The project focus is to address the clinical burden of clostridium difficile infection (CDI) including evaluation of the burden, current practices and set-up of an European research platform. Partners sought are research institutions, SMEs and academia with relevant active research/expertise or capabilities to support the project.
The scope of the project is to develop a detailed understanding of the epidemiology and clinical impact of CDI and more specifically to:
• align and understand the unmet public health needs relating to CDI;
• identify the direct and long term burden on healthcare systems;
• set up an EU research platform that will provide support for potential proof of concept studies of new prevention and treatment strategies.
