    Inauguration of a Regional Platform of Research on transmissible and emerging infectious diseases in Southeast Asia (PRR-Asia)

    Southeast Asia (SEA) is affected by emerging infectious diseases, and emerging outbreaks challenge the medical and scientific communities. The emergence of new diseases or their resistance to anti-microbial drugs in SEA is a complex mechanism which requires more interest on the diseases, on the condition of their emergence and on the diffusion of the causative agents. The study of infection transmitted or not by animals or arthropod vectors involves a new interdisciplinary approach with systemic and transversal collaborations between teams and institutions on priority programs integrated into a global health international strategy.

    The implementation of a Regional Platform of Research-Asia (PRR-Asia) in the campus of Institute Pasteur in Cambodia (IPC) will offer a unique opportunity for research teams from the North and the South to share their regional and international expertise and to develop strong partnerships through multi-sectoral research programs complementary to ongoing research on infectious diseases in relation with IPC and its partners.

    Involved from the beginning of Chikungunya's epidemic, the Institut Pasteur in French Guiana, with six International Reference Laboratories in Americas Region, showed the susceptibility of Aedes mosquito against Chikungunya virus and contributed by supplying reagents for carrying out the serology and the development of the real-time PCR. If the first epidemic outbreak was hosted on the French part of the Saint-Martin's island, the Chikungunya virus has spread rapidly in French West Indies, French Guiana and now extends into all Caribbean region. In December 2013, the decision was taken to perform the diagnosis in Guadeloupe in order to reduce response times. The Hospital in Pointe à Pitre supports hospitalized cases and the Institut Pasteur in Guadeloupe performs molecular diagnosis of ambulatory cases and serological diagnosis of all patients.
