The history of vaccine development has seen many accomplishments, but there are still many diseases that are difficult to target, and new technologies are being brought to bear on them. Past successes have been largely due to elicitation of protective antibodies based on predictions made from the study of animal models, natural infections and seroepidemiology. Those predictions have often been correct, as indicated by the decline of many infections for which vaccines have been made over the… 
Vaccine and vaccination as a part of human life: In view of COVID‐19
TLDR
Along with the infections like malaria and HIV, effective immunization remains obscure and imparts a great challenge to science.
Clinical vaccine development
  • Seunghoon Han
  • Medicine, Biology
    Clinical and experimental vaccine research
  • 2015
TLDR
Physicians and others involved in the clinical development of vaccines should have sufficient understanding of the recent developmental trends in vaccination and the diseases of interest.
Adjuvants in Pediatric Vaccines
TLDR
Recombinant antigens, also known as adjuvants, are an important part of the development of improved or new vaccines against infectious diseases, alongside DNA or vector-based vaccines.
Whole-Cell Vaccine Preparation: Options and Perspectives.
TLDR
This chapter discusses different approaches for vaccine development, including the properties and preparation of whole-cell vaccines.
Therapeutic vaccines and immunotherapies: current challenges and new frontiers
TLDR
Comprehensive reviews with tangible examples of the current state of the field and a critical analysis of its evolution are found.
History of vaccination
  • S. Plotkin
  • Biology
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 2014
TLDR
Vaccines have a history that started late in the 18th century and from the late 19th century, vaccines could be developed in the laboratory and in the 21st century, molecular biology permits vaccine development that was not possible before.
Vaccine Development and Safety
TLDR
Advances in new sciences such as genomics, structural biology, novel adjuvant formulations, live vector vaccines, and computational studies have led to more detailed understanding of microbes and the host immune response and offer great promise in the design of future generation of effective and safe vaccines.
Developing effective vaccines: Cues from natural infection
TLDR
It is proposed that mimicking the natural course of infection as well as the inclusion of non-target antigens in vaccine formulations might generate heterogeneous pool of memory T cells to ensure long-lived protection.
Pediatric Vaccine Adjuvants: Components of the Modern Vaccinologist’s Toolbox
TLDR
The adjuvantants currently in clinical use, new adjuvants in development and potential uses and benefits of a new “adjuvant toolbox” for developing novel early life vaccines are summarized.

Immunological mechanisms of vaccination
TLDR
Recent advances in innate immunity have offered new insights about the mechanisms of vaccine-induced immunity and have facilitated a more rational approach to vaccine design.

TLDR
The multiplicity of strategies now available, discussed in this article, portends even more successful development of vaccines.
History of vaccine development
Vaccinology, the concept of a science ranging from the study of immunology to the development and distribution of vaccines, was a word invented by Jonas Salk. This book covers the history of the
Studies on an attenuated measles-virus vaccine. I. Development and preparations of the vaccine: technics for assay of effects of vaccination.
TLDR
The development and mode of preparation of an avianized attenuated measles-virus vaccine together with observations on the clinical and immunologic responses induced by this vaccine in susceptible monkeys and children are described.

Yellow Fever Vaccines: The Success of Empiricism, Pitfalls of Application, and Transition to Molecular Vaccinology
TLDR
The history of yellow fever vaccines provided a number of important paradigms for vaccine development in general, and research was initiated on the molecular basis of attenuation; progress is briefly reviewed here.
Development and clinical trials of the new human rabies vaccine of tissue culture (human diploid cell) origin.
TLDR
A new type of rabies vaccine for human prophylaxis was developed by workers at the Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, Pa and is virtually free from adverse reactions associated with the use of other types of Rabies vaccines.
Correlates of Protection Induced by Vaccination

  • 2010
TLDR
This paper attempts to summarize current knowledge about immune responses to vaccines that correlate with protection, finding some vaccines have no true correlates, but only useful surrogates, for an unknown protective response.
Formaldehyde treatment and safety testing of experimental poliomyelitis vaccines.
TLDR
The principles underlying the procedures being followed in preparing material for more extensive studies than have been carried out thus far are discussed and an elaboration of the specifications which have been prepared for processing the vaccine for this purpose are discussed.
