Why not share! But the experienced editors of this book have achieved this goal. Lambert is a vaccine immunologist at the University of Geneva. The Vaccine Book first covers the impact of disease, including chapters on vaccine economics and finance policy, and the potential for widespread vaccination to change the epidemiology of the target disease. One example is the herd effect of childhood rubella vaccination, which postpones infection in nonimmunized women into their childbearing years.
The next section reviews the immune system, and here lies the book's greatest disappointment. Its chapter on basic immunology is confusing and presumes familiarity with terms and concepts without antecedent explanation. It lacks a logical flow in describing what is yet known of the infinitely?
Readers hoping for a chapter-length "Immunology " course would be advised to turn elsewhere 1 , 2. The phased stages of clinical trials are covered in excellent chapters by accomplished authors with practical insights. Another section shows how knowledge of microbial pathogenesis can affect vaccine design, including Rolf Zinkernagel's well-written chapter on immunologic memory. Another chapter on parasite pathogenesis, however, delves too deeply into the immunity of Leishmania as a case study.
Stanley Plotkin's thoughtful overview of the 11 disease-specific chapters annotates new vaccine technologies as well as current issues of debate, such as replacing the live oral polio vaccine worldwide with injectable, inactivated polio vaccine once the eradication program breaks the chain of wild-virus circulation, to avoid reverse mutations and resulting vaccine-associated paralysis.
Plotkin also provides a comprehensive table of vaccine types currently available or in active clinical development. Remaining sections of The Vaccine Book cover the ethics of research and use of vaccines, their safety and controversies, and their introduction into healthcare systems.
The editors conclude with major future challenges, such as circumventing microbial escape, vaccines for chronic and autoimmune diseases, and maintaining public support of immunization in the face of anti-vaccine movements.
