NOVOSIBIRSK, December 2. /TASS/. Experts of a research laboratory of Novosibirsk State University, who study problems of microbiology and methods of anti-virus therapy, are hoping to create a vaccine against Ebola-related diseases, Deputy rector of the Novosibirsk university in charge of scientific research Sergey Netesov told TASS on Tuesday.
"The university laboratory will not experiment with the Ebola virus itself; they are planning to create the vaccine, using the replica of Ebola's DNA genes, which is safe for the laboratory staff and its environment," Netesov said.
"The researchers are planning to implant the genes of the EBOLA virus into the structure of the adenovirus which causes virus-related diseases transmitted by air. The hoped result is getting a certain adenovirus culture which will be tested as anti-Ebola vaccine," Netesov said.
Problems of financing the research have been negotiated. It might take two-three years to develop the right virus culture, he added.
The research laboratory was created at Novosibirsk State University in spring 2014 on funds provided by the Russian government as grants for scientific research.
