China approves new Ebola prevention drugs

China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has approved three
home-grown Ebola test reagents to be used in prevention of the spread of
the virus.

The three test reagent products are made by Daan Gene Co., Ltd of
Sun Yat-Sen University, Shenzhen Puruikang and Shanghai ZJ Bio-Tech Co.,
Ltd respectively. The products will be reserved for contingency
situations, said CFDA.

The statement did not detail how fast the reagent can diagnose the
Ebola virus infection but according to a Friday report from China News
Service, the product from Puruikang has high sensitivity and accuracy.
