Cdc42 is a small RhoGTPase regulating multiple functions in eukaryotic cells. The activity of Cdc42 is significantly elevated in several tissues of aged mice, while the Cdc42 gain-of-activity mouse model presents with a pre-mature aging-like phenotype and with decreased lifespan. These data suggest a causal connection between elevated activity of Cdc42, aging and reduced lifespan. Here, we demonstrate that systemic treatment of aged (75-week old) female C57BL/6 mice with a Cdc42 activity specific inhibitor (CASIN)...

Data from: Intrinsically regulated learning is modulated by synaptic dopamine signaling

Pablo Ripollés, Laura Ferreri, Ernest Mas-Herrero, Helena Alicart, Alba Gómez-Andrés, Josep Marco-Pallares, Rosa Maria Antonijoan, Toemme Noesselt, Marta Valle, Jordi Riba & Antoni Rodriguez-Fornells
We recently provided evidence that an intrinsic reward-related signal-triggered by successful learning in absence of any external feedback-modulated the entrance of new information into long-term memory via the activation of the dopaminergic midbrain, hippocampus, and ventral striatum (the SN/VTA-Hippocampal loop; Ripollés et al., 2016). Here, we used a double-blind, within-subject randomized pharmacological intervention to test whether this learning process is indeed dopamine-dependent. A group of healthy individuals completed three behavioral sessions of a language-learning task...

Carolina Lorencio Cárdenas, Juan Carlos Yébenes, Emili Vela, Montserrat Clèries, Josep Mª Sirvent, Cristina Fuster-Bertolín, Clara Reina, Alejandro Rodríguez, Juan Carlos Ruiz-Rodríguez, Josep Trenado & Elisabeth Esteban Torné
Abstract Background The incidence of sepsis can be estimated between 250 and 500 cases/100.000 people per year and is responsible for up to 6% of total hospital admissions. Identified as one of the most relevant global health problems, sepsis is the condition that generates the highest costs in the healthcare system. Important changes in the management of septic patients have been included in recent years; however, there is no information about how changes in the...

SARS-Cov-2 incubation period according to vaccination status during the fifth COVID-19 wave in a tertiary-care center in Spain: a cohort study

Jordi Cortés Martínez, Daewoo Pak, Gabriela Abelenda-Alonso, Klaus Langohr, Jing Ning, Alexander Rombauts, Mireia Colom, Yu Shen & Guadalupe Gómez Melis
Abstract Background The incubation period of an infectious disease is defined as the elapsed time between the exposure to the pathogen and the onset of symptoms. Although both the mRNA-based and the adenoviral vector-based vaccines have shown to be effective, there have been raising concerns regarding possible decreases in vaccine effectiveness for new variants and variations in the incubation period. Methods We conducted a unicentric observational study at the Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge, Barcelona, using...

Data from: QuantiFERON®-TB Gold In-Tube for contact screening in BCG-vaccinated adults: a longitudinal cohort study

Laura Muñoz, Lucía Gonzalez, Laura Soldevila, Jordi Dorca, Fernando Alcaide & Miguel Santin
Objective. To assess the utility of QuantiFERON®-TB Gold In-tube (QFT-GIT) for targeting preventive therapy in BCG-vaccinated contacts of tuberculosis (TB), based on its high specificity and negative predictive value for development of TB. Methods. We compared two screening strategies for TB contact tracing in two consecutive periods: the tuberculin skin test (TST) period, when all contacts were screened with the TST alone; and the QFT-GIT period, when BCG-vaccinated contacts underwent TST and QFT-GIT. Diagnosis of...

X chromosome in aged hematopoietic stem cells (HSC)

Maria Carolina Florian
During X chromosome inactivation (XCI), the inactive X chromosome (Xi) is recruited to the nuclear lamina at the periphery of the nucleus. Beside X chromosome reactivation resulting in a highly penetrant aging-like hematopoietic malignancy, little is known about XCI in aged hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) . Here, we demonstrate that LaminA/C defines a distinct repressive nuclear compartment for XCI in young HSCs, and its reduction in aged HSCs correlates with an impairment in the overall...

