Now, a new study reports a possible link between Zika and an autoimmune disorder known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Now, a new study reports a possible link between Zika and an autoimmune disorder known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). In this disease, the immune system attacks the coating (myelin) around nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord, much like multiple sclerosis.

Now, a new study reports a possible link between Zika and an autoimmune disorder known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Zika has already been linked with the autoimmune disorder Guillain-Barre that causes swelling in the brain and spinal cord that damages the myelin, a white protective coating that surrounds never. The mosquito-borne virus is already suspected of causing a birth defect called microcephaly characterized by an abnormally small head and brain and a nervous system disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome. Now, a new study reports a possible link between Zika and an autoimmune disorder known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).

Existing research and case studies suggest the Zika virus is linked to GBS. There is also a strong body of research suggesting the virus can also cause microcephaly, a condition in which a baby has. Now, according to a small study being released Monday at the American Academy of Neurology’s 68th annual meeting in Vancouver, Canada, scientists say Zika may also cause an autoimmune syndrome called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).

The Zika virus, they say, closely resembles some infectious agents that have been linked to the development of autism, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Schizophrenia and other debilitating. Previous research has suggested that the mosquito-transmitted Zika virus also appears to be linked to microcephaly, a birth defect that causes babies to be born with unusually small heads and.

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.

  • The volume needs to be up on this. You’re speaking into microphones and I still cant hear you. My volume is up as loud as it can be.

  • Don’t belive anything they say, before anything new gets used for today it will take 17 years. Thats how long it takes for something new to get used and the heatl care updated to that new technique. Capitalism don’t let them.
