One of the lines of research of the UPV/EHU's Lipids & Liver group, which focusses on the mechanisms involved in the development and progression of a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, is achieving significant advances in a range of aspects.

In a small study based on conversations with 20 hospital-based surgeons, Johns Hopkins researchers say they found that most report feeling pressure to operate under severe emergency situations, even when they believe the patients would not benefit.
New QUT research has shed fresh light on how the head and neck cancer spreads to other organs and researchers are developing a simple blood test to tell doctors which patients are at risk of spread long before conventional imaging can.
New research at the University of Arkansas has found a way to identify radiation-resistant cancer cells, a breakthrough in the treatment of lung cancer that uses imaging to evaluate the response to treatment and match treatment to specific tumor cells.
By delving into the mysteries of low back pain, scientists have identified three genes linked to chronic back pain and proposed the order in which pathological changes to the spine lead to low back pain.
The biomedical industry depends on blood from horseshoe crabs for drug and environmental safety testing but this commercial demand, together with capture for bait, climate change, and habitat destruction, is threatening populations of these living fossils.
Deep inside your ear, there's a tiny thing you may not know about a dead-end tube called an endolymphatic sac. Details on its function have been debated, but now scientists think they have finally figured out what this odd structure is for. The study was published in eLife.
Researchers determine that the key to better treatments for brain injuries and disease may lie in the molecules charged with preventing the clumping of specific proteins associated with cognitive decline and other neurological problems. The study was published in Neurobiology of Disease.
Public health officials are expanding efforts to get the HIV prevention pill into the hands of those at risk, in a nationwide effort to curb infections. But the officials are hitting roadblocks—the drug's price tag, which has surged in recent years, and changes in insurance coverage that put a heftier financial burden on patients.
A new study examined that Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM) is a tool which breaks the diffraction resolution barrier to provide resolutions of up to 20nm. The resolution of conventional microscopes is limited by the diffraction of light. This resolution is 200 nm laterally and 500 nm in the axial direction. Thus, it is difficult to visualize any object which lies below the range of this resolution. The size of most of the structures inside a cell is below this limit, which makes light microscopy an inappropriate tool to visualize sub-cellular structures.
A well-known thoracic surgeon successfully completed Northwestern Memorial Hospital's first robotic-assisted minimally invasive tracheoplasty using the da Vinci Xi Surgical System to help repair the collapse of the central airway including the trachea and bronchi. Northwestern Memorial is only the second hospital in the country to successfully complete such a complicated procedure providing patients with a better outcome and quicker recovery time after surgery.
