about

Laboratory Techniques in Rabies Diagnosis, Research and Preventionprovides a basic understanding of the current trends in rabies. It establishes a new facility for rabies surveillance, vaccine and antibody manufacturing. It offers clarity about the choice of laboratory methods for diagnosis and virus typing, of systems for producing monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies and of methods for testing potency of vaccines and antibodies. The book covers advancements in the classical methods described as well as recent methods and approaches pertaining to rabies diagnosis and research.



  • Supplies techniques pertaining to rabies diagnosis and research
  • Provides an update on the conventional and modern vaccines for rabies prevention
  • Offers updates on the full length antibodies and antibody fragments for post exposure prophylaxis of rabies
  • Presents technique descriptions that can be used to be compared to industry protocols to identify and establish potential new techniques
Professor Charles E. Rupprecht is the Director of Research at the Global Alliance for Rabies Control and is the previous Director of WHO Collaborating Center for Rabies Research. He has won numerous federal service awards including the National Center for Infectious Diseases Public Health Protection Research Award in 2005.Professor Nag...
