Protect and Prevent: Enteric-Coated Lactoferrin Particles for Enhanced Digestive Defense
Food poisonings are a common occurrence when traveling in countries with lower hygiene standards. These incidents can ruin family or business trips, leading to negative experiences and potential business consequences.
Microfluidics-based preparation of cross-linked enzyme aggregates
Enzymes are widely used in various industrial processes, but traditional methods of immobilization using particle carriers have limitations such as low activity retention and mass transfer limitations. Microfluidics-based methods for enzyme immobilization offer a promising alternative, generating stable and uniform enzyme aggregates without particle carriers.
Process of purification of osteopontin and glycomacropeptide from whey
Background Whey, particularly acid whey, often represents a major part of wastewater from the dairy industry and thus a significant burden for the environment, although it contains many valuable ingredients. Osteopontin and glycomacropeptide are whey proteins with great economic potential. Both are used in functional foods, medical foods and as
N,N-dialkyl-4-(2-ethylindan-2-yl)-1H-imidazole-1-carboxamides and related compounds for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
Background The most common type of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a progressive decline of memory and other cognitive functions due to a plethora of pathological changes in the central nervous system. By some estimates, over 50 million people are currently beset by Alzheimer’s disease, with
Compressible and free flowing co-processed mesoporous silica for the production of amorphous solid dispersions containing active pharmaceutical ingredient
Background Single unit dosage forms suitable for oral administration of the active pharmaceutical ingredients are usually formulated in the form of solid formulations. In addition to the active pharmaceutical ingredients, these forms, tablets and capsules, contain pharmaceutically acceptable substances called excipients, which are not active and have no therapeutic effect.
Antiviral and antibacterial textiles functionalized with natural biologically active dye
Emodin was chemically modified by introducing different functional groups that affect its colour, textile adsorption, antibacterial (MSSA) and antiviral (human coronavirus NL63, the best model for SARS-CoV-2) properties.
New immunostimulants as vaccine adjuvants and drugs for the immunotherapy of cancer and infectious diseases
Our specification refers to novel conjugated compounds that function as immunostimulants and are useful for the treatment of viral, bacterial, fungal and protozoal infections, tumours or cancers and other immunological diseases. Additionally, the conjugated compounds of the invention can be used as vaccine adjuvants.
Nitroxoline for prevention and treatment of coronavirus disease
The advantage of nitroxoline over other candidate drugs for the treatment of Covid 19 (repurposing drugs – amantadine, teicoplanin) is that the mechanism of action on the target is precisely defined, since years ago we determined the spatial structure of the complex with cathepsin B.
Bacillus subtilis strain with strong inhibition of enteropathogenic and foodborne pathogenic bacteria
Bacillus subtilis strain PS-216 has been shown to have strong inhibitory activity against enteropathogenic and/or foodborne pathogenic bacteria, such as Campylobacter jejuni. Particularly, our innovative product uses the Bacillus subtilis strain PS-216 for the preparation of food compositions and probiotic compositions.
Hydrodynamic cavitation wastewater treatment
Our invention is an alternative technological solution: a new and efficient combination of hydrodynamic cavitation, photochemical and photocatalytic processes. It is a combination of green oxidation processes that do not require the addition of external oxidants, and thus do not contribute to the formation of secondary pollutants in the treated
Our invention combines two methods of water purification, cavitation and plasma. Both methods are effective in cleaning the water. The advantage of the invention over other methods of water purification is mainly in energy efficiency and the fact that no additional chemicals are needed for efficient operation.
