HIG to treat Zika virus during pregnancy

The PI of this project was: Dawn Dudley, PhD

This project was funded by: NIH

The term of this project was: February 2018 to January 2019

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 8

In this study we will test a treatment for Zika virus in pregnant rhesus macaques. Ultrasounds will be used to determine whether the treatment reduces or prevents fetal growth restriction and improves placental health during the course of pregnancy relative to a placebo control group. Ultrasounds will also be used to monitor the health of the fetuses throughout gestation since our previous research has found an increased risk for fetal demise following Zika virus infection during pregnancy in macaques.
