HEBERPROT-P: CIGB, nanotechnology and diabetes


Post By @CubanWindow


A new generation of HEBERPROT-P, a leading drug in the treatment of diabetic foot in Cuba and several countries in the world, will allow in a few years to treat topically one of the most severe complications of diabetes mellitus.

It is the integration of epidermal growth factor (EGF) in a new type of nanoparticles called quatsomas, develops by the CIGB in conjunction with the Institute of Materials Sciences of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).

A new hope is seen in the effort to continue reducing the rates of diabetic foot ulcer amputation and to increase the quality of life of patients suffering from this disease. However, timely prevention of these severe complications remains the most effective therapy.

The American Health Care Act, among other things eliminate low-income support grants to obtain coverage and obligations to expand health insurance. Thanks to this Act approximately 24 million Americans will be left uninsured.

Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) better could not have described what it means:

“Pathetic. That’s the word to describe this process and this bill. If the American people could sue Congress for malpractice – my Republican friends would be in deep trouble. How could you do this? How could you do this to the people you represent?

Cuba it’s looking for business opportunities, and the foreign capital is the key.


…“rid ourselves of unfounded fears of foreign capital; we are not heading toward, nor will we head toward capitalism, this is totally ruled out, as is established in our Constitution, and will be maintained, but we should not be afraid, and erect obstacles to what we can do within the framework of existing law.”

Raul Castro Ruz, Cuban President speech @ the  National Assembly of People’s Power

Talking Points:



For Cuba 2017 foreign trade must be strengthened, while the foreign investment process must become more dynamic, in order to meet the country’s economic needs

Since 2014, Cuba has emphasized that its economic development largely depends on increasing the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate, which over the last decade has been steady at around 2%, almost half of the Latin American average over the same period.

Reflections: A mirror in the web from Cuba


Post By @CubanWindow

Another goal scored against those who continue to draw the beautiful island as a missing point on the map of the social digital dynamics.

Reflejos (Reflections) is a platform created under the .cu domain (, from 100 x 100 Cuban servers that users can access freely and at no cost from the Youth Computer Club or other device and in which they have a space to share opinions, interests and needs in text format, images and videos, far from the censorship that other platforms apply to the bloggers who try to share their truth from the island, the truth that the big media hide us, which has no echo in the networks.

It is a tool designed and programmed by the Clubs themselves based on the content management made available to Cuban Internet users.

You can search for real cubans blogs from A to Z …. HERE
