Few Treatment Options For US Ebola Patient

A U.S. healthcare worker being treated for Ebola at the National Institutes of Health has few treatment options. Scientists are working to speed some experimental therapies through the testing process, but there's nothing tried and true available yet. The patient, who isn't being identified, arrived early Friday at the NIH outside Washington, D.C. He or she is listed in serious condition. Doctors have found that supporting patients by replacing fluids lost to diarrhea and vomiting helps them survive, so the patient will get intravenous saline, with carefully measured minerals called electrolytes.
