Serum Being Used to Treat Ebola Coming from Owensboro

-     The Lexington-Herald Leader is reporting that the serum being used to treat the two Americans who contracted Ebola -- known as Z-Mapp -- was produced at a facility in Owensboro.
    The serum wasn't manufactured, but grown in a greenhouse full of genetically modified tobacco plants.
    Kentucky Bioprocessing conducts contract research and development for San Diego-based Mapp Biopharmaceutical.
    The experimental drug apparently had never been tested on humans.
