His research revealed that vitamin D deficiency also occurs frequently in COPD and even correlates with the severity of COPD. Moreover, COPD patients who follow a training program heal faster thanks to the favourable effect of this vitamin on the muscles.

 

Prof. dr. Wim Janssens

KU Leuven

His research has shown that MET is needed for the recruitment of anti-tumoral neutrophils and puts a mechanism into action that promotes the killing of cancer cells. This means that the efficacy of a cancer therapy targeting MET in cancer cells will partly be countered by the pro-tumoral effect arising from MET blockade in neutrophils.
