The Titer Testing in Post-Vaccination Rabies Immunoglobulin G (IgG) with the Administration of Wild Horse Milk
TITER TESTING IN POST-VACCINATION RABIES
Keywords:Antibody, Immunostimulator, Rabies, Wild Horse Milk, Vaccine
The occurrence of human rabies in Indonesia approximately amounted to 168 cases. The countermeasures taken were vaccination, quick treatment for individuals, KIE (Komunikasi, Informasi, dan Edukasi; Communication, Information, and Education), surveillance, selective dog elimination and post-exposure management. Vaccination was one of the effective countermeasures against the distribution of rabies. It might be conducted either before or after the virus exposure. Despite its effectiveness, it could end in failure due to several factors, one of which was the nutritional status of patient. However, the failure could be overcome by enhancing the immune system (immunostimulator) with the administration of wild horse milk. The milk contained lactoferrin known as protein inducing antibody. Sample consisted of 15 rabbits. They were divided into three groups. Each group consisted of five rabbits. Group t1 for titer testing in immunoglobulin after anti-rabies vaccination; while Group t2 and t0 for titer testing in immunoglobulin after rabies-vaccination and administration of wild horse milk and for the control group without any treatment respectively. The results showed a titer increase in Ig G after vaccination by 40% in Group t2 and t2 (p>0.05). Besides, the administration of wild horse milk could increase titer in IgG after vaccination for two weeks (p<0.05). In Conclusion, Administration of wild horse milk could increase titer in IgG after vaccination.
