That's interesting, both virus behave the same, both are fatal, but when it comes to antivirals it can treat both of them.

So a treatment to ebola can treat Marbrug

That is funny! NC was heavy tobacco growing, then the government sued them you know the story.

I saw a women CDC expert on a news channel saying they had to grow tobacco to get the cure. Well isn't it just a little after crop time there should be plenty right now.

Now which brand of cigarettes should we smoke, not to get Ebola? Joking

OK caught up finally.

You guys all sound like a bunch of crazy confused nut jobs!

Add me to the mix of course because I am just in shock by all of the updates from page 82 forward.

Mind blowing and truly amazing that this is not black and white, clean and concise on the authorities part, the affected and the medias lack of responsible reporting.

That said, you guys are more than amazing in your ability to stick with this insanity and put the pieces together as you have.

So so many posts I wished I could star dozens of times.

To be honest I have a fear that they will shut down ATS for giving too much contrary and truthful information.

Where would we meet if that did happen? An ATS FB page or something? More like BTS FB page...

And the tobacco capital, something in the tobacco is where they say has something in it to cure Ebola.


Well to be clear, there is nothing in tobacco that cures ebola or any other virus. The antibodies are created in mice first then injected into tobacco to reproduce them. This particular strain of the plant (same one used to create a flu vaccine) that is being used is simply well suited for use in this type of bioengineering technique. Similar antibodies were harvested from Chinese hamsters, though they were, apparently, of an inferior quality.

That being said, the company that produces this strain of tobacco is owned by Reynold's America, Inc of R.J. Reynolds's Tobacco fame.

Wiki...


Monoclonal antibodies were first created in mice by injecting them with antigens from Ebola, harvesting their spleens, and fusing mature B-cells producing monoclonal antibodies with cancer cell lines to create hybridomas. In a process called "magnifection," tobacco plants are infected with the viruses, using Agrobacterium cultures. Subsequently, antibodies are extracted and purified from the plants.


Forbes...


What is known is that the antibodies are produced in a Australian strain of the tobacco plant (Nicotiana benthamiana) by Kentucky Bioprocessing in Owensboro, Kentucky, a 23-acre, contract R&D and protein production company that was acquired in January by Reynolds America, Inc, the parent company of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco... ZMapp isn’t produced in the waving fields of tobacco one would find in Kentucky, Virginia, or North Carolina. Instead, the version of tobacco used by KBP is one that is easily manipulated with recombinant DNA techniques and amenable to automated greenhouse operations. This same tobacco species is one also used by Medicago USA for development of a pandemic influenza virus.

WHAT??!!!!! What??!!! My brother in law is in India at this very moment working!!!! Better tell him to get the hell on a plane & get out!!

Lol, 1 bilion people in India.Your brother have half a bilion better chances to die from failing coconuts than ebola.I'm having a good laugh from some posters here



We just checked, good news is, he made it home today, before this news came out!! Lol....he has to go back obviously, my fear was they would decide to start keeping planes out of the infected areas, & he would be stuck there. That would suck. Come to think of it, their sending some of the infected back to the u.s. Anyway...I have to get caught up, catch you all shortly......thanks again for the updates!!

Perhaps they are going to allow them to complete their own pre-burial ritual, you know with touching the body of the dead and all, then send them back to NC to not be in isolation.....being sarcastic. a reply to: CardiffGiant

NAIS DR Anthony Fauchi on PBS right now, experimental Brensid??? experimental w/ ebola hopefully he can respond to it.

Naming a bunch of them which block the building blocks of the DNA.

Mentions WH and the pros and cons of ramping up security checks...



Talking about entervirus... serious situation close to 590 cases,

I live in owensboro Kentucky and the only info I here about this is on here. There is nothing in our local paper or on the news about it that I have seen. I know exactly where the place is though, it's not even 2 miles from my home.a reply to: adomol

Just asked my husband if he had heard anything about it. He said he hadn't but that there is crazy security around the entire complex now that has never been there before. He said he can see army type vehicle's around the entire complex. He said he noticed it about 2 weeks ago and thought it was odd.

Begging proper gear, not given the means to do it properly.

Sorry if this went through already. it looked as though the connection failed the first time. Post from ProMEDMail.org

Marbrug Virus Disease: Uganda



Troubling, to say the least. But thank you for bringing it to our awarness.
I also want to share a really interesting article (that I found linked at the bottom of your article) written by an infectious disease specialist, talking about how the system is 'broken.'

High Tech Medicine Alone Cannot Protect U.S. from Ebola
Excerpt:


Medicine is among the most hierarchical of workplace cultures. This is great for issuing orders and making sure they’re obeyed, but can mean certain team members are valued and listened to more than others. Nurses function as patient advocates, for example, but physicians often dismiss their concerns.

Even among physicians, hierarchies abound. Infectious-disease specialists, experts in diagnosing and treating diseases like Ebola, (full disclosure: I am one) are the least-well-paid doctors in the United States — even though some may have more years of training than, say, a generalist. Those of us who go into the field have reasons other than compensation for doing so.

Though a news report quoted a hospital official as saying Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital was “well prepared” to care for a patient with Ebola, it was unlikely that an expert in diagnosing and treating diseases like Ebola was asked to examine the patient in Dallas before he was sent home. That oversight, if true, would expose a serious — and dangerous — shortcoming of a system that assigns different values to different doctors.

Wow, awesome to get a first hand account of what is going on at that bioprocessing facility Kentuckymama. Thanks!

Not surprising that they are not letting the locals know about what is going on there. And all that security makes sense at a location that is working with ebola. Last thing we need is big tobacco causing an outbreak by letting some whack job into their labs. What a headline that would be!

a reply to: adomolHoly Crap!!! I feel so stupid. It didn't even occur to me until I read your post that there is most likely Ebola right down the road from me and my babies....
BTW, the whole town is full of backwoods, toothless, no spread on the family tree, hillbilly whack jobs......I'm not feeling real safe right now.

ETA... I've got a dr. appt in the morning. Ill be driving right by there. Anything I should look for? I'm gonna see how many "army type" vehicle's I see.

I really don't think you have anything to worry about as far at something coming from that facility. The fact that they have beefed up security is a good thing. This is big bucks for R.J. Reynold's after all. They are not going to be doing anything to risk that. And with their megabucks they have undoubtly funded a state of the art lab there in Kentucky with the same safety measures used at the CDC or the U.S. Army's Fort Dettrick for working with hot agents.

As for anything to look out for? Just make sure those army/security guys are still walking!

Thanks, I'm not gonna stop or even slow down. But, I do have to get off the bypass at carter road, it's right there. I'll at least be able to look while driving by.......with the truck Windows up.
