Could Zika Virus Be Useful For Health?

A new research published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine said yes.
The study, which was co-directed by three doctors suggested that it could be useful because of the tendency of the zika virus to target and destroy neural progenitor cells – which are brain cells that differentiate into neurons and glua cells in the central nervous system.
Its action, in this way, points to the reason why a zika-infected pregnant women give birth to microcephalic babies.
The research director said, “since its able to destroy progenitor cells, it might be able to kill glioblastoma cells.”
The team tested their hypothesis by injecting a modified zika virus  into a specimen taken from a brain tumor.
To their dismay, they found that it killed the gluoblastoma stem cells, which are the undifferentiated cells that promote the development of glioblastoma, a firm of brain cancer.
