First Look at Hospitalized Ebola Survivors' Immune Cells Could Guide Vaccine Design

First Look at Hospitalized Ebola Survivors' Immune Cells Could Guide Vaccine Design

The findings reveal surprisingly high levels of immune activation, and have implications for the current effort to develop vaccines against Ebola.
