COCA Call—Zika Update: Findings from the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry and Updated Clinical Guidance

Overview:

CDC recently released its latest findings from the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry (USZPR) on Zika virus infection in pregnant women and infants, which highlight the importance of prevention and early care. Additionally, CDC has released additional considerations for evaluating and managing infants with possible congenital Zika virus infection.

Zika virus infection during pregnancy is a cause of microcephaly and other serious brain defects; however, the full range of potential health problems that Zika virus infection during pregnancy may cause is not yet known. Healthcare providers need information to appropriately evaluate and manage patients with possible Zika virus infection.

During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about the latest findings from the USZPR and updated CDC clinical guidance to assist in caring for these patients based on currently available data.
