A mineral exploration company, Great Bear Resources Ltd. engages in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in Canada. It holds interests in the Dixie property, located about a 15 minutes' drive along Highway 105 from downtown Red Lake, Ontario. The Red Lake mining district has produced more than 30,000,000 ounces of gold. It is one of the premier mining districts in Canada. Incorporated in 2001, Great Bear Resources is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The Dixie property encompasses a drill and geophysically defined 10 kilometer gold mineralized structure similar to that hosting other producing gold mines in the district. At the Dixie Project, gold mineralization is confirmed along a 2.3 km strike of a 10 km target. The system at Dixie has a high-grade gold zone. It includes recent intervals of 16.35 meters of 26.91 g/t gold and 7.00 meters of 68.76 g/t gold and is open along strike and at depth.
Furthermore, Great Bear Resources is earning a 100 percent royalty-free interest in the West Madsen, Pakwash, Dedee and Sobel properties. These properties encompass regionally significant gold-controlling structures and prospective geology. The West Madsen project comprises two claims blocks; the easternmost (Block A) is now directly contiguous to Pure Gold Mining’s Madsen property. Each block is about six kilometers by three kilometers in size, for a total area of 3,860 hectares.
Great Bear Resources has reported the discovery of a new gold control within its Dixie Limb Zone (DL) target associated with thickened and higher-grade gold mineralization. The new discovery enhances the DL as a major potential host of high-grade gold. The DL is the original gold discovery at the Dixie project, made by Teck Resources. It is roughly 200 meters to the north of, and is sub-parallel to, Great Bear's 2018 high-grade gold discovery at the Hinge Zone (DHZ).
This week, Great Bear Resources reported numerous gold discoveries along 3.2 kilometers strike length of the roughly 18 kilometer long LP Fault target at its 100 percent owned Dixie project in the Red Lake district of Ontario. Drilling at the new "Auro" Zone, a 2.6 km step-out from Bear-Rimini, intersected 101.71 g/t Gold over 1.50 m within 42.00 m of 5.28 g/t Gold at 80 m depth.

Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. (PEYUF)
Streetwise Reports, Finance Recorder, Whale Wisdom, Stock2Own, Street Insider, TeleTrader, Dividend Investor, Market Screener, GuruFocus, Stockhouse, Wallet Investor, TradingView, and Morningstar reported earlier on Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. (PEYUF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGLs) in Deep Basin, Alberta. The Company is the 6th largest natural gas producer in Canada. It owns/operates gas plants and operates 99 percent of production. It has a 99 percent Working Interest (WI) in 9 processing facilities. Peyto lists on the OTC Markets.
The company previously went by the name Peyto Energy Trust. It changed its corporate name to Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. in January of 2011. Incorporated in 1997, the Company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
Peyto Exploration & Development’s gas and NGLs are made from all natural, decomposed, organic materials. The Company’s belief is that by maintaining low cash costs over the entire production life it ensures returns are maximized regardless of commodity price volatility. As of December 31, 2018, Peyto had a total proved plus probable reserves of 803 million barrels of oil equivalent.
The Company’s strategy is to integrate the entire oil and gas value chain. It is working to become an integrated energy business. This includes exploration and development, production and processing, storage and marketing, and midstream and power generation.
Moreover, Peyto’s strategy is to invest for profit, not growth. The Company’s track record of generating $0.40 of earnings for every dollar of capital invested is one of the highest in the industry. It has driven total supply cost down 36 percent in the last five years. This is chiefly through capital cost improvements. This has preserved the Company’s approximately 35 percent profit margin.
Recently, Peyto Exploration & Development confirmed that the monthly dividend with respect to August 2019 of $0.02 per common share is to be paid on September 13, 2019, for shareholders of record on August 31, 2019. The ex-dividend date is August 29, 2019.

