Case Report: Survival from Rabies: Case Series from India.

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. The reported survival from rabies in recent years may reflect an increased awareness of the disease and greater access to better critical care facilities in rabies-endemic countries. 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]

Humans and monkeys are dead-end hosts for these viruses. Recent trends in epidemiological data suggest both virus incidences are steadily increasing and their geographical distribution expandi...

We report here a rare tri-allelic variant at the D8S1179 locus in a 6-month-old female child, observed during routine paternity testing in the Indian Tamil population.DNA eluted from the blood samples collected on FTA elute microcards were subjected to STR typing for autosomal and sex STR loci using the commercial AmpFlSTR Identifiler Plus kit and the Promega PowerPlex® Fusion kit. Capillary electrophoresis was carried out in ABI 3130xl Genetic Analyzer and genotyped using GeneMapper ID-X Software v1.5. Copy number variations and aneuploidy status of chromosome 8 were analyzed using Multiplex ligation-dependent probe a...
