Elicityl sponsorizes and joins this event, it will be a pleasure to meet you there .

Elicityl against Cystic Fibrosis

Elicityl is proud to announce that the Anti-Pyo project, accredited by the world competitiveness cluster LyonBioPôle and submitted to the 14th FUI call for projects has been selected.

The objective of the project is to develop a drug candidate to treat lung infections related to Pseudomonas aeruginosa in patients in intensive care and in patients with cystic fibrosis. This bacteria is the leading cause of infection in patients in intensive care and is responsible for 80% of mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis. The molecules developed in ANTI-PYO will have to prevent bacterial attachment to the lung surface, to facilitate their elimination by the immune system and to make them much more sensitive to standard antibiotic treatments against which the bacteria has become resistant.

Partnership opportunities: Carbohydrates as antiviral feed additive in poultry

poulet cage

What is the context ?

Poultry is often suffering from viral infection (like Avian Flu, Newcastle virus, Coronarovirus) during its breeding; generating diarrhea, loss of weight, and even death. Vaccines are not covering the broad spectrum and human drugs are prohibited. One solution could be natural Carbohydrates.

What is Carbohydrates ?

Our carbohydrates are coming from a green algae, Caulerpa Racemosa, produced by aquaculture in Asia. They are comestible and sustainable and can be administrated to the poultry without risk for human consumption. It is a big advantage.

What are Carbohydrates doing ?

They prevent the virus replication through inhibition of viral adhesion and entry on target epithelials cells. Studies have been done with success on chicken and mices infected by an Avian Flu virus.

Elicityl is looking for partnership to develop this veterinary innovative product. It is already patented , elements of a proof of concept exist and the company needs partners to finalize the development and commercialize the product.

Maltodecaose shortage

Due to unexpected technical issue, our item maltodecaose GLU320 is currently in shortage for months (estimation) - As a consequence, our item maltokit GLU322 has been adapted and will no longer contain GLU322 (september 12, 2016). Our team does the best to solve the issue, and is sorry about the situation.