Phenotype and clinical outcomes of Glu89Lys hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis: a new endemic variant in Spain

Aróstegui, Carlos Casasnovas, Roberto Barriales-Villa, Teresa Sevilla, Esther Gonzalez-Lopez, Elvira Ramil, Lucia Galan, Jose González-Costello, Ana García-Álvarez, Ricard Rojas-Garcia, Maria Angeles Espinosa & Pablo Garcia-Pavia
The p.Glu109Lys variant (Glu89Lys) is a rare cause of hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTRv) for which clinical spectrum remains unresolved. We sought to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of ATTR Glu89Lys amyloidosis and assess a potential founder effect in Spain. Patients with the p.Glu109Lys ATTRv variant from 14 families were recruited at 7 centres. Demographics, complementary tests and clinical course were analysed. Haplotype analysis was performed in 7 unrelated individuals. Thirty-eight individuals (13 probands, mean...

Hemorrhagic Versus Ischemic Risk in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation on Hemodialysis

Mariana Sousa, Gonçalo Cruz, Sara Vilela, Catarina Cardoso, Pedro Bravo, José Paulo Santos, Cristina Santos & Jorge Silva
Abstract Background Hemodialysis (HD) patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) have a particularly high risk of stroke and bleeding, but no high-quality evidence-based recommendations exist to properly manage these patients. Objectives We aim to evaluate the ischemic versus the hemorrhagic risk in a HD population with AF. Methods We selected incident patients that started hemodialysis between 2011 and 2015. All patients that had AF before HD, or developed AF during the follow-up, were included. Both CHA2DS2...

Abstract Background Epidemiological studies of associations between metabolites and cancer risk have typically focused on specific cancer types separately. Here, we designed a multivariate pan-cancer analysis to identify metabolites potentially associated with multiple cancer types, while also allowing the investigation of cancer type-specific associations. Methods We analysed targeted metabolomics data available for 5828 matched case-control pairs from cancer-specific case-control studies on breast, colorectal, endometrial, gallbladder, kidney, localized and advanced prostate cancer, and hepatocellular carcinoma nested...

Data from: Vascular disease in COPD: systemic and pulmonary expression of PARC (Pulmonary and Activation-Regulated Chemokine)

Mariana Muñoz-Esquerre, Elisabeth Aliagas, Marta López-Sánchez, Ignacio Escobar, Daniel Huertas, Rosa Penín, Jordi Dorca, Salud Santos & Elisabet Aliagas
Introduction. The role of Pulmonary and Activation-Regulated Chemokine (PARC) in the physiopathology of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is not fully understood. The aim of the present study is to analyze the expression of PARC in lung tissue and its relationship with the vascular remodeling of the systemic and pulmonary arteries of COPD subjects. Methods. To achieve this objective, protein and gene expression experiments, together with ELISA assays, were performed on the lung tissue, intercostal...

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a global public health challenge. Whilst the advent of genome-wide association studies has identified >400 genetic variants associated with T2D, our understanding of its biological mechanisms and translational insights is still limited. The EPIC-InterAct project, centred in 8 countries in the European Prospective Investigations into Cancer and Nutrition study, is one of the largest prospective studies of T2D. Established as a nested case-cohort study to investigate the interplay between genetic...

Data from: Effect of information about the benefits and harms of mammography on women's decision making: the InforMa randomised controlled trial

Background: In Spain, women invited to breast screening are not usually informed about potential harms of screening. The objective of the InforMa study is to assess the effect of receiving information about the benefits and harms of breast screening on informed choice and other decision making outcomes, in women approaching the age of invitation to mammography screening. Methods: Two-stage randomised controlled trial. In the first stage, 40 elementary territorial units of the public healthcare system...
