Problem: Ebola virus; Reaction: fear; Solution: found in 2012 by Fort Detrick & the M-I Complex

Update: Nigeria wants this treatment sent to them.

The only known effective treatment against Ebola that the government will admit to happens to have been developed by our own friendly and fuzzy military-industrial complex at Fort Detrick and Big Pharma. A solution in search of a problem that has a known public reaction is again occurring. What are the odds?

Abstract

Filovirus infections can cause a severe and often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates, including great apes. Here, three anti-Ebola virus mouse/human chimeric mAbs (c13C6, h-13F6, and c6D8) were produced in Chinese hamster ovary and in whole plant (Nicotiana benthamiana) cells. In pilot experiments testing a mixture of the three mAbs (MB-003), we found that MB-003 produced in both manufacturing systems protected rhesus macaques from lethal challenge when administered 1 h postinfection. In a pivotal follow-up experiment, we found significant protection (P < 0.05) when MB-003 treatment began 24 or 48 h postinfection (four of six survived vs. zero of two controls). In all experiments, surviving animals that received MB-003 experienced little to no viremia and had few, if any, of the clinical symptoms observed in the controls. The results represent successful postexposure in vivo efficacy by a mAb mixture and suggest that this immunoprotectant should be further pursued as a postexposure and potential therapeutic for Ebola virus exposure.

This government just lies,

This government just lies, lies, and lies some more. Regardless of the efficacy of this particular experimental drug, the CDC in the USA is certainly hiding pertinent facts relating to this current outbreak of Ebola. Allegedly, the test for Ebola on the suspect in NYC was negative, but the CDC refuses to state the actual illness if it wasn't Ebola. I'll guarantee the reader that something nasty is ALREADY circulating the USA which the CDC doesn't want the public to know.

Isn't it interesting that

Isn't it interesting that after posting my previous remark, Drudge is reporting that the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Africa is convening a rare recess hearing on Ebola. We're not being shown the whole picture by any stretch of the imagination.

What, no love for this post?

We'll have to change that.

The Ol' Keynesian Economics being utilized by Big Pharma this time, EH?!

My question to you, Steve, is are they trying to create a pandemic with this?

If not, what is the Sleight-of-Hand topic being hidden?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

SteveMT's picture

Thanks for the bump/love.

By the exponential numbers, Ebola is a pandemic. Is this a man-made pandemic is yet to be determined. The fact that the m-i complex developed their treatment for Ebola two years ago makes me wonder.
