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.

How digital technologies can play a vital role for the preservation of Europe’s cultural heritage

For a continent as culturally rich and diverse as Europe, making sure that valuable cultural assets are available for future generations to enjoy and be inspired by is a major public policy goal. And, as is the case with almost all aspects of modern life, digital technologies are offering solutions to power cultural heritage efforts through the 21st century. In this CORDIS Results Pack, we discover the numerous digital innovations developed by 12 EU-funded projects, with total funding of EUR 33 million, that help to ensure the preservation of Europe’s precious cultural heritage.

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.

Let there be light – and lots of it – for easy biomolecule detection

Fluorescent probes that light up in the presence of target molecules are like beacons in the night. EU-funded research has made nanoparticle probes so bright they could potentially be detected with a smartphone.
