Researchers at the CNIO discover a gene that is essential for the DNA-replication process
Millions of cells in our body are constantly dividing to repair tissue damage and ensure our continuity. This is one of the most complex processes that cells go through and, in order for it to be successful, they must, among other things, produce a copy of their DNA. Researchers at the CNIO have discovered the critical role of the POLD3 protein in this DNA-replication process; without POLD3 cells do not divide, they die. (2016-09-06)

Major differences between male and female breast cancers uncovered but male patients still disadvantaged by lack of research, say investigators
Male breast cancer has important biological differences from female breast cancer, according to results from a study of 1203 tumor samples from male patients. Until now it has been assumed that male patients should be treated in the same way as females, but these results mean that this is not the case, and should help doctors make better treatment choices, say the research team. (2016-03-10)
