The Phase 1 clinical trial is now in progress. Oncolix is based in Houston, Texas. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Oncolix believes Prolanta™ has the opportunity to treat a broad spectrum of human cancers.

Prolanta™ is a prolactin receptor antagonist (or blocker).  Prolanta™ has demonstrated efficacy in xenograft models through an innovative mechanism of action, autophagy. There is strong preclinical evidence Prolanta™ may be effective in breast, prostate, and other cancers, in addition to ovarian cancer.  

Prolanta™ is undergoing evaluation in an open-label dose escalation Phase 1 clinical trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer. Patients are divided into three dosing groups (cohorts). Each sequential cohort will evaluate a higher dose of Prolanta™.

In the present Phase 1 dose-escalation safety trial for the treatment of ovarian cancer, so far there have been no observed serious adverse events. Additionally, there have been no dose-limiting toxicities. The FDA has approved the designation of Prolanta™ as an Orphan Drug for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Dakota Territory Resource Corp. (DTRC)

OTC Markets Group, Zacks, Uptick Newswire, Innovative Marketing, and UltimatePennyStock reported earlier on Dakota Territory Resource Corp. (DTRC), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Dakota Territory Resource Corp.’s focus is on the acquisition and responsible exploration and development of high caliber gold properties in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The Company maintains 100 percent ownership of three mineral properties. These include the Blind Gold, City Creek, and Homestake Paleoplacer Properties. All of these are in the heart of the Homestake District. Dakota Territory Resource is based in Reno, Nevada. The Company’s shares trade on the OTCQB.

The Blind Gold Property is Dakota Territory Resource’s flagship property. The Property is a target for Tertiary-aged and Iron-formation gold mineralization.

The Blind Gold Property is approximately four miles northwest and on structural trend with the historic Homestake Gold Mine. The Homestake Gold Mine produced about 40 million ounces of gold through its 125-year production history. It is the largest iron-formation-hosted gold deposit globally.

The Company’s plan is to continue its sampling program along trend of the zone of high grade gold mineralization identified by the first pass surface sampling program conducted on its 100 percent owned Blind Gold Property. The program identified a zone of high-grade gold mineralization in the Mississippian-age Pahasapa Limestone on the surface, with a peak gold assay value of 9.44 grams per tonne. Dakota is preparing for drilling in the Homestake Gold District of South Dakota.

The Company’s City Creek Property is a target for Homestake iron-formation gold mineralization. City Creek consists of 21 unpatented lode mining claims. These are situated one-mile northeast of the Homestake Open Cut and one-mile northwest of the City of Deadwood.

The Homestake Paleoplacer Property consists of 13 unpatented lode mining claims. These are located one-mile north of the Homestake Open Cut. Dakota Territory Resource based the acquisition of its Black Hills property position on over 44 years of combined mining and exploration experience in the Homestake District.

In April of 2017, Dakota Territory Resource announced that it entered into agreements with Trucano Novelty, Inc. to acquire a combination of surface and mineral title to 284 acres in the Homestake District of the Northern Black Hills of South Dakota. Currently, Dakota holds roughly 3,341 acres in the heart of this district. In addition, the Company’s research of historic data identified high grade gold mineralization under Dakota’s earlier acquired property at Maitland.

The Homestake District has a prolific production history. However, this area is largely underexplored. Almost all mines in the District were discovered by virtue of the fact that the deposits were exposed at surface or were discovered via underground exploration conducted from producing mines close by.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY).

An energy and technology enterprise, Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) centers on innovative offerings in energy efficiency for the business market. Its dedication is to enhancing businesses via responsible energy use and management. Zenergy provides its products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers. Zenergy Brands has its corporate office in Plano, Texas.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.

The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.

A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.

Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.

“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.

