Preclinical trials carried out as part of a CEA-Irig–CEA-Jacob partnership have shown that a spike-protein-based candidate vaccine provides complete protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Researchers from IRCM furnish initial information on the mechanisms regulating DNA double-strand break repair in yeast heterochromatin. Sir3 plays an essential role in the choice of a repair pathway.
An international team with researchers from the CEA (Genoscope, CEA-Jacob) has produced a dataset of the deep ocean floor and compared it to the other oceanic realms at a worldwide scale. The results, published in the in Science Advances, show that the deep oceanic floor is home to a mostly unknown biodiversity largely superior to that of plankton.
In a study published in Viruses, a team of researchers from SRHI and the University of Ferrara (Italy) showed that the soluble form of HLA-G may contribute significant anti-inflammatory properties via its role in controlling the adhesion of neutrophils to endothelial cells and thus improve disease outcome in patients with COVID-19.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
