Canadian and US scientists have developed safe and effective vaccines that completely protect non-human primates against the often lethal Marburg and Ebola haemorrhagic fever viruses. “They have high potential for use in humans,” said Steven Jones of the National Microbiology Laboratory of the Public Health Agency of Canada in Winnipeg. The study was published online in Nature Medicine on 5 June 2005 (www.nature.com/naturemedicine, doi: 10.1038/nm1258).
