Abstract:

Rabies is a fatal viral zoonotic disease transmitted to humans through bites or scratches by infected domestic and wild animals. It is present in all continents except Antarctica and mostly endemic in Asian and African countries. In countries like India and China, dogs are one of the major reservoir hosts for the transmission of this disease. This disease is unpreventable with the lack of awareness and proper treatment measures are not being followed up with patients who reside particularly in rural areas. It is because most Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) needs are borne by patients who can least afford to yield. Rabies vaccines have come a long way following the development of a vaccine by Louis Pasteur in 1885 which is still being used to control rabies in animals and humans. This review provides the updated information about rabies disease, epidemiology, global geographical distribution and also has updated knowledge on rabies vaccines, rabies immunoglobulins, its availability and uses.
