Zika virus (ZIKV) has recently emerged as a pandemic associated with severe neuropathology in newborns and adults. There are no ZIKV-specific treatments or preventatives. Therefore, the development of a safe and effective vaccine is a high priority. Messenger RNA (mRNA) has emerged as a versatile an Zika virus: An emerging flavivirus Zika virus (ZIKV) is a previously little-known flavivirus clo-sely related to Japanese encephalitis, West Nile, dengue, and yellow fever viruses, all of which are primarily transmitted by blood-sucking mosquitoes. Since its discovery in Uganda in 1947, ZIKV has continued to expand its geographic range The number of Zika virus cases, and the number of infants born with disabilities linked to the virus, were dramatically lower during the first few months of 2017, as compared to same period in 2016 Zika virus (ZIKV; pronounced / ˈ z iː k ə / or / ˈ z ɪ k ə /) is a member of the virus family Flaviviridae. It is spread by daytime-active Aedes mosquitoes, such as A. aegypti and A. albopictus. Its name comes from the Ziika Forest of Uganda, where the virus was first isolated in 1947. Zika virus shares a genus with the dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile viruses In 2017, it was estimated that over 120 million people in Brazil were at risk of Zika virus infections, compared to 32 million people in Mexico and 29.5 million in Columbia
- 8 - OVERVIEW OF THE . SITUATION This Zika Strategic Response Plan - Revised for July 2016 to December 2017, comprised of the Strategic Response Framework and Joint Operations Plan, has been developed to guide the international response and joint actions against Zika virus infection, its complications and consequences If you are looking for simplified information about zika virus , this video is what you are looking for.This video answers the top five questions about zika. In approximately one in five cases, Zika virus infections result in Zika fever, a minor illness that causes symptoms such as fever and a rash. Prior to the outbreak, Zika was considered a mild infection, as most infections are asymptomatic, making it difficult to determine precise estimates of the number of cases 1. Zika Virus Emergence and Spread in Brazil. Zika virus (ZIKV) infection is an acute exanthematous disease transmitted by the same vectors as some of the most significant arthropod-borne viral diseases in the world, including dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever .The virus circulated silently in Africa and Asia for over half a century with few records describing the clinical presentations.
The Zika virus is thought to be unique in its ability to destroy GSCs and not other neural cells. Another flavivirus, the West Nile virus, indiscriminately killed both tumor and normal neural cells when tested. Zika depleted patient-derived GSCs grown both in vitro and in organoids Zika virus (ZIKV) infection has been recognised since 1947, but just recently it became a worldwide major public health problem. The most common features of ZIKV infection are fever, cutaneous rash, arthralgia and conjunctivitis but most affected patients with the clinical disease present with only mild symptoms

The following is a summary of the epidemiological situation by sub-regions ZIKA virus (ZIKV) poses a severe threat to the world. Recent outbreaks of ZIKV after 2007 along with its quick transmission have made this virus a matter of international concern. The virus shows symptoms that are similar to those caused in the wake of dengue virus (DENV) and other flaviviruses, which makes it difficult to discern the viral infection Review www.thelancet.com Vol 390 November 4, 2017 2099 An update on Zika virus infection David Baud, Duane J Gubler, Bruno Schaub, Marion C Lanteri, Didier Musso The epidemic history of Zika virus began in 2007, with its emergence in Yap Island in the western Pacific, followed i borne cases of Zika virus infection 12 months after the outbreak OR Countries or territories where Zika virus has been circulating for several years with consistent presence of laboratory confirmed, autochthonous, mosquito-borne cases of Zika virus infection or evidence of local mosquito-borne Zika infections in 2016 or 2017

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne pathogen that recently caused a major epidemic in the Americas. Although the majority of ZIKV infections are asymptomatic, the virus has been associated with birth defects in fetuses and newborns of infected mothers as well as neurological complications in adults. We performed a descriptive analysis on approximately 106,000 suspected and laboratory. While both viruses infect multiple organs, Zika appears to cause neurological disease in the fetus through two different mechanisms. Infection during the first trimester showed the potential to infect neural progenitor cells causing severe developmental abnormalities, while infection later in gestation was associated with meningeal infection and destructive ischemic lesions of the brain

Zika virus (ZIKV) was identified in 1947 from a Rhesus monkey in the Zika Forest of Uganda (Dick, 1952, Dick et al., 1952).Historically, ZIKV circulated between Aedes species mosquitoes and non-human primates and episodically spilled into human populations in parts of Africa and Asia. Prior to 2010, ZIKV Infection was described as a self-limiting febrile illness with headache.
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a single-stranded RNA arbovirus within the Flavivirus genus .Zika has been reported in many tropical and sub-tropical regions, where other Aedes mosquito-transmitted viruses also circulate including Dengue, Chikungunya and yellow fever viruses .ZIKV was first isolated in 1947 from a sentinel rhesus monkey in Uganda Zika virus (ZIKV) was recently recognized to be teratogenic. The diagnosis of congenital ZIKV syndrome should be considered in children with unexplained microcephaly, intracranial calcifications, ventriculomegaly or major structural central nervous system abnormalities. Management is evolving but suggestions are provided for children with findings compatible with congenital infection and for.

Controlling mosquitoes at hom Edited by Alan Hastings, University of California, Davis, CA, and approved March 30, 2017 (received for review December 8, 2016) We use a data-driven global stochastic epidemic model to ana-lyze the spread of the Zika virus (ZIKV) in the Americas. The model has high spatial and temporal resolution and integrate Zika testing: Scientists have struggled to develop accurate and reliable Zika diagnostic tests. Part of the problem is the virus itself: Zika remains in the blood for only the first few days after infection, and if you don't test during that window (called the viremic stage), you can't be completely sure that a positive result is truly positive Researchers from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School estimate that the social and economic impacts of the recent Zika virus outbreak in Latin America and the Caribbean could cost countries in the region an estimated $7 billion to $18 billion from 2015 to 2017. Their findings are included in a new report titled A Socio-economic impact.
