Effect of Rabies Immunoglobulin on Immunogenicity of Post-exposure Rabies Vaccination in Obese Patients

2017-03-28 23:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A single center, prospective cohort, open-label study of rabies post exposure program with equine rabies immunoglobulin (ERIG) and purified chick-embryo cell (PCEC) rabies vaccine in WHO category III exposed patients at Siriraj Hospital, Thailand aims to compare serum RVNA responses between obese (BMI > 30 kg/m2) and normal weight/underweight (BMI < 25 kg/m2) and to evaluate adverse events occurring after immunization on days 7, 14 and 28.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent and treat RABIES. The inactivated virus vaccine is used for preexposure immunization to persons at high risk of exposure, and in conjunction with rabies immunoglobulin, for postexposure prophylaxis.

A genus of the family RHABDOVIRIDAE that includes RABIES VIRUS and other rabies-like viruses.

The type species of LYSSAVIRUS causing rabies in humans and other animals. Transmission is mostly by animal bites through saliva. The virus is neurotropic multiplying in neurons and myotubes of vertebrates.

The developmental entity of a fertilized egg (ZYGOTE) in animal species other than MAMMALS. For chickens, use CHICK EMBRYO.

The developmental entity of a fertilized chicken egg (ZYGOTE). The developmental process begins about 24 h before the egg is laid at the BLASTODISC, a small whitish spot on the surface of the EGG YOLK. After 21 days of incubation, the embryo is fully developed before hatching.
