Wow: Ebola Virus Cured (With Caveats)

I saw this yesterday on my daily StrategyPage mail:

U.S. Army Cures Ebola Killer Virus
June 7, 2010: A U.S. Army research lab has developed a cure for the Ebola virus. This disease, endemic to parts of Central Africa, kills up to 90 percent of those who catch it (because of internal bleeding from infected organs). The new vaccine has one catch, however, the victim must get the injection within 30 minutes of being infected. Despite that limitation, the cure will be produced and stocked to protect people working in labs that contain Ebola virus samples. Research on an Ebola cure is also underway in other nations, and occasionally a lab worker catches Ebola.

Neat.
