FreeOx Biotech acquires the rights of two compounds to treat neurological and cardiovascular diseases

Dr. Ángel Chamorro, Head of the Functional Unit of Cerebral Vascular Pathology at Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, ​​has developed two compounds with neuroprotective properties based on reducing the effects of oxidative stress on the body. Hospital Clínic and the Clínic Foundation for Biomedical Research, with the support of the IDIBAPS’s KTT office (Knowledge and Technology Transfer), have signed an exclusive license agreement with FreeOx Biotech for the development and exploitation of this technology.

A study reveals the biological changes in breast cancer between the primary tumor and metastases

A study published in the journal Cancer Research underscores the importance of the molecular characterization of the metastases in breast cancer. Researchers have described, for the first time, that the longer the time from the onset of the tumor to the development of metastasis is, the more aggressive this cancer becomes. They have also shown that between the initial tumor and the metastasis the subtype of breast cancer can change in up to 40% of cases. The work has been coordinated by Aleix Prat, Head of the Oncology Department of the Hospital Clínic, Head of the Translational Genomics team and directed therapies in solid tumors IDIBAPS team and Head of the VHIO Translational Genomics Group. The first author of the study is Juan Miguel Cejalvo, PhD student of the PhD4MD program in the group led by Aleix Prat at IDIBAPS and in the Growth Control and Cancer Metastasis group of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), led by the ICREA researcher Roger Gomis.

IDIBAPS hosts the meeting of the HEP-CAR european project on hepatocarcinoma and co-morbidities

On 13 March, IDIBAPS hosted the annual meeting of the European HEP-CAR consortium. The aim of the project is to identify the molecular mechanisms involved in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and their role in the different co-morbidities that induce the onset of this type of cancer: the infection by hepatitis B and C viruses, alcohol intake or obesity. Translational Reserarch in Hepatic Oncology IDIBAPS group, led by Dr. Josep M. Llovet, in collaboration with Dr. Roser Pinyol and 8 more researchers, participates in this research intiative.
