Our proposal encompasses parallel clinical trials addressing the feasibility and the effectiveness of donor-derived regulatory T cells (Treg) as a therapeutic agent in the treatment and prevention of tissue and organ damage resulting from graft versus host disease (GVHD) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).We propose a collaborative clinical study in which Treg therapy for GHVD is ...

Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiome contributes to our ability to extract energy from the diet and influences development and function of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, which regulate energy balance and behaviour. This has led to hypothesize that developing microbiome-based dietary interventions can be cost-effective measures to prevent diet-related and behavioural diso ...

Assessing individual exposure to environmental stressors and predicting health outcomes implies that both environmental exposures and epi/genetic variations are reliably measured simultaneously. HEALS (Health and Environment-wide Associations based on Large population Surveys) brings together in an innovative approach a comprehensive array of novel technologies, data analysis and modeling tools th ...

Organ transplantation has emerged as the “gold standard” therapy for end-stage organ failure. Incomplete control of chronic allograft injury but also the adverse effects of long-term immunosuppression (IS) continue to challenge the long-term success of transplantation. The paradigm is shifting from increasing “net”-IS by novel drugs to the concept of minimizing long-term IS as early as possible. H ...

Preventing immunological rejection of transplanted organs without the need for long-term use of pharmacological immunosuppression is a primary objective in transplantation medicine. Reducing the need for immunosuppression would dramatically improve the outcome for transplant recipients and reduce health costs for society. The means to achieve this goal has not been realised with pharmacological or ...

Novel transplant regimens are currently being developed to improve beneficial GvL effects and reduce GvHD and infections via several new forms of cellular therapies. This newly emerging supra-disciplinary field of cellular therapy and regenerative medicine is also being used to improve outcomes in autoimmune disease (such as Rheumatoid Arthritis) and cancers. The goal of this research programme is ...

Cost effective Direct to Eye prosthesis SMART Guidance System (D2EYE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jan 31, 2016,

Approximately 800,000 hip operations are performed annually in Europe. In 56% of these operations, the components, in particular the cup, are not aligned correctly; this misalignment alters the biomechanics of the system, such that excessive wear of the cup occurs. The subsequent reduction in implant lifespan will affect ~450,000 European citizens, an average of 30,000 per year. In financial terms ...

ATMP GMP Open Access Research Alliance - AGORA (AGORA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

We propose an academic & industrial partnership to facilitate safe and effective delivery of new advanced therapy medicines within the framework of the relevant EU regulations which our previous FP7 funded project have identified as creating unanticipated barriers to development of this field. Over 80% of advanced therapy medicines (ATMPs) trials in the EU are academic investigator led and sponsor ...

Major objective: It is our aim to develop a lipid based diet that is able to delay or prevent onset of Alzheimer’s disease and related diseases and has a stabilizing effect on cognitive performance in aging. Multiple lines of evidence suggest that there is a large overlap between risk factor of these three diseases. Importantly, there is equally strong evidence that prevention and treatment of the ...

Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) are medicinal products for human use, based on gene therapy, somatic cell therapy or tissue engineering. A rapidly growing area in translational research, they represent the ‘next generation’ of complex medicines for complex diseases and pose particular challenges to medicines regulation.Regulation (EC) No 1394/2007 has been designed to ensure the free m ...

Lipids are central to the regulation and control of cellular processes by acting as basic building units for biomembranes, the platforms for the vast majority of cellular functions. Recent developments in lipid mass spectrometry have set the scene for a completely new way to understand the composition of membranes, cells and tissues in space and time by allowing the precise identification and quan ...

In the eurIPFnet consortium, leading European basic and clinical scientists in the field of interstitial lung diseases associate to jointly decipher the natural course and molecular pathomechanisms of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and to develop new therapeutic strategies for patients with IPF. This devastating disease affects about 360.000 patients in the EU and causes a substantial socioec ...
