Under the terms of the collaboration agreement, PolyTherics will explore the biological effects on proteins of Biocompatibles’ proprietary phosphorylcholine (“PC”) drug delivery technology. This new study builds on the companies’ established success in applying their respective technologies to the development of protein-based products.
PolyTherics has also granted Biocompatibles an option to develop and commercialise PC-based products utilising PolyTherics’ proprietary linker technology and intellectual property. Upon the exercise of its option and entry into a product commercialisation agreement, Biocompatibles will pay PolyTherics a royalty on net income resulting from PC-based products that utilise PolyTherics’ technology. No financial details were disclosed.
Dr Keith Powell, Chief Executive Officer of PolyTherics, said: “We are very pleased to extend our collaboration with Biocompatibles, as it has already proved to be highly productive and successful. The future prospect of Biocompatibles exploiting our collaboration IP to commercialise products is an exciting step towards our shared vision of creating novel and effective biopharmaceuticals.”
Dr Peter Stratford, Managing Director of Biocompatibles’ Farnham Product Development Centre, commented: “PolyTherics has been able to provide valuable complementary skills to those of the team here and we look forward to continuing the projects together.”

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
