A project funded by the European Union in the H2020 framework focused on nutrigenomics to find personalized solutions capable of improving the health of people, in particular, those suffering from chronic diseases.
The study will involve entities from the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Italy and Denmark.
The OAFI Foundation participates in this European R + D + i project “PREVENTOMICS” of nutrigenomics within the framework of the H2020 program.
OAFI has been chosen to be responsible for the dissemination of the results of the project in social networks and websites in order to raise awareness in the general population taking into account the demands of the patients. At the same time, we will collaborate in the task of creating communities that are familiar with the new concepts of nutrigenomics.
OAFI is a reference for the EU in this project in the translation and dissemination of the results, at the level of the general public and patients and represents a new challenge and recognition at European level of the OAFI Foundation and its patients ”
The Global Patient Perception Survey with Arthritis GOAPPS (from the Global Osteoarthritis (OA) Patient Perception Survey) collects and analyzes data to address current gaps in understanding the perceptions and needs of patients with osteoarthritis. The GOAPPS includes questions about: patient demographics; the impact of OA on the patient’s life; the perceptions of patients about their care pathways; quality of life of the patient.
It is an initiative of the OA Task Force on Osteoarthritis. The Working Group is directed by the OA Foundation International (OAFI, Barcelona, Spain) and the Arthritis Foundation (Atlanta, United States) and includes members of the Pan American League of Rheumatology Associations (North and South America).
The evaluation of the quality of life of patients with osteoarthritis of the knee is becoming increasingly important both in research and in clinical practice. To identify therapies and factors that affect and improve the quality of life in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, it may be possible to mitigate the clinical, economic and social burden of this disease.
OAFI, in collaboration with the Arthritis Foundation and PANLAR, has carried out a systematic review of the scientific literature that examines the impact on quality of life in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee to better understand the disease and improve patient management.
