The Nanomed3D Solution

Research has shown that engineered tissues can be successfully constructed through the recreation of a biologically active extracellular environment in which the tissue can be developed.

The Nanomed3D Solution
Nanomed3D has developed and produces, patented nano bio-materials which provide a stable 3 dimensional scaffold to which cells adhere to form tissues. These peptides spontaneously assemble in water to form hydrogels, which resemble the nanostructure of the extracelular matrix found in connective tissue, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone and skin, whose major components are collagen, fibronectin and elastin.
These scaffolds are a fundamental requirement of regenerative medicine applications such as the regeneration of damaged tissue, including injuries deriving from lesions of the spinal cord, neurodegenerative diseases, maxillo facial and skeletal replacement and any other type of cell therapy.
Moreover, Nanomed3D patented bio-materials are made of sequences of self-assembling peptides. Peptides are short chains of naturally occurring amino acids which are innocuous and biocompatible. These self-assembling peptide nano-structures can be tuned for specific cell types by adjusting their rigidity and structural density.
Nanomed3D patented bio-materials are designed for specific cell types and can include functional “motifs”  which interact with the cell surface. In this way, a custom nanostructure can stimulate certain useful mechanisms in the cell colony. These customizable motifs are at the core of the Nanomed3D technology.

Facing the Challenges of Regenerative Medicine

Living cells interact with each other and with their surroundings in complex and unique ways. The biological world is three dimensional and yet since its beginning, biology has been carried out on the flat surfaces of test tubes, slides and petri dishes. The growing field of regenerative medicine requires controlled, predictable and scalable environments for cell culture.

  • Cells require a three dimensional space to thrive, differentiate and form tissues
  • Some types of cell do not grow outside of the body unless they are embedded in the appropriate structure
  • Manipulating cells can alter their structure and function
  • Materials used to handle and treat cells which are then re-implanted must be biocompatible, sterile and innocuous
  • Each type of cell has it’s own precise 3D microenvironment for optimum cellular homeastasis and function
  • Cells which have been outside the body may not graft graft, survive or differentiate when re-implanted


Patents and Licenses

Nanomed3D holds two proprietary patents to its core technology: functionalized self-assembling peptides for regenerative applications. Nanomed3D patent portfolio has been increasing with new patent applications over the last years. Nanomed3D is open to licensing its proprietary technology in specific areas of applications and territories.
