Welcome to La XL Lección Memorial Fernández-Cruz
How to solve the main problems facing the world of medicine?
The human body is designed to adapt. It is protected by a repair system that works most intensely during sleep and when damaged leads to aging and disease that leads to death.
The program addresses the main threats to health by discussing the most frequent public health problems. Health assessment is one of the high-performance tools, as it pays back with the definition of the risk of getting sick or the accurate and personalized early diagnosis.
The role of prevention by educating to practice healthy habits that avoids the expression of threatening epigenetic patterns leads us to conceive the important role of the citizen in the development of his/her life encoded in the book of life that are the genes. Be good and take care of your genes is the new motto.
In this struggle for survival with a life of quality and longevity, feeling good about oneself plays an important role, aiming at the happiness we all long for.


Reaching a medical diagnosis in the shortest possible time is the goal of advanced medicine. The identification and characterization of the genome is a reality. This allows us to reach the frontier of science in a revolutionary way. The state of health depends on the genome, but the environment, microbiome and habits that the human being practices, induce the chemical/protein changes that signal the gene what to do. The application in cancer has been a paradigm shift and genetic engineering is now a reality that has broadened the horizon of our medical practice and healthy aging. The 'epigenetic' profile allows to adjust the ability to predict diseases, early diagnosis and define aging.


Is aging a preventable disease? The target is low-grade inflammation.


In the centenary of the discovery of insulin we emphasize that with its discovery, we have changed diabetes from an acute lethal disease to a chronic disease. Throughout these years we have associated it with obesity. This new pandemic is the cause of premature aging and shortening of life expectancy. Its prevention would drag like dominoes the diseases associated with unhealthy aging.

The development of modern anti-diabetic treatments has shifted its target 'glycemia' to the protection of the organs that the pandemic affects. This has revolutionized clinical practice. Cardiology and nephrology are in this case the most benefited by offering anti-diabetic treatments as the first line of treatment of renal and cardiological diseases. Scientific evidence indicates that gut bacteria can talk to the brain and are part of the epigenetic expression particularly in Obesity/Diabetes.

AIDS HIV, a stigmatized disease

On its 40th anniversary we not only celebrate that we have tools that prevent virus replication, thereby decreasing inflammation levels, but also that advances in prevention with prophylaxis and pre-exposure tools offer guarantees for at-risk groups.

A new scenario emerges as a reality for patients suffering from the disease, offering a long healthy life with new treatments.

What is most fascinating is that as we contemplate the future, we see that it verges on the dream of AIDS eradication with new treatments and a vaccine.
