Ex­per­i­men­tal Ebola treat­ment works on two

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Congo’s health min­istry says two of the first 10 peo­ple to get an ex­per­i­men­tal treat­ment for the Ebola virus in the lat­est out­break have re­cov­ered.

The head of the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion on Satur­day con­grat­u­lated Congo’s govern­ment for mak­ing sev­eral ex­per­i­men­tal treat­ments avail­able in this Ebola out­break, call­ing it “a global first, and a ray of hope for peo­ple with the disease.”

The two peo­ple re­ceived the mAb114 treat­ment iso­lated from a sur­vivor of an Ebola out­break in 1995. Congo says 77 Ebola cases have been con­firmed, in­clud­ing 39 deaths and 11 re­cov­er­ies.
