Antibody Teamwork Against Ebola Virus Disease

Immunity. 2020 Feb 18;52(2):217-219. doi: 10.1016/j.immuni.2020.01.016.

Abstract

Antibodies are key components to prevent and treat Ebola virus disease (EVD). In this issue of Immunity, Gilchuk et al. decipher the underlying mechanism of two antibodies that cooperatively target Ebolaviruses. The study provides insight into an antibody combination that potentiates antiviral activity and is able to prevent EVD in nonhuman primates.
