Optimizing a deployable high efficacy malaria vaccine (OptiMalVax)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2021,

A highly effective malaria vaccine against Plasmodium falciparum should help prevent half a million deaths from malaria each year. New vaccine technologies and antigen discovery approaches now make accelerated design and development of a highly effective multi-antigen multi-stage subunit vaccine feasible. Leading malariologists, vaccine researchers and product developers will here collaborate in ...

COMPARE aims to harness the rapid advances in molecular technology to improve identification and mitigation of emerging infectious diseases and foodborne outbreaks. To this purpose COMPARE will establish a “One serves all” analytical framework and data exchange platform that will allow real time analysis and interpretation of sequence-based pathogen data in combination with associated data (e.g. c ...

The TBVAC2020 proposal builds on the highly successful and long-standing collaborations in subsequent EC-FP5-, FP6- and FP7-funded TB vaccine and biomarker projects, but also brings in a large number of new key partners from excellent laboratories from Europe, USA, Asia, Africa and Australia, many of which are global leaders in the TB field. This was initiated by launching an open call for Express ...

Aggression is a basic physiological trait with important roles throughout evolution, both in defence and predation. When expressed in humans in the wrong context, aggression leads to maladjustment, social impairment and crime. Despite this, knowledge about aggression aetiology is limited and current treatment strategies are insufficient. Contingent to a subdivision into impulsive and instrumental ...

The AIDA project aims to answer the question of clinical effectiveness and optimal dosing of 5 off-patent antibiotics for infections caused by multiple drug resistant (MDR) bacteria in three randomized controlled clinical trials. In an era of increasing emergence of drug resistance (EDR) and lack of new antibiotics, old off- patent antibiotics are increasingly being prescribed to patients. However ...

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

Start date: 01 Feb 2012, End date: 31 Oct 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 ...

Advanced Immunization Technologies (ADITEC)

Start date: 01 Oct 2011, End date: 30 Sep 2017,

Vaccines so far have been developed mostly by following an empiric approach. To prevent and possibly cure unresolved and emerging infectious diseases we need to fully exploit the potential of the human immune system. Progress in science and technology makes it possible to achieve what was previously deemed impossible. The scope of this project is to produce knowledge necessary to develop novel and ...

BBMRI - Large Prospective Cohorts (BBMRI-LPC)

Start date: 01 Feb 2013, End date: 31 Jan 2017,

In recent years, biomedical research has crossed international borders in large, collaborative studies showing the value of multidisciplinarity and scale advantage. This has yielded valuable insights and some led to new and better medicines and treatments for diseases. However, disease-focused studies provide less insight in the real disease onset, the relative disease burden in the population, an ...

Biomarkers For Enhanced Vaccine Safety (BIOVACSAFE)

Start date: 01 Mar 2012, End date: 31 Dec 2016,

BioVacSafe is a concise consortium of selected academic, public, and SME participants used to co-working in industry-led projects, organised into focused Activity Cores to generate knowledge and tools to benchmark licensed vaccine reactogenicity, and create practical and generalizable guidelines and techniques to enhance immunosafety of novel vaccines from pre-development to post-marketing surveil ...

International child health programmes in low-income countries are justified in term of their impact on child survival. However, the effect estimates are usually calculated from performance indicators and assumptions about efficacy based on small-scale target-specific studies. There is little follow-up of how the programmes are implemented in real life.This approach is clearly not sufficient. Recen ...

However, at the Laboratory of Parasitology, Statens Serum Institut, we have developed an 18S PCR method, which avoids amplification of human DNA. This means that PCR products can be analysed using NGS technology and bioinformatics tools without spe ...

Vitamin A supplementation (VAS) and vaccines are the most powerful tools to reduce child mortality in low-income countries. However, we may not use these interventions optimally because we disregard that the interventions may have immunomodulatory effects which differ for boys and girls and which may interact with the effects of other interventions. I have proposed the hypothesis that VAS and vacc ...

Malaria vaccines are needed to reduce the unacceptably high burden of disease and death in particular in the lowest income countries. Malaria vaccines aim at interruption of the life cycle of the parasite Plasmodium falciparum by induced immune responses in the humans. Transmission-blocking vaccines (TBMV) specifically aim at an arrest sexual stage development preventing the generation of infectio ...

European Research Infrastructure on Highly Pathogenic Agents (ERINHA)

Start date: 01 Nov 2010, End date: 31 Aug 2014,

In the context of the emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases involving highly pathogenic microorganisms, European countries have to be well-prepared to face such threats. However, the Biosafety Level 4 (BSL4) capacity in Europe is not sufficient enough to cover the efficient development of diagnosis, prophylactic and therapeutics means against these pathogens. Moreover, there is no global co ...

Predicting antibiotic resistance (PAR)

Start date: 01 Apr 2010, End date: 31 Mar 2013,

"The aim of this proposal is to describe and predict the dynamics of antibiotic resistance development at the level of the drug target, the microbe and the host. That is, we want to generate the knowledge required to be able to connect resistance mechanism --> bacterial physiology and fitness --> bacterial survival within a host --> bacterial spread between hosts. To achieve this goal we will deve ...

"One third of the world's population is infected with latent TB, which therefore constitutes the largest reservoir for TB. In 5% of latently infected individuals TB will eventually re-activate, and it is believed that most new TB cases is indeed due to re-activation of latent TB. TB is a chronic disease, and during the long interaction with the host, the immune response against TB antigens tend to ...
