PROTECTED aims to develop expertise and protective capabilities against Endocrine Disruptors (EDs). EDs and their mixtures are a modern day health concern leading to failing ecological systems, poor agricultural production and health effects such as obesity, cancer and infertility. While analytical methods have advanced enormously, focus has been mainly on synthetic chemicals, overlooking emerging ...

PARAGONE: vaccines for animal parasites (Paragone)

Start date: Apr 1, 2015, End date: Mar 31, 2019,

Helminth and ectoparasitic infections of ruminants and poultry have a huge impact on the biological efficiency of these vital food sources. Indiscriminate antiparasitic use has led to drug resistance across the globe. The main alternative to the dwindling supply of antiparasitics is vaccines. Here, in the PARAGONE project, findings from previous EU and other-funded projects on parasite vaccine dev ...

Seafood has been recognized as a high quality, healthy and safe food item. Yet, some seafood can accumulate environmental contaminants with potential impact on human health. Limited information is available for those without maximum limits set by authorities for seafood, like priority contaminants, biotoxins from harmful algal blooms and marine litter. In order to increase seafood safety to consum ...

CamCon aims to improve the control of Campylobacter in primary poultry production in various parts of Europe and thereby enable the production of “low-risk broilers”. The project places great emphasis on ensuring rapid and effective dissemination of scientific achievements to end-users, in particular the EU poultry industry. The consortium consists of 10 participants from seven countries represent ...

Food business operators must make daily decisions about food safety and quality, often based on limited scientific data, or full knowledge of the consequences of deviations for the consumer, due to the limited capacity to carry out analyses and risk assessments. This project will develop the necessary tools based on scientific evidence and predictive and probabilistic models to enable food operato ...

The oomycete family contains some of the world’s most destructive fish pathogens. In Europe alone, these microorganisms collectively account for multimillion-Euro losses annually in the fish farming industry. Saprolegnia parasitica in particular is a major problem in the aquaculture industry where it has been estimated that 10% of all hatched salmon and eggs succumb to Saprolegniosis. Until 2002, ...

"Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) started, 20 years ago, a devastating health and food crisis throughout Europe. Classical BSE is now under control as a result of the meat and bone meal ban. However, tonsil analyses suggest that there may be an alarmingly high number of asymptomatic PrPSc positive cases. Transmission through blood transfusion is another important concern, as are recent “atyp ...

VEG-i-TRADE provides platforms to identify impacts of anticipated climate change and globalisation on food safety, microbiological and chemical hazards, of fresh produce and derived food products. Control measures of managerial and technological nature will be developed in the supply chain of crop production, post-harvest processing and logistics to minimize food safety risks. The assessment of th ...

"Food Safety Objectives (FSO) and Performance Objectives (PO) are new criteria complementing the existing concepts of microbiological criteria and MRL for many chemical contaminants. However, to achieve these objectives it is critically important a harmonisation of food safety control procedures.BASELINE project intends to obtain the following objectives: 1) To review the sampling schemes currentl ...

Chemistry and Chemical Biology of Lipophilic Algal Toxins (ALGETOX)

Start date: Jun 1, 2008, End date: May 31, 2010,

"Improved methods will be developed for isolation of lipophilic marine algal toxins (azaspiracids, pectenotoxins, yessotoxins and okadaic acid analogues) and their metabolites from algae and shellfish. Derivatives such as labelled analogues will also be produced. These materials will be used in collaborative studies to perform toxicology, identify toxin mode-of-action, and develop improved or vali ...
