HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, AUGUST 15, 2014 PAGE 7A Ebola From page 6A He noted that the work being done at Ben-Gurion University is essential, since there are few studies on sur- vivors of Ebola and there is no effective treatment thus far. "We're quite advanced in terms of studying the im- mune response in survivors in central Africa to develop a prophylactic and thera- peutic [approach]," he told ISRAEL21c. The Israeli company Vecoy Nanomedicines is develop- ing a biomedical technology platform that tricks a virus into "committing suicide," a tactic that could neutral- ize viral threats like Ebola, hepatitis and HIV. However, Vecoy's Dr. Eitan Eliram told ISRAEL21c thatVecoy has not yet found sufficient funding to go forward. Several other experimental vaccines and therapeutic ap- proaches to Ebola and Mar- burgmmostly in the United States and Canada--are in various stages of develop- ment. The current outbreak was noticed last February in Guinea, a country that is normally outside the usual ecosystem for Ebola, accord- Dr. Lobel and colleagues ing to Lobel. At the end of March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control sent a team to assist Guinea Ministry of Health and World Health Organization (WHO) in for- mulating an international response to the outbreak that is now affecting other African countries including Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.
