"Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing"

Responding to the challenge of an aging population, research and innovation (R&I) under Horizon 2020 is an investment in better health for all.

R&I under Horizon 2020 also contributes to the sustainability of health and care systems.

Call
Stratified host-directed approaches to improve prevention, treatment and/or cure of infectious diseases
Description of call
"Stratified host-directed approaches to improve prevention, treatment and/or cure of infectious diseases"
Despite major advances in development of new drugs and vaccines against infectious diseases, many of the therapies and preventive measures do not result in the expected favourable health outcomes for various reasons.  A promising avenue to overcome treatment failure in infectious diseases is to develop novel therapeutic or preventive approaches on the basis of specific factors identified in the host or the host-pathogen interaction. This approach provides the basis for stratification of individuals based on these characteristics and tailor the treatment or the preventive measure accordingly. Proposals should test emerging concepts in drug and/or vaccine development in order to address the problem of antimicrobial drug resistance and to optimize therapeutic, curative or preventive measures against infectious diseases of major concern for Europe.