RGS Energy (RGSE) is exiting its mainland residential solar business to focus on the POWERHOUSE™ in-roof shingle market. The Company is concentrating its efforts and resources on what it believes is a significant opportunity with its POWERHOUSE™ solar shingle. This is because of the State of California’s mandate that all new homes built in 2020 include a solar installation. POWERHOUSE™ is a trademark of The Dow Chemical Company, used under license.
RGSE believes the POWERHOUSE™ solar shingle has compelling competitive advantages. These include an aesthetically appealing low profile, with power efficiency and cost competitive to traditional rack-n-mount solar.
The POWERHOUSE 3.0 Solar Shingles operate as a roof and solar product. They are installed directly onto the roof deck along with standard asphalt roofing shingles.

The Company holds a 3 percent royalty in the Moss Mine in Arizona, an interest in the Bruner gold project in Nevada, and a 100 percent interest in the Windy Peak and Vernal projects in Nevada. The Moss Mine Project is within the historic Oatman District, 10 miles east of Bullhead City, Arizona and roughly 70 miles southeast of Las Vegas. Northern Vertex Mining Corp. is the owner of the Moss Mine. The Moss Mine entered commercial production as of the beginning of September 2018.
The Vernal gold project is in its early stage. This property is approximately 140 miles east-southeast of Reno, Nevada, on the west side of the Shoshone Mountains. This property comprises 12 unpatented mining claims (240 acres).

The Bruner and Vernal gold projects are in Nevada's Walker Lane, which hosts many major deposits. These include the Goldfield (more than 5 million ounces of post production and current reserves) and the Comstock (more than 8 million ounces).
Recently, Patriot Gold announced that it completed an initial phase of drilling exploration at the Windy Peak Project in Churchill County, Nevada, beginning in September 2018. At present, the Windy Peak deposit is interpreted as a low-sulfidation, epithermal gold deposit positioned marginal to and likely associated with a caldera ring fracture zone.
Intersections between ring fractures and regional normal faults in the Windy Peak Project area are especially favorable exploration targets. They offer the unique combination of fluid conduits and structural controls known to concentrate high-grade mineralization.

Nippon Dragon Resources, Inc. is a hybrid mining & technology enterprise listed on the OTC Markets.

Nippon is active in the exploration and development of gold resources in the Province of Quebec. Nippon’s flagship gold property is Rocmec 1. Nippon Dragon Resources is headquartered in Brossard, Quebec.
The Company has its Thermal Fragmentation mining method. This mining method uses heat to 'spall' high-grade veins. This considerably lessens the use of explosives. The method only extracts the mineralized ore with minimal dilution. The extraction process allows thermal fragmentation with an accuracy of 2 cm to quickly extract any type of hard rock up to 110 cm wide. The thermal unit can be set up to extract a specific corridor. Thermal Fragmentation could be used as a stand-alone method or as a first-rate complement to any conventional hard rock mining operation.
In June of last year, Nippon Dragon Resources announced that following the sale of a Thermal Fragmentation Unit to its client, Metalfer Mining D.O.O, the Unit was shipped, received, inspected by border authorities and released to the client. Nippon’s technical team performed its customary four week orientation, training, and implementation programme of its thermal fragmentation mining method at Metalfer’s mining site in the Majdan Mountain district of Serbia.
Nippon Dragon Resources has a strategic partnership agreement with Val d’Or Resources (VOR). This partnership agreement will enhance Nippon Dragon’s position as an industry leader with its exclusive and patented Thermal Fragmentation technology. Through the creation of a new entity, Rocmec Gold, Inc., the new partnership is anticipated to substantially expand Nippon Dragon’s reach within Canada and other important markets.
Nippon’s flagship Rocmec 1 is a fully permitted project in Quebec. The project includes a 100-meter deep, two-compartment shaft, and an 844 meters decline, allowing access to four levels (50, 90, 110 and 130 meters).

