Level of health in old age and levels of glutamine and amino acids

As life expectancy increases, the presence of chronic diseases and multimorbidity (presence of several chronic diseases) also increases. One of the current social and health challenges is that the “extra” years of life are lived in good health by the elderly. Some socio-demographic aspects such as age, sex or socio-economic level have been considered as … Read more

The James Webb Telescope captures the Tarantula Nebula

The james webb space telescope managed to unearth a revealing new image for the scientific community: a “stellar nursery” in the Tarantula Nebula. In the Large Magellanic Cloud, only 161,000 light-years away, it is about the largest and brightest star-forming region in the local groupthe galaxies closest to the Milky Way. It is home to … Read more

An antitumor drug against obesity?

Obesity is a global health problem. One of the most recurrent therapeutic strategies is that which proposes to stop the expansion of adipose tissue (body fat) at the moment when the precursor stem cells proliferate and transform into fat cells. The S6K1 protein plays an indispensable role in this process. A study conducted by the … Read more

In the photo you can see new details about star formation and the central black hole of the galaxy, as well as two other … Read more

A dormant black hole discovered outside our galaxy

The bone stellar mass black holes they form when massive stars reach the end of their life and collapse under their own gravity. In one binary system (a system of two stars revolving around each other), this process leaves a black hole orbiting with a bright companion star. Sometimes this type of black hole remains … Read more

They discover a new metabolic profile in patients with acute myeloid leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a pathology with high genetic, clinical and metabolic heterogeneity, which hinders the success of currently available therapeutic treatments. Specifically, internal tandem duplications of the FLT3 gene (FLT3-ITD+) are the most prevalent mutations in AML patients and are associated with high relapse rates. A recent study describes a specific metabolic adaptation … Read more
