   1. Introduction

Purpose of the booklet:

   The aim of this booklet is to help you find Research, Technology and Development (RTD)
partners for projects in the « Health » cooperative theme of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7).


   This booklet provides a special focus on Candidate Countries (CC; Croatia and Turkey) and
New Member States (NMS; Bulgaria and Romania). The scientific and technical expertise of this
research community is still not sufficiently well-known to the rest of the European Scientific
Community. The “SMEs go Health” project partners developed this booklet to highlight the
expertise and know-how, and to show how this enlargement of the European Union improves
the opportunity for building the best partnerships to achieve the ambitious objectives of an FP7
collaborative project.


   This booklet presents a list and profiles of the key-actors from these four countries, including
research-intensive SMEs, universities and other research organisations with the potential and
interest in RTD-collaborations. The profiles are shown by country and by activity. The booklet will
help raise the visibility of these key actors in the health sector at an international level, and will
help anyone seeking potential partners in this sector to navigate among organisations from CC
and NMS.

   2. Short presentation of the Health topic


Health is a major theme of the Cooperation Programme with a total budget of € 6, 1 billion over
the duration of FP7.

The objective of health research under FP7 is to improve the health of European citizens and
boost the competitiveness of health-related industries and businesses, while addressing global
health issues such as anti-microbial resistance, HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and emerging
pandemics.

Emphasis is put on translational research (translation of basic discoveries into clinical
applications including scientific validation of experimental results), the development and validation
of new therapies, methods for health promotion and prevention including promotion of child
health, healthy ageing, diagnostic tools and medical technologies, as well as sustainable and
efficient health care systems.

The Health Theme is comprised of 3 main pillars (“activities”):

1. Biotechnology, generic tools and medical technologies for human health
2. Translating research for human health
3. Optimising the delivery of health care to European citizens

These pillars are subdivided into specific areas that in turn contain research topics, for which
project proposals can be submitted in response to calls for proposals. A particular topic might be
funded only once in the whole FP7.

Description of      The research topics are: electroporation, electrofusion and electrotransformatiom; electrotransfer of
research            macromolecules through lipid membranes; electrical properties of biological membranes; electrochemotherapy of
activity:           tumour cells. Experimental Methods: Electroporation and electrotransformation methods, patch clamp, fluorescent
                    method for measuring of transmembrane potentials, radioisotope methods, determination of particle electrophoretic
                    mobility, DNA fragmentation, MMT test, FACS analysis. For more information see the website
                    www.obzor.bio21.bas.bg (List of selected publications).
                    The new tendencies in the protection of human health and particularly the defence against cancer diseases insist
                    on improvement of the instruments, the protocols of treating and the synthesis of new forms of anti tumor drugs.
                    Our research team realizes not only fundamental but technological aims as well. The final aim is to realize
                    purposive application of the cell electroporation into biotechnologies and clinic medicine. The leading idea is to

research             and electron transport in biological membranes of higher plant mutants. Alterations in structural organization and
activity:            electric properties of the pigment-protein complexes in higher plants on the efficiency of light energy conversion
                     are investigated in respect to environmental stress conditions – high, low and freezing temperatures, high light
                     conditions, UV, high salinity, drought, altered membrane fluidity. Another topic under investigation is the stability of
                     photosynthetic ensembles (reaction centers of PSII and PSI, LHCII) – their static and dynamic electric properties,
                     conformation and stability, towards abiotic stress.

          • molecular investigation on viruses and bacteria which represent a major threat for
            public health care;
          • molecular mechanisms of imunogenetics and histocompatibility in transplants of
            solid organs and stem cells;
          • major diseases of population: cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity,
            neurodegenerative diseases;
          • Increasing the knowledge on integrative biological systems of human being;

Description of     The Nanobiophotonics Laboratory is part of the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Consortium, a network of intra-
research           university laboratories at the Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
activity:
                   The laboratory develops an interdisciplinary research focused on the fabrication and self-assembly of noble
                   metal nanoparticles (colloids, nanocrystals and bio-nanoparticles) with the aim of enabling novel photonic,
                   spectroscopic and bio-plasmonic-oriented applications (molecular detection and identification, monitoring and
                   diagnosis in life sciences and environment), catalysis and photocatalysis, etc.

