Laboratoires Quinton spends 5% of its revenue on R+D+i in Spain. In the last few years, Quinton has developed 4 main lines of research in order to expand on what is known about the therapeutic effects of Marine Therapy in the area of immunology, ophthalmology, dermatology and sport.
The line of research on immunology, coordinated by Dr. José Miguel Sempere, Professor in Biotechnology at Alicante University, analyses the effect of Quinton Plasma, Quinton Isotonic, on the immune system that is fundamental for health. The immune system is involved in all pathological processes and in recovering health by fighting infections, degenerative diseases, cancer etc.
The research in the field of dermatology is thanks to the clinical success of Marine Therapy over the years in treating burns, wounds, psoriasis, dermatitis, etc. The objective is to identify the mechanisms of action involved in these therapeutic effects and assess its use for other skin conditions. Doctors. Inés González Sánchez and Vanesa Escudero, from the Universidad CEU Cardenal Herrera are in charge of the team that has started this research work and they are expecting very encouraging results.
The research work in the field of ophthalmology is led by Dr Manuel Díaz, Professor of Ophthalmology at Valencia University and the objective is to find out about the mechanisms of action of the Quinton solution in different eye/ophthalmological diseases, in which significant improvements have been observed. Data has been recorded in both the studies on dermatology and ophthalmology.
The use of Totum Sport –Quinton Hypertonic- in top-level competitive sport and sport in general, which is very physically demanding, is the field of study of different international teams, and it includes the work of institutions such as Alicante University, Universidad Católica de Murcia, Granada University and the elite sports school, Centro Europeo de Alto Rendimiento. Using Totum Sport helps prevent muscle injury and it shortens recovery time after a race or a competition. It prevents muscle spasms or cramps, it optimizes physical performance, it increases stamina, it maximizes the work load capacity, it increases the attention span and the capacity to concentrate and it delays the onset of fatigue. The objective of these studies is to get in-depth information on the mechanism of action of Totum Sport in each situation.
