I have read, has been around for 40 years, so Google Books

should also have valid information about this.

Rapid diagnosis of

Author information


The largest outbreak on record of 
Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) occurred in
Uganda from August 2000 to January 2001. The outbreak was centered in the
Gulu district of northern Uganda, with secondary transmission to other districts.
After the initial diagnosis of Sudan ebolavirus by the National Institute for Virology
in Johannesburg, South Africa, a temporary diagnostic laboratory was established
within the Gulu district at St. Mary's Lacor Hospital. The laboratory used antigen
capture and reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) to diagnose Sudan ebolavirus
infection in suspect patients. The RT-PCR and antigen-capture diagnostic assays
proved very effective for detecting ebolavirus in patient serum, plasma, and whole
blood. In samples collected very early in the course of infection, the RT-PCR assay
could detect ebolavirus 24 to 48 h prior to detection by antigen capture. More than
1,000 blood samples were collected, with multiple samples obtained from many
patients throughout the course of infection. Real-time quantitative RT-PCR was
used to determine the viral load in multiple samples from patients with fatal and
nonfatal cases, and these data were correlated with the disease outcome.
RNA copy levels in patients who died averaged 2 log(10) higher than those in
patients who survived. Using clinical material from multiple EHF patients, we
sequenced the variable region of the glycoprotein. This Sudan ebolavirus strain
was not derived from either the earlier Boniface (1976) or Maleo (1979) strain,
but it shares a common ancestor with both. Furthermore, both sequence and
epidemiologic data are consistent with the outbreak having originated from a
single introduction into the human population.
