Anti-Parasitic Drug Discovery in Epigenetics (A-PARADDISE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jan 31, 2017,

This proposal builds on the proven methodology developed in the SEtTReND FP7 project to develop inhibitors of schistosome HME as lead compounds for new drugs. We will employ a target-based strategy for the development of novel drug leads against schistosomiasis, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease and malaria by targeting histone modifying enzymes (HME), in particular those involved in acetylation/deace ...

TargetIng novel MEchanisms of Resolution in inflammation (TIMER)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

Resolution of inflammation is a key determinant of pathology, and an active process which involves diverse pathways and molecules. The general objective of the TIMER Consortium is to identify and validate new molecules involved in the resolution of inflammation as a basis for the development of innovative therapeutic strategies in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The project will invo ...

The project aims to develop novel inhibitors of chronic autoimmune and inflammatory diseases by targeting members of the Src tyrosine kinase family. Src-family kinases have recently emerged as major therapeutic targets in malignant diseases but their suitability as potential targets of inflammatory diseases has not yet recieved widespread acceptance. On the other hand, members of the applicant con ...

Environmental Justice Organizations, Liabilities and Trade (EJOLT)

Start date: Mar 15, 2011, End date: Mar 14, 2015,

Environmental Justice Organizations (EJOs) are civil society organizations locally or globally involved in conflicts over resource extraction or waste disposal. Such conflicts increase in number as the world economy uses more materials and energy. The EJOs focus on the link between the need for environmental security and the defence of basic human rights. The project EJOLT unites a consortium of i ...

Access to Pharmaceuticals (ATP)

Start date: Oct 1, 2009, End date: Mar 31, 2013,

Access to Pharmaceuticals Equitable access to pharmaceuticals, particularly for developing countries is an essential human right. Various complex impediments hinder access, which is the subject of ongoing multidisciplinary studies. Intellectual Property and product development are two issues that can be used as tools to address the problem of access, particularly to make patented drugs more afford ...

Schistosoma Epigenetics - Targets, Regulation, New Drugs (SEtTReND)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

We propose to develop novel drug leads for the therapy of the major human parasitic disease, schistosomiasis, using a holistic approach that will enable us to progress from the cloned target protein to the lead compound and from epigenetic inhibitors to crucial targets. For this, we have chosen to target the histone modifying enzymes (HME); histone deacetylases (HDAC), histone acetyltransferases ( ...
