Pushing Innovation For Our Clients

We have an outstanding track record of inventing, co-inventing and co-developing innovations that have already reached and helped millions of patients. Next to our client services, we continue this work through close ties with medical innovators and experts around the world. Often these activities give rise to additional novel opportunities for our clients.

Examples:

  • Regulator T Cells: Adaptive therapy of ALS, MS, SLE, GvH and other autoimmune diseases (phase I/II).
  • Cancer cell therapy: Helping the immune system fight back by combining old medical wisdom with the best cancer drugs and procedures (phase I/II).
  • 3 chamber bag: Improved IV nutrition for millions of patients that can not digest food for shorter or longer periods (on the market).
  • Probiotic drops: For infants with colic [on the market] and for prevention of neonatal necrotising enterocolitis (IND).
  • Lozenge for oral pain: BUPI is the most efficient pain treatment of head & neck cancer and Sjogren patients (in phase III).
  • Biomarker for better patient triaging: The first and most powerful low-grade inflammation marker (suPARnostic) predicts disease severity, outcome (on the market) and long-term health risks.
  • Dividable cryotubes: Facilitating more reliable biomarker research.
  • Improved MRI contrast agent: For better diagnose and monitoring (phase I).
  • Allergy: Automatic Skin Prick Testing for improved diagnostic procedure.

We initiate and support pre-clinical and clinical research in areas where current medical solutions are insufficient or non-existent. The choice of research topics is inspired by medical issues we encounter through our clients and facilitated by leading medical innovators around the world.

In these research efforts, we do not pursue patents or make data or methods proprietary; in the interest of our clients, we always donate our findings by letting collaborators publish, share and transfer new know-how to university hospitals around the world. We feel that today’s almost exaggerated drive to protect new knowledge and insights in the name of commercial development constitutes one of the major obstacles in making new findings and treatment approaches available to patients faster. The more knowledge we give – the more we receive. This is one of our “secrets” of how to stay at the cutting edge of medical research.

Current Rigi Care research interests include:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) / Motor Neuron Disease (MND) 
  • Colon Cancer (cell therapy)
  • Emergency Triaging (biomarkers)
  • Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD)
  • Preventive Healthcare (mental and physical health)
  • Herbal Medicine (chronic conditions and general prevention)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Melanoma Cancer (cell therapy)
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS)
  • Rehabilitation (neurological trauma)
