The Catalan Media Corporation, La Razón and Aldia.cat have highlighted a study conducted by Xavier Salvatella, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona, and published in the journal Structure early in December. In this work, he proposes various ways to tackle prostate cancer and focuses on the androgen receptor protein, which tumour cells need to survive and proliferate.
