Several institutions are looking for a vaccine against Ebola, like this one at Vanderbilt University, USA.

Scientists in Oxford, England, are beginning the first human trials of an experimental Ebola virus vaccine.

The vaccine will be administered to 60 healthy volunteers, after favorable results are obtained in laboratory animals.

It contains only a small portion of the virus’s genetic material, so it cannot cause disease.

The combination is expected to stimulate the production of experiments against Ebola in humans.
