  • Biocatalysis of a novel fluorinated sugar [18-F]-FDR for PET imaging

    Combining the sequential use of 2 enzymes – fluorinase and nucleoside hydrolase – we have successfully produced a new radiotracer with potential as an imaging biomarker for PET scans. The fluorinase enzyme combines fluorine with S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to generate 5'-fluro-5'-deoxy...

  • Synergistic antifungal combination

    Candida species are a major cause of catheter-related nosocomial bloodstream infections. We have identified that the combination of an echinocandin antifungal with certain antimicrobial peptides results in potent, synergistic inhibition of yeast pathogens in vitro, so offering a potential combinatio...

  • Fluorinase - an enzymatic process for the generation of organo-fluorine compounds

    Organo-fluorine compounds are of great importance in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and agrochemical industries. For example, Prozac and 5-Fluorouracil are organo-fluorine compounds.

  • Transforming Pharmaceutical Crystal Forms

    The innovation provides a gas-induced method for phase-transforming organic solids, such as pharmaceutical crystals. The inventive method subjects the polymorphs of pharmaceutical agents to various pressures of gases (such as CO2, N2O, and CH4) to induce phase transform with ease.

  • Catanostics - Non-Invasive Early Stage Cataract Diagnosis & Severity Quantification tool

    Catanostics (Cataract Diagnostics) offers an alternative to the slit lamp currently used for cataract diagnosis before referring a patient for cataract surgery. Our non-invasive fluorescence scan offers "better diagnosis" through non-subjective analysis of data on cataract symptoms & severity lea...

  • JournalTOCs – The Table of Content Search Engine for Journals

    JournalTOCs is the largest, searchable, freely available collection of scholarly journal 'Tables of Contents' in the world. It's for anyone looking for the latest papers published in International scholarly literature. A free service, customized versions with added functionality are available for li...

  • Safer water - polymers for enhanced cryptosporidium recovery

    Polymers promoting or preventing adhesion of the waterborne pathogen, Cryptosporidium, have been identified and can be used in filtration products to enhance Cryptosporidium recovery rate for drinking water quality monitoring.

  • The eFinger - non-subjective Prostate Examination & Prostate Cancer Indication Tool

    Prostate Cancer, caught early enough, is increasingly treatable. Digital rectal examination of the Prostate is often the first stage of prostate cancer screening but is somewhat subjective. eFinger offers an alternative - a numerical non-subjective indication based on prostate tissue properties to p...

    Expires: Created:
  • An early stage therapeutic target for bile duct cancer

    Notch-3 signalling is the key driver of tumour development in bile duct cancer, with Notch-3 receptor differentially overexpressed in comparison to other notch receptors. Therapeutic targeting of this receptor could provide anti-tumorigenic effects in patients, and act as a chemotherapeutic agent wi...
