    Based on final Phase 1 data published in JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association, the prime-boost Ebola vaccine regimen induced an antibody response that persisted in 100 percent of healthy volunteers to at least 1 year following vaccination. The results are from the EBOVAC1 study EBL1001 conducted by the Oxford Vaccine Group in the UK.
