In addition, over the last few years, many new discoveries come up about selenium potentialities in the animal and human diet, such as its power anticarcinogen. Considering the important nutritional rule of this component and the need of a production models more and more environmentally-friendly, the present invention describes a production process of selenium enriched yeasts based on agro-industrial residues, such as sugarcane bagasse and rice bran, which serve as carbon and nitrogen sources. Purposes: This innovative biotechnological production process uses agro-industrial residues as substrate, resulting in a biomass of yeast that contains high selenium levels. Animals, as know, obtain selenium mainly through the aliments; then, this biomass can be used as a component in the animal nutrition to improve its development, fertility, eggs quality, milk and meat. Furthermore, it can act as component in the prevention of many diseases, for example, cancer. Target Market: Agro industrial, Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Industries.

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
