Instant Rabies Test — Too Good to be True?
A mea culpa:
Last week I posted about Dyne Immune’s new saliva test for rabies. I checked out what folks in the veterinary community were saying about it. Based on the information I found (and on previous field experience where I used immunoassay tests to screen for contaminants), I wrote a story about how the new test combined with recent advances in treatment might make a difference for people in less developed countries where rabies is still a significant threat.
According to my friend Terrierman, there is more to this than the sunshine and bunnies in the press release. And — sadly — I suspect he’s right.
