European AIDS Vaccine Initiative 2020 (EAVI2020)

Start date: Nov 1, 2015, End date: Oct 31, 2020,

HIV-1 is responsible for a global pandemic of 35 million people, and continues to spread at a rate of >2 million new infections/year. It is widely acknowledged that a protective vaccine would be the most effective means to reduce HIV-1 spread and ultimately eliminate the pandemic, while a therapeutic vaccine may help mitigate the clinical course of disease and lead to strategies of viral eradicati ...

Consortium on Organ Preservation in Europe (COPE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Jun 30, 2018,

The discrepancy between organ supply and demand remains the biggest challenge facing the transplant community today. In order to increase the amount of available donor organs, transplant specialists are increasingly turning to sub-optimal donor organs. Organs from such donors, usually have normal or near normal function before death, but retrieval, storage and transplantation cause progressive inj ...

A FRAMEWORK FOR USER CENTRED PRIVACY AND SECURITY IN THE CLOUD (CLARUS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

Although cloud computing offers many benefits, security issues such as confidentiality and privacy are still major concerns to those intending to migrate to the cloud. Traditional cloud security has been based on assurance to customers that cloud providers follow sound security practices. As a result, current security mechanisms are commonly located within the cloud platform, hence compelling cust ...

"Cancer susceptibility genes involved in Mendelian inherited forms of colorectal cancer (CRC) (e.g., Lynch Syndrome) may account for only 5% of all CRC cases. However, increased cancer risk because of a positive family history may vary from 25 up to 40%, and the genetic basis for this familial aggregation remains largely unknown. Recently, high-resolution genomic strategies have revealed an unprec ...

Background. Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is one of the most common and severe hospital-adquired infections, and multidrugresistant gram-negative bacilli (MDR-GNB) constitute the main etiology in many countries. Inappropriate empiric antimicrobial treatment is associated with increased mortality. In this context, the empirical treatment of choice for VAP is unknown. Colistin, and “old” dru ...

Adopting Hospital Based Health Technology Assessment in EU (AdHopHTA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2015,

The use of HTA as a part of the decision-making process at national, regional, and international levels has evolved considerably over the past 35 years. However, still an important number of good-value innovative HTs never reach clinical practice while, in many instances, others with no significant added value actually do. This situation can be effectively overcome by approaching HTA at hospital l ...

Suicidality: Treatment Occurring in Paediatrics (STOP)

Start date: Nov 1, 2010, End date: Apr 30, 2015,

The emergence of suicidality in patients receiving drug treatment is of concern because of the overall burden and the possible link with completed suicide. The lack of uniform requirements for defining, detecting and recording suicidality and the presence of disease related confounders create major problems. It is possible that Medication-Related Suicidality (MRS) differs from Psychopathology-Rela ...
