The University of Valencia, together with the INCLIVA Health Research Institute of the Hospital Clínic Universitari de València, has led a study involving the Hospital La Fe de València and Oftalvist and with the collaboration of the Universitat Politècnica de València to analyse the most effective doses of anti-VEGF to treat the retinopathy of prematurity and to avoid adverse effects.

Cells that interpret an increase in nutrients accelerate ageing and shorten lifespan

Research shows that cells that interpret an increase in nutrients accelerate ageing and shorten lifespan. Cells receive signals of an increase in nutrients, which leads to malfunction and inflammation in organs such as the pancreas, liver or kidneys.

Research analyses the characteristics of AI-generated deepfakes
Most of the deepfakes (videos with fake hyper-realistic recreations) generated by artificial intelligence (AI) that spread through social media feature political representatives and artists and are often linked to current news cycles. This is one of the conclusions of research by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) that analyses the formal and content characteristics of viral misinformation in Spain arising from the use of AI tools for illicit purposes.

An app to fight the social stigma of OCD reduces symptoms and helps prevent the disorder
According to two published papers led by UV's Professor Gemma García-Soriano, the esTOCma app "has proved useful in raising awareness of OCD in society, dispelling false myths about it and encouraging people to seek help as soon as possible." The results of these studies show that after using the app for a few minutes for 4-5 days, the users have a better understanding of the disorder.

Discovery of cellular mechanisms that direct the folding of epithelia by which organs are formed
A study by the Autonomous University of Madrid and CSIC demonstrates the role of cell proliferation and an intercellular communication mechanism in the formation of organisms. The research team validated the results with a mathematical model that predicts epithelial shape and cell behavior. A research group at the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CBM-CSIC-UAM), a joint center of the CSIC and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), has described the cellular mechanisms that contribute to the folding of tissues to give our organs their characteristic shape.
