The majority of critically ill children admitted to Paediatric Intensive Care Units (PICU) will require sedation and analgesia which is commonly achieved with a combination of an benzodiazepine and an opioid. However, these agents have a significant side-effect profile, including tolerance, withdrawal and respiratory/circulatory depression. Clonidine is commonly used for sedation in PICU and recom ...

... e ‘MIP-DILI’ project will address this situation by the development of innovative preclinical test systems which are both mechanism-based and of physiological, pharmacological and pathological relevance to DILI in humans. An iterative, tiered approach with respect to test compounds, test systems, bioanalysis and systems analysis will be adopted to evaluate existing models and develop new models th ...

The mouse shows great similarities in development, physiology and biochemistry to humans, which makes it a key model for research into human disease. The major challenges for mouse functional genomics in the 21st century are to:• Develop a series of mutant alleles for every gene in the mouse genome• Determine the phenotypic consequences of each mutation• Identify mouse models for the complete dise ...

"Sedentary lifestyles have led to the increase of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and sarcopenia (decreased muscle mass) of the elderly. Skeletal muscle plays a key role in these conditions, and it is clear that exercise can be as effective as medication in treating some of these ailments. The adaptation of muscle to exercise involves the coordinated regulation of gene networks, whose products adapt mus ...

Inter-individual differences in reaction to drugs and pharmacological treatments can cause severe adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and are a common reason of withdrawal of drugs from the market. ADRs are as costly for society as treatment itself and are a major cause of hospitalizations and deaths. Genetic polymorphisms in genes encoding enzymes involved in drug metabolism can only explain a small su ...

... with biological and technological resources to meet that goal. In order to demonstrate the value of pluripotent stem cells for toxicology, the consortium will focus on four complementary aspects: Relevance –i.e. establishing and maintaining discrete cell phenotypes over long-term cultures; providing large versatility to adapt to assays of specific pathways. Efficiency –for i) automated cell produ ...

Discovery of Type 2 Diabetes Targets (ICEBERG)

Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

This proposal is focused on the identification and biological validation of the metabolic pathways and key regulatory genes that control insulin sensitivity in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We are focusing on skeletal muscle because it is quantitatively the most important tissue involved in maintaining glucose homeostasis under insulin-stimulated conditions and it is a major site of insulin res ...

More than 100 million Europeans are affected by arthritis and other rheumatic diseases that cause stiffness, inflammation and swelling in the joints. Notably, pain is one of the most bothersome symptoms reported by this group of people. Pain not only impairs the ability to function and reduces the quality of life, but also forms the basis for an increasing economical burden. According to the Europ ...
