Hiloprobe
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.

Insecticider
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.

Instrube Health AB
Has designed an app – Memotus – tailor made for caregivers to communicate with patients in a safe, easy, fast and legal way. Texts, pictures, videos and documents are sent safely. Identification is done via BankID.

Lipum
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.

MetaCuRum Biotech
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.

Nordic Health Innovation
With the help of technology, we contribute to more accessible health care for those who need it most. We live by the motto “Empowering the patient”, which means that we want to put the patient in the driver’s seat when it comes to their own health and information that is collected about the individual, for example measurement data from health searches.

Omnio
Omnio AB, is a biotechnical research and development company with the aim to develop pro-inflammatory protein based drug candidates based on the plasma protein plasminogen. Plasminogen occurs naturally in sufficient levels in the circulation of healthy people, and can thus be derived through blood plasma fractionation procedures, such as the Cohn Process or ProMetic’s PPPSTM process.

Pro Test Diagnostics
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.

Quretech Bio
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.
