Ebola Virus Vaccine Research ContinuesTeaching hospitals throughout the United States are testing medications, treatments, and prevention steps against the Ebola virus. Airports at which entrants to the U.S. will be required to undergo additional screening include O'Hare International Airport. Prevention steps include a potential vaccine being synthesized at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago. While federal law requires lengthy testing before a health care substance is approved for U.S. clinical use, compassionate-use and contagious-disease guidelines that apply to diseases spreading epidemically outside the U.S. could make it possible for a new vaccine to be rushed into experimental use for patients in West Africa.
