A single injection of our Ebola vaccine provided 100% protection for mice exposed to Ebola virus. By relying on T-cells rather than antibodies, FlowVax Ebola provides long lasting protection through enhanced immune targeting and surveillance of the hidden Ebola virus nucleocapsid protein. FLOVID-20 targets the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the same way.
FlowVax Ebola creates T-Cells that attack a specific segment of the “Nucleocapsid protein” (NP44-52) of Ebola, identified by the red arrow in the picture.

What is Ebola?
Ebola, also known as Ebola virus disease (EVD) or Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), is a viral hemorrhagic fever of humans and other primates caused by ebolaviruses.
