To Whom It May Concern,

     I am currently writing a research paper on the Ebola virus and it
would be greatly appreciated if you could answer the questions at the
end of this e-mail.  I am sorry for this inconvenience.  Thank you for
your time.

What are the antibodies that try to protect and what are the
antibodies that actually do protect the human to some extent? (from
further infection?)

To what extent do each these antibodies protect? 

Why is it that abs are so ineffective in protecting the host?

Do you believe that glycoproteins have a part in neutralizing the
antibodies so that the antibodies will not function properly?

Do you believe that antibodies may enhance infectivity? (please

P.S. please answer as many of these questions as your time permits. 
Thank you.
