Data privacy, data property, and data sharing: an interdisciplinary dialogue for post-pandemic transnational research
EuCARE is holding a two-day workshop discussing potential ethical and legal solutions to data access that would make biomedical research possible and sustainable in a post-pandemic future. The workshop has an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together lawyers, social scientists, epidemiologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, as well as associations of patients and students.
The seminar is hosted by the Brocher Foundation at Hermance (Geneva), Switzerland
Next: EuCARE POST COVID-19 Study at ICAR 2023
The first results of the EuCARE POST COVID-19 Study presented at the Italian Conference on Aids and Antiviral Research (ICAR)
The EuCARE studies on POST COVID-19 are also approaching the dissemination stage and a presentation (of the preliminary results) will be given at ICAR 2023 (Bari 14-16 June) titled: Long COVID phenotypes and association with SARS CoV-2 variants in the EUCARE-POSTCOVID study”.
A preview of the findings was given to the last "Research to policy meeting on POST-COVID condition" organised by the EU on May 31.
Next: EuCARE Schools study. First results presented at the European Meeting on HIV & Hepatitis 2023
7-9 June 2023
Schools closure and social distancing caused anger and sadness in students of all ages, but also teachers suffered and still don't feel safe. The trends of SARS-CoV-2 in autumn 2022 appeared to be driven mainly by geographical location, seasonal changes and overall population behaviour and not by school openings.
The Lolli methode under evaluation within the EuCARE Project looks like a promising support.
The first results of the EuCARE SCHOOLS cohort study are presented as a poster at the European Meeting on HIV & Hepatitis 2023 (Rome, 7-9 June 2023).
The schools participating in the EuCARE SCHOOLS study came together in the WeCARE for Schools trilateral event (Italy-Mexico-Portugal) on the 12th of May. Students, teachers and principals described their experience with the project and exchanged views.
Further to the enthusiasm to participate in scientific research, many students still worried about being a danger to others expressed relief and confidence in Lolli Methode as a children-friendly procedure for monitoring their infectious status.
Elisa, an Italian 18 years old student followed the event online and wrote a moving article on it, published on the OBESSU website. "Our experience was one of the worst of all Europe. Our school system was not prepared at all to face the issues brought by the pandemic", she writes, and: "Institutions still do not give the right importance to education and instead of focusing on how to prepare schools for epidemic emergencies, they prefer setting them aside."

The EuResist Network story on TropicalMed
The EuResist Network and all its history is now summarised in a cohort paper published on Tropical Medicine and Infectious Disease Journal:

EuResist was founded in 2006 with the purpose of developing a clinical decision-support tool predicting the most effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) for persons living with HIV (PLWH), based on their clinical and virological data. Drawing from its interdisciplinary vocation, EuResist continues to investigate the clinical response to antiretroviral treatment against HIV and to monitor the development and circulation of HIV drug resistance in clinical settings, along with the development of novel drugs and the introduction of new treatment strategies. Its major results are discussed in the paper.

Coordinated by Euresist Network, 25 primary universities, hospitals and ICT research centres are collaborating to provide robust, data driven evidence to deal with SARS-CoV-2 variants and COVID-19 epidemics.
How do SARS-COV-2 variants, coupled with other factors, influence the clinical course of COVID-19? Is there any vaccine or test escape related to variants? Do variants influence, and how, the spread in the school setting? Can we define a better testing and containment strategy in the school setting? What is the impact of containment measures, including schools closure, on pupils and teachers?
With the support of strong immuno-virological and artificial intelligence components, the study will take advantage of large hospital patients, vaccinated healthcare workers and schools’ cohorts in Europe, Kenya, Mexico, Russia and Vietnam to find an answer to urgent issues related to science and society....
CARE (Common Action against HIV/TB/HCV across the Regions of Europe) aims at analysing and addressing the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB) and hepatitis C (HCV) epidemics across Europe and Russia, by establishing new networks and consolidating previous cooperative actions between the European Union and the Russian Federation.
The MDR project (HIV multidrug resistance pathways in the EuResist Integrated DataBase) aims at estimating the prevalence and trend over time of MDR (multidrug resistance) in HIV patients, using descriptive statistics, retaining high value because of the large sample size and wide representativeness of the EIDB.
The INTEGRATE project aims at building and maintaining a large, curated collection of virological and clinical data to increase scientific knowledge on resistance to integrase strand transfer inhibitors (InSTI) and on the most appropriate use of this class of antiretroviral agents.
On Feb 4th 2019, our great friend and EuResister Andrea De Luca lost his life in a horrible car accident, at the age of 55.
One year has passed and still we miss him with incredulity and sorrow.
Among many other projects, Andrea joined EuResist as a key leader soon after its launch, devoting his energy, commitment and capability to the success of the Network. He was an extra lively, smart, passionate, and positive person, always ready to help and take new tasks.
His loss is a huge loss for us, for his patients, for his beloved ones, for the international research community.
Ciao Andrea, we'll always miss you.
