Analysis of Strategies to Successfully Vaccinate Infants in Developing Countries Against Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) Disease

This article, published in Vaccine, outlines current candidates for a safe and effective vaccine against ETEC. The authors argue that a critical roadblock to achieving this goal has not been the science as much as the lack of a sufficiently funded and focused effort to bring it to realization. They believe that a Product Development Partnership to overcome this hurdle could accelerate the time lines toward when control of ETEC disease in developing countries is substantially closer. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
