Immune responses required for mucosal protection can differ vastly depending on the individual pathogen
Immune responses required for mucosal protection can differ vastly depending on the individual pathogen. For some mucosal pathogens, including acute self-limiting infections, high-titer neutralizing Abs that enter tissue parenchyma or transude into the mucosal lumen are sufficient for clearing cell-free virus. However, for pathogens causing chronic infections such as HIV, hepatitis C virus, herpes viruses, mycobacteria, and fungal and parasitic infections, a single arm of the immune response generated by systemic vaccination may be insufficient for protection.

Protective immunity against mucosal pathogens will require novel vaccine strategies to induce mucosal immune . We as well as others have shown that protective mucosal immune responses are most effectively induced by mucosal immunization through oral, intranasal (.
Protective immunity against mucosal pathogens will require novel vaccine strategies to induce mucosal immune responses tailored to the anatomic location and the threat of the invading pathogen (16 –32).

Surprisingly what separates us from the open environment all around us sometimes is a single layer of epithelial cells. It is at these seemingly fragile sites that most pathogens, including HIV, influenza, emerging and biodefense agents, gain access to our inside milieu. While there are major similarities between the cells and the immune responses generated at the mucosal membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts together with the genitourinary tract, there are also important differences. Knowledge of these differences and similarities is required in order to understand the interactions between us, as the host, and the pathogens that attack through each tract, and how our immune system reacts to each of them. Whether we want to devise rational prophylactic or therapeutic vaccines or treatments to either prevent or treat mucosal infections we must acquire such knowledge. This is the rationale behind putting this book together.
This book will provide the readers in the areas of vaccinology, virology, bacteriology, epidemiology, immunology and mucosal immunology within academia (undergraduate, graduate, post doctoral fellows and professors), as well as preclinical and clinical scientists in vaccine and drug industries a thorough appreciation of the mucosal immune system and its importance in protecting humans against mucosal pathogens.
