Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Transmission of Zika virus from a mother to an infant results in a spectrum of mild to severe deficits. Using a rhesus macaque model, the impact of Zika on gait development was examined using the Noldus Catwalk XT. Infants exposed to the Zika virus in utero, compared to control animals, used a less mature gait over the first month of life, specifically related to their use of diagonal walking patterns.
