    > Scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health have developed an investigational vaccine that protected cynomolgus macaques against four types of hemorrhagic fever viruses endemic to overlapping regions in Africa.

    > Importantly, the monkeys infected in the study were exposed to different strains of Sudan virus and Lassa virus than those in the candidate vaccine to help the researchers determine whether the vaccine would be cross-protective.

    > The scientists state that the addition of the Lassa virus component to their multivalent vaccine is an exciting research advance as they already had developed an investigational trivalent vaccine that provided protection against Ebola, Sudan and Marburg viruses.
