RESILIENCE Trial - Now in take-off phase

RESILIENCE is a Horizon-2020 project funded by the European Commission. Its main goal is to test the efficacy of a novel intervention (remote ischemic preconditioning) to reduce anthracyclines-induced heart failure and to test a new MRI protocol as marker of cardiotoxicity. It also includes a strong activity for patients’ empowering with their involvement in the development of the research giving large room to the Patient-Reported Outcome and Experience Measures (PROMs and PREMs). The forecast conclusion of the protocol is scheduled for May 2026.

Earlier in June, the Council of Cardo-Oncology released an overview of the RESILIENCE research project.

RESILIENCE consortium is a multidisciplinary group, including experts in cardiology, haematology, cardio-oncology, and medical imaging, together with nurses and patients’ associations.

The ESC through the Council of Cardio-Oncology leads the Work Package 6, related to the dissemination, communication and exploitation of the project. The Council of Cardio-Oncology-provides the strategy for the implementation of specific outreach and dissemination activities as well as effective exploitation of the project’s results. Moreover, ESC will organise international meetings at the ESC Heart House where patients from different countries, families, researchers, invited persons from industry, etc will gather together.
