Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (Nasdaq: AVXL) is a publicly traded biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of differentiated therapeutics for the treatment of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, other central nervous system (CNS) diseases, pain and various types of cancer. Anavex’s lead drug candidate, ANAVEXTM 2-73, recently completed successfully a Phase 2a clinical trial for Alzheimer’s disease. ANAVEXTM 2-73 is an orally available drug candidate that restores cellular homeostasis by targeting sigma-1 and muscarinic receptors. Preclinical studies demonstrated its potential to halt and/or reverse the course of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also exhibited anticonvulsant, anti-amnesic, neuroprotective and anti-depressant properties in animal models, indicating its potential to treat additional CNS disorders, including epilepsy. The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research has awarded Anavex a research grant to develop ANAVEXTM 2-73 for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease to fully fund a preclinical study, which could justify moving ANAVEXTM 2-73 into a Parkinson’s disease clinical trial. ANAVEXTM 3-71, also targeting sigma-1 and M1 muscarinic receptors, is a promising preclinical drug candidate demonstrating disease modifications against the major Alzheimer’s hallmarks in transgenic (3xTg-AD) mice, including cognitive deficits, amyloid and tau pathologies, and also with beneficial effects on neuroinflammation and mitochondrial dysfunctions.

BioFuse Medical Technologies’, Inc. (BFMT) BioFusionTM Bipolar RF generator, has been cleared for marketing in both the U.S. and EU. The BioFuse proprietary energy algorithm is now protected by U.S., EU, and JP patents. BioFusionTM joins tissue by means of a three-phase minimum resistance RF energy formula. Sutures and staples can create wound healing, after 6 months, that reaches 80% of the tensile strength of normal healthy tissue. In a study completed in January of 2017, BioFusionTM created wound healing that was stronger than native healthy tissue. This was noted after only 21 days.1 This 510K cleared & CE marked platform technology targets surgical procedures that utilize sutures or staples, a market represented by nearly all surgical procedures worldwide. The BioFusionTM RF algorithm has been successfully implemented in over 1000 test cases.
BioFusionTM represents a natural, timely, solution. Additional exciting opportunities exist in the worldwide bipolar RF market, a market void of BioFusionTM technology. This global advanced energy market is projected to reach 1.57 billion dollars by 2019. The worldwide wound closure market (staples, sutures, adhesives) is projected to reach 16.6 billion dollars by 2020.

In close cooperation with the Fraunhofer IISB in Erlangen, Blacbird Technologies developed a novel way of monitoring electrical networks. Beyond measuring simple state variables (currents or voltages), like most of our competitors, we analyze the dynamic behavior (complex impedance) of the connected circuit. This enables us to detect changes due to aging effects, status, defects or modifications and create a unique fingerprint of the system in real-time. State-of-the-art measurement techniques, that identify the complex grid impedance inject a mono-frequent test signal and measure the response amplitude and phase. This technique is very accurate, but expensive, takes very long and must be adapted to every specific use case. We developed a way of determining this property, that is very cost-efficient, faster and can be added to nearly every electrical system in a modular way.

A Star-Trek like medical device that uses cold plasma to kill multiresistant bacteria and treat even chronic wounds.
VIDEO | https://youtu.be/0LFrG5kk6Y8
PROBLEM | We offer the solution to two main problems of modern medicine: chronic ulceratrions (like bedsores and diabetic feet) and the long sought after solution to treating multiresistant bacteria in wounds.
TECHNOLOGY | COLDPLASMATECH developed a new wound dressing that creates cold plasma directly on the damaged skin. For the past two decades, scientists from the German Leibniz Association have been conducting research on a plasma state that, unlike the sun, is not scorching-hot, but cool. Cold plasma is bioactive and shows significant results on treated patients – but the scientific devices (in a clinical context) weren’t applicable.
PRODUCT | With its newly developed device COLDPLASMATECH finally offers a product that’s safe, pain-free, fast, can cover a large area and is mass-market compatible. The active wound-dressing ‘plasma patch’ (patent pending, PCT worldwide) is easy to use, delegable to medical professionals, mobile and designed based on customer and clinical needs. The device is connected to the Plasma Cube, a power-generator that automatically generates the optimal plasma-output for decontamination and stimulation on cellular level.
After approval in 2018, we will launch the world’s first two-dimensional application and will enter markets with its disruptive disposable device. Scale up of production was already successful.

Noviocell BV is a highly innovative biotechnology company, headquartered in Oss, the Netherlands. It is convinced that it has the only ever synthetic solution for 3D cell culturing, opening up the avenues for stem cells and precision medicine.
Curing diseases with own grown organs is not far away anymore. Mini-organs also called organoids are considered to be the solution to accelerate the development of new therapies. However, the culturing of organoids for medical purposes faces a huge issue. The organoids are grown on ancient technology that is extracted from mice tumor cells. This does not only lead to batch-to-batch variability with inconsistent test results, but also in the risk of pathogen transmission. Using mice tumor base also means that therapeutic applications are impossible. The only way forward is to use a non-animal derived, synthetic matrix. The researchers are therefore desperately looking for a synthetic replacement. Noviocell has the only synthetic material that can compete with animal based material, because it behaves the same. Noviogel is synthetic, leads to reproducible results and, it can be used for regenerative medical purposes. The gel is thermo reversible and as a consequence it is much easier to work with than with other materials.

OrthoMedex LLC is a US-based start-up orthopedic implant company seeking to leverage the osteostimulative and antimicrobial attributes of bioactive glass to address the unmet implant fixation and infection control needs of the orthopedic surgeon. The company’s technology and IP seeks to reduce patient morbidity, mortality and the cost of healthcare associated with orthopedic revision surgery, due to aseptic implant loosening, osteoporosis, and/or periprosthetic implant infection.
CMS no longer reimburses hospitals for implant revisions associated with hip and knee joint reconstruction, and fracture fixation, occurring within 90 days of hospital discharge. The 2016 American Joint Replacement Registry found that nearly 7% of all total hip and 3% of all total knee arthroplasties were ‘revised’ within this time period.
Earlier this year, OrthoMedex LLC was awarded a $1.4MM ‘Internationalization’ grant from Medical Valley EMN E.V.; funded by Germany’s Ministry of Education and Research [BMBF]. The company recently opened an OrthoMedex GmbH office to support its project collaboration and business interests in Germany, and the EU.

Portabiles HealthCare Technologies
In Portabiles HealthCare Technologies GmbH (PHCT), a team of entrepreneurs and scientists develop a novel wearable sensor system for the analysis of gait – “Mobile GaitLab”. The worsening of human gait is a core symptom in many chronic diseases, therefore it is an important therapeutic target in medication or physiotherapy. Measuring gait in patients’ activities of daily living delivers valuable information about the progress of a disease, the effectiveness of a therapy (or a new drug), and the patient’s individual risk of falling. Our goal is to provide therapists with clinical validated gait data so they are able to make therapy decisions on a day-to-day basis by monitoring their patients’ physical condition, supported by a digitalized treatment pathway. Mobile GaitLab sensors are integrated into the patient’s shoes, the sensor data are transferred into a secure telehealth platform where Gait parameters and disease specific gait characteristics are calculated using sophisticated algorithms. Our customers will be Healthcare Insurances (for tele-healthcare) and Pharmaceutical Companies (for prove of new drugs efficacy).
