That's a nice twist indeed.
Carlos Garcia Pando's comment, October 31, 2014 5:25 AM
I think entanglement is a consequence of two simple universes perfectly matching in one particle. What we see is not two entangled particles but one particle that belongs to two very close universes. Close in a different sense, not spatial proximity as we know it, but close enough to share at least one particle in all its observable attributes but space position.

Rapid and durable protection against Ebola virus with new experimental ChAd3 Ebola vaccine

Rapid and durable protection against Ebola virus with new experimental ChAd3 Ebola vaccine | Vloasis sci-tech | Scoop.it

One shot of an experimental vaccine made from two Ebola virus gene segments incorporated into a chimpanzee cold virus vector (called chimp adenovirus type 3 or ChAd3) protected all four macaque monkeys exposed to high levels of Ebola virus 5 weeks after inoculation, report National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists and their collaborators.

 

The ability of the ChAd3 Ebola virus vaccine to elicit rapid protection in monkeys is notable as the world health community battles an ongoing Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa. While the protective effects of the single shot waned over time, two out of four inoculated animals were protected when challenged with Ebola virus 10 months after vaccination.
