These are the results of a study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings carried out by researchers from the University of Granada, Madrid Polytechnic University and the European University The exercise plan designed managed to prevent excessive weight gain during pregnancy in 40% of the women studied. The risk of having a baby with macrosomia (inordinate weight of over 4 Kg in newly-born) can be reduced by up to 86% in obese or overweight (...)
An experiment by scientists at the University of Granada, Spain, shows a high-protein diet increases the chance of developing kidney stones and other renal diseases They warn that this type of diet may have potentially serious negative effects and needs to be monitored High-protein diets, like the popular Dr. Dukan diet, increase the long-term risk of developing kidney disease and have a negative effect on renal urinary and morphological markers. What's more, they may (...)
An article published in the journal Nutrición Hospitalaria (Hospital Nutrition) reveals that the attitude of healthcare personnel, along with starting early breast-feeding, are another two factors that help in increasing the mothers’ level of satisfaction The research was carried out by scientists from the University of Granada Nursing Dept. and the “San Cecilio” University Hospital (Granada, Spain) Mothers that have a vaginal birth without epidural anesthesia and who are accompanied by a family (...)
Scientists from the GENYO Centre and the University of Granada (Spain) have discovered that these cells are an excellent clinical tool to determine the response of treatments administered to patients with cancer of the colon. Their work has been awarded in the 9th International Symposium on Minimal Residual Cancer, recently held in Paris (France) Scientists from Granada have demonstrated, for the first time, that detecting circulating tumour cells (CTCs) in blood and studying (...)
This important scientific breakthrough, developed by the University of Granada, will aid the immediate use of artificially-grown skin for major burn patients, since the skin could be stored in tissue banks and made available when needed. One of the problems major burn victims have is that, using the current protocols for artificial skin, they need to wait various weeks in order for it to be grown, using healthy skin from the own patient. Spanish scientists, from (...)
Scientists at the University of Granada have disproved the old idea that chocolate is fattening, in a study reported this week in Nutrition Higher chocolate consumption associated with lower levels of total fat—fat deposits all over the body—and central—abdominal—fat, independently of whether or not subjects are physically active, and of their diet The study—possibly the most comprehensive to date—included 1458 European adolescents aged between 12 and 17 years University of Granada (...)
An international team including GENYO centre researchers has described a molecular mechanism that defends human genome integrity against “bombarding” by mobile DNA sequences. Alterations in the mechanism could be responsible for symptoms causing this syndrome Their research—an important step forward in the field of genetics—is published this week in the prestigious Nature Structural and Molecular Biology journal This scientific advance could in the future help develop new therapies against the disease, caused by microdeletion of a small (...)
Spanish scientists are the first to reveal the previously unknown enigma of the effect melatonin has to counter obesity in the organism and why it has metabolic benefits in treating diabetes and hyperlipidemia Melatonin is a natural hormone segregated by the body and melatonin levels generally increase in the dark at night. It is also found in fruit and vegetables like mustard, Goji berries, almonds, sunflower seeds, cardamom, fennel, coriander and cherries. Spanish scientists have discovered that (...)
The University of Granada participates in a project that has also concluded cognitive performance is better in girls whose walk to school lasts more than 15 minutes than in those who live closer and have a shorter walk The authors of this study analysed a sample of 1700 boys and girls aged between 13 and 18 years (808 boys and 892 girls) in five Spanish cities (Granada, Madrid, Murcia, Santander and Zaragoza) Cognitive performance of adolescent girls (...)
Granada-based researchers patent a new biomaterial based on an activated carbon cloth support that acts as scaffolding for the construction of cells capable of bone regeneration Although their results were obtained ‘ex vivo’, in the future they could help manufacture medicines to treat neoplastic, traumatic or degenerative bone pathologies After obtaining artificial bone in the laboratory, the next step is to implant the biomaterial in animals to see if it can regenerate bone in them  Scientists in Granada, (...)
