This volume summarizes current cutting-edge methods related to carbohydrate-based vaccines, from the identification of a suitable carbohydrate antigen via the preparation of glycoconjugate vaccines to the characterization of vaccine candidates for their use in pre-clinical and clinical studies.

Thus, a movement towards synthetic carbohydrate vaccines is underway Synthetic glycans with uniform linkers can be used to manufacture well-characterized conjugates in a more economical, reproducible manner, free of bacterial contaminants (see Box 2) Cited by: It explores the challenges and rewards of understanding the importance of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates in health and disease, applying new knowledge from carbohydrate immunology in improving or developing novel sugar-based therapeutics, and vaccines and medicines.

About this book Introduction This volume summarizes current cutting-edge methods related to carbohydrate-based vaccines, from the identification of a suitable carbohydrate antigen via the preparation of glycoconjugate vaccines to the characterization of vaccine candidates for their use in pre-clinical and clinical studies.

Lipophilic polyfunctional carbohydrate core/templates have been designed and developed for drug/vaccine delivery. Three carbohydrate-based templates containing four protectedN-terminal arms were synthesised from glucose and galactose.

Given these immunization successes, one might question the continued interest in strategies to increase immunization levels. Buskas, T., Ingale, S. & Boons, G.

Carbohydrate-Based Vaccines and Immunotherapies comprehensively reviews the state of this exciting field, offering a single source for both the fundamental science and the latest developments.

An optimal glyconjugate vaccine stimulates a potent and specific immune response to a saccharide antigen, while irreversibly bound to the carrier protein.

In order to elicit a robust and potent immune response, it is important that the critical immunogenic epitopes in the saccharide antigen.

The book will systematize information presented at the Symposium, with inclusion of several additional papers on carbohydrate-based vaccines and carbohydrate-based treatment of some infections, and new data on chemistry of carbohydrates and computation of carbohydrate structures.

Since the preparation and clinical use of the first carbohydrate–protein conjugate vaccine in the s, the advantages of this class of vaccines, such as longer shelf life and protective immunity, fewer undesirable side-effects, and better protection in children, have been largely recognized.

Many malignant cell surface carbohydrates resulting from abnormal glycosylation patterns of certain diseases can serve as antigens for the development of vaccines against these diseases.

However, carbohydrate antigens are usually poorly immunogenic by themselves, thus they need to be covalently coupled with immunologically active carrier molecules to be functional. The most well established Cited by: 4. Dr Goddard-Borger said there were many documented cases where attaching carbohydrates to a protein improved its efficacy as a vaccine.

"It may be that a version of RTS,S with added carbohydrates. A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.

The agent stimulates the body's immune system to MeSH: D Considering the high importance of immune surveillance and immune escape in the evolution of cancer, the development of immunotherapeutic strategies has become a major field of research in recent decades.

There is a vast and often bewildering array of synthetic methods and reagents available to organic chemists today. The Best Synthetic Methods series allows the practising synthetic chemist to choose between all the alternatives and assess their real advantages and limitations.

Each chapter in Carbohydrates details a particular theme associated with carbohydrate synthesis. TUESDAY, Feb. 20, (HealthDay News) -- When it comes to shedding pounds, the debate has raged about whether low-carb diets are better than.

Nutritionists say the real issue isn't whether a food is low-carb, it's whether or not it's low-carb and high in saturated fat. Foods can be high in fat and be healthful, in moderation of course. This book, based on a discussion meeting organised by RSC Biotechnology and Carbohydrate Groups, brings together leading experts from the polysaccharide and glycoconjugate communities to review, discuss and assess in detail one specific topic, namely the importance of the stability and degradation of carbohydrate :   The term “vaccine hesitancy” (VH) is increasingly used to describe the spread of such vaccine reluctance.

But VH is an ambiguous notion and its theoretical background appears uncertain. To clarify this concept, we first review the current definitions of VH in the public health literature and examine its most prominent characteristics Cited by:.
