The Eurofever project is an European research project

The Eurofever project is an European scientific research project on autoinflammatory diseases. The project was initiated by physicians involved in the treatment of patients with autoinflammatory diseases, as it is difficult to study these diseases because of their rarity.

 

A database is used for the Eurofever project

The Eurofever project is based on the Eurofever database. This is an internet-based database in which relevant data from patients with an autoinflammatory disease are collected. These data are collected from the medical records of these patients. The goal of the Eurofever project is to increase knowledge on diagnosing autoinflammatory diseases, the course of the disease and the results of treatment.

The research focuses on patients with rare autoinflammatory diseases. Collecting data in different countries for a long time will help to gain insight in these rare diseases. Physicians that treat patients with an autoinflammatory disease can compare data from different patients and use them to choose the best treatment for their own patients.

 

Data are used to write scientific papers

The data collected in the Eurofever database are used to write scientific papers, that are published in international medical-scientific journals. This way, physicians that are unfamiliar with autoinflammatory diseases ... Read more »
