The problem: finding the right patient for the right treatmentDespite a large and growing disease burden in osteoarthritis (OA), many pharmaceutical companies have de-emphasized or even abandoned OA drug development due to perceived hurdles. Crucial in this is the lack of appropriate outcome measures that can robustly identify patient benefit from a specific therapy. The lack of specific and sensi ...

Clonidine for Sedation of Paediatric Patients in the Intensive Care Unit (CloSed)

Date du début: 1 déc. 2013, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2018,

The majority of critically ill children admitted to Paediatric Intensive Care Units (PICU) will require sedation and analgesia which is commonly achieved with a combination of an benzodiazepine and an opioid. However, these agents have a significant side-effect profile, including tolerance, withdrawal and respiratory/circulatory depression. Clonidine is commonly used for sedation in PICU and recom ...

Survival rates after childhood cancer now reach nearly 80% in developed European countries as a result of more effective therapies and better supportive care, leading to a steady increase in the number of survivors in the population. However, the treatments that have improved survival are harsh and cause serious side-effects that can greatly impact survivors’ quality of life in the long term. The ...

Ewing Sarcomas (ES) are fatal, rare bone cancers particularly affecting young people. About 60% of patients achieve long term survival with current treatment but there has been no improvement in this proportion for 25 years. Treatment is unsuccessful because chemotherapy fails to prevent the development of, or to effectively treat established, metastases. In addition, of the 600 new cases of ES o ...

DESIRE will focus on epileptogenic developmental disorders EDD, i.e. early onset epilepsies whose origin is closely related to developmental brain processes. A major cause of EDD are malformations of cortical development (MCD), either macroscopic or subtle. EDD are often manifested as epileptic encephalopathies (EE), i.e. conditions in which epileptic activity itself may contribute to severe cogni ...

MicroRNAs in the Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention of Epilepsy (EPIMIRNA)

Date du début: 1 sept. 2013, Date de fin: 31 août 2018,

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 ...

GAbapentin in Paediatric Pain (GAPP)

Date du début: 1 juil. 2013, Date de fin: 30 juin 2017,

Chronic pain is estimated to affect 15-20% of children with varying disabilities. Due to the paucity of clinical information and appropriate medicinal products, in clinical practice paediatric patients are often under-treated causing profound impact on their QoL.To date, opioids, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), antidepressants and anticonvulsants are used to treat pain, but only few ...

Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area (OPERRA)

Date du début: 1 juin 2013, Date de fin: 31 mai 2017,

"Within the OPERRA project, it is proposed that the MELODI Association, as a well-advanced network, takes the lead in establishing the necessary structures able to manage the long-term European research programmes in radiation protection, also taking advantage of the valuable experience gathered through the DoReMi network of excellence. Whilst in fields adjacent to low-dose risk research (radioeco ...

BeTheCuRE (BTCURE)

Date du début: 1 avr. 2011, Date de fin: 31 mars 2017,

BTCure is based on the recognition that RA is a heterogeneous disease where a major subset involves adaptive immunity, and that animal models have to develop the line with the different subsets of the human diseases in order to be optimally used for drug discovery and drug evaluation. Our aim is to develop an understanding of the early process in human arthritis subsets and the animal models that ...

The consortium led by UKER and EuroHYP, the European Stroke Research Network for Hypothermia, proposes a large, multicentre clinical trial which will assess mild hypothermia as a novel treatment for ischemic stroke.Stroke is the second cause of death world-wide and the second cause of lost disability-adjusted life years in high-income countries. Stroke incidence rises exponentially with age, so it ...

An ideal intervention in a chronic inflammatory disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) would be a preventive one. In order to develop preventive strategies and therapies two key developments need to occur: (1) Biomarkers need to be identified that can be used to predict an individual’s risk of developing RA. (2) Modifiable disease mechanisms need to be identified and characterized in the early ...

DEferiprone Evaluation in Paediatrics (DEEP)

Date du début: 1 janv. 2011, Date de fin: 31 août 2016,

"β-thalassaemia major is one of the most severe forms of chronic congenital anaemia. The recommended treatment consists in regular blood transfusions combined with chelating therapy to remove harmful iron accumulation in the body. The use of deferoxamine, the first chelating agent only available for subcutaneous administration is limited due to toxicity and the lack of compliance, despite its sat ...

Systems biology towards novel chronic kidney disease diagnosis and treatment (SysKID)

Date du début: 1 janv. 2010, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2014,

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects up to 10% of the population. Besides eventual progression towards end stage renal disease CKD impacts the patient’s quality of life by causing serious comorbidities including cardiovascular complications and bone metabolism disorders. On the everyday clinical level early stage diagnosis and tailored treatment of CKD are still inadequate. In addition, CKD seems ...

Persistence of allergic sensitization (PAS)

Date du début: 1 déc. 2009, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2014,

"Allergic disorders are dramatically increasing in the western world over the past several years. Allergies are inappropriate immune responses directed against harmless environmental antigens. Upon primary allergen encounter B cells are induced to differentiate into IgE producing plasma cells. Mast cells and basophils are then sensitized by binding of allergen-specific IgE molecules to the high-af ...

Influence of protein prenylation and its modulation on the immune system (Pren-IBD)

Date du début: 1 août 2012, Date de fin: 31 juil. 2014,

Prenylation is a postranslational process leading to changes in protein structure due to the incorporation of a lipidic moiety that significantly modifies their physicochemical properties and their behaviour. Prenylation is therefore a crucial step for key cell processes, such as interaction between proteins, cell and differentiation, cytoskeletal function and vesicular trafficking. The modificati ...

ADIPOSE DERIVED STROMAL CELLS FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS (ADIPOA)

Date du début: 1 janv. 2010, Date de fin: 30 juin 2014,

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease for which no efficient therapy is available. The ADIPOA consortium has previously shown that intraarticular injections of stromal cells prevents OA in two different models, but the mechanisms of this chondroprotective effect remains unknown, and the activation of cartilage derived endogenous stem cells is suspected. The participants have experien ...

"Cell therapy can be defined as the transplantation of living cells for the treatment of medical disorders. Three different principles underlie the increasing interest in cell therapy. 1. Transplanted cells used as an “active drug” 2. Transplanted cells used to replace damaged and degenerated tissue. 3. Cells used as a drug delivery vehicle. Promising results have been obtained in pre-clinical and ...

"GENINCA will address two tumor entities, for which we have good access to pre-malignant lesions and in which genomic instability is a common feature: colorectal and liver cancer. Colorectal cancer amounts to 13.2% of all incident cases of cancer, the second most common form of cancer, surpassed only by lung cancer (13.3%). Liver cancer accounts for about 2% of total cancers, however, the most com ...
