Most Ebola Survivors Examined in Study Experienced Brain Symptoms Six Months After Infection
For this study, a team of neurologists from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in Bethesda, Md., examined 82 Ebola survivors from Liberia. Most of those in the study had brain symptoms more than six months after their initial infection of the virus. This study is part of the larger PREVAIL III study. “While an end to the outbreak has been declared, these survivors are still struggling with long-term problems,” said study author Lauren Bowen, MD, a member of the American Academy of Neurology. “More than 28,600 people were infected with Ebola in West Africa during the outbreak. Of that number, 11,300 died. In collaboration with the ongoing PREVAIL III natural history study of Ebola survivors, we wanted to find out more about possible continued long-term brain health problems for more than 17,000 survivors of the infection.” Click here to read more.
