Read the section on JPM-MCS:

In 2010, Tekmira signed a $140-million contract with the DoD to advance an RNAi therapeutic, which utilized our LNP technology, to treat Ebola virus infection. In 2013, the collaboration was expanded to include significant advances in LNP formulation technology, including a new LNP formulation that was more potent, the ability to be able to lyophilize (freeze-dry) LNP formulations and an LNP formulation that can be administered subcutaneously. In January 2014, Tekmira commenced TKM-Ebola Phase I clinical trial.

TRANSLATION: 

Tekmira and the DoD have a shitload of money tied-up in a joint-venture project that started 4 years ago. At this point, the "product" is "just about ready" to go to market. What they need, is a 'hook' that guarantees good sales numbers for the product. 

A TINY fraction of the Earth's population has been killed by Ebola...it gets serious when the death toll is north of a million.

Except the aid workers were given a drug by a different drug maker -
The drug is Z-Mapp named after the company -
AND last week the US military dumped a shitliad of cash in their laps when the Z-Mapp drug bypassed the other drug tekmira -
AND we probably assume that since the US military is developing a serum that the is military bad guys are Weaponizing the Ebola virus.

The first sentence.

 

This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers (see here and here) and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.

No Sierra Leone doesn't think so, that's not what their Facebook page says at all. As to the other "thing" - I addressed that earlier-

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-04/25-critical-facts-about-ebola-o...

Hopefully it wasn't written by someone who can't call the BSL3 Kenema Lassa Fever Laboratory at KGH by its proper name... Yes, the dots can be connected that way, but pointillism is not analysis, and everything I've actually read so far is the former.

...

It's not that complicated.

MOST of the recent speculation can be directly traced to this blog post and (intentionally? incendiary) misnaming of the facility as the "Kenema bioweapons lab" The post is littered with false information, ignorance of basic practices in West Africa, spurious conclusions, and assumptions for which there is not only no evidence, but there is actually contradictory evidence. None of which means foul-play isn't possible, but it is difficult to take anyone seriously who would base their thesis on such trash. Hence, the use of the misnomer is a red flag for identifying either intentional disinformation distribution or an inexcusably sloppy foundation.

What USAMRIID was doing with re-testing the samples of hemorrhagic fever going back to 2006 for ebola is publicly available information.

The research into Lassa fever and a Lassa fever vaccine at the level 3 facility is also publicly available information.

The expansion of research for diagnostic and vaccine products from Lassa-specific to broader spectrum hemorrhagic fever is also publicly available information.

Speculation that can be readily explained by what is already known and well documented is not evidence of anything.

However, what else persons at the facility might have been doing remains unknown. But, if the actual development of a more readily transmissible strain of ebola was being conducted in a BSL3 facility, there would likely be a string of dead bodies before the outbreak began 200 km away. It is possible to speculate that that a more appropriate facility such as the USAMRIID lab at Fort Detrick might have sent something to KLFL at KGH, and that something either escaped and traveled 200km before infecting anyone, or (even more remotely) that someone at KLFL intentionally took something 200km, but there is no evidence of this.

"According to first author James Pettitt of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), the research team previously demonstrated that the treatment—known as MB-003—protected 100 percent of non-human primates when given one hour after Ebola exposure. Two-thirds of the animals were protected when treated 48 hours after exposure...According to the scientists, Ebola virus replicates quickly to very high levels, thus overwhelming the host’s ability to fight off the infection. MB-003 is a “cocktail” of monoclonal antibodies that help bind to and inactivate the virus. In addition, said Pettitt, the antibodies recognize infected cells and trigger the immune system to kill them off. No side effects of the antibodies were observed in the surviving animals."

Once again, Dave Hodges knocks it out of the park:  In San Diego, in October  31, 2012, DHS ran a Zombie preparedness drill and of all things the drill centered around shooting “crazed zombies”.

More scare tactics.

.

from WHO: 'Influenza occurs globally with an annual attack rate estimated at 5%–10% in adults and 20%–30% in children. Illnesses can result in hospitalization and death mainly among high-risk groups (the very young, elderly or chronically ill). Worldwide, these annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 250 000 to 500 000 deaths.'

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs211/en/

So, whats the more real concern - Ebola or Influenza? Ebola? - Why? Because you hemorrhage and suffer a terrible death?

Choking and dying from your own phelgm doesnt sound any better...

The flu can get very deadly under the right conditions.  The 1918 Spanish flu is one such example.  One thing that could help Ebola spread far and wide is a mutation that makes it a lot less deadly.

