The present invention generally applies to the fixation of hollow organs such as the stomach or the baldder to an outer structure, e.g. to the abdominal wall. The main field of application is in particular the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) sonde.
PEG-sondes are applied by various techniques, especially by the so-called pull-through and the direct punctation (or push) technique. The latter is predominantly applied, when a stenosis of the upper gastrointestinal tract by a tumor prohibits oral access due to the consumption of space, but also due to the fact that the pull-through method is discussed in the literature to cause inoculation metastasis.
On behalf of the RWTH Aachen University, PROvendis is seeking for interested companies for cooperation and/or licensing.

Shar-Pei Autoinflammatory Disease (SPAID) is a complex inflammatory disease. Typical signs are recurrent bouts of fever, inflammations of the ear, arthritis and a reddened skin. The dogs can also develop amyloidosis. Scientists at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover developed a genetic test for SPAID predisposition.
Scientists of the MEET at Wilhelms University of Muenster developed a set of alkylsilyl complexes (MOSi) as elecrolyte additive, which enhance the performance of lithium ion batteries. Previous studies have shown that electrolyte additives based on metals and semimetals (LiBOB, Mg(TFSI)2, Al(TFSI)3) as well as additives containing trimethylsiloxyl (TMS) groups as ligands can have positive impact on the cycling performance of lithium ion battery cells due to solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) and/or cathode electrolyte interphase (CEI) film forming properties and/or scavenging properties towards acidic impurities. The results of LIB full-cells show a twofold cycle life compared to the standard electrolyte. The addition of the M(TMS)x based additives lowers the charge transfer impedance during prolonged cycling. MOSi leads to lithium ion batteries with enhanced anti fading performance.
A German patent application is pending. International applications are possible.
On behalf of the University Muenster, PROvendis offers access to rights for commercial use as well as the opportunity for further co-development.
Oncolytic virotherapy for cancer has emerged as a novel and promising therapeutic approach to replace standard cancer therapies, which often provide limited efficacy at the cost of unpleasant or severe side effects. Here, a novel VSV/NDV hybrid virus was engineered that combines the advantages of both vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) and Newcastle disease virus (NDV) vectors, while the safety concerns of both are eliminated.
Skyrmions are stable topological vortices in the magnetization. They can be created on surfaces of magnetic materials where they move through the materiallike a kind of hose. Their motion can be controlled with magnetic and/or electric fields or currents. Skyrmions have a diameter in the nm range and can be easily generated and also detected. SkyrMem is a novel storage arrangement that uses these properties of the skyrmions. It consists of a strip of magnetic material, about twice as wide as the diameter of a skyrmion. A potential barrier is applied in the center of the strip so that the skyrmions can only be placed above or below the line. This can be used to represent logical "1" and "0". By applying a voltage, the scyrmions can be moved along the strip, permitting serial reading of the information.
With SkyrMem, a completely new type of digital memory can be realized. Since scyrmions are very small and nevertheless stable, storage densities above the values customary today for hard disks are possible. High readout rates can also be achieved. SkyrMem provides a technical basis for the storage media of the future.
A German patent application was filed, international applications are still possible.
In the name of the University of Cologne, we offer interested companies the opportunity to license and further develop the technology.
Powered, multi-funcitonal limb movement auxiliary method and device, particularly prosthesis and movement-assisting orthosis, with combined estimation regimes of multiple degrees of freedom (DOF) showing a "natural" movement.
Diazadiborines provide a new class of substances for molecular electronics. In addition to the application in the area of molecular electronics itself, i.e. as molecular electronic building blocks, diazadiborines may also ? analogously to other polycyclic aromatic compounds ? be used in the area of printable electronics, esp. as functional compounds in printing-pastes
Scientists at RWTH Aachen University developed a novel screening method substantially improving the finding of favored enzyme variants using the directed evolution technique. The method, an entirely cell-free system, uses innovative compartments, thus enabling the efficient detection of human and toxic proteins.
