NeuroSoV develops new neurological diseases treatments

Exclusive interview for SPINOFF.COM with Dr. Ana Cristóvão, Founder of NeuroSoV, about neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's and stroke. Currently, NeuroSoV focuses on testing small molecules with therapeutic potential for Parkinson disease. The continuous aging of population offers the market space to grow and a consistent base of potential consumers. With this perspective, the investment by academia and pharma companies in the development of new drugs for Parkinson’s disease will grow, representing a great opportunity of new customers for NeuroSoV.  It aims to increase its potential business to other neurological disorders, like Alzheimer's Disease and stroke. NeuroSoV is dedicated to evaluating preclinical neurotoxicity and the effectiveness of screening solutions for drugs for Parkinson’s and other ND diseases. The company already has several international clients in the area of the pharmaceutical industry.

Pharmaceutical 3D printing

Exclusive interview for SPINOFF.COM with Dr. Alvaro Goyanes, FabRx Ltd., Founding Partner and Development Director, about 3D printing, which is an exciting new technology, with almost limitless potential to pharmaceutical and medical science

FabRx is the creation of academics from University College London, who saw the potential of 3D printing technology for making better medicines. Rapid development in the field of 3D printing will lead to the fact that patients will be able to have access to personalized medicines prepared depending on their specific needs. The technology of three-dimensional printing of medical products will allow manufacturing of prescribed medicines at the dispensing point, hospitals or pharmacies, or in the far future even at home. The technology will help reduce the prices of rare medicines, increase their availability, and reduce the number of counterfeits.

A novel separating device can quickly detect cancer

Scientists developed an innovative nanodevice, which based on the technology of cancer (lat. Carcinoma) biomarkers isolating. It has the ability to detach microRNA as cancer biomarker from DNA/RNA mixtures received from cells in less than 100 ms. Due to the speed of separation and resolution, it will provide the fast diagnostic of different types of cells.

The subcutaneous drug dispenser activates the medication at the right time

A new technology for storing molecules, which allows the introduction of drugs under the skin and activate them at the right time, was developed by scientists from the University of Freiburg in Germany. A controlled delivery of bioactive substances with local restriction is of interest in medicine and life sciences, covering a large field from basic research to practical applications. For this purpose, spatial and temporal control of release is as important as the possibility to precisely adjust the number of released substances which can be from small-sized ions to large molecules or proteins.

Cheap paper test for malaria and cancer

A cheap test for malaria and cancer was developed by chemists at Ohio State University. Patients need to drip blood at home on paper strips and mail it to the laboratory. A call to the doctor comes only if the results are positive. Scientists stored the strips away and re-tested them every few days to see if you the signal detected by the mass spectrometer would fade over time. The signal was just as strong after 30 days as on day one. Thus, the analysis is suitable for residents of remote regions since even a month later the samples are suitable for study.
