Resorbable composite fixation
Resorbable Composite Fixation Summary We have developed a novel production process which enables the preparation of resorbable screws and bolts. These can be used in conjunction with fully degradable composite implants in the treatment of damaged or defective bone tissue. Thus resulting in a fully resorbable, degradable system. Key Benefits The...

BioBone - Biodegradable Bone Composite
BioBone—Bio-degradable Bone Composite Summary Fully degradable composite implant materials are highly desirable in the treatment of damaged or defective bone tissue. Existing non-degradable implants experience many limitations with, for example, miss-match of mechanical properties (i.e. stress shielding), wear debris and encapsulation. Often ...

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...

Raman spectral imaging for automated Mohs Micrographic surgery of Basal Cell Carcinoma
Automated Detection and Imaging of Tumours During Surgery Summary Automated imaging and objective diagnosis of excised tissue specimens during cancer surgery would lead to increasing the efficacy of the most advanced surgical procedure. We have developed a model which enables Raman Micro-Spectroscopy (RMS) to be used as an alternative to histo...
