“Zika virus can directly kill neural cells as well as alter their differentiation pathway, making the fetal brain smaller by the end of pregnancy,” said senior researcher Dr. Amilcar Tanuri. By Dennis Thompson. HealthDay Reporter. MONDAY, Oct.

3, 2016 (HealthDay News) A new study shows that Zika virus causes so much varied damage throughout the fetal brain that researchers are suggesting the term “congenital Zika syndrome” be used to describe the numerous birth defects. Microcephaly an underdeveloped skull and brain is the hallmark birth defect caused by Zika, which. “Zika virus can directly kill neural cells as well as alter their differentiation pathway, making the fetal brain smaller by the end of pregnancy,” said senior researcher Dr.

Amilcar Tanuri. Microcephaly—an underdeveloped skull and brain—is the hallmark birth defect caused by Zika, which is mainly transmitted by mosquito bite. But the study of 11 Zika-infected infants in Brazil—the epicenter of the Zika epidemic—found that microcephaly is. “Zika virus can directly kill neural cells as well as alter their differentiation pathway, making the fetal brain smaller by the end of pregnancy,” said senior researcher Dr.

Researchers are suggesting the term “congenital Zika syndrome” to describe many birth disabilities in the fetal brain, according to a new study.

A particular trait caused by Zika is microcephaly, which is an underdeveloped brain and skull. Researchers studied 11 Zika-infected babies in Brazil, which is the epicenter of the epidemic. A study has found that viruses related to Zika, such as West Nile, can cross the placenta in mice and cause fetal brain damage and death.

Two viruses closely related to Zika – West Nile and Powassan – can spread from an infected pregnant mouse to her fetuses, causing brain damage and fetal death, according to a new study from Washington. One of the frightening side-effects of Zika virus infection in pregnant women is the risk of fetal microcephaly, in which babies are born with abnormally small brains. The multidisciplinary collaboration of Yale scientists revealed that Zika virus kills stem cells in the brain and disrupts the process of creating brain cells.

A fetus that was aborted weeks after the mother was infected with Zika provides striking evidence that the virus causes fetal brain abnormalities, researchers say.

  • How could you live like that, that is inhumane to let someone live like that!! Genetically modified mosquitoes, are the cause, this is chemical warfare, this is the government’s weapon releases on the public!!! This is apart of agenda 21, apart of REX84!!! Treatment should be death!! It’s inhumane to live like that!!!
