European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia Consortium (EPAD)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Background:The secondary prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia (AD) is achievable if we can identify individuals at risk of disease progression defined by biomarker evidence of AD pathology and no or only minimal clinical symptoms and engage them in a standing adaptive clinical trial, of the highest quality, testing multiple interventions. To achieve this, EPAD will also provide the analytical infras ...

DIabetes REsearCh on patient sTratification (DIRECT)

Start date: Feb 1, 2012, End date: Jan 31, 2019,

The overarching aims of the DIRECT consortium, consisting of 20 leading academic groups in diabetes and 5 EFPIA companies, are to identify biomarkers that address current bottlenecks in diabetes drug development and to develop a stratified medicines approach to treatment of type 2 diabetes with either existing or novel therapies.There is heterogeneity in who develops diabetes, the rate at which th ...

"Aging populations, rising costs and sustainable delivery of high-quality care are increasingly common concerns in all EU countries. PACE aims to perform comparative effectiveness research concerning palliative care in long term care facilities (LTCFs) in Europe. While a growing number of older people will require palliative care in institutionalized settings, palliative care has only recently beg ...

"Glioblastomas (GBMs) are malignant brain tumours and among the most aggressive human cancers. GBMs patients have an extremely poor survival rate due to a complete absence of adequate therapies capable of efficiently targeting GBM cells inside the brain. Recently, we demonstrated that GBM cells release pro-tumoural extracellular vesicles (EVs) into the bloodstream, which emerged as important inter ...

Dementia is a growing health problem with enormous costs to society: the costs currently equal 1% of the global gross-domestic product and a three-fold increase to 115 million dementia cases is expected by 2050. Addressing this grave human and economic challenge requires efficient solutions that do not exist yet: tools to detect and diagnose persons at an early phase, and interventions for delayin ...

Long-term effects of early nutrition on later health (EARLYNUTRITION)

Start date: Feb 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

Nutrition during early development has an important impact on later health, particularly through greater obesity risk, as demonstrated by FP6 EARNEST. EarlyNutrition explores the current key hypotheses on likely causes and pathways to prevention of early life origins of obesity (specifically adiposity) and associated disorders. We bring extraordinary expertise and study populations of 470,000 indi ...

"Our first goal is to develop a new tool to determine brain activity with a high temporal (< 1 msec) and spatial (about 2 mm) resolution with the focus on motor control. High density EEG (up to 256 electrodes) will be used for EEG source localization. Advanced force-controlled robot manipulators will be used to impose continuous force perturbations to the joints. Advanced closed-loop system identi ...

MOBILISING THE POTENTIAL OF ACTIVE AGEING IN EUROPE (MOPACT)

Start date: Mar 1, 2013, End date: Feb 28, 2017,

The starting point for MOPACT is the ambitious goals set by Horizon 2020 and the European Innovation Partnership Pilot Project on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIPAHA). Our response is ambitious too: we aim to provide the research and practical evidence upon which Europe can make longevity an asset for social and economic development. MOPACT will create a high quality, multi-disciplinary critical mas ...

Problem:The need for cost effective health systems in Europe is imperative in the context of an increasing demand for health care by growing numbers of elderly people and a shrinking working force. Many health care systems are changing and looking for mechanisms to ensure, measure and improve the quality of care. On the other hand it is unclear which models of care delivery are the most cost-effec ...

Europe is facing a rapidly growing threat from Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), which is undoubtedly associated with an unhealthy diet and a more sedentary lifestyle. Evidence is accumulating that gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) may be playing a role in this process. Thus it provides a significant opportunity for preventing future T2D. Not only is GDM prevalence on the rise, but intrauterine ex ...

EEG records electric potential differences from electrodes attached to the human skin. Although multi-channel EEG can be used to localize its underlying sources, clinical application of this technique in, e.g. epilepsy and stroke monitoring, requires long preparation time to acquire electrode position and head shape and is also hampered by the poor knowledge of in vivo skull conductivity.In the ER ...

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that cancer risk after exposures with doses comparable to the dose limits for occupationally exposed workers may be larger than assumed by ICRP in the derivation of these limits. The value of cancer risk from such exposures and its dependence on tissue, radiation type and individual factors is largely unknown. The innovative approach proposed here combines ep ...

The prevalence of obesity has increased steadily for the past several decades. The great public health burden of overweight and obesity requires effective intervention programs targeting energy balance behaviours (e.g. active transport, tv viewing, soft drink and snacking consumption). However, up to now the efforts to prevent overweight had disappointing effects. To better inform future systemati ...
