    Defense mechanism against HIV-1 revealed

    Scientists have discovered how some of these restriction factors inhibit HIV replication in lymphocytes. These proteins belong to the IFITM (interferon-induced transmembrane proteins) family; they are broad-spectrum antiviral proteins that act on a wide range of viruses including influenza, dengue, etc. Little was previously known about their effect on HIV-1.

    A better understanding of the intestinal immunity

    The innate lymphoid cells contribute to immune defense by maintaining the integrity of the intestinal barrier. ILC are made in the bone marrow but must find their way to the gut mucosa where they perform their function. Scientists have discovered how this migration process is regulated.

    The Institut Pasteur in Shanghai, created jointly in 2004 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Shanghai Municipality and the Institut Pasteur in Paris, celebrated its 10th anniversary and the fiftieth anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China during the scientific symposium focused on Research on infectious diseases in a globalized world organized in October 17th, 2014.

    For this occasion, Chinese and French politicians and scientists, such as Pr. Francoise Barre-Sinoussi, 2008 Nobel Prize, met on the prestigious campus of the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences to discuss about research in infectious disease in the era of globalization. The three sessions (i) epidemiology and public health (ii) research and (iii)  prevention & therapies, have allowed to review the current state of research for diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis or hand-foot-mouth viral disease, as well as current and future therapies to better understand the associated public health issues.

    A bioinformatics tool to monitor the resistance and virulence of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria

    By sequencing the genomes of several strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae, scientists have revealed their genetic profile and pinpointed the genes responsible for their multiple antibiotic resistance and virulence. They have used these results to compile a database for the scientific community, providing high-resolution genetic fingerprints and information on genes of medical importance. This should make it easier to monitor Klebsiella pneumoniae outbreaks.
