Researchers have examined the cerebrospinal fluid in a small cohort of Ebola survivors, reporting that no viral RNA was present and suggesting the virus may be cell-associated within the CNS.
A live-attenuated Ebola vaccine has demonstrated promising results in a Phase I randomized controlled trial assessing safety and immunogenicity, according to a Canadian study.
Author, Mark Woolhouse, discusses recent efforts to identify pathogens with pandemic potential and his own work on emerging viruses.
Researchers examining post-Ebola syndrome have discovered ocular consequences, including a disease-associated retinal scar.
John-Arne Røttingen discusses his role as founding CEO of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and his thoughts on the importance of developing new vaccines for emerging threats.
International collaborative research has analyzed Ebola virus genomes from the 2013–2016 outbreak, uncovering the role of factors such as language and distance between cities.
Although understanding of Ebola virus pathogenesis has rapidly increased recently, many questions relating to the role of the vascular system remain unanswered. The authors here discuss how Ebola virus infection can cause endothelial dysfunction and coagulopathy.
