 Project objective

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a group of chronic diseases characterized by airflow limitations in the lung. COPD is a critical international health problem. It is estimated to affect up to 600 million people worldwide and by 2020 it will become the third most frequent cause of death. In Europe alone, COPD affects up to 10% of people (i.e. more people than breast cancer and diabetes) and it takes the life of around 300,000 Europeans each year. Up to date, COPD has no cure as current treatments fail to halt the long-term decline in lung function. They are only able to delay its progression. Those treatments however, are associated with a variety of side effects some of which can be acute and even life threatening. Thus, COPD remains a disease with a significant unmet medical need. In this project (acronymed AbCURE_COPD) we intend to carry out a set of necessary activities for the evaluation of a potentially groundbreaking approach for treating COPD. Our approach is focusing on antibody-mediated clearance of senescent cells which accumulate in tissues with age and contribute to multiple age-related diseases, including COPD. The goal of the PoC project is two-fold. (1) The first goal is to establish the technical feasibility of our idea by testing the effect of senescence-specific antibodies on COPD development and progression by implementing COPD mouse model we developed. (2) The second goal is to establish the business feasibility of our revolutionary approach by taking the necessary steps towards its commercialization, focusing on the creation of strategic alliances with key private sector companies. We firmly believe that with our approach we can significantly extend the health span and improve the quality of life of COPD patients. Equally important, our approach will pave the way for the development of novel treatment strategies applicable to other age-related diseases, such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases.
