Disclosed is a 3D matrices for in vitro growth of tumor tissues.
Need to prune the system variables using faster and cheaper in vitro assays in order to design the in vivo experimentation on a smaller number of animals, obtaining the following advantages:
1. Speeding up the arrival to the clinical trial
2. Avoiding the sacrifice of animals with ethical and economic advantages.
Recreating a good model of tumor tissue in vitro allows you to experiment with new formulation anti-neoplastic drugs, to develop the optimal conditions of electroporation as well as the study of the cellular mechanisms underlying the disease.

  • Method for controlling the delivery of insulin

    Currently diabetic patients wear sensors that track and communicate their glucose levels, as well as alarm when they go out of range. The patient, if aware and shrewd, then injects the correct amount of insulin based on the glycemic level[...]

  • Diagnostic kit for inflammatory bowel diseases

    Inflammatory bowel diseases, namely, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, are difficult to diagnose in a timely manner due to generic symptoms and lack of precise and reliable diagnostic methods priming for disease complications and colorectal cancer development. Current methods are[...]

  • UPGRADER – University of Padua GRaft for Arch enDovascular REpaiR

    The endovascular treatment of aortic arch aneurysms allows to exclude an aneurysm, ensuring proximal and distal seeling and preventing any endoleaks, sustained by supra-aortic trunks. This endograft is dedicated to aortic arch aneurysm treatment. Its aims to favor a less[...]
