Dr. Hove-Madsen (IIBB) participates in an international and multidisciplinary project that identifies a molecular mechanism of the cardiac alternans, one of the causes of severe cardiac arrhythmia and sudden death

An international team of multidisciplinary researchers has identified one of the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac alternans, an alteration of the heart rhythm that facilitates the induction of ventricular fibrillation, a potentially fatal arrhythmia. Furthermore, they show that people with loss of ryanodine receptor (RyR) function are prone to induction of ventricular fibrillation and sudden death caused by cardiac alternans.

An international study led by investigators from the IIBB-CSIC uncover a key role for STARD1 in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)

El CHC és el càncer de fetge més comú i la fase final de les malalties hepàtiques cròniques de diverses etiologies, com l'hepatitis viral, la malaltia hepàtica alcohòlica o la esteatohepatitis no alcohòlica (EHNA). Es preveu que el CHC per EHNA augmenti a tot el món a causa de la seva associació amb l'epidèmia d'obesitat i diabetis de tipus 2.

Investigators of the IIBB-CSIC discover a new role for sphingomyelin synthase 1 in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis

A recent study published in GUT, co-directed by Ki-Up Lee of the University of Ulsan, South Korea and José C. Fernandez-Checa, leader of the group "Mitochondrial regulation of cell death" at the IIBB, describes a new role for the Sphingomyelinase synthase 1 (SMS1) in hepatocellular death associated with the inflammation characteristic of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, called pyroptosis.
