Immunity and Vaccine Development

  • Myron M. Levine
  • Nathaniel F. Pierce
Part of the Current Topics in Infectious Disease book series (CTID)


Public health authorities would like to have at their disposal a safe, practical, inexpensive, and highly effective vaccine to provide long-term protection against cholera. The Diarrheal Diseases Control Programme of the World Health Organization has targeted the development of an improved vaccine against cholera as a high priority.1 Such a vaccine to combat cholera is not yet in the public health armamentarium but, as shown in this chapter, several promising candidates are on the horizon.
