American Hotel Income Properties REIT LP (AHOTF)
MarketWatch, Stockhouse, OTC Markets, Dividend Channel, Marketbeat, Wallmine, Investors Hangout, Dividend Investor, Hotel News Resource, and Stockwatch reported earlier on American Hotel Income Properties REIT LP (AHOTF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Hotel Income Properties REIT LP (or AHIP) is a limited partnership created to invest in hotel real estate properties located in the U.S. The Company’s long-term goals are to build on its proven track record of successful investment, deliver reliable and consistent U.S. dollar denominated distributions to unitholders, and generate value via the continued growth of its diversified hotel portfolio. AHIP lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQX. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
An experienced management team consisting of proven hotel industry leaders, including award-winning entrepreneurs and executives, leads AHIP. The Company has three main business goals. One is to generate stable and growing cash distributions from hotel properties substantially in the U.S. The second is to enhance the value of its assets and maximize the long-term value of the hotel properties via active management. The third is to grow its asset base and increase its Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) per Unit via an accretive acquisition program, participation in strategic development opportunities and improvements to the properties through targeted value-added capital expenditure programs.
At present, AHIP has 112 hotels. The Company is engaged in increasing its portfolio of premium branded, select-service hotels in larger secondary markets that have varied and stable demand. AHIP hotels operate under brands affiliated with Marriott, Hilton, IHG, Wyndham and Choice Hotels by way of license agreements.
Last month, AHIP announced that it exercised its option to buy out the ground lease associated with its Fairfield Inn & Suites White Marsh hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. It has completed the purchase of land for US$1.9 million plus closing costs. The expectation is that this acquisition will increase AHIP's cash flow by about US$165,000 annually, through the elimination of lease payments earlier expensed for this property.
Earlier this month, AHIP announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Mr. John O'Neill, AHIP Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our first quarter results demonstrate the hotels we renovated in 2018 are now commanding higher guestroom rates, generating substantially more food and beverage revenues, and driving higher margins. The six hotels that were renovated by the end of January collectively saw first quarter ADR grow 3 percent and revenue grow nearly 7 percent compared to the same period of 2018. The strong contribution from these newly updated hotels was partially offset by the impacts of ongoing renovations during the quarter, which compressed occupancy rates for our portfolio."

Moreover, the gummies are gluten-free and made with kosher ingredients. Additionally, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. Banking associations from all the 50 states across the U.S. have written a letter to the Senate Banking Committee to pass and advance the bipartisan bill before it seeking to protect financial institutions from federal penalties for doing business with licensed marijuana businesses. In their letter delivered on April 20, the state banking associations observed that forcing cannabis businesses to operate on a cash-only basis exposes the businesses, their employees and the public to serious safety risks.
Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTC: PLPRF) is a branded cannabis-infused products manufacturer of edibles created to support a healthy and active lifestyle. Headquartered in San Mateo, California, PLUS™ concentrates on producing edibles using extracts to ensure compliant, dosable and delicious products that provide a consistent cannabis experience.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Biotechnology company and drug delivery platform innovator Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) this morning announced that combining Lexaria's DehydraTECH(TM) delivery technology with generic nanotech techniques has been proven to deliver 1,137% more cannabidiol ("CBD") into animal brain tissue following oral ingestion than certain existing industry formulations. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/EK01l.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.
Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to improve taste, remove odor, and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the United States, and internationally. Lexaria has entered into a R&D partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea, and supplements. These brands include ViPova™ and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Lexaria has conducted multiple rounds of studies including in vivo and human clinical. In absorption studies conducted on rats, for example, Lexaria detected nicotine in the animal’s bloodstream just two minutes after it entered the stomach. In a randomized, double blinded human clinical study, cannabidiol (CBD) was measure in the human bloodstream at a 317% higher rate 30 minutes after swallowing a capsule processed with DehydraTECH than a non-enhanced capsule of equal strength.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies. Lexaria has four distinct subsidiaries that focus on different market sectors: Hemp/CBD; Pharmaceutical; Cannabis; and Nicotine.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the end of 2018, the company’s patent portfolio includes 53 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 10 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally in 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third-partners and has signed royalty deals with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has contributed to several multi-hundred million-dollar valuations over the course of his career. He is supported by a growing team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $0.9744, up 9.48%, on 61,160 volume with 81 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 109,008 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.75/$2.43.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals (TSX.V: QMC) (OTC: QMCQF) (FSE: 3LQ), a British Columbia-based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties, is advancing toward potential commercial production of lithium at its Irgon Dike through the ongoing development of a NI 43-101-compliant resource estimate.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.158875, up 1.39%, on 23,000 volume with 11 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 53,378 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1155/$0.4607.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Growing demand for CBD is increasing pressure on companies that provide key cultivation equipment and industry supplies. As part of its commitment to build a large and well-supplied sales channel, hydroponic supplier Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) (SGMD Profile) is in the process of making acquisition of companies that supply the hemp industry.