                   Our facilities are operative with standard methods of optical spectroscopy (uv-visible, Raman, IR, fluorescence) as
                   well as advanced scanning confocal Raman microscopy (Witec CRM200), confocal reflectivity and fluorescence,
                   localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR), dark-field microscopy, surface&8211;enhanced Raman
                   spectroscopy (SERS) and surface-enhanced IR absorption (SEIRA). We can use the Raman microscopy in
                   combination with electronic microscopy and atomica force microscopy (the setup will be installed in the near
                   future). Our research has also supporting nanofabrication (thin film deposition, reactive ion etching) and
                   characterization techniques (XRD, RMN, RES) from other laboratories.

Description of the             It is well-known that noble-metal nanostructures (Ag, Au) exhibit an enhanced optical interaction with
expertise:                     visible light due to the resonant excitation of collective electron oscillations, so-called localized surface
                               plasmons. On the other hand, noble-metal nanoparticles are attractive nano-objects in biology due to their
                               long-term stability and biocompatibility with proteins, antibodies and DNA.

                               We produce highly organized, regular arrays of noble-metal nanoparticles and other metallic
                               nanostructures with distinct optical properties and bio-chemical functionalities [1-3] and employ the
                               localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPR), surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and
                               surface-enhanced IR absorption (SEIRA) to transduce the biomolecule-nanoparticle binding events.
                               A scanning confocal Raman microscopy (Witec CRM 200) combined with an AFM module (to be installed
                               in the near future) is operative to identify and image chemical components in cells, thin
                               films, biopolymers, pharmaceutical and food.

Description of        Neuroscience activity in researched department is focused on two main objectives:
research
activity:             1. Tumor cells biology.
                      These means tumor cells growing and culture, studying of drugs, and other physical or chemical agents, effects on
                      tumor cells. The research department has a great number of facilities: Zeiss microscope – Axiovert 25, cells
                      incubator with CO2 flux, special recipient to ensure safety and sterile work environment, specialized employs, e.g..
                      A special mention must be done for human tumors bank. This hospital is the biggest neurosurgical clinic in our
                      country and has a great number of patients with brain tumors (about one thousand/year). We collected, until now,
                      several hundred of specimen tumors of different types.
                      So we can develop (as coordinators, or as partner) any project, which implies studying of cell tumors biology.

                      2. Neuroregenative medicine.
                      This direction has, also, two ways:
                      One way is cell stem technology, used to regenerate parts of nervous system through a neuronal specific
                      differentiating.
                      Another way (which is in a precocious stage) implies neuroblasts obtained by selective cloning of lab mouse and
                      differentiation of that in specific neuronal cells.
                      Our research department has also a tissue bank, so we can preserve cell stem line, or specific neuronal cells.

                               culture. So we can study, in vitro, the effects of a various physical and chemical agents on tumor cells.
                               We can study, also, cell stem differentiation into neuronal population with future possibilities to regenerate
                               parts of nervous systems.
                               A part of these activities we are able to apply in clinical field.
                               In conclusions, we could be partners neuroscience research projects because we have modern facilities,

Expected results for         We are able to be partners in any neuroscience research project for two main reasons:
your organisation:           1. We are the biggest neurosurgical clinic in Romania and we treat various nervous system disease:
                             cerebral tumors (several hundred/year), children with birth defects (spina bifidum, meningocelles,
                             encephalocelles), cerebral vascular disorders, e.g. from all over the country. So we have an impressive
                             casuistic and possibility of clinic application of research discoveries.
                             2. Recently we opened an Excellency Centrum in Neurosurgery with several modern labs unit. In this labs
                             we have all facilities we need for developing this project: cells culture facilities, human tissue bank, cell

