Project description

The central hypothesis of the Predicta project is that repeated, acute infection-mediated events may reprogram the innate, adaptive or regulatory immune responses to predipose towards a chronic inflammation pattern.

The role of specific agents will be sought in order to develop innovative diagnostics for predicting disease chronicity, as well as interventions that may delay or prevent disease progression/persistence.
