Researchers at Auburn University are working on a possible Ebola treatment.
The virus has killed more than 900 people in Africa. Two American aid workers infected on the continent are receiving treatment in Atlanta.
Auburn researcher Stewart Schneller says, the goal is to develop a drug that blocks the process through which Ebola hampers the response of the immune system. There are no approved treatments for Ebola. Schneller said drug treatments have advantages over vaccines.
Infants, the elderly and pregnant women can't get vaccines and administering vaccines can be difficult in remote places.
