Cartilage regeneration: a soon-to-be treatment option for chronic lower back pain and osteoarthritis?

Cartilage regeneration: a soon-to-be treatment option for chronic lower back pain and osteoarthritis?

In 10 years from now, patients with chronic lower back pain or osteoarthritis might see several new treatment options change their lives for the better. Although in their very early stages, tests performed on a new generation of drug delivery carriers show promise for inhibiting the tissue degeneration at the heart of these conditions.

Digital transition in water: Digitilisation to boost innovation in the water sector

Water is vital for life and the economy so as a society we must adapt water resource management to mitigate the effects of climate change, combat resource pollution and depletion, manage demands for water, address the water–energy nexus, and prevent degradation of ecosystems. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights 11 EU projects that will help dramatically improve the large-scale management, distribution, use and reuse of water.

New solutions to soothe chronic pain

Chronic pain effects an estimated 100 million people across Europe (approximately one in five adults) and has a devastating impact on the quality of life for many of those who are suffering. Although acute pain can usually be considered a symptom of disease or injury, chronic and recurring pain (defined as continuous, long-term pain lasting for more than 6 months) is actually a specific healthcare problem in its own right. It can occur anywhere in the body despite no obvious cause and in many cases doesn’t appear to have a useful function – in the worst cases, it can persist for months or even years and has traditionally been very difficult to treat.

3D printing of aerospace structures now 10 times cheaper

EU-funded engineers with the SPECTRAL project developed a new 3D printer based on fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology that speeds up the printing process and costs 10 times less than its existing commercial counterparts.
