Giant fullerene system inhibits the infection by an artificial Ebola virus

Using an artificial Ebola virus model, a medical researchers have demonstrated how a supermolecule -- constituted by 13 fullerenes -- has been able of inhibiting the virus infection by blocking a receptor implied in its expansion. The model, tested in vitro, highlights the potential of this biotechnology to eradicate the infection.
