Ebola survivors show severe immune system abnormalities two years after their disease (Nature Communication of 24/07/2020)
VRI (Vaccine Research Institute)/ INSERM/UPEC (U955, IMRB) in collaboration with several Inserm and IRD teams has just published a study in Nature Communications on 24 July showing that Ebola survivors suffer serious immune system sequelae two years after their disease.
Continuing to wreak havoc in the Democratic Republic of Congo four years after the end of the epidemic in West Africa, this study conducted by Prof. Yves Levy and Aurélie Wiedemann was based on data from the follow-up of cohorts representing more than 800 people in Guinea.
This study advances the concept that Ebola infection, after the disappearance of the virus, is similar to a chronic disease.
