Integrins are transmembrane cell adhesion receptors controlling cell proliferation and migration. Our objective is to gain fundamentally novel mechanistic insight into the emerging new roles of integrins in cancer and to generate a road map of integrin dependent pathways critical in mammary gland development and integrin signalling thus opening new targets for therapeutic interventions. We will co ...

"The previous literature has not been able to successfully explain why the loss of the certain family resources does not show as a weaker attainment. Neither the country differences in socioeconomic inheritance seem to reflect the institutional differences between them. We argue that these problems have followed from ignoring resource compensation. The lost capital (economic, human/cultural or soc ...

Allergy is the most prevalent chronic inflammatory disease, having great socio-economic impact. Chronic lifelong dependency on symptomatic drugs is an expensive reality for the vast majority of allergy sufferers. Allergen-specific immunotherapy is the only causal and effective treatment targeting the underlying immune mechanism in a more cost-effective way. Yet, long treatment duration and risk of ...

Personalised Prognostic Tools for Early Psychosis Management (PRONIA)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2018,

Affective and non-affective psychoses have a major negative impact on human society. They account for 6.3% of the global burden of disease and cost €207 billion per year in Europe alone, making them the most expensive brain-related disorders and even more expensive than cardiovascular diseases. This socioeconomic burden is largely caused by two core disease features: onset in adolescence and early ...

Studies have demonstrated the importance of CD73 in the spread of cancer. Overexpressed in numerous cancer types, this enzyme leads to the production of high amounts of extracellular Adenosine, creating an immunosuppressive microenvironment, and contributing to tumor proliferation and dissemination. Neutralizing its activity represents a highly potent and innovative therapy.Following on the recent ...

The main objective of this research proposal is to identify and elaborate those characteristics of ENM that determine their biological hazard potential. This potential includes the ability of ENM to induce damage at the cellular, tissue, or organism levels by interacting with cellular structures leading to impairment of key cellular functions. These adverse effects may be mediated by ENM-induced a ...
