Viticell®, a new treatment for Vitiligo patients using cutaneous repigmentation through cell grafts

Nicolas Aguero - 27-févr.-2015 12:11:02
Viticell®, a new treatment for Vitiligo patients using cutaneous repigmentation through cell grafts Viticell®, the new medical device on the market, offers an innovative treatment for patients with non-progressive vitiligo or post-traumatic hypochromic scars by using autologous grafts in cellular suspension, either in the doctor’s surgery or hospital. Having achieved excellent results in the domestic market of France, the UK Business Development Manager from Laboratoires Genévrier will be visiting the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition 2015 on 7-8th March 2015 in London, to develop partnerships in the UK with specialist dermatology clinics, KOLs, and practitioners treating patients with vitiligo. For meeting requests, contact Katie Docwra at BUSINESS FRANCE on 0207 024 3619, katie.docwra@businessfrance.fr Vitiligo affects 0.5% to 2% of the population worldwide, and presents in two clinical forms: segmental and non-segmental.  Due to its visible nature, this disease often triggers social withdrawal and can be very troubling for patients. Six in 10 patients fear the condition will worsen, and about one third of them report feelings of anger and shame, a tendency toward depression, as well as reporting an impact on their social life. Medical treatments for vitiligo include natural heliotherapy and, especially, high activity corticosteroids (class IV), immunomodulators, and associated phototherapy. Surgical treatment is based on three autologous graft techniques. The oldest method is the full-thickness skin graft. The second, the split-thickness skin graft, consists in the direct application of a dermal-epidermal graft, harvested using a dermatome, on to the depigmented area which has previously undergone dermabrasion treatment. For the autologous epidermal graft in cellular suspension, the harvesting methods are the same as for the previous technique, but include an additional step: the use of an enzyme solution to dissociate the epidermis from the dermis so as to collect keratinocyte and melanocyte cells from the epidermal tissue. This step takes the solution from a solid to liquid phase, through the cellular suspension of the harvested epidermal cells. When applied to the area previously treated by dermabrasion, cellular suspension makes it possible to treat a surface area 5 to 10 times as large as the biopsy. According to European recommendations, the autologous graft in cellular suspension is indicated in cases of segmental or localised vitiligo after failure of classic medical treatments, such as phototherapy, and in non-segmental vitiligo that has been stable for at least 6 months in patients with no previous history of Koebner phenomenon. In the case of segmental vitiligo, it is possible to obtain significant repigmentation (95%) that lasts for 5 years in 84% of patients . The cell graft may also be a therapeutic option for the treatment of hypochromic or achromic scars following burns or laser treatments, for example. Viticell® obtained CE marking in October 2013 and is therefore authorised for sale within the UK. The benefit of using the melanocyte graft using Viticell® is the accelerated repigmentation process achieved by using the patient’s own cells to repigment his or her depigmented lesions. Thanks to a single-use, standardised procedure that is GMP compliant, it is now possible to treat a depigmented area of up to 100cm2 in 1 to 2 hours either in the doctor’s surgery or clinic, or at the hospital. One of the principal innovations of Viticell® lies in suspending isolated cells in hyaluronic acid (HA) during the dermal-epidermal separation. The addition of HA allows a more viscous cell suspension, giving better adhesion and diffusion when it is applied to the area ready for the skin graft. Viticell® expands the therapeutic arsenal either at the hospital or the doctor’s surgery, making it possible to treat patients suffering from vitiligo where previous conventional treatments no longer allow for repigmentation. Viticell in 5 steps: 1 - Harvest thin skin sample (4-20cm2) 2 - Skin digestion and collection of epidermal cells with Viticell® 3 - Resuspension in Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 4 - Cell graft onto the area previously treated with dermabrasion (<100cm2) 5 - Option to use post-graft phototherapy to augment repigmentation About Laboratories Genévrier Since their creation in 1987, Laboratories Genévrier has been a leading expert in Rheumatology, Dermatology and Gynaecology.

