Rabies has terrorized humanity since the dawn of civilization, and the menace continues. In industrialized nations where human rabies is rare, animal rabies abounds and humans are protected from infection only by vigorous animal vaccination programs and post exposure immunization. In developing countries, tens of thousands of humans die each year, and over 10 million endure agonizing anxiety after exposure to a possibly rabid animal. In the United States, 15,000 to 40,000 people receive post exposure prophylaxis each year. An encounter with this uniformly fatal infection, globally the most common form of viral encephalitis, leaves “a more indelible stamp of horror” than does any other disease.
