Efficacy and Safety Evidences of Ethiopian Medicinal Plants Traditionally Used For the Treatment of Rabies

Alan H Rosenstein

Rabies vaccines are physically inaccessible and economically unaffordable, and traditional medicinal plants are options for rabies management in different parts of Ethiopia. However, most of these plants have not been scientifically investigated. The main aim is to provide an up-to-date overview of the safety and efficacy data of medicinal plants used traditionally for the management of rabies in Ethiopia. A website-based search strategy was employed. Accordingly, various medicinal plants have been used in treatment of rabies in Ethiopia on basis of traditional uses. However, there is limited scientific evidence to establish the safety and efficacy of these medicinal plants. More studies with adequate methodological quality in order to investigate the efficacy and safety of those traditional medicinal plants are needed.
