French BioBeach December 2014 Newsletter
Dear French BioBeach community,
Holiday Season has officially begun, let the rush to the end of the year begin…accompanied by holiday parties and friends/family gatherings. We started the month with the sad news San Diego won't be the home of the 2017 America's cup (Congrats Bermuda!), then we forgot all about it when diving into planning some 2015 FBB events & opportunities for your companies.
Let's begin with a recap of our November events with our FocusOn Biosimilars, our 3rd edition of the FBB Fall Regatta, as well as the Innovation Night and the 2014 Biocom Annual Dinner we attended.
Join us this Friday to network with the community during our monthly Happy Hour rendez-vous. Mark your calendars for our 3 upcoming 2015 events, an event on the Latest Innovations to Optimize Point-Of-Care Rapid Diagnostic Testing, a Biocom Breakfast on European Expansion Strategies and our South Bio Alliance Delegation coming in SoCal to meet with you.
Attend one of our members webinar, and conclude by reading about the development of 3-D Organ Tissues, a Report on the Boom in California’s Biomedical Industry as well as 5 San Diego Products Named Top 10 Life Sciences Innovations of 2014.
Thanks to your support we continue to monitor what happens in the Life Sciences community fostering new partnering and business opportunities.
Happy December month and Thank You for reading,

The French BioBeach Team

Technology of the Month

SATT Sud-Est is a French BioBeach partner specialized in Intellectual Property. Each month we will present a technology from their portfolio. This month, we would like to highlight a technology that allows a new safe Molecule to Prevent, alleviate and treat acute, subacute and chronic pains

Current pain treatments: bad sides effects, in particular gastrointestinal and renal deleterious side effects, but also tolerance, interfere with inflammation.
Nav 1.9 channel : more and more studied pathway on pain understanding.
Pain treatment for acute, subacute or chronic pain. The technology includes also in vitro, in vivo or ex vivo screening methods for identifying agents that modulates the targeted Nav channel.

Key Benefits Vs State of the Art
-No side effect, no toxicity
-New local treatment for pain at least as efficient as Ibuprofen
-Molecule which treats specifically the pain’s origin (no systemic action)
-Original and cheap molecule, easy to obtain
