Common mechanisms and pathways in Stroke and Alzheimer's disease.It has long been recognized that stroke and (Alzheimer’s Disease) AD often co-occur and have an overlapping pathogenesis. As such, these two diseases are not considered fellow travelers, but rather partners in crime. This multidisciplinary consortium includes epidemiologists, geneticists, radiologists, neurologists with a longstandin ...

The TBVAC2020 proposal builds on the highly successful and long-standing collaborations in subsequent EC-FP5-, FP6- and FP7-funded TB vaccine and biomarker projects, but also brings in a large number of new key partners from excellent laboratories from Europe, USA, Asia, Africa and Australia, many of which are global leaders in the TB field. This was initiated by launching an open call for Express ...

SYSTEMS BIOLOGY OF PATHWAYS INVOLVING BRAIN AGEING (AGEDBRAINSYSBIO)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

In spite of valuable approaches applied to get a broad understanding of genetic, epidemiologic and molecular and system-level biological principles of human aging, cognitive decline remains as one of the greatest health challenges of the old age, with nearly 50% of adults over 85 afflicted of Alzheimer’s disease. Furthermore, drug development has not performed as expected in clinical trials, at le ...

Biomarker for Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in Europe (BiomarCaRE)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Mar 31, 2016,

Biomarkers are considered as tools to enhance cardiovascular risk estimation. However, the value of biomarkers on risk estimation beyond European risk scores, their comparative impact among different European regions and their role in the drive towards personalised medicine remains uncertain.Based on harmonised and standardised European population cohorts we have built significant research collabo ...

The aim of this project is to develop a new generation vaccine for schistosomiasis. The vaccine will be based on exposed proteins and/or glycans of the vulnerable skin stage schistosomula, making it safe and effective. The life stage-specific vaccine target selection strategy is based on state-of-the-art schistosomal transcriptomics and glycomics technologies and data, and unique serum and sample ...

"This proposal will establish an integrated and synergistic network to address the challenge of multiple drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) facing the EU. The objective will be attained through the establishment of a European consortium of expert partners with extensive experience in the conduct of basic and clinical research relating to MDR-TB, TB control and epidemiology. This Consortium will ...

"With 14.4 million prevalent cases and 1.7 million deaths tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the most serious infectious diseases to date. An estimated 2 billion people are believed to be infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and at risk of developing disease. Multi- and extensively drug resistant strains are increasingly appearing in many parts of the world, including Europe. While with current ...

"At healthcare facilities, there is a strong demand for a new advanced air cleaning technology to prevent infectious diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI). The system would avoid the high costs related to healthcare and legal matters which increase every year and are a burden to the fixed costs of maintaining sanitary systems in Europe and ...

"Tuberculosis (TB) is a leading public health problem. About half of the 10% of Mycobacterium tuberculosis-infected individuals develop overt clinical disease, do so within two years of primary infection. The remaining half of the TB patients, develop clinical disease later, owing to “reactivation” of pulmonary TB. Of importance, it is not understood why only 10% infected individuals develop activ ...

Targeting OBesity-driven Inflammation (TOBI)

Start date: Jan 1, 2008, End date: Jun 30, 2011,

"The TOBI project aims to analyse mechanisms provoking adipokine-mediated crosstalk and an inflammatory drift in obese patients. It will be the remit of this project to develop novel strategies to reduce or reverse major adipokine-mediated adverse interactions in peripheral tissues and by periorganic adipose tissue, namely insulin resistance and vascular dysfunction, respectively. Special attentio ...

Genome-wide association studies have linked the CDKN2A locus to an increased risk of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), which is mostly accompanied by insulin resistance (IR) and obesity. The CDKN2A locus encodes p16INK4a, a tumor suppressor. p16INK4a is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases, which regulate the cell cycle. Recent studies have shown a link between p16INK4a and the control of inflammation. T ...
