Vaccines For Enteric Diseases (VED 2015), will address the diverse aspects of vaccines to counter human enteric diseases. With regard to global public health issues, enteric diseases probably represent the first cause of infectious morbidity and second cause of infectious mortality worldwide. The added complications surrounding the increasing resistance to bacterial enteric pathogens to antibiotics are creating a worldwide trend that will require enhanced enteric vaccine strategies. Taking into consideration the major difficulties faced in drastically improving the sanitary conditions in large areas of the developing world which accounts for more than 95% of enteric infections, enteric vaccine strategies may become the prime preventative approach. Enteric infections also present problems in the industrialized world where the food chain continues to be compromised by enteric pathogens.

  • Vaccine Production Issues
  • Enteric Vaccine Construction and Design
  • DNA Delivery of Transgenes by Enteric Vaccines
  • Problems with and usage of enteric vaccines in developing countries
  • Specific treatments against acute diarrhea
  • New Developments and Initiatives with enteric vaccines

VED 2015 will be a major opportunity to:

  • Re-evaluate the diarrheal disease burden both in the industrialized and developing worlds
  • Discuss which diseases, depending on the area, would require an immunization strategy and if eradication or control of the selected disease is achievable by a vaccine
  • Discuss the state-of-the-art vaccine candidates currently available
  • Discuss obstacles to obtaining institutional and industrial support for these vaccines
  • Review of studies in developing countries
  • Air views on the lack of facilities for enteric vaccine trials
  • Discuss the distribution of vaccines and implementation policy in the developing world
