Dr. Leslie Lobel told IS- RAEL21c that he and fellow principal investigator Dr. Victoria Yavelsky have spent many years studying native immunity to Ebola and an- other equally lethal Equato- rial African virus, Marburg, at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev's Center for Emerging Diseases, Tropical Diseases and AIDS. Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever, is one of the deadliest viruses in the world. It kills up to 90 percent of its victims, while Marburg, another hemor- rhagic fever, kills up to 88 percent. Ebolacan be spread through sweat and saliva and there is no vaccine or cure. In the latest outbreak, the worst ever, more than 670 people have died, including Americans. "Currently we've tracked all Ebola and Marburg virus survivors in Uganda, studied their immune responses to these viruses and identified survivors with a strong im- mune response," he said. "We take blood samples from them and isolate monoclonal antibodies that neutralize the virus in our lab here at Ben- Gunon. Yavelsky and Lobel's thera- peutic approach was proven as a successful potential treatment by their colleagues in the U.S. military, and at several other laboratories. This approach is regarded as the most promising way to prevent Ebola and Marburg, and it could be available within five years. Lobel travels to Africa about five times a year. "We have set up a base laboratory in Entebbe, with our Ugandan colleagues, so that we can process human blood samples in under 12 hours from the time of collection, which is required for our work. After the samples are tested and deemed to be non-infectious, we ship them to Israeland our team here develops antibodies from the samples," Lobel said. Five-year plan "We have a five-year plan and I believe we could have proof of concept with hu- man monoclonal antibodies in monkeys in three to five years," Lobel predicted. "If we can prove it in two animal models we can eventually use it in humans."