Activities performed::                             Planned objectives of our Centre were: (i) to extend biomedical research at the
                                                   cellular and molecular level; (ii) to increase the international collaboration so as
                                                   to enlarge the scientific potential; (iii) to increase the visibility and international
                                                   recognition of the Centre; (iv) visits of scientists to the Centre and amplified
                                                   exchanges of researchers; (v) involvement in FP6 and (vi) to organize
                                                   workshops, minisymposia and advanced study courses for students’ education.
                                                   As planned, we had numerous visitors from many European countries. Their
                                                   lectures were followed by a small symposium in which our researchers
                                                   presented their work. The visits of our researchers to European Institutes were of
                                                   great benefit and an occasion for new contacts and collaborations. As a result of
                                                   our EOI application to EC, we were invited to participate in many integrated
                                                   projects and Marie Curie Action for FP6.
                                                   We organized in 2002, an international workshop “Cardiovascular dysfunction in
                                                   hyperlipidemia and diabetes”, focused on medical problems of great concern for
                                                   all European countries. The workshop was held jointly with the meeting of the
                                                   COST- Action B17, WG 5 “Cardiovascular Dysfunction”. Half a day was set apart
                                                   for a Panel discussion regarding the FP6, ERA and how to increase the visibility
                                                   of the Centre, moderated by a representative of the European Commission,
                                                   COST Cooperation.
                                                   The 150 prominent scientists (from 11 European countries and Romania)
                                                   participating at the meeting aimed to identification of the topics where Romanian
                                                   scientific expertise is complementary to that of the foreign laboratories, initiatives
                                                   for collaboration, designing a strategy for participation in FP6 and discussion
                                                   about means to increase visibility and cooperation. Annually, an advanced study
                                                   school attended by 80 students was organized. In the first two years of activity,
                                                   around 70 papers in international and national journals were published, and the
                                                   researchers attended 20 international and national meetings. Ten prizes and
                                                   awards were given to our researchers (many Ph.D. students). Based on these
                                                   results and achieved experience, we have reasons to believe that, the Centre
                                                   will achieve its ambitious aims and even more than previously.

Description of      The MediNET sentinel network program (including 100 family doctors all around the country) aims to a continuous
research            morbidity registration in general practice in Romania in order to collect representative data about the existing illness
activity:           pattern and about the diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive procedures in family medicine, important for research,
                    development of continuing medical education and health management. (www.medfam.ro/medinet2004).

                    We also developed a smaller network &8211; 20 family doctors in Timis County that also collect data from primary
                    care, but are more focused to improving and measure the quality of provided health care. We are working to
                    implement a quality system for primary care.

                    All data collected from primary care are analyzed by research teams.

Description of the           The National Centre for Studies in Family Medicine (NCSFM) is a non-governmental institution aiming at
expertise:                   improving quality of care in primary settings by: elaborating and implementing standards of care
                             (guidelines) and initiating adequate registration of morbidity data in family medicine (Sentinel Network).
                             Our first 5 guidelines address general practioners as well as patients needs.

                             We strongly support the right information and cooperation between GPs and their patients as the unique
                             way to induce efficiency and to enhance quality in Romanian health care system.

                             In the last years, the four regional centers of the NCSFM (Bucharest, Timisoara, Iasi and Craiova)
                             became centers of reference in Romania in the field of continous medical education. Also we just finished
                             a training of trainers programme, in which we prepared 60 new trainers for family medicine.

                             We have also good experience in using Internet for spread information for family doctors (Portal Medfam
                             &8211; www.medfam.ro and mailinglists)

                             Our members are trained in a 3 years program organised in a MATRA program (with the help of
                             Maastricht University) in the fields of research, education and practice management (1997-2000) and
                             NICARE (UK).

Description of          Our research team has designed and developed original animal models of autoimmune (allergic
research activity:      encephalomyelitis, rheumatoid arthritis, allergic hepatitis) and neoplastic diseases (melanoma and carcinoma).

                        We are engaged in research projects concerning the evaluation of known antioxidant compounds (silimarin and
                        melatonin) or novel therapeutical agents in tumor induced oxidative stress. The animals bearing tumor are treated
                        with chemotherapeutical agents (Doxorubicin, Cisplatin) that induce oxidative &8211; stress.

                        The on-going research project is focused on age-related processes studying the influence of melatonin in a rat
                        experimental model. The long-range objective of our research is to study the implication of melatonin in aging
                        &8211; related degenerative diseases (Alzheimer&8217;s and Parkinson&8217;s diseases).

