U.S. launches early trial of Zika vaccine - UPI.com
UPI reports: "A potential vaccine for the Zika virus has entered early clinical
trials to assess its safety in humans, U.S. health officials announced
The DNA-based vaccine contains genetic pieces of the Zika virus. It is
intended to promote an immune response that would protect against the
mosquito-borne virus that can cause devastating birth defects, according
to a statement from the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Diseases (NIAID)."
Comment: I'm so happy to share some good news for a change! With any luck the vaccine will be a success and we won't have to worry about Zika anymore...or at least until the anti-vaxxers act up.
