Experimental drug cures monkeys

29 Aug, 2014

ZMapp is shown to cure 100% of monkeys in a Canadian study. Severe symptoms, rashes, bleeding, excessive liver enzymes and signs of liver failure had a reversal due to ZMapp injections and the monkeys continue to recover from a lethal dose of the virus, even five days after the infection. The anti-Ebola drug has yet to go through the official human testing phase. ZMapp takes several months to manufacture, which is why the dosages are currently not available.