                        During the last years the Animal Care Unit staff has participated, designed and fulfilled numerous projects
                        funded by the National Research Programs:
                        - The effect of immunotoxine treatment in murine EL 4 leukemia
                        - Laser induced therapy on solid lymphosarcoma;
                        - The influence of some immunomodulators on B16 melanoma;

Description of the     The Institute has an Animal Care Unit (ACU) with hosting and breeding facilities for over 1500 animals
expertise:             (C57B/6 and BALB/c mice, R Amsterdam and Wistar rats) in accordance with UE Directive 609/1986. We
                       have some transplantable murine tumors such as: B16 melanoma. Lewis Lung Carcinoma, Walker
                       carcinoma and Guerin epitelioma.

                       The technical staff of this unit is guided by two senior researchers with over 20 years experience in
                       laboratory animal knowledge. In addition to routine technical and animal husbandry skills the team has
                       developed and adapted to current use sequential multi &8211; assay protocols for a variety of pre &8211;
                       clinical settings.

                       Prior to human clinical trials, various potential new drug candidates were screened and optimized by the
                       mentioned research team. Animal studies were adapted to investigate the therapeutic and prophylactic
                       potential of different selected compounds. We have focused, especially, on: the immune modulatory
                       effects (in vivo activation, in vitro testing) and the anti-tumor efficacy (in vivo testing). Our basic research
                       expertise sustained by the animal facilities created the favorable premises to carry out, together with the
                       staff of Radiobiology Department, some toxicology tests: Mammalian Erythrocyte Micronucleus Test,
                       Unsheduled DNA Synthesis Test, Teratogenicity Test.

CROATIA

       Croatia (Hrvatska) covers an arc of territory from the Danube River in the east to Istria in
the west and down the Adriatic coast to Dubrovnik in the south. The borders of the country are
with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Hungary and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The
land area is 56 500 square km. Croatia has 4,5 million inhabitants. The capital is Zagreb.

Main bodies in the health care system
      Responsibilities in health care are divided between the state authorities and counties
(municipalities play little part in the health services).

       General hospitals and hospitals for chronic diseases, polyclinics and health centres,
sanitoria, home care institutions, emergency care units and public health institutes are all owned
by county authorities.

      Secondary care facilities include hospitals, sanatoria and polyclinics. Hospitals (84 in
1997) are divided into general hospitals and specialist hospitals. General hospitals have facilities
for obstetrics and gynaecology, internal medicine, surgery and inpatient paediatric care.
Specialist hospitals are organized around specific diseases, chronic illnesses or population
groups. In addition to inpatient facilities, hospitals also have outpatient departments providing
ambulatory services.

       Tertiary care is provided in university clinics, clinical hospitals and clinical hospital centres
that also engage in medical education and research. Those latest are owned by the Ministry of
Health. University clinics carry out the most complex activities in a specific branch of medicine.
These centres of excellence within their field have an obligation to develop their expertise and to
provide support to other health care institutions. Clinical hospitals are general hospitals with at
least two specialties at teaching hospital level. Clinical hospital centres are general hospitals in
which more than half of the units are at teaching hospital level, and which carry out university
education in over half of the teaching programme through faculties of medicine, dentistry,
pharmacy and biology.

National Health research Funding
        The substantial part of research activities in Croatia are financed by the state budget
distributed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports (MSES). The budget of the Research
Projects programme is the total amount of HRK126.4m (€17.3m) in 2005. 37,8% is decated to
bio-medical sciences (28.1%) and bio-technical sciences (9.7%).

       The Ministry of Health produces an annual national health plan containing clearly defined
objectives following suggestions from the Croatian Health Insurance Institute and from the
National Health Council. It includes:
     - Environmental protection plans- which is also adopted and partly financed by World Bank
        and it will develop from 2008.- 2012.
                                          Page 195 of 392
     - a programme for early prevention and treatment of intestinal carcinoma (“cancer
       prevention and control“).
     - A plan for prevention and treatment of diabetes.
     - A programme of early detection and prevention of breast cancer which is available to the
       whole population in their local surgeries.
     - A plan for improving AIDS prevention, and also wants to deal with patients induviduali as
       possible.

