The public agency Swissmedic which regulates pharmaceuticals in the country approved, today November 6, the conducting of clinical trials to test another experimental vaccine to combat the Ebola virus, developed by the Canadian Public Health Agency in a Geneva hospital, announced Bertrand Levrat, the institution’s director, according to Telesur.
