Data shows that Anc80-AAV, an in silico-designed synthetic gene therapy vector, has the potential to provide superior gene expression levels in retina, liver, muscle, cochlea's outer hair cells and other tissue targets in preclinical studies, as well as reduced cross-reactivity as compared to naturally occurring adeno-associated viral vectors (AAVs) that are currently in clinical development.
The extent to which these immunoassays exhibit cross-reactivity to B-type natriuretic peptides as well as with their glycosylated and nonglycosylated forms is an important question to elucidate, as this may affect the clinical performance of the assays with implications for patient care.

Current techniques, such as immunoassays, typically have difficulties distinguishing between closely related Prunus species as they suffer from cross-reactivity.
Serologic cross-reactivity between these arboviruses is common; thus, to ensure optimal patient care and accurate epidemiologic surveillance, an effective differential diagnosis is required in regions with active transmission of dengue virus and circulation of Zika virus (2-4).
