Apotransferrin shows promise as an early treatment for stroke

Researchers from IGTP have discovered that administering human apotransferrin to mice models affected by intracerebral haemorrhage can mitigate the damaging effects of this severe type of stroke. This finding highlights the promising role of apotransferrin as a pre-hospital and pre-triage frontline treatment for all stroke patients. The study has been published in the journal Antioxidants.

New reproducible and minimally invasive stroke model through an endovascular approach

Researchers of the Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology (CMN) Research Group at the IGTP have developed and established a novel, reproducible and minimally invasive stroke model in pigs through an endovascular approach. The work has been conducted at the Centre for Comparative Medicine and Bioimage (CMCiB), a centre devoted to translational medicine at the very core of the Can Ruti Campus in Badalona together with the IGTP and the Germans Trias i Pujol University Hospital.

A new paper shows how the CMCiB will shine a new light on neurobiology

A review paper with first author Marc Melià-Sorolla of the Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology Research Group and published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences highlights a porcine model as the most suitable for stroke research in the future. The CMCiB-IGTP is equipped to carry out this type of research and the group led by Teresa Gasull are already showing the potential of the non-invasive bioimaging technology.

An update on advances in stroke therapy

The Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology Research Group, led by Teresa Gasull at the IGTP has a mission to carry out basic and translational research into strokes.  This week they have published a review of recent advances in the field, which includes the role of the ferroptosis in stroke-induced neurodegeneration and includes references to their own recent publications in the field.
