In this study, the potential application of this micelle for the treatment of both Penicillin-sensitive and -resistant PM was studied. To address BBB-targeting and -crossing issues, PEGylated Nano-BA12K was formulated with a specific brain-targeting peptide (rabies virus glycopeptide-29, RVG29) and a P-glycoprotein inhibitor (Pluronic® P85 unimers) to construct a mixed micellar system (RVG29-Nano-BAP85). RVG29-Nano-BAP85 demonstrated a strong antibacterial potency against 13 clinical isolates of S. pneumonia, even higher than that of Penicillin G, a conventional anti-PM agent. RVG29-Nano-BAP85 had more cellular uptake ...

We report the clinical and radiological findings of eight patients with laboratory-confirmed rabies who survived the illness. With the exception of one patient who recovered with mild sequelae, all survivors had poor functional outcomes.

Nonetheless, there is an urgent need to focus on preventive strategies to reduce the burden of this dreadful disease in rabies-endemic countries. PMID: 30398147 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
