Ebola virus (EBOV), an emerging pathogen, is the causative agent of a rapidly progressive hemorrhagic fever with high mortality rates. There are currently no approved vaccines or treatments available for Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Standard plaque assays are currently the only reliable techniques for enumerating the virus. Effective drug-discovery screening as(More)
The biodegradation of phenolic compounds under sulfate-reducing conditions was studied in sediments from northern Indiana. Phenol, p-cresol and 4-chlorophenol were selected as test substrates and added to sediment suspensions from four sites at an initial concentration of 10 mg/liter. Degradative abilities of the sediment microorganisms from the four sites(More)
A plaque assay for quantitating filoviruses in virus stocks, prepared viral challenge inocula and samples from research animals has recently been fully characterized and standardized for use across multiple institutions performing Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) studies. After standardization studies were completed, Good Laboratory Practices (GLP)-compliant(More)
