Dr. Mobeen Rathore, an infectious disease specialist, said it's too early to say the total impact of the medication.
“This is an important first step, but there are many more to come before we are able to say which drug is going to be effective against Zika virus infection,” Rathore said.
The drugs appear to fight Zika in animals but work still needs to be done to find out if the same results will be found in humans.
"Don’t forget, this is just what we’ve seen in the lab," Rathore said.
"Right now we're working in mice to see if we can also have these drugs work as well," Lee said. "Once we see that, we're going to move into additional animal models, and then eventually into people."
The Florida Department of Health announced one new non-travel related case of Zika on Monday. It was reported from the Zika “hot-spot” in Miami.
There are now more than 600 cases of Zika in the state of Florida.
