The Owensboro made drug, Zmapp, is making it's way to Africa to hopefully help curb the outbreak.
The experimental serum marked its first human tests on the 2 Americans brought back to the US last week.
Doctors say those patients appear to be improving.
The White House and Food and Drug Administration have approved the Liberian government's request to send sample doses.
At first, it'll be used to treat doctors who've contracted ebola.
There are questions being raised as to why the drug has not been shipped to West Africa, where more people are sick.
