Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites.
The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes).
The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon.

In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infection in Brazil.
The outbreak in Brazil led to reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome and pregnant women giving birth to babies with birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes.


Has begun a program to develop a vaccine for the prevention of Zika virus infections using its novel MVA-VLP vaccine platform


The unfortunate emergence of the Zika Virus epidemic in Brazil and other countries has created serious issues for infected women who may become pregnant.  Women who are infected may give birth to children with brain deformities.  As a result women in Brazil and other countries have been advised not to become pregnant.  The female condom is an excellent product to prevent pregnancy during this epidemic.  

we will be starting the development of a vaccine for Chikungunya and have started to investigate Zika


Auramedi Farmacêutica, Ltd., has announced its intention to invest up to BRL$25 Million (USD$ 6 Million) to establish facilities for the manufacture, distribution and sale of Premier Biomedical drugs and other treatments in Brazil and South America. Premier is working, with Auramedi's support, on investigations to apply Premier’s extracorporeal technology toward finding a cure for the Zika and Dengue viruses.


New diagnostic tests currently being developed include chikungunya and Zika Virus
