What is Ebanga?
Ebanga is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Ridgeback Biotherapeutics LP. They are one of only two companies to obtain FDA approval for a therapeutic against Zaire ebolavirus infection (Ebola or Ebola virus disease). Ebanga was granted orphan drug designation and breakthrough therapy designation by the FDA for Ebola treatment in May 2019 and September 2019 respectively.
Ebanga is a Zaire ebolavirus glycoprotein-directed recombinant IgG1 human monoclonal antibody used to treat infections caused by Zaire ebolavirus in adult and pediatric patients, including neonates born to mothers who are RT-PCR positive for Zaire ebolavirus infection. Ebola can change over time, and factors such as resistance or changes in viral virulence could reduce the clinical effect of antiviral drugs.
During an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2018-2019, Ebanga was evaluated in a clinical trial. The PALM trial was led by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the DRC’s Institut National de Recherche Biomédicale with contributions from other agencies.
The safety and efficacy of Ebanga were evaluated in a multi-center, open-label, randomized controlled trial. 174 participants with confirmed virus infection received Ebanga intravenously as a single 50 mg/kg infusion and 168 participants received an investigational control. The primary efficacy endpoint was 28-day mortality.
What doses of Ebanga are available?
Ebanga is available in injection form, in the following doses: 400 mg lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial.
