San Diego Union-Tribune

Ebola drug maker Mapp Biopharmaceutical is working on several fronts to increase supplies of the potentially life-saving medicine as fast as possible, Mapp’s chief executive, Kevin Whaley, said Thursday.

Mapp has teamed up with a pharmaceutical partner to make more of the drug, ZMapp, Whaley said in a rare interview. Additionally, Mapp is exploring whether the manufacturing process can be made more efficient, and whether ZMapp can be given in smaller doses and still be effective.
