Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) posted this:An interactive software tool to deal with missing values (gap filling) in hydrological time series for water managementgapIT is a JAVA-based software package that automatically calculates missing data using different data-infilling techniques, using hydrological discharge data series measures at gauging stations as input. Donor stations are automatically selected based on Dynamic Time Warping, geographical proximity and upstream/downstream relationships among stations. For each gap, the tool computes several flow estimates through various data-infilling techniques, including interpolation, multiple regression, regression trees and neural networks. The interactive visual application allows the user to select different donor station(s) than those automatically selected. The results are validated by randomly creating artificial gaps of different lengths and positions along the entire records. Using the Root Mean Squared Error and the Nash-Sutcliffe coefficient as performance measures, the method is evaluated based on a comparison with the actual measured discharge values.

Yeda posted this:Anti-QSOX1 Antibody for Treating Cancer and MetastasisCancer, and especially cancer metastasis, is a leading cause of death worldwide. Research in recent years highlighted the importance of the extracellular matrix (ECM) surrounding the tumor in cancer progression metastasis formation. Therefore, many attempts currently address the unmet need to target enzymes that remodel the ECM to treat cancer. The current technology is a monoclonal antibody that specifically inhibits QSOX1, an enzyme that remodels the ECM and is up-regulated in several cancers. The antibody effectively inhibited tumor progression and metastasis formation in several mouse models, especially when combined with chemotherapies. The antibody potentially offers a generalized treatment for several cancer types as a single agent or in combination with standard of care chemotherapies.
Javier Montiel Bonmatí posted this:Antibacterial alternative to antibiotics, with high specificity against Escherichia coliThe "Molecular Microbiology" research group at the University of Alicante has modified several phage proteins (Poll-N and UK-C) that have high specificity against Escherichia coli (E. coli), but not against other Gram-negative (G-) bacteria. For these reasons, their use as a specific antimicrobial against E. coli is potentially interesting, especially in the case of contaminated food, cosmetics or water. It would also be useful in the treatment of diseases (infections) caused by E. coli. The presence of a histidine tail attached to the phage proteins not only facilitates their purification but also improves lysis efficiency without the need of cell permeabilization treatments. Companies interested in the commercial exploitation of the technology through license agreements and/or technical cooperation are sought.

CSIC - Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Antibodies to measure residual levels of mycotoxin ochratoxin A in foodCSIC and the University of Valencia have developed antibodies capable of determining ochratoxin A in food and ensure compliance with legislation on food products regarding the presence of this mycotoxin. Antibodies have been generated using novel functionalized derivatives of ochratoxin A. These immunoreagents have shown their efficacy in both direct and indirect competitive ELISA to detect concentrations close to parts per trillion. We are looking for companies interested in patent licensing for the development of fast, sensitive and portable kits for the analysis of ochratoxin A in foods and beverages based on these antibodies. The license of the patent is offered Effective, fast and accurate detection Ochratoxin A has a higher incidence in cereals, wine, juices and coffee One of the most harmful and frequent mycotoxins in food is ochratoxin A. Its presence is a real problem for human health due to its toxicity, and it causes significant economic losses to various productive sectors. The main fungi producing ochratoxin A belongs to the genera Penicillium and Aspergillus, and the products with the highest incidence are cereals, wine, juices and coffee. The small concentrations at which this potent toxin is usually found commonly require the use of sophisticated chromatographic methods. An alternative is the generation of antibodies against ochratoxin A with superior performance to the existing ones that allow this toxin being recognized with high affinity and specificity. These immunoreagents can be easily implemented in various analytical platforms, from the simplest, such as competitive ELISAs and immunochromatographic strips, to more complex, like chips or biosensors of different types, which allows us to simultaneously analyze a large number of samples in low-resource settings such as warehouses, cellars and even farmlands. Main applications and advantages Ochratoxin A derivatives functionalized at new positions have been synthesized that faithfully preserve the structure and characteristics of this potent mycotoxin. These new compounds have proven to be extremely efficient as haptens to generate antibodies capable of recognizing ochratoxin A with an affinity and selectivity not previously described. Immunoassays developed using these immunoreagents have been shown to be very sensitive, allowing analysis of ochratoxin A at levels close to 10 parts per trillion. These new methods are faster than instrumental procedures, especially when analyzing complex samples such as wine and coffee. The generated immunoreagents are easily adaptable to portable methods, such as ELISA kits or immunochromatographic strips.

