In this study, we developed an adjuvanted hydrogel-based pDNA nanoparticulate vaccine for rabies protection and immunocontraception. In vivo, we observed an immune response skewed toward a Th2 type, in contrast to the Th1 type in our previous pDNA study. The observation was verified by the IgG2a/IgG1 ratio (

Hey everyone! I recently got hired at a small animal clinic after having interned there for about 2 months. I know that many vets and RVTs have their rabies pre-exposure vaccine and I was wondering if I should consider getting it. I will only be working at the clinic for a few months because I have to go back to school so I just didn't know if I should get it or wait for a few years. I'm definitely a slight hypochondriac and during my internship I have been scratched by a handful of cats... Should I get the rabies pre-exposure vaccine?

Abstract This two-day workshop, co-sponsored by NICEATM and IABS-NA, brought together over 60 international scientists from government, academia, and industry to advance alternative methods for human and veterinary Rabies Virus Vaccine (RVV) potency testing. On day one, workshop presentations focused on regulatory perspectives related to in vitro potency testing, including recent additions to the European Pharmacopoeia (5.2.14) that provide a scientific rationale for why in vivo methods may be less suitable for vaccine quality control than appropriately designed in vitro methods. Further presentations reviewed the...

Authors: Daniel-Ribeiro CT, Lima MM, Pays JF Abstract Despite the criticism and reservations made about him still nowadays, Louis Pasteur may be considered one of the most important scientists of the last two centuries in public health, even if the work of the numerous scientists who preceded him have largely contributed to the successes he obtained without following too much to the rules of deontology and ethics currently in force in the world of research and medicine. He has definitively put down, by his experiments, the "theory of spontaneous generation" in force since antiquity, validated that of &quo...

Abstract Vero cells are nowadays widely used in the production of human vaccines. They are considered as one of the most productive and flexible continuous cell lines available for vaccine manufacturing. However, these cells are anchorage dependent, which greatly complicates upstream processing and process scale-up. Moreover, there is a recognized need to reduce the costs of vaccine manufacturing to develop vaccines that are affordable worldwide. The use of cell lines adapted to suspension growth contributes to reach this objective. The current work describes the adaptation of Vero cells to suspension culture in d...

MONKEY BITES AND INJURIES IN THE ZAGREB ANTIRABIES CLINIC IN 2014. Acta Clin Croat. 2018 Sep;57(3):593-601 Authors: Vodopija R, Vojvodić D, Sokol K, Racz A, Gregurić Beljak Ž, Baranj N, Mahović J, Ulaga B Abstract - Travelling around the world and visiting distant places and countries (especially national parks, parks of nature, natural resorts, etc.) sometimes may result in animal bites and injuries from the species which are not usually represented as the source of human rabies cases, such as monkeys. In the last ten to fifteen years, monkey bites and injuries present an unpleasant experience and...

CONCLUSIONS: Zenica-Doboj Canton is a rabies-free region. Due to the high rate of stray animals not undergoing veterinary observations, the non-existence of a unique dog registry, and the consequent lack of information about stray animals in terms of number, vaccination, neutering, and euthanasia, there is an urgent need for improving the prevention and control of rabies within the One Health framework.

Abstract Adjuvants are important components of vaccination strategies because they boost and accelerate the immune response. The aim of this study was to investigate the adjuvant activity of PCP-II, a polysaccharide isolated from Poria cocos, together with an inactivated rabies vaccine. The polysaccharide PCP-II was compared with the common veterinary rabies vaccine adjuvant Alhydrogel by co-administration of either adjuvant with the inactivated rabies virus rCVS-11-G to mice via the intramuscular route. Blood samples were collected to determine the virus-neutralizing antibody (VNA) titer and assess activation of ...
