No canine rabies, no canine babies: Smaller exposure risks to both children and adults
Date:11/20/2013

(Philadelphia) Thomas Jefferson University announced today that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations winner, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Milosz Faber, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the department of Microbiology and Immunology will pursue an innovative global health and development research project, titled "Development of a single dose contraceptive rabies vaccine."

Rabies has become a seriously neglected disease in the developing world. It causes globally an estimated 70,000 human deaths and 15 million people, of which 40 percent are children, undergo rabies post-exposure prophylaxis each year. Domestic dogs, which are found in high densities in several continents and often associated with rabies, are responsible for more than 95percent of the human rabies cases world-wide. Therefore, the most effective way to control of human rabies would be the eradication of dog rabies. However, since most of the dogs in developing countries are free-ranging, elimination of dog rabies can only be achieved through a combination of vaccination and population control programs. The aim of this project is to develop a cost-effective and safe contraceptive rabies vaccine formulation that would accomplish both objectives with a single dose.

The vaccine will be based on recently developed non-pathogenic rabies variant TriGAS which targets dendritic cells and thereby strongly induces a strong and sustained immune response not only to rabies virus but also to foreign antigen such as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). The novel vaccine formulation resulting from the studies on this project will induce, after a single inoculation, both long-term protective immunity against rabies and infertility w
