  More research needed to fight multidrug-resistant TB

Photo of article One third of the world's population is infected with tuberculosis (TB) and despite valiant efforts to combat it, TB continues to pose a serious threat to individuals and public health around the world. In recent years the fight got harder as new strains of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) are creating a serious new threat. New research may have the answer to fighting this new strain of TB, but more research is needed to optimise the recommended treatment. The study was funded in part by the TB PAN-NET ('Pan-European network for the study and clinical management of drug resistant tuberculosis') project, which has received almost EUR 11 million under the Health Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

  EDEN project makes giant strides in vector-borne disease research

Photo of article Despite diligent efforts to eliminate diseases transmitted by animals, questions still run rampant about how these diseases are in fact spread. Enter the EDEN ('Emerging diseases in a changing European environment') project, which received more than EUR 11 million to catalogue, understand, model and map the environmental, economic and societal factors that help these diseases to spread. Coordinated by the Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement (CIRAD) in France, EDEN is supported under the 'Sustainable development, global change and ecosystems' Thematic area of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
