Crossover behavior of the Zika virus infection and the delayed immune response

Zika virus is the twentieth one of the world's most infectious viruses. The compartmental model is based on the interactions of Zika virus infected cells and the short-lived effector cells. WHO recommends delayed pregnancy based on the fetal abnormalities associated with the Zika virus infection. With the help of dynamical analysis of inter-cellular communication, the impact of the Zika virus on the delayed pregnancies is shown.

Therapeutic treatment of Zika virus infection using a brain-penetrating antiviral peptide

Zika virus, a mosquito-borne virus, is associated with neurodegenerative diseases, including Guillain-Barru00e9 syndrome 1 and congenital Zika syndrome 2 in the United States. As Zika virus affects the nervous system, there is a strong need to develop antibiotic products that inhibit Zika virus infection in the brain. We reviewed the peptide's therapeutic value in a lethal Zika virus mouse model with systemic and brain infection. Our results show how engineering methods can be used to produce peptide therapeutics and aid the potential of a brain-penetrating peptide to treat neurotropic viral infections.
