“Brain Map” paves the way for Personalized Medicine

Using cerebral imaging, connections between the various brain regions can be visualized. These connections form a veritable “map” of its structure, specific to each individual. Knowledge of these “maps” is enough to predict not just brain function but also the potential development and treatment of neurological diseases.

Metastasis: When Cancer Cells Hitch a Ride Through the Bloodstream

Imagerie de billes fluorescentes sont filmées à très haute vitesse,

Circulating tumor cells use the blood and lymphatic networks to disseminate within the body, forming metastases distant from the primary tumor. Inserm researcher Jacky Goetz and his Tumor Biomechanics team at the Molecular ImmunoRheumatology laboratory (Inserm/Université de Strasbourg) have helped to show that the flow properties of these biological fluids have a huge influence on the risk of developing metastases.

Les risques de complication de l’obésité dépendraient avant tout de la composition du tissu adipeux

Se reposer uniquement sur la quantité de masse grasse semble constituer une approche trop réductrice pour prédire efficacement le risque de complications métaboliques et cardiovasculaires associées à l’obésité. L’équipe Inserm de Laurent Lagrost (Inserm UMR1231 “Lipides, nutrition, cancer”, Université de Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Dijon) montre que, chez la souris, c’est la composition du tissu adipeux, et non sa quantité, qui est associée à l’espérance de vie.

Une piste prometteuse pour la prévention de la sarcopénie et le traitement des maladies neuromusculaires.

En étudiant des muscles jeunes et vieillissants dans un modèle murin, des chercheurs du Centre de recherche en myologie (Sorbonne Université / Inserm) de l’Institut de Myologie sont parvenus à identifier une protéine, la CaVβ1E, qui est à l’origine de l’activation du facteur GDF5. Ce mécanisme permet de prévenir la sarcopénie en maintenant la masse et la force musculaire des souris âgées. L’équipe a identifié la protéine CaVβ1E chez l’homme et montré que son expression est corrélée à la perte de masse musculaire des sujets âgés.

A Vaccine to Overcome Immunotherapy Resistance

Researchers have shown that a commercially-available vaccine can overcome resistance to immunotherapy. Their study, published in Science Translational Medicine, shows that not only can gastroenteritis vaccines induce the immunogenic death of cancer cells in vitro, but also that combining them with immunotherapy triggers a potent anti-tumor immune response in vivo – where immunotherapy alone had failed.

Is physical activity always good for the heart?

Physical activity is thought to be our greatest ally in the fight against cardiovascular disease. But there may be significant variations in its protective effects across a range of different situations, such as regularly playing a sport, carrying heavy loads at work, or going for a walk with friends. These are the findings of a new study led by Inserm researcher Jean-Philippe Empana (U970 PARCC, Inserm/Université de Paris) in collaboration with Australian researchers.
