Researchers identify a protein that keeps metastatic breast cancer cells dormant

The time needed for breast cancer metastases (secondary lesions caused by cells that have escaped from the original tumour) to develop varies between patients, and little is known about the mechanisms that govern latency (the dormant state of cells that have already spread through the body). A study headed by ICREA researcher Roger Gomis at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) has identified the genes involved in the latent asymptomatic state of breast cancer metastases. The work sheds light on the molecular basis underlying how the expression of certain genes facilitates the spread of metastatic lesions. Dr. Aleix Prat, Head of the Clinical Oncology Department at Hospital Clínic and of the Translational genomics and targeted therapeutics in solid tumors research team at IDIBAPS, has participated in this study.

A new combination of antibiotics allows treating 60% of hospital-acquired pneumonia

A study published in the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases shows the ability of a new antibiotic (ceftazimida-avibactam) to treat hospital-acquired pneumonia, including ventilation-associated pneumonia. It has similar efficacy to one of the most used type of antibiotics in the treatment of this infection, carbapenems, but has the advantage of overcoming problems derived from its administration, such as the resistance of certain bacteria. Dr. Antoni Torres, Head of the Respiratory Intensive Surveillance Unit (UVIR) of the Hospital Clínic and head of the IDIBAPS team on Applied research in infectious respiratory diseases, critically ill patients and lung cancer, is the principal investigator of the study and first author of the article.

Jaume Bosch coordinates the guidance on the management of portal hypertensive bleeding in cirrhosis published in Hepatology

Hepatology, the official journal of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, has published a practice guidance entitled Portal Hypertensive Bleeding in Cirrhosis: Risk Stratification, Diagnosis, and Management. The study is coordinated by Dr. Jaume Bosch, hepatologist at Hospital Clínic and head of the research team Liver hemodynamics and portal hypertension at IDIBAPS. The other three authors, Dr. Juan G. Abraldes and Dr. Annalisa Berzigotti, are former IDIBAPS researchers, and Dr. Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao made a stay at this institution. The main newness of this guidance is the adaptation of the treatments to the various phases of cirrhosis. Read the rest of this entry »
