Meet Charles Arntzen, creator of world’s most promising anti-Ebola drug from tobacco plants

Bioengineered plants meet vaccines. It actually is a lot more promising than it may sound. A pioneer in the field is Arizona State University Professor Charles Arntzen. He has been working on nothing less than the world’s most promising anti-Ebola drug. ZMapp is an injectable synthetic serum made of genetically engineered antibodies grown in tobacco plants. The technology could be used to combat other infectious diseases and lower the cost of expensive drugs used to fight cancer, HIV, and other chronic health conditions. The story of Pr. Arntzen and his Ebola project reads like a thriller script. We hope you enjoy it as we have.
