A non-invasive method allows detecting a high frequency of undiagnosed chronic liver disease

Researchers at Hospital Clínic and IDIBAPS in collaboration with the USR Metropolitana Nord-IDIAP Jordi Gol, from the Catalan Institute of Health, have carried out a study to determine the frequency of chronic liver disease in the general population who show no signs of disease. They evaluated more than 3,000 people of whom about 4% had an undiagnosed advanced liver disease and at high risk of developing cirrhosis or liver cancer. The study was performed using the elastography, a non-invasive technique to measure liver fibrosis. Read the rest of this entry »

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.
