    I watched this the other day - about a young girl who received a radical and new treatment for rabies and survived:

    The technique was tried a second time but failed.

    I was wondering what you all think of this? I think that it's a bit early to give up on trying the treatment - correct me if I am wrong but rabies always kills, does it not? So any chance of life is better than none - and here such a chance seems to be available. Why wouldn't this be pursued more vigorously? Shouldn't much more research be done? Has it been tried again, does anyone know?


    Scientists and religionists can be easily differentiated: one lot is arrogant, irascible and disdainful, the other believes in God.

    Here's another article that cast doubt that rabies is 100% fatal anyhow given evidence of non-vaccinated survivors with rabies antibodies still in their systems.

    Thanks - I will have a read in a minute. I meant to say is rabies always fatal if not treated in time, but I'll read the article for more info.

    Yeah - seems like you could survive rabies without a shot - but I find it pertinent that the author said they'd rather try the Milwaukee Protocol than chance it. Avoidance of death by rabies sometimes does follow this treatment, sometimes not. And does also, it seems, sometimes follow non-treatment, if I read it right - the study showed rabies antibodies in the system - so I guess they had rabies?
