More on Zika and fears other virus types could have the same effect as Zika.

Zika may not be the only virus of its kind that can damage a fetus
Tests on pregnant mice show two other flaviviruses also cause deadly harm in the womb.


By Aimee Cunningham, 2:21pm, January 31, 2018

Zika virus may not be the black sheep of the family. Infections with either of two related viruses also cause fetal defects in mice, researchers find.

Some scientists have speculated that Zika’s capacity to harm a fetus might be unique among its kind, perhaps due to a recent change in the virus’s genetic material (SN: 10/28/17, p. 9). Others have argued that perhaps this dangerous ability was always there. It just wasn’t until the 2015–2016 epidemic in the Western Hemisphere that enough pregnant women were affected for public health researchers to identify the association with fetal defects
SN: 12/24/16, p. 19).

But new work suggests this capacity is not Zika’s alone. Pregnant mice infected with West Nile or Powassan virus — both flaviviruses, like Zika — also showed fetal harm. Over 40 percent of these infected fetuses died. But among pregnant mice infected with one of two other mosquito-borne viruses unrelated to Zika, all of the fetuses survived, scientists report online January 31 in Science Translational Medicine.

Zika Linked to a Spike in Birth Defects in the U.S.


By Alexandra Sifferlin January 25, 2018
TIME Health
For more, visit TIME Health.

Areas in the United States where Zika spread locally, like Florida and Texas, experienced a spike in birth defects.

According to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), areas in South Florida, parts of Texas and Puerto Rico saw a 21% increase in birth defects strongly linked with Zika in the last half of 2016, compared to the first part of the year.

CDC experts looked at surveillance data for about 1 million births in 15 U.S. states and territories. They reported that about three out of every 1,000 births that took place in those states in 2016 involved a birth defect that was potentially linked to Zika. About half of those infants were born with microcephaly or brain abnormalities, 20% were born with neural tube defects or other early brain issues, 22% had nervous system damage and 9% had eye problems.

Zika Virus: Everything Pregnant Women Should Know

This mosquito-borne illness can threaten your unborn baby's health. Here's what you need to know about the Zika virus.

Parent Rag.. By Jennifer Kelly Geddes

If you're pregnant—or trying to conceive—the Zika virus is probably a top-of-mind concern right now, and with good reason: This mosquito-borne virus is dominating headlines with its scary advance into the United States and potentially devastating consequences for pregnant women and their babies.

Zika surfaced just over a year ago in South America, and Brazil has been disproportionately affected, with thousands of babies suffering severe birth defects, including brain damage, in utero when their mothers contracted the virus. But it has now spread to more than three dozen countries and territories in the Americas, and has recently landed in the United States, with local transmission taking place in two areas near Miami, Florida, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of September 14, 43 cases of local transmission have been reported. Meanwhile, more than 3,000 cases of travel-related Zika infections have been reported across United States, with 26 of all domestic infections being sexually transmitted. As of September 8, as many as 731 pregnant women show evidence of being infected with Zika in the US and an additional 1,156 pregnant women are infected in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, the CDC reports.
