3 Little-Known Drugs for Treating Ebola

Are There Other Treatments?

Yes, there are several other potential treatments currently being evaluated. Some aren't really drugs (such as the blood donated from survivors). Researchers are also desperately working on a vaccine to prevent Ebola infections, which would help to protect healthcare workers.
 
In addition to these specific drug treatments for Ebola, standard supportive measures are quite important. Typically, this means giving IV fluids and balancing electrolytes. Various other supportive measures may be taken as well, depending on the particular complications that arise.
