modeling the transmission dynamics and control of rabies in china.human rabies was first recorded in ancient china in about 556 bc and is still one of the major public-health problems in china. from 1950 to 2015, 130,494 human rabies cases were reported in mainland china with an average of 1977 cases per year. it is estimated that 95% of these human rabies cases are due to dog bites. the purpose of this article is to provide a review about the models, results, and simulations that we have obtained recently on studying the transmission of rabies in china. we fi ...201728188732
re-emerging of rabies in shaanxi province, china, 2009 to explore the epidemiological, phylogeographic and migration characteristics of human rabies in shaanxi province, china from 2009 to 2015.201728112421
molecular characterization of a rabies virus isolate from a rabid dog in hanzhong district, shaanxi province, china.a canine rabies virus, shaanxi-hz-6, was isolated in shaanxi province, china, in 2009. its genome has been completely sequenced and found to be closely related to the china i rabies virus strains widely circulating in china. the genomic length was 11,923 base pairs, and the overall organization of the genome was similar to that of other rabies virus isolates. compared with isolates cq92 and j, 84 amino acid substitutions (7 in the n gene, 15 in p, 6 in m, 25 in g, 31 in l) were observed in strai ...201424352434
modeling the geographic spread of rabies in order to investigate how the movement of dogs affects the geographically inter-provincial spread of rabies in mainland china, we propose a multi-patch model to describe the transmission dynamics of rabies between dogs and humans, in which each province is regarded as a patch. in each patch the submodel consists of susceptible, exposed, infectious, and vaccinated subpopulations of both dogs and humans and describes the spread of rabies among dogs and from infectious dogs to humans. the existen ...201526020234
molecular characterization of viral g gene in emerging and re-emerging areas of rabies in china, 2007 to recent years (2007 to 2011), although the overall number of rabies cases in china has decreased, there is evidence of emerging or re-emerging cases in regions without previous rabies cases or with low incidence of rabies. to investigate the origin and the factors affecting the spread of rabies in china, specimens were collected from 2007 to 2011 from provinces with emerging and re-emerging cases and tested for the presence of the rabies virus. positive specimens were combined with sequences f ...201222684474
analysis of an outbreak of human rabies in 2009 in hanzhong district, shaanxi province, china.between march and august 2009, there was an outbreak of rabies in both humans and dogs in hanzhong district, shaanxi province, china. about 7300 humans were bitten by dogs and 20 died of rabies due to failure to perform postexposure prophylaxis. the local authorities therefore conducted a dog slaughter campaign. from a random selection of brains of dogs culled in the campaign, 0/27 tested positive for rabies virus by immunofluorescence. of two dogs known to have bitten humans, one was shown to c ...201120491584
