The challenge of the cosmetics industry: discovering compounds that block pollutants in contact with the skin.

Scientific research shows that polluting particles are extremely fine and highly dangerous. Our test allows to quantify the percentage of particulate passes through the skin model to determine the protective factor of the cosmetic compound. We call it "antipollution test": it is fast, innovative and effective. Air pollution can cause serious health problems, especially when the exposure to certain pollutants occurs for a prolonged period of time. According to the World Health Organization, the concentration of pollutants in the air significantly exceeds the recommended limits, and it is the cause of millions of deaths worldwide - /en/, while [...]

Reducing the time and cost of screening for new compounds and limiting the number of animals used in in-vivo tests is the future of drug discovery.

Cristina Degrassi, CEO of MTTLab, tells us about her experience with React4life which led to the publication of the paper on Altex: "3D fluid-dynamic ovarian cancer model resembling systemic drug administration for efficacy assay". The ability to control drugs quickly and efficiently with a more accurate preclinical tumor model is of great importance in drug development, as the tests used still have severe problems and poor predictivity. Considering the limitations of animal experiments to predict human response and the high need for new drugs, it is necessary to include highly reproducible human systemic tumor models in preclinical analyzes to [...]
