Subtle skin changes that suggest severe disease
(British medical journal, 2018-05-18)
Mechanisms of CPT1C-Dependent AMPAR trafficking enhancement
(Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience, 2018-08-08)
In neurons, AMPA receptor (AMPAR) function depends essentially on their constituent components: the ion channel forming subunits and ion channel associated proteins. On the other hand, AMPAR trafficking ...
Evaluation of RETICs glaucoma diagnostic calculators in preperimetric glaucoma
(Translational Vision Science & Technology, 2018-11)
Purpose: To evaluate two glaucoma diagnostic calculators (GDC) in a group of eyes with preperimetric glaucoma (PPG). Methods: All eyes (n = 265) included in this study had ocular hypertension with ...
Use and misuse of PRP clinical trial proposal to help find PRP’s true efficacy
(Journal of Dermatological Research, 2018-04)
Introduction: Since the early 1970s, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used in many fields as a potential remedy for having regenerative properties. In dermatology, its use is extended to different ...

This is the pre-peer reviewed version of the following article: Monforte‐Royo, C, Crespo, I, Rodríguez‐Prat, A, Marimon, F, Porta‐Sales, J, Balaguer, A. The role of perceived dignity and control in the ...
Centromeric signaling proteins boost G1 cyclin degradation and modulate cell size in budding yeast
(PLoS Biology, 2018-08-06)
Cell size scales with ploidy in a great range of eukaryotes, but the underlying mechanisms remain unknown. Using various orthogonal single-cell approaches, we show that cell size increases linearly ...
Predicting patient-ventilator asynchronies with hidden markov models
(Scientific Reports, 2018-12-04)
In mechanical ventilation, it is paramount to ensure the patient’s ventilatory demand is met while minimizing asynchronies. We aimed to develop a model to predict the likelihood of asynchronies occurring. ...
High red blood cell distribution width as a marker of hospital mortality after ICU discharge: a cohort study
(Journal of Intensive Care, 2018-11-16)
Background: High red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with worse outcome in diverse scenarios, including in critical illness. The Sabadell score (SS) predicts in-hospital survival after ...
