Clinical Epidemiology of Rabies 1 Definition History Etiology 2 Definition

A fatal viral disease (encephalomyelitis) In human and most other mammals One of the most common viral causes of mortality 15 million people annually receiving post-exposure vaccination to prevent the disease . 3 Definition 55000-100000 deaths occur each year because of rabies. Rabies is a neglected disease of

poor and vulnerable populations whose deaths are rarely reported. 4 Etiologic Etiologic agent agent Rabies virus

Genus : Lyssavirus (lyssa: rage in Greek) Family : Rabdoviridae family Enveloped bullet-shaped virus 5 structural proteins SS RNA, non-segmented 5 Rabies Virus Rabies virus particles 6

Rabies Rabies Virus Virus in in the the Environment Environment Normally, rabies virus cannot live long in a warm, putrefied environment, Survives in the body less than 24 hours after death. A few minutes in direct sunlight will inactivate rabies virus.

7 Rabies Rabies Virus Virus in in the the Environment Environment under cool conditions (in refrigerator) it may live for many days If the virus is frozen at -70oC, it can live for years. Rabies virus is no longer active in

dried saliva Is killed by bleach, ethyl alcohol, soap, detergent, and quaternary ammonium compounds. 8 Pathogenesis Pathogenesis of of Rabies Rabies Widespread CNS involvement Spreads to the CNS in the endoneurium of the Schwann cells

Enters the peripheral nerves through the neuromuscular junction Inoculation, the virus 9 replicates in the striated or connective tissue Pathogenesis Pathogenesis of of Rabies Rabies 10 Descriptive

A productive pathogenesis cycle of animal rabies: virus entry into peripheral nerves via a bite, 47 movement to the central nervous system resulting in encephalitis, and transit to the salivary glands, mediating infection of another host.

The Jackal is an important candid reservoir of rabies in the old world Hosts 6/7 lyssavirus genotypes Widespread throughout North America, Latin America Infection rates in bats varies (4% to > 15%) Humans encounter bats that are sick, incapacitated Different bat species vary in their human interaction Primary reservoir for rabies in

All continents. 51 Prevention and Control 52 Prevention and Control Primary Prevention: Prevention of disease in well individuals

Secondary Prevention: Identification and intervention in early stages of disease Tertiary Prevention: Prevention of further deterioration, reduction in complications 53

Primary Primary Prevention: Prevention: Pre-exposure Pre-exposure prophylaxis: prophylaxis: vaccination of people in high risk groups:

Veterinarians Animal handlers Certain lab workers Travel to areas where canine rabies is common 54 Primary Primary Prevention: Prevention: Pre-exposure Pre-exposure prophylaxis prophylaxis::

vaccination: intramuscular, 1ml (3 doses): at 0, 7, 21-28 days Antibodies usually persist for 2 yrs Repeat titers q6-24 months depending on level of exposure Acceptable titer levels are 0.5 IU/ml 55 Rabies

Rabies vaccines vaccines Human Diploid Cell Vaccine (HDCV) Purified vero cell vaccine (PVRV) Purified chicken embryo cell (PCEC) 56 Post-exposure Post-exposure wound wound care care

Prevent virus in wound from reaching neural tissue Prompt and thorough cleaning: flush wound with soap and water Benzalkonium chloride not superior to soap Update tetanus immunization Treat secondary bacterial infection Do not suture wound if possible 57 58

Post-exposure Post-exposure Prophylaxis Prophylaxis Exposure other than bite rarely causes infection Prophylaxis to patients with open wound scratch mucous membrane contaminated by : saliva or potentially infectious material from rabid 59

Check the antibody titer (~ 0.5 IU/mL) Exposures to potentially contaminated secretions or tissues should lead to standard PET 61 Post-exposure Post-exposure immunoprophylaxis immunoprophylaxis

Passive and active Start ASAP (As soon as possible) RIG and rabies vaccine Vaccine : one of the 3 types (5 doses), same dose for all ages 1.0 ml IM at 0, 3, 7, 14, 28 d

Intradermal regimens:used alternatively Avoid gluteal injection: less antibody response than deltoid . Red Book 2003 62 Post-exposure Post-exposure immunoprophylaxis immunoprophylaxis Human RIG is Given at the same time with the vaccine (ASAP) Dose: 20 IU/kg

As much as possible to infiltrate the wound Remainder is given IM (is not the first choice) RIG and vaccine are Give at different sites & in different syringes Purified equine RIG : dose is 40 IU/kg, may need desensitization 63 22 -- Secondary Secondary Prevention: Prevention: Identification Identification And

And intervention intervention in in early early stages stages of of disease disease 64 Rabies/Diagnosis

Rabies/Diagnosis Frequently missed Lab tests are non diagnostic Hyponatremia: inadequate intake, SIADH hypernatremia,: rare CSF analysis normal in 1/3 of patients in the 1 st wk of illness CSF: viral meningoencephalitis

EEG and head CT may be normal early in illness 65 Rabies/Diagnosis Rabies/Diagnosis MRI: abnormal, ill defined, increase signal intensity on T-2 images Areas involved: brainstem, hippocampi, hypothalami, deep & subcortical white and grey matter 66

Rabies/Diagnosis Rabies/Diagnosis Tissue Tissue studies studies Brain tissue: culture, histology for Negri bodies Immunohistochemistry on tissue Brain tissue: Immunostain 67 Rabies/Diagnosis

Rabies specific antibodies in serum or CSF (RFFIT) Serology positive in serum in 7 days of symptoms Serology positive in CSF in 13 days of symptoms Rabies vaccine does not cause positive CSF antibodies Molecular studies, monoclonal antibodies in epidemiologic studies Hammond GW (Principles and Practice of Pediatric Infectious diseases) 68
