Hi Rebecca,
Thank you for your interesting question. I uploaded a while ago, the article about 8N8 nano-emulsion. This nano-emulsion seems to have a great impact in different bacteria spores ( they are very difficult to destroy), encapsulated viruses and even some fungi. Taking into account the encouragements from Openideo we submitted the work to USAID for further evaluation. I agree with you that this procedure maybe very efficient to Ebola as well as other deadly viruses or bacteria. Hoping for the best ! I will keep you updated if interested.
Thanks

Very good point. You are right without the cell is difficult to replicate, but possible on contact with the porous material, if you are thinking of the high survival rate of these viruses. In addition the emulsion can have an impact on the capsid. if we are for example taking the nanoemulsion 8N8,that i am talking about in the other idea, then the capsid is more likely destroyed. the other constituent genistein in this case will have the second effect by inhibiting the intron I RNA as the literature says http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16780372
I may say that both ideas are interrelated.

The cream will highly favor the entrance of the virus in the circulation, unless is a coated like cream product.

Hello again
Very good questions. Actually I will add more information to this idea. The salt concentration will be around 4M which is high concentration for sodium chloride or potassium chloride. The second question will arise in this particular case is : would the inhibitors of tryptophanase still work? Very hard to say because they will be transformed in suitable salts. Therefore I was turning again and search and I found that actually there is a nanoemulsion called 8N8 which have a high destructive features for bacteria spores, protective coated viruses and fungi. Thus I will be changing the salt with this nanoemulsion which is very protective for the skin. Moreover, I will write about the actual material which will be PLA with PGA ( polyglutamic acid). This will be happening soon.
