  44. 44. Lessons Learned<br />Rabies diagnosis is extremely difficult to obtain<br />Rabies is not high on the list of differential diagnoses for encephalitis<br />Human encephalitides often go undiagnosed<br />Many pathologists are reluctant to perform autopsies on possible rabies cases<br />Rabies is interpreted as an “animal disease” in a primary care setting<br />Joint federal, state and local health department collaboration is critical for successful diagnosis and disease mitigation<br />

  48. 48. Rabies virus clearance from the CNS requires antibody production in CNS tissues<br />D. Craig Hooper<br />Thomas Jefferson University<br />
  49. 49. Attenuated RV that spread to the CNS induce limited, therapeutic BBB permeability changes<br />BBB fails to “open” during lethal RV infections – few immune effectors reach the CNS and the virus is not cleared <br />Antibodies are the major effector in rabies immunity; how important is the BBB?<br />
  50. 50. Peak circulating rabies-specific antibody levels occur after the restoration of BBB integrity<br />
  51. 51. BBB permeability detected during rabies virus clearance is limited to fluid phase markers<br />
  52. 52. CVS-F3 clearance correlates with antibody synthesis in the CNS<br />
  53. 53. B cells in the CNS during CVS-F3 clearance <br />
  54. 54. B cells infiltrate the CNS tissues and produce antiviral antibodies in situ<br />B cells<br />(CD19)<br />Immunoglobulin<br />(anti-Ig)<br />T helper cells<br />(CD4)<br />
  55. 55. Rabies virus-specific antibodies produced by B cells infiltrating the CNS differ from those produced in the periphery<br />
  56. 56. B cell growth/differentiation/maturation factors in the RV infected CNS<br />
  57. 57. Germinal centers and Ig affinity maturation in the CNS?<br />Peanut agglutinin<br />Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) <br />control<br />d10<br />d18<br />d24<br />
  58. 58. Conclusions<br />The clearance of attenuated rabies viruses from CNS tissues is associated with limited fluid phase BBB permeability <br />Serum rabies virus-specific antibody titers peak after BBB integrity has largely been restored<br />B cells enter the CNS during the response to attenuated rabies viruses<br />B cell growth/differentiation/maturation factors are produced in the CNS and B cells transiently display germinal center markers<br />Rabies virus-specific antibodies produced in the CNS may differ from those produced in periphery (isotype, specificity?)<br />Are antibodies capable of clearing rabies virus from infected CNS tissues more commonly produced in CNS tissues?<br />
