Evaluation of Vaccines Against Enteric Infections: A Clinical and Public Health Research Agenda for Developing Countries

This article, from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, provides a review of the enteric vaccines currently available and their lack of use in developing countries. The author purports that the reasons for this are multiple and include financial and political constraints. Also important is the need for more cogent evidence on the performance of enteric vaccines in developing country populations. The article addresses several research questions, including vaccine performance and safety, that could help to better inform the policy debate about the introduction of present and future enteric vaccines.
