Magnetic resonance surveillance reduces mortality in women at high risk of BRCA1 breast cancer as an alternative to preventive mastectomy

According to the results of an international study involving researchers from the Clinical Oncology group at the Sant Pau Research Institute, led by Dr. Teresa Ramon y Cajal, the follow-up with magnetic resonance imaging in women with mutations in the BRCA1 genes who have a high risk of developing breast cancer throughout their lives significantly reduces mortality without the need for preventive mastectomy.

Blood test diagnoses Alzheimer’s with over 90% accuracy

The detection of phosphorylated TAU 217 protein (p-tau217) in plasma has shown high precision in identifying pathological accumulations of beta-amyloid and TAU proteins. This precision is comparable to traditional biomarker detection in cerebrospinal fluid, as revealed by a recent study published in JAMA Neurology. Researchers from the Research Area in Neurological Diseases, Neuroscience, and Mental Health at the Sant Pau Research Institute, led by Dr. Juan Fortea, Director Sof the Memory Unit at the Neurology Department of the same hospital, participated in the study. These results pave the way for diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease through a blood test.
