Integrative Immunology and Vaccines is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers of the highest quality and significance in all areas of experimental immunology and vaccines, i.e., primary immune deficiency, innate and adaptive immunity, inflammation, host defense, vaccination, immunodysregulation, clinical immunology, Human Immunology, immunologic interventions, autoimmunity, diagnosis to immunologically mediated diseases, Human Vaccine Trials, Veterinary Vaccines, Cancer Vaccines, Vaccine Adjuvants, Vaccine regulatory issues, Preclinical vaccine studies, Childhood vaccines, HIV vaccines, Malaria vaccines, TB vaccines, etc.
Aim and Scope
Integrative Immunology and Vaccines aims to advance the understanding and application of specific immunological mechanisms, the role of antigens and antigenic epitopes in eliciting biological responses, immune correlates of protection and activity, strategic regulatory and clinical development considerations, adjuvants, formulations, delivery and devices, and other issues and findings relating to accelerating the discovery and advanced development through licensure, distribution and use of efficacious vaccines and immune based therapies. The essential criteria for publication will be clarity, experimental soundness and novelty. Results contradictory to current accepted thinking or ideas divergent from actual dogmas will be considered for publication provided that they are based on solid experimental findings.
Integrative Immunology and Vaccines mainly focuses on following topics, but are not limited to: Immunology mechanisms, Animal models for immunologic diseases, Viral immunology, Immunopathogenesis, Vaccine development and efficacy evaluation, Immune responses to vaccines, Vaccine technology, Vaccine vectors, Adjuvants and immunomodulators, Prophylactic vaccines, Therapeutic vaccines, AIDS vaccines, Gene vaccines, Vaccines in bioterrorism, Regulatory affairs, Commercial utilization, Policy, Safety, Epidemiology, Synthetic peptides, Recombinant antigens, New immunogens, Vaccine safety efficacy and clinical trials, Immunity to infection, Immunomodulation, Clinical immunology, Computational immunology, Diagnostic immunology, Immunotherapy, Testicular immunology, etc.
