Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Carbosilane dendrimers and their use as antiviralsThe research group in "Dendrimers for Biomedical Applications" of the University of Alcalá presents these highly branched macromolecules synthesized from a polyfunctional nucleus, of carbosilane structure and functionalized in its periphery with anionic groups that give the macromolecule a negative net charge. In addition, the invention relates to the use of the dendrimers as an antimicrobial and the process for obtaining them. The group seeks to reach collaboration agreements, licensing or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and biomedicine sectors in general.
Merck KGaA posted this:Technology for Lysophosphatidic Acid (LPA) Receptor antagonistsMerck has developed and patented the results of its intense R&D activities for the identification of small organic molecules as antagonists to certain LPA receptors (LPAR1, -R2, -R3). Herein described are LPA-R2 receptor selective inhibitors. Based upon a rational screening cascade established, compounds have been identified and characterized with regard to their specific in vitro and cellular activities. The package includes access to the IP, experimental results, and materials. Merck offers the unique chance to acquire this promising program.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Carbosilane dendrimers with polyphenolic groups. Uses as antioxidants and anticancer.The "Dendrimer for biomedical applications Research Group" at Alcalá University presents dendritic macromolecules with skeleton of carbosilane nature that contain in their structure polyphenolic groups (GPF). These compounds are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers, as well as anticancer agents, with application in sectors such as food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry. The invention provides a process for its procurance and uses.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New therapeutic agents for the treatment of inflammatory disordersThe research group, « Heterobetaines », from Alcalá University in colaboration with the research group « Hipersensibility to medicines and inmmunitary innate response » form IDI La Paz, present a new generation of inhibitors of alfa tumoral necrosis factor (TNF-α) production, useful to prevent and / or treat inflamatory diseases. The group is looking for technical cooperation or license agreements with pharmaceutical companies, research centers or diagnostic and treatment against inflammatory diseases research institutions.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Carbosilane dendritic compounds homo and heterofunctionalizedA Spanish research group from the Department of Organic and Inorganic Chemistry of Alcala University has developed a highly branched macromolecules called dendrimers or dendrons, with carbosilane structure and functionalized on its periphery with anionic or cationic groups, providing the macromolecule a net negative or positive charge respectively. The invention also concerns the dendrimers’ procurement process and their biomedical applications, particularly as carriers of drugs or nucleic acids (such ODN, siRNA, dsRNA or DNA), or as therapeutic agents with antiviral or antibacterial activity. The group is looking for companies in the biomedical sector to reach licensing agreements, collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Monoclonal antibody Miraculum for serological diagnostic in vitroNew IgG antibody suitable for specific agglutination of erythrocytes, particulary for blood typing. The unique IgG3 antibody Miraculum may be a valuable, high-quality, next generation blood typing reagent with extended shelf life. It does not lose its property after freezing. Its production is very efficient and can be more profitable compared to currently used IgM-class antibody. The invention consists in conversion of any non-agglutinating monoclonal antibody that recognizes an antigen on the surface of human erythrocytes into agglutinating molecule. The antibodies obtained in this way can be much more useful than IgM antibodies, which are currently used in agglutination assays.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Estimated binding energy model based in Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (3D QSAR), for the pharmaceutical industryA research group from the Pharmacology Department of Alcalá University has develop a technology that consists in a model to estimate the interaction energy with the receptor of a pharmaceutical compound that permits the prediction a priori of the activity of new compounds before their synthesis. The model, based on the 3D QSAR method uses application techniques for the study of the behavior of macromolecules and drug design. The group is looking for technical cooperation or commercial agreements with technical assistance.
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.
