DNA-based vaccine protects against Zika in animal study - UPI.com
UPI reports: "An experimental Zika vaccine shows promise, researchers report.
In animals infected with Zika virus, the synthetic DNA-based vaccine was
100 percent effective in protecting against infection, brain damage and
death, the study found. [...] More than 2,000 children have been born with microcephaly or birth
defects of the central nervous system in Brazil, the nexus of the Zika
outbreak in South America, according to the World Health Organization. More than 60 countries have reported mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus."
Comment: This is great news, I'm sure a lot of mothers-to-be in the outbreak zones will be relieved to know that a vaccine is in the works.
