Using the techniques of molecular biology, effective modern vaccines are being developed by a variety of innovative methods that circumvent some of the problems associated with conventional vaccines. Live recombinant vaccines, which are prepared by isolating an immunogenic gene(s) from a disease organism and inserting it into a vector, are most promising. Such vaccines can provide immunity to agents that cannot be reliably attenuated or inactivated without destroying immunogenicity and allow one to distinguish vaccinated from infected animals.
