Nlio Batista-Morais; Benedito Neilson-Rolim; Humberto Hugo Matos-Chaves; Joo de Brito-Neto & Lcia Maria-da-Silva


Presently, the State of Cear reports the largest percentage of human rabies cases originated from wild animals in Brazil, transmitted by the principal simian species, the tamarin (Callithrix jacchus), found in various locations throughout the State, but concentrated along the coast. Epidemiological studies indicated that possibly the same virus caused the deaths in humans and non-human primates. This rabies virus seem to be different from all other identified so far.
