Medicinski tretmani za bolest virusa ebole

There is no effective treatment that can cure Ebola fever. The care that can be given therefore consists in relieving the symptoms and increasing the chances of a person with the disease surviving the disease. We speak in this case of symptomatic care : maintain a suitable blood pressure, fight against blood loss, provide oxygen if necessary, rehydrate … Often dehydrated, patients indeed need rehydration.

Some rare cases of isceljenje following the administration of an experimental treatment have been reported. Thus, a British contaminated in Sierra Leone was treated in London with the ZMapp, treatment in development, and would be cured after 10 days of treatment. Two Americans have also benefited from this still experimental treatment which is not available for the populations affected by this epidemic.

In early September 2014, the WHO submitted to experts a list of 8 treatments and 2 vaccines to be developed (the first trials on men have also been put forward for one of the two vaccines). A study2 recently published in Nature Medicine, suggested the efficacy of an experimental vaccine in monkeys.
