Rabies offers a complete account of one of the oldest known diseases threatening public health today. Unlike most research-oriented descriptions of rabies, this book provides a narrative about the disease and its etiologic agent, encompassing the historical background to recent developments. The emphasis on the basic biology and molecular virology of the disease is intended to convey an understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in the disease - essential information for diagnosis and prevention strategies. Current methods used in defining geographic origins and animal species of rabies viruses in wildlife are presented, along with diagnostic methods for identifying the strain of virus based on its genomic sequence and antigenic structure. The latest approved methods for controlling rabies in wildlife species are also covered. This account of rabies will interest clinicians, public health advisors, epidemiologists, research scientists, and anyone involved in diagnosing, treating, controlling, and preventing this disease.
* A history of rabies from antiquity to the modern era
* Basic biology and molecular virology
* Epidemiological aspects
* Pathogenesis and pathology of the disease
* Clinical manifestations and diagnostic evaluation in humans and animals
