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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
