A study by IDIBAPS and ICFO researchers report on the mechanisms that could explain the antiNMDAR encephalitis

Researchers from ICFO and IDIBAPS go one step forward in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the appearance and development of autoimmune diseases of neuronal cells, such as anti-NMDAR encephalitis. Thanks to a type of microscopy called STORM, they have revealed how the antibodies of patients can modify the function of NMDA receptors, altered in this disease. In the study, published in Cell Reports, ICFO researchers Laurent Ladépêche, Shreyasi Thakur, Irina Suárez, Joseph Steven Borbely, Ángel Sandoval, Lara Laparra, led by Prof. Melike Lakadamyali, in collaboration with IDIBAPS researchers Jesús Planagumà, Makoto Hara, directed by Prof. Josep Dalmau, have participated.

IDIBAPS researchers decipher how leukaemia’s genome works

A team of researchers from IDIBAPS show for the first time the complete epigenome of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, the most common type of leukaemia. The study, published in Nature Medicine, provides a high-resolution map of the functions of the genome, which steps forward into cancer molecular research. The comparison of the map for this type of leukaemia with the map of healthy cells shows hundreds of regions that change their functionality in leukaemia which help to understand the illness better and represent potential targets for the development and application of new therapies.

Hospital Clínic and IDIBAPS researchers participate in the new European clinical guidelines for the management of hepatocellular carcinoma

Two researchers from the Hepatic Oncology Unit at Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS have participated in the development of the new clinical practice guidelines for the management of hepatocellular carcinoma developed by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL). It is a consensus document that marks the road map in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of this type of cancer, which accounts for 90% of primary liver tumors. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
