LAser DEvelopment of Nanotools for quantum-based THERapy

Project description

Lighting the way to better cardiovascular health

According to the World Health Organisation, cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally, claiming millions of lives every year. However, despite significant progress in prevention, diagnosis and treatment, we have yet to see a notable improvement in overall outcomes. The EU-funded LADENTHER project is working to change that by developing multicomponent nanoparticles with unique properties that can be activated with non-invasive radiation. Actions are targeted towards the dissolution of blood clots and cholesterol, both of which can cause circulatory problems and heart attacks, and the recovery of fatigued heart muscle. Successful in vitro studies of the nano-phototherapy approach are expected to pave the way for in vivo trials.
