BACKGROUND: There is a tremendous need to develop novel therapies for heart failure. In particular, sustained pathological hypertrophy, a major predictor of this condition, is a complex process, which involves transcriptional and posttranscriptional regulation of the cardiac genome. There is now clear indication that, besides a few known transcriptional regulators, multiple, still poorly understoo ...

Systems Biology of T-cell Activation in Health and Disease (SYBILLA)

Start date: 01 Apr 2008, End date: 30 Sep 2013,

T-cell activation, whether induced by pathogens or auto-antigens, is a complex process relying on multiple layers of tightly controlled intracellular signalling modules that form an intricate network. Defects in this network can cause severe and chronic disorders such as autoimmune diseases. Although 5% of the population suffer from these diseases, only a few therapeutic treatments are available. ...

Plasmodium Vivax Infection in Pregnancy (PREGVAX)

Start date: 01 Mar 2008, End date: 31 Aug 2012,

"Malaria in pregnancy has been recently prioritised by the EC 7th Framework Program. In response, we propose to carry out a cohort observational study in pregnant women in 5 P. vivax endemic countries, broadly representing most of the world's infections. The Indian and Papua New Guinean endemic sites are included because of their important contribution to the global burden of vivax malaria; PNG h ...

Signalling in life cycle stages of malaria parasites (MALSIG)

Start date: 01 Feb 2009, End date: 31 Jul 2012,

Malaria is a major public health problem in the developing world and is endemic in many regions of India. The development of novel strategies for malaria control requires a better understanding of the biology of malaria parasites. Our project aims at bringing a significant contribution to this field, through dissecting the signalling pathways that regulate essential processes in the life cycle o ...

"The protein synthesis machinery represents one of the most useful targets for the development of new anti-infectives. Several families of broadly used antibiotics (tetracyclines, macrolides, and novel glycopeptides like vancomycin, among others) exert their function by blocking the protein synthesis machinery. Doxicycline, a tetracycline antibiotic, remains a useful tool for the prevention of pal ...
