Adult Immunization (Monograph)

by Alladi Mohan, SK Sharma, RK Singal, AK Agarwal

Immunization of adults against several diseases that are still a major public health problem in the developing countries, such as India, is a controversial issue. Reliable epidemiological data regarding the burden of diseases in general and infectious diseases in particular, from India are lacking. Sparse published data are available regarding the efficacy and safety of various adult immunization strategies. Furthermore, there is paucity of data regarding objective monitoring of the adequacy of immunization (e.g. optimal antibody titre) against various infectious diseases. Keeping these issues in mind, the present monograph has been conceived to give a balanced overview regarding the current state-of-the-art evidence on various aspects related to adult immunization and to provide a basis for rational scientific practice. It is hoped that practising clinicians and postgraduate students will find this monograph a valuable reference manual.
