    Malaria: a mutation counteracts resistance to chloroquine

    Since 1995, chloroquine is no longer used in French Guiana to treat P. falciparum malaria as it became resistant. The Institut Pasteur in French Guiana described for the first time, a reversal of this resistance in the parasite due to the acquisition of a new mutation. Published in the scientific journal PNAS, this finding is significant in optimizing the use and design of antimalarial drugs.

    World Sepsis Day: fighting deadly infections

    On September 11, the Institut Pasteur will host a conference for World Sepsis Day (WSD). Sepsis is a condition triggered by a serious infection (usually bacterial but occasionally fungal, viral or parasitic) that attacks the body's vital functions. Despite modern medical advances in vaccinations, antibiotics and intensive care, there is still a high death rate among sepsis victims. Septicemia is a form of sepsis caused by the presence of pathogens in the bloodstream.

    The ISG15 protein plays a key role in fighting bacterial infections

    Researchers from the Institut Pasteur, Inserm, INRA and the University of Freiburg have uncovered the key role played by the protein ISG15 in the fight against bacterial infections.
