An Ebola vaccine provided 100-percent protection in a field trial in hard-hit Guinea, researchers and officials said Friday, mooting "the beginning of the end" of the killer West African outbreak.

The world is "on the verge of an effective Ebola vaccine," the World Health Organization (WHO) said, hailing the results from the first efficacy test of the VSV-ZEBOV vaccine among people living in a high-danger zone.

"This is an extremely promising development," added WHO chief Margaret Chan.

Not really or there would be a cure for HIV.

The trial took place in Guinea.

Unintentional pun aside, this is wonderful news.

That is great. But really, sanitation and proper corpse handling seems to do a great job of preventing this virus in the United States.

As I said before: German TV (ARD) just reports that the vaccine was known to be effective in monkeys 10 years ago...

It took some Ebola to get to the "civilization" before they got it off the shelf again...
