Blood-based biomarkers such as Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs), circulating free tumor DNA (cfDNA) and microRNAs (miRNAs) have the potential to improve the development of personalized medicines for cancer patients. This is of particular importance when biopsies of the primary tumor or metastases are not accessible (e.g. at early disease stages or in minimal residual disease) or possible and the ass ...

Conduct Disorder (CD) is the key paediatric disorder characterized by severe aggression. It is heterogeneous, and our understanding of the neurobiology to subtype aggression is limited. MATRICS is a multidisciplinary consortium of academic partners and SMEs that focuses on the subtyping of aggression both within CD and of the broader cross-disorder trait of aggression. MATRICS will test the hypoth ...

Despite examples of excellent practice, rare disease (RD) research is still mainly fragmented by data and disease types. Individual efforts have little interoperability and almost no systematic connection between detailed clinical and genetic information, biomaterial availability or research/trial datasets. By developing robust mechanisms and standards for linking and exploiting these data, RD-Con ...

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 ...

Translating disease to cardiovascular health (TransCard)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in Europe and the world. Drugs that lower cholesterol in blood are the most efficient drugs used to date but we are currently still facing a 50-70% residual risk of suffering from CVD. This clearly illustrates an urgent need for the identification, characterization and validation of novel therapeutically relevant targets. Over the last dec ...

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 ...

"Apathy is a prominent and severely debilitating aspect of several psychiatric disorders, most notably schizophrenia. Little is known regarding the neuroscientific basis of apathy, however. Clinically, it has been suggested that two forms of apathy can be distinguished: cognitive apathy (CA) which concerns reduced initiative to start daily activities and social-emotional apathy (SEA) which concern ...

BBMRI - Large Prospective Cohorts (BBMRI-LPC)

Start date: Feb 1, 2013, End date: Jan 31, 2017,

In recent years, biomedical research has crossed international borders in large, collaborative studies showing the value of multidisciplinarity and scale advantage. This has yielded valuable insights and some led to new and better medicines and treatments for diseases. However, disease-focused studies provide less insight in the real disease onset, the relative disease burden in the population, an ...

Incorporating real-life clinical data into drug development (GETREAL)

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

When a new medicine reaches the market, it is accompanied by an extensive data package that provides information about the safety and efficacy of the medicine in a clinical trial setting. However, assessing the expected future value of the medicines when used in “real world” clinical practice requires additional information next to traditional (pre-authorisation) clinical trials. Regulatory, HTA ...

Many neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, are progressive and incurable. Much attention has been paid to understand the insults likely to kill neurons, such as reactive oxygen species and protein aggregation. In addition, it is clear that immune and inflammatory responses are involved in these diseases, but in general it is unclear whether they are protective ...

Treat Iron-Related Childhood-Onset Neurodegeneration (TIRCON)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a heterogeneous group of rare hereditary neurodegenerative disorders characterized by high levels of brain iron. The most common form is pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN). Classic PKAN and most other NBIA cases are characterised by early childhood onset and rapid progression. Currently, there is no proven therapy to hal ...

Cochlear implants (CIs) allow many people to re-gain their speech perception. After implantation listeners need to adapt to a very different sensory experience and the CI transmits only parts and patterns of the information that is present in the acoustically rich natural signal. There are individual differences in the success of this adaptation. This study aims at examining causes of individual v ...
