Liver damage induced by drugs is the main cause of acute liver failure in Europe and the United States. Its severity and evolution are highly variable, depend on the affected individual and is not easy to predict. Read More
The publishing of several articles that reveal the vulnerability of farmed fish to the anisakis parasite has prompted the research group in Marine Zoology of the University of Valencia to experimentally assess the infective susceptibility of fish when exposed to this parasite. The results from the ANITEST project, which just ended, show that, in the improbable case that the parasite reaches farms, fish are not very susceptible to being infected. Read More
An international scientific group with outstanding Valencian participation has managed to measure for the first time oscillations in the brightness of a neutron star –magnetar– during its most violent moments. In just a tenth of a second, the magnetar released energy equivalent to that produced by the Sun in 100,000 years. The observation has been carried out automatically, without human intervention, thanks to the Artificial Intelligence of a system developed at the Image Processing Laboratory (IPL) of the University of Valencia.
This open code equipment, which can be manufactured and programmed for free anywhere in the world, was designed by Spanish researchers during the first wave of the pandemic. Read More
Selene Valero and José Gil, researchers at the Faculty of Psychology and Speech Therapy of the University of Valencia, have studied the changes in sleep behaviour and emotional stability of healthy patients and with previous pathologies before and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The research group Immunology of Fungal Infections at the University of Valencia (UV) has investigated a fungal vaccine with which to train stem cells and hematopoietic progenitors (which produce all the cells of the blood and lifelong immune system) to improve the immune response to infections. The work has been published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology.
A study by the universities of Valencia (UV) and the Catholic University of Valencia finds that the harassment and the response it provokes is different among high school students depending on gender. It concludes that school bullying is not cross-cutting and that the reaction as a witness to the aggression is different: girls tend to seek outside help and boys either get involved at the time or do not act.
Male, with low levels of consciousness and kindness and with high school maladjustment is the majority profile among young people with this type of addiction. Read More
A team of researchers from the Universitat Jaume I made up of Susana Ibáñez, Cristian Vicent and Eduardo Peris, has obtained a new type of molecules, which combines traditional chemical bonds (covalent, ionic) with a new type of bond known as ‘mechanical bond’. Read More
