Discovery of a new molecule by the Olmix Group in Algae
The Olmix group and the French National Public Institute for Agronomic Research (INRAe) have collaborated to demonstrate the effect of algae on the modulation of immune mediators in cellular models and in animals, including the identification of the metabolic pathways involved in this activation (Berri et al. 2016 and 2017).
Preclinical collaborations with research institutes led to the discovery of the molecules involved in the immunostimulation and the mechanism of action.
Biochemical research in USA and Europe led to the discovery of the molecules involved in the modulation of the immune system called the Marine Sulfated Polysaccharides (MSP).
Research between Olmix group and University of Nantes and Rennes 1 are engaged to study the effect of MSP and other molecules on the immune system and pathogens in relevant clinical models. Preclinical studies show very promising results on immunodepressed and infected models and patents are filled.
The project is awarded with grand laureate I-Lab price of the BPIFrance
The project MAPOLI (Marine Polysaccharides for Immunity) is granted grand Lauréat for the 2019 edition of the i-Lab competition
