MIL 77, Experimental Ebola Drug

A UK military medic who has been discharged from hospital after being declared free of Ebola said it was thanks to medics that she is alive.

Cpl Anna Cross was the first person in the world to be given the experimental Ebola drug MIL 77, her doctors said. Cpl Cross, aged 25, from Cambridge, caught the virus while working as a volunteer nurse in Sierra Leone. During her illness she lost 22lb (10kg) and spent 14 days being treated at London's Royal Free Hospital.

Doctors at the hospital said they were "absolutely thrilled" she had made a full recovery. They described the drug she was given as a close relative of the medicine ZMapp - which British nurse William Pooley received when he was treated for Ebola. Experts at the Royal Free said MIL 77 was made in China and that a limited supply was available, should anyone need it. It is too soon to know what role the drug played in Cpl Cross's recovery, they added.
