The article focuses on three cases of rabies treated using an experimental protocol called the Milwaukee protocol. One of the cases involved the patient named Jeanna Giese who developed rabies after being bitten by a rabid bat and was started on a ketamine-midazolam induced coma, amantidine and ribavarin. Another case involved 8-year-old Nelsy Gomez in Colombia who was bitten by a rabid cat and recovered on the Milwaukee protocol. The role of tetrahydrobiopterin in the neurological manifestations of rabies is explained.
