  • Patent number: 10898566
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a vaccine for Zika virus, the vaccine comprising Zika virus membrane and envelope proteins. More specifically, the vaccine comprises nucleic acid molecules encoding modified Zika virus membrane and/or envelope proteins. When introduced into a cell, the encoded proteins are produced, which results in the production of a virus-like particle capable of eliciting an immune response against Zika virus.
    Type: Grant
