Rabies: Scientific Basis of the Disease and Its Management is an authoritative reference on current rabies virological, clinical, and public health knowledge and recommendations. Rabies remains one of the most important global public health problems worldwide. Although many important developments have been made over the past century to combat this disease, rabies has become a re-emergent infection in the developing world. The Fourth Edition updates this classic reference with comprehensive coverage of the molecular virology, pathogenesis, vaccines, public health, immunology, and epidemiology of rabies. The Fourth Edition will be completely revised, and new chapters will cover historical developments in rabies intervention strategies, the evolution of rabies virus, modelling rabies control, and on the strategy for rabies elimination. Rabies, Fourth Edition provides physicians, public health advisors, epidemiologists, research scientists, and veterinarians with single source for authoritative and up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment, control and prevention of this fatal infectious virus.
- Edited by Anthony Fooks and Alan Jackson who are renown researchers in this subject and has gathered a team of experts to detail the science, treatment, and control of rabies
- Completely revised, the Fourth Edition presents rabies as a re-emergent infection with greater emphasis on a global perspective of the disease
- Includes new chapters the evolution of the rabies virus and on modelling rabies control and includes full-color figures that highlight important information in microscopic studies
Anyone involved in diagnosing, treating, controlling and preventing this disease including: scientists, rabies researchers, academic researchers, public health advisors, animal health professionals, epidemiologists, physicians, veterinarians
