  Saphire has published a call www.crowdrise.com/CureEbola website with the goal of raising $ 100,000 (about 78,630 euros) to buy equipment that would allow researchers to analyze quickly the antibodies of the blood samples of patients who have survived the virus.

    So far, the campaign has raised about $ 13,000 (about 10,200 euros) in the three days has been active on the web, as it has picked up the British news agency Reuters.

    Ollman Saphire is a professor at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, which was established with a fund of 28 million dollars (about 22 million) awarded by the National Institutes of Health.

    The immunologist has detailed the laboratory samples are coming from all over the world, surpassing the team´s ability to process them. "We are in a race against Ebola," he said through its call Internet.

    The ZMapp is a mixture of three antibodies designed to bind proteins of Ebola, preventing replication and triggering an immune response by the infected cells.

    The compound was tested in monkeys before being applied directly to health Writebol Kent and Nancy Brantly, who overcame the disease, although it is unclear whether the compound was useful during the process.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday raised to 4,003 the number of people who have died from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

    The country with the highest number of victims remains Liberia, where 2,316 people have died infected with the virus. In Guinea, have killed 778 patients, while in Liberia the figure rises to 930, counting both probable and confirmed cases.

    The WHO list also includes dead in Nigeria (eight) and the United States, where this week passed a Liberian who had developed symptoms after reaching Texas. Senegal has a unique case, like Spain, which comes first in the balance.

    The Spanish case is the nursing assistant Teresa Romero, who contracted the virus while treating one of the patients repatriated missionaries. For WHO, is "alarming" level of infection among healthcare workers, since 233 have died from the disease.
