OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 …towards the elimination of rabies in Eurasia! Thanks to the many experts and reference books, we all know now that rabies has been a known disease for more than 40 centuries. Moreover, rabies has been and is still the usual companion of our pets, especially dogs, in many parts of the world Elimination of rabies in pets, primarily dogs, and even in terrestrial wild fauna has proven to be possible, but difficult and costly. But, bats, seem to be currently an inexhaustible reservoir. This is why our primary goal should be the elimination of rabies in humans. And this can only be done globally.
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 21 antennes 66 centres Rabies treatment centers and antennas in France
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 « Bulletin about epidemiology and prophylaxis of rabies in humans » Demand from the Health Authorities Sent to Health Authorities, RTC, Veterinary Authorities, local veterinary laboratories, vet schools… Data from the RTC Collected and analyzed by the NRC for Rabies Direct entry of the data on the Internet Direct access to the data to authorized persons thanks to Voozanoo®

(1) 10 children (<10 years old) 18 males, 2 females
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 A few data from the RTC and the NRC for Rabies… Domestic animals(90%) Dogs: 65%! Sex ratio (M/F): 0.54 Age : 30% 60 Category III exposure : 70% Stability of the caracteristics of the population who receives PET along the years
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 Data about PET Vaccine : –1982 -1989 : mostly HDCV + FBKV –1990-2003 : PVRV –2004 : mostly PVRV+ PCECV Regimens –Essen (5 doses) –Mostly Zagreb (2-1-1, 4 doses) RIG : HRIG
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 Rabies in France 1982-2004 Cases in animals and PET Bats Imported pets Last autochtonous terrestrial cases
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 PET after rabies cases in humans France 1991-2003 Mexico-Nice, 1991 : 44 Mali, 1994 :36 Madagascar-La Réunion, 1996 : 290 Algeria-Nice, 1996 : 45 Algeria-Marseille, 1996 : 35 India-Bretagne, 1997 : 50 Gabon-Lyon, 2003 : 142 Mean PET: 92 Without the 2 rabies cases in children (Lyon and La Réunion): 42
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 PET after exposures to bats or monkeys
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 Number of PET according to the status of the animal towards rabies
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 Percentage of PET after exposure during travel France Pasteur Institute : 40% in 2006
OIE/OMS, Paris, 2007 Conclusions No autochtonous case in humans Education of the public –Risk from imported animals –Rabies exposure while traveling –Diversity of animal species : bats! Training –RTC –Travel clinics –Occupational medicine
