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

aminoácidos de cadena ramificada (BCAAs)

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 […]

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 […]


In the following 3 years, Biosfer Teslab will be coordinating a consortium of companies and research centers in the framework of the project HARMONi: HARnessing the power of MultiOmics: towards the generation of Novel & Innovative diagnostic tools to improve cardiovascular risk prediction. This project will be funded under the call for Projects in public-private […]

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

imagen del día mundial de las enfermedades - 1 de diciembre

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 […]

What is metabolomics and how is it applied in diabetes?

Metabolomic profiling involves identifying intermediary molecules and end-products of metabolism, encompassing lipids, lipoproteins, fatty acid variants, amino acids, and glycoprotein acetyls. This approach holds promise for discovering novel biomarkers indicative of disease risk and offers fresh perspectives on molecular mechanisms, biological processes, and implicated disease pathways. Diabetes, affecting over 500 million people in 2021, stands […]
