ELF: Consortium member of two EU projects highlighted on World Asthma Day

The European Lung Foundation (ELF) highlighted two key EU-projects concerned with improving the lives of people with asthma on the occasion of World Asthma Day on 7 May. ELF is a consortium member of both projects.

The first project, UBIOPRED (Unbiased BIOmarkers in PREDiction of respiratory disease outcomes) is an EU research project to better understand the different types of severe asthma with the hope that this understanding will consider individual characteristics and make it easier to develop new medicines. This project involves scientists from universities, research institutes, the pharmaceutical industry and small companies.

The second EU research project, AirPROM (Airway Disease Predicting Outcomes through Patient Specific Computational Modelling) aims to bridge the gaps in our clinical management of airways disease, by providing validated models that predict disease progression and response to treatment. The project involves professionals and patients that will ´develop´ and ´use´ the technologies emerging from this project. The result could revolutionise the effectiveness of the treatment patients receive through personalising that treatment.
