07:15 EDTNNVC, GSK, BCRX, TKMRWHO says ethical to offer unproven interventions in light of Ebola outbreak
The World Health Organization issued a statement that read in part: "West Africa is experiencing the largest, most severe and most complex outbreak of Ebola virus disease in history. Ebola outbreaks can be contained using available interventions like early detection and isolation, contact tracing and monitoring, and adherence to rigorous procedures of infection control. However, a specific treatment or vaccine would be a potent asset to counter the virus...In the particular circumstances of this outbreak, and provided certain conditions are met, the panel reached consensus that it is ethical to offer unproven interventions with as yet unknown efficacy and adverse effects, as potential treatment or prevention." Publicly traded companies that have confirmed development activities on Ebola treatments include Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), NanoViricides (NNVC) and BioCryst (BCRX).
