Julius Clinical Awarded Two EU Grants for Clinical Studies

Zeist, 01 August 2017. Julius Clinical today announced that the European Commission granted the consortiums working on both the HIT-Cystic Fibrosis and Convince projects with financial funding to conduct these highly important clinical studies. Julius Clinical is a proud partner in these projects and will provide the operational services.   

In the HIT-CF project, the aim is to bring personalised disease-modifying therapies to cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with ultra-rare CFTR mutation. These patients could otherwise never get access to such treatment. Once the unique concepts has been proven, the CF community can extend the  state-of-the-art methodology to all CF patients such that HIT-CF will impact the entire CF field.

This consortium aims to determine the best possible dialysis treatment by comparing the conventional guideline based haemodialysis treatment versus high-dose haemodiafiltration. This will be done by carrying out a prospective randomized controlled clinical trial. The study will deliver an answer to the question about which intervention gives the best value for money. As such, it will be considered a landmark study, and the consortium will be allowed  to publish an “end of discussion” paper.