Research activities in Croatia are mainly carried out by the public research sector, which consists
of seven universities and 26 public institutes. Public research activities are dominantly financed
by budget resources allocated by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports (MSES) through
the two main channels: institutional funding and research grants. Government finances 77% of
university research and 79% of public institutes' research while the business sector finances a
small portion of university research (6.2%) and that of public institutes (3%).
The number of Medical Universities is 4: Zagreb, Rijeka, Split and Osijek and they are very much
involved in international cooperation aiming at improvment of national and regional Health care
system.Researchers from those universities have experience with FP and are also supported by
Ministry of science, education and sports.

       The business R&D sector includes 13 private scientific institutions, of which six are in-
house institutes affiliated with large industrial corporations. The majority of business research is
financed by business companies themselves (76%) while the government contributes to the
business sector with 21% and foreign investors with 3%.

     The most significant private research spenders on R&D used to be the PLIVA Institute in
pharmacy (now the GlaxoSmithKline Research Centre Zagreb).

Education
       According to the latest data, there are 3,232 Masters of Science, 5,780 Doctors of Science
and 1,982 other researchers in the Republic of Croatia. Industry and private companies employ
2,703 M.Sc.’s and 976 D.Sc.’s. (Data from the Register of Scientists, for employees of scientifi c
organizations, EZRA database, September 2006).
       Undergraduate medical education takes place at three medical schools in Zagreb and one
each in the regional centres of Osijek, Rijeka and Split. Those are very much involved in
international cooperation aiming at improvment of national and regional Health care system.
Researchers from those universities have experience with FP and are also supported by Ministry
of science, education and sports.

Experience with Frameworkprograme
         As of 1 January 2006, the Republic of Croatia became a full member of the FP6. From the
initiation of the Programme in 2002 until the acquisition of full membership, Croatia participated in
the programme in the status of a third country, and therefore had only limited access to funding.

      Within the programme, which relates to the period between 2002 and 2006, Croatia signed
about 100 contracts, based on which Croatian partners' activities were funded in the amount of
€10m. The major part of the approved funds went for the INCO sub-programme and for the
                                       Page 196 of 392
priority programmes Citizens and Management in a Knowledge-Based Society, Information
Society Technology, and Life Science, Genetics and Bio-technology in the Service of Health.

       Turkey is a big country with a total area of 814.578 km2, 3 % of which is on the European
   continent and the rest of the land on the Asian continent (is called Anatolia). The land has
   been settled since the Paleolithic ages (7000BC) and numerous civilizations have existed;
   Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantian, Selcuk and Ottoman. Turkey has a young population, almost
   70 million and the population is distributed between age groups as; 30% of the poulation is 0-
   14 years old, 64% is 15-64 years old and 6% is over 65 years old. The total amount of 0-14
   age represents the 17.2 % of the EU population. Turkey also has a high birth rate of 2.23
   which increases up to 3.65 in Eastern parts.
       There are also some other demographic indicators from year 2005 showing the general
   status quo of patients in Turkey.
   •   Total population growth rate         :13.8 per thousand
   •   Crude birth rate              : 20.4 per thousand
       Infant mortality rate         : 28.8 per thousand
   •   Life expectancy at birth      : female         72.7
                                     : male            68.0

                      plant materials and application of these extracts into food substrates are of interest to us. Isolation and assessment
                      of biological activities of natural compounds having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune modulating activities
                      are being conducted. Additionally, we want to cooperate with research groups and SMEs active in cancer studies to
                      further work on cytotoxicity and anticarcinogenic activities of these biologically active extracts and compounds.


                      Currently, we have two R&D project contracts with SMEs on developing functional foods. Efficient manufacturing of
                      functional foods requires a comprehensive approach that extends beyond an analysis of the beneficial biological
                      activity. This approach covers all the stages of the development and manufacturing: the stability of bioactive
                      compounds during processing and storage, development of delivery systems for bioactive compounds and
                      innovative technologies for nutritionally enhanced foods. In this concept, we are interested in metabolic processing
                      of such compounds in the body.

