Russia to start testing its Ebola virus on people “within the next few months”

22 Apr '15
Russia is starting clinical trials of its new Ebola vaccine within the next few months, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported, citing Nikolai Briko of the federal Ministry of Healthcare.

Earlier this year Minister Veronika Skvortsova said Russia’s four Ebola vaccines were being tested on apes.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, the tests are successful and Russia may expect to get results faster than other countries.

Mr. Briko said that physicians in Guinea, an African country hard hit by the Ebola virus last year, have long been using Russian test systems to identify the virus.
