Heparanase inhibitors in antiangiogenic and antimetastatic cancer therapy
ID: QLK3-CT-2002-02049
Start date: 2002-10-01, End date: 2005-12-31
Inhibition of heparanase overexpressed by tumours, preventing not only the release and activation of angiogenic growth factors stored by heparan sulfate (HS) proteoglycans but also the disruption of the basement membrane and the extracellular matrix is regarded as a very promi...

Disregulation of endogenous steroid metabolism potentially alters neuronal and reproductive system development: effects of environmental plasticisers
ID: QLK4-CT-2002-02637
Start date: 2003-01-01, End date: 2006-06-30
Steroids not only regulate endocrine and reproductive systems, they also modulate neuronal development in the foetus and neonate and cognitive function in adults. ENDOMET aims to examine the effects of a range of endocrine disrupters (EDs), which are derived from industrially ...

Pathology and ecology of the genus clostridium in humans, animals and foodstuffs: identification, epidemiology and prophylaxis
ID: QLK2-CT-2001-01267
Start date: 2001-10-01, End date: 2005-09-30
This Concerted Action is intended to favour exchanges of scientific knowledge and technical know-how on the genus Clostridium, which cause similar if not identical diseases in humans and animals and food poisoning in humans. To do so five scientific meetings are planned with t...

Sustaining animal health and food safety in organic farming
ID: QLK5-CT-2002-02541
Start date: 2003-03-01, End date: 2006-08-31
In Europe, organic livestock production has experienced rapid growth in the past decade. Common EU standards for organic animal production were implemented only some 18 months ago (1804/1999). There is a strong need to harmonise the standards under widely different circumstanc...

Ciliates as monitors for environmental safety of gmo
ID: QLK3-CT-2002-02151
Start date: 2002-10-01, End date: 2005-12-31
One of the major concerns limiting the potential usage of genetically modified crops and organisms in agriculture is the potential risk for lateral gene transfer in the environment. While numerous studies have considered lateral gene transfer into gut bacteria, the transfer in...

Process development for microbial production of the bulk chemical 1,3-propanediol from glycerol water as a waste effluent
ID: QLK5-CT-2002-01343
Start date: 2002-12-01, End date: 2006-01-31
The aim of BIODIOL is to develop an integrated biotechnical process for the production of the bulk-chemical l,3-propanediol (PD) from glycerol waters by using directly the biological waste from biodiesel plants. To increase PD yield use of wastes from food industries as co-sub...

Placental uptake and transfer of environmental chemicals relating to allergy in childhood years
ID: QLK4-CT-2000-00279
Start date: 2001-03-01, End date: 2006-02-28
Increasing pollution and contamination of the environment with xenobiotics may be linked to the increasing prevalence of allergic diseases throughout Europe. The hypothesis addressed by this proposal is that maternal environmental exposure to xenobiotics during pregnancy trigg...

Cytogenetic biomarkers and human cancer risk
[PROJECT] CANCERRISKBIOMARKERS - Cytogenetic biomarkers and human cancer risk
ID: QLK4-CT-2000-00628
Start date: 2001-01-01, End date: 2004-12-01
The partners have previously shown that a high frequency of chromosomal aberrations (CAs) in peripheral lymphocytes is predictive of increased cancer risk, regardless of smoking or occupational carcinogen exposure. The present multidisciplinary project aims at clarifying the r...
