It could be exquisitely specific and therefore both more efficacious and safer than most medicines used today," Kris Famm, GSK's head of bioelectronics
, told Forbes last fall.
Its Immunotronics platform is a non-invasive, non-implantable bioelectronic
device for treating/preventing vital organ failure through the reduction of inflammation and cell death and the promotion of regeneration.
seeks to treat chronic illnesses using tiny implants to change electronic signals that pass along nerves in the body.
In the coming decades, advanced pharmaceuticals, bioelectronics
, and genetic interventions will be used not only to heal the sick but to boost human physical and mental performance to unprecedented levels.
Certain diseases, such as lung cancer, can cause patients to give off particular odours; dogs have been known to detect these, and a bioelectronic
nose opens the path to diagnosis through smell.
For a rapid point-of-care detection method, literature was reviewed and preliminary results were collected to develop a novel bioelectronic
chip sensitive to MMP.
Endonovo's technology is part of die emerging field of bioelectronic
medicine, which brings forward a new way of treating human illness and disease using electrical signals transmitted through nerves in the human body.
The topics include bioelectronic
devices controlled by enzyme-based information processing systems, some experiments and models in molecular computing and robotics, in vivo information processing using RNA interference, the logic of decision making in environmental bacteria, and qualitative and quantitative aspects of a model for processes inspired by the functioning of the living cell.
The lab-on-chip technology enables the development of the next generation of portable and implantable bioelectronic
In industries, Halophilic bacteria were used in the production of exopolysaccharides, biofuels, in the treatment of waste water, glycerol production, bioelectronic
materials such as bacteriarhodopsin and enzymes like amylases, esterase, protease and xylanase [14,15].
In 2009, Piramal Healthcare launched ActiPatch, a drug-free bioelectronic
patch for pain management developed by US based BioElectronics
vision; retina models, evaluation metrics, and system design.