Dividend Investor, Stockwatch, Capital Cube, Cardinal Weekly, Investors Hangout, Insider Mole, Stockopedia, Penny Stock Hub, Stockhouse, InvestorsHub, Wallmine, OTC Markets, Barchart, MarketWatch, and 4-Traders reported earlier on Wize Pharma, Inc. (WIZP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Wize Pharma, Inc. focuses on the treatment of ophthalmic disorders. This includes dry eye syndrome (DES). The OTCQB-listed Company previously went by the name Star Night Technologies Ltd. It changed its corporate name to Wize Pharma, Inc. in July of 2015. A clinical-stage biopharmaceutical enterprise, the Company is headquartered in Hod Hasharon, Israel.
Wize Pharma has in-licensed certain rights to purchase, market, sell, and distribute a formula named LO2A. This is a drug developed for the treatment of DES, and other ophthalmological illnesses, including conjunctivochalasis (CCH) and Sjögren's Syndrome. Currently, LO2A is registered and marketed by its inventor in Germany and Switzerland for the treatment of DES, in Hungary for the treatment of DES and CCH, and in the Netherlands for the treatment of DES and Sjögren's Syndrome.
Wize Pharma is now conducting a Phase II trial of LO2A for patients with CCH and a Phase IV study for LO2A for DES in patients with Sjögren's. The Company announced in March of last year that it enrolled the initial patient in its Phase IV clinical trial in Israel for LO2A in the symptomatic treatment of dry eye syndrome (DES) in patients with Sjögren's syndrome. This randomized, double-masked study is evaluating LO2A versus Alcon's Systane® Ultra UD, an over-the-counter (OTC) lubricant eye drop product used to relieve dry and irritated eyes.
The design of the study (in addition to meeting marketing approval requirements in Israel) is to support Wize Pharma’s clinical approval pathway for LO2A for the treatment of DES in patients with Sjögren's in other markets including the U.S., China, and Ukraine. LO2A is already approved in Israel for the treatment of DES.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF), a company dedicated to producing organic cannabis using craft farming techniques, was one of the presenters at the Cannabis Investor Conference held by New West Partners on August 22, 2019, in San Francisco, California (http://nnw.fm/YY6Mv). Based in Hamilton, Ontario, The Green Organic Dutchman is committed to become a global leader in the delivery of premium-quality cannabis in compliance with the provisions of ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
CFN Media Group ("CFN Media"), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry announces publication of an article discussing The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) and how the company is penetrating the European cannabis market with the launch of Supreme Heights. Also today, the company was highlighted in a publication from Motley Fool, examining how Canada officially legalized dried cannabis flower, oils, and sprays for recreational use last year. However, there were many other marijuana products left off the table. Most notably excluded were cannabinoid-based edibles, beverages, topicals, and concentrates. Additionally, the company was featured today in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF), is committed to providing premium brands and products that reflect the company’s knowledgeable customers, passionate employees, and culture of innovation. Supreme Cannabis’ mission is to grow the world’s best cannabis and become a leader in the global industry. The company calls its Toronto Venture Exchange stock symbol FIRE “a testament to our passion for cannabis and our obsession with quality.”
Supreme Cannabis believes the world is ready to follow Canada’s lead by ending the 100-year cannabis prohibition and, as Canada’s only coast-to-coast premium cannabis producer, the company sees itself at the center of this global shift.
In August 2018, Supreme Cannabis uplisted its shares to the to OTCQX market in the U.S., where the company trades under the ticker symbol SPRWF. The following month Supreme reported record Q4 revenues of CAD$3.55 million, a 71-percent increase over the previous quarter. Supreme Cannabis also recorded revenue of CAD$8.85 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, placing it among publicly traded Canadian cannabis companies with the highest reported revenue in their first four quarters of sales.
“As a result of the successful execution of our strategy, we have generated significant revenue growth both for the quarter and the year-end period,” Supreme Cannabis CEO Navdeep Dhaliwal stated in a news release. “We look forward to building on this growth as we expand domestically and internationally.”
The company’s growth strategy includes key industry agreements, such as its CAD$12 million supply agreement with Tilray Inc. (OTC: TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution. The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.
Another key component is the company’s wholly owned 7ACRES subsidiary. The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.05, up 1.9417%, on 480,637 volume with 367 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 384,050 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.850000023/$2.03999996.

