Topics from this paper

Role of the Ebolavirus Glycoprotein in Countering Tetherin During Viral Budding
TLDR
A model where the GP1,2 transmembrane domain assists in a budding process that does not allow for incorporation of Tetherin into the budding virions is proposed. Expand
Pathogenic potential of filoviruses: role of geographic origin of primate host and virus strain.
TLDR
Rechallenge experiments showed that protection in survivors of filovirus infections against fatal challenge with Ebola (Zaire) virus is unpredictable and the minimal clinical disease observed in humans infected with the Reston strain is consistent with host- and virus-dependent pathogenicity. Expand

TLDR
Diese Serie von Stellungnahmen zu einzelnen Erregern wird als Zusammenfassung des aktuellen Wissensstandes veröffentlicht, speziell unter transfusionsmedizinisch relevanten Aspekten. Expand
Leading the charge: Médecins Sans Frontières receives the 2015 Lasker~Bloomberg Public Service Award.
TLDR
MSF responders have worked tirelessly to provide care to those infected with Ebola, to educate affected communities, and to support local healthcare providers and are being recognized with the 2015 Lasker~Bloomberg Public Service Award. Expand
Apoptosis Induced In Vitro and In Vivo During Infection by Ebola and Marburg Viruses
TLDR
It is suggested that lymphopenia and lymphoid depletion associated with filoviral infections result from lymphocyte apoptosis induced by a number of factors that may include release of various chemical mediators from filovirus-infected or activated cells, damage to the fibroblastic reticular cell conduit system, and possibly stimulation by a viral protein. Expand
Characteristics of Filoviridae: Marburg and Ebola Viruses
TLDR
Although the main route of infection is known to be person-to-person transmission by intimate contact, the natural reservoir for filoviruses still remains a mystery. Expand
Historical Perspective: What Constitutes Discovery (of a New Virus)?
  • F. Murphy
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Advances in virus research
  • 2016
TLDR
A historic review of the discovery of new viruses leads to reminders of traditions that have evolved over 118 years, and several vignettes have been chosen to illustrate several difficulties in holding to the traditions. Expand
Proposal for a revised taxonomy of the family Filoviridae: classification, names of taxa and viruses, and virus abbreviations
TLDR
The etymological derivation of individual names, their pronunciation, and their correct use are explained, and demarcation criteria for each taxon and virus are elaborate. Expand
Antibody responses to filovirus infections in humans: protective or not?
TLDR
The controversial biological role of antibodies during natural filovirus infections in humans is discussed, which is important for the development of safe and potent vaccines and antibody-based treatments. Expand
Ebola Virus Disease, Diagnostics and Therapeutics: Where is the Consensus in Over Three Decades of Clinical Research?
TLDR
The availability, suitability, and significance of current advances in diagnostics, vaccines, and therapeutic options for the Ebola disease and the need to develop novel vaccines and antiviral therapies that are effective against all known Ebola virus species are focused on. Expand

Agent of Disease Contracted from Green Monkeys
TLDR
An infectious agent obtained from patients who became ill after exposure to tissues of African green monkeys is viral in character and completely resistant to the effects of the metabolic inhibitor 5-bromodeoxyuridine, which may mean that RNA is the genetic material. Expand
