New live rabies vaccine developed

Over 60,000 people die annually from rabies contracted from wildlife. Researchers at the Thomas Jefferson University have developed a live rabies vaccine which provides a better immune response than current vaccines. The US spends over $1 billion on control, treatment and prevention of rabies. Traditional vaccines are animal specific whereas it is hoped that this new vaccine will protect against the disease in a range of animals such as raccoons, dogs, skunks and mongoose.