ARELIS unveils hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station at MWC 2015

Nicolas Aguero - 05-févr.-2015 15:34:08
ARELIS unveils hybrid telecoms /TV transmission station at MWC  2015   AR ELIS Group, together with its subsidiary, Thomson Broadcast, a global leader in transmission systems, will be present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015, in Barcelona (Spain). At the trade show, the company will unveil its new, green, hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station within the ZENITTHYS project, as well as a completely autonomous base station it has developed. ARELIS will welcome industry visitors and journalists at Mobile World Congress (MWC) from 2 to 5 March of this year, in Barcelona (Spain). ARELIS will have a stand on the French Pavilion, in Hall 5 (Booth B 61 and Booth B 41). ARELIS will present its Zero Energy Network In Telecom and Television Hybrid System (ZENITTHYS) project, which features a hybrid transmission solution intended to reduce the environmental impact of telecoms networks’ massive deployments, and the company’s latest solar pilot, which features complete autonomy.   As part of the new ZENITTHYS project — a green, hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station — ARELIS and Thomson Broadcast, its subsidiary, have a long-standing commitment to telecoms and broadcast convergence, as a way to offer hybrid solutions. This convergence has accelerated with the gradual sale of frequencies in the 800MHz band and, soon, in the 700MHz band. The telecoms industry continues to play a key role in Europe, in spite of falling revenues, increased regulation, and a difficult economic climate. Telecoms operators are expected to invest close to €30 billion annually in next-generation mobile networks between now and 2020. However, the rise in investment has been hampered by various factors. On the one hand, incomes have tended to drop, while the explosion in data traffic over telecoms networks would require massive investment, and, on the other hand, to guarantee good signal quality and wide coverage, macro base-station antennas are being installed in the centre of cities. With ZENITTHYS, ARELIS makes it possible to minimize the environmental and societal impact of these two trends. The impact that the proximity of telecoms antennas has on residents may be reduced by splitting the transmission function away from the reception function. Indeed, with ZENITTHYS, the telecoms-reception side is separated from the transmission function and remains close to the houses, but with minimized visual and electromagnetic impact for the inhabitants, while the transmission side, for its part, is achieved via remote sites. One of the aims of ZENITTHYS is to demonstrate, in specific situations, the capacity to reduce electromagnetic exposure to 0.6V/m with the same Quality of Service. The environmental impact is also reduced by using a mix of renewable energies to power the hybrid telecoms/broadcast station. ARELIS’ strategy for 2015 and beyond is focused on medium-power energy systems specifically adapted to telecoms deployment, based on the company’s in-house expertise in energy conversion, high-efficiency amplifiers, and energy-management systems. Along with renewable energies, ARELIS is focusing on energy storage and power cells in order to offer a range of off-grid systems and solutions. At WMC 2015, ARELIS will present its new solar autonomous-system pilot, which is a solar off-grid solution. This renewable-energy functional pilot is the first medium-power off-grid solution integrating transmission capacity. For each piece of equipment integrated into the station, heat dissipation and power consumption have been optimised, and the carbon footprint has been minimised accordingly. To ensure system reliability, the built-in Battery Management System (BMS) can be remotely monitored: it not only controls charge and discharge, but also many energy sources, thanks to an automatic-management functionality. From an off-grid-system point of view, logistics for the replenishment are then strongly reduced. In turn, this provides operators with a drop-and-forget solution instead of costly replenishment operations in inaccessible or dangerous sites, where the price of a barrel of oil (including delivery costs) may escalate quickly. With telecoms operators’ energy-related operational expenditure representing up to 30% of global expenditure, ARELIS’ autonomous station is an ideal, environmentally friendly solution, which can meet specific customer requirements. “We aim at proposing an energy-storage and autonomy solution with kW prices which may compete successfully with polluting, pure genset.   Our R&D department is focusing on increasing the energy efficiency of [base] stations, while reducing their operational costs. These systems, adaptable to both networks, will ease the telecoms/broadcast convergence and allow their transmission site sharing. Our system does control the entire system and offers telecoms operators sustainable solutions to power their off-grid stations with renewable-energy sources,” says Pascal Veillat, Chairman of ARELIS Group. ARELIS and the ZENITTHYS Project Leader will welcome visitors and journalists on the French Pavilion (Hall 5, Booth B 61 and B 41) at World Mobile Congress (MWC), in Barcelona (Spain), between 2 and 5 March of this year.