                      Additionally, scaling up activities from laboratory to pilot and industrial scales are in the scope of our research
                      theme.

Description of         Endothelial dysfunction is characterized by reduced vasodilation, a proinflammatory state, and prothrombic
research               properties. It is associated with some forms of cardiovascular disease, such as hypertension, coronary artery
activity:              disease, chronic heart failure. Reduced vasodilatory responses in endothelial dysfunction include reduced nitric
                       oxide generation and increased oxidative stress. The severity of endothelial dysfunction have prognostic value for
                       cardiovascular events. On Langendorf system, reperfusion on coronary arteries cause endothelial damage by
                       reducing Nitric oxide production . Urotensin ll and endothelin 1 is also released and cause vasoconstriction after
                       reperfusion injury. Nitric oxide donors may be protective for cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury.

your organisation:        MEDICAL INSTITUTION REGARDING MEDICAL NBC DEFENCE BOTH IN THE TURKISH ARMED
                          FORCES AND IN TURKEY. AS KNOWN, IT HAS BEEN ASSUMED THAT DEALING WITH THESE
                          AGENTS IS MAINLY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ARMY. SO, HAVING AN ADVANCED DETECTION
                          AND IDENTIFICATION CAPABILITY OF THESE AGENTS IS PRIMARILY ONE OF THE MEDICAL
                          COUNTERMEASURE THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN BY THE MILITARY MEDICAL AUTHORITIES.
                          THERE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED A LABORATORY WHICH WAS BASICALLY DESIGNED FOR
                          DETECTION. BUT, THIS LABORATORY MUST BE DEVELOPED IN TERMS OF BOTH EQUIPMENT
                          AND PERSONNEL QUALIFICATION AND SKILL FOR THE ANALYSES.

Description of           I have completed MSci on the area of exercise and nutrition metabolism in 2005. My thesis project was about the
research activity:       effects of conjugated linoleic acid with exercise on human lipid profile, body composition and insulin sensitivity.
                         Extent of this project we have investigated lipoprotein lipase activity as well.
                         After that I have spent last year in Australia in the Victorian Institute of sport as a researcher and I have
                         completed one year research internship at this place and awarded with certificate.

                         I am now doctoral student and trying to pursue exercise and nutrition research on the basis of healthier life and
                         community.

Description of   Marmara University is a state university that acts as a focal point for education, research, cultural and social
research         activities in the city of Istanbul. Marmara University is one of the leading universities that aims to give its students
activity:        the opportunity to acquire specialized knowledge and training in a wide range of related areas and they are
                 encouraged to develop their powers of observation, creativity and flexible thinking.
                 Being a university with an international perspective, the educational system of Marmara University is based on the
                 principle of creative teaching and participatory learning. Faculty of Medicine is one of the 13 faculties of Marmara
                 University and accepts 200 new students every year. The education period is six years apart from one-year English
                 language program which is run by the School of Foreign Languages. Students who are already proficient in English
                 are allowed to start their medical education if they succeed in an exam measuring their competence of the
                 language. The education language is English.
                 Marmara University Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology (MUPAI) has been in service since 1989. Today
                 with 2 professors (Isil B BARLAN and Nerin N BAHCECILER) and 1 instructor (Cevdet OZDEMIR), MUPAI take
                 care of allergy and immunology patients (age range 0-18 years) referred from other health centers and of self
                 admittance. MUPAI is one of the leading and international training centers for allergy fellowship
                 program. Curriculum is a three year program for fellowship in allergy. Currently 3 fellows take part in this training
                 program. One is from Bosnia-Herzegovina, one from Tanzania and one fellow is from Selcuk University, Konya,
                 Turkey. MUPAI is gaining importance in the training of new allergists for different cities in Turkey and other
                 countries. Up to date 10 allergists completed their training and enrolled in other clinics of the country. (Kocaeli
                 University, Kocaeli; 19 Mayis University, Samsun; Gaziantep University, Gaziantep; Marmara University, Istanbul; 2
                 state hospitals in Istanbul) and 3 current staff of MUPAI.

