Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Double port injector to corneal transplant DMEKThe Reseacrh group in Cell biology of solid tumors and tisular regeneration from Alcala University and the Research group in Cellular Engineering from University from Hospital La Paz, have developed a new injector designed to reduce endotellial damage during the corneal endothelial graft implantation in eye´s anterior chamber. The group is looking for cooperation or commercial agreement with companies manufacturers of sanitary products and medical devices, ophthalmological clinics and hospitals.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Novel self-expanding polyurethane foams intended for inert filling of pleural and other human cavities.The Adhesion and Adhesives Laboratory of the University of Alicante has developed a new polymeric foaming material for in-situ filling and sealing of internal irregular different shaped human cavities, intended for patients suffering chronic pleural cavities and in-field injuries caused by bullets or accidental event leaving open blood vessels. The new foam is composed of two separate liquid components that can be mixed in a two-body syringe in such a way that the foaming time can be modulated for allowing the foam formation at the end of the syringe needle. The new polymeric foam can self-expanded and self-modelated for avoiding complications in open internal cavities caused by infections, blooding, fistulae, dyspnea or sepsis. The new foam is easily applicable, safe for biological tissues, and its use avoid the use of the current aggressive treatments in pleural cavities. It is looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for its commercial exploitation.
Fundació URV posted this:Potentiometric sensor for the quantitative determination of creatininePotentiometric sensor for the quantitative determination of creatinine in biological fluids and other aqueous media. By a new ionophore incorporated into a polymeric membrane that allows screening creatinine real samples. The use of said ionophore in the polymer membrane solve the selectivity problem found in other methods.

Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia posted this:Optical Quantification of enzymatic activity: a non-invasive diagnosis toolThe platform allows for accurate measurement of the enzymatic activity thanks to the presence of an optical signal that remains unchanged during digestion and serves as a ruler to which modifications of another signal, affected by enzymatic activity, is compared. The platform can be used in small devices, at point of care and in non-invasive diagnostic procedures. The platform is also highly versatile as a simple modification of the particle will allow using it in totally different diagnostic applications.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Double mesh prosthesis that corrects defects in the abdominal wall and prevents adhesion formation at the peritoneal interfaceA research group from the Surgery Department of Alcala University has designed an implantable prosthesis made of two meshes joined together, for abdominal surgery uses. This prosthesis prevents the erosion of the viscera by promoting mesothelial deposition. Both meshes induce fibroblast proliferation and collagen deposition achieving the definitive repair of the defect at the expense of connective tissue. This research group is looking for manufacturing and license agreements.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:MetaboShield- a new solution for obesityExcessive calorie intake leads to obesity, which is associated with co-morbidities and mortalities, altogether costing the U.S. economy $147 billion annually. Weight loss programs and exercise regimen have a failure rate upward of 85% due to low compliance. While bariatric surgery is highly effective, only 1% of eligible patients elect to undergo the surgery due to associated risks and complication rates. There is, therefore, an unmet need for minimally invasive bariatric procedures. MetaboShield is an innovative endoscopic procedure to reduce calorie intake by inserting a sleeve within the small intestine. The sleeve is held with a unique spine and ribs structure that adheres to the small intestine architecture and does not exert constant pressure on the intestinal walls. The novelty of this solution is a reduction in the effective gut length and absorption area with no incisions, no constant pressure or tissue damage, and no general anesthesia.
