UNC-Chapel Hill researchers file patent for Zika virus vaccine


Four researchers at UNC's School of Medicine filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a new Zika virus vaccine. The Zika virus, transmitted primarily by mosquitoes, often comes without symptoms, but can trigger paralysis in some patients and cause birth defects for pregnant women. Currently, no vaccine or specific treatment exists for the virus. (WRAL Tech Wire)
