Researchers at Boston University and USAAMRID published a set of molecules today, which appear to inhibit viral transcription in cells. The research was carried out on Nonsegmented Negative-Strand RNA viruses including Ebola. These aren't the most drug like compounds I've seen. It's also important to remember it's still in vitro studies. There is still a long way to go, but hey! it's a start!
