Final Report - EPIGENCHLAMYDIA (Contribution of molecular epidemiology and host-pathogen genomics to understand Chlamydial trachomatis disease)

Project ID: 37637
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the EPIGENCHLAMYDIA project, the aim of which was to accommodate the optimal environment to build and prepare a consortium to reliably determine the genetic predisposition to CT infection, to develop diagnostic tools that can determine individual's predisposition to infection and the risk to develop late complications, and to enhance knowledge of the CT-host interaction, in order to allow the development of novel tools for the detection and treatment of and vaccine development for CT infections.

The results of the EPIGENCHLAMYDIA project has been chosen by the international network Genome-based Research and Population Health (GRaPHint) as a best practice example for the development of innovative tools for diagnosis and treatment of Host genetic determinants of infectious diseases (HGDOID) for the benefit of population health. Images and photos are included.
