Abstract

Immunity against infectious agents may be humoral or cell-associated. Immunization Against Infectious Disease, which appeared as the issue of the British Medical Bulletin in May 1969, covers both aspects of immunological practice.

A group of leading microbiologists from Great Britain and her commonwealth countries, led by G. D. Evans, contributed this series of review articles which survey immunization against infectious diseases. Each paper deals with one or more related immunizing agents, in theory and practice. They discuss the nature, production, complications, efficacy, and future prospects of each immunizing agent. The authors are generally critical in their review of the literature, which makes the symposium valuable to readers with average background knowledge in microbiology.

After a preliminary discussion on world problems in viral vaccines and the search for protective antigens, each individual agent is described: smallpox, rabies, poliovirus, arboviruses, measles, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, Calmette-Guérin bacillus, typhoid-paratyphoid, cholera, and some protozoa (mycoplasmas
