IgY for Inhibition of Pathological Modified Peptides in Celiac Disease


Celiac disease is a worldwide autoimmune disorder characterized by gluten intolerance, and is associated with a number of serious clinical conditions. Even though the prevalence of celiac disease is about 1%, there is still no special therapy; therefore people with celiac disease have to follow a strict gluten-free diet.<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer a novel polyclonal IgY antibody for the treatment of Celiac Disease. The treatment is based on the application of polyclonal anti-CD3 or anti-CDPtTG antibodies, which recognize a specific pathogen peptide. The antibodies are able to bind CD3-peptides and to inhibit human autoantibodies against tTG, without activating the immune system. <br><br> The antibodies are produced in high quantities in the egg yolk of chicken through specific immunization.

<br><br> <b>Benefits:</b><ul> <li>Polyclonal chicken antibodies expressed in yolk (no purification necessary)</li> <li>Inhibition of all tested patient autoantibodies against CDP and tTG (75 pts.)</li> <li>Inhibition of tTG enzymatic activity</li> <li>No interaction with non-pathogenic unmodified gluten </li></ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German patent application filed 09/2011 <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