On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

Foresight’s innovative autonomous driving solutions are based on mature, proprietary stereoscopic image technology that uses two synchronized cameras to mimic human depth perception and produce a three-dimensional image. This 3D image can anticipate possible collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and other obstacles. The technology provides highly accurate real-time alerts about the vehicle’s surroundings while in motion. The systems are designed to improve driving safety by enabling highly accurate and reliable threat detection while ensuring the lowest rates of false alerts.

The company’s patents provide IP protection for its robust and proven proprietary stereoscopic technology, which was developed using the security technology of Foresight’s major shareholder, Magna B.S.P.

Foresight has developed three main products:

  • QuadSight™. This breakthrough detection system sets the bar for autonomous vehicle vision. It features nearly 100 percent obstacle detection with almost zero false alerts and operates optimally under all weather and lighting conditions, including darkness, rain, fog, haze and glare.

In addition, FRSX completed a pilot project with Uniti Sweden.

Studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to emphasize the dramatic reduction in accidents and injury-related crashes reported when vehicles are equipped with collision avoidance systems. A recent study by the Institute states that the rate of single-vehicle, sideswipe and head-on crashes was 11 percent lower in vehicles with the warning systems. More importantly, the study shows collision avoidance technology cut the rates of injury crashes of the same type by 21 percent.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCQB: PVOTF), based in Vancouver, Canada, is an emerging biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals that provide novel treatments for unmet healthcare needs. Pivot’s recent acquisition of BiPhasix ™ Transdermal Drug Delivery technology for the delivery of cannabinoids (CBD) to patients provides the answer for an age-old problem associated with cannabinoid-based therapies: the lack of a robust smoke-less delivery mechanism.

Research into the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based therapeutics shows that rates of absorption vary greatly between smoking cannabis to an orally-consumed product, with a difference noted even between individuals. Cannabinoids are degraded in the stomach and smoking may not appeal to patients for health or lifestyle reasons. Topical delivery, while a better alternative, has suffered from weak formulation issues. Transdermal cannabinoid delivery, on the other hand, could provide a better alternative route since it reduces side effects and bypasses other absorption issues. In addition, transdermal delivery provides the benefit of enabling patients to access a steady stream of medication over a prolonged period with fewer side effects.

Pivot Pharmaceutical’s newly created subsidiary, Pivot Green Stream Health Solutions Inc. (“Pivot Green Stream”), will focus on improving the bioavailability of cannabinoid-based and pharmaceuticals. BiPhasix™ has been tested in FDA and EMA approved human clinical trials, which have shown the delivery system enhances the bioavailability of many drugs and improves clinical outcomes. Pivot Green Stream is tasked with developing several natural health products containing cannabinoids (CBD) that can receive a Health Canada Natural Health Product (NHP) designation. This marketing method ensures a shorter development cycle and faster revenue generation opportunities.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc., which has positioned itself as a growing and crucial vertical in the cannabis industry, represents a compelling opportunity in the biotechnology field. The company’s plans include working with Licensed Producers (LP) and Licensed Dealers (LD) to bring newer therapies to patients. The company has also applied to list on the Canadian Stock Exchange (CSE).

The global medical marijuana market is expected to reach a value of $55.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing number of states and countries gaining approval for using cannabis in therapeutic applications is expected to continue driving the market forward.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals has assembled a highly experienced management team, bringing together a wealth of clinical, commercial, product development and financial experience. Among the many healthcare targets in Pivot’s pipeline are cancer supportive care, pain and inflammation, women’s sexual dysfunction, dermatology and eye disease.

Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (PVOTF), closed the day's trading session at $0.37774, up 0.52%, on 5,215 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 118,053 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.047/$2.46.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO).

Global life sciences company Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) was recently highlighted in a release by The Ohio State University detailing the university’s upcoming study regarding healthier food and beverage options. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/I3u4a.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.

The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.

Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”

Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.

The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.

Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.

This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.

The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.85, up 1.32%, on 1,255 volume with 5 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,346 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.70/$6.90.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP).

