A recently published international study involving the Medical University of Vienna demonstrated that a straight leg-raise on the part of the patient significantly improved diagnostic accuracy in the work-up of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD or GERD). The scientific study by researchers at the University of Milan was published in the journal "Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology".

In a recent study, researchers from Joanna Loizou's group from CeMM, the Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Medical University of Vienna investigated the POL? enzyme and the role it plays in DNA repair. Inhibiting POL? represents a new approach for developing specific therapies, in particular for patients with BRCA1 mutations. The study, published in Cell Reports, shows for the first time that POL? fills the gaps in single-stranded DNA that excessively occur in a BRCA1-deficient genetic background thus demonstrating its important role in keeping BRCA1 deficient cells alive.

Thyroid dysfunction has a significant impact on human health and can promote obesity, diabetes and even cancer. In a recent overview study, a MedUni Vienna research team investigated the role played by a specific protein, the thyroid-hormone-binding protein µ-crystallin (CRYM). This has an important damping effect on hyperthyroidism and the diseases associated with it. The results were published in the respected journal "Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism".

As the number of obese people suffering from related conditions such as liver disease increases, so does the need for research to develop interventions to improve patient care. The Christian Doppler Laboratory, which opened today at MedUni Vienna, is investigating the physiological basis of the consequences of obesity. The focus is on a translational research approach, with the aim of transferring new knowledge arising from basic research into clinical application as quickly as possible.
