Ebola: Study announces a durable vaccine

25 marzo 2015

The durability of a novel ‘disseminating’ cytomegalovirus-based Ebola virus vaccine strategy may eventually have the potential to reduce ebolavirus infection in wild African ape species, scientists report. African apes serve as a main source of ebolavirus transmission into the human population. As a consequence, the prevention of ebolavirus infection in African apes could reduce the incidence of future human ebolavirus outbreaks.
