Effective Antibody Against Dengue And Zika Virus Infection Identified

Dengue virus antibody has been found to be effective against Zika virus as well when tested on mice, according to a recent study by scientists from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. This antibody could be potentially used to protect pregnant women and their fetuses from Zika infection, especially in areas hard hit by both dengue and Zika virus infections caused by related viruses and in fact spread by the same species of mosquito.
