Ebola, one of the world’s deadliest viruses, has been confirmed in Uganda, where 14 people have already died from what health officials were calling a mysterious illness.
Army scientists have demonstrated, for the first time, that antibody-based therapies can successfully protect monkeys from the deadly Ebola and Marburg viruses.
A team of international researchers has discovered a new Ebola-like virus – Lloviu virus -- in bats from northern Spain.
Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have identified a cellular protein used by the deadly Ebola virus.
A team of researchers has identified a cellular protein that acts as a receptor for Ebola virus and Marburg virus. Furthermore, the team showed that an antibody, which binds to the receptor protein, is able to block infection by both viruses.
Marburg virus, or Marburg, is the standard name for the genus of viruses Marburgvirus which contains the species, Lake Victoria Marburgvirus. It causes Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever (MHF) which originated with primates. It originated in Africa and can infect humans and primates. It is in the same taxonomic family as Ebola and both are identical structurally although they elicit different antibodies. It was named after the location of the first outbreak in Marburg, Germany in 1967. The...
Filoviridae family of viruses belongs to the order of Mononegavirales. Filoviruses cause hemorrhagic fever often with fatal bleeding and coagulating abnormalities. The name comes from the Latin word filum, which alludes to the thread-like appearance of virus particles. They are single stranded negative sense RNA viruses that target primates. The two genera are Ebola-Reston virus and Marburg virus. The family was discovered in 1967 when 31 people were infected with the Marburg virus in...
Ebolavirus (EBOV), a viral genus, is the disease Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), a viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF). The virus gets its name from the Ebola River Valley in the Democratic Republic of the Congo where the first outbreak occurred in 1976. The virus was obscure until 1989 when several widely publicized outbreaks occurred among monkeys in the United States. The virus disrupts the endothelial cells lining the interior surface of blood vessels. The platelets become unable to...
