Diagnosis of Rabies Infection

Abstract

In recent years there have been advances in cell culture technology, immunochemical procedures, and the use of peripheral nervous and non-nervous tissues for rabies diagnosis. Since the advent of monoclonal antibodies directed against various components of the rabies virion and their use to distinguish different rabies and/or rabies-like strains, it has become increasingly apparent that many of the biological curios noted in the past are probably valid expressions of different strains of rabies. It is no longer correct to say that all rabies virus isolates behave in a similar manner or that the characteristics of street strains can be inferred from the study of fixed strains. This is becoming evident in diagnostic situations. The laboratory worker must always be on guard for the unusual or altered reaction. We hope to address some of these aberrations in this review.
