Resumen:
Un equipo de investigación de una universidad española, en colaboración con varios hospitales, ha desarrollado un biomaterial para fabricar tejidos artificiales y membranas que ofrece como ventaja la posibilidad de controlar la rigidez y elasticidad. Estos tejidos pueden utilizarse para la restauración o sustitución de tejidos y órganos dañados a causa de una enfermedad o daño físico: piel, vejiga, uretra, córnea, mucosa oral, nervio periférico, cartílago y hueso. El equipo de investigación busca empresas interesadas en licenciar la tecnología.

Tittle:
Artificial biomaterials used as stiffness membranes with controlled elasticity
Summary:
A research group from a Spanish university in collaboration with hospitals have developed a biomaterial for fabricating artificial tissue and membranes with the advantage that its stiffness and elasticity can be controlled. The group is looking for companies interested in licensing this technology.
Description:
Tissue Engineering is an emerging area of biomedicine in which, by using cells, growing factors and biomaterials new artificial tissue is created for restoring, substituting or increasing the functional activities of the organic tissues.The biomaterials used in tissue engineering must accomplish a number of prerequisites such as biocompatibility, no toxicity, chemically and mechanically stability, porous and, in some cases, biodegradability or reabsorbible properties.

Scientists from a Spanish university and the regional health service have developed tissues and artificial membranes based on new biomaterials which can be used for the restoration or substitution of certain tissues and organs damaged as a consequence, for example, from a disease or a physical damage:
- Skin
- Bladder
- Urethra
- Cornea
- Oral mucosa
- Periferal nerve
- Cartilage
- Bone

These artificial tissue and membranes have the advantage that its stiffness and elasticity can be controlled since they have physical and reologic properties (resistance, elasticity, malleability, stitchabiliy, operability) that enable it to substitute the native human tissues with higher effectivity than the biomaterials and artificial tissues currently available.

The research group is looking for companies interested in licensing this technology.
Advantages and Innovations:
· Substitution of damaged tissues with no effective therapeutic alternative, with a decrease of morbi-mortality, due to the reduction of the waiting lists for tissues and organs.

· Production of a biomaterial and an artificial tissue with physical and reologic properties (resistance, elasticity, malleability, stitchabiliy, operability) that enable it to substitute the native human tissues with higher effectivity than the biomaterials and artificial tissues currently available.

· When using autologous cells and/or tissues, the number of infections caused by the donor in the receptor is diminished, avoiding immunosuppressive treatments, since there is not a possibility of immune rejection.
