Rabies, Scientific Basis of the Disease and Its Management, 4th Edition

By Anthony Fooks and Alan Jackson

Rabies, Scientific Basis of the Disease and Its Management, 4th Edition PDF is an authoritative reference on the current status of rabies, including the virological, clinical, and public health aspects and management 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 resource-constrained countries. The Fourth Edition updates this classic reference with comprehensive coverage of the molecular virology, pathogenesis, immunology, vaccines, public health aspects, and epidemiology of rabies and is completely revised, with new chapters that will cover historical developments in rabies intervention strategies, the evolution of rabies virus, modeling rabies control, and on the strategy for rabies elimination. Rabies, Fourth Edition, provides physicians, veterinarians, public health advisors, epidemiologists, and research scientists with a single source for authoritative and up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment, control, and prevention of this fatal infectious virus.

  • Edited by renowned 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 emphasis on a global perspective of the disease
  • Includes new chapters the evolution of the rabies virus and on modeling rabies control and includes many full-color figures that highlight important information
