The group is looking for pharmaceutical companies interested in manufacturing an active ingredient for the formulation of a leishmanicidal drug based on these compounds. The group proposes the signing of a patent license agreement, a collaboration agreement or a commercial agreement with technical
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Endothelial microvesicles with microbicidal effect for the preparation of a medicament or for a direct useThe research group "Cell damage associated with senescence" of the University of Alcalá presents the microbicidal capacity of endothelial microvesicles. These vesicles destroy the main pathogens involved in sepsis and even strains derived from them resistant to multiple antibiotics. They have also been shown to be effective against the biofilms that form these microorganisms. The group seeks to reach licensing agreements, cooperation or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with pharmaceutical companies interested in the design of new medicines.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:OnTimeBio LTDOnTimeBio is developing a highly sensitive blood test to enable timely detection and monitoring of diseases. OnTimeBio's product utilizes advanced computational approaches with genomic and epigenomic approaches in order to enable a quantitative and exact readout of tissue dynamics across the organs of the human body. Applying the technology across multiple diseases, including cancer, metabolic, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases, can reduce patient suffering and enable better treatment outcomes while lowering healthcare costs. For developers of novel therapeutics, the technology provides a lens to the body's response across all targeted tissues. This allows better patient stratification and precise and swift monitoring of patients' responses to new therapies. Project ID : 26-2017-4403
UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Fluorescent compounds, methods of manufacturing and uses thereofA group of researchers from a Portuguese university developed a family of new fluorophores to be used in biological imaging, either in cells or in entire organisms, in fluorescence microscopy techniques, including live cell imaging. The fluorophores are not toxic to cells and organisms, and light up cells by binding to organelles such as the Golgi apparatus, nucleus, and particularly lipid droplets. Importantly, the fluorophores change color with the polarity of the environment. The university is looking for companies that would be interested in developing this technology further through partnership, or in commercializing the probes through licensing or acquisition of the patent.

IMIM Institut Recerca Hospital del Mar posted this:New method for the determination of the risk of atypical fractures in patients treated with bone remodelling inhibitors.Up to date there is not any technology for detecting the risk to suffer atypical fractures related to long-term treatment with bone remodelling inhibitors. The invention will be of usefulness for individualize treatments in patients treated with bone remodelling inhibitors by detecting the individual risk of suffering atypical fractures. The invention is planned to be included into an in-vitro diagnostic tool for the atypical fracture, which will be included into standard disease management protocols and therefore used routinely by physicians prior to and after the prescription of bone remodelling drugs and further osteoporosis drugs. Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease with a characteristic decrease in bone mass and density which can lead to an increased risk of fracture. There are two types of osteoporosis: •Type 1: most common in women after menopause, named postmenopausal osteoporosis •Type 2: Senile osteoporosis, occurs mostly after age of 75 years and has equally effect in women and in men Based on the WHO diagnostic criteria, approximately 22 million women and 5.5 million men aged between 50 and 84 years had osteoporosis in the European Union (EU) in 2010, whilst osteoporosis can be found in the list of 10 most important diseases named by the WHO. Due to changes in population demography, the number of men and women with osteoporosis might rise from 27.5 million in 2010 to 33.9 million in 2025, corresponding to an increase of 23%. The number of new fractures in the EU in 2010 was estimated at 3,5 million cases, in between these approximately 620.000 hip fractures, 520.000 vertebral fractures, 560.000 forearm fractures and 1.800.000 fractures of i.e. pelvis, rib, humerus, tibia, fibula, clavicle, scapula, sternum, and other femoral fractures. Two thirds of all fractures occurred in women. In 2010, the number of deaths causally related to fractures was estimated at 43.000. The corresponding cost of osteoporosis in the EU, also in 2010 figures, including pharmacological intervention, was estimated at €37 billion out of which costs of treating fractures represented 66%, pharmacological prevention 5% and long term fracture care 29%. The total health burden was estimated at 1 180 000 lost Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY) for the EU. The total cost in the EU might rise from €98 billion in 2010 to €120 billion Euro in 2025. The use of osteoporosis drugs has increased considerably. Approved pharmacological interventions (bisphosphonates, strontium ranelate, raloxifene, denosumab and parathyroid hormone peptides) are widely available but their use is restricted by reimbursement policies. Alendronate (a bisphosphonate) is the most commonly prescribed agent, accounting for approximately a quarter of the total value of sales. The potential users/partners are pharmaceutical companies, excluding pure generic companies (lacking development resources, relevant lobbying and sales channel to the policy makers and practitioner) selling drugs in the indication osteoporosis
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Procedure for obtaining peptides with antioxidant and antihypertensive properties from olive seeds.A research group from the Analytical Chemistry Department at Alcalá University has developed a procedure from which it is possible to obtain peptides with antihypertensive and antioxidant capacity of isolated proteins from olive seed by enzymatic digestion. 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.

Creative Biogene posted this:Human P2RY6-FLAG Stable Cell Line-1321N1The human P2Y6 receptor is a member of the G protein-coupled P2 receptor family that responds specifically to the extracellular nucleotide uridine diphosphate (UDP). The distribution of the P2Y6 receptor is widespread including heart, blood vessels and brain. P2Y6 receptors are significantly upregulated in T cells infiltrating regions of inflamed bowel and are involved in monocytic release of IL-8 in response to UDP or lipopolysaccharide (LPS).
