        Description

        The subject of the offer is a new vaccine-based cancer therapy based on genetically modified bacterial strain of Salmonella VNP20009 that is able to target tumor tissue. Tumour targeting was enhanced by antibody fragments specific to carcinoembryonic antigen. Further genetic modofications were introduced to increase apoptosis and necrosis within the tumour microenvironment, resulting in augmented cancer-specific immunity. The vaccine exhibited potent effciency in animal studies.

          Description

          The subject of the offer is a new material in gel form that allows for prolonged release of heparin. The material is a composition of algin and hydroxypropyl cellulose, which contains immobilised heparin. Prolonged release of heparin is maintained for as long as two weeks and the rate of the process can be controlled both by the composition and temperature. The offered material have potential applications in medicine for controlled administration of heparin, as well as in tissue engineering.
