DNA vaccine shows promising, long-term results against Ebola virus

Oct. 10 (UPI) -- A synthetic DNA vaccine is showing immediate and long-term promising results against the Ebola virus in preclinical animal research. Scientists at The Wistar Institute Vaccine and Immunotherapy Centers designed optimized synthetic DNA vaccine candidates that target a virus surface protein called glycoprotein. The findings were published Wednesday in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. The Zaire Ebolavirus infection causes a severe hemorrhagic fever with a 50 percent fatality rate. Ebola, which is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission, first appeared in 1976 in what is now, Nzara, South Sudan, and in Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Watch: Norah O'Donnell reacts to Moonves exit Months have passed since celebrities first wore Time's Up pins on the red carpet, but the advocacy organization hasn't stopped fighting for women facing harassment. On Sunday, Ronan Farrow published another bombshell investigation in The New Yorker. In his latest story, six new women accused CBS chief executive Leslie Moonves of sexual misconduct. Moonves, one of America's highest-paid CEOs, stepped down hours later — but still with hope of an eventual payout from his former employer. "As of a couple of days ago, they were still talking about potentially letting him leave with a very generous exit package, up to the neighborhood of $ 100 million," Farrow said on CNN.

Randy Brooks' son had a request three years ago: What could his dad do to make wildland firefighting safer? To Brooks, a professor at the University of Idaho's College of Natural Resources who deals with wildland firefighting, it was more of a command.
