RespireRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (RSPI)
NetworkNewsWire, Stockflare, Stockopedia, Penny Stock Hub, Wallet Investor, Simply Wall St, Marketbeat, Barchart, InvestorsHub, Marketwired, Real Investment Advice, and MarketWatch reported earlier on RespireRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (RSPI), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
RespireRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a leader in the development of medicines for respiratory disorders. These disorders include sleep apneas and drug-induced respiratory depression. The Company previously went by the name Cortex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It changed its name to RespireRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in December 2015. OTCQB-listed, RespireRx Pharmaceuticals is headquartered in Glen Rock, New Jersey.
The Company has filed greater than 400 patents in the United States and offshore, which claim composition of matter, use, formulation, dosage, and mechanism of action. Use claims include treating sleep apnea and preventing or rescuing drug-induced respiratory depression, as well as for improving memory and cognition, treating schizophrenia and other central nervous system (CNS) indications.
RespireRx’s pharmaceutical candidates in development are derived from two platforms. One platform is the class of compounds called cannabinoids. This includes, in particular, Dronabinol. Dronabinol (D9-THC, D9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is an oral capsule drug product. Dronabinol (D9-THC) is a generic, orally active cannabinoid. It is undergoing testing for clinical efficacy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Under a license agreement with the University of Illinois, RespireRx Pharmaceuticals has rights to patents claiming the use of cannabinoids for the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders. Two Phase 2 clinical trials have been completed. Both have demonstrated significant reductions in sleep apnea produced by dronabinol.
Dronabinol is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for the treatment of anorexia in AIDS patients and nausea and vomiting in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (Marinol®). It is a Schedule III drug available by prescription, with a low risk of addiction.
The other platform of medicines undergoing development by the Company is a class of proprietary compounds called ampakines. These act to enhance the actions of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate at AMPA glutamate receptor sites in the brain. A number of ampakines, in oral and injectable form, are undergoing development by RespireRx for the treatment of an array of breathing disorders.
Last month, RespireRx Pharmaceuticals announced that on September 4, 2018, it entered into a dronabinol Development and Supply Agreement with Noramco, Inc. RespireRx is developing dronabinol for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The Company believes, subject to meeting with the FDA, that dronabinol is Phase 3 ready.
Dr. Arnold Lippa, RespireRx Pharmaceuticals’ Executive Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer, said, “We are very pleased and excited to enter into this development and supply agreement with Noramco, a leading dronabinol manufacturer. There are significant FDA and DEA regulatory and manufacturing complexities surrounding the dronabinol supply chain, considered a DEA Schedule I drug as API and a Schedule III drug as a gel capsule. Through this arrangement with Noramco, we believe that we have solved not only some of our regulatory concerns, but also secured appropriate manufacturing capacity.”

PennyStocks24, SmallCap Fortunes, StockGuru, OTC Picks, Standout Stocks, FeedBlitz, SmallCapVoice, and HotOTC reported earlier on Lightwave Logic, Inc. (LWLG), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Lightwave Logic is a technology business centering on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high-speed fiber-optic data communications and telecommunications. The Company creates prototype electro-optic demonstration devices. OTCQB-listed, Lightwave Logic has its head office in Longmont, Colorado.
The Company is moving toward commercialization of next generation photonic devices employing its high-activity and high-stability organic polymers for applications in data communications and telecommunications markets. It is using organic nonlinear electro-optical and all-optical polymers (plastic) as the basis for a series of proprietary (internal and licensed to external partners) advanced Integrated Optical Devices, which have extensive application in telecommunications, data communications, and optical computing for use in commercial and military markets.
Lightwave Logic has integrated its proprietary Perkinamine™ chromophore technology with other chromophores based in part on elements of proprietary, in-licensed technologies. This has resulted in a robust and durable nonlinear organic electro-optical (EO) material that will be used in photonic device development. It is based on the Company’s multi-chromophore approach, which enables two or more chromophores to work together.
The Polymer Photonics Integrated Circuit (P2ICTM) is analogous to an electronic integrated circuit. Nonetheless, it incorporates two or more optical functions or devices integrated onto a single substrate platform. Lightwave Logic’s expectation is that P2ICsTM will become an important engine in the transceiver market over the next ten years.
