Like Zika, West Nile Virus Causes Fetal Brain Damage, Death in Mice

Washington University in St. Louis

Two viruses closely related to Zika – West Nile and Powassan – can spread from an infected pregnant mouse to her fetuses, causing brain damage and fetal death, according to a new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The findings suggest that Zika may not be unique in its ability to cause miscarriages and birth defects.

Pre-Existing Immunity to Dengue and West Nile Viruses May Cause Increased Risk in Zika-Infected

Their study, published in the journal Science, may help explain the severe manifestations of Zika virus infection observed in specific populations, including those in South America.
