With Experimental Zika Virus Vaccines In Human Clinical Trials, Scientists Wonder Whether Market Will Exist When Shots Approved

“…[D]espite funding delays from a fractious pre-election Congress, three experimental Zika vaccines are already being tested in people; another four or five should start human trials between now and next fall. … Let’s be clear: That is warp speed for vaccine development, especially in a case, such as this, where the race commenced from a standing start. But will there be a market for a Zika vaccine when the work is done? That question hangs over this work…” (Branswell, 12/5).
