Partha’s Immunization Digest

by A Parthasarathy, Alok Gupta

This book focusses on the Partha’s immunization digest. Immunization has been regarded as the greatest success story of 20th century. Immunization of children, adolescents and adults is a fascinating field of medical practice, which needs to be updated with latest information periodically. The twin objectives of any immunization program or practice are protection of the individual vaccine against the targeted vaccine preventable disease (VPD) and to control, eliminate and eradicate the targeted VPD at the community level. This book consists of 10 chapters, that includes immunization, basics of vaccinology, immunization schedules, vaccines, immunoglobulins and antisera, immunization in special clinical circumstances, adverse events following immunization, the cold chain for vaccines, vaccine preventable disease surveillance, newer developments in immunization and future vaccines. Advances in molecular biology and genetic engineering are revitalizing the concept of immunization. Novel vaccine delivery systems have been developed. Knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) on immunization for doctors and parents have been enriched through continuing medical education (CME) of vaccine updates and parent health education and through the vigorous media advertisements of the vaccine manufactures.
