    MERS-CoV in South Korea: the Institut Pasteur is supporting the response

    Since May 20, 2015, South Korea has been facing an outbreak of MERS-CoV that began with a traveler who returned from the Middle East. To date (as of June 24, 2015), there have been 179 cases and 27 deaths in Korea. As part of its global health mission, the Institut Pasteur is actively involved in monitoring the development of the outbreak, through its dedicated outbreak investigation taskforce.

    Three Ebola virus variants identified in Guinea

    Sequencing the genome of Ebola virus strains circulating in Guinea has allowed scientists at the Institut Pasteur in Dakar and in Paris, the CNRS and the University of Sydney to retrace the spread of the virus and monitor its evolution in the country where the outbreak started. This research reveals the co-circulation in Guinea, particularly in the urban regions of the capital and neighboring towns, of three distinct variants of the virus whose mutations are described in an article published in Nature.

    Restoring natural immunity against cancers

    Scientists have successfully increased the infiltration of immune cells into tumors, thus inducing the immune system to block tumor growth. They show that, in combination with existing immunotherapies, this process efficiently destroys cancer cells.

    Premature aging: scientists identify and correct defects in diseased cells

    Scientists have succeeded in restoring normal activity in cells isolated from patients with the premature aging disease Cockayne syndrome. They have uncovered the role played in these cells by an enzyme, the HTRA3 protease. This enzyme is overexpressed in Cockayne syndrome patient cells, and leads to mitochondrial defects, which in turn play a crucial role in the appearance of symptoms leading to aging in affected children.

    Viagra to prevent transmission of the malaria parasite?

    By increasing the stiffness of erythrocytes infected by the causal agent of malaria, Viagra favors their elimination from the blood circulation and may therefore reduce transmission of the parasite from humans to mosquitoes. This astonishing discovery could lead to a treatment to reduce the spread of malaria within a population.
