One of the Indian Ocean Islands off the southeast coast of Africa. Its capital is Antananarivo. It was formerly called the Malagasy Republic. Discovered by the Portuguese in 1500, its history has been tied predominantly to the French, becoming a French protectorate in 1882, a French colony in 1896, and a territory within the French union in 1946. The Malagasy Republic was established in the French Community in 1958 but it achieved independence in 1960. Its name was changed to Madagascar in 1975.

Wild poliovirus circulation among healthy children immunized with oral polio vaccine in Antananarivo, Madagascar. (1/380)

From July 1995 to December 1996, 3185 stool specimens from healthy children aged 6-59 months attending 6 dispensaries in the Antananarivo area were examined for poliovirus. The children had been routinely immunized according to the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) schedule and received the last dose of oral polio vaccine (OPV) more than 1 month before stool collection. 99.4% of the children were immunized with at least 3 doses of OPV. HEp-2 cell culture revealed virus infections in 192 stools (6.0%), including 9 poliovirus (0.3%) and 183 nonpolio enterovirus isolates (5.7%). Infections occurred throughout the year, but incidence was higher during the hot and rainy season (P=0.01). Using a neutralization test with monoclonal antibodies and PCR-RFLP in two genomic regions coding for the VP1 capsid and RNA polymerase, 4 wild polioviruses (3 type 1 and 1 type 3) and 5 vaccine-related polioviruses (2 Sabin 1-like variants, 1 Sabin 2-like and 2 Sabin 3-like) strains were identified. The wild polioviruses were isolated at the beginning and the end of the dry season. Similar RFLP patterns were observed for the 3 wild type 1 polioviruses. Comparison of partial genomic sequences in the VP1/2 A region of 1 of the wild type 1 isolates with 2 wild type strains isolated in Antananarivo in 1992 and 1993 showed a divergence of at least 10% between the strains, suggesting at least two different pathways of transmission during this period. Our findings demonstrate that immunization with 3 doses of OPV did not prevent intestinal carriage of wild poliovirus strains, and that there is a risk of wild poliovirus transmission to susceptible children in the area. Multiple strategies are required to improve immunization coverage in Madagascar.  (+info)

High amounts of genetic differentiation between populations of the malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis from West Africa and eastern outer islands. (2/380)

Polymorphism at nine microsatellite loci was examined to assess the level of genetic differentiation between four Anopheles arabiensis populations from Senegal, the high plateau of Madagascar, and Reunion and Mauritius islands. Eight of nine loci showed great polymorphism (2-16 alleles/locus) and significant genetic differentiation was revealed between all four populations by F- and R-statistics, with Fst estimates ranging from 0.080 to 0.215 and equivalent Rst values ranging between 0.022 and 0.300. These high amounts of genetic differentiation are discussed in relation to geographic distance including large bodies of water, and history of mosquito settlement, and insecticide use on the islands. The results suggest that historical events of drift rather than mutation are probably the forces generating genetic divergence between these populations, with homogenization of the gene pool by migration being drastically restricted across the ocean.  (+info)

Chancroid, primary syphilis, genital herpes, and lymphogranuloma venereum in Antananarivo, Madagascar. (3/380)

Ulcer material from consecutive patients attending clinics in Antananarivo, Madagascar, was tested using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (M-PCR) to detect Treponema pallidum, Haemophilus ducreyi, and herpes simplex virus. Sera were tested for syphilis and for IgG and IgM antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis by microimmunofluorescence testing (MIF). By M-PCR, 33% of 196 patients had chancroid, 29% had syphilitic ulcers, and 10% had genital herpes; 32% of the ulcer specimens were M-PCR negative. Compared with M-PCR, syphilis serology was 72% sensitive and 83% specific. The sensitivity of clinical diagnosis of syphilis, chancroid, and genital herpes was 93%, 53%, and 0% and specificity was 20%, 52%, and 99%, respectively. Less schooling was associated with increased prevalence of syphilitic ulcers (P=.001). Sixteen patients (8%) were clinically diagnosed with lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV); 1 plausible case of LGV was found by MIF. In Madagascar, primary care of genital ulcers should include syndromic treatment for syphilis and chancroid.  (+info)

