Antibodies and other proteins are a multi-billion-dollar medicinal market. However, proteins often have to be administered at high concentrations, which is difficult because proteins tend to aggregate or clump together under these conditions. Protein aggregates limit therapy efficacy and can be a health risk. This technology uses a novel RNA formulation approach to dissolve proteins at high concentration and prevent
Smart textiles have great potential in the fields of sport science and medicine, and even in the entertainment industry (e.g. motion-capture technology). This technology enhances that potential, by creating a 3D digital twin of a smart textile, enabling measurement of deformation and movement of the smart textile as it is worn.
Whilst conventional hearing aids greatly improve the lives of people with hearing difficulties, they cause problems by being worn externally – for example they can cause stigma and affect daily activities such as bathing. This technology is an implantable hearing aid microphone, which, when combined with a cochlear implant, would be a completely internal hearing aid.
Damaged skin after laser therapy is painful and requires treatment with products that can soothe and help the skin to heal as fast as possible. This product is a unique and eco-friendly solution that not only moisturizes and relieves damaged skin, but further has skin regenerative properties to enable faster healing.
With the growing awareness of antimicrobial resistance, new antimicrobial materials have gained importance in many applications. This group of researchers have developed microparticles with long lasting antimicrobial properties based on cellulose, a fibre abundantly found in plants. The product is an alternative to nano-biocides, such as metal and other engineered nanomaterials, which are limited by their toxicity.
Bone sample cylinders are difficult to obtain because they need to be much larger than bone marrow biopsies. Small biopsies break easily, limiting their utility for analysis of diseases. Obtaining large intact bone samples is technically difficult with conventional instruments, requiring pressure that is traumatic for the patient and can easily damage the bone. This technology is a simple to
Many of us have formed a love-hate relationship with hand sanitizer in 2020. Though necessary, many have an unpleasant smell, cause skin irritation, or feel sticky and gross. This is a hand sanitizer product that combines pharmaceutical ingredients and natural essential oils, to create a pleasant smelling, soft feeling, and effective antibacterial/antiviral agent.
Hand and finger physiotherapy exercises have been shown to relieve pain and prevent arthritic joints from getting worse. However, such exercises are challenging for people with arthritis because such movements are painful. This trumpet toy helps motivate people to do these exercises by making music and light effects in response to correct movements.
Blood clotting, or hemostatic, agents are a medical necessity to prevent bleeding after injury or during surgery. Currently available hemostatic agents are limited in their utility (e.g. poor shelf-life, toxic side-effects) or come from animal sources. This hemostatic agent is derived from a biopolymer found in fungi. It has exceptional blood-clotting activity, is antimicrobial, and biocompatible.
Many cancers are driven by hyperactive cell signaling proteins, known as kinases. Drugs that inhibit these kinases make attractive anticancer therapies. A bottleneck for kinase inhibitor development is being able to test whether inhibition is effective, for which current testing methods are inadequate. This method directly measures kinase activity in live cells, to better assess potential kinase inhibitors.
