Maternal Dengue Immunity Protects Against Fetal Damage in Mice Following Zika Virus Infection

La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology

A mouse mother's prior dengue immunity would protects her unborn pups from devastating brain defects such as microencephaly associated with ZIKV. These findings could guide development of more effective flavivirus vaccines and hint at what types of immune responses are maximally protective against fetal brain damage after Zika invasion.
