Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Biotechnological production of 11α hydroxylated steroids using recombinant bacteria.CSIC has developed a procedure for the biotechnological production of 11α hydroxylated steroids by generating and subsequent use of recombinant bacteria. These recombinant bacteria allow to perform microbial biotransformation processes that result in 11αhydroxylated steroid compounds from raw materials such as phytosterols and intermediate products efficiently and economically. These compounds have numerous applications in pharmacology. Companies are sought for implementing and commercializing the new technology under patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Compounds for the treatment of optic neuritisCSIC and the University of Athens have found that secoiridoids, such as oleacein and oleocanthal, are useful to prevent or treat neuropathies that conduct to optic nerve injury, such as optic neuritis. A company dealing with pharmaceutical or nutraceutical compositions for ophtalmic applications is sought for licensing agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Peptide for cancer control linked to IL13RCSIC has developed a peptide capable of inhibiting the signaling of IL-13 mediated by IL13Rα2. This peptide alone or within a nanoparticle or virus-like particles can be used in a pharmaceutical composition for the treatment of pathologies in which IL13Rα2 is overexpressed. This composition would be useful in the treatment and control of metastasis of colon cancer and other tumors (i.e glioblastoma), as well as in other pathologies such as asthma, atopic dermatitis or fibrosis. Industrial partners are being sought to develop and commercialized the products through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Antibiotics to treat diseases caused by HelicobacterCSIC, the University of Zaragoza, Institute Pasteur, IISA and ARAID have developed chemical derivatives that act selectively against the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, managing to reduce the bacterial load and even eradicate gastric infections caused by it. Industrial partners from the pharmaceutical industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Potyvirus viral detection kitCSIC and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a method for the detection and quantification of all species of the viral genus Potyvirus present in plant samples. The different species of the genus Potyvirus cause losses of up to 90% of production in crops of high economic interest, such as potato, maize or sugar cane. So far, the only way to identify that the crop was being attacked by a virus of the genus Potyvirus was to make specific detections for each species of the genus. With this new system it is possible to determine if in the samples coming from a culture there is presence of one of the 148 known species of the genus Potyvirus or of some unknown variant of these species. Companies in the agro-food sector interested in incorporating this kit for viral detection are being sought. An offer for Patent Licensing
