Vaccine developed against Ebola (BBC) {not quite ready}
By Jennifer Carpenter
Science reporter, BBC News

Scientists have developed a vaccine that protects mice against a deadly form of the Ebola virus.

First identified in 1976, Ebola kills more than 90% of the people it infects.

The researchers say that this is the first Ebola vaccine to remain viable long-term and can therefore be successfully stockpiled.

The results are reported in the journal Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences.

Ebola is transmitted via bodily fluids, and can become airborn{e}. Sufferers experience nausea, vomiting, internal bleeding and organ failure before they die.

2. "Sufferers experience nausea, vomiting, internal bleeding and organ failure before they die."
Sounds like the list of possible side-effects at the end of every U.S. drug commercial.

I've got to wonder why nobody in Big Pharma has yet to introduce Ebola as a cure for some inconsequential malady. It's sure to be a hit.
