The main objective of the European project Immodgel is to find innovative solutions to the frequent adverse immune reactions following implantation procedures. For this purpose, the consortium will create a personalised, immunomodulatory system that will be adjustable for any implant, medical device or transplant.

The overall aim of this project is to clarify the mechanisms and identify nature´s own specific control points of regulation in these adverse reactions in order to be able to significantly improve the quality of hemodialysis devices and kidney grafts by applying these concepts of regulation in hemodialysis and kidney transplantation.

The aim of the HypOrth-project (hypoallergenic implant material in Orthopaedics) is the development of personalized implants that will last the patients whole life. Testing of the patients’ genes and immune system prior to the operation will allow the selection of the right implant materials thus avoiding adverse immunological reactions. During the project, gene tests and immunological biomarkers will be discovered, and hypo-allergenic materials and antimicrobial implant surfaces will be developed
