Virus-like Particles in Vaccine Development
Part of the Immunology eBook Collection
Edited by Franco Buonaguro & Luigi Buonaguro
Alternative strategies to vaccines based on live attenuated or inactivated pathogens are constantly being developed with an aim to increase safety without significant loss of immunogenicity. Among these, virus-like particles (VLPs) offer several valuable features and represent a very appealing model. The eight timely and in-depth chapters of this book have been contributed by leaders in the field and cover a range of current topics in VLP-based vaccine development and clinical assessment for a range of human infectious diseases.
