Extremely disturbing news is being reported by England's The Guardian News Paper. The Guardian reports that the entire United Kingdom Ebola Medical Team, composed of 14 healthcare professionals, has "walked out" of an Freetown Ebola treatment center over the voiced concern of the alleged unethical practice of medicine.
The 22 bed Ebola treatment center has been managed by an NGO known as Emergency. It has been alleged that Emergency, established by some of Italy's finest cardiac surgeons, is providing patients with Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) an untested "experimental medication". The concern voiced by the Brits is that the "experimental medication" is used to treat abnormal heart rhythms.
Amiodarone is known as a Class III anti-arrhythmic drug. The properties of Amiodarone enabled it to be used on patients with either ventricular or atrial abnormal rhythms. The major side effect is toxicity of the lungs. No studies or clinical trials have been done on humans or animals for Amiodarone's efficacy in treating Ebola, according to the UK team.
