A doctor holds a seringe containing the Ebola vaccine called ChAd3, developed by GlaxoSmithKine, on November 4, 2014 at the CHUV hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland, where trials are also being heldResearchers say they're a step closer to developing an Ebola vaccine, with a Phase 1 trial showing promising results, but it will be months at the earliest before it can be used in the field. The news comes amid the worst ever outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever, which has killed nearly 5,700 people, mostly in West Africa. In the first phase of testing, all 20 healthy adults injected with a higher or lower dose of the vaccine developed antibodies needed to fight Ebola, said the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which conducted the study.
