Development and disease of the renal tract (RENALTRACT)

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2019,

The renal tract (kidneys, the ureters, bladder) is a complex organ system crucial for maintaining the body homeostasis. This organ system arises from different precursor pools through a complex program of patterning, differentiation and morphogenesis in embryonic development. Alteration of this program leads to renal tract malformations (RTM) that are incompatible with a healthy life. While some o ...

65,000 aortic valve replacements (AVR) are performed in Europe each year to treat acquired and congenital aortic valve diseases. In affected patients, mortality without AVR is extremely high and 50 % die within 2 years. Current AVR options are, however, limited for young patients - especially female patients - and those unwilling to accept life-long medical anticoagulation with its inherent risks. ...

"The continuous migration of immune cells to lymph nodes (LN) is of utmost importance for the induction of both protective immunity as well as immunological tolerance. Despite this pivotal role, little is known regarding migration paths and the molecular cues regulating homing of immune cells that arrive via afferent lymphatic vessels to LN. This conspicuous lack of knowledge is primarily due to p ...

In renal allograft recipients, 10-year graft survival has not improved over the past decades. Histological examination of graft biopsies has long been the gold standard to confirm graft injuries, but biopsies are invasive and histological grading is not very robust. There is thus a need for robust, non-invasive methods to predict and diagnose acute and chronic graft lesions, to improve patient tre ...

Chronic liver disease can progress to cirrhosis, with death due to liver failure and cancer. Cirrhosis prevalence in the EU is 0.5%-1%. However, development of therapies that prevent progression to cirrhosis is hampered by the lack of a sensitive, non-invasive method to quantify fibrosis or fibrosis progression (fibrogenesis). Liver biopsy 1) is risky, 2) shows high sampling variability, and 3) is ...
