Post Exposure Passive Immunization with Purified Equine Rabies Immunoglobilin – Is Skin Sensitivity Test Needed?
      Sunitha , A Madhav, Meera M
Abstract: Background: Passive post exposure prophylaxis for rabies is life saving. Equine rabies immunoglobulins (ERIG) are readily available and much cheaper compared to human rabies immunoglobulins (HRIG). Not only several studies conducted across the globe to assess the impact of Skin sensitivity test (SST) but also WHO recommend that, ERIG needs to be administered mandatorily irrespective of SST result. An effort was made in the present study to have hands on experience regarding the usefulness of SST before administering purified ERIG.
