Volume 79 of Advances in Virus Research focuses on developments surrounding rabies, an ancient disease that remains a prominent public health problem for humans. This volume highlights important research advances extending from our understanding of how the rabies virus replicates and assembles to how the disease can be prevented and treated in humans and how rabies can be controlled in wildlife hosts. Experts in the field provide insightful and up-to-date chapters that summarize our current state of knowledge in diverse aspects of this very interesting and important viral disease.

  • Contributions from leading authorities and industry experts
  • Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field
