Abstract

Five commercially available rabies vaccines (HDCV, FBKC vaccine, PCEC vaccine, PVRV and PDEV) applied alone or combined with human rabies immunoglobulin (HRIG) were administered, by random allocation, to 161 volunteer vaccinees, using the abbreviated 2-1-1 postexposure immunization schedule. Protective levels of rabies antibody were demonstrated in all vaccinees by day 14, and in all but one vaccinee from day 21 to day 90. Partial inhibition of the antibody response due to HRIG was observed for three vaccines (PCEC vaccine, PVRV and PDEV). In terms of economy, reliability and rapid antibody induction, the 2-1-1 schedule proves superior to the presently recommended regimen for postexposure rabies prophylaxis.
