About Us

IP-cure-B is a five-year project started in January 2020, coordinated by INSERM in France.

Our collaborative network brings together 13 complementary partners, including 10 research institutions, 1 pharmaceutical companies, 1 patient association and 1 private company from 9 different countries (including 8 European member states). The project is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Programme.

Vision of the project

Benefits for medical experts

The project aims at proposing a treatment paradigm shift with the development of novel combination therapies for CHB with improved cure rates and a better appraisal of novel biomarkers to improve patient selection for treatment and monitoring treatment response.

Benefits for patient
The project aims at designing and developing novel treatment strategies towards the cure of infection with shorter duration of treatment. It is expected to result in improved quality of life and decreased social stigma.
Benefits for community
The development of such curative therapies with finite duration of administration will pave the way towards universal treatment of all individuals that suffer from chronic HBV infection. It is thus expected to result in long-term reduction in cost and global burden of CHB (short-term therapy, increased treatment uptake in the infected population, decreased rate of liver complications and mortality).
