Meta-Analysis of Predictive Symptoms for Ebola Virus Disease
Jain, V., Charlett, A., and Brown, C. (2020). Meta-Analysis of Predictive Symptoms for Ebola Virus Disease. PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. 14(10).
This literature review aims to identify predictive symptoms associated with Ebola virus disease through a meta-analysis performed for each symptom with the greatest risk for EVD infection. Results show that while current literature is not conclusive for identifying symptoms predictive of EVD, patients with symptoms often found late in EVD were more likely to have a final Ebola diagnosis.
