Commercial future for Model Gut
Date:2/26/2013

The Dynamic Gastric Model, developed from years of research at the Institute of Food Research, has taken significant steps towards improving its commercial use by food and drug companies worldwide.

IFR and the technology management company Plant Bioscience Limited (PBL) have secured funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) to further develop the Dynamic Gastric Model to validate and improve how well it simulates the release of nutrients or drugs in humans.

PBL has also signed an exclusive license agreement with Bioneer regarding use of the Dynamic Gastric Model (DGM). Bioneer has also acquired PBL's highly successful DGM contract research business (www.modelgut.com) which provides specialist DGM services to the pharmaceutical and food-related industries.

The DGM is based on 15 years of research at the Institute of Food Research, in partnership with PBL. It accurately simulates the physical and biochemical processes that occur within the human stomach. It is the world's first computer controlled, mechanical simulator of gastric digestion that works in real-time to process real chewed foods or meals and oral pharmaceutical or nutraceutical products.

The commercialisation of the model represents a significant achievement for IFR in developing research and making it commercially viable. It is an example of IFR's commitment to the translation of our science for the benefit of society and commerce.

IFR will continue to work with the DGM, as part of its core research into understanding the complex interaction between health, the food we eat and our gut. The new two-year project, with funding from the BBSRC's Super Follow on Fund scheme, is worth over 900k and will refine and improve models to ensure that IFR can continue its strategic research to determine how the nutritional quality and health benefits of the food we eat can be influenced by t
