Stay Alert for a New, Concentrated Rabies Immune Globulin Option
New rabies immune globulin products will lead to questions about rabies post-exposure prophylaxis.
About 40,000 patients/year in the U.S. will get rabies post-exposure prophylaxis...to prevent central nervous system infection and death.
Be ready to treat patients after a bite from certain wild animals, especially bats, foxes, or raccoons...or a suspected rabid dog or other domestic animal. UNprovoked attacks may be a sign of rabies.
