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.

Rail Freight Meetings in spotlight at SITL Paris 2015

Nicolas Aguero - 05-févr.-2015 16:30:04
Rail Freight Meetings in spotlight at SITL Paris 2015     Rail Freight Meetings in spotlight at SITL Paris 2015 With workshops, a showroom and work areas across a space of 300 m², the Rail Freight Meetings will constitute one of the key innovations at SITL Paris 2015, which will be taking place from 31 March to 2 April in Paris (France). Innovative players such as Herta France, SNCF Freight and Agenia are looking forward to this key event. Under the aegis of France’s Secretary of State for Transport, the Rail Freight Meetings reflect the measures entrusted to the Association of Freight Transport Users (or AUTF, in French) following the ministerial conferences held with respect to the revival of rail freight in France. The aim is to have a business dialogue at the service of growth in the rail industry, and, more particularly, to match supply and demand in the field of rail freight and combined road-rail transport by means of business meetings between shippers and all those involved in the rail-industry value chain. T he three case studies below illustrate the scope and interest of the Rail Freight Meetings due to take place at SITL Paris 2015, from 31 March to 2 April of this year. CASE STUDY 1: HERTA FRANCE               "We would like to use rail freight and combined road-rail but we do not find that the shoe fits,” says Marc Bernard, Transport & Supply Chain Projects Manager for Herta France — a comment which reflects the difficulty faced by shippers when evaluating current rail and multimodal offerings. "Traffic volumes and the will to deploy these alternative solutions exist,” points out Christian Rose, Executive Officer at AUTF, who bases his comment on an audit carried out among purchasing managers. "Though they lack visibility in terms of capacity and rail operations, compared to the very dynamic road possibilities.” A subsidiary of the Nestlé Group, Herta France operates factories in Arras (northern France) and Strasbourg (eastern France) that process 95,000 tonnes of food products per year. Using controlled-temperature storage, the goods are sent daily to two logistical hubs — one located in Ile-de-France (i.e. the Paris Region) and the other in the Lyons region — before being sent on to supply the retail trade. "This just-in-time logistics process, today, is done 100% by road. On the Arras-Lyons link, for example, we use up to 12 refrigerated trucks per day,” laments Marc Bernard.   From the agricultural producer through to the consumer, Herta France’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets mean, in practice, that the company must actively seek sustainable organisations that reduce its carbon footprint in relation to all the links in its supply chain. "Implemented in the choice of raw materials, production methodology, packaging, etc., our social-responsibility plan also covers our out-bound logistics. This is the reason why we are looking for rail and multimodal solutions linked to our retail clients,” explains Marc Bernard. With this aim in mind, Herta France will be at the Rail Freight Meetings: "This event is a time-benefit accelerator, which will help us to achieve our ambition to lower our distribution carbon footprint. Herta wants to use rail and combined freight,” says Marc Bernard, who has high expectations of the trade show. At the Rail Freight Meetings, the manufacturer hopes to better understand how the rail sector operates. "We want to develop links with the professionals who can best respond to our logistics needs right through to the final customer, and also discover all the available multimodal innovations,” explains Marc Bernard. CASE STUDY 2: SNCF FREIGHT Rail services have evolved over the last decade and have, in many ways, been revitalised. "Deregulation has put the clients and their requirements at the heart of the issue. Competition and the effects of the [financial] crisis have led to a rethink of the service and internal organisation of SNCF Freight,” says Olivier Juban, Director of SNCF, the State-owned French railway operator. It is in this context that the Rail Freight Meetings are an excellent occasion for SNCF Freight to meet procurement managers in order to explain current industry developments and, also, how the railway sector can respond to logistics challenges. Shared services, Multi-Lots/Multi-Clients options, long trains, combined rail-road initiatives, and ‘rail highways’ are various aspects of the range of solutions developed by SNCF Freight, which demonstrate the company’s efficiency and relevance. "Driven by teams managing production and sales, the solutions are configured to respond to the complex logistics challenge from purchasers within a framework of sustainable collaboration,” explains Olivier Juban. CASE STUDY 3: AGENIA Agenia is a subsidiary of NGE, a multi-expertise group in the field of public works with a turnover of €1.5 billion. Agenia works with shippers, local communities and logistics hubs in order to develop sound rail-transport links and multimodal solutions.    “The expertise of Agenia is wide-ranging: from the construction and management of rail infrastructure through to developing rail-freight offerings, and including the management of hubs and network maintenance,” says Michel Colombié, CEO. On this basis, Agenia is the partner of Moulins Communauté in order to develop jointly the LOGIPARC 03 rail centre, in Moulins (central France). The logistics of a rail network go well beyond mere point-to-point traffic management. Indeed, Agenia’s added-value proposition comes from its ability to interlink connected services: handling, door-to-door transport, rail-road combined transport, connections to inland networks as well as ports, and so on. “These extended services that include the management of infrastructures are essential in order to guarantee a premium service quality which responds to the challenges of the modern supply chain. At LOGIPARC 03, Agenia has developed this offering in partnership with Transports Terrancle and Eurorail,” explains Michel Colombié. These are concrete examples of the potential offered by the pooling of rail-sector skills and multimodal complementarities — common themes of the Rail Freight Meetings at SITL Paris 2015, to be held in Paris (France) between 31 March and 2 April of this year. About Reed Expositions Reed Expositions is the French subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, the worlds leading event organiser. Reed Expositions organizes over 50 trade shows per year in France across a range of sectors including transport and logistics.   Reed Expositions will be organising Transport Next Generation 2015, a new event that will run concurrently with SITL Paris 2015, as well as Intralogistics Europe 2015. These events will take place from 31 March to 2 April 2015 in Hall 7.2 of the Paris Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre, in the southeast of Paris (France).

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.
