Therapy

· No specific treatment or vaccine exists for Ebola haemorrhagic fever.

· Severe cases require intensive supportive care, as patients are frequently dehydrated and in need of intravenous fluids.

· Experimental studies involving the use of hyper-immune sera on animals demonstrated no long-term protection against the disease after interruption of therapy.
