Universitat de Lleida posted this:Treatment and prevention of Amyotrophic Lateral SclerosisA group of researchers in the University of Lleida have preclinical evidence for the positive effects of a peptide administration in the mouse model for ALS (mSOD1G93A mice). When treated with a solution containing interleukin-4 polypeptide (IL4), the team is able to prolong survival, delay the manifestation of the most apparent symptoms of the disease and improve the clinical course of the disease attenuating body weight loss and improving the motor behavior. The University of Lleida seeks an industrial partner willing to further develop this technology under a license agreement.
Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute (IGTP) posted this:Apotransferrin to treat strokeOur group has demonstrated that intravenous administration of apotransferrin strongly reduces the brain damage (up to 75%) in 3 different rat models including both transient and permanent ischemic stroke and improves the neurological impairment (neuroscore 60%) induced by stroke. Thus, this new approach may benefit not only stroke patients who can be treated with current treatment to induce recanalization (transient stroke) but also the 80% of patients who could not benefit from current therapies directed to induce recanalization of the artery (permanent strokes). Results in the preclinical area and some results obtained in serum of stroke patients lead us to think that apotransferrin is a good neuroprotector in the early stages of the ischemic event.
Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute (IGTP) posted this:Diagnostic biomarkers for dementia with Lewy BodiesThe present data provide a solid basis for the development of genetic biomarkers for the early identification of patients suffering from dementia with Lewy bodies and to classify them into specific molecular subtypes. One of the biomarkers correlates with the development of Lewy pathology in the brain and may be useful to monitor the success of possible alpha-synuclein antiaggregatory therapies.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:New method to increase yolk color and egg nutritional qualityThe University of Lleida seeks industrial partners with expertise in the sector of crop production to adopt a new technology of optimized feed solution for egg producers (poultry market). The type of partner sought is for the regulatory codevelopment and commercialization of our solution under a technology license agreement.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:Method based on a nutritional intervention to fight coccidiosisWe seek industrial partners with expertise in the sector of crop production to adopt a new technology useful to deliver optimized feed solution to fight coccidiosis. The type of partner sought is mainly for the regulatory codevelopment and the commercialization of our solution under a technology license agreement. The technology developed relates to a novel genetically engineered variety of maize accumulating extraordinary levels of carotenoids (β-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin and lutein). Poultry raised on this corn were healthy and exhibited substantially higher levels of resistance to coccidiosis, less foot pad dermatitis, reduced number of ulcers and less excretion of pathogen oocysts in feces. Carotenoids accumulate in several tissues (skin, dermis, muscles and fat), conferring high nutritional value and greater consumer acceptance.
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla posted this:ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGNED FOR DETECTING AND TRANSFORMING THE PATHS OF THE COSMIC RAYSThe cosmic piano is an electronic system designed for detecting and transforming the paths of the cosmic rays into different hearing frequencies and light flashes. The invention comprises a block for discriminating and conditioning the signal detected by the photomultipliers, as well as a storing, coincidence, logic and trigger block, and a block for activating the output signals for generating the sounds and light flashes. The system includes different configurations for modifying the coincidence logic module so as to obtain different operation modes. The operation modes may condition the outlet of sound and light by means of logic operations. Said operation modes facilitate the implementation of different activities focused on the scientific disclosure such as exhibitions, museum display rooms or school laboratories.
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla posted this:LOGICAL COUNTER OF SUBATOMIC PARTICLESA device for quantifying particles, which is characterised in that it comprises: a) an electronic system of signals produced by detectors reacting to transiting subatomic particles that are electrically charged and generate negative pulses, b) four detectors for fixing the discrimination voltage level, the duration time of the test and for obtaining the number of events per channel, the number of coincidences between the activated channels and the frequency of particles detected per time unit, c) a discriminator with a reference voltage selecting the detected events according to the fixed level, d) a memory module, e) a trigger module, and f) a coincidence logic module that makes the decisions for accepting the detected event or only increasing the counters of the channels that are activated and have information to process.

University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Dual Probes for Flow Cytometry and Mass CytometryResearchers of the University of Granada have developed probes based on nanoparticles, both fluorescent and functionalized with metals, which act as dual probes, and can be used for both flow cytometry (FACS –Fluorescent-Activated Cell Sorting) and mass cytometry (CyTOF -Cytometry by Time-Of-Flight-). The probes can be used for bar coding of living cells or carrying out in vivo studies of different cell lineages through cell co-cultures as well as the activation of drug precursors through cytoplasmic catalysis of organometallic reactions inside living cells.
University of Huelva posted this:Synchronized exchange energy method and device between users of the electric grid for decentralized managementThe method comprises defining fragments of energy to be demanded at given time intervals by consumers of the electrical network, negotiating their purchase with providers or other users capable of bidding, synchronizing production and consumption, and storaging or providing the difference between the negotiated fragment and the amount of energy actually demanded or suplyed with zero-impact on the grid

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Innovative process of integrated culture of marine speciesResearchers at the University of Alicante have developed a procedure that combines the culture of several marine species in the same place in offshore areas, as part of an integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) system. The main culture may be any of the species commonly used in marine aquaculture as fed fish or shellfish, and the second one involves the culture of amphipods that feeds on organic waste generated by the main culture and has an important commercial potential as food resource. The main advantage of this technology is the cost-effectiveness of implementing this procedure in sea cages because with the same investment and infrastructure is raising an additional species reusing existing waste and diversifying production. Thus, it can be used in the industrial sectors of aquaculture. The research group is looking for companies acquiring this invention for: commercial agreement or technical assistance or manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation or a combination of some of these services.
