Anti-platelet therapy prevents the progression of fatty liver to liver cancer in animal models

A study published in the journal Nature Medicine proposes a paradigm shift in the approach to steatohepatitis, the most advanced degree of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, one of the diseases responsible for the increase in the incidence of liver cancer. Read the rest of this entry »

Increase in stroke cases linked to contamination

 

Recent studies show that high pollution in the environment increases the risk of having a stroke

According to the Spanish Society of Neurology (in Spanish, SEN), 30% of the strokes that occur each year are attributable to air pollution and advises that reducing environmental pollution is a step to take in order to curb the increase in cases of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. According to international studies conducted over the past four years, the unique sensitivity of the brain to environmental pollution can lead to a stroke or cerebral hemorrhage.

Researchers at IDIBAPS describe how aging aggravates liver diseases

IDIBAPS researchers have published a series of three studies in which describe the impact of aging on the liver biology and function, both in healthy individuals and in the context of different liver diseases. The works show that the progression and response to treatments is not the same in older people as in young people, demonstrating that aging causes a faster aggravation of liver disease and a worse response to therapies. In addition, it is described for the first time that the molecular signature of liver disease is different in older patients compared to young people. Read the rest of this entry »

Astrocytes play a key role in the survival of neurons

Researchers from IDIBAPS have participated in a study led by the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona (UBNeuro) in which a potential therapeutic strategy to treat Alzheimer’s has been identified. The study, published in Journal of Neuroscience, shows in a model of the illness in mice, that astrocytes –a type of cells in the brain- are able to release proteins that favour survival of neurons. According to the researchers, these results are a step forward in the understanding of the physiology of astrocytes, and they bring the chance to use this type of cells in therapeutic ways to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