Lightwave Logic’s Intellectual Property (IP) has expanded substantially. The Company is developing its P2IC into prototypes. It filed greater than 6 patents during 2017. It expects to continue innovating with its P2IC platform in 2018. In addition, it expects to at least maintain this level of invention during the whole of this year.

NRG Metals, Inc. (NRGMF)
The Street, MarketWatch, Stockhouse, Barchart, and 4-Traders reported previously on NRG Metals, Inc. (NRGMF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
NRG Metals, Inc. searches for brine-based lithium targets in Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile. The Company has positioned itself for fast growth in the brines of South America. NRG Metals is operating in miner-friendly jurisdictions with first-class infrastructure, targeting battery-grade lithium and other forms of metal. OTCQB-listed NRG Metals is based in Vancouver British Columbia.
The Company’s goal is to quickly enter the lithium market through developing technically uncomplicated, limited environmental footprint projects in Argentina. The Hombre Muerto North Project in Argentina is in an area of lithium production and development.
The Salar Escondido Project in Argentina is a drill ready, fully permitted, 29,000 hectare claim block. It represents an exploration opportunity to make a major new lithium discovery.
The Salar Escondido Project is in Catamarca Province, 40km south of Antofagasta de la Sierra. The Project area is strategically positioned within the Lithium Triangle, in close proximity to one of the largest known lithium deposits in Argentina, and within the Puna Region.
The area is an elevated plateau that lies on the eastern side of the Andes Mountains. The area contains several highly mineralized salars. This includes the lithium producing salars Hombre Muerto.
The Company controls a dominant portion of the basin with 29,192 hectares under option. Surface sampling in fresh water zones returned anomalous Li values up to 50ppm and high carbonate values. Preliminary interpretation indicates four distinct zones.
NRG Metals’ emphasis is on identifying and establishing a project with the intent of producing an industrial grade lithium product. The Hombre Muerto North Project is a 3,297 Hectare claim package consisting of six concessions in Salta Province. Twenty surface samples collected in 2016-2017 range from 48 to 1,064 mg/L Li, averaging 587 mg/L Li, with seven samples over 800 mg/Li. The property package consists of the Alba Sabrina, Tramo, Natalia Maria, Gaston Enrique, Viamonte, and Norma Edit concessions.
This past October, NRG Metals announced in October of last year that it entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Chengdu Chemphys Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (Chemphys) in Chengdu, China, regarding the further exploration and development of the Hombre Muerto North Lithium Project (HMNLP). Moreover, this LOI includes a Lithium Offtake Sales Agreement and various other terms.
Subsequently, NRG Metals completed various agreements to give effect to its strategic alliance with Chemphys. This is to advance the exploration and development of the Company's Hombre Muerto North Lithium Project (HMNLP). Chemphys specializes in the production of high purity (99.99 percent) Lithium Carbonate and battery grade Lithium Hydroxide.
NRG Metals announced in December 2017 the discovery of lithium at the Salar Escondido Lithium Project. Earlier this month, NRG Metals reported that drilling at the Salar Escondido Lithium Project has progressed ahead of schedule. In addition an 8.5 inch rotary hole was completed to the target depth of 400 meters. The hole will now be reamed to a diameter of 12.25 inches so that perforated casing can be installed in preparation for sampling.
The hole intersected fine to coarse grained clastic sediments with occasional intercalated clay layers to a depth of 370 meters. The sediments are interpreted to represent alternating dunes, alluvial fans and valley sediments. From 370 to 400 meters the hole intersected an unaltered basalt, which may be the bottom of the basin.
NRG Metals, Inc. (NRGMF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.0827, up 5.62%, on 211,783 volume with 37 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 342,923 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0701/$0.494.

