About the book
Infectious diseases are one of the most common causes of high morbidity and mortality in the human population. The successful development of the doctrine of vaccines is predetermined by the needs of practical health care. Vaccination is an effective method of preventing vaccine-controlled diseases that have been proven by over 200 years of experience in vaccine prevention.
The purpose of this book was to systematize knowledge about vaccines in the context of modern development trends: the use of modern genetic engineering technologies, the problems of creating vaccines against new infections, expanding the scope of vaccines for the prevention and treatment of non-communicable diseases.
In this book, we tried to summarize the theoretical foundations of vaccine prophylaxis, the mechanisms of development of post-vaccination immunity and allergies, and ways to increase the immunogenicity of vaccines. It is hoped that this book will not only be of interest to those interested in vaccination issues but can also serve as a guide for researchers involved in the vaccine's development.
