Researchers identify a protein that keeps metastatic breast cancer cells dormant

A team of scientists headed by Roger Gomis at IRB Barcelona reveals one of the mechanisms that allows metastatic cells to leave a latent state.

An international consortium identifies the breast cancer patients who would benefit from a treatment to prevent metastasis

A study published in the Lancet Oncology by an international team led by Prof Rob E. Coleman (University of Sheffield) and Prof Roger R. Gomis (IRB Barcelona) identifies the effect of MAF amplification on the outcome of treatment with adjuvant zoledronic acid in early breast cancer.

This new knowledge may be key to the early detection of patients who would benefit from zoledronic acid and those who should be spared, and both reduce disease recurrence and deaths from breast cancer.

Inbiomotion, an IRB Barcelona spin off company and financed by venture investors Ysios Capital and Caixa Capital Risc, will soon start a confirmatory trial.

Three innovation projects at IRB Barcelona are granted funding for market development
