A new risk predictor for breast cancer that improves on commercial tests used in clinical practice

The Laboratory of cancer bioinformatics and functional genomics from the Cancer Research Centre, a joint centre of the CSIC and the University of Salamanca (USAL), has designed a risk predictor for breast cancer patients using machine learning techniques. It allows the identification of genes associated with survival and risk of patients. The new test could be easily translated into the clinical practice, given that its development cost is similar to other routine techniques.

Antibodies against Alzheimer's disease

Scientists at the Centre for Molecular Biology (CBM), joint center of the CSIC and the UAM, have developed antibodies that neutralise the SFRP1 protein, which according to recent studies is a crucial player in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and a promising therapeutic target. The aim is to obtain a drug that can delay the progression of the disease. Now they are searching for partners to scale-up the trial for clinical use.

Removable basket for in vitro analysis of biological tissues

The CSIC and the Miguel Hernández University have developed a basket for in vitro tissue analysis. It enables to fix the sample and allowing its transport between wells without damaging it. It has an optimised design that allows the replacement of the mesh, the maximum use of the surface of the well and an efficient use of the reagents used.

Hydrogels for growing immune cells and mini-organs

A scientific team has developed new hydrogels that serve as 3D culture systems for immune cells and organoids. They allow a higher rate of cell growth than traditional cultures. Among other applications, the team is focusing on growing cells for immunotherapies and obtaining mini-organs for pre-clinical trials.
