    About This Project

    OncoSynergy, Inc.
    The Ebola outbreak in west Africa has been declared a global emergency by the WHO with over 1,000 victims and no approved therapies. OncoSynergy is developing a readily manufactured experimental cancer drug, OS2966, which coincidentally targets the receptor hijacked by ebola to infect cells. This project aims to demonstrate that OS2966 inhibits ebola infection of human cells thus providing the impetus for expediting OS2966 for treatment of ebola.
