Descriptions of Articles
  • Rabies Symptoms
    For people with rabies, symptoms may begin with fever, headache, and general tiredness. As this eMedTV article explains, however, symptoms of rabies that may occur as the disease progresses can include anxiety, partial paralysis, and confusion.
  • Rabies Testing
    This eMedTV selection looks at how testing is conducted in humans and animals suspected of having rabies. As this article points out, human testing often involves taking saliva, blood, and other types of tests.
  • Rabies Transmission
    A bite from an infected animal is the most common way to transmit rabies. This eMedTV Web page describes how the disease may also be transmitted through non-bite exposure or human-to-human exposure (which has only been documented in transplant cases).
  • Rabies Treatment
    As this eMedTV article explains, post-exposure rabies treatment involves a series of injections with rabies immune globulin and rabies vaccine. While this treatment is extremely effective, it must be started before the onset of symptoms.
  • Rabies Vaccine
    In most cases, the rabies vaccine is given after a person has been exposed to rabies. As discussed in this eMedTV article, when the vaccine is administered before the onset of symptoms, it is extremely effective.
