In March 2014, the World Health Organization was notified of an outbreak of a communicable disease characterized by fever, severe diarrhea, vomiting, and a high fatality rate in Guinea. [...] Key Result Full-length genome sequencing and phylogenetic analysis showed that EBOV from Guinea forms a separate clade in relationship to the known EBOV strains from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon.Expand
Phylogenetic Analysis of Guinea 2014 EBOV Ebolavirus Outbreak
TLDR
Evidence is reported that points to the same Zaire ebolavirus lineage that has previously caused outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of Congo, theRepublic of Congo and Gabon as the culprit behind the outbreak in Guinea.
Overview of Ebola virus disease in 2014
TLDR
To promptly identify patients and prevent further spreading, physicians should be aware of travel or contact history for patients with constitutional symptoms and there is no standard treatment for EVD.
Ebola virus disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
TLDR
The current EVD outbreak in the DRC has clinical and epidemiologic characteristics that are similar to those of previous EVD outbreaks in equatorial Africa, and the causal agent is a local EBOV variant different from that in the 2014 epidemic in West Africa.
Ebola--an ongoing crisis.
TLDR
The initial sequence data showed that the outbreak strain was Zaire ebolavirus, but a strain distinct from those identified in prior outbreaks, such as those in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Gabon.
Ebola Virus Epidemiology and Evolution in Nigeria
TLDR
Clinical data and contact information and genome sequences for the 2014 Nigerian Ebola virus outbreak confirm that there was a single source for the Nigerian infections, shows that the Nigerian EBOV lineage nests within a lineage previously seen in Liberia but is genetically distinct from it, and supports the conclusion that transmission from Nigeria to elsewhere did not occur.
Serological Evidence of Ebola Virus Infection in Rural Guinea before the 2014 West African Epidemic Outbreak.
TLDR
A highly sensitive and specific Luminex-based assay for Ebola virus (EBOV) antibody detection was used to screen blood samples collected in the framework of the Demographic Health Survey performed in 2012 in Guinea, indicating that Zaire EBOV was circulating in rural areas of this country before the 2014 EVD outbreak.
Ebola virus disease: a review on epidemiology, symptoms, treatment and pathogenesis.
TLDR
This review aims to provide an overview of EVD for clinicians, with the emphasis on pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, and treatment options.
Ebola Virus Disease: History, Epidemiology and Outbreaks
TLDR
It is believed that contact with infected bushmeat is an important risk factor for initial spill over of the virus into the human population, and at present, there is still no registered prophylaxis or curative biologicals against EVD.
Ebola virus disease in West Africa - an unprecedented outbreak.
TLDR
This editorial comments on the current outbreak of EVD in West Africa, reasons why it has proved challenging to contain, signs, symptoms and transmission, and implications for South Africa.
Ebola outbreak 2014 in West Africa and the risk for Mexico
The hemorrhagic fever caused by Ebola virus is a disease with high mortality, mainly reported in Africa, with 24 outbreaks until now. Currently, the biggest and geographically extended outbreak is

Ebola and marburg hemorrhagic fever.
TLDR
Clinicians in the United States should be aware of the symptoms of these viral infections in humans and know the appropriate procedures for contacting local, state, and national reference laboratories in the event of a suspected case of filoviral hemorrhagic fever.
Ebola haemorrhagic fever
TLDR
Ebola virus infections are characterised by immune suppression and a systemic inflammatory response that causes impairment of the vascular, coagulation, and immune systems, leading to multiorgan failure and shock, and thus, in some ways, resembling septic shock.
Basic clinical and laboratory features of filoviral hemorrhagic fever.
TLDR
This compilation will be of value to medical workers responding to epidemics and to investigators attempting to develop animal models of filoviral HF by identifying key unanswered questions and gaps in clinical data that will help guide clinical research in future outbreaks.
Epidemiology of Ebola (subtype Reston) virus in the Philippines, 1996.
TLDR
This investigation suggests that human EBO-R infection is rare, and none of the 246 employees of the facilities or 4 contacts of previously antibody-positive individuals reported an Ebola-like illness.
Fruit bats as reservoirs of Ebola virus
TLDR
Evidence of asymptomatic infection by Ebola virus is found in three species of fruit bat, indicating that these animals may be acting as a reservoir for this deadly virus.
Human infection due to Ebola virus, subtype Côte d'Ivoire: clinical and biologic presentation.
TLDR
No serologic conversion was detected among contact persons in Côte d'Ivoire or Switzerland, suggesting that infection-control precautions were satisfactory, and a new subtype of Ebola was isolated from the patient's blood on days 4 and 8.
Detection and molecular characterization of Ebola viruses causing disease in human and nonhuman primates.
TLDR
The nonstructural secreted GP (SGP), the primary product of the GP gene, was more highly conserved than the structural GP, indicating different functional roles or evolutionary constraints for these proteins.
Human asymptomatic Ebola infection and strong inflammatory response
TLDR
The asymptomatic, replicative Ebola infection can and does occur in human beings, and the lack of genetic differences between symptomatic and asymPTomatic individuals suggest that asymptonomatic Ebola infection did not result from viral mutations.
The reemergence of Ebola hemorrhagic fever, Democratic Republic of the Congo, 1995. Commission de Lutte contre les Epidémies à Kikwit.
TLDR
In May 1995, an international team characterized and contained an outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in Kikwit, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and terminated by the initiation of barrier-nursing techniques, health education efforts, and rapid identification of cases.

TLDR
It was concluded that pathogenesis of the disease included non-icteric hepatitis and possibly acute pancreatitis as well as disseminated intravascular coagulation, and was caused by a virus morphologically similar to Marburg virus, but immunologically distinct.
