rabies in the united states and canada, 1983.primarily as a result of organized canine rabies vaccination, leash laws, and other preventive procedures aimed at the canine population, the number of rabid dogs decreased markedly in the last thirty years (figure 10). this decrease was accompanied by a similar marked reduction in human rabies (table 2, figure 11). as domestic animal rabies declined, rabies in wildlife increased. since 1958 the number of cases of rabid wildlife surpassed domestic rabies cases, and today they account for over 85 ...19853932839

human rabies--south carolina, 2011.on december 3, 2011, a south carolina woman visited a local emergency department (ed) with an overnight history of shortness of breath, diaphoresis, chills, and intermittent paresthesia. the patient was transferred to a referral hospital, where she became comatose and developed multiorgan failure. the patient did not report a history of an animal bite. however, family members subsequently revealed that bats had been observed in the patient's home during the previous summer. family members also r ...201323945770
community survey of rabies knowledge and exposure to bats in homes - sumter county, south carolina, usa.subsequent to a human rabies death in sumter county, south carolina, we assessed the frequency of exposures to bats in homes and citizens' rabies knowledge. a self-administered survey was mailed to 6033 randomly selected sumter county addresses. the survey inquired about household exposures to bats and respondents' rabies knowledge. surveys were returned by mail for descriptive analysis. of 597 respondents, 3.5% (21/597) reported having bats living in (2.8% or 17/597) or entering their homes (2. ...201524815566

proposed field evaluation of a rabies recombinant vaccine for raccoons (procyon lotor): site selection, target species characteristics, and placebo baiting trials.prior to a limited field application of an orally-administered vaccinia-rabies glycoprotein (v-rg) recombinant virus vaccine for wildlife, background data were obtained for the proposed site on parramore island, virginia (usa). mammalian target and nontarget species, potentially at risk for exposure to vaccine were inventoried. placebo baiting trials with a fishmeal polymer bait resulted in high bait disturbance (88 to 100%), primarily by raccoons (procyon lotor), with infrequent visitation and ...19892810556

prerequisites for oral immunization of free-ranging raccoons (procyon lotor) with a recombinant rabies virus vaccine: study site ecology and bait system development.a model baiting system suitable for the delivery of an oral rabies vaccine to free-ranging raccoons (procyon lotor) was developed and tested on barrier islands in south carolina (usa). features of barrier island physiography and ecology were studied relative to selective bait deployment and site biosecurity. capture-mark-recapture data were obtained from 228 raccoons. raccoon density estimates, using a modified census assessment technique, were one raccoon per 1.8 to 2.7 ha. mean (+/- se) and ra ...19921548804
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
