Does ZMapp Work as a Treatment for Ebola?

You know what's promising in an animal model? Zmap. It's a combination of mono-clone or any bodies that are artificially produced that in an animal model looked really good, anecdotally some benefit in the humans who got it but we don't know if it works. And again, one of the things we better be sure of, is that we test it to prove in the trials that it does work.

I think one of the worst things you can do is assume something works and widely distribute it when in fact it might not work or it might actually paradoxically do some harm.
