XX edition of the Translational Research and Digestive Neoplasms Workshop

The XX edition of the Conference on Translational Research and Digestive Neoplasms took place on Thursday 6 October. It was organized jointly by the IGTP and the ICO (Catalan Institute of Oncology) and directed by Drs José Luis Manzano and Eva Martinez-Balibrea (ICO - IGTP) and Dr Albert Abad (Mi Tres Torres). The workshop took place at the Badalona Conference Centre (BCIN), with very positive feedback from the fifty attendees and the organization.

Mesenchymal stem cells reveal mechanisms of action in regulatory B cells independent of interleukin-10 useful for their identification and monitoring

Researchers from the REMAR-IVECAT ("Kidney Related Diseases Research" and "Innovation in VEsicles and Cells for Application in Therapy") group, from the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), identify molecular pathways in regulatory B cells that are essential for their therapeutic applications. In the article that has been recently published in Frontiers in Immunology, the use of mesenchymal stem cells has allowed distinguishing the molecules that are essential to monitoring regulatory B cells in kidney transplants.

Largest genetic study on stroke to date improves risk prediction

  • A group of investigators from the Research Institute of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau - IIB Sant Pau has led the analysis of Spanish data from the largest international study carried out to date on the genetics of stroke risk.
  • The results, published by the prestigious journal Nature, allow us to predict, with much more precision, the risk that a person may suffer a stroke. In addition, they provide valuable information on the biological processes involved in this disease, which is helping to find new, more effective treatments.
  • The study analyzed data from the International Stroke Genetics Consortium, of which the Spanish Genestroke consortium is a member, and the GCAT|Genomes for Life cohort, from the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP).

The IGTP presents CARE Translational Program in Cancer Research

CARE, the Translational Program in Cancer Research is the first transversal program promoted by the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), and it aims to become a bridge for researchers in the field of cancer who want to bring basic and clinical research together, so that the knowledge and the tools generated in the laboratory can benefit the patient.

Sugars steer stem cell extracellular vesicles to epithelial cells

Researchers at the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP) discover new facets of the biology of extra-cellular vesicles that will advance their use in therapies. In an article published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences they describe the importance of glycosylation for the interactions between extracellular vesicles from mesenchymal stem cells and endothelial cells.

The CEEISCAT participates in the Annual Meeting of the Spanish Society of Epidemiology around the "Challenges of the 21st century"

One more year, the Spanish Society of Epidemiology (SEE) has organized its annual congress, this year in Donostia (Euskadi), where more than 800 people have participated at the University of the Basque Country/Euskal Herriko Unibersitatea (UPV/EHU). The Center for Epidemiological Studies on Sexually Transmitted Infections and AIDS of Catalonia (CEEISCAT), as a research group of the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), presented a total of 19 oral communications in their respective fields of work and moderated two oral communication sessions and presented a poster. In addition, Dr. Jordi Casabona, as the director of the center, was invited to make a presentation on the Monkeypox virus.
