Abstract

Three recent studies in pregnant mice and one ongoing study in rhesus macaques evaluating the effect of ZIKV infection have provided important information about maternal-fetus transmission and ZIKV-related pathogenesis, confirming a causal role of ZIKV in neurological problems observed in humans. Here, we present an update of these works published in the past few weeks.
