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 https://research.pasteur.fr/fr/program_project/the-afribiota-project/). 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.Related team publications :
