Abstract

In the absence of any known therapeutically useful drug or vaccine available to combat Ebola, the disease has emerged as one of the most globally important crisis of the year. In the affected West African regions, no one seems to know what drug to use or even try on Ebola patients, while in the West, the debate on discovering new drugs versus repurposing old ones is heating up. Because Ebola affected countries are highly reliant on traditional medicines, we herewith suggest recording plants used by Ebola survivors as they may serve as sources of novel therapeutic agents in the future.
