From the identification of genes and cellular networks in murine models of arthritis to novel therapeutic intervention strategies in rheumatoid arthritis (EUROME)

Objective

The research network, EUROME, represents Centers of Excellence in Europe where recent technologies in transcriptome (microarrays) as well as proteome analysis are applied to study with the use of transgenic and congenic animal models human autoimmune diseases primarily rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Susceptibility genes for autoimmune diseases are identified and their functions are determined. Targets for studying novel treatments are evaluated i.e. to stop neoangiogenesis in inflamed tissues. Gene and cell based intervention strategies are investigated to treat autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis). Common mechanisms that cause autoimmune diseases are determined. EUROM research leads to a genome-base individualized medicine.
