Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 3rd most common cancer in Europe, and with approximately 200,000 deaths per year, it remains the 2nd most common cause of cancer death. More than half of all CRC patients develop distant metastases and have 5-year overall survival (OS) of less than 5% because of ineffective treatments. Increased understanding of cancer biology, coupled with the implementation of “omi ...

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a common fatal inherited disease with a frequency of 1 in 2500 live births, affecting approximately 36,000 (0.737/10,000) people in the EU. Chronic bacterial pulmonary infection leading to an irreversible decline in lung structure and function is the main cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with CF, with more than 95% of deaths due to respiratory failure. Pseudomon ...

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 ...

Over 30 million Europeans are blind or visually impaired, leading to reduced quality of life and a tremendous loss of productivity in society. Corneal blindness is the second largest cause of blindness globally and while treatable, millions remain unnecessarily blind due to issues of access to transplantable tissue, lack of standardized treatments, and the lag in translating new regenerative medic ...

DC-based immunotherapy to treat Malignant Mesothelioma (H2020MM04)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Asbestos is one of the major occupational carcinogens. The European Union has an extensive history of protecting workers and consumers against asbestos and even adopted a resolution 2012/2065(INI) ‘on asbestos related occupational health threats and prospects for abolishing all existing asbestos’ last year. Although asbestos is banned, it is still massively present in the built environment. Millio ...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in high-income countries. Invasive coronary angiography (ICA) is the reference standard for the diagnosis of CAD and allows immediate therapy. However, only 40% of patients undergoing ICA actually have obstructive CAD and ICA has relatively rare but considerable risks. Coronary computed tomography (CT) is the most accurate diagnostic test ...

The MYASTERIX project will advance a therapeutic vaccine candidate (designated orphan drug) indicated for the autoimmune disease myasthenia gravis (MG) to clinical proof of concept studies. MG is caused by T cell dependent antibodies that bind to and deplete acetylcholine receptors (AChR) at neuromuscular junctions causing muscle weakness by interfering with neuromuscular transmission and junction ...

Cancer Vaccine development for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HepaVac)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

"Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary liver cancer and accounts for about 6% of all new cancer cases worldwide. Given the lack of available effective treatments, the overall prognosis for HCC patients is poor, with a dismal 5-year survival of 5-6%. The main goal of this proposal is to develop a therapeutic cancer vaccine aiming at improving clinical outcome in early-stage HCC ...

The QuIC-ConCePT consortium has 2 objectives: 1.(90% of resource, WP2-5) to qualify 3 specific imaging biomarkers (IBs) of tumour cell proliferation, apoptosis, and necrosis, to allow drug developers to demonstrate reliably modulation of these pathologic processes in tumours in patients in realistic trials. Our vision for January 2016 is that drug developers can incorporate these IBs for decision- ...

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 ...

More than 14 million Europeans suffer from heart failure (HF), of which more than 50 % have HF with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) (HFPEF, “diastolic heart failure”). HFPEF is the only cardiovascular disease with increasing prevalence and incidence, affecting 10-20% of the elderly and contributing substantially to hospitalizations of elderly HF patients. Currently, no medic ...

"Urinary Incontinence (UI) affects around 10% of the population (more than 70 Million people in the EU) and unfortunately - due to the aging population - is an increasing cause of impaired quality of life. The most common cause of UI is called the Overactive bladder syndrome (OABS) of which the underlying complex bio-molecular mechanisms are poorly understood. Many distinct tissues (nervous system ...
