Rabies Post-Exposure Prophylaxis: A Patient-Centric Approach to Care



Rabies is untreatable and universally fatal once symptoms appear. Therefore, care, including appropriate post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), must be initiated rapidly after a thorough risk assessment. Appropriate PEP implementation ensures that the bite or wound is effectively disinfected, and first aid protocols along with human rabies immune globulin and vaccinations prevent the virus from infecting the central nervous system. This special report review current protocols for PEP and the development of advanced rabies HRIG for managing exposed patients.
