Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance in the Environment

Carlos F. Amábile-Cuevas
December 30, 2015

The presence of antibiotics, antibiotic resistance genes, and antibiotic resistant bacteria in the environment (i.e., outside of clinical settings, such as antibiotic-treated patients or antibiotic-impregnated locations, such as hospitals) is a cause of growing worldwide concern, as it reveals the...

Nanoparticulate Vaccine Delivery Systems

Martin J. D'Souza
June 01, 2015

Recent years have seen the development of novel technologies that use nanoparticles and microparticles to deliver vaccines by the oral and microneedle-based transdermal route of administration. These new technologies enable the formulation of vaccine particles containing vaccine antigens, without...

Immune System Modelling and Simulation

Filippo Castiglione, Franco Celada
April 07, 2015

The book describes a computational model of the immune system reaction, C-ImmSim, built along the lines of the computer model known as the Celada-Seiden model (CS-model).
