A nasal spray, being developed as a potential vaccine for the deadly Ebola virus, has been found to protect monkeys in pre-clinical trials.

Scientists at the University of Texas discovered the breathable vaccine offers long-term protection against the virus.

Since the current outbreak erupted in West Africa earlier this year, almost 5,000 people have lost their lives – the majority in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

A number of injectable experimental vaccines are being trialled in the US, UK and Mali, with plans to extend human trials into other parts of Europe, Gabon and Kenya.
