Scientists Report Progress in Ebola Treatment Research

Scientists are reporting progress in the search for effective treatment and cure for the Ebola virus with the discovery that antibodies from the eight Nigerians and two United States survivors could be used to provide immunity against the infection in general population. Researchers reported in a new study published in the journal ACS Chemical Biology that a possible therapy could someday help treat patients infected with one of the most lethal strains of the Sudan Ebola Virus.
