Imperial technologies


Treatment of Tissue Fibrosis (10805, 11289)

Itaconate is encoded by the gene ACOD1 and plays a critical role in limiting fibrosis by inhibiting the enzyme succinate dehydrogenase. Patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis have decreased expression of ACOD1 and reduced levels of itaconate in the airways. This invention provides compounds, itaconate and itaconate analogues that inhibit succinate dehydrogenase to treat or prevent fibrosis.

Surgical polarimetric endoscopy (SPE) (7005)

Polarisation imaging has the potential to provide enhanced contrast based on variations in the optical properties, such as scattering or birefringence, of the tissue of interest. Examining the signal at different wavebands in the visible spectrum also allows interrogation of different depths and structures. A stereo endoscope has been adapted to allow
snapshot acquisition of orthogonal linear polarisation images to generate difference of linear polarisation images. These images are acquired in three narrow bands using a triple-bandpass filter and pair of colour cameras. The first in vivo results, acquired during a surgical procedure on a porcine subject, are presented that show wavelength dependent variations in vessel visibility and an increase in contrast under polarised detection.

DEP Trapping Using Metalised Nanopipettes (7353)

This invention enables efficient single-molecule nanopore sensing at femtomolar concentrations using dielectrophoretic trapping by combining nanopore sensing and dielectrophoresis.
