Accumulating evidence suggests that a subgroup of patients with severe COVID-19 might have a cytokine storm syndrome that leads to hyperinflammation of their lung tissue. Challenge is how to interrupt this hyperinflammation without critically suppressing immune system. SkQ1 compound developed by Mitotech SA (Luxembourg) has shown to interrupt cytokine storm in animal models and may be irreplaceable in preventing fatalities in COVID-19.
MC19: Early Detection of Epidemics and Health Status Prediction Using Intelligent Wireless Body Sensors
MyelinS, a Luxembourgish startup (LLC in the incorporation phase) is proposing a novel solution for early detection of epidemics (particularly Covid-19), health status daily analysis, and prediction of critical health situations caused by the virus without any direct medical intervention, avoiding thereby any risk of transmission of the virus to the healthcare workers, as well as to healthy people. Unlike any existing solutions, the proposed detection and prediction system is non-invasive (on mobile phones), accurate, and rapid (detection in less than 1.5 minutes). The proposed solution ...
