Developing Zika vaccines

The lessons for disease X

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

There is an urgent need to develop vaccines against emerging diseases, including those caused by pathogens that are currently unknown to cause human disease, termed 'disease X'. Here, Zika virus infection is considered as an example of disease X. The speed of Zika vaccine development provides optimism for our ability to prepare vaccines against unknown pathogens.
