Doctors in Sierra Leone to start clinical Ebola trial

  • Doctors in the west African country of Sierra Leone will start a clinical trial that will use the blood of survivors of Ebola in a bid to seek a cure for the disease that has killed more than 5,000 people, media reports say.

    The trial is expected to run parallel to similar trials in Guinea to be conducted by the Médecins Sans Frontières. 

    Around 200 Ebola survivors have registered as potential donors in Sierra Leone and their blood plasma will be banked from next month.
