Human stem cell applications for the treatment of hearing loss
ID: 603029
Start date: 2013-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Hearing impairment is the most frequent human sensory deficit and is mainly caused by the irreversible loss of neurosensory cells in the cochlea. The lack of human otic cell models represents a significant roadblock that has hampered the development of drug-based or cell-base...

European stem cell consortium for neural cell replacement, reprogramming and functional brain repair
ID: 602278
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Neurostemcellrepair aims at taking human stem cells through the final steps toward clinical application in cell replacement therapy for neurological disorders. PD will be taken as the prototypical disease because stem cell therapy is now close to clinical translation. Moreove...

Novel antifungals to treat resistant organisms
ID: 601963
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2016-06-30
Invasive fungal diseases are estimated to kill 1.5 million people each year. The incidence of mortality has risen significantly across the EU over the last 20 years due to an expansion of at risk patient populations. Given the obvious importance of these diseases it is perhap...

Platform for sharing best practices for management of rare diseases
ID: 305690
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
RARE-Bestpractices will develop a sustainable networking platform, supporting the collection of standardized and validated data and efficient exchange of knowledge and reliable information on rare diseases (RD). RD are characterized by low prevalence (EU – 5:10000 persons). T...

Towards Early diagnosis and biomarker validation in Arthritis Management
ID: 305549
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
An ideal intervention in a chronic inflammatory disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) would be a preventive one. In order to develop preventive strategies and therapies two key developments need to occur: (1) Biomarkers need to be identified that can be used to predict an...

Improving the organisation of maternal health service delivery, and optimising childbirth, by increasing vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC) through enhanced women-centred care
ID: 305208
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2017-02-28
Optimal, healthy pregnancy followed by normal birth is the ideal. Caesarean section (CS) doubles the risk of mortality and morbidity (hysterectomy, blood transfusion), and increases the risk of postnatal infection by 5, compared with vaginal birth (WHO Global Survey on Matern...

CAncer Risk and INsulin analoGues
ID: 282526
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
Several studies have linked the use of insulins to the risk of cancer, and it is certainly plausible that as a growth factor, exposure to administered insulin could stimulate neoplastic growth. However, the meta-analyses of randomized clinical trials comparing different insul...
