Inorganic Fullerene Coating For Medical Devices | YEDA Technology Transfer

OverviewImplantable or insertable medical devices must be made of materials with unique properties in addition to biocompatibility to address potential damage from the physiological environment and to maintain their effectiveness over time. For instance, urethral medical devices (e.g., catheters) are damaged by the encrustation of minerals from the urine, which results in their frequent replacement. Various medical applications suffer from excessive friction, severely compromising their function leading to prolonged treatments. Prof. Tenne and his team developed a novel method for coating medical devices using inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles to increase their lubricity and prevent encrustation. This coating is applicable for various devices such as stents, catheters, dialysis tubes, cannulas, and sutures. , The NeedImplantable or insertable medical devices must be biocompatible and possess specific mechanical properties depending on their designated use. In addition, they should also be resistant to potential damage by the physiological environment to ensure their long-lasting effectiveness. In the case of urethral medical devices (e.g., catheters), their exposure to calcium and phosphate ions from the urine results in the formation of crystals on the biomaterial surface, a process known as encrustation. Encrustation may cause infections and harm the medical device's functionality, resulting in its frequent replacement, which is inconvenient to the patient and costly. Also, excessive friction severely compromises the insertion and retrival of medical devices from narrow constrictions in the body, and leads to pain and morbidity of the paitent. In this context, one of the field's major goals is to search for new products that would generate less friction during insertion and retrival of catheters, endoscopes and laproscopes through narrow natural and purposely cut constrictions in the human body. Additionally, coating of endodontic files (EFs) used for root canal treatment can benefit from this technology as well. Finding a way to reduce file breakage during root canal treatment would greatly influence the costs of treatment and the prognosis of treated teeth stages and conditions. Therefore, there is a need for an efficient, general coating method to increase lubricity, thus preventing encrustation and reducing friction. , The SolutionProf. Reshef Tenne and his team developed a novel method for coating medical devices to reduce friction and increase lubricity using inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles (IF‑WS2, IF-MoS2) 1,2 , Technology Essence Fullerene-like nanoparticles (i.e., IF-WS2, IF-MoS2) are deposited on top of medical devices and change their surface properties dramatically. These nanoparticles produce coating films with a relatively small tendency to agglomerate. This architecture, together with the low affinity of the nanoparticles towards the environment (due to closed caged moieties which lack dandling bonds), results in their superior lubricity. , Applications and AdvantagesApplications Coating implantable or insertable medical devices such as stents; catheters; dialysis tubes; cannulas; and sutures   Advantages Non-toxic Cheap Can be easily applied to existing medical devices Biocompatible – Initial tests in animals suggest safety from toxic effects , References1.            Adini AR, Feldman Y, Cohen SR, et al.

The Pulse NanoMED™ System is a nanoscale interventional tool to help diagnose and treat complex vascular occlusions unreachable with existing treatments. Under the influence of an external rotating magnet, the iron-oxide nanoparticles can reach and disrupt distal vessel occlusions. Stroke occurs when there is a halt in blood flow to the brain. In the majority of stroke cases, an artery becomes obstructed by a blood clot. The blood clot must be cleared to restore flow and allow for brain tissue to remain viable. Current Stroke treatments involve extracting the blood clot with catheter-based systems and/or via the administration of a clot-busting drug that “melts” the clot over time. As a blood vessel becomes obstructed, it presents a challenge for the flow of blood to reach the clot and by nature, that of the clot-busting drug to reach the clot as well.
