Exploring Metabolomics through Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Its Impact on Nutritional Interventions

Metabolomics, an emerging discipline in biomedical research, focuses on the comprehensive analysis of small metabolic molecules within a biological system. Among the advanced techniques used to unravel metabolic complexity, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) has emerged as a powerful tool for the precise study of metabolites. NMR offers the advantage of providing detailed information about molecular […]

The Importance of Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) in Metabolism Monitoring

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), including valine, leucine, and isoleucine, play a crucial role in human metabolism, and their precise monitoring is essential for understanding and optimizing metabolic health. In this context, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) emerges as a powerful tool for detailed monitoring of these amino acids and their impact on metabolism. NMR allows non-invasive […]

Analysis of the Link between Air Pollution and Blood Lipid Levels: An Innovative Study

The World Health Organization has identified air pollution as the leading environmental health risk globally, responsible for 4.2 million deaths per year, with more than half attributed to ischemic heart diseases and strokes. Air pollution can impact the cardiovascular system through processes such as inflammation, systemic and pulmonary oxidative stress, or dysfunction of the autonomic […]

MetBalance test: Monitor your metabolic health and revolutionize the way you take care of yourself

In the modern era, concern for health and the prevention of non-communicable diseases has reached alarming proportions. As sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy diets, and chronic stress become more common, non-communicable diseases like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and obesity have emerged as significant medical challenges. However, in this context of concern, there has arisen a need […]

This project will be funded under the call for Projects in public-private […]

Metabolomics and Sexual Reproductive Health: An Innovative Approach for Research and Treatment

The Marató de TV3 has announced that the upcoming edition, scheduled for December 17, 2023, will focus on Sexual and Reproductive Health (SSIR), a crucial theme impacting millions in Catalonia and globally. In this context, exploring innovative approaches in research is imperative, and metabolomics emerges as a promising tool to advance our understanding and treatment […]

Metabolomics Unveiling: A NMR Perspective on HIV Research and Personalized Therapeutics

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) metabolomics emerges as a promising tool in HIV research due to its ability to provide a detailed insight into molecular changes in the body. By studying metabolomic profiles in individuals affected by HIV, NMR enables the identification of specific metabolic alterations associated with the infection. This approach not only facilitates the […]

Biosfer Teslab joins the charity run ‘Lliga’t a la Vida’ to combat cancer

In an effort to contribute to the fight against cancer, Biosfer Teslab has actively participated in ‘Lliga’t a la Vida,’ an exciting charity run that aims to raise funds and bring visibility to this devastating disease. ‘Lliga’t a la Vida-Trail’ was born with the enthusiasm of merging a love for sports with solidarity. In collaboration […]

Glycoproteins: Emerging Markers of Inflammation Independent of Cardiovascular Risk

Cardiovascular events occur despite the control of conventional risk factors. Inflammation plays numerous roles in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. As an alternative to traditional inflammatory markers, new biomarkers of systemic inflammation, including Glyc-A and Glyc-B measured by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), have been explored. Especially, the concentration of Glyc-A has been associated as […]
