This fellowship of Indra Wibowo from the Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia, with Wai-Hong Tham from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI), Australia, aimed to identify functional blocking antibodies that inhibit red blood cell binding and ligand-receptor interactions present in individuals in a region of high Malaria transmission in Indonesia. PfRh5 is one of the leading vaccine candidates against blood stage P. falciparum and PfRh4 governs the major invasion pathway independent of glycophorin-mediated entry.

Institute Pasteur Madagascar (IPM) is working with cohorts of EPTB (Extrapulmonary tuberculosis) patients in collaboration with local clinicians to better diagnose EPTB and accelerate diagnosis. IPM is gathering clinical, bacteriological as well immunological data and samples from these patients (clinical extrapulamonary Mtb (mycobacterium tuberculosis) strains, blood samples and other fluids), aiming to increase the Institute immunological investigation capacities in order to propose new options with new tools to diagnose EPTB with an integrated approach (host, pathogen, immune response). At IPM, the human host capacities need to be upgraded to meet with the international standards and increase the capacity to understand the host-pathogen interaction and build tools to fight against EPTB from this interaction. In this project, Paulo Ranaivomanana from IPM and Anna Coussens from WEHI work together to strengthen IPM capacities in assessing the immunological correlates that may be associated with extrapulmonary dissemination of Mtb. Understanding the determinants of Mtb dissemination can be useful to build diagnostic tools for EPTB.

The present invention is related to a viral vaccine against rabies and use of the virus for producing rabiesvirus immunobiologicals. More particularly, the present invention is related to a genetically engineered plasmid vector that has been used to construct a unique vaccinia poxvirus infectious recombinant for expressing in animals or in tissue cultures part or all of the gene for rabiesvirus glycoprotein. Such a recombinant employing vaccinia or other poxviruses, could be used for production of rabies vaccine, live or inactivated, as well as for production of rabiesvirus glycoprotein antigen, antibody or other related biochemical or immunological reagents.

The technology describes an exceptionally broad universe of novel naphthylisoquinoline alkaloid compounds, and methods of total synthesis thereof. These compounds have been shown to have potent in vitro activity against malaria parasites, including parasites that are highly resistant to available antimalarial drugs. These compounds have also been shown to have potent in vivo activity against malaria parasites in animal models. Pharmaceutical compositions comprising these compounds, as well as methods of using the compounds to treat or prevent a malarial infection of a host, are claimed.

The subject technology are novel naphthylisoquinoline alkaloid compounds, and methods of total synthesis thereof. Representative examples of these compounds have been shown to have potent in vitro activity against malaria parasites, including parasites that are highly resistant to available antimalarial drugs. Representative examples have also been shown to have potent in vivo activity against malaria parasites in animal models. Pharmaceutical compositions comprising these compounds, as well as methods of using the compounds to treat or prevent a malarial infection of a host, are claimed. The relative structural simplicity of this class of compounds, and the ready synthetic access thereto, provide unprecedented opportunities for structure-activity relationship (SAR), lead-optimization and antimalarial drug development.
Malaria is endemic in many parts of the world, particularly in tropical regions such as Asia, Central America and South America. Recent estimates of the number of cases of malaria worldwide are between five hundred million and one billion. There are approximately two to three hundred million new cases of malaria each year and malaria causes a minimum of one million deaths each year. This invention relates to the identification and characterization of the binding specificity of BAEBL, a novel Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte binding ligand that interacts with human erythrocytes in a sialic acid dependent manner. This novel Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte binding ligand is unique and quite distinct from previously described Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte binding proteins EBA-175. BAEBL may be used as a malaria vaccine to block human red cell recognition and invasion.
