Antifeedant compounds from agroindustrial wastes: towards a new green approach for domestic animals pests control
Summary:
An Italian research centre is working on recovering natural active metabolites from agroindustrial wastes or byproducts to be used as active principles. The aim of the research proposal is to recover antifeedant or repellent metabolites from natural sources and verify their ability to control common pets´ pests in order to create more effective, nature-based commercial products without side effects. They are looking for research partners for research and cooperation agreements.
Description:
Nowadays pets are recognized as members of modern families and each new contribution to their wellness is a challenge for our society. Pests diffusion for pets is one of the most important problem mainly for the direct impact of these insects in human life and for the possibility of several animal diseases diffusion through simple bites. A lot of scientists are involved in evaluating new and powerful synthetic compounds in order to better protect both human beings and animals from infestation. These efforts often don´t take care of the social impacts of the use of these substances in terms of costs for families and farmers and environmental impact.
The Italian research group is specialised in natural substances and food chemistry with a long experience in extraction, purification and isolation of natural compounds and phytocomplexes with biological activities.
The Italian research centre has developed a new and more ´green´ approach to the problem, based on the use of natural compounds with antifeedant and repellent activity. Since natural compounds are recovered from wastes and by-products of industries, this will have a positive impact on the environment and it will sensibly reduce production costs.
The objectives are to recover antifeedant or repellent metabolites from natural sources and verify their ability to control common pets´ pests in order to create new and more effective nature-based commercial products, avoiding side effects. The proposed research would start from the Italian group scientific know-how on fine chemicals agroindustrial wastes composition, to develop together with other research groups a prototype of natural based pest repellent product, starting from isolation of actives from wastes, testing the purified product on appropriate in-vivo models and then formulate them in a suitable form for the market.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The Italian research centre is looking for research groups of:
- entomologists with pets´ pests expertise able to carry on antifeedant or repellence tests of natural molecules.
- pharmacologists for evaluating formulation strategies for the use of selected substances in the field of drugs and devices for animal health.
