What is rabies? Rabies is an encephalitis, or brain disease, which is caused by the rabies virus. It is a fatal condition caused after being bitten by an infected animal, usually a rabid dog or a bat. There is a vaccination against the disease, but once symptoms of rabies have developed the condition is almost always fatal - and the few people who have survived have suffered serious long-term disabilities.

163. Rabies On The Rise
rabies cases in animals increased dramatically between 1990 and 1993.
Rabies on the Rise
by Audrey T. Hingley After years of decline in America, a form of viral encephalitis transmitted through infected animal saliva is on the rise. The life-threatening disease is rabies. According to John Krebs, a public health scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rabies cases in animals increased dramatically between 1990 and 1993. In 1990 there were 4,880 reported animal deaths from rabies; that figure jumped to 9,495 three years later. With treatment, human deaths from rabies are rare in the United States. One death in 1990, three deaths in 1991, one death in 1992, and three deaths in 1993 were recorded, with six people dying in 1994 and four in 1995 from the disease. Charles Rupprecht, V.M.D., Ph.D., chief of CDC's rabies section, says education is the key to preventing the disease. Rupprecht says only one inadequately treated person is known to have recovered completely from rabies and escaped death. "In 1970 Matthew Winkler was exposed [to rabies], treated [with postexposure vaccine], and because vaccines were not as good then, experienced a vaccine failure. He recovered despite the vaccine failure, which is a far different thing than catching the disease, [not being treated,] and recovering," he points out. "Some people question to this day whether that case meets all the criteria [of a human known to survive rabies without treatment]." Over the years, scientists have improved both the effectiveness and safety of human rabies vaccines, regulated by the Food and Drug Administration as biologics. Today's vaccines are highly effective and produce few side effects. They work by causing the immune system to produce antibodies that neutralize the rabies virus before it causes the disease. Unlike most vaccines, which are given before disease exposure occurs, rabies vaccine is usually administered after someone has been exposed to the disease. A preexposure vaccine series designed for people considered high-risk for exposure to rabiessuch as veterinarians, researchers, forest rangers, animal control officers, cave explorers, animal handlers, or those who spend time in countries where rabies is prevalentis also available.

Rabies remains a potentially serious public health problem in Nebraska, and is of concern to a variety of professional and occupational groups in our state, including physicians, veterinarians, farmers and ranchers. Rabies control
Medical and veterinary care providers should combine epidemiologic data on animal rabies in the region where the exposure occurred with an assessment of the circumstances surrounding the actual patient exposure when formulating post-exposure prophylaxis recommendations. Dog and cat bites represent the most common potential exposure to rabies. Vaccination of pets remains the most sensible measure to reduce human exposure. Other important rabies-control measures include stray animal control, education of the general public regarding wild animal contact, and legislation controlling the acquisition of wild animals as pets (most notably raccoons, black footed ferrets, skunks, and foxes). Criteria for assessing rabies exposure
The following definitions are provided to assist health care personnel in deciding on the need for post-exposure prophylaxis.

Rabies Vectors The Rabies Viruses Pathogenicity ... The Diagnosis of Rabies
Rabies is a very old disease, perhaps as old as humankind. The word rabies has its origin in Sanskrit, 3000 years BC: "rabhas" means "to do violence".
The Greek word for rabies,"lyssa" derives from the root "lud" which means "violent".
The first description of the disease dates from the 23rd. century BC in the Eshuma Code of Babylon. Antiquity, did know rabies as well as the link between human disease and animals, especially dogs. But, it is a famous Italian scholar, Girolamo Fracastoro, born in Verona, who described the disease, which obviously he had seen in many patients, and its routes of contamination in 1530, i.e. 350 years before Louis Pasteur.
In the 19th. century, canine or street rabies was a scourge everywhere, especially in Europe. Fear of rabies, related to the mode of contamination, the absence of any efficacious treatment, was almost irrational.
Patients killed themselves or were killed when bitten by a dog believed to be rabid. In this world of irrational terror the first post-exposure treatment in 1885 gave Louis Pasteur an international aura that his previous major scientific works had not been able to provide.

[_private/navbar.htm] Rabies and Your Pet Rabies is a potentially fatal virus that can be spread between animals and to humans. Most mammals can spread the disease but it is most often spread by raccoons, foxes, and skunks. Rabies is most commonly spread by bites. Because of the seriousness of this disease, it is necessary by law to have your pet vaccinated against the disease. Even if your pet never goes outdoors, it is very wise to be sure you and your pet are protected from rabies. What can you do to protect your pet? It is quite simple. Get your pet vaccinated regularly. Your veterinarian will advise you when the shots are necessary. The first rabies vaccine is given during your pet's first year of life. A booster follows one year later, and then every 3 years.

Disease Control and Environmental Epidemiology Division
Rabies is a preventable viral disease of mammals most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. The vast majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, and foxes. Domestic animals account for less than 10% of the reported rabies cases, with cats, cattle, and dogs most often reported rabid. In Colorado, the primary reservoir for rabies is the bat. Instances of rabies among other wild and domestic animals are rare. Rodents and lagomorphs (hamsters, guinea pigs, squirrels, rabbits, and hares) have never been positive for rabies in Colorado and are rarely positive anywhere in the country. The last reported cases of rabies occurred in Colorado in the following animals: dog (1974), cat (1985), raccoon (1963), fox (1996), skunk (1994), and human (1931). Rabies virus infects the central nervous system, causing encephalopathy and ultimately death. Symptoms of rabies in humans are initially nonspecific, consisting of fever, headache, and general malaise. As the disease progresses, neurological symptoms appear and may include insomnia, anxiety, confusion, slight or partial paralysis, excitation, hallucinations, agitation, hypersalivation, difficulty swallowing, and hydrophobia (fear of water). Death usually occurs within days of the onset of symptoms.

Rabies (hydrophobia) Rabies info Rabies home Rabies fact sheet Rabies statistics On this page Rabies is a viral disease affecting the central nervous system. It is transmitted from infected mammals to man and is invariably fatal once symptoms appear. Fortunately, only a few cases are reported each year in the United States. Rabies is almost always contracted by exposure to a rabid animal. The exposure is usually through a bite, but scratches and saliva contact with broken skin are also possible routes. More info/links Disease reporting Health-care providers AND clinical laboratories are required to report cases and suspect cases of rabies to local health departments within 24 hours of diagnosis. On weekends and holidays, call 503/731-4030 to reach the state health department doctor on call.

        What is rabies?
        Rabies is a viral infection of certain warm-blooded animals and is caused by a virus in the Rhabdoviridae family. It attacks the nervous system and, once symptoms develop, it is 100 percent fatal in animals, if left untreated. In North America, rabies occurs mainly in skunks, raccoons, foxes, and bats. In some areas, these wild animals infect domestic cats, dogs, and livestock. In the United States, cats are more likely than dogs to be rabid.
