Rabies is a worldwide zoonosis caused by a lyssavirus, with many host species acting as reservoirs for infection. The epidemiology of rabies has changed over recent years, as this disease has been brought under control or eliminated in many terrestrial animal species in Europe and North America. A large number of Lyssavirus variants have now been characterised, and their distribution and animal hosts have become known. However, new lyssaviruses have been isolated from bats, prompting scientists… Expand

Rabies is a fatal neurological disease and a persistent global problem. It is spread primarily by domestic dogs but other canid, viverrid (skunks and raccoons) and chiropteran species are consideredExpand
Eradicating rabies at source.
TLDR
Along with zoonotic influenza and antimicrobial resistance, rabies provides an excellent example of a disease that has an impact on public, animal and environmental health, and therefore benefits from a One Health approach to management. Expand
An overview of epidemiology and control of rabies: global and Indian scenario.
TLDR
There is a need of intersectoral collaboration between vetinarian, medicos, forest and wild life authorities and various NGOs to overcome this menace. Expand
Molecular characteristics isolates of rabies virus isolated from humans in Ukraine
TLDR
It is proved that 2 street isolates from people from Ukraine are similar in degree of homology to the isolates isolated in fox populations in South-Eastern Europe. Expand
Epidemiology of bat rabies in Germany
TLDR
Although only 50% of the rabies-positive bats have been identified by species, the Serotine bat is the bat species most frequently infected, and single rabies cases have also been detected in a further five indigenous bat species. Expand
Current and future trends in the prevention, treatment and control of rabies
TLDR
Implementation of oral vaccination in free-ranging carnivore hosts demonstrates the feasibility of disease abatement in particular wildlife populations, such as demonstrated in Europe and North America, with an enhanced need for application to developing countries in the Americas, Africa and Eurasia. Expand
European bat lyssaviruses: Distribution, prevalence and implications for conservation
TLDR
Further research and monitoring regarding prevalence, transmission, pathogenesis and immunity is required to ensure that integrated bat conservation continues throughout Europe, whilst enabling informed policy decision regarding both human and wildlife health issues. Expand
Immunogenicity of replication-deficient vesicular stomatitis virus based rabies vaccine in mice
TLDR
The results confirm that VSV/RABV-GP could be a new potential vaccination platform for RABV. Expand
Overview of Animal Rabies in Kinshasa Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo
TLDR
This study confirms the endemicity of rabies in Kinshasa where occurrence of Rabies cases was related to human population density and lifestyle. Expand

TLDR
Future research is needed to develop cost-effective and efficacious methods to control rabies in species such as striped skunks as well as in nonterrestrial vectors such as bats. Expand

The epidemiology of fox rabies in Europe.
TLDR
Rabies virus strains from such divergent hosts as bats or foxes show very strong cross-reaction in serum neutralization in all parts of the world, which would suggest that rabies virus has not substantially changed in 4000 years of observation. Expand
Epidemiology of fox rabies.
TLDR
There has been a great deal of research during the past 15 years on the epidemiology of fox rabies and the possible measures of prophylaxis against it, and one can now attempt to present a synthesis of the essential ideas. Expand
European bat lyssaviruses: an emerging zoonosis
TLDR
It is clear that EBLV in bats cannot be eliminated using conventional strategies similar to the control programmes based on vaccine baits used for fox rabies in Europe during the 1980s, and should be treated immediately with rabies post-exposure treatment and the bat, where possible, retained for laboratory analysis.

Health and conservation implications of Australian bat Lyssavirus
Australian bat Lyssavirus, first reported in mid-1996 from a Black Flying Fox Pteropus alecto has now been isolated from two other species of flying fox, a microbat and a human, who died of aExpand
Antigenic and molecular characterization of bat rabies virus in Europe
TLDR
It is proposed that EBL1 and EBL2 constitute two distinct genotypes which further serologic characterization will probably classify as new serotypes and a simple method for the rapid characterization of EBL is reported based on the digestion of the polymerase chain reaction product of the N gene by three restriction endonucleases. Expand
Rabies re-examined.
TLDR
Although it is a major zoonosis, canine rabies can be eliminated, and application of new vaccine technologies permits significant disease control among wildlife species, despite much technical progress in the past century, rabies is a disease of neglect and presents a modern public-health conundrum.

BAT RABIES IN URBAN CENTERS IN CHILE
TLDR
The Brazilian free-tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis) was identified as the reservoir for the rabies genetic variant most frequently isolated in the country between 1977 and 1998, and reservoirs for the other three variants remain unknown. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of rabies virus in South Africa.
TLDR
The SA canid isolates were found to be closely related and could clearly be distinguished from all other rabies virus groups for which sequence data is available, and results indicate that spillover between the distinct canid and viverrid host reservoirs may occur. Expand

Abstract Although rabies in Africa is relatively insignificant in terms of human mortality, the disease is still relevant because of the high costs of rabies prevention. Over the past 2 decades,Expand