Marathon Gold Corporation (MGDPF)
Streetwise Reports, Barchart, Penny Stock Hub, Mining.com, Capital Equity Review, OTC Markets, Stockhouse, 4-Traders, TipRanks, MarketWatch, TradingView, The Street, Resource World, WalletInvestor, StockInvest.us, Stockwatch, YCharts, Marketbeat, and Investors Hangout reported on Marathon Gold Corporation (MGDPF), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
A gold exploration Company, Marathon Gold Corporation is rapidly advancing its 100 percent owned Valentine Lake Gold Camp located in Newfoundland. At present, the Valentine Lake Gold Camp hosts four near-surface, primarily pit-shell constrained deposits with measured and indicated resources totaling 2,137,400 oz. of gold at 1.99 g/t and inferred resources totaling 1,104,700 oz. of gold at 1.99 g/t. The majority of the resources occur in the Marathon and Leprechaun deposits that also have resources below the pit shell. Both deposits are open to depth and on strike. Marathon Gold has its head office in Toronto, Ontario.
The Valentine Lake Gold Camp is accessible by year-round road. It is in close proximity to Newfoundland’s electrical grid. Marathon maintains a 50-person all-season camp at the property. Recent metallurgical tests have demonstrated 93 percent to 98 percent recoveries through conventional milling and 50 percent to 70 percent recoveries through low cost heap leaching at the Leprechaun and Marathon Deposits.
Drilling this year will continue to center on expanding the Marathon Deposit at surface and to depth and also exploration drilling along the boggy covered area between the Marathon and Sprite Deposits.
Gold mineralization has been traced down more than 350 meters vertically at Leprechaun and close to a kilometer at Marathon. The four deposits outlined so far occur over a 20-kilometer system of gold bearing veins. Much of the 24,000-hectare property has had little detailed exploration activity to date.
Marathon Gold’s exploration projects include Baie Verte (100 percent owned -
Newfoundland) and the Bonanza Mine (100 percent owned – Oregon).
At the beginning of May, Marathon Gold announced that it established a new Mineral Resource Estimate for the Marathon Deposit at its Valentine Lake Property prepared under the direction of John T. Boyd Company in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). The resources were revised as part of the soon to be released Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).
All the gains came from the Marathon Deposit that was updated as of March 5, 2018. Because the pits were too small and require more drilling Sprite was not included in the PEA study.
Last week, Marathon Gold announced the first-rate results of an independent PEA on its Valentine Lake Gold Camp, central Newfoundland. The PEA provides a base case assessment of developing the Valentine Lake Gold Camp mineral resource through open pit mining, and gold recovery by a combination of a milling circuit and heap leaching, incorporating gravity and flotation circuits with leaching of the concentrate and tails.
Marathon Gold Corporation (MGDPF), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.605734, up 0.04%, on 29,066 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 32,516 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.603/$1.03.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF)
Lithium Chile (TSX.V: LITH) (OTCQB: LTMCF) is anticipating good news from its drilling program located in the notorious ‘Lithium Triangle’ as assay work is currently underway. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/YQ9w0.
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.
Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.
Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.
“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”
Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.
Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.
Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is positioned to benefit from growing global demand for lithium with the potential for a fast-track to production. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/m9GZr.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is a British Columbia based company engaged in the business of acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource properties. QMC’s focus is on creating shareholder value through strategic acquisition and development of high quality lithium, silver, gold, nickel, copper and zinc prospects.
QMC’s current properties are in the Canadian province of Manitoba, one of Canada’s most productive, centrally located mining regions. These resources include the Irgon Lithium Mine project and two Volcanic Massive Sulphide (“VMS”) properties – the Rocky Lake and Rocky-Namew known collectively as the Namew Lake District Project – which contain base metal-rich mineral deposits. Excellent access and well-developed mining infrastructure to the company’s wholly-owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project offers significant value and ramps up the near-term production schedule, putting QMC in a position to take advantage of rising lithium prices.
The region’s historic resource estimate of lithium is well documented in a 1956 Assessment Report developed by a previous owner, Lithium Corporation of Canada Ltd. The project’s historical resource estimate of 1.2 million tons grading 1.51% lithium-oxide over a strike length of 365 meters and to a depth of 213 meters is being updated by QMC through a detailed channel sampling and subsequent drill program.
North Face Software Ltd. recently created an interactive 3-D model of the Irgon Dike utilizing all historical data derived from past drilling and underground work. The 3-D model clearly demonstrates that exploration and underground development has only taken place on the central portion of the dike, leaving significant potential to quickly increase tonnage.
