ZAPATA, Sandra  and  MONERIZ, Carlos. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCES IN THERAPEUTIC STRATEGIES AGAINST DISEASE BY EBOLA VIRUS. Biosalud [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp.87-105. ISSN 1657-9550.

Ebola virus disease has been known for thirty years as a lethal, contagious and difficult to diagnose and treat disease. Numerous studies have been conducted to understand the pathogenesis of the virus and thus the possible treatments that may promote disease control. However, to date there is no licensed vaccine or medicine to fight Ebola virus. The treatment is based only on relieving symptoms and preventing contagion through actions that help minimize the risk of infection. This review presents different perspectives of the current state of research on antiviral medicine and vaccines in development stages for Ebola virus infection.

Keywords : Ebola virus; Ebola virus disease; antiviral; vaccines.
