Project context and summary :

This project is integrated in the analysis of the gut ecosystem of children implicated in the AFRIBIOTA project, a translational project performed within a consortium of researchers and medical doctors from the Central African Republic, Madagascar, France and Canada (see AFRIBIOTA aims at understanding the risk factors and pathophysiological changes underlying chronic child malnutrition as manifested through delayed growth. Within the project submitted, we aim at assessing a possible link between asymptomatic pathogen carriage, gut inflammation and stunted growth of children included in the study site in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
