human antirabies treatment in the united states, 1972.data were examined on 965 persons treated in six states (delaware, florida, georgia, illinois, north dakota, and south carolina) and new york city in 1972 for possible rabies exposure. males 10-19 years were found to be the group at greatest risk, and exposures occurred most frequently during the warm months. dogs, other domestic animals, and wildlife were about equally responsible for human exposures in the six states, but 99% of the exposures in new york city involved dogs. antirabies postexp ...1979432411

intradermal use of human diploid cell vaccine for preexposure rabies immunizations.in a study involving 240 faculty, students, and staff at the university of georgia college of veterinary medicine, 0.1 ml of a rabies human diploid cell vaccine administered intradermally on days 0, 7, and 28 induced adequate rabies antibody (greater than or equal to 0.5 iu/ml of serum) in all subjects by day 49. there were no significant differences in mean titers between groups of individuals with different rabies immunization histories by using a newly proposed index system for reporting such ...19827161170
rabies surveillance in the united states during 1996.in 1996, 49 states, the district of columbia, and puerto rico reported 7,124 cases of rabies in non-human animals and 4 cases in human beings to the centers for disease control and prevention. nearly 92% (6,550 cases) were wild animals, whereas 8% (574 cases) were domestic species. the total number of reported cases decreased 9.6% from that of 1995 (7,881 cases). although much of the decline was the result of fewer reported cases of rabies in raccoons, fewer cases were also reported among most g ...19979412679
rabies among infrequently reported mammalian carnivores in the united states, 1960-2000.most cases of rabies reported annually in the united states occur among three groups of carnivores--raccoons (procyon lotor), skunks (mephitis, spilogale, and putorius), foxes (vulpes, urocyon, and alopex)--and among bats (numerous species). however, between 1960 and 2000, a total of 2,851 cases of rabies in 17 other carnivore taxa were reported to the centers for disease control and prevention, atlanta, georgia (usa), from 49 states, the district of columbia, and puerto rico. three species of t ...200312910751
rabies surveillance in the united states during 2002.during 2002, 49 states and puerto rico reported 7,967 cases of rabies in nonhuman animals and 3 cases in human beings to the centers for disease control and prevention, an increase of 7.2% from the 7,436 cases in non-human animals and 1 case in a human being reported in 2001. more than 92% (7,375 cases) were in wild animals, whereas 7.4% (592) were in domestic species (compared with 93.3% in wild animals and 6.7% in domestic species in 2001). compared with cases reported in 2001, the numbers of ...200314690203
the raccoon an emerging rabies host.the geographic distribution of enzootic rabies in raccoons is currently limited to florida and georgia. the enzootic area has steadily expanded northward into georgia during the 1960's. an epizootic in a population of raccoons closely associated with the human residents of a small, off-shore island was investigated. forty-seven raccoons from the island were confirmed rabies positive by the state laboratory from january 22 to may 20, 1969. about 10 percent of the raccoons trapped during the peak ...197016512166
genetic tracking of the raccoon variant of rabies virus in eastern north america.to gain insight into the incursion of the raccoon variant of rabies into the raccoon population in three canadian provinces, a collection of 192 isolates of the raccoon rabies virus (rrv) strain was acquired from across its north american range and was genetically characterized. a 516-nucleotide segment of the non-coding region between the g and l protein open reading frames, corresponding to the most variable region of the rabies virus genome, was sequenced. this analysis identified 119 differe ...201121624778
rabies risk assessment of exposures to a bat on a commercial airliner - united states, august 2011.on august 5, 2011, a bat flew through the cabin of a commercial airliner minutes after takeoff during an early morning flight from wisconsin to georgia, potentially exposing the passengers and flight crew to rabies virus. three days later, the wisconsin division of public health (wdph) requested assistance from cdc to conduct a rabies risk assessment for the passengers, flight crew, and ground crew members associated with the flight. no one was determined to have been exposed to rabies virus bas ...201222495227
