  1. Heard about the rabies vaccine Zhen Fu and Biao He came up with. MY QUESTION IS, are the mice that survived, did their antibodies get past the blood brain barrier? I know that sometimes antibodies can sometimes go through the barrier and sometimes it can not get through.

  2. The video: World First:Scientists Open the Blood Brain Barrier Non-Invasively.
    This might help the antivirals like Favipiravir and Ribavarin along with the UGA vaccine to work more successfully.

  3. Somebody probably already thought of this but what if you tried the following combination.
    1) Favipiravir
    2) Ribavarin
    3) The experimental vaccine from the Researchers at UGA (See video: UGA researchers work on Rabies Cure)
    4) Use of the Milwaukee Protocol

    Also, the video World First: Scientists open the blood-brain barrier non-invasively. This might help for the medicines

  5. I was wondering, with the new vaccine that was used on mice with Rabies, can it be seen whether this immunization can produce antibodies in the CSF? If it might show up in the CSF even after a standard immunization and not just for post exposure. This would be an enormous breakthrough. From what I have seen, these two researchers may bring about a whole new generation of vaccination therapies. Great work.

  6. I saw the article that mentioned the late stage rabies treatment that they came up with. They probably already thought of this, but I was wondering if a combination of injection of immunoglobulin in the cerebral spinal fluid, along with their recent treatment on mice they came up with, then combine both of those  with the Milwaukee Protocol would hopefully be successful. Very Interesting.

  7. thanks for all the uploads ! really interesting stuff
