provides data that allow researchers to create and test models of rabies transmission and the effects of vaccination. Hampson et al. PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases 9 (16 APRIL 2015) PLOS One In theory nobody should die from rabies It’s one of the few viral diseases where administering a vaccine after exposure can still save your life Developing countries try to provide enough doses to hospitals and clinics Unfortunately supplies often run out People who can’t afford to buy the jabs from private pharmacies or don’t get them in time are doomed Untreated rabies is the deadliest of all diseases fatal almost without exception That’s why the global plan calls for cheaper and faster treatment for people But its long-term bet is on vaccinating domestic dogs which pose the biggest threat to people in the developing world "It’s the only way you’re going to eliminate the problem" says Louise Taylor scientific director of the Global Alliance for Rabies Control an advocacy group based in Manhattan Kansas To rid a canine population of the virus vets aim to immunize at least 70% of dogs for several years After that a lower coverage level suffices to keep outbreaks at bay A campaign pays off Some developing countries have succeeded in eliminating rabies Others have made great progress As Sri Lanka ramped up dog vaccinations for example human deaths declined The country has also spent heavily on postexposure vaccines further cutting deaths J You/Science; (Data) Public Health Veterinary Services Sri Lanka Ministry of Health This strategy has stopped rabies as a killer in developed nations Elsewhere the challenges are enormous and nowhere bigger than in sub-Saharan Africa Poor countries can hardly pay for millions of dogs to be vaccinated and their governments often have trouble organizing vaccination campaigns across vast rural areas—even if they have the political will Big donors for their part prefer to work on diseases with a higher death toll or believe that reaching enough dogs is too complicated In fact dog campaigns are relatively straightforward but they often face obstacles The veterinary teams that typically run them don’t work together with public health authorities and tend to prioritize cattle and other valuable livestock which usually die of other diseases "In Africa what’s a dog It’s worth nothing" says Jens Fissenebert who runs Mbwa Wa Africa an animal welfare charity near Arusha Tanzania "The connection with saving human lives is not there" Now in pilot projects underway in Tanzania Kenya and a few other African countries scientists are testing strategies for reaching and vaccinating dogs more efficiently They are also collecting data to pin down the toll of rabies demonstrate the connection between dog vaccination and human health in poorer countries and quantify the economic benefits of national campaigns Although the 2030 target seems improbable if not impossible proponents point to a few successful efforts—including the brief defeat of dog rabies in N’Djamena the capital of dirt-poor Chad—to show that the disease can be beaten back even in Africa "It’s not going to be fast easy or inexpensive" says Charles Rupprecht a rabies expert and consultant near Atlanta "But it can be done" THE RABIES VIRUS IS A MARVEL of biological ingenuity cruelly manipulating its host’s behavior to further its own reproduction After a dog becomes infected usually through a bite by another dog the virus travels to the brain and renders the animal hyper-aggressive and excitable with a hoarse howl The virus also spreads to the salivary glands which start producing saliva laden with billions of viral copies By interfering with the pharyngeal nerves the virus makes it hard for the dog to swallow leading to more saliva and increased chances of transmission The disease is similarly gruesome in humans In what’s known as paralytic rabies about one in five patients slips into a coma and dies of respiratory and heart failure Furious rabies is even worse with symptoms including fear of water—even to drink—spasms terror and aggression Human-to-human transmission of rabies is believed to be extremely rare and has only been documented from a few organ or cornea transplants Only 15 people are known to have survived rabies and almost all had been at least partially immunized Louis Pasteur developed the first rabies vaccine made from the dried spinal cords of infected rabbits and famously used it to save the life of a 9-year-old Parisian boy in 1885 Today’s versions are produced from virus grown in cultures of human cells then chemically sterilized; they are more effective far less painful and have fewer side effects Three to five jabs over several weeks will prevent the virus from reaching the brain if given quickly enough A dose of rabies antibodies is also recommended for people not previously inoculated Dog vaccines were first developed in the 1920s Still it took decades to eliminate rabid dogs as a public health threat in Europe Japan and elsewhere Now Latin America is on the verge of replicating the success (see timeline below) following a concerted and coordinated campaign that reaches 40 million to 50 million dogs each year On its way out Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have made steady progress toward eliminating canine rabies With help from the Pan American Health Organization they jointly purchase and share vaccines use standardized surveillance and coordinate vaccination along borders (Graphic) V Altounian/Science;
