    PARIS: German doctors on Friday gave details of how an experimental drug together with advanced intensive care helped save a Ugandan physician who had been airlifted from Sierra Leone with Ebola. A prototype drug called FX06, designed to stop hemorrhage, was given to the patient after the doctors got special authorization from their hospital’s ethics committee, they reported in The Lancet. “Even though the patient was critically ill, we were able to support him long enough for his body to start antibody production and for the virus to be cleared by his body’s defenses,” said Timo Wolf of University Hospital Frankfurt.
