Replikins changes in the structure of virus genes represent mutations correlated with rapid replication of the virus.
Obtained by daily quantitative automated software analysis of all Zika specimens gene sequences on PubMed, rising Replikin Counts one year before the outbreak and continuing with no marked drop are associated with and predict further outbreaks and spread of Zika, as in the case of over 3 million sequence analyses to date for 41 outbreaks by 16 other viruses (1-2). The sudden cessation of the Ebola 2014 outbreak was predicted by a sudden drop in the Gene Replikin Count of Ebola (3).
With significant virus gene mutations, previous vaccine formulations may be outdated and less effective. The company (4) has incorporated up-to-date mutation changes in its current Replikins vaccine-blocker candidate formulations.
For 1) up to date mutation information in a given geographic area to be performed by Replikins Surveillance Service™, and 2) based on 1), 'made to measure' Replikins Synthetic Zika Vaccine™ candidates manufactured in 7 days for delivery freeze-dried.
