human exposure to potential rabies virus transmitters in olinda, state of pernambuco, between 2002 and 2006.the aim of the present study was to evaluate the data on human exposure to potential rabies virus transmitters in olinda, state of pernambuco, brazil. data from 7,062 patients who underwent antirabies prophylactic treatment in olinda between 2002 and 2006 were analyzed. as expected, dogs and cats were involved in most of the cases; i.e. 82.3 and 16.3%, respectively. attacks by nonhuman primates, bats and other species (unspecified) were also reported. among the 7,062 patients who underwent antir ...200718200411
rabies virus in molossus molossus (chiroptera: molossidae) in the state of pernambuco, northeastern brazil.rabies virus was detected in bats (molossus molossus) from an urban area in the city of recife, state of pernambuco, brazil. four individuals were found during the day in visible, non-habitual places, lying on the ground, but still alive. no contact occurred with people or animals. of these, only two were identified; it was not possible to identify two specimens, since they were incinerated prior to identification. diagnosis was positive by direct immunofluorescence and intracerebral inoculation ...201121860906
phylogeographic dispersion and diversification of rabies virus lineages associated with dogs and crab-eating foxes (cerdocyon thous) in brazil.genetic lineages of dog-associated rabv still circulate in some areas of the north and northeast of brazil. in parallel, another rabv lineage circulates among wild canids in the northeast, particularly the crab-eating fox (cerdocyon thous). although previous studies and phylogenetic analyses have been carried out, the way in which these lineages are dispersed temporally and spatially remained to be elucidated. in this study, rabv n gene sequences isolated from canids in north and northeast brazi ...201323749047
