Canadians join Scripps Research Institute scientists to reveal weak spots in Ebola's defenses

This is exciting research, and I am proud to see that Canada has a key role in this!

The new picture of ZMapp reveals the two antibodies that bind near the base of the virus seem to be competing for the same site. While this appears to be a particularly vulnerable spot on Ebola virus’s surface as identified in previous studies, one question now is whether future cocktails should continue to use two antibodies to target this site or try to attack the virus from a third angle.
