The present invention relates to a device and methods for non-invasive measurement of gut permeability and gastric empyting rate.
A robotic optical-biopsy scanning framework termed EndoDrone is proposed to improve the sensitivity of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy by automated scanning and real-time classification of wide tissue areas based on optical data. A “hot-spot” map is generated to highlight dysplastic or cancerous lesions for further scrutiny or concurrent resection. The device works as an add-on accessory to any conventional endoscope and to our knowledge is the first of its kind. The current functional prototype, which uses hyperspectral (HS) optical biopsy, is compatible with the anatomical dimensions of the colon, is envisaged to allow the identification of flat and small precancerous lesions that are currently missed.
66aa, ~7kDa serine/threonine-rich protein (STp) derived from Lactobacillus plantarum, resistant to proteolysis and with an immunomodulatory effect representing a potential novel therapeutic for IBD.
The technology relates to a novel rotative surgical clip and applicator that allows the clamping of large anatomical area for use in minimally invasive surgery.
