Vaccination has been successful at controlling many of the world's diseases. However, there still remain many infectious diseases for which no licensed (US or EU) vaccine exists. Here I've selected 10 of them – arranged in no particular order – which I think are especially important due to their incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality and suitability of current treatment.
If you think there's an infectious disease with no vaccine that warrants a place on the list, you can leave your thoughts in the comments box below or in our Vaccine Nation group LinkedIn discussion.
If you're interested in hearing more about strategy and innovation in vaccines, including a talks on many of the diseases in the list, you might like to consider attending the World Vaccine Congress and Expo 2013 on the 16-18 April 2013, Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center, Washington DC.
