Inactivated rabies vaccines: Standardization of an in vitro assay for residual viable virus detection

Beatriz Lourenço Correia Moreira and colleagues show that combining two simple and effective techniques may be a safer and more accurate method for the detection of residual rabies virus than in vivo assays to evaluate inactivated vaccines and can be used as an intermediate quality control assay of vaccine production. Read the Author Summary.
