First Ebola treatment trials to start in west Africa

Medical aid group Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said Thursday it would soon launch clinical trials of three possible treatments for Ebola in west Africa.

The trials to be run in Liberia and Guinea give "hope for patients to finally get a real treatment against a disease that today kills between 50 percent and 80 percent of those infected," said Annick Antierens, who coordinates the investigational partnerships for MSF.
