New guidelines for parasite studies using extracellular vesicles

A collaborative document outlining new guidelines for the isolation and characterisation of extracellular vesicles in parasitic disease research has been published in the Journal of Extracellular Biology. A research group from IGTP and ISGlobal contributed to the study, which could enhance our understanding of host-parasite interactions and advance early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of parasite-caused diseases.

Apotransferrin shows promise as an early treatment for stroke

Researchers from IGTP have discovered that administering human apotransferrin to mice models affected by intracerebral haemorrhage can mitigate the damaging effects of this severe type of stroke. This finding highlights the promising role of apotransferrin as a pre-hospital and pre-triage frontline treatment for all stroke patients. The study has been published in the journal Antioxidants.
