Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cases of relapsed Ebola virus disease involving symptoms in the central nervous system are reminiscent of our past observations with some nonhuman primates (NHPs) that survived acute Ebola virus infection. We document our findings in detail here and suggest that this phenomenon can be further investigated in NHPs.