Yeda posted this:Antibody Based Therapy to Treat Cancer and GI Related DiseasesA novel therapeutic antibody against MMP-7, with exceptional specificity, for the treatment of aggressive cancers. Although early programs targeting MMPs (matrix metalloproteins) were largely unsuccessful due to adverse side effects, they remain a viable and highly desirable therapeutic target. The main obstacle in the attempts to target MMPs is the ability to selectively target individual MMPs. The present invention provides highly selective targeted therapy against MMP-7, which is strongly associated with aspects of cancer development such as angiogenesis and metastasis. In a further development of their previous groundbreaking synthetic metal-protein mimicry molecules, researchers from Prof. Irit Sagi’s lab generated an antibody which exhibits exceptional degree of specificity towards MMP-7 over other MMPs. The present technology offers an opportunity to re-introduce improved MMP-targeting agents to the cancer therapeutics market, in particular aggressive cancers that face a major unmet medical need.

Thus, this new approach may benefit not only stroke patients who can be treated with current treatment to induce recanalization (transient stroke) but also the 80% of patients who could not benefit from current therapies directed to induce recanalization of the artery (permanent strokes). Results in the preclinical area and some results obtained in serum of stroke patients lead us to think that apotransferrin is a good neuroprotector in the early stages of the ischemic event.
Korea Institute of Energy Research posted this:Apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma.Researchers at the Korea Institute of Energy Research have developed a new apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma. Silicon nanocrystals have been widely investigated for several years because of their many interesting properties and potential use in several applications. Recently, silicon nanocrystals have been used in solar cells and light emitting device (LEDs). Silicon is an environmentally friendly material and is utilised for various applications in the field of electronic materials. The field of silicon nanocrystal production has grown enormously of late, in response to the observation of quantum confinement in porous silicon. Silicon is already widely used in the semiconductor industry, in large part because of its nontoxic properties and abundance, being the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Due to the high capacity of silicon paired with its relatively environmentally friendly properties it is an ideal material for use as a replacement to more commonly used environmentally costly materials. The common process of producing silicon nanocrystals can be classified into three distinct areas: solid-state reaction, liquid state reaction, and vapour state reaction. The solid-state reaction is the process whereby a thin film of SiO2, Si3N4 or the like containing excess Silicon (Si) is formed and subjected to heat treatment to enable the condensation of silicon and subsequent formation of silicon nanocrystals in a SiO2, Si3N4 or SiC matrix. In the liquid state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared via a chemical reaction of silicon compounds, this is done through the application of variant methods, for example the high-temperature supercritical method. In the vapour state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared by passing a silane compound gas through a high energy region such as laser or plasma. In the case of all three traditional silicon nanocrystals reaction methods (solid, liquid and gas) the process incurs significant cost due to the substantial need for heat energy and expensive deposition equipment. What’s more, in the liquid State reaction issues arise due to the severe difficulty in controlling particle size, which in turn leads to poor crystallinity quality. The vapour state reaction incurs further issues due to the extreme use of energy resulting in aggregated nanocrystals and the formation of secondary particles. To overcome the inherent issues of solid, liquid and vapour silicon nanocrystal reactions non-thermal plasma, such as inductively coupled plasma (IPC) has begun to be used. However, the conventional ICP-based apparatus has limitations and can result in issues pertaining to the management of the particle size of silicon nanocrystals, as well as extending reaction time and deteriorating silicon nanocrystal quality. To combat the aforementioned limitations in silicon nanocrystal production a new apparatus method has been designed, which can minimise plasma diffusion inside the reactor during production using ICP to improve the particle size characteristics and quality of the silicon nanocrystals.
Sandra Moczulska posted this:Application and method of producing cyclic compounds in olefin metathesis reactionThe olefin metathesis reaction has many advantages, the most important of which is the fact that it shortens the synthesis path by reducing the number of required steps and this lowers the cost of obtaining the target product. Unfortunately, the industrial application of the olefin metathesis reaction (especially in the production of macrocyclic rings in the RCM reaction) is currently experiencing difficulties such as: - lack of selectivity and product competition (a major problem with RCMs leading to large macrocyclic rings to minimize the problem of high dilution, but it clearly increases the cost of the process) - displacement of reaction equilibrium (RCM reaction is an equilibrium process, so to move the process towards the formation of products it is necessary to react under reduced pressure) - migration of double bond C = C (migration within the substrates as well as target product due to side reactions. This inconvenience can be eliminated by using, for example, quinones - unfortunately, this elimination is only partial.) - the need to use a homogeneous ruthenium catalyst (a large amount of catalyst is required to reach the reaction, reaching over 20 mol%). The present invention relates to a process for the production of cyclic compounds in the olefin metathesis reaction and the use of ruthenium catalysts for the production of cyclic olefins in olefin metathesis reactions. The solution through optimization, overcomes the current problems. The expected product is obtained with high efficiency and selectivity. The method can find extensive use in organic synthesis, requiring metathetic ring closure (RCM), among others in the fragrance industry. Advantages of the presented solution from UW: 1. high process efficiency 2. high selectivity 3. low cost of synthesis
