(Geneva) -- World Health Organization medical experts are backing the use of experimental drugs to fight West Africa's deadly Ebola outbreak. The panel ruled today that it is ethical to offer unproven drugs or vaccines as potential treatments, despite the fact they haven't been fully tested or licensed. Liberia will soon give two doctors infected with Ebola an experimental drug called ZMapp that's been supplied by a company in California. However, company officials are saying their supply of the drug is now exhausted, and it may take months to produce more.