HTC will provide “local-to-grower” drying-to-biomass storage capability and transportation of dried biomass to an HTC, location to be determined, future US based, extraction facility. HTC is also in negotiation with a 60,000-acre, recognized Canadian farm leader, who is a significant hemp biomass producer, for a similar hemp biomass tolling contract.
Large users of ethanol and solvents for plant oil extraction demand reduced capital and operating costs. HTC’s re3™ (reclaim, recycle, reuse) technology can save up to 30% of the required fluid costs. The increasing cost of new extraction ethanol, combined with the cost of used ethanol disposal, creates a unique opportunity whereby the re3™ technology will create cost savings, while meeting environmental responsibilities.
The growth of ethanol and CO2 used in CBD production has created a new demand for reliable commercial scale ethanol reclaimer systems. The Delta Purification® ethanol system meets this new demand.
Sales and Offtake Agreements
HTC intends to leverage its relationship with its related entity, Purely Canada Foods™, to provide sales and distribution for its Ingredient CBD market under the brand of Purely Canada Hemp™, Purely Canada CBD™, Purely Canada Cannabinoids™. Purely Canada Hemp™ will develop risk managed multi-year ingredient supply contracts with its existing and new Global Food, Beverage and Animal Food Industry Customers.
HTC has focused the Canadian implementation of its BOOM (build, own, operate and maintain) extraction tolling strategy on a location near Regina, Saskatchewan. HTC is currently constructing a 19,000-square-foot GMP Euro compliant extraction tolling facility on six acres of land that will include biomass processing, extraction, implementation of DeltaSolv™ technologies and Delta Purification® systems, distillate and refining equipment, laboratory quality control and testing operations, and on-site office and admin facilities.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech’s (OTCQB: ETST) wholly owned subsidiary Earth Science Pharma Inc. is dedicated to research, with a goal of eradicating sexually transmitted infections (“STIs”). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/NWe0C.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) today announces its placement in an editorial published by NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company for private and public entities. To view the full publication, titled “Innovative Drug-Delivery Systems Benefit Patients and Businesses,” visit: http://nnw.fm/4P2sn.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary DehydraTECH™ 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 DehydraTECH 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 and the United States. Lexaria has also developed its own hmep-oil 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™, TurboCBD™ and ChargD+™.
Virtually unique across both the hemp and the cannabis industries, Lexaria has successfully entered into a R&D and product development partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Only a small handful of hemp or cannabis-related companies have achieved formal relationships with Fortune 500 industry leaders, demonstrating the wide applicability of Lexaria’s technology.
In June 2019, building on its original 2015 independent, third-party laboratory in vitro lab experiments, which confirmed the absorption levels of cannabidiol (“CBD”) into human intestinal cells rose by 499% through the utilization of the DehydraTECH technology, Lexaria completed a series of animal studies using an enhanced formulation of its DehydraTECH technology. The results of the animal studies using the enhanced DehydraTECH formulation showed an increase of CBD delivery into the blood when compared to generic industry MCT coconut-oil formulations by 811%. In addition, the animal studies also showed delivery of 1,937% more CBD into animal brain tissue after 8 hours using the enhanced DehydraTECH technology when compared to generic industry MCT coconut-oil formulations.
Lexaria also has completed the first phases of its collaborative research program with the Canadian government’s National Research Council (the “NRC”) under which several studies were designed to optimize Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology, enabling delivery of API’s within foods, beverages, capsules and other ingestible formats. These studies investigated the lipophilic active agent classes including cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine using advanced analytical techniques, including mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance testing, with the results of the studies confirming that Lexaria’s DehydraTECH technology did not create any covalent-bonded new molecular entity (“NME”). Whenever an NME is created, regulatory bodies such as FDA and Health Canada routinely require extensive health, safety and efficacy studies prior to that product’s release into the marketplace. That the NRC program failed to find evidence of an NME suggests products utilizing the DehydraTECH technology may require a less burdensome regulatory pathway.
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. In August 2019, Lexaria was issued its cannabis research and development licence from Health Canada which will allow Lexaria to continue its further investigations in-house of its DehydraTECH technology in connection with cannabinoids, along with ongoing work with vitamins, NSAIDs, PDE5-inhibitors, nicotine and other molecules.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong and growing intellectual property portfolio. As of the August 2019, the company’s patent portfolio includes ~60 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world; and 16 patents granted to date. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the U.S. and internationally by the end of 2019 and beyond. Some of its more recent areas of investigation have included human hormones and erectile dysfunction substances, among others. Lexaria’s granted patent portfolio related to cannabinoid delivery is one of the largest in the world.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology to third-partners and has signed licensing agreements with start-up companies as well as with a Fortune 100 industry leader. 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 Thursday's trading session at $0.68, up 5.4264%, on 73,457 volume with 80 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 74,945 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.600000023/$2.20000004.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF)
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV:PQE; OTC:PQEFF; FSE: PQCF), a fully integrated surface oil sands mining oil company with patented - proprietary technology, is pleased to announce further progress resulting from the recent plant re-engineering project designed to bring production back online.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil sands exploration and production on mineral leases in Vernal, Utah, and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 2,500-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) System.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ. PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy Chairman Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry.
“API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.2058, up 0.887298%, on 163,409 volume with 42 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 221,945 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.112099997/$1.21765995.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOAD)
Marijuana Company of America (OTCQB: MCOA, MCOAD), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, today announced that the company began trading on a split-adjusted basis, on September 3, 2019. The Company announced its proposal for a 1-for-60 reverse stock split, on July 31, 2019. The common shares of the Company, which previously traded under the ticker symbol “MCOA,” began trading on a post-split basis under the symbol “MCOAD,” which will continue for a period of 20 business days after which time the “D” will be removed, and the symbol will revert back to “MCOA.”
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOAD) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities.

Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF)
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) ("Therma" or the "Company"), a progressive medical device technology company, today announces that the TherOZap™ technology under the Company's former name, The Jenex Corporation, has filed an international patent application under the PCT convention for its thermal therapy TherOZap™ and has recently entered the national phases in the US, Europe and Canada. Also today, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. Barely a month before the deadline given by the Mexican Supreme Court compelling the government to pass legalization legalizing marijuana elapses, a senator has filed a bill to end prohibition.
Therma Bright, Inc. (TSX.V: THRM) (OTC: THRBF) is a medical device technology provider focused on addressing dermatological needs in the multi-billion-dollar cosmeceutical industry. The company’s effective, non-invasive and pain-free skin care is based on proprietary technology which has received Class II medical device status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Therma Bright’s portfolio includes products, devices and treatments that have both cosmetic and medicinal or therapeutic benefits, such as for relief of pain, itch and inflammation resulting from more than 20,000 types of insect and marine life bites and stings, including bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitos, black flies and jellyfish.
The Company’s current focus is to market its products online through various social media networks, and to eventually re-establish relationships with major North American and Global retailers.
The company currently has two products on the market and another in the research and development phase:
InterceptCS™ is a thermal therapy device for the treatment and prevention of cold sores caused by the herpes simplex Type 1 virus*. Symptoms typically include sores around the mouth and lips which InterceptCS™ treats by application of controlled topical heat with no risk of burning the skin. When used at the first sign of an oncoming cold sore application of InterceptCS™ can prevent symptoms from developing. Infrared energy and light from the device penetrate the skin killing cells infected with the virus.
InterceptCS™ is available without prescription and comprises a battery powered ergonomic hand-held unit and a disposable single-use treatment activator. Therma Bright has completed prototyping of multi-use activators for InterceptCS™. The company plans to bring to market 5, 10 or 20 multi-use activations at prices that will offer customers greater value than the current single-use activator.
The other Therma Bright product currently under development is TherOZap™, a next generation thermal therapy device powered by the company’s core technology, which is approved by the FDA as a Class II medical device for the relief of the symptoms of insect bites. Therma Bright is testing a new easier-to-use prototype of the device for effectiveness against Zika virus and other diseases carried by mosquitos. Once the technology proves effective, Therma Bright intends to seek regulatory approvals and extend the prototype enhancements to a new commercial version of TherOZap™.
Therma Bright is also conducting research and development on a unique thermal therapy device that would incorporate medical grade cannabis or cannabidiol (“CDB”) sourced from hemp as a cream or gel to provide relief of back, knee and other joint pain. In preparation, the company has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary to hold any technology for use or application of cannabis. Once approvals are secured, the company plans to sell the device through licensed cannabis producers or retailers across Canada and in international markets where use of cannabis has been legalized. The company has initiated trademark and patent protection for its thermal therapy technology incorporating medical cannabis. Therma Bright has indicated it will seek an acquisition to help further development of this product.
A report by market intelligence firm Mordor Intelligence put the global cosmeceuticals market at a value of nearly US$47 billion in 2017 and projects it to be worth more than $80 billion by 2023, growing at a rate of almost 9.5 percent annually. Medical research estimates that somewhere between 20 percent and 40 percent of the population suffer occasional cold sore outbreaks. In Canada those figures would mean five to 10 million people, and in the U.S. some 40 million to 80 million, with recurring cold sores, representing a substantial potential market for Therma Bright.
Rob Fia serves as Therma Bright chairman and CEO. Fia has extensive contacts in the investment community and the financial sector as well as knowledge of various Canadian stock exchange listing processes and requirements. His 18 years in the investment business has included equity research and advising promising early stage companies on corporate finance. Therma Bright CFO Victor Hugo is a senior financial analyst at Marrelli Support Services Inc., for which he provides CFO, accounting, regulatory compliance, and management advisory services to companies listed on the TSX, TSX Venture Exchange and other Canadian and US exchanges.
**Based on double blind placebo study, the InterceptCS™ is approved by Health Canada for the claim “For prevention of cold sores when used within 3 hours of the onset of the prodrome.” The InterceptCS™ is not approved by the United States FDA or any claim of clinical indication, clinical efficacy, and/or cure or prevention of disease.
Therma Bright, Inc. (OTC: THRBF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.022, even for the day, on 10,000 volume. The average volume for the last 3 months is 153 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.009899999/$0.028999999.

