Rabies Vaccine - PM Seed Stock
The PM 1503 strain of rabies virus, developed at The Wistar Institute, has been successfully used worldwide to develop rabies vaccine for post-exposure treatment to prevent rabies infection of humans.
The Wistar Institute has seed stock of the PM 1503 strain of rabies for use in production of vaccines. The Wistar seed stocks were grown on Vero cells, however, they can be adapted to grow on human diploid cells. This rabies vaccine seed stock has been licensed to select regional public health agencies and to for-profit companies who are developing vaccines for local distribution in selected countries, particularly China and India.