Diagnosis of bubonic plague by PCR in Madagascar under field conditions. (4/380)

The diagnostic value of a PCR assay that amplifies a 501-bp fragment of the Yersinia pestis caf1 gene has been determined in a reference laboratory with 218 bubo aspirates collected from patients with clinically suspected plague managed in a regional hospital in Madagascar. The culture of Y. pestis and the detection of the F1 antigen (Ag) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) were used as reference diagnostic methods. The sensitivity of PCR was 89% (57 of 64) for the Y. pestis-positive patients, and 80.7% (63 of 78) for the F1 Ag-positive patients. The specificity of PCR for the culture-, F1 Ag-, and antibody-negative patients (n = 105) was 100%. Because in Madagascar most patients with plague are managed and their clinical samples are collected in remote villages, the usefulness of PCR was evaluated for routine diagnostic use in the operational conditions of the control program. The sensitivity of PCR was 50% (25 of 50) relative to the results of culture and 35.2% (19 of 54) relative to the results of the F1 Ag immunocapture ELISA. The specificity of PCR under these conditions was 96%. In conclusion, the PCR method was found to be very specific but not as sensitive as culture or the F1 Ag detection method. The limitation in sensitivity may have been due to suboptimal field conditions and the small volumes of samples used for DNA extraction. This technique is not recommended as a routine diagnostic test for plague in Madagascar.  (+info)

Soaring and non-soaring bats of the family pteropodidae (flying foxes, Pteropus spp.): wing morphology and flight performance. (5/380)

On oceanic islands, some large diurnal megachiropteran bat species (flying foxes; Pteropus spp.) frequently use thermal or slope soaring during foraging flights to save energy. We compared the flight morphology and gliding/soaring performance of soaring versus non-soaring Pteropus species, one pair on American Samoa and one pair on the Comoro Islands, and two other soaring/flap-gliding species and one non-soaring species. We predicted that the soaring species should have a lower body mass, longer wings and, hence, lower wing loadings than those species that use mainly flapping flight. This would give a lower sinking speed during gliding, a higher glide ratio, and enable the bats to make tighter turns with lower sinking speeds than in the non-soaring species. We theoretically calculated the gliding and circling performances of both the soaring and non-soaring species. Our results show that there are tendencies towards longer wings and lower wing loadings in relation to body size in the gliding/soaring flying foxes than in the non-soaring ones. In the species-pair comparison of the soaring and non-soaring species on American Samoa and the Comoro Islands, the soarers on both islands turn out to have lower wing loadings than their non-soaring partners in spite of opposite size differences among the pairs. These characteristics are in accordance with our hypothesis on morphological adaptations. Most differences are, however, only significant at a level of P<0.1, which may be due to the small sample size, but overlap also occurs. Therefore, we must conclude that wing morphology does not seem to be a limiting factor preventing the non-soarers from soaring. Instead, diurnality in the soaring species seems to be the ultimate determinant of soaring behaviour. The morphological differences cause visible differences in soaring and gliding performance. The glider/soarers turn out to have lower minimum sinking speeds, lower best glide speeds and smaller turning radii than the non-soarers. When the wing measurements and soaring performance are normalized to a body mass of 0.5 kg for all species, the minimum sinking speed becomes significantly lower (P<0.05) in the three soaring and the one flap-gliding species (0.63 m s(-)(1)) than in the three non-soaring species (0.69 m s(-)(1)). Interestingly, the zones in the diagrams for the glide polars and circling envelopes of these similar-sized bats become displaced for the glider/soarers versus the non-soarers. The glide polars overlap slightly only at the gliding speeds appropriate for these bats, whereas the circling envelopes do not overlap at the appropriate bank angles and turning radii. This points towards adaptations for better gliding/soaring performance in the soaring and gliding species.  (+info)

Seroepidemiology of human plague in the Madagascar highlands. (6/380)

