Final Report - COME-IN-CARE (COmpound 21 and MElatonin in CArdiovascular REmodeling)

Project ID: 237834
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

Cardiovascular (CV) diseases are the major source of morbidity and mortality in the EU with annual costs of EUR 169 billion. The control of hypertension and prevention of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and fibrosis, which could interrupt the CV continuum, still remain insufficient world-wide.

This report summarises that the COME-IN-CARE project yielded important scientific results, suggesting novel means for CV risk reduction; boosted the fellow's publication output; provided him superior training and collaborative opportunity and substantially helped the fellow on his path to become an independent researcher. As such it did not only support the scientific progress but also the human potential in the EU as a prerequisite for the promotion of knowledge-based economy.
