Transplant patients die of rabies in China

Animal Health SmartBrief | Jul 19, 2016

Chinese researchers report that two transplant patients died after developing rabies and they believe the patients were infected via donated kidneys, although the donor was never diagnosed with rabies. Both recipients developed symptoms of rabies and died after recovering normally from the transplant surgery, while two other patients who received corneal tissue from the donor were successfully treated with rabies prophylaxis.
