List of Current Possible Ebola Vaccines In Research, Development, or Trial Stages

US Ebola Vaccines Cropped

Note: I will update this list from time to time, as I get more information on current vaccines in the works.

Current countries with possible Ebola Vaccines in the works:

  1. Canada, 1st human trials have begun there.
  2. Russia, announced that they are about finish development on a vaccine.
  3. U.S., currently in Maryland.

Ebola Therapeutics in Development

  1. ZMapp (Mapp Biopharmaceutical) – Combination of 3 artificially produced antibodies directed against the Ebola virus.
  2. BCXX430 (BioCryst) – A novel drug (nucleoside analogue) that interferes with the reproductive process of the virus.
  3. TKM-Ebola (Tekmira Pharmaceuticals) – Small inhibitory RNA molecule that interferes with the replication of the virus (supported by DOD)
  4. Brincindofovir (Chimerix) – DNA polymerase inhibitor; in vitro activity against Ebola. – Good safety record in phase 3 trial for CMV and adenovirus.
  5. Favipiravir (MediVector/toyama/Fuji) – Polymerase inhibitor; modest activity against Ebola. – Currently in phase 3 trials for influenza.

  1. NIAID/GSK (chimp adenovirus vector) – Phase 1 trials initiated September 20014 at the NIH.
  2. NewLink (VSC vector) – Phase 1 trials initiated October 2014 at the NIH and WRAIR.
  3. Crucell (adenovirus vector) – Phase 1 trials expected fall 2015.

Other vaccines in development: Profectus (VSV vector); Bavarian Nordic (MVA vector); NIAID Intramural, Thomas Jefferson University (rabies vector)