We conducted a seroepidemiological survey of human plague in the general population using random sampling in the area of Ambositra, the main focus of plague in the central highlands of Madagascar (520 confirmed and presumptive cases notified during the past 10 years). Sera were tested using an ELISA IgG F1 assay. Considering the internal validity of the assay and the sampling method, the overall corrected prevalence of F1 antibodies was 0.6% (95% CI: 0.2%-1.8%). Being nearly 0 up to the age of 40, the corrected prevalence increased markedly after 45 years to 6.2%. Six of 20 individuals who declared to have been treated for clinical suspicion of bubonic plague in the past had F1 antibodies. The seroprevalence did not differ according to gender except in individuals > 60, where antibodies were significantly more frequent in males. This study suggests that the number of clinically suspected cases of plague provided by the surveillance network was plausible, despite some true cases being missed and a significant number of false positives. We also confirm that Yersinia pestis infections may occur without marked clinical manifestations and patients may recover without treatment, in accordance with old observations of pestis minor.  (+info)

Successful contracting of prevention services: fighting malnutrition in Senegal and Madagascar. (7/380)

There are very few documented large-scale successes in nutrition in Africa, and virtually no consideration of contracting for preventive services. This paper describes two successful large-scale community nutrition projects in Africa as examples of what can be done in prevention using the contracting approach in rural as well as urban areas. The two case-studies are the Secaline project in Madagascar, and the Community Nutrition Project in Senegal. The article explains what is meant by 'success' in the context of these two projects, how these results were achieved, and how certain bottlenecks were avoided. Both projects are very similar in the type of service they provide, and in combining private administration with public finance. The article illustrates that contracting out is a feasible option to be seriously considered for organizing certain prevention programmes on a large scale. There are strong indications from these projects of success in terms of reducing malnutrition, replicability and scale, and community involvement. When choosing that option, a government can tap available private local human resources through contracting out, rather than delivering those services by the public sector. However, as was done in both projects studied, consideration needs to be given to using a contract management unit for execution and monitoring, which costs 13-17% of the total project's budget. Rigorous assessments of the cost-effectiveness of contracted services are not available, but improved health outcomes, targeting of the poor, and basic cost data suggest that the programmes may well be relatively cost-effective. Although the contracting approach is not presented as the panacea to solve the malnutrition problem faced by Africa, it can certainly provide an alternative in many countries to increase coverage and quality of services.  (+info)

Humoral immune response in chromoblastomycosis during and after therapy. (8/380)

A longitudinal study was carried out in Madagascar, the most important focus of chromoblastomycosis (P. Esterre, A. Andriantsimahavandy, E. Ramarcel, and J. L. Pecarrere, Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg. 55:45-47, 1996), to investigate natural immunity to this disease. Sequential blood samples were obtained before, during, and at the end of a successful therapeutic trial with terbinafine, a new antifungal drug. Using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunoblot methods, detailed analyses of antibody concentration and antigen mapping were conducted for 136 serum samples and tentatively correlated to epidemiological and pathobiological data. Two different cytoplasmic antigens, corresponding to the two fungal species involved (Fonsecaea pedrosoi and Cladophialophora carrionii), were used to analyze the distribution of different classes of immunoglobulins. This was done with respect to the origin of the isolates, clinical and pathobiological. Although strong individual variations were noticed, some major antigens (one of 18.5 kDa specific for F. pedrosoi and two of 23.5 and 33 kDa, respectively, specific for C. carrionii) corresponded to high antibody prevalence and concentration. As some antigenic components were also detected by immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgA antibodies, the role that these specific antibodies could play in the immune response is discussed.  (+info)

Antananarivo, called Tananarive in French (pronounced [tananaʁiv]) and also known by its colonial shorthand form Tana, is the capital and largest city of Madagascar. The larger urban area surrounding the city, known as Antananarivo-Renivohitra (Antananarivo-Mother Hill or Antananarivo-Capital), is the capital of Analamanga region. The city is located 1,280 m (4,199 ft) above the sea level in the center of the island, and has been the islands largest population center since at least the 18th century. Antananarivo was historically the capital of the Merina people, who continue to form the majority of the citys estimated 1,300,000 (2013) inhabitants, as well as the surrounding urban areas which in all have a total metropolitan population approaching three million. All 18 Malagasy ethnic groups, as well as residents of Chinese, Indian, European and other origins, are well represented in the city.