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.
Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.
Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.
Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.
Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry.

Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR)
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSXV:GYSR) ("Geyser Brands" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to the Company's news release dated February 11, 2019, the Company has entered into a definitive agreement (the "Agreement") in respect of the previously announced acquisition of Solace Management Group Inc. ("Solace"), a private corporation existing under the laws of British Columbia (the "Proposed Transaction").
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) is a consumer healthcare company that builds and markets some of the world's most loved cannabis products and brands in the nutraceutical, cosmetics, food and beverage and pet sectors. Using its proprietary nanotechnology formulation, the company delivers creams, beverages, baked goods and tincture formulations with superior bioavailability and water solubility.
The efficacy of most hemp?products is restricted as the insoluble nature of the molecules prevents most of the product from permeating the skin or entering the body system. Geyser Brands solves this insolubility problem with an advanced delivery system that quickly and efficiently transports therapeutic agents directly to the bloodstream for maximum absorbency.
Made with all-natural materials, NanoFusion technology offers an array of advantages: enhances penetration for deeper skin penetration; improves the transport of active ingredients for site-specific targeting; delivers active ingredients across cell membranes for release within the cell; provides longer shelf-life and stability of molecules.
Geyser Brands operates a 7,000-square-foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where its initial cannabis cultivation generated the first revenues out of the company's cultivation license granted in October 2018. Geyser Brands is approved as a licensed producer in compliance with Health Canada standards, which allows the company to pursue its processing and sales license. Obtaining this license will enable the company to extend its products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and directly to the consumer medical market.
Geyser Brands's integrated production chain and formulation lab develops innovative products using high-quality hemp and CBD for healthy lifestyle brands while its R&D lab produces product formulations designed to enhance bio-availability of hemp and CBD and shelf stability while maintaining all-natural ingredients and ensuring premium quality.
Geyser Brands will continue to seek opportunities to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health-related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.
Among the brand formulations in Geyser Brand's portfolio are:
- Apothecary all-natural Hemp Terpene Pain Cream with optimal skin permeation
- Prohibition Cold Brew Mocha designed with water soluble hemp molecules
- Apothecary health products created to deliver fast-acting and high bioavailability in a spray formulation
- Baked hemp infused pet products, designed to alleviate anxiety and pain, created with NanoFusion for dosage control
Since 2014, Geyser Brands' CEO and Co-Founder Andreas Thatcher has been a principal at Rhizome Group, an entertainment company focused on building media IP through creative and market development. He previously was a founding partner at Rhizome Capital LLC, a U.S.-based media?investment?company specializing in marketing and distribution financing, and worked in the Investment Banking industry in?London and Toronto.

CFO Barry McKnight obtained his bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia and is a Chartered Professional Accountant and?Certified Management Accountant registered in British Columbia. McKnight has over 20 years of experience as the principal of Barry D. McKnight Inc. He formerly was also a director of Indigo Sky Capital Corp. and has been the CFO and a director of the Company since 2016 and Corporate?Secretary of the Company since 2017.
Geyser Brands's Co-Founder Brad Kersch brings a strong business background with over 20 years of experience in?successful startups and working?with Fortune 500 companies. He spent his early years in the advertising and?marketing field and went on to form Hyperware, a clothing?company that sold branded clothing to retailers across Canada?before selling to clothing giant Ocean Pacific (OP). Kersch?became the president of Shoreline Studios, Canada's largest and?oldest?studio for film and TV. In 2014 he started Solace Management Group, a hemp product company focused on pet, cosmeceutical, and nutraceutical markets. As of February 2019, Geyser Brands signed a non-binding LOI to acquire Solace Management. Upon completing the proposed Solace acquisition, Geyser Brands intends to launch into the execution phase of its plan — to take its brands global through retail and digital direct-to-consumer experiences, launching its hemp-infused cannabis brands and products in the U.S., European Union, and Asia, and its CBD-infused line of products in jurisdictions where the therapeutic ingredient is legal.
Kuldip Gill, head of Geyser Brands' R&D program, has more than 35 years of experience in the cannabis industry.

INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB)
INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB), an immunology company focused on developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, announced today that David Moss, the Company’s co-founder and CFO, will present at the 9th Annual LD Micro Invitational. The event is being held at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Bel-Air, California, on June 4-5, 2019.
INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) is a diversified clinical-stage immunology company developing novel therapies that target distinct parts of a patient's innate immune system to fight disease. Drug candidates INKmune™ and INB03 may be used to treat cancer while XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation as a cause of Alzheimer's disease. INmune Bio's product platforms utilize a precision therapy approach to promote the body's innate immune response to treat unsolved problems in medicine.
INmune Bio is the first biotechnology company to close an initial public offering (IPO) in 2019 and commence trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The company also received a "Part the Cloud" award from the Alzheimer's Association in 2018 which included a $1 million grant to advance INmune Bio's XPro1595 drug candidate.
INmune Bio's product pipeline targets three segments of concern:
- Alzheimer's disease/dementia claims 5.5 million patients in the United States. INmune Bio views Alzheimer's as an immunologic disease which changes the drug discovery process, changes the way clinical trials are designed, and may provide hope for patients and caregivers.
- Cancer residual disease which is expected to generate more than 1.7 million new cases yearly with an estimated 609,640 fatalities. INMB believe that converting resting Natural Killer ("NK") cells to primed NK cells, which kill cancerous cells on contact, is an important therapeutic strategy to help clear residual disease.
- Resistance to immunotherapy. By preventing the proliferation and function of cells that resist immunotherapy, patients should have a stronger immune response to cancer cells and may respond better to other cancer treatments including immunotherapy and live longer.
INmune Bio Drug Candidates and Clinical Programs
INKmune is a biologic delivery system that primes a patient's resting NK cells to kill cancer. INKmune targets residual disease for patients that have completed initial cancer therapy (surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy) and have a low burden of disease with a high risk of relapse.
In late 2019, INKmune will start enrolling patients in a phase I/II trial for women with relapsed refractory ovarian cancer. In many patients, cancer relapse after seemingly effective cancer therapy is due to a failure of the patients own NK cells to eliminate minimal residual disease ("MRD").
Using a novel mechanism of action and a precision medicine approach, INKmune therapy should enhance NK cells' ability to eliminate residual disease.
INB03 is a checkpoint inhibitor that targets myeloid derived suppressor cells ("MDSC") which can produce an immunosuppressive shield that prevents a patient's own immune system from attacking the cancer. INmune Bio is currently completing a monotherapy INB03 phase I trial in patients with advanced solid tumors. The INB03 program will transition into a combination therapy clinical program in the summer of 2019 to prepare for a phase II trial in patients resistant to checkpoint inhibitors due to increased MDSC.
Treatment with INB03 should eliminate MDSC in the tumor microenvironment to allow checkpoint inhibitors to be therapeutically effective.
XPro1595 targets the microglial immune cells of the brain that are activated in many Alzheimer's disease patients. These microglial cells are a cause of neuroinflammation that can kill nerve cells and promote synaptic dysfunction – the cause of dementia in Alzheimer's.
The three-month, phase I trial is expected to enroll 18 patients in summer of 2019. It is designed to measure traditional and novel biomarkers of inflammation in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease who have neuroinflammation. The trial is supported by a $1 million "Part the Cloud" grant from the Alzheimer's Association. Inflammation, especially chronic inflammation, is being recognized as an important part of the pathology of many diseases including cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. RJ Tesi, M.D., INmune Bio co-founder, CEO and acting chief medical officer, has been a licensed physician since 1982 and a Fellow of the American College of Surgery since 1991. He received his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in 1982 and has served many roles in several development-stage biotech companies focused on treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, hematologic malignancies, and other inflammatory diseases.
CFO David J. Moss co-founder, has been with the company since its formation in September 2015. He holds an MBA from Rice University and a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of California, San Diego. Moss has founded, funded and taken public various companies in a variety of industries since 1995.
Mark Lowdell, Ph.D. co-founder, has served as the chief scientific officer and chief manufacturing officer at INmune Bio since the company's formation. He is a professor of cell and tissue therapy at University College London where he has led a translational immunotherapy group since 1994. He has also been a director of cellular therapy at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. He received his Ph.D. in clinical immunology from London Hospital Medical College, University of London in 1992 and is a qualified immunopathologist.
Christopher J. Barnum is director of neuroscience at INmune Bio. Barnum is a neuroimmunologist with broad expertise across neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases holding multiple positions in academic and industry. His focus has been on translating inflammatory therapies into clinical treatments for neurologic diseases using a biomarker-directed approach. Barnum's research has been supported by the NIH, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and the Alzheimer's Association. He received his Ph.D. in neuroscience from Binghamton University.
