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 […]
EVinCA&M: Epidemiology and Genetic Diversity of Enteroviruses in Central Africa and in Madagascar
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, […]
The European Virus Archive Goes Global
The European Virus Archive now goes global and become EVAg as a continuation of EVA within the Horizon 2020 programme . The new EVAg consortium (25 institution from 19 countries, EU and non-EU ) […]
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 […]
