MITICA: Identifying the mechanisms of acquisition of a dysbiotic microbiota and pediatric environmental enteropathy in infants in the context of chronic malnutrition
Undernutrition contributes to more than 40% of the global child mortality rate. In 2014 stunting, which is the main manifestation of chronic undernutrition, affected 159 million children. Stunting entails long-term repercussions for the child, […]
Phylogenomics of Shiga’s epidemic dysentery bacillus (Shigella dysenteriae type 1)
The agent of epidemic dysentery, the bacterium Shigella dysenteriae type 1, was isolated in Japan in 1897 by Dr Kyoshi Shiga during a massive epidemic of bloody diarrhea that caused 20,000 deaths over a […]
Enterovirus A 71 (EV-A71) is an emerging pathogen that is circulating worldwide and mostly causes hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in children. However, in many cases, EV-A71 causes neurological complications, such as meningitis, […]
