Report: Ebola vaccine developed

Published: 12.06.11, 08:24 / Israel News

Scientists have developed a vaccine that protects mice against a deadly form of the Ebola virus, the BBC reported. First identified in 1976, Ebola kills more than 90% of the people it infects.


The researchers said that this is the first Ebola vaccine to remain viable long-term and can therefore be successfully stockpiled. The vaccine protects 80% of the mice injected with the deadly strain, and survives being "dried down and frozen," said biotechnologist Charles Arntzen from Arizona State University who was involved in its development.
