    Agreement between The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and the Institut Pasteur on the project: “Malnutrition and infections childhood in Africa”

     

    The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development (MAEDI) and the Institut Pasteur signed in July 2014 a grant agreement for the project: “Malnutrition and infections childhood in Africa” (MALINEA) in the framework of the Priority Solidarity Fund of the MAEDI. This project will be carried out through a partnership which brings together the know-how and the skills of the Institut Pasteur International Network in Africa – the Institut Pasteur of Madagascar, the CERMES (Niger), the Institut Pasteur of Bangui and the Institut Pasteur of Dakar -, and the NGOs Action against Hunger (Spain and France) and the GRET.

    The main objective is to evaluate interactions between malnutrition and modification of the gut microbiota, and to propose new strategies of renutrition, in order to improve the care of malnourished children.  This three-year project will be implemented in Madagascar, Niger, Central African Republic and Senegal. In this framework, a first working meeting was held on 8 and 9 September at the Institut Pasteur in Paris with 25 representatives of the different organizations and partner countries. This first project is the seed for a lasting partnership between the Institut Pasteur International Network and these two NGOs.

    Agreement between the University of Oxford and the Institut Pasteur

     

    The University of Oxford and the Institut Pasteur have signed in August 2014, an agreement for an international collaboration concerning the project “The Global Health Network”.

    The Global Health Network is a project that is based within the University of Oxford. It is a not-for-profit network which consists of individual health initiatives and corresponding online communities connected by a shared digital home, which helps advance research by providing open access to a wide range of free online seminars and courses, downloadable training kits, articles, templates and tools. The University of Oxford and the Institut Pasteur will collaborate to produce, host and manage on-line training resources dedicated to the research of infectious diseases in low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).

    Thanks to this agreement scientists and researchers from Institut Pasteur and Institut Pasteur International Network can upload their courses, training material and tools on the platform.

    Highly regulated therapeutic target shows promise in the search for new antimalarial treatments

    Artemisinin is currently the most effective malarial treatment available. However, the recent emergence in South-East Asia of artemisinin-resistant parasites strengthens the urgent need to identify a new generation of antimalarial drugs. In this context, scientists have determined the three-dimensional structure of a promising new therapeutic target for malaria: SUB1.

    Autism: SHANK gene may indicate the severity of the disorder

    Thanks to a large-scale study conducted on nearly 1,000 autistic patients, scientists succeeded in mapping the clinical incidence and impact of certain genetic mutations linked to the cognitive and intellectual abilities of the patients. Mutations affecting the SHANK3 gene were shown to coincide with the most severe cases of autism and are associated with 1 out of 50 children with autism and intellectual deficits.

    Mental states control the integration of new neurons in the adult brain

    Although it has been known for several years that the adult brain is capable of producing new neurons, how these neurons are integrated into existing, functional nerve circuits has hitherto remained a mystery. Scientists have just shown that new neurons set up a denser network of connections with the rest of the brain in contexts of active (as opposed to passive) motivation and learning.

    The Institut Pasteur steps up its action against Ebola

    Ever since the Ebola virus was identified in Guinea in March 2014, the designated WHO Collaborating Centers within the Institut Pasteur and Institut Pasteur International Network have been assisting the international aid initiative via diagnostic support and epidemiological surveillance. Now, faced with the seriousness and spread of the epidemic, the Institut Pasteur and Institut Pasteur International Network are strengthening and coordinating their efforts in order to effectively fight the disease.

  • Potential strategies for limiting the hepatitis C epidemic in Egypt

    Press release | 28.08.2014

    Potential strategies for limiting the hepatitis C epidemic in Egypt

    In the fight against hepatitis C, directing preventive and curative interventions towards sufferers of chronic diseases requiring regular medical care would be an effective means of reducing transmission of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in Egypt, and undoubtedly also in other countries with limited resources. This theory has arisen from a mathematical modeling study carried out as part of the ANRS 1211 study, conducted jointly by scientists at the Institut Pasteur, the CNAM and their fellow scientists in Egypt.

    A new mechanism of gene regulation in Listeria

    How do bacteria perceive their environment? How do they find and detect nutrients? How do they eat? In an article published in the journal Science, researchers reveal a new system of gene regulation in Listeria monocytogenes, the bacteria in food and responsible for listeriosis.