The Rova of Antananarivo /ˈruːvə/ (Malagasy: Rovani Manjakamiadana [ˈruvən manˌdzakəmiˈadə̥nə]) is a royal palace complex (rova) in Madagascar that served as the home of the sovereigns of the Kingdom of Imerina in the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as of the rulers of the Kingdom of Madagascar in the 19th century. Its counterpart is the nearby fortified village of Ambohimanga, which served as the spiritual seat of the kingdom in contrast to the political significance of the Rova in the capital. Located in the central highland city of Antananarivo, the Rova occupies the highest point on Analamanga, formerly the highest of Antananarivos many hills. Merina king Andrianjaka, who ruled Imerina from around 1610 until 1630, is believed to have captured Analamanga from a Vazimba king around 1610 or 1625 and erected the sites first fortified royal structure. Successive Merina kings continued to rule from the site until the fall of the monarchy in 1896, frequently restoring, modifying or ...

With its 24 million inhabitants and a surface area of some 590,000 km², Madagascar is one of the worlds largest islands. It is located in the southwest Indian Ocean and is separated from Africa by the Mozambique Channel. It is also one of the poorest countries in the world: over 90% of the population lives on less than $2 a day.. Madagascar has a particularly rich environment and exceptional biodiversity: over 80% of its plant and animal species are endemic. It is also one of the most vulnerable ecological systems to climate change, environmental risks and natural disasters. Madagascar has suffered from political instability for several years. The repeated crises have hampered development, particularly in infrastructure and public services. Yet the island has a number of industrial sectors with high added value, such as agro-industry, textiles, new technologies, tourism and craft industries.

The outbreak that included 119 cases including 40 deaths last November has increased to 213 cases and 57 fatalities and in light of the recent tropical storm and flooding on Madagascar, which has displaced tens of thousands of people and untold numbers of rats,the risk of more plague is something to be concerned about.. Chan said of the Madagascar plague outbreak:. This is the kind of geographically focused and readily manageable outbreak that WHO was designed to contain. Plague is endemic in Madagascar, where seasonal outbreaks are amplified by the dual forces of poverty and unplanned urbanization. Detected early, the disease responds well to treatment. Researchers at the countrys Institut Pasteur, supported by WHO, have developed a cheap and reliable diagnostic test that delivers results in 15 minutes.. But the outbreak that started last November has some disturbing dimensions. The fleas that transmit this ancient disease from rats to humans have developed resistance to the first-line ...

Today there was a short article in Discover on a paper published last spring on the models for the settling of Madagascar. I didnt pay too much attention when the paper came out for two reasons. First, it focused on Y and mtDNA, and Ive been playing with Malagasy autosomes. Second, it seemed a ridiculously brutal computational attack on a question which seems to have a straightforward intuitive explanation: yes, Madagascar was settled by a small founding group. With hindsight I may have spoken too soon, or passed judgement too hastily. Looking at the paper the explicit model building of demography does still seem like overkill, but they obtain some important precision here. The phylogenetics and the archaeology align nicely.. Though the authors of the article talk about future directions, I think we will find that the Malagasy originate from a small group of Malayo-Polynesians who did find themselves stranded on Madagascar (later to absorb African admixture). This is not controversial. Rather, ...
That violence, as it turns out, is connected to the reforestation and agriculture issues hes focused on… but its a little complicated. Give me a moment or two to try and catch you up.. Andry Rajoelina is the mayor of Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. Hes a radio DJ, a media entrepreneur and has been an increasingly fierce critic of Marc Ravalomanana, the president of the country. On December 13, the president closed Rajoelinas television station - Viva TV - because it broadcast an interview with exiled former leader Didier Ratsiraka. (Ravalomanana defeated Ratsiraka in a controversial election in 2002 - regulations required a run-off election, which was never held - and the country suffered six months of struggle before Ratsiraka fled to France.). The closure of Viva TV has been condemned internationally, and it provoked Rajoelina to increase the stridency of his critique. About two weeks ago, Rajoelina declared himself in charge of Madagascar and demanded that the President step ...
UN agencies warned of a potential catastrophe, as around half of the population in southern Madagascar - nearly 850,000 people - are experiencing alarming levels of hunger.. This is the third consecutive year in a row that crops have failed and water availability is extremely low. The drought has left around 20 percent of households in southern Madagascar experiencing emergency levels of hunger. The UN said they will declare a state of famine if the situation worsens. These are people living on the very brink. Many have nothing but wild fruits to eat. We must act together now to save lives, said Chris Nikoi, regional director of the UNs World Food Programme.. Food supplies have been running low since August and the next harvest is not due until March. The dry season is coming to an end now, and as the sun continues its passage south onto the Tropic of Capricorn, hopes are for a good rainy season.. With La Nina developing in the Pacific Ocean, southern Africa could experience above average ...

