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.

  • Multifunctional nanoparticles based on metal nanalloys for diagnostic and therapeutic uses

    The invention relates to nanoparticles (NPs) comprising a metal alloy and a biocompatible organic stabilizer, useful in the diagnosis and therapy of pathological conditions such as cancer. The alloy NPs possess the characteristics required to be employed as contrast agents[...]

  • Biomimetic ankle-foot prosthesis with extensive sensing capabilities

    The object of the patent is an active bioinspired ankle and foot prosthesis aimed to improve the quality of life of its user by significantly reducing the gap between biological and artificial limb. In fact, the design of this prosthetic[...]

  • Glioblastoma multiforme: a new prognostic index of survival

    Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common brain cancer among adults and patients and has an overall survival (OS) of 15 months. Nowadays brain tumours are not taken in evaluation in relation to the brain area in which they are located.[...]
