For many years, a small group of research workers worldwide has been responsible for the development of adjuvants or immunoprotectors for use in experimental vaccines and in the routine production of antisera. Adjuvants interact with cells of the immune system and trigger a number of biological effects, some of which are desirable and some less so. There is a need to keep the latter under control, although it is doubtful if there is such a thing as an innocuous adjuvant. Studies have also included such problems as isolation, preparation, dose responses, adverse reactions and practical applications. Much of this information is spread throughout the literature over the last 25 years, and this book aims, therefore, to bring the information together through contributions from a group of internationally renowned scientists. This book deals with the well-documented adjuvant or immuno-potentiating preparations which have been developed by leading groups throughout the world. Among others these preparations include: aluminum absorbents; black copolymers; Freund’s complete and incomplete adjuvants; muramyl dipeptide and its synthetic derivatives; ISCOMs; lipid A; liposomes; and saponins. The benefits and pitfalls associated with the use of each of these different adjuvants are described which will help to prevent their misuse in laboratory studies and the potential use of adjuvants in AIDS vaccines is also covered. The book also aims to provide a source of practical hints for and uses by immunologists, microbiologists, parasitologists and vaccinologists. In addition those interested in developing new adjuvant preparations, either natural or synthetic, will find details within the book on the types of assay required to authenticate an adjuvant effect. The book may also enable regulatory bodies to assess the validity of tests for a variety of possible contraindications associated with the more reactive preparations when formulating quality control regulations.

Annotation Vaccinologists and pharmacologists describe the preparation, characterization, and evaluation of alternative vaccine adjuvants for use in preclinical studies. Each chapter reviews a single, adjuvant and suggests why it might be preferred for a given antigen, depending on what type of immune response is desired. Alternate adjuvant choices are also presented. Methods are described in full detail and range from simple to complex preparation processes. Methods are presented by scientists who originally invented or developed them.

A comprehensive account of the main classes of synthetic adjuvants, presenting the findings and experimental data needed to evaluate these substances for use in medicine and immunoregulation research. Classifies synthetic adjuvants according to chemical structure, namely: muramylpeptides, nucleic acid derivatives, sulfur-containing compounds, polymers, heterocyclic and aromatic compounds and lipids. Stressses the main pharmacological properties of adjuvants as well as their effects on nonspecific immune processes. Also reviews the potential use of adjuvants in clinical and veterinary applications.

An authoritative survey of the scientific background for therapeutic cancer vaccines, the challenges to their development, and their current uses in treating cancer. The authors examine the basic issues that effect all vaccines (such as immune adjuvants and prime-boost strategies), describe the methods for antigen discovery, and review the preclinical development phases for each major vaccine strategy. They also spell out the clinical results for cancer vaccines now beginning to be used in the treatment of many common cancers.

Advances in breast cancer research, achieved through the progress of knowledge and development of new therapies, have been translated into improved quality of care for breast cancer patients. Clinical investigations and clinical trials have made the largest contribution to the body of knowledge that finds its way to the patient. Never before during the past decades of management of breast cancer has there been such a fruitful intellectual cross-fertilization of ideas among individuals involved in the generation of hypotheses, basic research, development of drugs and treatments, conduct of clinical trials, and statistical evaluation - the results of all of which are now translated into progress in clinical care. Even issues such as the quality of life of breast cancer patients, once the domain for few, are now being openly addressed by trials and discussed in a much broader forum. The IVth International Conference on the Adjuvant Therapy of Primary Breast Cancer, also known as the st. Gallen Conference, was again attended by more than 800 scientists and clinicians interested in this broad spectrum of breast cancer research and the interactions between such diverse fields of interest and specialties as cancer pathology, molecular biology, and psychosocial oncology. This volume collects findings and conclusions presented at the conference.
