Ebola in the News

Image
"Tests in four rhesus monkeys showed that seven daily injections cured 100 percent of them. And Geisbert said the researchers gave the monkeys an extremely high dose of Ebola."

The antivirus injections were given within an hour or so after infection. They are testing to see if they can extend the time before adminstering treatment.

Great news for science AND the regions of the world with Ebola outbreaks. This research should also help the fight against other viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHF) like Marburg, Lassa & Crimean-Congo.
