The ptairMS software, developed in the framework of a collaboration led by the CEA-Joliot, allows the processing and analysis of proton transfer mass spectrometry data, an ideal method for the real-time study of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in exhaled breath.
Researchers at the LIAA (SPI/DMTS) show that the initial route of sensitization to a food allergen (oral, respiratory, cutaneous) directly influences the nature of immune responses at multiple sites in the body.
Researchers from the SHFJ and the DMTS have developed optimized radioligands for immunoPET imaging. The objective is to better predict the effectiveness of anti-PD1/anti-PDL1 immunotherapy used to fight certain cancers.
Researchers from the SCBM describe a hydrogen isotope labeling process that is easy to implement and whose starting point is a "simple" mixture, in a solvent, of the product to be labeled with a pre-catalyst. Explanations of this process which finds applications in many fields including drug development or medical imaging.
A team from BioMaps (SHFJ), in collaboration with several hospital groups, shows that hybrid PET/MRI imaging significantly improves the detection of epileptogenic foci and, consequently, the outcome of surgical treatment of epilepsy.
A consortium of researchers, led by SPI/DMTS, presents ProMetIS, a pilot study for the deep phenotyping of murine models by combining proteomic and metabolomic approaches. A significant advance for the functional characterization of genes and the development of bioinformatics integration approaches.
A joint team from GHU Paris and SHFJ shows the predictive value of PET imaging data of the Tau protein in the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Using fMRI and EEG, NeuroSpin and ICM researchers show that deep brain stimulation of the central part of the thalamus restores the richness of brain activity specific to consciousness, which is "switched off" in an anesthetized non-human primate. This work paves the way for clinical studies in patients with consciousness disorders.
A collaboration between the SHFJ and the UMR-S 1144 (University of Paris) shows that the deleterious effect of the buprenorphine/benzodiazepine combination would result from the combined action of each drug on its target.
A team from the I2BC has just demonstrated, using transient absorption spectroscopy, that the repair of UV-induced damage in DNA by a repair enzyme (6-4) photolyase occurs in two successive photoreactions.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