Madagascar faces a bubonic plague epidemic unless it slows the spread of the disease, experts have warned.. The Red Cross and Pasteur Institute say inmates in the islands rat-infested jails are particularly at risk.. Madagascar had 256 plague cases and 60 deaths last year, the worlds highest recorded number.. If the plague gets into prisons there could be a sort of atomic explosion of plague within the town. The prison walls will never prevent the plague from getting out and invading the rest of the town, said the institutes Christophe Rogier.. Experts say that Africa - especially Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo - accounts for more than 90% of cases worldwide. ...

The anxiety of the French Government to avoid creating a Jewish problem in Madagascar if Jewish settlement on a large scale were carried out there is revealed by Leon Alter, a member of the Polish Madagascar mission and a Jewish authority on emigration, in a long article in the Polish democratic journal, Epoka.. Mr. Alter declares that the Polish delegation was informed by the French authorities that one of the conditions of the settlement of the Jews was that they should be confined to an area. If the Jews overran the island, they would be deported, it was stated, because France did not wish to create a Jewish problem on the island.. The colonization problem of Madagascar, Mr. Alter says, does not only concern the question of choosing the right province for colonization and of securing the cooperation of the French Government. It is, in the first place, a question of selecting the right human material and of creating an organization which should supply all the necessary financial backing ...
So, I finished booking all my flights today, I had to call the airline in Madagascar to book the internal flights from Antananarivo to Tolagnaro. Ive been putting this off because I wasnt sure if they would speak English or not. They did and it worked out okay, although the one hour flight cost $583, guess it made up for the savings on my other ticket. No luck on the transfusion kit, apparently not something the U.S. medical suppliers are used to selling to non-medically trained individuals.

Madagascar has a long history of using Orthoptera as food and feed. Our understanding of the biological diversity of this resource, its contemporary use, and its future potentials in Madagascar is extremely limited. The present study contributes basic knowledge of the biological diversity and local uses of edible Orthoptera in Malagasy food cultures. Data was collected with key informants in 47 localities covering most of the ecoregions of Madagascar and corresponding to 12 of the 19 ethnic groups. Orthoptera are consumed throughout Madagascar. We report 37 edible Orthoptera species, of which 28 are new species records of edible Orthoptera in Madagascar and 24 are new species records of edible Orthoptera in the world. Most species are endemic and occur in farming zones. Children are the primary collectors and consumers of edible Orthoptera. The insects are eaten both as snacks and main meals. Edible Orthoptera are primarily collected casually and marketing is rare, with the notable exceptions of the
This preliminary study, conducted between June and October 2009, represents the first comprehensive survey of the dugong population and its habitat in northern Madagascar. It provided the means for piloting a low-cost, low-tech methodology, previously utilized with success in the Union of the Comoros, and only minor adaptations were necessary for its application in Madagascar, hence the resulting data are comparable.

