NoCanTher at ImagineNano
The Bilbao Exhibition Centre hosted the ImagineNano conference, which took place in Bilbao, Spain between the 1st and 3rd of February 2018.
Oihane Ibarrola, Scientific Responsible for Process Technologies and Ángel Del Pozo, Responsible of registrations and Patents, (BioPraxis), presented the talk about the Nocanther project under the title “Nanomedicine Upscaling for Early Clinical Phases of Cancer Therapy” where the audience of academics and experts of the industry well received the presentation.
The Nocanther project is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission within Horizon 2020. This project involves different companies such as Chemicell, Immupharma PLC, Resonant Circuits and different public agents such as IMDEA Nanociencia, CNIO, VHIR, VHIO, Trinity College and the University of Paris Diderot. The objective of this project is to develop an improved therapy based on iron oxide nanoparticles for the treatment of adenocarcinoma of the ductal pancreas.
The function of BioPraxis in this project is the scaling of the manufacturing process and the design of the final formulation.
Moreover the presentation was focused on the development of the Hyperthermia treatment and it´s device which is being designed by Resonant Circuits Limited with very encouraging and interesting results.
