Final Report - FAD (Fighting Aneurysmal Diseases)

Project ID: 200647
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the final report for the FAD project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). FAD aimed to enhance the understanding of the mechanism of dilation remodelling in the progression of aneurysm toward rupture, from molecules and cells, in order to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools in this disease, linked or not to aging. It limited its field of investigations to aneurysms of the aorta in human, including both aneurysms of the abdominal aorta (AAA) of atherothrombotic origin and aneurysms of the thoracic ascending aorta (TAA) of non-atheromatous origin.

The report includes an executive summary mainly covering the project general context and aim, as well as the consortium activities. It goes on explaining its context in terms of epidemiology, pathophysiology and then outlines its objectives in further detail. The objectives and achievements of each work package are also presented. Finally, it covers the results' potential impact and the main dissemination and exploitation activities.
