Potential Ebola Vaccine Headed to Clinical Trials
Preliminary testing has found a possible Ebola vaccine appears safe and can head to clinical trials involving health care workers in West Africa as planned in late 2014 or early 2015, according to a study published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the finding an "important milestone" in the effort to fight Ebola, adding that the positive finding "lays the groundwork for the critical clinical trials to follow shortly in Ebola-impacted countries."
