A new scientific and industrial consortium has recently been set up in Barcelona, Spain, to develop antibacterial coatings from microalgae for hip and knee implants – the goal is to prevent tissue inflammation, infections and prosthesis rejection. Another consortium, coordinated from Paris, France, is to create compounds for anti-ageing drugs, food supplements, cosmetics and ‘bioremediation agents’ from sponges, echinoderms and soft corals.
