Fighting Antibiotic Resistance
Antibiotics are highly efficient drugs to kill pathogenic bacteria with low side effects. For more than 70 years, the massive use of these miracle drugs has saved millions of human and animal lives. Unfortunately […]
PTR2020-353 ZOOFOAMENV – Host pathogens interactions in humans infected with zoonotic foamy viruses
General context : Foamy viruses (FV) are the oldest retroviruses, described as largely nonpathogenic in their natural animal hosts. Simian foamy viruses (SFVs) can be transmitted to humans, where they establish persistent infection akin […]
Pasteur International Center for Research on Emerging Infectious Diseases
We established an Emerging Infectious Disease Research Center in Southeast Asia and West/Central Africa with an inter-continental one-health approach designed to improve the capacity to respond rapidly and effectively to outbreaks. We built on […]
The European Virus Archive Goes Global
EVA-GLOBAL objective is to generate the largest accessible collection of human, animal and plant viruses in the world and move beyond the current state-of-the-art to provide an increasingly valuable resource and service to the […]
The ANRS 12225-Pediacam study is coordinated by Mr. Tejiokem at the Center Pasteur in Cameroon. Since 2007, the project has included children exposed or infected with HIV-1 and a group of unexposed and uninfected […]
PTR 161 – EVinCA&M: Epidemiology and Genetic Diversity of Enteroviruses in Central Africa and in Madagascar
ACIP 162 – AnEiCA: Animal Enteroviruses in Central Africa
Le projet EBO-SURSY est financé par l’Union Européenne (UE) à hauteur de 8 millions d’euros. Il a été lancé le 15 janvier 2017 dans 10 pays prioritaires pour une période de 5 ans. […]
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, […]
A multi-disciplinary study of human beings, great apes, and viral emergence in equatorial Africa (SHAPES)
This multi-disciplinary study examines the changing nature and contexts of human contact with great apes and monkeys in equatorial Africa and the health consequences of that contact. Biomedical researchers have scrutinized the nature of […]
REEMFOAMY : Human infection with zoonotic simian foamy retroviruses: role of virological and immunological factors in restricting viral emergence
The public health relevance of retroviruses of zoonotic origin is illustrated by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic, the worldwide distribution of human T-lymphotropic viruses (HTLVs), and the morbidity and mortality associated with both […]
Epidemiology of Buruli ulcer in Cameroon
Funding: ANR, Fondation Raoul Follereau, Fondation SANOFI Espoir. In this new research program, we will conduct for the first time the simultaneous collection of environmental (plants and insects) and human samples in two […]
Alerting and Surveillance for Infectious Disease Epidemics
In a context of increasing globalization of trade, the growth in international flows of travelers and goods fuels the spread of infectious diseases. The need for a global alert and response network for infectious diseases […]
