A Tool to Predict Cognitive Decline Within 10 Years of Parkinson’S Disease Onset

An international study with the participation of physicians from the AP-HP Paris public hospitals network and researchers from Inserm, UPMC and CNRS within the Brain & Spine Institute (ICM) has identified a clinical-genetic score to predict cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease sufferers. Cognitive impairment is one of the most debilitating characteristics to manifest in certain patients with the disease. The ability to predict its emergence within ten years of the onset of Parkinson’s is of major importance for their treatment and for the set-up of targeted clinical trials.

FGF 19: a New Factor to Fight Skeletal Muscle Wasting

Skeletal muscle wasting, a process commonly associated with aging but also seen with various chronic diseases (obesity, cancer, kidney failure), situations of immobilization (accidents, post-operative periods) or prolonged weightlessness (astronauts), strongly impacts quality of life. Researchers from the Cardiovascular, Metabolism, Diabetology and Nutrition (CarMeN) laboratory (Inserm/Inra/Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1/Insa Lyon) in Lyon (France), led by Hubert Vidal, Inserm Research Director, in collaboration with the team of Dr. Jérome Ruzzin from the Department of Biology of the University of Bergen (Norway), have discovered that a hormone produced by the intestine called fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19), is able to increase skeletal muscle mass in mice and increase the size of human muscle cells in culture.

Omega-3 Essential for the Brain from Adolescence into Adulthood

Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for the brain. Deficiency in these acids can lead to depressive mood. A new study led by Inserm and Inra researchers from Unit 901, “Mediterranean Institute of Neurobiology” (Inserm/Université d’Aix-Marseille) and UMR 1256, “Nutrition and Integrated Neurobiology” (Inra/Université de Bordeaux) reveals the mechanisms of disease that develop in adult mice on a low omega-3 diet since adolescence. It also demonstrates therapeutic approaches. The results have been published in The Journal of Neuroscience.

Discovery of a new mechanism involved in the migration of cancer cells

(Français) Une équipe de jeunes chercheurs dirigée par Guillaume Montagnac, chargé de recherche Inserm à Gustave Roussy, en collaboration avec l’Institut Curie et l’Institut de Myologie, a découvert un nouveau mécanisme qui aide les cellules à migrer. La cellule forme à la surface de sa membrane de multiples petites pinces qui l’aident à s’accrocher pour mieux progresser le long des fibres présentes à l’extérieur de la cellule. Ce mécanisme permet de mieux comprendre comment une cellule s’échappe de la masse tumorale et se déplace dans le corps pour aller former un nouveau foyer.
