This cancer treatment gives patients night-vision, and we finally know why

In the early 2000s, it was reported that some cancer patients being treated with chlorin e6 were experiencing enhanced night vision.Using a molecular simulation, researchers discovered that a chlorin e6 injection under infrared light activates vision by changing retinal in the same way that visible light does. Researchers hope that this chemical reaction could one day be harnessed to help treat certain types of blindness and sensitivity to light. In the early 2000s, it was reported that a...

Institut Pasteur isolates strains of coronavirus 2019-nCoV detected in France

As well as sequencing the whole genome of coronavirus 2019-nCoV, the Institut Pasteur continued to work on the samples taken from the first confirmed cases. The quality of these initial samples enabled rapid cell-culture isolation of the new virus. The Institut Pasteur's scientists now have access to the virus responsible for the infection. The isolation of the virus paves the way for new diagnostic, therapeutic and prophylactic approaches.
