Protective monotherapy against lethal Ebola virus infection by a potently neutralizing antibody.

Science, 351, 1339-1342, 2016.

The cited paper was immediately followed in the same issue of Science by: John Misasi, Morgan A. Gilman, Masaru Kanekiyo et al, "Structural and molecular basis for Ebola virus neutralization by protective human antibodies," Science, 351, 1343-1346. This paper illustrates crystal structures at 2Å resolution of the Ebola viral epitopes that are being recognized and targeted by monoclonal antibodies from a particular human survivor of the 1995 Kikwit (Congo) Ebola outbreak, who happened to mount an unusual and very robust and potent immune response.
