Just thought people might be interested to know that USAMRIID have done
tests and appear to have a vaccine for a strain of the Marburg virus that
kills monkeys. In tests they found that 6 monkeys vaccinated survived a
lethal dose of the virus, compared with 3 other monkeys that weren't
vaccinated and died.
They are hoping that it will be possible to manipulate the vaccine to make
it work for humans.
