The method consists of the protein extraction from the olive seeds using a previously developed process, and digest the extracted proteins with Thermolysin enzyme, allowing to obtain peptides with antihypertensive capacity in vitro, or with Alcalase enzyme leading to obtain a peptide extract with antioxidant properties. The group seeks to establish commercial , licensing or collaboration agreements with companies of the food and pharmaceutical sectors interested in both the use strategy of this waste material (olive pits), as in the use of the found bioactive peptides.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Device and method for ventricular repolarization alternans detection by windowing.A Spanish research group from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications at University of Alcalá (Spain) has designed a device and method for detecting ventricular repolarization alternans based on continuous time analysis and the extraction of the information using windowing. As a main feature, the method presents high robustness against noise and it is very robust against variability of heart rate due to standardization techniques used. Moreover, it includes a procedure to separate the repolarization information from artifacts. Because of these characteristics, it is particularly suitable for implementation in portable monitoring devices and implantable devices. The group is looking for companies of Medical equipment and health technology to reach licensing agreements or collaboration and commercial agreements for technical assistance.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Iron oxide nanoparticles (IOP) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other inflammatory conditionsA novel approach for the treatment of AMI has been developed using IOPs. IOPs, when injected into the infarcted myocardium, lead to improved heart function after MI. IOPs activate anti-inflammatory macrophages and thus promote tissue healing and repair and prevent myocardial remodeling and dysfunction. Potential Applications IOPs can be used to treat AMI and other inflammatory conditions associated with pro-inflammatory activated macrophages and to promote tissue healing and repair. Advantages ? IOPs are nontoxic ? IOPs are FDA approved for use in humans for MRI imaging Stage In vivo studies in mouse and rat models of MI and heart failure Project ID : 10-2011-247
