WASHINGTON Women's Martellus Bennett Jersey , Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Canadian researchers said Wednesday they have developed an antibody treatment that may be able to prevent death from Ebola virus even when given three full days after infection.
The findings, published in the U.S. journal Science Translational Medicine, suggested that it may be possible to develop a cure for Ebola even after the virus can be detected in the blood and disease symptoms have become apparent.
Although rare Women's Elandon Roberts Jersey , Ebola virus is considered one of the most if not the most aggressive virus known to date in part because of its rapidity to kill, which can be within one week from exposure or three to four days from when the first symptoms become apparent. This leaves very little time for any treatment to act and save a sick individual.
"For this reason, such a treatment has been considered by many to be closer to the domain of science fiction than contemporary scientific research Women's Adam Butler Jersey ," lead author Qiu Xiangguo at the Public Health Agency of Canada told Xinhua.
In their study, the researchers gave Ebola-infected monkeys a treatment made of three specific antibodies in combination with interferon alpha, a molecule that is produced naturally by the body to fight viruses.
The antibodies are "like three little but powerful missiles" that target three different outer regions of the virus Women's Mike Gillislee Jersey , Qiu said. Once in contact with the virus external coat, these antibodies interfere with the virus lifecycle and reduce the ability of the virus to reproduce. At the same time, the interferon alpha boosts the defenses of the infected individual by stimulating a natural but rapid and robust anti-viral response Women's Rex Burkhead Jersey , she said.
The combination of antibody and interferon therapy was 75 percent and 100 percent protective in cynomolgus and rhesus monkeys when given three days post-infection. About half of the cynomolgus monkeys were protected at four days post-infection in cases where only interferon alpha was given earlier, one day post- infection, Qiu said.
"Although we were very optimistic we were not expecting to see 100 percent survival in Ebola-infected non-human primates when treated only three days before they succumb to the disease on average Women's Lawrence Guy Jersey ," Qiu said.
"This study shows that what seemed impossible to many, i.e. to develop a cure capable of stopping Ebola virus on its track only a few days before death, has now been made and proven efficacious in conditions that are at least as serious if not more severe than what has been observed and described in humans Women's Stephon Gilmore Jersey ," she added.
The researchers said they have tentatively scheduled a phase I safety trial, slated for the end of 2014 or early 2015, to test the combination therapy in humans.
SANTIAGO， March 23 (Xinhua) -- Chilean miners on Thursday ended a strike that paralyzed operations at the world's largest copper mine for 43 days.
The miners accepted a deal "to extend the current collective contract for 18 months，" the regional daily Cooperativa said， adding the decision was seen as "a victory" by the union despite a failure to secure a wage increase.
Union leader Patricio Tapia hailed the decision for strengthening the collective contract and for calling for a new round of negotiations starting "on June 1， 2018 under the norms of the labor reform，" which will include both existing and new workers and be based on the current contract terms.
Tapia called the strike "the most important union struggle in recent decades."
The more than month-long strike led to losses of some 700 million U.S. dollars at La Escondida mine in the northern Antofagasta region.
Company president Marcelo Castillo described the strike as "damaging to both the workers and the company."
With copper being Chile's No. 1 export， the strike is expected to put a dent in monthly gross domestic product figures.
Miners are expected to be back at work on Saturday， the daily said.
BEIJING， March 2 (Xinhua) -- Having made headlines at the Davos World Economic Forum with his vigorous defense of globalization， Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to take the spotlight in another gathering with global influence: the "two sessions" in Beijing.
The fifth session of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC)， and the fifth session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference， will open on March 5 and March 3， respectively.
The annual sessions of the top legislature and top political advisory body are among the most important political events for the world's second largest economy.
The NPC is the highest body of state power， enabling the Chinese people to exercise their power as "the master of state." New state leaders will be elected at the NPC session in March 2018 after the 19th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress elects a new Party leadership later this year.
It was at the first session of the 12th NPC in March 2013 that Xi was elected president. He had been elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November the previous year at the 18th CPC National Congress.
This year's two sessions are the first since Xi was endorsed as the core of the CPC Central Committee last October.
"Through the meetings， greater consensus will be gathered to build a moderately prosperous society and Xi's thoughts on state governance will be more clear-cut，" said Xin Ming， a professor with the Party School of the CPC Central Committee.
Over the past four years， Xi's governance thoughts have been guiding China's development. The book "Xi Jinping: The Governance of China，" a collection of his speeches， provides insight into his concepts， resolve and wisdom of governance. More than six million copies have been distributed worldwide.
Officials at all levels should align their thinking with Xi's strategic blueprint， the "four compreh.
