Dear Sir,

Ebola virus infection is still an important viral disease that causes a high fatality.[1] The important consideration on this deadly disease is whether there is any effect on the cell that can further cause long-term abnormal cell function. In fact, many viruses are confirmed as etiologies of cancers. Here, the authors use in silico analysis technique for prediction of carcinogenicity of Ebola virus (the tool uses technique namely “Prediction of Activity Spectra for Substances.”[2] Here, there is no predicted carcinogenicity in both cancer cell line and nontumor cell line models. There, there should be no carcinogenicity due to Ebola disease.
