Possible Cure for Ebola

This video shows how an experimental treatment for the deadly Marburg virus could also be used against another close disease, Ebola. This vaccine has been used in monkeys to protect them from the disease after exposure. The monkeys did not develop any symptoms of the disease after direct exposure to a fatal dose of the disease. They made this vaccine with reverse genetics. The video states that several years of testing must be done before the vaccine could be approved for people. Watch this video to learn more!!
