Experimental treatment for Ebola Virus Shows promising results in mice

Scientists at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, have said that an experimental treatment for the deadly Ebola virus has shown promising results in mice.

In the study, researchers led by Dr. Manish Gupta took antibodies from the immune systems of mice that had survived infection with the deadly Ebola virus and injected them into other Ebola-free mice. Later, these mice were then infected with Ebola virus.

Nearly all the mice were protected against infection from the Ebola virus. A copy of the study report is published in the May issue of the Journal of Virology.

The study results demonstrate that mice infected under the skin with live Ebola virus survive infection and generate high levels of protective anti-Ebola virus antibodies.

The dreaded Ebola virus killed thousands in Africa and the symptoms of Ebola infection are high fever, chest pain, vomiting and extensive bleeding. Most victims die after several days.
