PARIS: A novel vaccine temporarily shielded lab monkeys from Ebola, and a booster jab provided lasting protection, according to a study pm Sunday that endorsed approval for tests on humans. A single shot of the vaccine, based on a cold virus that affects chimps, gave macaques “complete short-term and partial long-term protection” from the deadly virus, researchers reported in the journal Nature Medicine. Animals that received a booster shot developed “durable” immunity.
