A team from IDIBELL and ICO, using a mouse orthotopic model, conducted a real-time personalized oncology study to test the best therapeutic option to treat a type of relapse sarcoma.

Common immune characteristics found in lung metastases to target future treatments

Lung metastatic tumours have common immune properties, regardless of the origin of the primary tumour.
These results suggest new approximations and contemplate the development of new immunotherapy treatments.

Designed a new and user-friendly model to predict the life expectancy of a severe neurodegenerative disease

The study of lysosomal function during cell division enables the identification of a new biomarker for chromosomal instability

By studying the role of lysosomes in mitosis, an IDIBELL and UB group discovers that alterations in the separation of chromosomes cause a detectable nucleus morphology once mitosis has finished. This morphology would be useful to identify cells that have chromosomal instability inherent in cancer cells.

A study proposes a new approach for the identification of a syndrome of predisposition to childhood cancer

Patients with this syndrome have more mutations in the microsatellite regions of the genome. The detection of these mutations improves the diagnosis and therapeutic management of patients.