                 In addition, MUPAI has training program for PhD and masters of science (MSc) in the field of immunology. Up to
                 date, 2 PhD and 3 MSc students completed their trainings and currently training of one Msc student is in progress.
                 MUPAI has been in close collaboration with a number of universities, institutes and scientists from Turkey and
                 abroad (SIAF, Swiss Institute of Allergy and Asthma Allergy Research, Davos, Switzerland, Nebraska University,
                 US, Argentina, and Thailand, BMFZ, Philipps University of Marburg,Germany.


                 Formerly MUPAI had collaborations in a birth cohort study with.
                 Also MUPAI took part in collaboration with

                 Infrastructure:
                 In out-patient clinics of MUPAI, service is given on an appointment system. There are three rooms available for 4
                 days/week for this service. Weekly ~75 patients are seen in these clinics. On the other hand, for hospitalizations
                 MUPAI can use Marmara University Hospital&65533;s Pediatric Service. Emergency cases are cared in the
                 Emergency Unit of Department of Pediatrics. Additionally a unit for ambulatory service is available for daily
                 treatments. Our main patient group includes, allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema), food
                 allergies, drug hypersensitivities, urticaria and angioedema and other atopic conditions. Also immune deficiencies
                 [Immunoglobulin subgroup deficiencies, selective IgA deficiencies, common variable immune deficiencies (CVID),
                 severe combined immunodeficiencies (SCID) and other immunodeficiency states] are cared.

                 Follow-up and education of patients and their families for allergic diseases are held in our out-patient service.

                 MUPAI Laboratory facilities:

                 The aim of our laboratory is to provide a description of the molecular mechanism of allergic reactions and its
                 pathogenesis. The major research techniquies are cell isolation with automacs system, cell culture, isolation of
                 DNA and RNA, cDNA synthesis from PBMCs and tissues, Polimerase Chain Reaction, ELISA, microscopic
                 analyses of histologic slides. Our target immunological studies include antigen/allergen induced T cell activation ,
                 mechanism of immune tolerance, apoptosis of T cells in disease states. Beside this, our laboratory gives service to
                 Marmara University Hospital as a routine laboratory work for:
                 &65533; Skin prick testing with aeroallergens and food allergens
                 &65533; Pulmonary function testing
                 &65533; Bronchial provocation testing with methacholine
                 &65533; Nasal smear evaluation
                 &65533; Total eosinophil counting

                                                        probably are those whose need to increase the competitive edge is biggest.

                                      5. ABOUT SMEs GO HEALTH


“SMEs go Health” is a project co-funded by the European Commission (EC) out of Framework
Programme 6 funds. Based on the “SMEs go LifeSciences” initiative, its overall objective is to
encourage and assist SMEs and academic institutions to successfully participate in the “Health”
theme of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). This initiative started in February 2007 and will
last for three years. It gathers 29 organisations from across 27 countries in Europe or closely
linked to Europe.

The main activities of this initiative are:

   1. Awareness building and training of SMEs and academic institutions regarding the
      opportunities and rules of FP7: SMEs go Health project partners contact SMEs and
      academic institutions in their countries to provide advice on technical aspects of FP7
      project proposals and on best practice to ensure a good proposal and a sound research
      project. They also organise special international training sessions.


   2. Supporting SMEs and academic institutions in consortium-building through
      matchmaking facilities and partnering activities in order to foster RTD collaboration
      and research project proposal submission in “Health” themes of FP7. SMEs go Health has
      set up a specific on-line system that allows SMEs and academic institutions to register and
      search for partners from other countries who are interested to join a project funded by FP7.
      In addition, SMEs go Health partners use the network of partners to find project partners
      alternatively in case of no on-line available matching. Members of the project also organise
      special international partnering events.

   3. Improving the visibility of SME know-how and researchers’ expertise among the
      European scientific community, particularly the expertise of New Member States and
      Candidate Countries.

Contacts presented in this booklet are taken from the database on the SMEs go Health website
www.smesgohealth.org . The website and database can be searched free of charge. This
database is in constant evolution as new contacts register regularly.

In addition, the SMEs go Health website gives you other useful information about FP7 issues,
project activities, useful links, contacts of project partners in each country and access to the
database.
