San Diego Lab Runs Out of Experimental Ebola Treatment
The San Diego-based laboratory that is developing an experimental serum to treat Ebola said this week that it has exhausted its entire supply of the treatment, called ZMapp. Mapp Biopharmaceutical said it had only a limited amount of ZMapp because it had not planned to begin human testing until next year. The drug has been used to treat two U.S. residents who contracted Ebola, but the treatment's effectiveness remains unclear.
