Tackling the Threat of Rabies Reintroduction in Europe

By Santiago Vega, Laura Lorenzo-Rebenaque, Clara Marin, Rosana Domingo, Fernando Fariñas

Category Journal Articles

Rabies is one of the oldest, most important zoonoses worldwide due to its extreme and
inevitably lethal nature, causing one death every 9min worldwide. Recent reports have
demonstrated that the Lyssavirus continues more alive than ever, despite the control
carried out against the virus throughout Europe. In this context, this work reviews the main
immunological implications, transmission risk factors and current prevention measures
for virus control in Europe, and especially in Spain.
