In today’s world, billions of people are at risk for infection from ancient and newly-emerging tropical infectious diseases. Vaccines have been shown to have an enormous impact on overcoming the global burden of diseases; however, because of both technologic limitations and economic realities, scarcely any new vaccines for these diseases have made successful transition from development into licensure. Therefore, the world remains burdened by high morbidity diseases, as well as underprepared for the next biological threat or pandemic.
Novel technologies, lowering the cost of goods and accelerating the process of vaccine development could help address these urgent problems. In this Special Issue, entitled “RNA Vaccines against Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases”, we will present a compilation of articles that will focus on the recent scientific and technical progress made in the field of mRNA vaccines targeting neglected and emerging tropical infectious diseases. We invite authors to share their knowledge and experience to highlight how mRNA technology can help to i) improve vaccine potency and safety, ii) accelerate vaccine development, and iii) lower the cost of research, development and manufacturing.
