    The Institut Pasteur Announces an Alliance with IntegraGen to Strengthen its High-Throughput Sequencing Activities in Microbiology

    As a result of partnership agreement, IntegraGen will be the main operator of high-throughput sequencing activities for the French National Reference Center (NRC) and microbiological collections at the Institut Pasteur. High-throughput sequencing will be the reference tool for analysis, surveillance and diagnostic activities associated with the above in line with the public health mission of the Institute.

    Chambéry babies – Official recognition of the new bacterium identified by the Institut Pasteur, Rouxiella chamberiensis

    Following the death of three newborns at Chambéry hospital (France) in December 2013, scientists at the Institut Pasteur quickly drew connections to a previously unknown bacterium responsible for the contamination of parenteral nutrition bags. Today, these scientists are publishing an article to announce the official recognition and complete characterization of this bacterium, which belongs to an entirely new genus. In homage to Emile Roux, a close collaborator of Louis Pasteur and head of the Institut Pasteur from 1904 to 1933, the bacterium was named Rouxiella chamberiensis. All of the data obtained through the sequencing and characterization of this bacterium have been made available to the wider scientific and medical community.

    Ebola: Study of the chains of transmission in Conakry

    Researchers at the Institut Pasteur of Dakar and the Institut Pasteur in Paris have reconstructed chains of transmission of Ebola virus in the capital city of Guinea, from February to August 2014. The data show the positive impact of control measures on the evolution of the epidemic but highlight the challenges of Ebola control in large urban centres.

    The biological basis of good health

    In a biological sense, what does it mean to be “in good health”? This far-reaching question is the focus of the “Laboratoire d'Excellence” project Milieu Intérieur (“Environment Within”). The Milieu Intérieur cohort is the first French cohort of its kind, comprised of a thousand healthy donors. Studying this cohort will help define the parameters of a healthy immune system. The recent analysis of the initial results generated from the cohort represents an important milestone for the scientists in this consortium.

    Identification of an Achilles heel in the dengue virus gives new hope for vaccine development

    Scientists have identified a vulnerable site on the surface of the dengue virus which is targeted by the only broadly neutralizing antibodies identified to date. This discovery offers a new target for the development of a vaccine to combat all four types of dengue virus currently in circulation.

    Malaria: formal identification of the artemisinin resistance gene

    Together with teams from Columbia University (USA), CNRS in Toulouse and NIH/NIAID (USA), Institut Pasteur scientists based in Paris and Cambodia have recently provided the key demonstration that K13 is indeed the main determinant of artemisinin resistance in Plasmodium falciparum parasites. This work is a landmark for the scientific community, as it provides a validated molecular marker for artemisinin resistance, which currently poses a major public health problem. This work is published in the journal Science.
