Sep 2, 2020

Rabies post exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, consists of a rabies vaccine series and human rabies immune globulin (HRIG).

Kedrion Biopharma’s human rabies immune globulin, Kedrab, was FDA approved in 2017. And now for the first time, the safety of HRIG (Kedrab) was studied in children.

Joining me today to discuss rabies, PEP and the pediatric trial is James Linakis, MD, PhD. Dr. Linakis is Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics at Brown Medical School and Associate Director of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Rhode Island Hospital's Hasbro Children's Hospital.
