LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The drug being credited with potentially saving the lives of two American missionaries infected with the deadly Ebola virus was made right here in Kentucky.
That's according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
The serum wasn't made in a factory but grown in a greenhouse full of genetically modified tobacco plants in Owensboro.
A spokesperson for Kentucky Bio Processing told the newspaper they got a request from Emory University last week for the serum and they complied.
The experimental drug had never been tested on humans.
