Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The principal aim of this grant program is to support global research that advances the role of Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulation in the treatment of Ulcerative Colitis (UC).
Característiques principals
Pfizer is interested in supporting research proposals that advance our understanding of ulcerative colitis through research focused in the following areas:
  • For patients treated with S1P receptor modulators, exploration for optimal markers (including clinical, endoscopic, histologic, ultrasonographic, genetics, and other measured markers) to assess and potentially predict response to treatment.
  • Correlation of effects of S1P receptor modulator and Microbiome.
  • Elucidate the role of S1P receptor modulators in the treatment of extra-intestinal manifestations (EIM) of UC.
  • Assess mechanistic association of S1P receptor modulation with reduced inflammation in colonic tissue beyond lymphocyte egress.
