In a trail to improve rabies vaccine's immunogenicity, water-soluble acrylic acid (carbopol) was used as an adjuvant in the prepared vaccine. The potency test of the National Institute of Health revealed that the prepared vaccine is potent and efficient. Studying the dynamics of serum antibody in vaccinated dogs using serum neutralizing antibodies test and ELISA showed that antibody titer (0.9 and 1.2352 respectively) reached a level considered protective within two weeks and increased till lasted consist ant (2.4 and 2.694) during the experiment for about twenty-four weeks. In conclusion, the present study results indicated that the vaccine formulated according to this study procedure could provoke long-lasting protective immune response after a single dose administration without any adverse reaction.
