Yeah, not sure why that mattered.

NavyDoc has done a sufficient job of refuting the points made without picking on someone's language skills.

Experimental Ebola Serum Grown in Tobacco Leaves
By Brenda Goodman, MA
WebMD Health News
Reviewed by Michael W. Smith, MD

Aug. 4, 2014 -- ZMapp, the experimental treatment rushed to two Americans infected with Ebola in Africa, is grown in specially modified leaves of tobacco -- a plant better known for harming health than healing.

“We complied with a request from Emory University and Samaritan’s Purse to provide a very limited amount of ZMapp last week,” says David Howard, a spokesman for Reynolds American Services, the parent company of Kentucky BioProcessing. The small biopharma company in Owensboro, KY, has been contracted to grow the drug.

Making the serum is slow, in part, because the plants must be grown for several weeks before they are “infected” with a type of protein. “Basically the plants act like a photocopier of the proteins,” Howard says.

Once they’re infected, Howard says it takes a week for the plants to make enough of the protein to harvest and distill into a useable drug.
www.webmd.com...




he compound used to treat Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol was only formulated in January, according to Larry Zeitlin, PhD, president of Mapp Biopharmaceuticals, the California company that co-developed the drug.

It has been tested in monkeys, but had never before been given to human patients before it was rushed to Brantly and Writebol.

Zeitlin says he hasn’t even had a chance to publish a scientific paper on the compound, which is a combination of three antibodies that are thought to help in two ways.

One of the antibodies alerts the immune system to infected cells so they can be destroyed, says Erica Ollmann Saphire, Ph.D. She's a professor of immunology at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA. She’s been given a government grant to study the antibody cocktail.

Saphire says the other two antibodies probably prevent the virus from making more copies of itself. “We’re still trying to figure out exactly how it works,” she says. “But it seems to neutralize the virus.”
Cautious Optimism

Other experts who study Ebola urged caution with reports of Dr. Brantly’s dramatic recovery on the drug.

Thomas Geisbert, MD, professor of infectious disease at The University of Texas Galveston Medical Branch, has been studying the Ebola virus since 1988.

He says news accounts that Brantley’s rash disappeared in just an hour after receiving a dose of the drug don’t make sense to him.

If he could get BASIC medical facts right then sure it can be put down to a non english speaker.

But he/she is getting facts wrong a high school student should know.

Not what the NAvyDoc said in his post, and not what I'm addressing.

Glad you're here, NavyDoc, I asked a question a few pages back that wasn't answered about shedding the virus:

I know it's going to definitely be in the fluids of a person with symptoms, but when a person has no symptoms yet, is there absolutely 100% zero chance of even a single virus cell being present in those fluids? Or is it just highly unlikely that the amount of virus in the fluids would infect anyone? How is it that zero virus cells get into things like saliva or sweat until it's reached critical mass for symptoms to manifest?

Ahh....he told her she should have the first dose! That splains it.


I don't know how many times I have to say this. IT. IS. NOT. A. DRUG. It is a serum of antibodies made from individuals who have survived the disease.
well it is a drug then!

What are your opinions on ebola being introduced to Countries that have had no previous experience with ebola in humans out in the general populous.

Antitoxins.


Not drugs.


You need to learn the difference.

An antitoxin is essentially antibodies to the proteins found on the venom of venomous animals.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

A drug is a chemical that does not use the antibody process but instead changes the chemical and biological function of the target organism.

Nothing is 100% However, the majority of virus shedding is after the patient is symptomatic. This is why viruses like ebola tend to "burn out" and viruses like HIV spread--one can shed HIV without symptoms.
