European research teams, including one from the CEA's Joliot Institute, have analyzed the blood lipidome of patients with cirrhosis. They highlight specific biomarkers of the different stages of the disease.
Researchers from NeuroSpin designed, trained and tested biologically plausible artificial deep neural networks to identify pictures and written words. They show that these may suffice to account for emergence during reading acquisition of the visual word form area, a specific region underlying orthographic coding.
Researchers from the DMTS and I2BC depatments of the Joliot Institute's " identify three potential new biomarkers of senescent cells containing persistent DNA damage.
A collaborative study led by BioMaps researchers (SHFJ) demonstrates that fully integrated quantitative multiparametric analysis of non-small cell lung cancer in hybrid 18F-FDG PET/MRI 3T imaging is clinically feasible and could enable biological characterization of tumors at the supervoxel scale.
Researchers from BioMaps (SHFJ) and the Service de Neurologie de la Mémoire et du Langage (Hôpital Ste-Anne) show, through amyloid and tau molecular imaging in patients followed for 2 years, that the diagnosis of progressive amnesia in the elderly is not necessarily Alzheimer's disease and may be caused by other mechanisms clearly distinguishable from it.
Researchers from the Laboratory of Food Immuno-Allergy (SPI/DMTS), in collaboration with the Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital, identify an immune signature of severe asthma (SA) in children, through a non-targeted global analysis of all immune and inflammatory constituents present in blood and bronchoalveolar lavages of children with SA.
Researchers from Li2D (SPI/DMTS, Marcoule) and LSCE have developed an innovative methodology for analyzing soil microbiota based on an optimal computational interpretation of metaproteomic databases, which should lead to a better understanding of the impact of pollutants on soil quality and to the prediction of their restoration potential.
Researchers at NeuroSpin have developed a deconvolution method to estimate from BOLD fMRI data the coupling between neuronal activity and blood flow, the characteristic signals of neuronal activity and the associated brain areas. The work was published in NeuroImage.
Researchers at UNICOG (NeuroSpin) show, using a high-resolution electroencephalographic system, that speech, an extremely complex and variable acoustic signal, is perceived by infants as a sequence of stable and invariant segments through an encoding based on distinctive and orthogonal phonetic features, such as manner and place of articulation, which are secondarily combined into phonemes, such as ″b″ or ″m″.
By solving the three-dimensional structure of a fragment of the BRCA2-HSF2BP complex, a collaboration involving teams from I2BC and ERASMUS MC identifies the precise BRCA2 motif that causes the very high affinity between the two partners and shows that, in vivo, this complex has no function in the recruitment of Rad51 to meiotic sites of homologous recombination.
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.
