Immune system cells contribute to the invading capacity of brain tumours

An article published in the journal Brain Communications, coordinated by Carlos Barcia, researcher at INc-UAB, describes how the immune system facilitates the expansion of tumour cells in the brain. The study was performed on human samples of glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain tumour, and on cell culture models.

Mecanisme clau de supervivència de Mycoplasma genitalium

Discovery of an adaptation process key to the survival of Mycoplasma genitalium in the urogenital tract

A study led by an IBB-UAB research team has managed to identify the mechanisms by which the sexually transmitted bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium (Mge) can persist in conditions with very limited availability of metals, a circumstance it must face when infecting humans. The discovery will facilitate the development of therapeutic strategies to fight against this pathogen, which is becoming resistant to antibiotics.

Artificial “inclusion bodies” created for controlled drug release

A new research by the UAB, the Hospital Sant Pau and the CIBER-BBN has developed a new biomaterial with sustained drug release. The results were recently published in Advanced Science and describe the creation of artificial inclusion bodies for uses in precision biotechnology and nanomedicine.