Flu is more common but less leathal. So with Ebola, this strain at least, you might have 3 million cases but the mortality rate will be 50-60%. So, it will be 1.5 million dead. You will be begging for the flu. 

 

So you say, but it's not as transmissable. Well tell that to Dr. Brantly and the doctors in Lagos. What if these experts are getting it because it has increased it transmissablity?

Blotto: This is an example of what I mean about increased transmissablity. The conventional thinking is you must be in very intimate contact to acquire the EVD. However sharing a taxi would/should not be considered intimate. Something seems to have changed. Check it out:

http://crofsblogs.typepad.com/h5n1/

 

The Grand Bassa County Superintendent pointed out that the victim came in contact with a lady identified as Sonnie from Lofa County who was also sick and later died from the virus after been tested and confirmed positive. 

"He helped the lady to board a taxi cab which they both rode to Buchanan and she headed onward to Monrovia. He later got sick in Rivercess for about 5-6 days (off and on) and has been buying drugs from the nearby drug store in Rivercess," she added. 

In a statement, the Acting Community Health Department Director Steven Joans said the man who was later identified as a Prison Superintendent from Rivercess County left for Monrovia on Wednesday to attend a workshop on correction. 

He pointed out that while attending the workshop he got very ill and decided to go back to Rivercess County but when he arrived in Buchanan the sickness got very serious so he made a stop at one of his friend's residence who is believed to be one of the ROTC instructors at the Grand Bassa Community College teaching ROTC.

At this rate, you'll have 30K death people in 6 months from now, 500K in a year and 3 million in 18 months.

 

And there's also 1 missing. A patient underway to Hamburg died from Ebola and in Kinshasha there are also people showing the symptoms.

 

I've been reading some blogs since 2007 where the virus has spread nonstop since now and it seems to have already over 30 variants, all requiring different medicine.

This mutation shit seems to change it with every different host it passes like monkeys, bats, pigs and even birds.

My broker at JT Marlin told me Farrow Tech received fast track approval. Tekmira should as well.

SETH: I also have a bullet on it. A couple of days ago Dan Dorfman, on CNBC, put a heavy buy recommendation on Farrow Tech. Reason being, he's been in contact with the CEO of the company and they feel FDA approval will happen in the next three or four weeks.

That is all complete bullshit.  I earn my living developing and registering drugs for approval at the FDA and I can say unequivocally that Fast Track Approval does not shorten the path to approval from the FDA but rather requires them to agree in writing that if you conduct X clinical trials and obtain the Y list of efficacious results without Serious Adverse Side Effects we will give you approval with label claim Z to market and sell your drug in the USA.  So in effect the process is veiwed as being quicker because you can simultaneously schedule back to back to back clinical trials without having to wait for blinded study data break and review from the FDA to move onto the next trial. The burn rate and timeline is up to the drug developer.   It saves about 12 months on average, but it doesn't NOT GUARANTEE approval by the FDA.  The statistics for percentage approval of fast track applications vs "traditional" New Drug Approval routes are insignificant.

The only exception to this is that the FDA may grant use of this MB treatment during a pandemic.  It is however all hype and smoke and mirrors for the sheep, because if this is a monoclonal antibody therapy it is physically impossible to scale in time because there are not enough cell master banks available to scale.  Also, scale up of these therapies are notoriously difficult and unlikely to meet potential demand in the near future.  This MB drug is at ground zero.  They do not even know if the "therapy" can be reliably shipped without decompostion.  And the list goes on that could kill this drug.  I choose to hunker down and avoid people until the real problem is known during the next 30-60 days.

Tekmira Provides Update on TKM-Ebola Phase I Clinical Hold All Other Clinical Development Programs On Track

 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation (Nasdaq:TKMR) (TSX:TKM), a leading developer of RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics, today announced an update on the TKM-Ebola Phase I clinical hold. The Company has received the clinical hold letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is preparing a Complete Response to the Agency. The Company anticipates this matter will be resolved by Q4, 2014.

I wonder how the inevitable pressure on the relevant decision making authorities at FDA will (or perhaps already has) affect the status of the hold.

""Also, officials at a hospital in New York city said a man admitted to the facility Monday morning showing symptoms commonly associated with Ebola likely does not have the disease. He had traveled recently to West Africa, but a senior doctor at Mt. Sinai hospital told reporters the "odds are" his ailment is not linked to the deadly virus."""

