New #Ebolavirus research shows how 2 powerful antibodies can neutralize #Ebola—and Sudan virus

“Finding antibodies with this breadth is important because we don’t know which virus in the genus of ebolaviruses is going to break out next."

To save lives, doctors need broad-spectrum therapies that neutralize as many Ebolavirus species as possible.

This @CellPressNews study shows 2 potent antibodies that can neutralize the well-known Ebola virus and Sudan virus (also responsible for large, deadly outbreaks. Graphical abstract showing ...
The team used #CryoEM to get a clear view of these two antibodies in complex with the #Ebolavirus glycoprotein.

1 antibody, called 1C11, neutralizes the virus by binding with a site on the fusion machinery the virus would normally use to enter and infect host cells. Image

1. A quarter of the world’s total #SARS-Cov2 virus genomes have been sequenced on @nanopore devices. First sketched out as an idea here by David Deamer in 1989 this series of tweets covers the long history of nanopore sequencing.
2. Taking 25 years to fully materialise the development of nanopore sequencing has involved close collaboration between academia and industry and many actors from different disciplines and backgrounds. Each has their own story to tell.…
3. Another early pioneer of @nanopore sequencing was #HaganBayley, a British chemist who in the 1990s began working on stochastic sensing as tool to detect metal ions to track submarines as they move through water and for other applications.

Das neue #Querdenken-Camp in der Nähe des #Kanzleramt|s steht erst wenige Stunden und schon „witzeln“ die #Querdenker wieder öffentlich auf #Youtube über das Erhängen von Menschen.
Die rechten „Gelbwesten Berlin“ sind auch bereits im Camp angekommen.

No mention of #NurseJustina the Nurse that paid ultimate sacrifice to save Nigerians from death of Ebola virus.Yet Nurses are still at the forefront fighting #COVID19Nigeria.Nurses deserve better treatment and placement.
#WorldHealthDay @NCDCgov @Nursinggroupadm @Nursingworld_Ng
Effective and efficient healthcare system cannot be achieved until @NigeriaGov recognises the impact Nurses are making in our country. @nannm_nigeria
As @WHO celebrates Nurses and midwives worldwide #WorldHealthDay. @NigeriaGov should use this medium to empower Nurses and midwives in the country. @RoaringNurse

2/ Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation & world's most populous black nation of about 180m people, has just recorded its first INDEX case of the deadly #CoronaVirus- #COVID19. Before we say Jack Robbinson, trading of blame games 've started across mainstream & social media.
3/ Against this backdrop, Ex-Vice President & candidate of the @OfficialPDPNig at the 2019 Presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar @atiku, Friday, in a statement, urged Nigerians, not to engage in blame games, but seek effective solutions, like the #EbolaCrisis in 2014.