INmune Bio Inc. (OTC: INMB), closed the day's trading session at $10.59, off by 1.95%, on 8,434 volume with 76 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 18,106 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $7.00/$11.50.

California’s legalized adult-use recreational marijuana market opened for business January 1, 2018. The state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control is responsible for regulating all commercial activities in the state including cultivation, distribution and transportation. Moving cannabis products in the California marketplace is extremely challenging due to municipal and state laws and regulations, which can differ among cities and counties. Since cannabis remains illegal under federal law, Department of Transportation regulated companies are barred from participating in the market, which means companies looking to excel in the sector must hold a state-issued distributor license from the Bureau of Cannabis Control.
TransCanna has already entered into an Intellectual Property Rights and Royalty Agreement for the Track & Trace software platform required by the state of California. TCM Distribution, the operating company managed by TransCanna, has received a transportation and distribution permit from the city of Adelanto and a temporary transportation and distribution permit from the state of California. TransCanna has also executed a land lease to build a 10,000-square-foot transportation and distribution facility in Adelanto.
TransCanna is strategically creating a distribution network throughout California that places its facilities no further than a three-hour drive from most any client. The company is in the process of leasing or purchasing properly licensed and permitted warehouses strategically located throughout California along with new secure trucks, sprinter vans and/or armored vehicles.
TransCanna plans to create its own portfolio of branded products for the cannabis and hemp sectors. The company’s management team intends to translate the skills, knowledge and experience gained from a combined 60 years of branding and marketing experience in the music, professional sports and alcohol industries into TransCanna and the cannabis industry.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX)
Gene therapy could potentially advance the creation and delivery of effective cancer treatments in the years to come. Various companies are leading the way, and pioneers such as Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) are pushing for the introduction of innovative and targeted therapies that have the potential to help patients with various malignancies.
Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.
Research and Development
Genprex holds a portfolio of 30 issued and two pending patents covering its technologies and targeted molecular therapies. The company’s research and development program is focused on identifying and developing leading-edge gene therapies that can be used alone or in combination with other therapies for treatment of cancer.
Genprex’s initial product candidate is Oncoprex™, an immunogene therapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Oncoprex works by interrupting cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis (or programmed cell death) in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.
Preclinical research is being conducted with the goal of developing Oncoprex to be administered with targeted therapies in other solid tumors, and with immunotherapies in NSCLC and other solid tumors. In addition, Genprex has conducted and plans to continue research into other tumor suppressor genes associated with chromosome 3p21.3, as well as other potential applications of the company’s immunogene therapy platform.
Genprex is currently conducting the second phase of a phase I/II clinical trial at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The company plans to expand its clinical program by adding a new clinical study evaluating Oncoprex™ in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor for treatment of Stage IV or recurrent NSCLC. In research presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., Genprex’s collaborators showed that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 checkpoint inhibition has a significantly greater anti-tumor effect in lung cancer than either agent alone. The research also shows that TUSC2 in combination with PD-1 blockade has synergistic activity in upregulating natural killer (NK) cells, correlating with prolonged survival in mice.
TUSC2 (Tumor Suppressor Candidate 2) is a tumor suppressor gene that is absent or deficient in cancer cells of many different cancer types.
Genprex technologies seek to bridge a critical gap by combining with targeted therapies and immunotherapies to provide treatments to large patient populations who would otherwise not be candidates for those therapies or who have become resistant to them. Genprex technologies are being developed to overcome genomic limitations which are inherent in targeted therapies and immunotherapies in order to provide new treatment solutions to large cancer populations, such as those with lung cancer.
Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for about 85 percent of all lung cancers, according to the American Cancer Society (“ACS”). Despite radical advances in drug development and novel therapeutic standards, survival for late stage lung cancer has not improved significantly in the past 25 years.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer J. Rodney Varner, JD, is a co-founder of Genprex and has served in these roles since August 2012. He has more than 35 years of legal experience with large and small law firms and as outside general counsel of a Nasdaq-listed company. Varner has served as counsel in company formation, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, other business transactions, protection of trade secrets and other intellectual property, real estate, and business litigation. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Court and the U.S. Tax Court.
Julien L. Pham, M.D., MPH, is president and chief operating officer of Genprex. In March 2013, Dr. Pham co-founded RubiconMD, a healthcare IT company that connects primary care providers to specialists for additional guidance and opinions on medical cases and served as its chief medical officer. He has served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and is a board-certified internal medicine doctor and nephrologist.
