Modesto Orozco’s lab has published a paper in Chemical Communications about a therapeutic tool to prevent treatment resistance in breast cancer.
The tool has been tested in tumour cells in vitro and will now need to be tested in animal models before moving on to the development of a valid treatment for patients.
IRB Barcelona scientist, Modesto Orozco has been granted 150,000 euros to optimise and validate a promising anti-tumour therapeutic tool over 18 months.
ICREA researcher Roger Gomis, head of the Growth Control and Cancer Metastasis Lab, has recently been awarded a 2016 "Knowledge Industry Grant" (Producte), by the Catalan Government’s Agency for Management of University and Research Grants, for the further development of a therapy for the treatment of breast cancer. His 18-month project, "Lipid targeting in breast cancer", aims to obtain a monoclonal antibody, based on a well-defined molecular target, that is suitable for patient treatment and to complete its pre-clinical development phase.
