MicroRNAs in the Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention of Epilepsy
ID: 602130
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
Epilepsy is a major burden for patients and health systems worldwide. It is a common chronic neurological disorder affecting people of all ages, and the shortfall in existing treatments means that 30% of patients continue to suffer uncontrolled seizures. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are...

Genetic study of Common Hereditary Bowel Cancers in Hispania and the Americas
ID: 223678
Start date: 2009-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is common in both sexes, has relatively poor outcome and has no major avoidable risk factor. Recent studies have shown that common inherited single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can increase cancer risk. We have shown CRC risk to be associated with S...

PLANT food supplements: Levels of Intake, Benefit and Risk Assessment
ID: 245199
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2014-05-31
Plant food supplements, or botanicals, have high acceptance by European consumers. Potentially, they can deliver significant health benefits, safely, and at relatively low costs. New regulations and EFSA guidance are also now in. However, concerns about safety, quality and ef...

Impact of climate change on the transport, fate and risk management of viral pathogens in water
ID: 243923
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2013-03-31
The use of hydrological models to determine the effects of climate change on the variation in viral flux, and therefore in risk associated with viral disease, constitutes a novel approach to the management of water-related disease. Tools developed in previous EU Projects will...

Schistosoma Epigenetics - Targets, Regulation, New Drugs
ID: 241865
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2012-12-31
We propose to develop novel drug leads for the therapy of the major human parasitic disease, schistosomiasis, using a holistic approach that will enable us to progress from the cloned target protein to the lead compound and from epigenetic inhibitors to crucial targets. For t...

Do nanoparticles induce neurodegenerative diseases? Understanding the origin of reactive oxidative species and protein aggregation and mis-folding phenomena in the presence of nanoparticles
ID: 214547
Start date: 2009-02-01, End date: 2012-01-31
As the use of nanoparticles becomes more prevalent, it is clear that human exposure will inevitably increase. Considering the rapidly ageing European population and the resulting increase in the incidence of neurodegenerative diseases, there is an urgent need to address the r...

Plasmodium Vivax Infection in Pregnancy
ID: 201588
Start date: 2008-03-01, End date: 2012-08-31
Malaria in pregnancy has been recently prioritised by the EC 7th Framework Program. In response, we propose to carry out a cohort observational study in pregnant women in 5 P. vivax endemic countries, broadly representing most of the world's infections. The Indian and Papua N...
