iGEM 2018 competition

iGEM 2018November 2018

The iGEM-Madrid team, sponsored by INMUNOTEK, has been awarded in the international competition held in Boston (iGEM 2018). The project "IoBT-Internet of Bio-Things" is an automatic system where engineering, communications and biosensors of the latest generation based on aptamers are integrated to detect allergen contamination in the air of the cities. The iGEM competition (International Genetically Engineered Machine) aims to encourage students and recent graduates to design bioengineering prototypes that provide imaginative solutions to real needs and therefore with commercial interest.

Mosquito allergy

July 2018

Allergy to mosquitoes and mites is common in certain geographic areas and both have important allergens such as tropomyosin that can lead to cross-reactions between them. A study has been published in Clinical Experimental Allergy which shows that the mosquito Aedes aegypti and the mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus share regions in their tropomyosin that justify the cross-response of antibodies and T cells.

Sublingual mannan-allergoid conjugates

vacunas alergiaFebruary 2018

A new study of allergoids conjugated with mannan has been published in Allergy. In this work, the oral mucosa is experimentally analyzed as a route for the administration of these glycoconjugates. Its lower allergenicity, greater uptake by dendritic cells and immunomodulatory properties makes them good candidates for the development of safer and more effective anti-allergic sublingual vaccines.