I would like to know why they think he "does not have it" I am sure it is just all guess work due to odds.  But the coincindences can not be ignored.

Careful, guys, everyone from here on out who has a fever and came from Africa does not "have it". There was a quote from a hospital administrator in NYC stating that this man's fever cleared after one day.  

There are so many feverish bugs you can catch in Africa, if we are all going to go nuts every time someone catches one, well, we'll go nuts.  There is a reason why doctors ask if you have travelled to south america/africa when you have feverish symptoms -- because it is a common occurance.   

Hell, garden variety influenza kills thousands every year. Lets not join in the mania every time someone coughs.  (Not to say I'm not watching and waiting for confirmed news on those who were on Sawyer's plane, etc, but lets pay attention to what is NEWS and what is just speculative fear.) Ebola is a real threat.  But we are going to see a lot of cry wolf stories and false alarms in the news in coming weeks.  We will likely see some real, genuine cases that scare the shit out of us.  But its the scare the shit out of us part that is dangerous, moreso than the disease.

Sounds like Saudi Arabia has at least one victim and if it is this advanced he probably spread it as well.

Sheep don't have great hearing. So when they are bringing Ebola patients here, it's all the press talks about. That raises the "Baaaaaaaa" level. Then there's the immigration problem at the border. Lots more "baaaaaaaa" . Global warming, more "baaaaaaaaaaa:  Gay rights, "baaaaaaa"   Obamacare, "baaaaaaa"  Pretty soon the sheep can't hear the grunts and growls coming from the wolves sculking around the perimeter quietly changing the reserve status of the US dollar and their licking of chops over bail ins and MyRa's. It's all about "Baaaaaa"

The overall amount of social conditioning for this type if event is too great for all of this to be a coincidence.

The movies and TV shows. Everything post apocalyptic. The Last Ship, bringing Planet of the Apes back. The big hit The Strain has a pathogen that even looks like the Ebola virus. The outbreak starts on a plane, the victims become vampire zombies. The outbreak was even planned by a secret group. 

Ebola itself truly seems to be a bio-weapon that somehow leaked out in the 1970s. Like bats carrying plague that were to be dropped on the US during WWII.

One could say it seems like the final solution is ready to be put in action. 1% of the population already took 90% of the wealth. They probably already all have the "experimental" Ebola drug. What they needed was to test the drug in a real world scenario. That just happened. So now the 1% can plunder without fear and allow the virus to do its job.

I love how you all just ignore the fact that the U.S. doctors were cured. I know it ruins the "we're all gonna die" narrative, but let's be real here. This virus sucks and I wouldn't get within 1000 miles of Africa, but it will be a footnote next in 3 months.

Are they cured? Suspect is the doctor walking from the ambulance amidst one of the most horrible virii the world has seen. Even Dr Sanjay Gupta thought it was weird. My wife thought it was weird. He was either a decoy, or they told him to walk to allay fears. I find him walking from the ambulance extremely suspect.

If there was ever any doubts that bringing these people back to the U.S was all about the money, remove them. Let's face it, nobody gives a shit about a few poor Africans who can't afford to pay for the cure, but get a couple Americans, make it a high profile issue, and suddenly people worldwide will be willing to pay for the vaccine.

Given the "good" news that there may be a tobacco based cure, one has to wonder what the kicker is. Could it possibly be that one has to continue to consume the tobacco-based drug for the rest of their lives to ensure that they remain Ebola free.

... and so the tobacco industry profits from this apparently man-made disease ... "how convenient", lol... and the rich can afford the treatments?

I'm on the fence with this new to the west contagion. It  seems like more of a test to gage the reaction of a virulent virus on the populace. With the CDC letting viruses get out recently and finding them left around in zip loc bags and such. I have a bad feeling that a really nasty bug is waiting on the cusp for just the right moment. They have been fear mongering for quite a while with H1N1 and Asiatic flu, Bird Flu and the like. The shots for Shingles and several other diseaeses are currently available every where. They are just seeing how many they can get to take these vaccines and get a figure for about how many will go get them. Then, a new contagious and deadly disease is brought about and big pharma makes a big pay day. It's all disinformation and slight of hand. Thinning the herd of sheeple is an added benfit. When the new Plague hits, it will be terrible to the people and a money maker for the ones who know.

The companies making Ebola treatments were practically penny stocks not that long ago, not exactly big pharma. I would suspect, in this particular case, an investment bank or hedge fund over a big pharma company. Someone who bought in years ago.
