Funding for a project focussed on the response to immunotherapy for the treatment of colorectal cancer

This year the Fundación Mutua Madrileña has allocated 2.3 million euros for financing medical research in Spain. Four of the 21 clinical studies benefiting are projects being carried out in Catalan research centres, which will receive a total of 540,000 euros. One of these is being led by the Germans Trias I Pujol Research Institute (IGTP) and coordinated between four groups of the Programme for Predictive and Personalized Medicine of Cancer (IGTP-PMPPC).

A new gene associated with the maintenance of the protective barrier in the intestine has been identified, this is a key factor in Crohn’s disease

A multidisciplinary group of researchers from the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), the Gastroenterology Service of the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital and the CIBER-EHD, have used transcriptomics to combine data from public databases and from Crohn's disease patient and controls. They have identified the TMIGD1 gene as having an important role in the loss of the barrier between the cells lining the small intestine and its contents. The discovery throws new light on the mechanism of Crohn's disease and opens the way for more personalized therapies.
