  • Publication number: 20220089506
    Abstract: A process for fermenting and recycling food waste that is fully enclosed, eliminating noxious odors, and therefore installable in a wide variety of urban settings at scale. Generally the steps of the process include intake, shredding and grinding, inoculation and acceleration, heterolactic fermentation, separation of solids and liquids, drying and distillation, and post-processing of liquid and solid byproducts. The result of the process includes useful goods such as nutrient-rich soil fertilizer, household cleaning agent, energy in the form of current or hydrogen, and treated water. The process is energy efficient and self-contained, resulting in the processing of food waste within 7 days, thus dramatically reducing the time of traditional fermentation processes to produce desired byproducts.

  • Publication number: 20220056490
    Abstract: A method to increase the biomass production and fatty acids in the alga Chlorella vulgaris Beyerinck and obtain a lipid rich biomass type C:16 (palmitic), C18:1n-9 (oleic), C18:2n-6t (linoleidic) and C18:3n-3 (alpha-linolenic), which uses low irradiance from a dichromatic light source.

  • Patent number: 7741298
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compounds, small interfering RNAs and compositions and methods of inhibiting tumorigenesis using agents that inhibit the sonic hedgehog and GLI signaling pathway, including agents that inhibit GLI expression, synthesis and/or function. The present invention also relates to particular biomarkers that can be used in the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer. Methods of treating cancer, including glioblastomas, medulloblastomas, basal cell carcinomas, prostate cancer and small cell and non-small cell lung cancer are also provided using small organic compounds, siRNAs and blocking antibodies that inhibit or block the SHH/GLI pathway.

  • Publication number: 20100047212
    Abstract: Use of the PEDF factor to induce cell regeneration. The present invention refers to the use of the molecule PEDF for the manufacture of medicines to activate processes included in the group of regenerative processes, such as skin regeneration, wound healing, cell therapy for cardiac, neural, or hematopoietic regeneration. It also refers to the manufacture/use of pharmaceutical compounds that contain an efficient quantity of the PEDF factor for stem cell self-renewal.

  • Publication number: 20100015106
    Abstract: The present invention discloses methods of producing neuronal cells from stem cells, particularly from adult brain stem cells. The use of such neuronal cells in the treatment and/or prevention of neurological diseases, conditions and/or injuries is also disclosed. In addition, the present invention provides a novel source of neuronal cells for use as a laboratory tool.
