Early Microbial Evolution (eMicrobevol)

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

From the primordial emergence of the earliest cells to the ongoing diversification of modern microbiota, the mechanisms that underlie the origin of major prokaryotic groups are still poorly understood. In principle, the origin of both species and higher taxa among prokaryotes should entail similar mechanisms — ecological interactions with the environment paired with natural genetic variation invol ...

We aim to reduce the burden of tobacco-related lung diseases. Our approach is to integrate inexpensive tobacco cessation strategies of proven efficacy into TB control programmes. This has three advantages: a) Preventing non-communicable diseases as well as reducing TB-related deaths; b) TB patients are more likely to quit tobacco than healthy smokers – ‘teachable moments’; and c) in the absence of ...

Labeling of Enalapril from Neonates up to Adolescents (LENA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2018,

Children are often treated as small adults—not as the special patients they are. Regulations exist to encourage the development of drugs and formulation for children. However, off-patent drugs are often administered to children without appropriate formulations or systematic investigations. Therefore, the paediatric use marketing authorisation (PUMA) has been designed.The EMA Paediatric Working Par ...
