EMRP Health HLT07 MeDD Metrology for drug delivery Measuring drug flow rate: Improving the safety and efficiency of drug delivery completed 2011
EMRP Health HLT09 MetrExtRT Metrology for radiotherapy using complex radiation fields Improving radiotherapy dose: Ensuring radiotherapy treatment meets International requirements Jean Marc Bordy completed 2011
EMRP Health HLT10 BiOrigin Metrology for biomolecular origin of disease Measurements in molecular medicine: First design principles for molecular medicine Andre Henrion completed 2011
EMRP Health HLT11 MetroMRT Metrology for molecular radiotherapy Controlling molecular radiotherapy: Validating the methods used for more targeted therapies Vere Smyth completed 2011
EMRP Health HLT08 INFECT-MET Metrology for monitoring infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and harmful micro-organisms Detecting and monitoring infectious disease: Improving disease management Carole Foy completed 2011
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J02 Breath analysis Breath analysis as a diagnostic tool for early disease detection Early disease detection is getting increased attention in the medical sector. In early stages, many diseases know little or no suffering at all, and the prospects of curing are much better. Early disease detection can literally mean the difference between life and death. Adriaan van der Veen completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J04 Regenmed Metrology on a cellular scale for regenerative medicine New and innovative forms of therapies, based on stem cells and tissue engineered medical products offer the hope of developing customizable implantable artificial tissue to overcome shortages of transplant organs and revolutionize injury and disease treatment. The project developed internationally accepted measurement technologies and standards to overcome major difficulties such as the scale up from lab to commercial scale production, predicting the long-term behaviour of products and satisfying regulators of the safety of the products. Paul Tomlins completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J06 Brachytherapy Increasing cancer treatment efficacy using 3D brachytherapy Brachytherapy (BT) is a radiotherapy technique in which small encapsulated radioactive sources are placed inside or in close proximity to the treatment volume, delivering a high dose to the tumour at small distances while sparing the surrounding tissue. About 100 000 patients per year are treated in the European area with BT (about 10% of radiotherapy treatments). Maria Pia Toni completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J07 EBCT External Beam Cancer Therapy In the European Union there are about 2.3 million cancer incidents every year. In terms of the number of deaths caused per year, cancer ranges second in the European mortality statistics. Given the massive extent of the cancer threat, decisive measures are required to improve cure rates. Ulrike Ankerhold completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J10 TRACEBIOACTIVITY Traceable measurements for biospecies and ion activity in clinical chemistry Traceable measurement results in clinical chemistry are mandatory in Europe. Within this framework, measurement methods and materials are evaluated which can serve as the required higher order reference points and which are linked with the SI as closely as possible. Reference and test laboratories in Europe profit from this newly developed system in a fast and efficient way. Bernd Güttler completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J.11 CLINBIOTRACE Traceability of Complex Biomolecules and Biomarkers in Diagnostics - Effecting Measurement Comparability in Clinical Medicine Stakeholders representing policy, diagnostic industry, academia and healthcare quality assessors, have highlighted the need for the further development of traceable reference measurement systems for complex biomolecules (e.g. disease state biomarkers and protein markers relevant for therapeutic intervention). Helen Parkes completed 2007
EMPIR Health 15HLT01 MetVBadBugs Quantitative measurement and imaging of drug-uptake by bacteria with antimicrobial resistance Innovative imaging techniques will support the development of improved antibiotics to beat resistant bacteria Paulina Rakowska in progress 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT03 Ears II Metrology for modern hearing assessment and protecting public health from emerging noise sources An innovative device and new measurement methods which has ensured more accurate diagnosis and treatment of hearing conditions. Christian Koch completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT08 MRgRT Metrology for MR guided radiotherapy New standards to enable safe, effective treatment of cancer with emerging MR-guided radiotherapy Jacco de Pooter completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15SIP03 InfusionUptake Standards and e-learning course to maximise the uptake of infusion and calibration best practices Best practice guidance for multi-infusion pumps will support better treatment outcomes and reduced dosing errors Menne Schakel completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT04 NeuroMet Innovative measurements for improved diagnosis and management of neurodegenerative diseases Innovative techniques helped clinicians monitor disease progression and treatment success for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases Milena Quaglia completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT05 PerfusImaging Metrology for multi-modality imaging of impaired tissue perfusion New standards and tools will validate emerging techniques to identify those at risk of cardiovascular disease. Tobias Schäffter in progress 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT06 MRTDosimetry Metrology for clinical implementation of dosimetry in molecular radiotherapy A suite of measurement resources to support clinics to implement individual dose planning for patients Andrew Robinson completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT07 AntiMicroResist Novel materials and methods for the detection, traceable monitoring and evaluation of antimicrobial resistance New test methods will help clinicians effectively target treatments in the ongoing fight against antimicrobial resistance Jim Huggett completed 2015
EMPIR Health 15HLT09 MetAMMI Metrology for additively manufactured medical implants Quality control methods will facilitate production of high-quality, low-cost customised medical devices. Anne-Francoise Obaton in progress 2015
