BioLineRx (NASDAQ: BLRX) (TASE: BLRX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to identifying, in-licensing and developing promising therapeutic candidates, announced today that research underlying BL-9020, for the treatment of Type 1 diabetes, won the Hebrew University's prestigious Kaye Innovation Award.
The award was granted to Hebrew University immunologist Professor Ofer Mandelboim, who studied the function of a protein receptor called NKp46 in the development of Type 1 diabetes. Prof. Mandelboim showed that NKp46 present on Natural Killer cells has a critical role in the development of the disease in mice, and that inhibition of the receptor almost entirely prevented the development of diabetes. This groundbreaking research is the basis for BioLineRx’s BL-9020, a novel monoclonal antibody which targets the Natural Killer (NK) receptor NKp46 for the prevention and treatment of Type 1 diabetes.

The camera and app also come with a set of rather cool features which we've not seen on any other camera of this type. The first is called RapidRecap, which lets you see a huge amount of activity on review in a short space of time. It does this by using some big computer crunching code on the cloud to cram together a day's worth of footage in a few seconds. It's very cool and something that more camera makers should try".
