It's too early to say it, but Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. Is testing a potential vaccine for ebola. :0

Name?

ZMapp

They've only manufactured small doses and quantities, but this might be a break for those with the virus. :panic:

They haven't sent it out to pharmacys across the nation yet, but it seems effective for some people with the disease. :prophet:

Until then, supportive therapy is the standard way of treating it. :cry:

About time. They should be making vaccines for major diseases long before any outbreak begins, that way if something DOES happen we'll be long prepared.

I know right but wait.....


How can you treat something that doesn't need to be treated?...

They let a guy with Ebola back in the United States. All the states they left them at are pretty close to where I live .-.
