As the world community intensifies effort to produce medication for the treatment of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), the blood sample of a Nigerian doctor, who survived the disease has been taken by researchers.
According to an agency report, Dr. Akiniyi Akindipe, a staff of the First Consultant Medical Centre (FCMC), that survived Ebola, travelled to San Antonio in the United States (U.S) on Tuesday, where researchers took a sample of his blood.
The South Texas Blood and Tissue Centre (STBTC) is behind the research aimed at addressing Ebola, which currently has no known drug for cure nor vaccination to prevent the ailment. Presently, Ebola has ravaged populations in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, Nigeria, among others, killing over 9,000 people.
