  • People with insulin-treated diabetes are faced with the same difficult dilemma several times each day: How much insulin should I take?

    “I myself have diabetes type 1. It made me want to develop a tool that can provide accurate assistance, right then and there, rather than just general advice and rules of thumb”, says Fredrik Ståhl.

    Project name: Personalised decision support for insulin-treated diabetes

    Project category: E-health/M-health

    Disease area: Diabetes

    Geographical region: South Sweden

  • Genital herpes is a very painful disease that is often infectious even when the carrier has no symptoms. 500 million people suffer from it and, as 20 million new people are infected each year, the disease is considered epidemic. There is no cure – but a Swedish research team is working on developing a therapeutic vaccine:

    “We’re working according to a whole new principle and have achieved very good results”, says project manager Jan-Åke Liljeqvist.

    Project name: Development of a therapeutic vaccine against genital herpes simplex virus 2 infection

    Project category: Medicine

    Disease area: Infectious

    Geographical region: West Sweden

  • Many women suspected of having gynaecological cancer undergo unnecessary surgical procedures. In others, the cancer is not detected until it has developed too far. A simple blood test can change all this.

    Project name: Biomarker test for cervical, ovarian and endometrial cancer

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Cancer

    Geographical region: East Middle Sweden

  • When detected at an early stage, pancreatic cancer is curable through surgery. However, at this stage, the cancer has no symptoms and is therefore currently difficult to diagnose. This project aims for an early detection of this deadly cancer. through a simple blood test.

    Project name: Test for early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Cancer

    Geographical region: South Sweden

  • A whole new way of treating type 2 diabetes is about to enter a clinical phase.

    “Our patentable substances operate through an entirely new mechanism which is not based on insulin”, says Tore Bengtsson, professor of physiology at Stockholm University.

    The function has been proven in animals, and if the team continues on this successful journey all the way to the finish line, at least 400 million people will be there waiting for a new drug.

    Project name: A revolutionary way to combat type 2 diabetes, independent of the insulin pathway

  • A new microscopic analysis method can drastically improve opportunities for more confident diagnoses, and thus more personalised and effective treatments of diseases including cancer.

    The method provides both qualitative and quantitative data on a whole new level – and from a single tissue section.

    Project name: AMLC – A novel method for advanced in vitro diagnostics of cancer

    Project category: Diagnostics

    Disease area: Cancer

    Geographical region: South Sweden

  • The Lund company called Apoglyx has patented a group of substances that reduce blood sugar levels in a new way compared to today’s medicines. The discovery can provide a gentle drug that is particularly suitable for the many diabetic patients who suffer from impaired renal function.

  • When a drug concentration in the blood varies greatly, the treatment is impaired. The solution could be Upsalite – a porous material that helps release medication slowly. In five years, Upsalite may be included in medication against, for example, inflammatory bowel disease, which today affects 1% of the population and requires lifelong treatment.

    Project name: Improved treatment of inflammatory bowel disease with the help of mesoporous Upsalite

  • Genetically modified lactic acid bacteria accelerate the healing of wounds in patients with diabetes. In Europe alone, six million people could be helped by this innovation – at a fraction of the cost of other biological drugs.

    Project name: Biotherapy for faster wound healing in people with diabetes

  • People today have difficulty taking and, above all, following rational decisions – especially when it comes to lifestyle issues that affect our health. But our ancient triune brain knows better. What would seem to be a simple game, SidekickHealth, triggers the right reward mechanisms and can help slow down a tsunami of diseases of affluence, which today already consumes 70–80 per cent of Western world’s healthcare resources.
