DENIM H2020mm04 (Mesothelioma)
DENIM is an abbreviation of “Dendritic cell Immunotherapy for Mesothelioma”. Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a rare but highly aggressive cancer that kills about 43,000 people worldwide every year. Unfortunately, there is no therapy for mesothelioma, which makes it a highly fatal disease. Thus, there is a clear unmet medical need on the treatment of mesothelioma. The main objective of the project is to demonstrate the efficacy of dendritic cell-based immunotherapy in a randomised phase II/III clinical trial, to address this urgent need. This could potentially lead to a cure of asbestos-exposed workers, consumers and people with cancer. The project runs during the period2016 -2019.
The European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) ensures the project’s compliance with the needs of the people with cancer and is involved in the work package responsible for the effective dissemination of the project news and results among external stakeholders.
ECPC also shares news and results related to the project to all its Members through the monthly newsletter, the website and social media platforms.
This project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, grant agreement No. 668769
