Amazing - another discovery from our scientists at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona)!

The team discovered a protein that protects against fatty liver, the most common liver disease in Western countries, which can lead to liver cancer. Their results could help prevent fatty liver disease in some people and paves the way for new treatments in the future.

One pill to treat them all? One of our 2016 research highlights was when our scientists at the University of Leeds found a way to potentially block the human herpes virus. Their research takes us a step closer to a pill for everyone who needs it, from a teenager with a cold sore, a new baby with a viral infection or a transplant patient with Kaposi’s sarcoma.

New research hope for Kaposi’s sarcoma
