Zoonotic Anticipation and Preparedness Initiative (ZAPI)

Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Feb 29, 2020,

Emerging infectious diseases are occurring at increasing frequency in Europe and other regions of the world, having profound impacts on public and/or veterinary health as well as disruptive effects on sector, regional or even global economy. The predominantly zoonotic nature of emerging pathogens calls for a One Health approach uniting the human medical and veterinary fields, dedicated to swiftly ...

Despite examples of excellent practice, rare disease (RD) research is still mainly fragmented by data and disease types. Individual efforts have little interoperability and almost no systematic connection between detailed clinical and genetic information, biomaterial availability or research/trial datasets. By developing robust mechanisms and standards for linking and exploiting these data, RD-Con ...

"The aim of SYBIL is to carry out extensive functional validation of the genetic determinants of rare and common skeletal diseases and the age related factors contributing to these painful conditions. To achieve this goal SYBIL will gather complementary translational and transnational scientists, systems biologists, disease modellers, leading SMEs and industrialists that will perform in-depth char ...

Gene Therapy for X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) (NET4CGD)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2018,

This project is focused on the clinical development of a new orphan drug that can rapidly become a new treatment option for patients with the X-linked form of chronic granulomatous disease (X-CGD). This rare primary immune deficiency of phagocytes is caused by mutations in the gp91phox gene. Affected patients are highly-susceptible to infections and develop inflammatory granulomas. Several member ...

Primary immune deficiencies (PID) are inherited disorders of the adaptive and innate immune system marked by severe infections, autoimmunity and high risk of cancer. Treatment entails hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation from allogeneic donors, however in the absence of an HLA compatible donor, HSCT outcome is limited by delayed or suboptimal reconstitution and complications. SCID-X1 and ...

Systems prediction of Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (SysCLAD)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2014,

Lung transplantation (LT) is the standard of care for selected patients with chronic respiratory failure. Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) (i.e. “Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome” (BOS) and “Restrictive Allograft Syndrome” (RAS)) represents a major health risk for LT recipients, requiring the use of heavy treatments and possible retransplantation. Observed in almost 50% of patients afte ...
