Study Finds Zika Virus Destroys Cells Crucial for Fetal Brain Development 2016-03-07 04:37:20 The spread of the Zika virus has spurred public health concerns that it will become the next viral epidemic. Zika May Infect Fetal Brain Cells, Study Finds March 4, 2016 SEAN DUFFY (CN) – Scientists researching the link between the Zika virus and birth defects have discovered that the virus is able to infect cells similar to the ones involved in brain development, according to a study published Friday. Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause severe abnormalities in the fetus, including malformations such as microcephaly.

In a small proportion of cases, the disease. The terrible birth defects caused by Zika virus appear to be the result of an immune system response that triggers prenatal brain cell suicide and obstructs fetal brain development, a new lab study reports. The virus apparently activates an immune receptor called TLR3, Zika, destroys, fetal, brain, cells, birth, detects 678.

Zika can infect adult brain cells, not just fetal cells, study suggests Illumination of the fluorescent biomarker in green reveals that the adult mouse brain could be infected by Zika in a region.

List of related literature:

Studies in mice with immune defects suggest that Zika virus replicates initially in the placenta followed by infection of the fetus, and that viral replication occurs in neural precursor cells, leading to reduced brain size and thinning of the cortex.

  • I’m glad I’m poor in a rich country ��.
    Not rich in a poor country ��

    Probably still got a bit of coronavirus, still it’s not the amount that counts!!
    It’s the taking place ��.

    All part of the Chinese experience ��

    I got RA,

    Thought it was because of the cold weather in uk!!! ������

    How wrong was I!!!

    DEMARDS for me ��

  • Which scientific journal were these discoveries published in? They never mention it. They just want to sway public opinion through innuendos.

  • So the vaccine is more effective on people that have had the virus previously so how do they know it’s not that they have previously had it that is giving protection and not the vaccine

  • Oh god. This has the potential to end the entire human race. It’s fascinating how mother nature finds a way to get rid of the most predatory (and wasteful) species on earth…..HUMANS. These mosquitos have existed for millions of years. I doubt modern science will be able to kill these fuckers. Then it’ll get so bad to the point that no one will be able to reproduce……

  • I can see all the third wave feminist intentionally infecting themselves with zika by flying to Florida and protesting “it’s my right to get Zika, don’t tell us what to do with our body!”

  • Seriously!! We have the mean wipe those fu*#%ing annoying species off of the face of the earth. I get it that some scientists are worried about the eco system but those thing barely add any contribution. I strongly suggest that we just eradicated them

  • Zika is the gift that keeps on giving: funny looking babies, tight vaginas for the moms, and now you can forget all about the lies and evil you did in your past. I nominate Zika for a Nobel Prize.

  • Does anyone find it odd that the insecticide being use directly affects the nervous system in a similar way as Zika? I’m not saying that our government would lie or make up false emergencies in order to take away rights but………
