ANSES signs a partnership agreement with Ouest Valorisation TTO to add value to its research results

The Ouest Valorisation TTO and ANSES are signing a partnership agreement today. Its goals are to add value to the research results produced by ANSES's laboratories in the Brittany and Pays de la Loire Regions and develop innovation stemming from their work.

A new test to better detect pathogenic E. coli in food

Escherichia coli (E. coli ) is a bacterium found in the digestive tract of humans, other mammals and birds. Although the majority of E. coli strains are harmless, some of them can cause serious cases of diarrhoea and even, less often, death. ANSES has developed a faster and more targeted method for detecting pathogenic E. coli in food, in particular in raw milk products.

End of the Innotub project on bovine tuberculosis

The first project of the Innotub research network on tuberculosis in animals, in which ANSES took part, came to an end on 31 May 2022. It aimed to improve the monitoring and control of this disease in cattle and wildlife.

Plant protection: spotting the Japanese beetle's arrival in France as early as possible

The Japanese beetle has already been in Italy and Switzerland for several years, and there is a high probability that it will enter France. This insect pest poses a threat to hundreds of plant species. To have any chance of eradicating it from our country, action must be taken as soon as the insect is first detected.

Colistin combined with nanoparticles: a smaller amount of antibiotic for the same level of efficacy

Scientists from ANSES's Ploufragan-Plouzané-Niort Laboratory took part in a study on the efficacy of colistin-loaded alginate nanoparticles used to treat diarrhoea in piglets. Undertaken in collaboration with teams from University of Lille (BioEcoAgro Cross-Border Joint Research Unit) and CNRS (Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics & Nanotechnology), this study showed that this new formulation, which requires less colistin than conventional treatment, has equal or even greater efficacy.

Aiming for weather maps of ticks in metropolitan France

As part of the national plan to combat Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, INRAE and VetAgro Sup, as well as CIRAD, ANSES and the company Boehringer Ingelheim, analysed the risks associated with the tick Ixodes ricinus , the main pathogen vector in France and Europe. The research team used data collected in seven observatories characterised by various climates in metropolitan France; it also referred to meteorological and environmental (vegetation, soil, etc.) data. This was supplemented by additional field observation campaigns. The results, published in Geospatial Health and Scientific Reports, led to the development of a map indicating those areas most favourable to the presence and activity of Ixodes ricinus ticks, on the one hand, and a model for predicting the periods of greatest risk depending on the season and weather in metropolitan France, on the other.

Tracing the source of infections by the bacterium responsible for bovine tuberculosis

Cases of bovine tuberculosis are rare in France, but infected cattle herds are still regularly reported. In order to determine the exact role of wildlife, especially badgers, in transmission, scientists from the Laboratory for Animal Health have been reconstructing the evolution of the bacterium that causes the disease.

Equine health at the heart of a new joint technology unit

The French Horse and Riding Institute (IFCE) and ANSES have set up a joint technology unit (UMT) to strengthen their shared research on horse health. Its work will focus on three main areas: an equine census and monitoring of mortality, several risks associated with parasites and pathogens in the horse environment, and infectious diseases affecting reproduction.

TIQUoJARDIN is looking for volunteers to collect ticks from the gardens around Nancy

When they bite, ticks can transmit pathogens such as the bacterium responsible for Lyme disease. Although this risk is usually associated with forests, many bites also occur in gardens. The TIQUoJARDIN project is seeking to better understand the associated risks, and to do this it relies on the participation of as many people as possible. After a first campaign in 2021, the scientific team is once again calling on the inhabitants of Nancy and its surroundings to collect ticks in their gardens from 1 May to 10 July 2022.
