Ischemic stroke (IS), caused by occlusion of arteries that supply blood to the brain, remains a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the world. Disruption of blood and oxygen supply to the brain leads to neuronal death in the ischemic core within minutes. The hypoperfused tissue surrounding the ischemic core, the penumbra, is at high risk for infarction over time but still salvageable. Neur ...

Understanding mechanisms underlying comorbid disorders poses a challenge for developing precision medicine tools. Psychiatric disorders are highly comorbid, and are among the last areas of medicine, where classification is driven by phenomenology rather than pathophysiology. We will study comorbidity between the most frequent psychiatric conditions, ADHD, mood/anxiety, and substance use disorders, ...

REgenerative Stem cell therapy for STroke in Europe (RESSTORE)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2020,

Stroke is the second leading cause of death in the world population. When not fatal, stroke often results in disability, due to motor and cognitive impairments, and secondary health problems affecting not only patients but also their families. Building on emerging preclinical and pilot clinical evidences, RESSTORE will focus on the clinical assessment of regenerative cell therapy to improve stroke ...

Brain injury and trauma monitoring using advanced photonics (BitMap)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Our vision is to develop a suite of standardised non-invasive devices that will provide essential information about brain health in neurocritical care and neuromonitoring, with a particular emphasis on 1. traumatic brain injury: the “silent epidemic of the third millennium” and 2. hypoxia in newborn children. Survivors present permanent neurological conditions that have a profound impact on the qu ...

Aggression is a basic physiological trait with important roles throughout evolution, both in defence and predation. When expressed in humans in the wrong context, aggression leads to maladjustment, social impairment and crime. Despite this, knowledge about aggression aetiology is limited and current treatment strategies are insufficient. Contingent to a subdivision into impulsive and instrumental ...

New epigenetic therapy for high-risk neuroblastoma (MIRNATHERAPYNBL)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

Neuroblastoma (NBL) is the most common solid tumor of infancy. Nearly 45% of all children with NBL are designated as high-risk patients and 60% of them die. Therefore, there is an urgent need to identify and target the molecular programs that are responsible for NBL aggressiveness, especially those that contribute to metastasis and resistance to chemotherapy.Recently, it has become evident that mi ...

Best EScalation Treatment in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) (BEST MS)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

"Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a devastating disease of the central nervous system affecting 2.5 million worldwide. MS is a field of constant therapeutic innovation, a fact which brings hope to young adults since MS is one of the most frequent causes of severe handicap. A major unmet need is to rationalize treatment decisions. To date, there is no way of predicting which patients will best respond to ...

Diabetic retinopathy (DR), the leading cause of blindness among working-age individuals in developed countries has been classically considered to be a microcirculatory disease of the retina. However, there is growing evidence to suggest that retinal neurodegeneration is an early event in the pathogenesis of DR. For this reason, it is reasonable to hypothesize that therapeutic strategies based on n ...

Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer. Therapeutic alternatives to metastatic melanoma are very limited. Activation of RAS pathway appears to be the central motor driving melanoma development and maintenance, where BRAFV600E and NRASQ61L are found in ~ 50% and 20% of human melanomas, respectively. Although, these mutually exclusive mutations affect the same pathway emerging preclinical a ...

"Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory, disabling disease of the central nervous system. Recent studies suggest that over the last 50 years a disproportional increase in incidence of MS in women has taken place. The lifetime costs of MS exceed 1.5 million € per case in the UK, and are likely to be similar in other European countries. There is no definitive cure for MS. Immunomodulatory ...

Modelling cancer in Caenorhabditis elegans (canceromics)

Start date: Oct 1, 2007, End date: Mar 31, 2012,

Cancer is a complex disease that results from accumulation of diverse alterations in the genome. There are more than 300 genes identified as “cancer genes” although it is estimated that there are many more involved in cancer development that could be significant during tumorigenesis and putative targets for drugs therapies. Several scientific groups are performing a comprehensive sequencing of gen ...
