addition, the review discusses strategies for maximizing the potential benefit of ETEC and Shigella vaccines, which includes the feasibility of co-administration, consolidation, and combination of vaccine candidates, as well as issues related to effective administration of enteric vaccines to infants. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
