Human trials of an Ebola vaccine have been conducted in the US and no negative effects have been recorded.

According to The Washington Post, this was disclosed by Anthony Fauci, Director of the Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the US National Institutes of Health.

Fauci reportedly told members of Congress on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 that:

“So far 10 of the 20 volunteers have been vaccinated, and thus far there have been no red flags,” “The proof is in the pudding to show scientifically that it works,”

The vaccine was developed by pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline in conjunction with the NIH and the trials are being conducted at the latter’s facility in Bethesda, Maryland.

Fauci also added that phase one of the clinical trials would be completed by the end of November or early December after which expanded trials would commence.
