On Tuesday, the Democratic Republic of the Congo moved one step closer to using an unlicensed vaccine to battle an Ebola outbreak that emerged last month in the remote northeast of the country. The country’s government has submitted a formal vaccine trial protocol, developed with the Paris-based research branch of Doctors Without Borders, to an ethical review board. According to an official at the World Health Organization, if the plan is approved, the vaccine could go into use within the next two weeks. So far, it remains unclear whether the shots will actually be needed, as only two cases of Ebola have been confirmed and 41 suspected or probable cases reported. With samples from several dozen suspected cases testing negative, hopes remain high that the outbreak may be quite small, and perhaps already nearing the end.
