Germans Trias i Pujol Health Sciences Research Institute posted this:Drug Delivery PlatformColonoscopic procedures have become widespread in recent years since colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have become prevalent disorders. Their use has expanded as diagnostic and therapeutic tools in both elective and emergency situations. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the most common cancer in both men and women. In the case of polypectomy, as in the case of surgery, the stabilization of the primary tumors could allow the use of optimizing chemotherapy and therefore an overall improvement in the treatment of the disease.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US8239176 (B2) - Simulation Methods and Systems for Carriers Having MultiplicationsCan be used for financial analysis and traffic analysis software: A simulation of a multiplication process includes tracing histories of a plurality of carriers, increasing a weight factor of a carrier to simulate a multiplication of the carrier, and summing the number of the plurality of carriers. Each of the plurality of carriers is multiplied by its respective weight factor.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US8238513 (B2) - IMAGING SYSTEM AND METHOD UTILIZING PRIMARY RADIATIONAn imaging system and method for producing an image based on primary radiation. A separate image based solely on scattered radiation may also be obtained and may be of practical interests. The separation of primary and scattered radiation is achieved by utilizing a small beam exposure and a cone beam exposure, then the primary and scatter images are reconstructed based on a pencil beam model or from a Monte Carlo method. Other embodiments disclosed include two-layer detector arrays or volumetric detector arrays that measure the relationship between the dose and the position, from which the primary and scattered radiation can be extracted. In addition, by limiting a readout time of a detector, primary radiation component may be read because of a delay in the scattered radiation.

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.
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.

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 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.