Ryan M. Confer, MS, has served as Genprex chief financial officer since September 2016. Confer has more than 10 years of executive experience in planning, launching, developing, and growing emerging technology companies and has served in the chief operating and chief financial roles for non-profit and for-profit entities since 2008.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.
Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG)
Sharing Services Global Corporation (OTCQB: SHRG) is utilizing its Blue Ocean Strategy in the direct-selling industry as it prepares to follow up on success in the United States with entry into Canada. The company plans to build on its recent success through its Elepreneur subsidiary and an expanded focus on additional international markets.
Sharing Services Global Corporation (SHRG), headquartered in Plano, Texas, is a diversified holdings company focused on reshaping how entrepreneurs succeed today. Sharing Services Inc. owns, operates or controls an interest in a variety of companies specializing in the direct selling industry that either sell products to the consumer directly through independent representatives or offer services that range from health and wellness, energy, technology, insurance services, training, media and travel benefits. SHRG has created the “Blue Ocean Strategy,” which melds three keys together to implement the company’s vision. These keys include elevating home-based entrepreneurs, known as “Elepreneurs,” utilizing the direct selling channel to generate 100 percent organic growth.
Sharing Services Inc. subsidiaries include:
- A growing international network of home-based entrepreneurs, called “Elepreneurs”
- Growing selection of health and wellness products dedicated to elevating the well-being of all people
- Insurance from auto, home and life to health benefit discounts and health insurance that help families elevate their options
- Wholesale travel and payment programs with travel concierges that empower more families to go on vacation
- Live seminars and training events – from Vacationars™ to EduTainment – that elevate the skills and knowledge of entrepreneurs around the world
- Unique compensation and reward programs crafted to help entrepreneurs elevate their health, wealth and happiness
Sharing Services recently expanded its corporate footprint by moving to a 10,000 square foot facility in Plano, Texas, that offers room to expand as the company grows and its subsidiaries flourish. The larger corporate locale provides space for a growing customer service department, product fulfillment, opportunity and training rooms, as well as a video production suite.
“The opportunity to expand to the rest of this new building over the course of the next six to 12 months ensures we won’t have to move again anytime soon,” Sharing Services Inc. Chairman Robert Oblon said. “We are on track for very significant growth here in the U.S., as well as upcoming international expansion, so this move is in preparation for what’s in front of us.”
The company recently signed a joint venture agreement with Health Wealth & Happiness Limited (“HWH”) to expand its “Elepreneurs” brand and market its products throughout Asia. The newly formed company will be named “Elepreneurs Asia Limited” and will have marketing and sales rights to China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Papua, New Guinea. A soft launch of the Elepreneur program is scheduled sometime later in 2018 with HWH CEP Fai Chan and his team leading the effort. Formed in Hong Kong, Health Wealth & Happiness Limited is dedicated to working with visionary partners like Sharing Services Inc. to deliver the best products and services to improve the well-being of consumers.
Nearly 1,000 people attended Sharing Services Global Corporation ’s first “Elepreneur Happiness Convention,” held March 2-3, 2018, in Dallas, Texas. Attendees arrived from several countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Singapore and Hong Kong. Keynote speakers included several internationally known motivational leaders – Shawn Achor, Sandra Yancey, John Fleming and Les Brown – who provided exceptional material and inspirational discussion points.
“The enthusiasm of our attendees and the early success that we are experiencing is incredible considering our growth has been 100 percent organic, with almost no marketing from the company,” Oblon said. “I’m speechless by the dedication of our Elepreneur leaders and their entire teams, as they share our incredible line of products that have helped so many people.”
Sharing Services and its management team plan to travel the U.S. to hold several mini conferences to expand on the messages presented at its Happiness Convention that focus on helping people become “healthier, happier and wealthier.” Details of the company’s aggressive global expansion initiatives are soon to be announced, Oblon said.
The law firm of Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP has been retained as outside corporate counsel for all general business matters. The Dallas-based law firm will represent Sharing Services Global Corporation , and its subsidiaries as the company utilizes the direct selling channel for a significant component of its overall growth strategy.
John “JT” Thatchwas appointed president and chief executive officer of Sharing Services Global Corporation , at a March 1, 2018, annual shareholder meeting. Thatch has successfully started, owned and operated several sized businesses in various industries. His experience with corporate growth, acquisitions, financing and negotiation in fast-paced and flexible environments will significantly assist Sharing Services Inc. as the company aims to expand and increase revenues.
