In vitro method for predicting the biocompatibility of medical implants

Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI), the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) and the Centre for Cooperative Research in Biosciences (CIC bioGUNE) have patented a new in vitro method for predicting the biocompatibility of materials to be used in the manufacture of medical implants, such as joint and dental prostheses, valves and stents. […]

Compounds with anti-cancer activity

The Universitat Jaume I (UJI), the Spanish Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (CSIC) and the University of Pavia (UP) have patented new compounds with potent anticancer activity in breast and colon tumour cell lines that have low toxicity in healthy cells, which can dramatically decrease side effects during chemotherapy treatment. In addition, new compounds may […]

The UJI shows that the cerebellum is crucial to understanding vulnerability to drug addiction

An international research team led by the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) has shown that the cerebellum, contrary to what was thought, fulfils functions that go beyond the motor sphere and can be co-responsible for the brain alterations associated with addictive consumption of drugs. The findings, which are shown in two recent reviews published in Neuroscience […]

Maternal aggressiveness before delivery

A research developed by the Functional Neuroanatomy Research Group (NeuroFun) at the Faculty of Health Sciences in the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) has shown that the hormone prolactin and the placental lactogens (prolactin-like hormones produced by the placenta) act on the female brain during gestation causing changes in mothers’ behaviour and mental function, including aggressiveness […]

Influence of a protein in Alzheimer’s disease

A team of researchers from the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) has studied the operation of a small brain protein, called relaxin-3, and has found its action on the neurons that are damaged during the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. The results of this neurobiological study have been published in […]
