Rabies Treatment Breakthrough
Each year Rabies kills tens of thousands people worldwide. In the United States, only 2-3 people die of this viral disease yearly. Human rabies cases remain low in the United States because of rabies vaccination requirements for pets and because of the aggressive treatment of persons suspected of exposure to the virus. Once a person (or a pet) develops symptoms of rabies, it is always fatal. Recently, however, researchers at University of Georgia have developed a treatment protocol that has successfully treated mice after they began showing symptoms of rabies. The hope is that the protocol will save countless human lives too.
