Zika virus RNA [Presence] in Urine by NAA with probe detection
This term is used to report the presence of Zika virus RNA in urine. For assays that target the Zika virus envelope (E) gene, use [LOINC: 81149-7]. This term was created for , but is not limited in use to, the Altona RealStar Zika virus PCR assay.

LP200137-0 Zika virus
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a flavivirus transmitted primarily by the Aedes mosquito which was first identified in a sentinel monkey in the Zika forest in Uganda in 1947. Since 2014 it has spread explosively in the Americas where it has infected hundreds of thousands of people. About 80% of those infected are asymptomatic. Common symptoms include fever, headache, rash, arthralgia and conjunctivitis. Since the end of 2015, there has been an increase in ZIKV-associated cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome and a tremendous increase in cases of microcephaly in fetuses and newborns in Brazil, raising worldwide public health concern. Recent predictions are that the mosquito species A. Albopictus, which can hibernate and survive cool temperatures, will carry ZIKV to more temperate areas of North America, Australia and Southern Europe. It is still not clear whether ZIKV in humans increases viral titers enough to trigger a new cycle when an infected person is bitten by a naïve mosquito. Direct human-to-human transmission has been documented to occur perinatally, sexually (primarily through semen), through breastfeeding, blood transfusion and through occupational transmission in the laboratory setting. There are currently no specific anti-viral agents, vaccination or medical prophylaxis available. [PMID: 27148186] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
LP203271-4 Zika virus RNA
Zika virus contains an inner nucleocapsid composed of RNA and multiple copies of the viral capsid (C) protein. The outer host contains 180 copies each of two proteins: the viral membrane (M) protein and the envelope (E) protein (Kostyuchenko et al., 2016; Sirohi et al., 2016). Viral RNA of the Zika virus has been identified in the brain and liver of fetuses and in the brain, eyes, spleen, liver and placenta of pregnant mothers, with the highest viral load existing in the placenta.(Adams Waldorf et al., 2016).
