"The AU Commission, through the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), is reinforcing its support to the Ebola response in the DRC and other parts of Africa, following the declaration of the outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern," the AU said in its monthly bulletin issued on Wednesday.According to the 55 member pan African bloc, a total of 1,782 deaths were reported due to the ongoing Ebola outbreak in DRC as of July 27, in which the overall Ebola fatality ratio has reached 67 percent.
NEWS ABOUT Ebola, a viral disease that kills up to 90% of those it infects, is usually grim. The latest outbreak, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has thus far killed nearly 1,900 people and rages on. But on August 12th the grimness lifted somewhat with the announcement that two anti Ebola treatments being tested in the country have proved effective. If administered when the first signs of infection appear, they boost survival rates to about 90%.The treatments in question employ antibodies. These are special protein molecules made by the immune system in response to infection. They work by locking onto specific parts of invading pathogens, or of body cells infected by those pathogens either gumming the target up and disabling it or marking it for destruction by other parts of the immune system. It is possible, however, to give the immune system a helping hand by identifying suitable antibodies in advance, manufacturing them in bulk, and then injecting them into those infected by the target organism.

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection globally. However, national programs for screening and treatment have been suboptimal in controlling incident infections. Untreated or repetitive infections with Chlamydia trachomatis frequently result in pelvic inflammatory disease in 1 in 6 women, and approximately half of infants born to mothers with chlamydia will develop congenital infection; such infection is further responsible for 370,000 disability adjusted life years annually.According to study results published in the Lancet Infectious Disease, researchers at the National Institute for Health Research Imperial Clinical Research Facility at Hammersmith Hospital in London have demonstrated immunogenic responses in the first phase 1 human trials of a novel vaccine for the prevention of C trachomatis infection, based on the recombinant protein subunit CTH522 of the bacteria. The researchers included 35 healthy women aged 19 to 45 years who were not pregnant; had no history of chlamydia, gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease other significant gynecologic disease, HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or syphilis; and who agreed to use 2 approved forms of contraception and to refrain from sexual intercourse for the trial period. Participants were randomly assigned in a 3:3:1 ratio to receive either CTH522:CAF01 (CTH522 adjuvanted with CAFO1 liposomes), CTH522:AH (CTH522 adjuvanted with aluminum hydroxide), or placebo, followed by 2 intranasal doses of unadjuanted CTH522 or placebo.
