    http://www.streetinsider.com/Press Releases/Hemispherx: U.S. Army Scientists (USAMRIID) Find Ampligen(R) Produces 100% Survival Rate in Ebola Virus Rodent Study/10215281.html

    Ampligen® (rintatolimod), an experimental therapeutic, was utilized with a mouse adapted Ebola virus using multiple groups of mice with varying dosage schedules of Ampligen® given every other day. The most effective dose, resulting in 100% percent survival, corresponded to a human dose of approximately 400 mg, which has been used clinically approximately 50,000 times and has been generally well-tolerated when administered twice weekly. When higher doses of Ampligen® were used in the Ebola-infected mice, the survival rate dropped to 90%. The Ebola-infected mice treated with placebo had a 100% death rate by Day 7 post-infection.

    Ebola virus disease appears to be a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) deficiency disease in which the lethal sequelae stem from the inability of the host (mouse or human) to mount an effective innate immune response.



    The information in this press release includes certain "forward-looking" statements including without limitation statements about additional steps which the FDA may require and Hemispherx may take in continuing to seek commercial approval of the Ampligen® NDA for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the United States.
