Zika virus found inside spermatozoa

Recent work has shown that Zika virus persists in semen for up to 6 months after infection[1]. In a correspondence published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, the researchers, in addition to confirming its long persistence in semen (in this case for more than 130 days, i.e., over 4 months), reveal the presence of the virus even within spermatozoa. This work results from collaboration between researchers from Inserm, CNRS, and academic practitioners from University Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier and Toulouse University Hospital.

A new way to combat viruses

The team “Physiopathology and therapeutics of chronic viral hepatitis and related cancers” of the Mondor Institute of Biomedical Research (Inserm/UPEC), located on the premises of Henri Mondor Hospital AP-HP, in collaboration with the researchers of the Centre for Structural Biochemistry (CNRS/Inserm/Montpellier University), with the support of ANRS, has created a whole new family of molecules that inhibit cyclophilins – proteins indispensable to cell metabolism – and have strong therapeutic potential as broad-spectrum antiviral drugs. This discovery, published in Nature Communications on 22 September 2016, also opens the possibility of using these new inhibitors to protect cells in the context of ischaemia-reperfusion (organ transplants, recovery after ischaemic accidents, or neurodegenerative diseases).

Accidents domestiques : dans quelles pièces court-on le plus de risque ?

Pour la première fois, l’observatoire MAVIE, coordonné par Emmanuel Lagarde, directeur de recherche à l’Inserm et chercheur à l’Unité 1219 «Bordeaux population health research center» (Inserm/Université de Bordeaux), en partenariat avec Calyxis, permet de mesurer le temps passé par des volontaires dans chacune des pièces de leur habitat, et donc d’estimer précisément leur risque d’accident domestique. L’étude nationale, véritable outil de prévention des risques d’accident de la vie courante, forte de la participation de ses premiers 26 000 volontaires (sur les 100 000 attendus) livre ces premiers résultats inédits.
