  • A type of cells from the patient’s own bone marrow, the mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) have been shown to halt the breakdown of the insulin-producing cells in patients who recently developed type 1 diabetes.

    Project name: Development of mesenchymal stem cells into an effective treatment for patients with type 1 diabetes

    Project category: Medicine

    Disease area: Diabetes

    Geographical region: Stockholm

  • The next generation of electromechanical implants is on the way. Currently, tests are in progress on a completely new prosthetic leg, which users are to be able to control with their minds.

    “This is about more than merely replacing an amputated limb. In the long run, the technology we are working on will change the whole concept of integrating humans with machines.”

    Project name: Neurally-controlled prosthetic leg

    Project category: Med Tech

    Disease area: Other

    Geographical region: West Sweden

  • The way cancer cells move reveals a lot about their tendency to form metastases, but there is no good way to measure this and the margin of error is very wide.

    “We have developed a completely new biophysical test enabling the cells’ behaviour to be measured. This is a completely new technological sector; it complements the diagnostics with information which was not previously obtainable”, says Michael Andäng.

    Project name: Cellrace – a tool for advanced cancer diagnosis

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Cancer

    Geographical region: Stockholm

  • With microscopically small needles and a new type of sensor, Swedish researchers are working on a new way for diabetics, among others, to quickly and simply measure glucose levels in the body – without drawing blood.

    – Blood-free testing in all areas of diagnostics is just around the corner.

    Project name: Verification of the sensor principle in a product for glucose measurement

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Diabetes

    Geographical region: East Middle Sweden

  • A Swedish research team has used recent findings on how the heart functions to develop a product that could revolutionise the treatment of patients with chronic heart failure.

    “This is a global healthcare problem, with millions of patients who are suffering greatly and also going in and out of hospital”, says inventor Jan Otto Solem, associate professor and former surgeon at the thoracic clinic at Lund University hospital.

    Project name: New product and method for the treatment of heart failure patients

    Project category: Med Tech

  • The fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria is ongoing on many fronts. One of the most important is tracing the actual infection – and there will soon be software capable of conducting in ten minutes the analyses that can currently take several weeks.

    Project name: Rapid share – real time infection tracking to limit the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Infectious

  • A Swedish invention could solve one of the major challenges within the care of premature infants: administering the exactly correct amount of oxygen at all times. In the tiny bodies of premature babies, with their fragile and as yet not fully developed organs, it is an extremely fine balance.

    Project name: System for monitoring oxygen treatment in neonatal care

    Project category: Med Tech

    Geographical region: Stockholm

  • One of the most important reasons why many cancer treatments do not give the desired result is that the tumour cells develop resistance to cisplatin, which is widely used in chemotherapy.

    “We have identified a molecule that makes the tumour sensitive to cisplatin again. It could potentially improve treatment for tens of thousands of cancer patients per year, only in Sweden”, says Thomas Helleday, professor of chemical biology at Karolinska Institutet.

    Project name: New treatment for cisplatin-resistant cancer with OGG1 inhibitors

    Project category: Medicine

    Disease area: Cancer

  • The aim is a “stiffness map” at the cellular level of a tissue sample, in which the various components in the tissue are visible as areas with different degrees of stiffness, where stiff cancer cells are clearly distinguishable from healthy and more elastic cells. This would make it easier and faster to distinguish healthy tissue from diseased tissue and diagnoses would be more specific.

    Project name: Instrument and method for future diagnostics in pathology

  • Current methods for gathering data and diagnosing people examined for work environment-related asthma are demanding in terms of both resources and time.

    “Our solution is a wireless instrument to measure lung function and an app. They combine to make the workflow much more efficient – it becomes much easier for patients and healthcare staff to access all measurements immediately, thereby hopefully enabling earlier diagnosis.”

    Project name: A time-saving diagnostic tool for asthma and other pulmonary diseases
