Rabies: an Old Disease for a New Generation
Show simple item recordShow full metadata
Louis Pasteur’s ghost must still grimace at the devastation rabies inflicts on the global population. It still kills – globally and in our backyards. Rabies is the 11th highest cause of infectious disease deaths in humans worldwide (Haupt, 1999). Yet, it has been my career experience while chasing this virus, that the general citizen in the United States (US) doesn’t consider the threat as “immediate” as perhaps they should. I hope to bring a renewed “face” to this old disease with respect to epidemiology, testing, and prevention/treatment.
