ABSTRACT:
Ebola viral infections are one of the dangerous reemerging viral infections which are becoming a global threat nowadays. Unfortunately only symptomatic treatment is available for the Ebola viral disease. Currently, there is no specific antiviral treatment exist for Ebola viral disease. Antiviral drugs and vaccines are currently under clinical trials. This short communication throws light into the use of reconvalescent plasma therapy in cases of Ebola viral outbreaks.
