Editorial Reviews

`This book is a valuable account of the current state of the production of vaccines against human pathogens and toxins and the long-term strategy to make them available for civil use. It is a useful starting point to stimulate discussion with the most up-to-date, international information.It is vital, however, that the ideas from this study are heeded and drawn upon to enable further work to be carried out to assess the feasibility of the VEP programme.'International Peacekeeping
