Rabies immune globulin, human Disease Interactions
There are 2 disease interactions with rabies immune globulin, human:
Rabies (Includes Rabies immune globulin, human) ↔ Antibody Response
Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility
Applies to: Immunodeficiency
Patients with primary or acquired deficient/impaired immune response (immunosuppressive therapy, genetic, splenic dysfunction, immunodeficiency disorders) may have reduced antibody response to immunizations. Deferral of immunosuppressive therapy may be considered pending completion of post-exposure therapy unless essential for treatment of other conditions.

Vaccines (Includes Rabies immune globulin, human) ↔ Im Injection
Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility
Applies to: Thrombocytopenia, Thrombocytopathy, Coagulation Defect
In patients with thrombocytopenia or coagulation disorders, intramuscular injections may produce bleeding and hematomas. Patients with a platelet count less than 50,000/mm3 are at an increased risk. Caution is advised if the vaccine (e.g., plague vaccine, hepatitis A and B vaccines, and aluminum-adsorbed DTaP, DTP, DT, or Td) must be administered intramuscularly. The risk of bleeding may be minimized by vaccination immediately after the administration of replacement factor, use of a 23-gauge (or smaller) needle, and immediate application of direct pressure to the vaccination site for at least 2 minutes.