Lexaria Bioscience (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) believes that its patented technology, DehydraTECH™ has the potential to transform nicotine use by offering a delivery method that may be an effective alternative to the traditional inhalation. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/8ezsX.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, 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 both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

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 are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a 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 $1.83, up 3.05%, on 157,958 volume with 240 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 259,593 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.289/$2.54.

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight DeepMarkit Inc. (MKTDF).

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX.V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF) has set a timeline of goals for this year. They include acquiring 1,000 customers, the launch of paid slide out gamification app product Gamify and the debut of its retail conversion tool by year-end, according to its June 2018 investor presentation (http://nnw.fm/2d5Jt).

DeepMarkit Inc. (TSX-V: MKT) (OTCQB: MKTDF), based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a patent pending gamification technology company inventing new ways to engage consumers and other audiences. The Company’s proprietary promotions platform – “Gamify” – enables businesses and agencies to create branded games that incentivize consumers, thus driving sales, capturing data and generating leads. The DeepMarkit platform integrates next-gen gamification engagement mechanics with interactive advertising industry standards and powerful visuals, including 3-D images. Customers may choose from both free and paid solutions suitable for campaigns of all sizes, targeting multiple channels on the web, mobile and social media.

A team of seasoned, passionate gaming executives, led by president and CEO Darold Parken, has worked together for more than 15 years developing games and gaming systems that are still used today by some of the largest gaming companies in the world. This accomplished executive team founded Chartwell Technologies, acquired in 2011 by Amaya Gaming, which now is known as The Stars Group (Nasdaq: TSG) with a market cap of over $5 billion.

Gamify offers a selection of easily customizable gaming apps featuring a customer’s branded e-store in addition to tailored landing pages, technical support, real-time analytics, data collection and an engaging marketing campaign. Gamify’s patent-pending app comes complete with unique user incentives that draw consumers in with games and prizes, which in turn engages shoppers, turning them into buyers and building brand loyalty.

The gamification market is rapidly expanding and projected to be worth $22 billion by 2022, with a CAGR of 41 percent. DeepMarkit is the only publicly listed company focused solely on this exploding market that embraces any size of business, from the mom-and-pop shops to the blue-chip giants. DeepMarkit’s management team knows that increasing a customer’s conversion rate by a mere 1 percent has the potential to double revenue, which is why Gamify’s app and its ability to transform simple shoppers into engaged buyers is so compelling.

“Our marketing platform enables customers to build branded games that incentivize audiences, generate leads, and drive sales. Businesses need a way to stand out from the crowd,” Parken states in an investor’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97hJoRKR92k). “DeepMarkit’s gamification platform gives customers that way to stand out and it’s a way that they can afford. That’s the strength of our platform. For a relatively small amount of money, any business can create a very powerful, high quality customer engagement using gamification.”

DeepMarkit recently entered into a joint marketing agreement with ITN International (“ITN”), a global leader in trade show data capture and analytics. The agreement will enable the 1.5 million exhibitors at the 125-plus yearly events serviced by ITN to purchase a customizable campaign with prize delivery and branded games that can be used in collaboration with ITN’s lead retrieval solutions. DeepMarkit and ITN are currently integrating DeepMarkit’s patent-pending gamification platform directly into ITN’s exhibitor portal.

“We started DeepMarkit because we have a passion for games and we believe in the power of games, not just for entertainment but more importantly as a tool for business,” Parken said. “DeepMarkit is a gamification company. What we mean by that is that we create innovative ways to use games for business purposes. Games to generate customer leads, games to promote products, deliver rewards, build brand awareness and customer loyalty.”

Selected as the winner of the New Company/Product pitch competition at the Retail Global 2017 Conference held in Las Vegas, Gamify’s platform has also attracted a $1.5 million investment from Allstate International LLC in Hong Kong. The investment gives Allstate a 10 percent stake in DeepMarkit and a great opportunity to bring the Gamify platform into the burgeoning Asian gaming market.

DeepMarkit Inc. (MKTDF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0373, off by 9.90%, on 50,275 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 29,238 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0293/$0.12.
