Although rabies virus is widely distributed in the world, and has been the subject of extensive investigations with the objective of its ultimate prevention, control, and management, there is much less knowledge of the characteristics, distribution, and infectivity of other lyssaviruses. Since bats are known animal vectors for all but one of the known(More)
Haemophilus parasuis serotype 4 is a Gram-negative pathogen that is the most prevalent H. parasuis serovar in the world, but its genome sequence information has not yet been reported. Thus, we determined the genome of H. parasuis strain gx033, a serovar 4 strain isolated from a lung specimen of a diseased piglet in southwestern China. Here, we present the(More)
BACKGROUND Human rabies cases in the Guangxi province of China decreased from 839 in 1982 to 24 in 1995, but subsequently underwent a sharp increase, and has since maintained a high level. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS 3,040 brain samples from normal dogs and cats were collected from 14 districts of Guangxi and assessed by RT-PCR. The brain samples(More)
Human beings do not passively perceive the facial expressions of other people, but predict observed facial expressions by employing past experiences. The aim of the current study was to investigate whether and how anticipation affected the perception of facial expressions. A 3-way repeated-measures ANOVA on anticipation, orientation, and facial expression(More)
In this study, a street rabies virus isolate, GXHXN, was obtained from the brain of one rabid cattle in Guangxi province of southern China. To characterize the biological properties of GXHXN, we first evaluated its pathogenicity using 4-week-old adult mice. GXHXN was highly pathogenic with a short incubation period and course of disease. Its LD50 of(More)
R abies is a cosmopolitan zoonotic disease, which causes a fatal infection of the central nervous system. It results in acute, progressive, irreversible lethal encephalomyelitis and extremely serious psychosocial panic; globally it is responsible for more than 55,000 human deaths annually (1). In recent years, the reported human rabies cases reached a peak(More)
