 ONGOING 
Molecular in vitro diagnostics and biomedical research have allowed great progress in personalised medicine but further progress is limited by insufficient guidelines for pre-analytical workflow steps (sample collection, preservation, storage, transport, processing etc.) as well as by insufficient quality assurance of diagnostic practice. This allows using compromised patients’ samples with post c ...

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 ...

Integrated DEsign and AnaLysis of small population group trials (IDEAL)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Apr 30, 2017,

There exist more than 7000 rare diseases worldwide and the European Society of Paediatric Oncology stated that 75% of rare diseases affect children and 30% of rare disease patients die before the age of five. Usual statistical methods for proving efficacy and safety of therapies fail to provide cost-efficient and reliable results in small populations. There is a pressing need to integrate a broad ...

"FLUTCORE will develop a novel universal influenza A virus (IAV) vaccine based on the tandem core vaccine platform. Recent influenza pandemics have emphasized the urgent need for better vaccines that are reactive with multiple IAV subtypes and that are no longer dependent on intimate knowledge of the prevalent virus. We propose to replace the existing seasonal IAV vaccine with a virus like particl ...

In clinical studies, proteomics and transcriptomics allow the comparison of samples from different patients and hold special promise for the discovery of novel biomarkers and the development of “personalized medicine” approaches. Yet, translating recent discoveries into daily medical practice takes time and despite intensified researchers’ interest and investments, the rate of introduction of nove ...
