:: Oxford University Begins Trial of Possible Ebola Treatment at MSF Treatment Center in Monrovia
January 07, 2015
A clinical trial of a possible treatment for Ebola began on January 1, 2015, at ELWA 3, the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Ebola Management Center in Monrovia, Liberia. Led by Oxford University, the trial aims to determine if the antiviral drug brincidofovir is a safe and effective treatment for Ebola. While MSF hopes that brincidofovir might help patients survive infection, it is still not sure whether this will be the case.
