  • The BCN Debates on the Human Microbiome

    The 10th edition of The BCN Debates on the Human Microbiome , organized by IrsiCaixa and ScienHub , brought together international experts who presented the latest studies on the factors that affect and alter the composition of the microbiota.

    Dr Roger Paredes , coordinator of the debates, researcher at IrsiCaixa, and head of Infectious Diseases at the Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol , explained that “The role of the microbiota in our health is key.” He highlighted that the microbiota is responsible for digesting and metabolizing what we eat, as well as responding immunologically to the challenges it faces.

    Additionally, Dr Arnau Vich Vila, a postdoctoral researcher in intestinal diseases at KU Leuven , commented that “It is an ecosystem, and each of these bacteria has a genome that evolves. It’s like having a city with different people, where each one performs a different function, and each is slightly different from the other.”

    The event also coincided with the World Microbiome Day , which was celebrated with a Castellers exhibition.

  • Future Perspectives on Emerging Tick-Borne Zoonosis

    On June 7th, healthcare professionals from the Northern Metropolitan region gathered at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute to celebrate the 5th edition of the International Health and #OneHealth Conference.

    Dr. Óscar Cabezón, a researcher from the conservation medicine research group (WildCoM) at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UABFaculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UAB, emphasized the importance of understanding and controlling emerging infectious diseases transmitted by ticks to prevent contagious outbreaks.

    From his research group, WildCoM, they study the ecology of these diseases from a holistic perspective, highlighting how human-caused environmental changes can influence the presence of a pathogen in the environment. Additionally, he pointed out that climate change, urbanization, and changes in human and animal habits have contributed to the increase in tick-borne diseases, and that more efforts are needed to better understand tick populations and the pathogens they can transmit.

  • The CTU unit participates in the National Congress on AIDS and STIs

    The CTU unit from ScienHub Research Support presented two posters at the XXI National Congress on AIDS and STIs, organized by SEISIDA. The congress focused on the theme “The Ages of HIV,” addressing various perspectives and challenges related to aging and the diversity of PLHIV.

    • “Beyond Comorbidities: Over50 Cohort of PLHIV ≥ 50 Years Old Compared to a Control Group”: The results showed a higher prevalence of sleep disorders, chronic pain, sexual dysfunction, falls, depression, and loneliness in PLHIV compared to a control group. This underscores the need for specific approaches to geriatric care in PLHIV.
    • “Redesigning HIV Care: A Significant Shift in the Profile of Individuals Newly Diagnosed with HIV”: The study concluded that there has been a significant increase in HIV diagnoses in primary care, suggesting a possible lack of information about the infection, a greater diversity of affected population groups, an increase in detection among women, and an increase in AIDS diagnoses. This highlights the need to adopt differentiated approaches for newly diagnosed individuals.

    The participation of the CTU team in the congress underscores our commitment to research, advancing the understanding and improvement of care for people with HIV.

  • We commemorate International Clinical Trials Day

    Today, May 20th, we commemorate a historic milestone in medicine: the first clinical trial conducted by Scottish doctor James Lind in 1747. This pioneering trial, which identified a lack of vitamin C as the cause of scurvy among sailors in the British Navy, laid the foundation for modern clinical research.

    In the past six decades, clinical research has transformed our health and well-being and has contributed to achieving goals such as:

    • Life expectancy in Europe has increased by almost 10 years.
    • The mortality rate from HIV/AIDS has decreased by over 80% since the 1980s.
    • The cancer mortality rate is 20% lower since the 1990s.

    In every clinical trial, the true heroes are the patients. Their active participation is key to the development of new therapies and treatments.

    At ScienHub Research Support, we are committed to advancing research by providing comprehensive support in the management and implementation of clinical studies. From our CRO, we handle the management of clinical trials in all phases, including bureaucratic procedures, monitoring, and data management. From the CTU, we implement clinical trials strictly adhering to current regulations. We ensure the rights, safety, and well-being of the participants, as well as the quality of the data obtained.
