EuCARE: European Cohorts of Patients and Schools to Advance Response to Epidemics
Coordinated by Euresist Network, 22 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.
INBIOMEDvision was a Coordination and Support Action aiming to promote Biomedical Informatics (BMI) by means of the permanent monitoring of the scientific state-of-the-art and the identification of common grounds and potential synergies between current Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics approaches...
