With the Zika virus cases continuously rising, the perfect cure is yet to be officially recognized by health experts from across the globe. Until Protein Sciences Corp. has recently revealed that the company is currently on the move to be developing a Zika vaccine that has already been doing well in pre-clinical trials and could begin being tested on humans by April. It was found that the drug that is being developed by the Connecticut-based biotech company is known to be reportedly composed of a purified type of protein, which, in turn, has the ability to match one found on the outer surface of the Zika virus.
