Early detection and reactive vaccination is the current Australian policy to eradicate an incursion. Early detection in this region is challenging, so pre-emptive vaccination might be an effective strategy. The NPA dog population also has a heterogeno...

Abstract Neurological complications related to anti-rabies vaccine are uncommon. The involvement of the optic nerve is extremely rare. It has been occasionally reported after Semple's vaccine administration due to the presence of highly antigenic sheep brain tissue in the vaccine. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of optic neuritis after chick embryo-derived anti-rabies vaccine. PMID: 31495273 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

uster Vos Finke Müller : To evaluate the long-term immunogenicity of the live-attenuated, oral rabies vaccine SPBN GASGAS in a full good clinical practice (GCP) compliant study, forty-six (46) healthy, seronegative red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) were allocated to two treatment groups: group 1 (n = 31) received a vaccine bait containing 1.7 ml of the vaccine of minimum potency (106.6 FFU/mL) and group 2 (n = 15) received a placebo-bait. In total, 29 animals of group 1 and 14 animals of group 2 were challenged at 12 months post-vaccination with a fox rabies virus isolate (103.0 MICLD50/mL). While 90% of the anim...
