Well, "the virus's susceptibility" can be expressed as "the virus' susceptibility" and then "the virus susceptibility"?

To make the question more concrete, here we get a title:

The Susceptibility of the Virus to Ethyl Ether

Can we rewrite it as:

The Virus Susceptibility to Ethyl Ether

@oristarA,
Might not s/b “virus’ “ to sidestep the remote probability that all viruses are susceptible

No way out.
So we'd better just use "The Susceptibility of the Virus" there?
