An international team of researchers led by Miguel Ángel Valverde, of the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences at UPF, shows for the first time that ion channels capable of detecting changes in the physical properties of the cell environment play a key role in the process of tumour invasion and metastasis.The discovery could turn these channels into the target of new drugs that reduce the risk of metastasis.
International team of scientists shows that changes in gene expression in different tissues can be used to predict the time of death of individuals. Their results, which are published in Nature Communications this week, may have implications for forensic analyses.
It’s safe to drink coffee, but it’s doubtful whether it can reduce cardiovascular risk or the risk of cancer
These are the findings of a new evaluation by Nutrimedia, a project of the Science Communication Observatory of the Department of Communication, with the collaboration of the Cochrane Iberoamerican Center (CCIB), which has analysed the results of the main studies on the effects of coffee on adults, pregnant women, children and adolescents.
Healthy cells suppress inflammation unless it is required. This finding suggests new strategies to improve the prevention of pancreatic cancer. The research, lead by Francisco Real, full professor at the Department of Health and Experimental Sciencies, is published on the 14th of February in Nature magazine.
