Urralburu: "This week we will meet with the Socialist Party, but the light and stenographers of citizens and the media"

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

The Secretary General of Podemos and Secretary of Organization in Madrid attended the State Citizen Council, where they have established criteria to form the regional negotiating group and have set procedures and objectives to be carried out during it.

Oscar Urralburu announced at the outlet of the Council that "after taking responsibility and the challenge of preventing the PP to govern the region, any possible agreement to fulfill the commitment to ensure that behind closed doors is not negotiated in the offices but that, on the contrary, the public and the media are witnessing the process. "

Meanwhile, Maria Angeles Garcia Navarro, he assured that the red lines we already fixed and will be very present at the meeting with the PSOE.

For Garcia Navarro, any agreement must go first, besides by the agreements signed during the election campaign (Pact Moneo, Covenant Against Poverty Pact Defense of Public Health, etc.) – For prioritization an agenda of national rescue to end evictions without alternative housing and break with institutional collaboration with financial institutions that hold these practices.

Second, it continued the Secretary of Organization "for Plan Income Guaranteed to undertake to provide a minimum living light and water to those 140,000 families in the region who do not receive any income, as well as the commitment that not a single child goes hungry in the region, providing scholarships and maintaining school canteens in no time. "

The Secretary General, Oscar Tovar Urralburu reminded the PSOE have to give a 180 degree turn to its policies because "everyone know the distance that has always existed between what is said and done this match" .

To Urralburu what should the PSOE is "get rid of the bad practices of the old policy, because it is not understood how the socialist group has given the green light by the European Parliament to the first advance of the Free Trade Agreement with EU-USA ( TTIP) ".

Both Garcia Navarro, as Urralburu have made clear that the proposed change that has voted citizenship throughout the country on May 24, should be put in each region but always in a manner consistent with the national project that represents we, a project that aims to represent only the interests of a party, but it goes beyond representing the vocation of change that Spanish society has expressed at the polls.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, the autonomous deputies can Murcia along with the rest of the regions have conducted a training session by the secretary of Institutional Action, Help Honorato.

Han to demonstrate its practical application in the release of anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory compounds

Murciano Research Institute and Agricultural Development and Food (imide), under the Ministry of Agriculture and Water, and the University of Murcia (UMU), have succeeded in developing a method for obtaining fibroin nanoparticles and other insoluble fibrous protein or sparingly soluble in water, by employing the combination of ionic liquids and ultrasound.

They have to demonstrate its practical application in the release of anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Biotechnology equipment IMIDA began in 2007 a research dedicated to developing applications as silk fibroin biomaterial in tissue engineering and Nanomedicine.

The unique properties of the silk fibroin, such as biocompatibility, in combination with the slow degradation and their ability to incorporate drugs have fueled a growing interest in this material for a variety of applications Nanomedicine, such as slow-release nanoparticles bioactive compounds and controlled in suitable therapeutic targets.

In this sense, the director of IMIDA, Adrian Martinez, said that "the research on biomaterials silk represents a breakthrough in the field of non-food uses of agricultural products, and also opens up numerous possibilities for business development, to be directed to the biomedical market with growing demand for products with high added value, resulting in a significant revaluation of the sericulture activity. "

In this line, the IMIDA has established several collaborations with research groups at the University of Murcia, such as Green Chemical Engineering and Nanotechnology, directed by professor Gloria Víllora.

As part of this collaboration has already obtained a national patent of the 'method for obtaining fibroin particles regenerated using ionic liquids and ultrasound' and has made a publication in the international journal Journal of Applied Polymer Science.

According to team leader IMIDA Biotechnology, Dr. Jose Luis Cenis, these types of nanoparticles are a significant improvement over existing ones.

Firstly, they are more biocompatible polymeric or metallic nanoparticles, decomposing into peptides that are reabsorbed and, secondly, its manufacture is simple and inexpensive sustainable.

Furthermore, the reactivity of its surface allows loading with a variety of bioactive molecules of synthetic or natural origin, as well as peptides targeting to the cellular targets which must act.

Practical application

In addition to developing a new processing technique nanoparticles, it has succeeded in demonstrating its practical application in the release of antitumor and anti-inflammatory compounds.

In the first case we have collaborated with Metalofármacos research group, directed by Professor José Ruiz, from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Murcia.

This group specializes in developing metalofármacos with antitumor application;

specifically, various derivatives of cisplatin and ruthenium and iridium complexes.

As part of this collaboration it was shown that silk fibroin nanoparticles loaded with cisplatin precursor have significantly higher cytotoxicity than the free compound in various tumor cell lines.

The result of this work has been the publication 'Antitumor properties of platinum (IV) prodrug-loaded silk fibroin nanoparticles'.

In addition to an increase in cytotoxicity, cytotoxic vectoring in the nanoparticles allows a slower release of the same and its targeting to tumor cells reducing their adverse systemic effect.

In addition to antitumor load, it is also testing the loading and release of other bioactive plant compounds with antioxidant and antitumor effect.

An example is resveratrol vine.

By loading into the nanoparticles it is achieved a significant antiinflammatory effect in a model of ulcerative colitis in rats.
