Scientists Ask If Ebola Could Be Silently Immunizing Some People While Killing Others

Scientists Ask If Ebola Could Be Silently Immunizing Some People While Killing Others – http://huff.to/15OVfB5

Actually it raises another issue, because those who don’t catch it while developing antibodies don’t seem to be affected at all.

It’s a really binary thing, no reaction or critical illness.  It’s not a continuum.

That suggests a knockout, something you either have or don’t.

Two areas that jump to mind, genetics, a defence like the sickle cell gene against malaria, or an exposure to a chemically similar illness, such as how cow pox gives immunity to smallpox.  Something where you hav it or you don’t. 

Whatever that is, it isn’t magic, it has a physical basis. 

I’d start by getting DNA tests and complete medical histories for those who have antibodies but never developed symptoms.

The answer is there somewhere.