Aponogeton madagascariensis which is known as the Madagascar Lace Plant, is one of the most highly prized plants in the hobby. Its leaves are broad and long with a very delicate lace appearance. Under the right conditions, these plants will flower regularly in the aquarium. This plant is more demanding than most, but is well worth the extra effort. Plant the Madagascar Lace Plant singly in the mid-ground part of the aquarium as a focal point. Trim any dead tips on these plants, to inhibit the entire leaf from decaying. Do not allow algae or any other debris to settle on or within the leaves. Provide a high amount of light in the range of 3 to 5 watts per gallon, using full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs. Reproduction with this plant occurs through bulb separation, or formation of seeds after flowering. Allow the new plant to develop a root system and immature leaves prior to separating it from the mother plant. At that time, it can then be planted in a different location. The Madagascar Lace Plant ...

Abstract : The Ralstonia solanacearum species complex (Rssc) is a highly diverse cluster of strains, many of which proved destructive worldwide causing bacterial wilt (BW) on a wide plant host range. Potato BW has been described for nearly 30 years in Madagascar highlands (phylotype I and Ill) without major impact on production. Recently, potato production was dramatically devastated by severe outbreaks. Controlling this disease is crucial for Malagasy potato producers and a first important step to achieve this goal is the identification of the strains involved and of their putative origin. Consequently, the genetic diversity and population structure of the Rssc was investigated in the major potato production areas in the highlands. By using different molecular tools we characterized a large collection of strains (n=1224; 75 sites) collected from potato production areas in 2013, April (n=763; 41 sites) and December (n=461; 33 sites). Present for a long time in Madagascar, Phylotypes I and Ill ...

Four poliomyelitis outbreaks caused by vaccine-derived polioviruses have been reported recently, including one in Madagascar in 2002. In all cases, the viral
Its also spreading in two different ways-by fleas and by people-which some have dubbed a double plague. Usually, plague infections arise as bubonic plague, spread by flea bites. In this case-the Black Death scenario-Y. pestis moves from the site of a flea bite on a human to the lymphatic system, taking up residence and inflaming a lymph node. This causes a painful swelling called a bubo, where the infection gets its name. If its left untreated, the infection can spread to the blood, causing septicaemic plague, or the lungs, causing pneumonic plague.. Pneumonic plague is the most severe form. It can become a life-threatening situation in just 24 hours and can begin to spread from person to person in droplets, coughed or sneezed.. Most of the people infected in the current outbreak in Madagascar have the pneumonic form.. Authorities suspect that the outbreak kicked off when a 31-year-old man from the coastal city of Tamatave visited the Ankazobe District in the Central Highlands. On August 27, ...

There are three types of plague: bubonic, pneumonic, and septicemic. Bubonic plague is characterized by symptoms including fever, chills, and inflamed lymph nodes called buboes. Septicemic plague, in addition to symptoms such as fever, chills, and weakness, may cause tissues to turn black and die. Pneumonic plague additionally involves serious pneumonia with chest pains and coughing; this form of plague is most virulent and is commonly spread from person to person, typically through inhalation of contaminated droplets. The majority of confirmed, probable, and suspected cases in Madagascar were pneumonic, with reports of more than 300 cases of bubonic plague, 1 case of septicemic plague, and additional cases of unidentified plague types ...

On Madagascar, the distribution of M. griveaudi extends along the western lowlands north to Ankarana in the far north of the island, and on eastern Madagascar south to the vicinity of Daraina. It is found up to 480 m (1,570 ft) above sea level and often occurs in karstic areas. Its range extensively overlaps that of M. aelleni, which is regularly found in the same forests and caves.[23] Although some ecological and behavioral data has been published on Miniopterus manavi, the recognition of several cryptic species within this group, which may occur in the same places, renders the association of these data with any of the species now recognized uncertain;[24] however, species of Miniopterus generally feed on insects.[25] Miniopterus griveaudi was assessed as Data Deficient on the IUCN Red List in 2008,[1] but the account predates the recognition of the species on Anjouan and Madagascar. Miniopterus griveaudi is known from 15 to 670 m (49 to 2,198 ft) altitude on Grande Comore and 5 to 890 m ...

