This book gives a very timely account of recent – partly unpublished – research on the development of gram-positive bacteria as vaccine delivery vehicles for mucosal immunization. The practical and theoretical considerations are discussed and the basic concepts behind the different approaches are compared by giving specific examples of the use of different non-pathogenic bacteria as vaccine vehicles. Thus, a common framework of concepts for a new generation of mucosal vaccines is provided.
