Search for Ebola Treatments


Despite Ebola’s mortality rate of over 70 percent, Emory University Hospital has successfully treated and discharged three American patients who contracted the virus while in Africa.

The ZMapp serum, one of the experimental treatments that’s proven to be most effective, was developed by a global consortium of health researchers headed up by Dr. Erica Saphire of the Scripps Research Institute.

While that consortium has to date been funded by a $28 million grant from the NIH, Dr. Saphire is hoping an additional $100,000 raised through crowdfunding will help fund the search for more potential Ebola treatments, or possibly even a vaccine.
