Qool Therapeutics raises $8m to support temp management device

Early stage med device developer Qool Therapeutics said today it raised $8 million in a Series A-1 round to support development and trials of its Qool device designed for targeted temperature management and exercise recovery. Joining the funding round was Zhongji Holdings and Join Medical Technology, Tampcap LLC, BrilliMedical International, BioPacific Investors, Western Technology Investment and FundRx, the Silicon Valley-based company said. Qool Therapeutics said that in addition to the funding, it has also received an award from the US Department of Defense’s Defense Innovation unit Experimental organization. The company’s Qool device is designed for targeted temperature management and exercise recovery and is intended for use with multiple conditions. Those conditions include cardiac arrest, acute myocardial infarction, stroke, traumatic brain injury, cardiogenic shock, status epilepticus, encephalitis, meningitis, burns, heat stroke, hyperthermia and sepsis and as a protective adjunct for vascular surgery. The system is comprised of a control unit and delivery tube designed to deliver frozen saline particles to the lungs, using the large surface area of the lungs to direct blood flow to the heart and brain and cool the body, the company said. “By adding these premier new investors to the company, we can quickly accelerate our product development efforts. Our technology is designed to be non-invasive, rapid, and compatible with the flow of patient care, ...

Authors: Sabet Sarvestani F, Azarpira N Abstract Heart and cerebral infarctions, as two important ischemic diseases, lead to the death of tissues due to inadequate blood supply and high mortality worldwide. These statuses are started via blockage of vessels and depletion of oxygen and nutrients which affected these areas. After reperfusion and restoration of oxygen supply, more severe injury was mediated by multifaceted cascades of inflammation and oxidative stress. microRNAs (miRNAs) as the regulator of biological and pathological pathways can adjust these conditions by interaction with their targets. Also, miRNAs...

This study therefore investigated the impacts of RRCC on air pollution based on detailed household heating data obtained from intensive face-to-face interviews in Shandong province, China. The total contributions and specific contributions of coal, stoves, and coal-stove combinations to air pollution were simulated using the WRF-CAMx-PSAT model. The RRCC for heating had a considerable impact on air pollution, contributing 36.1, 9.1, and 16.1% of atmospheric SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 in winter, respectively. Different coal-stove combinations had different impacts on air pollution and mitigation efficiencies. The combination of bi...

CONCLUSIONS: Young adult IS patients in Korea exhibit low awareness and poor management of their risk factors. Although the short-term outcome was relatively favorable in those patients, having SLE was associated with unfavorable outcomes. More attention needs to be paid for improving awareness and controlling risk factors in this population. PMID: 33029967 [PubMed]

Authors: Jang Y, Kim DW, Yang KI, Byun JI, Seo JG, No YJ, Kang KW, Kim D, Kim KT, Cho YW, Lee ST, Drug Committee of Korean Epilepsy Society Abstract Autoimmune epilepsy is a newly emerging area of epilepsy. The concept of "autoimmune" as an etiology has recently been revisited thanks to advances in autoimmune encephalitis and precision medicine with immunotherapies. Autoimmune epilepsy presents with specific clinical manifestations, and various diagnostic approaches including cerebrospinal fluid analysis, neuroimaging, and autoantibody tests are essential for its differential diagnosis. The diagnosis is o...
