Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Microorganism and method to produce urolithinsProfessor Francisco Tomas group at CEBAS-CSIC has isolated and characterized the first urolithins- producing microorganism from ellagic acid and ellagitannins present in the diet. A urolithin producing method based on the use of the mentioned microorganism has been developed and both, the microorganism and the method are part of a Spanish priority patent application assigned to CSIC. Biotech companies, functional food or nutraceutical companies are sought for license and/or development agreements. An offer for Patent Licensing

Fundació URV posted this:Gallic Acid for the treatment of pathologies produced by hyperactivation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systemGallic Acid is a naturally occurring phenolic compound that is widely distributed throughout the plant kingdom. Different studies have demonstrated the strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic and anticancer properties of GA, and daily intake may reduce the risk of diseases and bring health benefits. More recently, Gallic Acid has also been studied for its beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases. It inhibits dyslipidemia, hepatosteatosis and oxidative stress in high-fat diet fed rats, protects the myocardium against isoproterenol-induced oxidative stress in rats, ameliorates the heart-function defects of myocardial dysfunction associated with streptozotocin-induced type-1 diabetic rats and exhibits anti-hyperglycemic and lipid-lowering properties in high-fat diet mice. Gallic Acid is commonly used as antioxidant by the food industry. However, until now, it is not known that the gallic acid could block the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which is the innovative aspect discover for the Nutrigenomic Group for the Gallic Acid. The inhibition of the RAAS by Gallic Acid is considered to be of special relevance because RAAS overactivity is currently associated with not only hypertension but also vascular inflammation, the development of atherosclerosis, left ventricular hypertrophy, nephrosclerosis and cardiovascular events. This discovery has a big importance because it opens a wide field of use for this compound in the food, nutraceutical or pharmaceutical industry.
IMIM Institut Recerca Hospital del Mar posted this:New phenolic natural extract obtained from olive and herbal spices with proven cardioprotective effect.This product consists of a natural extract wich combines olive oil phenols and other bioactive compounds from herbal species. The bioactive compounds of the natural extract have been characterized and quantified. Its use allows a novel therapeutic approach by means of the combination of complementary antioxidants from different origins that provides additional health benefits. Consumer acceptance has previously been assessed by conducting a panel test. Data from a randomized, controlled, crossover, clinical trial showed an improvement of vivo endothelial function and HDL subclass distribution, in humans. These effects were obtained with a low daily intake of the extract.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Improved procedure to obtain active principles in Aloe leavesA technology based firm, set up by researchers of Alcalá University, has developed a procedure to obtain active principles from Aloe leaves. With this procedure, a product with pharmacological, cosmetic and nutritional use is obtained. The resultant product could have therapeutic and/or food properties. Toxic compounds as phenols are removed. The researchers are interested in join venture and/or manufacture agreements.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Protein separation by using anionic carbosilane dendrimers.BIODEN research group (Biomedical applications of dendrimers) from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Alcala along with the research group of Micro(sep) from the Department of Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Engineering have developed a technology based on the use of anionic dendrimers as nanoadditives in capillary electrophoresis (CE) for protein separation, more specifically for obtaining protein profiles useful in food characterization. The groups look for companies of chemical, pharmaceutical or biotechnological sector to sign research collaboration agreements or license agreements.