EBlink to showcase pioneer wireless-fronthaul solution at MWC 2015

Philip Jolly - 14-janv.-2015 13:26:34
EBlink, a pioneer in wireless-fronthaul technology, will be present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March 2015, in Barcelona (Spain). The company’s FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough. EBlink provides solutions that are complementary to fibre-based fronthaul and essential to Cloud RAN and 5G architectures.   EBlink takes wireless fronthaul technology to the next level with unmatched field-proven performance. Thanks to EBlink’s solutions, operators are no longer forced to lay costly fibre runs or limit their new sites to locations served by fibre. Importantly, EBlink’s patented technology ensures that radio-access performance remains intact when using a wireless-fronthaul link. “Our FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough, with unequalled performance: up to 7.5Gbps CPRI on a wireless link within a 70MHz bandwidth,” explains Alain Rolland, EBlink’s founder and CEO.  “Tested and validated by operators worldwide, the FrontLink™ solution offers new possibilities to mobile carriers in their network deployment.” Christian Bittar, EBlink’s co-founder and COO, says: “We expect to double this technical performance in 2015, and again the following year. Everything indicates that mobile-network architectures will rely on fronthaul links to enable the use of those technologies essential for high-speed service (Comp, Massive MIMO, etc.). Our wireless fronthaul technology was developed with this in mind.” Analysts and major international operators now speak of wireless fronthaul as a technology that has become essential. International mobile-telecommunications operators are moving increasingly towards centralized architectures, which are more economical and provide better performance than traditional cellular network architectures. Already deployed in Asia, C-RAN/V-RAN/small cells networks are now gaining ground in North America and other parts of the world as well. These new architectures have spurred the development of fronthaul-type transmission infrastructures, which — as with backhaul systems — call for both fibre and wireless solutions. Complementary to fibre-based fronthaul, EBlink’s wireless fronthaul solutions also drive a significant reduction in deployment costs: up to 40% in most scenarios. Specifically, EBlink’s patented technology eliminates the last few hundred metres of fibre that are so costly for mobile-telecoms operators, being long and difficult to deploy. As A rising start-up in the mobile telecoms industry, EBlink continues to build partnerships with leading industrials in order to foster technological synergies and accelerate the distribution of its solutions worldwide. EBlink will be on Booth 5B73, in Hall 5, at MWC in Barcelona (in Spain), between 2 and 5 March of this year. About EBlink Founded in France in 2005, EBlink is revolutionizing the mobile-network market with a new industry standard: wireless fronthaul. Based on the founders’ vision of the evolution of mobile-telecoms networks, EBlink’s technology provides operators with an immediate solution to the growing demand for mobile multimedia applications. EBlink’s leaders have 20 years of experience in the deployment, operation and optimization of mobile networks. EBlink will be on Booth 5B73, in Hall 5, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), in Barcelona (Spain), between 2 and 5 March 2015.

SERSA launches new versatile graphics cards for industry

Philip Jolly - 06-janv.-2015 13:08:56
SERSA, a French-based company specializing in the design and development of global solutions for the industrial-electronics sector, has launched IHM Crystal-IN, a graphics card designed to enhance screen-graphic interfaces. Seeking to simplify the ergonomics of their products, industrialists are increasingly turning to colour graphic displays, with or without a touchscreen interface, which require substantial investment in software-development skills and hardware capabilities. With this in mind, and in order to meet its customers’ demands, SERSA has developed the IHM Crystal-IN graphics card. The IHM Crystal-IN graphics card is built around a powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and avoids the need to use an operating system such as Windows, Android or Linux, which, in turn, ensures increased reliability in harsh environments such as those found in industry. This autonomous solution offers a range of benefits to the user, including reduced development time and easy implementation; scalability towards a variety of graphic displays (from 3” to 10”, colour screen, glass touchscreen, etc.); an integrated Flash Player; and, finally, reduced costs. The integrated Flash Player ensures that the content is produced to the highest quality standards possible, no matter what the final resolution may be. With Flash, developers can create graphics interfaces with high-level office tools directly on any platform equipped with a Flash reader, without having to write a graphics code. Thanks to SERSA’s IHM Crystal-IN graphics card, users are finally able to make the most of the many advantages of this technology and overcome the limitations of embedded software. The solutions developed by SERSA have many applications. Indeed, SERSA’s know-how is already widely acknowledged across industries such as bakeries, pastry making, and the hospitality sector.

