Ebola Epidemic

Experimental Vaccines - 05 Nov 2014
Canada announced new funding on Monday for clinical trials into an Ebola vaccine, and to create a stockpile of the vaccine and experimental treatments for use in the event the deadly disease reaches the country.

Speaking at the laboratory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where scientists developed an experimental Ebola treatment, ZMAb, Health Minister Rona Ambrose said Ottawa was committing C$23.5 million ($20.7 million) for research and development of Ebola vaccines and treatments.

"These funds announced today will help support Ebola vaccine clinical trials and to create a stockpile of the vaccine and monochlonal antibody treatments of Ebola for use in Canada in the event of a case of Ebola, and to assist in the outbreak response in West Africa," Ambrose said.

No cases of Ebola have been reported in Canada, but Ottawa announced on Friday it will stop issuing visas to people from the three West African nations where Ebola is widespread.

A trial is being conducted with a vaccine from GlaxoSmithKline among 120 healthy volunteers with support from the World Health Organization (WHO). The participants will be monitored for six months to determine both the safety and efficiency of the vaccine in the fight against the worst outbreak of Ebola on record which has killed nearly 5,000 people.
