Final Report - CANCERDEGRADOME (Extracellular Proteases and the Cances Degradome: Innovative Diagnostic Markers, Therapeutic Targets and Tumour Imaging Agents)

Project ID: 503297
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the CANCERDEGRADOME project, which aimed to define new molecular targets for drug design, develop novel specific interventions based on thorough knowledge of the pathophysiological roles of target proteases and related molecules, and understand how and when to use such therapies.

The report reveals that a major legacy of the project is that we now know the full cast of proteases in humans and many other organisms. This knowledge is essential for a systems biology approach to understanding normal developmental processes, tissue repair and disease pathogenesis.
