This book presents the critical information attendant to developing vaccines using the genetic basis of immunology. The authors explore which techniques and experimental paths can be pursued so that efficacious results in human trials can be reasonably expected for the treatment of bacterial, fungal, viral, and autoimmune diseases, as well as cancers. A chapter on the genetic vaccination of neonates with virus or plasmid DNA is also included.
