Pro Test Diagnostics is developing a routine test to monitor and detect illegal use of one’s own stored blood to enhance performance in elite athletes. The ABT™-test can expose athletes who have used blood doping and the result is not affected by the athlete’s training intensity, the use of high-altitude training or the use of low oxygen tents.
We are developing an oral patch, which will be a patented galenic formulation, providing rapid pain relief for the patient. The product can theoretically reach a target patient population of 10-20,000 patients annually in Sweden, and considerably higher in international markets.
Delayed or inappropriate treatment of anaerobic infections may result in severe disease or death. With knowledge levels dropping in clinical laboratories, the need for anaerobic proficiency increase. Dianox is developing educational solutions to halt this trend in health care.
Quretech Bio develops innovative antibiotics by stopping bacterial virulence with a first-in-class active substance. The approach is not to kill bacteria, but make them harmless – thus complementing existing treatments and making established antibiotic drugs more effective without causing resistance.
We aim to develop a novel therapeutic for treatment of aggressive prostate cancer. The treatment is intended to improve the quality of life and extend the life expectancy in patients by preventing the formation of metastases. The approach is an antibody that is expected to have fewer side-effects than current treatment options for this indication.
Acne vulgaris affects more than 80 percent of people at some point in their life and frequently continues into adulthood. Recent data suggest that there are about 700 million people living with acne around the world. This case focuses on a novel approach to fighting acne without the hazards of antibiotic resistance development.
Brain stimulation offer digital evidence-based virtual reality rehabilitation for improved quality of life for stroke patients. We offer an accessible treatment strategy for patients suffering from neglect with shorter stay at hospital and eventually less need of support in their daily life.
We are developing safe and resistance-breaking molecules that target an enzyme essential for nerve signaling in mosquitoes via a new mode of action. In contrast to current insecticides, we have designed our molecules to specifically target mosquitoes, without affecting other organisms.
Current drugs against mycoses are toxic. We aim to develop a new class of antifungal agents that disarm the invasive forms of fungal cells instead of merely eradicating them. This has two advantages: The new compounds are less aggressive for the host and resistance development is reduced.
Lipum develops a biological pharmaceutical for a novel mechanism of action in the treatment of chronic inflammations. Essentially, the drug will be a monoclonal antibody directed towards the protein bile salt-stimulated lipase, BSSL. One indication is as an orphan drug for the more severe forms of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), providing patients with an effective treatment alternative having less adverse effects than the drugs used today.
Hiloprobe AB has developed a superior method of diagnosing and prognosing patients with colorectal cancer after surgery. Their innovative clinical tool – the ColoNode is far more accurate than current standard procedures, opening up the possibility of personalized medicine within the colorectal cancer field.
