The National Institutes of Health announced Thursday that it is launching the safety trial on a vaccine developed by the agency’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and GlaxoSmithKline. It will test 20 healthy adult volunteers to see if the virus is safe and triggers an adequate response in their immune systems. (AP Photo/NIAID/GSK)

Monkeys infected with Ebola survived after being treated with an experimental drug from Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., in a study that suggests the drug may be effective even after severe symptoms are present.
Monkeys were given three doses of the antibody-based treatment ZMapp starting three to five days after being infected with a lethal dose of Ebola. All 18 monkeys treated with ZMapp survived, while three that weren't given the medicine died, according to the results published today in the journal Nature.
"It is a really, really important study" as it is the longest researchers have waited after infecting monkeys with Ebola to protect all of them with a drug, said Thomas Geisbert, a virologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, who wasn't involved in the research. "This has real-world utility."
Some Ebola patients, including the American health workers Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, have been treated with ZMapp, though the closely held San Diego-based company has said its supply is exhausted. Three health-care workers in Liberia have also been treated with ZMapp. Liberian officials have confirmed that one of them, Abraham Borbor, the deputy chief medical officer of Liberia's John F. Kennedy Medical Center, died.
