Conference paper


Most vaccines are designed as a prophylactic measure, that is, to stimulate the immune response so that on subsequent exposure of the vaccinated individual to the infectious agent involved, the extent of infection is so low that disease does not occur. There is also increasing interest in designing vaccines that may be effective as a therapeutic measure.
