Patent
Catholic University of Leuven and University of Antwerp | Date: 2017-02-10

A method of treating and/or preventing Dravet Syndrome in a patient such as a patient previously diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, by administering an effective dose of fenfluramine or its pharmaceutically acceptable salt to that patient. Dravet Syndrome patients are typically children under the age of 18 and are treated at a preferred dose of less than about 0.5 to about 0.01 mg/kg/day.

Patent
Agfa Healthcare and University of Antwerp | Date: 2017-03-22

A computerized tomographic image exposure and reconstruction method wherein an object is subjected to irradiation during a relative movement of a source of radiation, said object and a radiation detector and wherein a digital representation of the radiation image of said object is computed by applying a tomographic reconstruction algorithm to image data read out of the irradiated radiation detector. A number of projection images are generated, each of said projection images being generated by integrating X-ray beams continuously emitted during said relative movement through a predefined movement path, and the created projection images are modeled in a tomographic reconstruction algorithm.


Provided herein are filtration membranes for water treatment, and methods for preventing fouling of such membranes. The method described herein comprises grafting the membrane surface with an organic moiety, by reacting the surface with an organometallic reagent, a phosphonate, a phosphinate, or an organosilane.


Patent
University of Antwerp | Date: 2017-02-01

The present invention relates to novel compounds and probes which have a common chemical structure necessary to obtain potent inhibitory activity against KLK4 and/or may be used for the detection of KLK4 peptides and their activity. It further relates to the use of these compounds and methods for inhibiting and/or detecting KLK4 activity in vitro and in vivo by making use of said probes or inhibitors. The compounds of the invention differ from prior art compounds at least in the presence of phenyl guanidine (instead of e.g. benzyl guanidine) and/or the presence of a heteroatom in the tail group, their combined presence unexpectedly leading to potent and selective KLK4 inhibitory activity.


Patent
Vito Nv and University of Antwerp | Date: 2017-04-19

the present invention provides a method for the selective recovery of a metal of interest, such as Cr, from metal-containing slag material via a one-step oxidative alkaline leaching process wherein the waste material is contacted with an alkaline leaching solution comprising an alkali metal hydroxide and an alkali metal or alkaline earth metal hypochlorite whereby simultaneously (i) the metal (Cr) is leached from the metal-containing slag and (ii) an aqueous alkaline leach liquor comprising the metal(s) of interest (Cr) is obtained. This way, the valuable metals can be recovered from this waste material and, at the same time, the environmental impact of these waste materials is reduced and their recyclability is improved by removal of the detrimental metal(s).


The present invention relates to the field of ventilator-associated pneumonia, caused by mechanical ventilation of a subject. In particular, it relates to the identification of subjects at risk of developing ventilator-associated pneumonia upon mechanical ventilation of said subject; wherein the identification of said subjects being at risk of developing VAP is based on the determination of one or more interleukins. The present invention also relates to the use of interleukin-reducing compounds for reducing the severity and/or progression of ventilator associated pneumonia in a subject being mechanically ventilated.
