Marburg virus is one of the causes of viral haemorrhagic fever. It is an RNA virus belonging to the Filoviridae family, which also includes the Ebola virus. It is known to be found in fruit bats but can infect humans where it transmits from person to person via body fluids. Mortality rates are often >50% and there is no vaccine or therapeutic currently available. Recent outbreaks have occurred in Uganda and Angola.

ViroStat has released several monoclonal antibodies to the Marburg virus. Specificities include the VP40 matrix protein and the nucleoprotein (NP). These antibodies are reactive with the native virus and do not cross-react with the Ebola virus.
