The Zika virus migrated from the mother's bloodstream and into the placenta, where it multiplied and spread into the fetal circulation before infecting the brains of fetuses in mouse models of the disease.
Researchers have genetically engineered a clone of the Zika virus strain. They believe the development could expedite research of the disease.
A new study reports pseudoscientific claims and conspiracies spread through social networks refuting facts about the Zika virus and potential vaccines could potentially be putting the most vulnerable people at risk.
A new study reports babies born to moms who suffered from viral infections, even mild ones, while pregnant are at increased risk of brain abnormalities.
A new study reports on how Zika directly affects the fetal brain during development and also evades detection by the immune system.
Researchers have completes a second round of studies on a promising vaccine for Zika virus.
