Experimental Serum from Big Pharma/Gov't saved infected doctors

Experimental drug likely saved Ebola patients
updated 2:22 PM EDT, Mon August 4, 2014

Three vials containing an experimental drug stored at subzero temperatures were flown into Liberia last week in a last-ditch effort to save two American missionary workers who had contracted Ebola, according to a source familiar with details of the treatment.

The drug appears to have worked, sources say.
-------------------
The drug was developed by the biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., which is based in San Diego.
-------------
The medicine is a three-mouse monoclonal antibody, meaning that mice were exposed to fragments of the Ebola virus and then the antibodies generated within the mice's blood were harvested to create the medicine. It works by preventing the virus from entering and infecting new cells.
