Study on the Persistence of Zika Virus (ZIKV) in Body Fluids of Patients With ZIKV Infection in Brazil

The Zika infection is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans by the same mosquito that transmits Dengue and Chikungunya fever. The Zika virus has been found in various body fluids s...

Dermatologic Manifestations of Zika Virus

The purpose of this study is to determine whether any diagnostic patterns exist in the symptom presentation of Zika Virus.

Study in Healthy Volunteers Evaluating Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Zika Virus Immune Globulin (ZIKV-IG)

Currently, there are no licensed therapeutics against Zika virus infection. Due to this unmet medical need, Zika Virus Immune Globulin (ZIKV-IG) is being developed as a therapeutic interve...

Phase I, Open-label, Dose-ranging Study of GLS-5700 in Healthy Volunteers

The clinical trial will assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of GLS-5700. GLS-5700 is a synthetic DNA plasmid vaccine against the Zika virus. ZIKA-001 is the first in man cl...

Study of GLS-5700 in Dengue Virus Seropositive Adults

The clinical trial will assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of GLS-5700. GLS-5700 is a synthetic DNA plasmid vaccine against the Zika virus. This is a Phase 1 clinical tria...

Dengue virus not detected in human semen.

Zika and Ebola viruses can persist in semen and pose a risk for sexual transmission. To determine if dengue virus, another flavivirus, is similarly detectable in semen, we performed dengue PCR on seme...

Duration of Infectious Zika Virus in Semen and Serum.

Zika virus (ZIKV) has recently caused a large epidemic in the Americas associated with birth defects. Although ZIKV is primarily transmitted by Aedes spp. mosquitoes, ZIKV RNA is detectable in blood a...

Zika Virus Shedding in Semen of Symptomatic Infected Men.

Zika virus (ZIKV) is an emerging mosquito-borne flavivirus that has been linked to adverse birth outcomes. Previous reports have shown that person-to-person transmission can occur by means of sexual c...

Use of Urea Wash ELISA to Distinguish Zika and Dengue Virus Infections.

Serologic testing remains crucial for Zika virus diagnosis. We found that urea wash in a Zika virus nonstructural protein 1 IgG ELISA distinguishes secondary dengue virus infection from Zika virus inf...

Update: Interim Guidance for Preconception Counseling and Prevention of Sexual Transmission of Zika Virus for Men with Possible Zika Virus Exposure - United States, August 2018.

Zika virus infection can occur as a result of mosquitoborne or sexual transmission of the virus. Infection during pregnancy is a cause of fetal brain abnormalities and other serious birth defects (1,2...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An arbovirus in the FLAVIVIRUS genus of the family FLAVIVIRIDAE. Originally isolated in the Zika Forest of UGANDA it has been introduced to Asia and the Americas.

A viral disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with ZIKA VIRUS. Its mild DENGUE-like symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and ARTHRALGIA. The viral infection during pregnancy, however, may be associated with other neurological and autoimmune complications (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME; and MICROCEPHALY).

The quality of SEMEN, an indicator of male fertility, can be determined by semen volume, pH, sperm concentration (SPERM COUNT), total sperm number, sperm viability, sperm vigor (SPERM MOTILITY), normal sperm morphology, ACROSOME integrity, and the concentration of WHITE BLOOD CELLS.

A condition characterized by the complete absence of SEMEN. This disorder should be differentiated from AZOOSPERMIA, absence of sperm in the semen.

The process by which semen is kept viable outside of the organism from which it was derived (i.e., kept from decay by means of a chemical agent, cooling, or a fluid substitute that mimics the natural state within the organism).
