This is big news, Ebola being one of a strain of viral hemorrhagic fevers that have been with us since the late 70’s. There has been mild success in treatment over the years, but 100% success rate is a milestone. Not just in the treatment of Ebola, but the method of transmitting the drug may lead to future cures for many of the worst strains. Please read the NPR article.

A real potential cure for HIV is now a possibility, as the world has become complacent and the disease is now on the upswing in the Gay community again; mainly due to the new generation and drug use.

While we still have years before a final drug will be available to the public, this new method of transmitting the drug should provide hope for true viral treatments.
