On February 1st, the World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern related to clusters of microephaly cases in some areas affected by the Zika virus. Like the Ebola virus, there had been very little funding and research on Zika until the recent emergency and associated media and scientific attention - there is therefore a dearth of information and there is neither a vaccine nor prophylactic pharmacotherapy available to prevent Zika virus infection.
In response to concern over the effects of Zika virus infection in pregnant women, the medical publishing team at Cambridge University Press commissioned a brief summary of current evidence and recommendations. Just 8 days after the public health emergency was declared, this content has been written, reviewed, edited and released as a freely available resource. The content has been provided by Professor Bernard Gonik, Fann S. Srere Chair of Perinatal Medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine.
Released in advance as a freely accessible public resource, this content is part of High-Risk Pregnancy: Management Options. Like all of the content in High-Risk Pregnancy: Management Options, the Zika section will be regularly updated as new information arises.
