ELASTISLET aims to create a breakthrough development in encapsulation technology and its use in cell and tissue therapies for the treatment of type 1 and 2 diabetes. ELASTISLET will combine leading technologies in biomaterial design, production and processing, cross-linking/grafting technology and cell therapy, to synergistically integrate them into a new immune-isolation and biomimetic scaffolding approach for islet and cell transplantation in diabetes treatment. ELASTISLETs starting point is a highly innovative and versatile family of superior biomaterials, the Elastin-like Recombinamers (ELRs). Those innovative materials will be combined with the most cutting-edge encapsulation technologies, such as reactive LbL. ELASTISLET relies on the most innovative ideas taken from synthetic biology, nanobiotechnology and molecular and cellular biology to build the ideal niche for islet/cell encapsulation and transplantation. ELASTISLET main objective is to achieve a functional coating that fulfils, first, the basic requirements of optimal biocompatibility and physical properties (permselectivity) but, second, generate a capsule that can promote an intense and directed cross talk through all cell-material interfaces involved: the implant-surrounding tissue (outer) interface and cargo cells-capsule (inner) interface. At the end, a capsule that is able not only to cloak its content and isolate it from the immune rejection but that it is able to biologically interact with the surrounding tissues and its cargo simultaneously in a way that the implanted capsule will immediately interact and fuse with the surrounding tissues creating a real continuity of the extracellular matrix from the core of the capsule to the surrounding hosts tissues and procuring adequate nutrient supply. That will provide a physiologically ideal biomimetic environment for the implanted islets/cells to survive and function in the long term without perceiving a foreign, unusual or hostile environment.

The healthcare industry is experiencing unprecedented rates of drug failure, long development times and high costs - because current lab tests and disease models (in vitro) dont adequately predict drug effect in the patient (in vivo). To address this Challenge, three leading EU SMEs; Luxcel Biosciences Ltd, Axiogenesis AG and BMG Labtech GmbH, are partnering to bring to market, a fully integrated targeted metabolomics Test Platform, comprising physiologically relevant in vitro cell assays and easy to use test kits, configured for use with the multimode fluorescence plate reader; instrumentation, which is installed in, or else is easily accessible to every cell biology lab globally. The innovation Solution is made possible by Luxcels unique and patented optical nanosensor technology, and its integration to create entirely new functionally-connected in vitro tests. The scope of the project is to finalize development of the cell-based assay platform towards market introduction, productise, pilot and demonstrate it with key opinion leaders; for modular product launch through the project and full launch early 2019. Leveraging existing global sales channels, the three industrial partners are targeting revenues of EUR 15 million by 2023. In total, about 24-29 new jobs will be created by 2023; with 6 new jobs during the project. All three SMEs are passionate about the MetaCell-TM solution, and expect that a successful outcome will see them positioned as No. 1 in their respective fields in Europe and internationally.


Provided are assay systems for determining the therapeutic or toxic effect of a putative drug based on assaying its activity in cells which have been differentiated in vitro from stem cells, and induced to display a phenotype that resembles a disease to be treated.
