Medicortex Finland Announces Agreement with Pro-Lab

Jaa

Medicortex Finland Oy announces that it has entered into an agreement with a Canadian company Pro-Lab Diagnostics Inc. Pro-Lab will be responsible for the regulatory process and registration of the ProbTBI™ brain injury detection kit in Canada and UK. Following a brain injury, the diagnostic test will detect in urine and saliva a unique brain injury biomarker which has been discovered and characterized by Medicortex. The agreement gives Pro-Lab exclusive rights for sales in the UK and Canada from which Medicortex will receive royalties. The agreement between the parties is confidential and no other details about the content of the agreement are disclosed.

Pro-Lab will be responsible for the clinical validation of the kit prior to the commercial launch in the territories. In addition to the licensing agreement, the parties intend to initiate a development collaboration, the details of which are being discussed currently.

“We are very proud that Pro-Lab Diagnostics has chosen to cooperate with us to get ProbTBI™ registered and approved in Canada and the UK. This is a great success for Medicortex as a company, but more importantly this is a big step forward for patients with concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) who will greatly benefit from using a novel biomarker in brain injury diagnosis and management,” says Dr. Adrian Harel, Founder and CEO of Medicortex.

“The agreement reinforces Pro-Lab Diagnostics’ commitment to continue explore scientific and technological advances and their application in Diagnostics” says Mr. Robert Rae, CEO & President of Pro-Lab Diagnostics.

There is an enormous global market potential for a biomarker based rapid diagnostic kit for detecting traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussion because current symptom-based assessment procedures and imaging methods are inadequate for finding diffuse axonal injuries.

Lenovo Data Center Group Delivers Broad Edge Computing Portfolio, Expands Investments in IoT22.2.2019 16:13:00Tiedote

Next week at MWC Barcelona, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will showcase continued investments in its solutions supporting IoT and edge computing as part of its IoT growth plan over the next few years. Building on the momentum of its fifth consecutive quarter of profit growth, Lenovo DCG is building a portfolio that takes infrastructure to where the data is, whether that be in the traditional data center, in the cloud or increasingly, at the edge. Today, around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. This migration is driving increased concerns around data privacy, security and regulations coupled with challenges of latency, bandwidth and downtime. Lenovo is addressing these challenges by creating a broad portfolio of edge computing offerings that address the different ways that customers want to deploy edge computing solutions for IoT use cases.
