Novel polymers which resist bacterial attachment
Antimicrobial Urinary Catheter The Opportunity ·We have developed a novel polymer which prevents bacterial adhesion. ·We are using it to coat urinary catheters to prevent encrustation and catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). ·We have shown that not only is the coating non-toxic and non-irritant, but that in vivo its use drama...

Marker of Pseudomonas infection in urine/blood and saliva
Rapid and reliable diagnosis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection Summary We have found and characterised novel biomarkers which accurately report on the Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection status of individuals with compromised lung function. The biomarkers offer the promise of being able to accurately and quickly determine whether infection is...

Compound(s) for the novel treatment of haemorrhoids
Summary It is estimated that between 4 - 25% of the UK population is affected by haemorrhoids, with the condition being more common in the 45-65 age group, in pregnant women and in obese people. They cause itchiness, pain and bleeding and can vary in severity, with more serious cases requiring surgical intervention. Around 9 in 10 people howev...

A negative / counter selection marker for use in clostridia
Genetic manipulation of Clostridium SummaryA research team led by Prof Nigel Minton has developed ways to engineer species of Clostridium to either introduce news genes into their chromosome or to delete gene sequences from their genome. The Clostridia have until now been recalcitrant species for gene manipulation, however, our new technology ...

Antimicrobial Biomaterials - Application to Medical Devices aimed at the minimisation of implant associated infection
Antimicrobial Catheters Summary Dr Roger Bayston of the University of Nottingham has developed an antimicrobial impregnation process which prevents indwelling catheters and related medical devices from becoming contaminated with microbes. Applications Published figures suggest that upwards of 10% of patients with indwelling catheters devel...
