It's also the only FDA-approved haemophilia A medicine that can be self-administered as a shot under the skin, similar to the way someone with diabetes injects insulin. Alternative treatments must be directly infused into a vein, sometimes multiple times per week."

"Rising temperatures through climate change are expected to increase arboviral disease pressure, so understanding the impact of climate change on newly emerging diseases such as Zika is essential to prepare for future outbreaks.
