A new study in mice suggests that Zika infection may have worrisome consequences for men that interfere with their ability to have
children. The research indicates that the virus targets the male reproductive system. Three weeks after male mice were infected with Zika, their testicles had shrunk, levels of their sex hormones had dropped, and their fertility was reduced. In this video, co-senior authors Michael Diamond, MD, PhD, and Kelle Moley, MD, discuss their research.
