ABSTRACT

Zika Virus Vaccines and Therapeutics   [open pdf - 36KB]

This is a 45-minute presentation on the Zika virus. "Zika virus is a rapidly emerging infectious disease of great public health importance. Although infections are frequently asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic, associations with severe neurologic complications in infants born to mothers infected with Zika virus during pregnancy as well as neurologic complications in adults (e.g., Guillan Barre Syndrome) have made Zika virus a high priority pathogen. At the time of the lecture, there were no licensed vaccines or therapeutics against Zika virus; however, there were numerous vaccine candidates in development. The anti-Zika virus vaccine candidates in the pipeline as well as ongoing efforts to identify therapeutics effective against this pathogen were discussed."
