Via allAfrica.com, a statement from the government of Liberia: President Obama Approves the Use of Experimental Drug on Two Liberian Doctors undergoing Treatment for Ebola.
The White House and the United States Food and Drug Administration have approved the request for sample doses of experimental Serum to treat Liberian doctors who are currently infected with the deadly Ebola virus disease.
According an Executive Mansion release, the approval was in response to an August 8, 2014 communication sent to President Barrack Obama by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in which she requested the experimental Serum to be used on the affected Liberian doctors.
The experimental drugs are to be brought in the country by a representative of the U.S. Government later this week.
Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, has authorized the dispatch of additional doses of the experimental Serum to Liberia to support the treatment of affected doctors. The experimental Serum from the WHO will be brought in by one of its experts later this week.
