Dela

Halifax, Nova Scotia, March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Part of Canada's Ocean Supercluster, Nova Scotia is bringing 14 of its most innovative companies to London, UK, for Oceanology International 2018, March 13 to 15. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Nova Scotia is building on its international reputation in ocean observation, bringing world-class designers, manufacturers, experts and innovators to showcase their latest products and services in fields such as underwater acoustics and imaging, marine communication and navigation, robotics, and sensors.

"For Nova Scotia, this is an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the world-class work our companies are doing in ocean technology, and how it's driving our ocean economy" said Laurel Broten, President & CEO of Nova Scotia Business Inc., the province's business development agency. "Our province is home to companies who are leaders in their fields, which involves a multitude of ocean-related industries.  We also have the highest concentration of oceans-related Ph.Ds in Canada, and are leading the way in research and innovation."   

With the longest coastline in the world, Canada has a global advantage in the oceans industry and has recently committed up to $250 million of investment in the sector over the next five years. With an expected impact of thousands of jobs, and billions of dollars in GDP growth, Nova Scotia companies are uniquely positioned to be leaders in everything from ocean technology and observation, to marine-centric defence and security, to transportation and energy. 

At the centre of the ocean technology boom, Nova Scotia is building its industry infrastructure through the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE), the region's collaborative space for ocean technology businesses, start-ups, researchers, and marine-based and service businesses. The space allows both local and global businesses to collaborate and take advantage of the province's 300 ocean-related companies, 60 high-tech innovators, and high concentration of oceans-related researchers.

Iconovo: kundprojekt blir framflyttat tre till sex månader8.11.2018 15:45Pressmeddelande

Fortsatt arbete med ett av Iconovos pågående kundprojekt kommer att flyttas fram tre till sex månader. Projektet avser utveckling av produkt anpassad för kund som ska svara för produktion och marknadslansering. Det aktuella arbetet var planerat att ske under fjärde kvartalet men beräknas ske under nästa år, och detta påverkar Iconovos omsättning under 2018 negativt med cirka 2 miljoner kronor. Orsaken är att kunden har beslutat att genomföra en mindre klinisk studie för att verifiera produkten innan nästa steg tas vilken omfattar investeringar i betydande mångmiljonbelopp i produktionskapacitet, baserat på Iconovos utveckling. Studien görs för kundens egna räkning och är inte villkorad av tillsynsmyndigheter. "Detta påverkar vårt resultat på kort sikt, men det faktum att kunden har beslutat att göra en betydande investering i faktisk produktion betyder att vi med stor säkerhet kan se fram emot licensintäkter under en lång tidsrymd framöver i samband med att produkten lanseras på markna

STOCKHOLM, November 7, 2018. Karolinska Development's portfolio company Modus Therapeutics announces today that the U.S Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the company's Investigational New Drug (IND) application to initiate a Phase I clinical trial with subcutaneous sevuparin for the treatment of sickle cell disease (SCD) FDA has decided to accept Modus Therapeutics' IND application of sevuparin for the treatment of SCD. Sevuparin is an innovative, proprietary modified polysaccharide drug with anti-adhesive, anti-aggregate and anti-inflammatory effects due to its multimodal mechanism of action. It has the potential to restore blood flow and prevent further microvascular obstructions in children and adults with SCD. At present, sevuparin is being evaluated as an intravenous infusion in a Phase II study in SCD patients with ongoing painful crises (also called vaso occlusive crises, VOC).
