Melbourne: In a first, scientists have developed an effective, rapid and economical treatment for the deadly Ebola virus using antibodies from horses.
The post-exposure treatment made with antibodies from horses could be used in the next Ebola outbreak, researchers said.

"This is a cost-effective treatment that can be used in low-income countries in Africa where equine production facilities are already in operation for producing snake-bite antivenin," said Alexander Khromykh, Professor at University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. "It's the first time that equine antibodies have been
shown to work effectively against Ebola infection," Khromykh said.
