Barça Innovation Hub: Metabolomics at the forefront of elite sport

The Barça Innovation Hub (BIHUB) was created four years ago by the FC Barcelona to develop technological advances applied to sport and improve performance at the highest level. This large Barça Laboratory aims to exploit the synergy between sport and technology in order to reach the levels of demand required by the club. To work at… Read More »Barça Innovation Hub: Metabolomics at the forefront of elite sport

Liposcale for early and reliable diagnosis and prognosis of breast cancer patients

One of the key features of malignant tumour cells is that their energy metabolism is altered. However, in recent years, alterations in lipid metabolism have been described in some types of cancer. A study led by the team of Dr. Josep Gumà and Dr. Sandra Guaita from the Pere Virgili Health Research Institute (IISPV) and… Read More »Liposcale for early and reliable diagnosis and prognosis of breast cancer patients

Liposcale in Circulation

Frequent consumption of nuts, an important component of plant-based diets, is associated with a 15% reduction in total cardiovascular disease (CVD) and a 23% reduction in CVD mortality. Although small studies have shown that supplementing the diet with nuts has a considerable effect on reducing dietary cholesterol in the short term, there is little information… Read More »Liposcale in Circulation

Improvement in the prediction of atheromatous cardiovascular disease using the Liposcale test

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a high burden of atheromatous cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) that is not fully explained by traditional lipid parameters. A study published in the clinical Kidney journal, conducted in patients with chronic kidney disease, reveals that information on lipoprotein composition and subclass particle number using the Liposcale test could improve… Read More »Improvement in the prediction of atheromatous cardiovascular disease using the Liposcale test

Early molecular signature of Parkinson and dementia years before the diseases appear

NMR metabolomics could identify altered lipoprotein and protein glycosylation profiles in REM sleep behavior disorder (iRBD), the prodromal stage of Lewy-type synucleinopathies (LTS) -including Parkinson and dementia. NMR showed predictive power distinguishing future clinical outcome, being a useful tool for identifying short-term high-risk patients for conversion to parkinsonism or dementia. Here you can see the… Read More »Early molecular signature of Parkinson and dementia years before the diseases appear

The use of Liposcale® Test in Premature Cardiovascular disease

Last week, a new paper, which evaluates the use of the Liposcale® test as a predictor of premature cardiovascular disease (PRESARV-SEA Study), was published. Beyond levels of LDL-C, results reported in the article support the relevance of LDL cholesterol composition and size on premature cardiovascular disease progression and its potential as a new biomarker for… Read More »The use of Liposcale® Test in Premature Cardiovascular disease
