Who plans tests for two Ebola vaccines


The World Health Organization (WHO) plans to test two Ebola vaccines early next year that are among several potential cures in development, but treating the deadly disease on a large scale will be a huge challenge, according to a Cambridge doctor working on one possible miracle drug. The WHO also expects to give the vaccines to as many as 20,000 health care workers on the front lines of the fight against Ebola in West Africa. “The issue is not so much is there science there, it’s how do we actually scale that up in a way to actually get enough doses out to populations that are at-risk to start controlling this,” said Michael Wong, medical director for Cambridge biotech Sarepta Therapeutics.
