Our research team in respiratory medicine has obtained a resounding success in the latest call for grant applications of the Health Care Research Fund (FIS). With 2 new financed projects, this research group ensures the continuity of some of the main lines of research it is developing. The new three year projects financed are the following:
1. Leaded by Dr. Nestor Soler, it's entitled: "Diagnostic value of Pancreatic Stone Protein (PSP / reg) in infectious exacerbation of COPD: relevance of the microbiome."2. Leaded by Dr. Jacob Sellarés, it's entitled: Association of MBL (Mannose binding lectin) pathway deficiency and pneumococcal serotypes in invasive pneumococcal disease. This is a bicentric coordinated study, the coordinating centre is Hospital La Fe de Valencia and the IP Dr. Rosario Menéndez.
The effect of neuraminidase inhibitors is analized by a consortium leaded by investigators of the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Nottingham
The results of this meta-analysis, in which Prof. Torres and IAMR have collaborated, have been recently published in Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal
This study includes 29 234 patients from 78 studies of patients admitted to hospital between Jan 2, 2009, and March 14, 2011. In conclusion, this meta-analysis advocates the early instigation of neuraminidase inhibitors treatment in adults admitted to hospital with suspected or proven influenza infection. Complete access to the results and methods of this meta-analysis are available in Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal. Prof. Antoni Torres is one of the authors and has contributed with data from the intensive respiratory unit that he leads at the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona.
