Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability, leading to great personal suffering to victim and relatives, as well as huge direct and indirect costs to society. Strong ethical, medical, social and health economic reasons therefore exist for improving treatment. The CENTER-TBI project will collect a prospective, contemporary, highly granular, observational dataset of 5400 p ...

Targets and biomarkers for antiepileptogenesis (EPITARGET)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2018,

Epilepsy is a devastating condition affecting over 50 million people worldwide. This multidisciplinary project is focused on the process leading to epilepsy, epileptogenesis, in adults. Our main hypothesis is that there are combinations of various causes, acting in parallel and/or in succession, that lead to epileptogenesis and development of seizures. Our central premise and vision is that a comb ...

Labeling of Enalapril from Neonates up to Adolescents (LENA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2018,

Children are often treated as small adults—not as the special patients they are. Regulations exist to encourage the development of drugs and formulation for children. However, off-patent drugs are often administered to children without appropriate formulations or systematic investigations. Therefore, the paediatric use marketing authorisation (PUMA) has been designed.The EMA Paediatric Working Par ...

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 ...

Epilepsy is a major burden for patients and health systems worldwide. It is a common chronic neurological disorder affecting people of all ages, and the shortfall in existing treatments means that 30% of patients continue to suffer uncontrolled seizures. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are a recently-discovered, network-level layer of gene expression regulation that controls protein levels of entire signaling p ...

Europe is confronted by a demographic challenge as a decreasing work force has to support an increasing elderly population. The economic risk implied by this burden could be addressed by efforts to achieve an increase in Healthy Life Years. One key element would be to ensure unrestricted mobility for especially the elderly, allowing them to stay at work for longer. Irreversible joint deterioration ...

Degeneration of cartilage is a major cause of chronic pain, lost mobility and reduced quality of life for millions of European citizens. From a clinical point of view treatment to achieve cartilage regeneration (hyaline) and not only repair (fibrous) remains a great challenge. No clinical therapy is available that leads to healing of cartilage defects.Current cartilage implants cannot establish th ...

European Lead Factory (EUC²LID)

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

The European Lead Factory concept proposed by the EUC2LID Consortium relates to the discovery of novel small molecule candidates to serve as starting points for subsequent optimization to either drug candidates or high-quality pharmacological tools for the experimental validation of targets. The concept intends to bridge academic and applied research interests. The European Lead Factory will provi ...

Systems medicine of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (SYSMEDIBD)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2017,

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a major health problem with severe co-morbidities, requiring life-long treatment. Oscillating processes, like biological clocks are well studied and modeled in a number of systems. Circadian rhythms are extremely important for optimal treatments of patients. Recently, the NfkB pathway has been shown to be oscillating. In this project, we will model NfkB oscillat ...

The European population of older people with multiple chronic diseases (multimorbidity) is increasing steadily in tandem with the rising population of people aged ≥ 65 years. Older multimorbid people are at high risk of polypharmacy (PP), inappropriate prescribing (IP), adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and adverse drug events (ADEs). PP, IP, ADRs and ADEs in turn cause excessive drug costs and excess ...

Assuming an annual birth rate of 10.25 births/1,000 population approximately 25,000 Extremely Low Gestational Age Newborns are born every year in the EU. Conservative figures estimate that approximately half of all these babies will develop low blood pressure and require treatment. However, no uniform criteria exist to define hypotension and the evidence to support our current management strategie ...

Engine Module Validators (ENOVAL)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

The ENOVAL project will provide the next step of engine technologies to achieve and surpass the ACARE 2020 goals on the way towards Flightpath 2050. ENOVAL completes the European 7th Framework Programme (FP7) roadmap of Level 2 aero engine projects. ENOVAL will focus on the low pressure system of ultra-high by-pass ratio propulsion systems (12 < BPR < 20) in conjunction with ultra high overall pre ...

Cardiogenic shock (CS) complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI) represents a major European health care concern with mortality rates between 40-70%. Approximately 70-80% of these patients present with multivessel disease defined as coronary lesions in more than one vessel. The clinician is faced with the decision to either 1) intervene only on the culprit lesion acutely responsible for the i ...

Disorders of sex development (DSD) are a conglomerate of rare diseases with an estimated incidence of 1: 4500. The causes of DSD are mainly disorders with gonadal dysgenesis, decreased androgen synthesis or function in XY males or disorders with elevated androgen production in XX females. Decision on sex of rearing is difficult in some cases as the prenatal androgen imbalances result in ambiguous ...

Despite dramatic advances in molecular and imaging technologies, there are currently no effective pharmacological treatments for the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Major obstructions to this include a lack of aetiologically-driven or pathophysiologically-accurate animal models; an absence of tests that indicate efficacy; and reliance of clinical trials on DSM/ICD10 categories wh ...

Donor T Cells for Immune Control (T-CONTROL)

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

Patients with high-risk hematological tumors can be cured by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). However, the main causes of failure of HSCT are infections, tumor relapse and over-shooting immune responses of the donor T cells to healthy cells and tissues of the patient or graft-versus host disease (GvHD). Therefore, this treatment is still associated with a high morbidity a ...