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, is pleased to announce that R.J. Tesi, M.D., the Company’s Co-founder and CEO, is scheduled to present at the H.C. Wainwright 21st Annual Healthcare Conference in New York City to introduce the NeuLiv™ program for treatment of NASH. Live webcast: https://inmunebio.com/index.php/en/investors-2/ir-events Date: Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Time: 2:10 p.m. – 2:35 p.m. Eastern Time
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.

Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX)
Clinical-stage gene therapy company Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX) on Tuesday issued an update regarding its clinical development programs, manufacturing and strategy for bringing its Oncoprex(TM) immunogene therapy to market. To view the full press releases, visit: http://nnw.fm/AoZ8Q and http://nnw.fm/HIRm0. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how, despite huge public awareness and a decrease in smoking, lung cancer remains one of the most common types of cancer and is a major killer in many countries. An estimated 2.09 million people were affected by lung cancer worldwide in 2018, and 1.76 million of them died. While prevention has improved, survival rates remain low once the disease takes root. To view the full publication, titled “Gene Therapy Treatments Offer Hope for Cancer Patients,” visit: http://nnw.fm/k9gI7.
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. Confer has also served as an international business development consultant for the University of Texas at Austin’s IC2 Institute, where he focused on evaluating the commercialization potential of nascent technologies in domestic and international markets applicable to technology incubator programs associated with the University. Confer holds a BS in finance and legal studies from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and an MS in technology commercialization from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.
Jan Stevens, RN, is vice president of Clinical Operations. Stevens has nearly 20 years of comprehensive clinical operations experience in the biopharma industry and a specialization in early-to-late stage oncology companies. Stevens joined the company to help support the various clinical development programs for Oncoprex™.
Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.87, off by 3.3333%, on 9,957 volume with 54 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 40,720 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.640999972/$2.55999994.
