ZMapp, being developed by Mapp Biopharmaceutical
Inc., is an experimental treatment, for use with
individuals infected with Ebola virus. It has not
yet been tested in humans for safety or
effectiveness. The product is a combination of three
different monoclonal antibodies that bind to the
protein of the Ebola virus.
How effective is the experimental treatment?
It is too early to know whether ZMapp is
effective, since it is still in an experimental
stage and has not yet been tested in humans for
safety or effectiveness. Some patients infected with
Ebola virus do get better spontaneously or with
supportive care. However, the best way to know if
treatment with the product is efficacious is to
conduct a randomized controlled clinical trial in
people to compare outcomes of patients who receive
the treatment to untreated patients. No such studies
have been conducted. It's important to note that the
standard treatment for Ebola remains supportive
This includes the following measures:
balancing the patients' fluids and electrolytes;
maintaining their oxygen status and blood
treating them for any complicating infections.
