About Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute


The mission of the Health Sciences Research Institute of the “Germans Trias i Pujol” Foundation (IGTP) are to generate, preserve, disseminate and increase multidisciplinary and translational knowledge, as well as echnological development in biomedical sciences, by means of a dynamic, efficient and effective organisation.

The ultimate goal of the IGTP is to become a research centre of reference, able to transfer the generated knowledge into clinical practice and therapeutics (translationality), in order to optimise the psychophysical health and quality of life of the population.

- The IGTP, as an institution devoted to biomedical research:
- Assumes its humanitarian view, ethical principles, and solidarity, as well as the principles of sustainability in resource management and relationship with the environment.
- Its activities will be always related with the health needs of the population and the priority areas in healthcare development.
- Assumes the scientific method as its own and faces its goals by means of programs of excellence which enable the leadership in the areas of knowledge of the interest of its researchers.
- Protects the data used in, and generated by the research programmes, as well as the privacy of the patients and healthy individuals who participate in them.

The present disclosure relates to a penile surgical separator-fixator, whose obvious purpose is to maintain the penis properly supported and held during surgeries of the urethra or of the rest of penile structures.[…]

Colonoscopic procedures have become widespread in recent years since colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have become prevalent disorders. Their use has expanded as diagnostic and therapeutic tools in both elective and emergency situations. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the most[…]

Currently, the glucocorticoids are the first-line of treatment for of moderate-to-severe flare-ups. However, up to 40% of patients do not have an adequate response. Mechanisms of steroid-refractoriness in UC remains unknown. In addition, corticosteroid failure impair the effectiveness of rescue th[…]

New developed hydrogel dressing shield, biocompatible, biodegradable and bioactive, with an appropriate viscosity and adhesion capacity, easy to apply with the endoscope, to treat mucosal lesions in the gastrointestinal tract.[…]

The device presented enables the combination of both electrical and mechanical stimulation either independently or simultaneously. The mechanical stimulation is performed with a non-invasive and aseptic novel approach. A sterile, single use device is placed into a standard culture plate. The cel[…]

The present data provide a solid basis for the development of genetic biomarkers for the early identification of patients suffering from dementia with Lewy bodies and to classify them into specific molecular subtypes. One of the biomarkers correlates with the development of Lewy pathology in the bra[…]

Our group has demonstrated that intravenous administration of apotransferrin strongly reduces the brain damage (up to 75%) in 3 different rat models including both transient and permanent ischemic stroke and improves the neurological impairment (neuroscore 60%) induced by stroke. Thus, this new appr[…]