The specialist company’s innovative and versatile solution enables users to host, manage and broadcast lectures live or in streaming mode. With 200,000 users, Libcast’s technology has already been chosen by many universities and schools, including leading colleges in France and Norway. Libcast offers its customers the ability to easily publish any type of audio/video files, pictures and documents to the web, smartphones, tablets, computers, and connected TVs. Libcast’s Online Video Platform has a range of features that ensure optimal indexation, customization, monetization and analytics to engage the client entity’s audiences and assist it in deploying a successful digital strategy. Users may expand the platform’s capabilities in order to improve their experience with extensions such as Web TV, pedagogical blogs and plug-ins for education (Moodle, Blackboard, Fronter, Dokeos, etc.). Business schools, such as HEC Paris, Grenoble Management School and Bordeaux III University, have been choosing the Libcast platform, attracted more particularly by the platform’s scalability. Besides, the Libcast platform offers personalized support within a close partnership with the client entity, so as to better help it carry out a range of projects. These projects include Web TV or limited-access video portals dedicated to the broadcasting of lectures (such as Massive Online Open Courses, or MOOCs). In the past year, the Libcast platform has attracted a wide international audience. In Norway, Telemark University College (TUC) is among its users. TUC is the fourth largest university college in Norway with 6,500 students. It has four campuses and is based around the Porsgrunn site, in Southern Norway. TUC uses a broad range of video-based content and was already equipped with video-recording/video-screening equipment. The Norwegian university was looking for an easy-to-use online solution that would be ergonomic and intuitive, enabling users to host, encode and manage video content without difficulty. The chosen solution should also make it possible to subsequently broadcast the video content on internal lecture-related blogs and across TUC’s iTunesU platforms afterwards. TUC opted for Libcast’s solution after trying it out during the BETT trade show in London (UK) in January 2013, and after a European competitive bidding process that resulted in the specialist French company winning the contract. TUC chose Libcast for a range of reasons. First of all, Libcast offers a turnkey solution that includes software, support and infrastructure. Also, the Libcast interface is integrated within an SI interface, and the French company’s software application is 100% online. Furthermore, Libcast has developed an encoding engine that can process all video/audio content, as well as images and documents. Besides, Libcast’s solution features an integrated RichMedia studio as part of the application, enabling the association of video contents with presentations and documents. And the addition of subtitles, chapter headings, etc. can be done easily, in a very intuitive way, which is another advantage. Libcast has made sure that video formats are suitable and compatible for broadcasting on every screen. And the Libcast solution comes complete with accurate, graphic measurement tools. Finally, Libcast offers various other benefits, such as the ability to widen the scope of content broadcasting through new portals over time, or unlimited broadcasting traffic (in order to ensure effective control of the budget dedicated to the project). Thanks to all these versatile and innovative features, the Libcast platform was chosen by Telemark University College of Norway, as it has been by other players in industry and academia in various countries. Libcast’s freemium business model adds to the strength of its offering, since 3Gb worth of storage is made available to users, free of charge, to host their videos as soon as they have signed up for an account (and without any time constraint attached to the facility). Libcast has been attending the BETT trade show, in London, for three years, since the trade fair represents a powerful forum for international development and technological innovation, allowing exhibitors to meet the major players in education and new technologies. The company will be at BETT 2015, in January of this year (Stand C.98).