As previously mentioned, according to this very important story from The Daily Northwestern, Lathem had discovered a gene in Yersinia pestis, known as PLA, that allows pestis to replicate quickly in air-filled areas - such as lungs, where it causes pneumonia, the key element of pneumonic plague - but does not affect its replication rate in lymph nodes and the bloodstream. At Feinberg, Lathem discovered that the development of PLA gene was the factor that caused pestis to evolve from its ancestral bacteria and that PLA deactivates a key regulator in humans immune system response to bacterial infection, known as PAI-1.. We find it extremely interesting that the current version of the plague now striking Madagascar and threatening to move on to mainland Africa and perhaps the world is largely of the pneumonic variety and is spreading much more quickly than experts had first predicted, now being called the worst outbreak of the plague there in more than 50 years.. Over the next several days, ...
The Madagascan snail finally reaches Europe.. Some people feared that Europe would resort to protectionism in the face of an economic crisis. But here is heartening evidence to the contrary showing how Europe is dismantling its trade barriers. The EUs Official Journal draws to our attention an overlooked decision of 23 October which partially lifted restrictions that were imposed in March 2006 on imports from Madagascar of products of animal origin (excluding fishery products). The effect of the change is to allow imports from Madagascar of snails - and not just one type of Madagascan snail: For the purposes of this decision snails means chilled, frozen, shelled, cooked, prepared or preserved terrestrial gastropods of the species Helix pomatia Linné, Helix aspersa Muller, Helix lucorum and of the species of the family Achatinidae. An economic recovery must be on its way - albeit at a snails pace. ...

Offshore staff. LONDON - ExxonMobil has completed a 2D seismic survey over the Ampasindava block offshore Madagascar, according to partner Sterling Energy.. Data from the 1,314-km (816-mi) program should improve subsurface imaging of the large Sifaka prospect and help define further drilling prospects in the block. A first well will likely be drilled in 2015-2016.. According to Sterling, a proposal to extend the 2D campaign into the Ambilobe block would have provided only limited new data.. The company and joint venture partner Pura Vida Mauritius have therefore begun planning a 1,250-sq km (482-sq mi) 3D seismic program to mature identified leads into drilling prospects.

Madagascar is the largest exporter of lychees to the EU with around 20,000 tonnes of produce shipped annually between December and January. In the 2010 Fruit Logistica international trade fair in Berlin, representatives of GEL Madagascar (Groupement des exportateurs de litchis) contacted COLEACP for support. They were experiencing problems due to sulphur residues in the fruit, which exceeded the permitted levels for EU markets. This was potentially very serious as it could result in a restriction or ban on sales to the EU. Litchi is a key export crop in Madagascar, and has important development implications as a major source of income and rural employment. It is grown predominantly by very small-scale growers, and sold via collectors and brokers to export companies, who then supply local and global supply chains. This export market is worth over €14 million to the Madagascar economy. The supply chain involves 30,000 families, 3,000 seasonal workers (pickers, brokers) over 100 transporters and ...

Lemurs are primates found only on the island of Madagascar and a few small neighboring islands. Some of these animals have endogenous lentiviruses in their genomes. How did these viruses infect the isolated lemurs?. Madagascar split off from the African continent at least 100 million years ago, when there were no primates on Earth. Lemurs later appeared in Europe, North America, and Africa. They probably traveled from Africa to Madagascar when the island was not as far as it is today from Africa, on mats of vegetation flushed out of rivers. There they established and speciated (today there are 30 species of lemur on the island), while their ancestors elsewhere died out.. Lentiviruses cause chronic infections in a variety of mammals. The best known lentivirus is HIV-1, which has infected millions of humans and originated from the chimpanzee lentivirus simian immunodeficiency virus. It has been difficult to gauge the age of lentiviruses. Phylogenetic analysis of sequence data from lentiviruses can ...
Scientists from the Institut Pasteur in Paris and the Institut Pasteur in Cambodia, in collaboration with teams from the CNRS and Inria, have demonstrated that asymptomatic dengue infection in children is associated with activation of the immune system via control mechanisms, resulting in the elimination of viral infection without excessive immune activation. This paper, published in the scientific journal Science Translational Medicine on August 30, 2017, represents an important step in improving understanding of the role played by immunity in dengue viral infection.
