Molecularly imprinted polymers studied

Molecularly imprinted polymers studied. A class of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) can bind to small organic molecules as readily as—or more readily than—natural antibodies. MIPs are effective at lower concentrations than their natural counterparts, and the polymers display potential for greater stability, lower cost, and more customized manufacture than has previously been possible, according to Semorex

Inc. (Jerusalem, Israel; +972 8 9725539). The company's MIPs comprise a proprietary combination of functional monomers and other components. During MIP synthesis, the polymers are imprinted to match the size, shape, charge, and functional groups of the target molecules by using the molecules themselves as a template. Development of MIPs is expected to facilitate new treatments for heart disease and cancers.
