Scientists have developed a simple-to-apply, needle-free vaccine patch that may protect people from the potentially deadly mosquito-borne Zika Virus.
The experimental vaccine developed by researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia elicited an effective immune response to Zika Virus in mice.
The vaccine, described in the journal Molecular Therapy Nucleic Acids, uses the high-density microarray patch (HD-MAP) patch developed by the University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia for delivery.
