These compounds show an improvement in the antiparasitic activity and reduced toxicity compared to the usual commercial treatments, causing damage to the key enzyme in the survival of the parasite without significantly affecting that of the human host. Therefore, they are a potential alternative to current treatments used to fight against Leishmaniasis or Chagas disease.

The biotechnological production of antimicrobial metabolites was carried out using Lactobacillus plantarum strains. Two industrial wastes, whey, and wine distilled lees (or vinasses) were assayed in order to make the process economically competitive with regard to the chemical one. The extracts are mainly composed by lactic acid, 3-phenyllactic and bacteriocins. Whey was enzymatically hydrolyzed and the solutions were fermented sequentially or simultaneously. The bioprocesses were carried out continuously or discontinuously

The type of partner sought is mainly for the regulatory codevelopment and the commercialization of our solution under a technology license agreement. The technology developed relates to a novel genetically engineered variety of maize accumulating extraordinary levels of carotenoids (β-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin and lutein). Poultry raised on this corn were healthy and exhibited substantially higher levels of resistance to coccidiosis, less foot pad dermatitis, reduced number of ulcers and less excretion of pathogen oocysts in feces. Carotenoids accumulate in several tissues (skin, dermis, muscles and fat), conferring high nutritional value and greater consumer acceptance.
