  • EC biomedical and health research : Volume three : Advances in medical biology : Results of the fourth EC medical and health research programme


The EC was assisted in the implementation of the Fourth Medical and Health Research programme by four Concerted Action Committees (COMACs) and two working parties set up on the basis of methodological disciplines, all composed of scientific experts designated by the competent authorities of the EU member states. This book presents the final reports of the seventeen concerted actions supervised by COMAC-BIOLOGY. They relate in particular to the following fields of application: (i) standardisation of diagnostic procedures; (ii) application of new biological techniques to health problems; (iii) sharing of technologies and reagents; (iv) provision of special biological systems; (v) evaluation of effectiveness of measures aimed at health and health care improvement; (vi) collection, storage and dissemination of information. The book is divided into two parts, the first of which deals with age-related problems. The second part concentrates on environment and life-style related health problems.
