A new mouse model, that closely mimics fetal brain abnormalities cause by the Zika virus, may help researchers better understand how the infection affects different cells in the developing brain.
A new study could help explain why children born to mothers infected by Zika are more likely to have microcephaly.
Researchers report they have been able to successfully document the abnormal brain development of a fetus following the mother contracting Zika virus during pregnancy.
Compounds shown to be either effective at stopping the replication of Zika in its tracks or preventing the virus from killing brain cells.
Researchers have published a spectrum of imaging findings in babies and fetuses infected with the Zika virus.
