The US government has made sustained biodefense-related investments in basic and applied R&D aimed at producing anti-Ebola MCMs for more than a decade. Investments made by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), through Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases Program funding, and by the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), through the Chemical and Biological Defense Program (CBDP), have led to the development of a majority of the countermeasures in the pipeline. In addition, biodefense investments in building advanced development capabilities at the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and in building mechanisms for emergency clinical testing and emergency regulatory approval at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are now proving critical to current efforts to rapidly confirm safety and efficacy and ramp up production of countermeasures.
