Ebola Vaccines

Ebola vaccines are administered to protect people from contracting the Ebola virus disease (EVD), a viral hemorrhagic fever caused by ebolaviruses. Ebola vaccines include replication-deficient adenovirus vectors, replication-competent vesicular stomatitis (VSV), human parainfluenza (HPIV-3) vectors, and virus-like nanoparticle preparations.

Ervebo (rVSVΔG-ZEBOV-GP) is a recombinant, replication-competent Ebola vaccine.

Zabdeno and Mvabea Ebola vaccine therapy is a prime-boost vaccination approach.

Ad5-EBOV is an adenovirus type 5 vector-based Ebola virus disease vaccine.