The company’s latest assay results, obtained from 144 channel samples at QMC’s Irgon Lithium Mine Project, provided encouraging and positive results that compare favorably with the historic assays. QMC has received a drill permit from the Sustainable Development Office of the Manitoba government and is in the process of requesting and assessing bids from drilling contractors. The company plans to begin a 2,000-meter drill program to confirm the historic lithium oxide assay results documented in the historic 1953-54 drill program.
QMC’s experienced leadership team includes specialists in mineral exploration, geology, engineering, new business development, marketing and investor relations. The company’s team of qualified advisors includes consultant Bruce E. Goad, P.Geo., who has 40 years of experience in mineral exploration in Canada, Argentina, Asia and Africa. As a Qualified Person, Goad has worked on numerous deposit styles including rare element pegmatites, porphyry, banded iron formation (BIF) gold deposits, skarn, greisens, and VMS. He has a wide and varied skill set which includes precious, base, industrial and rare metal projects with a sharp focus on gold exploration. Goad is the author of several scholarly publications on pegmatite granites of the southeastern Manitoba region.
The market for lithium has surged over the past three years with prices per metric ton tripling. The world’s rising demand for portable power can easily been seen in the electric vehicle and mobile device industries – both of which use lithium-based, renewable batteries as a power resource. QMC’s high potential prospects and experienced management team, both in geology and corporate finance, put QMC and its shareholders in an excellent position to take advantage of the lithium, precious and base metals markets.
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (QMCQF), closed the day's trading session at $0.241, up 5.15%, on 20,320 volume with 15 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 119,017 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.168/$1.46.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING)
Changes in the way people make payments and receive goods have created a new vision for the future of shopping. SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) is involved in two of the biggest shopping technology trends, having developed both a delivery system and an electronic payment wallet.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis’ SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint’s bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.

The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary’s product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation’s largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
Eric Lofdahl, SinglePoint’s chief technology officer, has more than 20 years of experience in the technology sector including positions in software development, program management, complex system integration and engineering process definition.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to report new drill results from its Iron Creek Cobalt Project in Idaho, USA. Results reported today demonstrate thicker cobalt mineralized zones as well as mineralization between the two recognized zones.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.20, up 2.04%, on 165,921 volume with 59 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 215,991 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1851/$1.3041.

CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY)
CytoDyn Inc. (CYDY) is a biotechnology company focused on the clinical development and potential commercialization of a new class of HIV/AIDS therapeutics or viral-entry inhibitors intended to protect healthy cells from viral infection. The company’s pipeline includes its lead product, PRO 140 for multiple indications among which are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), colon cancer, and multiple sclerosis (MS), each in various stages of development. CytoDyn first approval is focused on HIV indications for two different HIV populations.
PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed at CCR5, a molecular portal that HIV uses to enter T-cells. PRO 140 works by blocking the predominant HIV (R5) subtype entry into T-cells by masking this required co-receptor, CCR5.
CytoDyn has completed one pivotal phase 3 clinical trials of PRO 140 use in combination with current drugs for population that has limited treatment options. PRO 140 is also currently in another phase 3 (investigative trial) for a second approval for another HIV population. HIV continues to be a major global public health issue. There is no cure for the disease that has claimed more than 35 million lives to date, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). In 2017, 940,000 people around the world died from HIV-related causes. There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected during that same year. The WHO estimates there were 21.7 million people globally receiving antiretroviral therapy (“ART”) in 2017.
HIV targets the immune system and weakens the body’s defense systems against infections and some types of cancer. As the virus destroys and impairs the function of immune cells, infected individuals gradually become immunodeficient which results in increased susceptibility to a wide range of infections, cancers and other diseases that people with healthy immune systems can fight off. The most advanced stage of HIV infection is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can take from 2 to 15 years to develop depending on the individual.
PRO 140 functions by blocking the HIV co-receptor CCR5, a molecular portal HIV uses to enter T-cells, thus preventing the HIV virus from entering the cell. CCR5 is a protein located on the surface of white blood cells that normally serves as a receptor for chemicals that attract immune cells to the site of inflammation. Clinical trials to date indicate PRO 140 does not interfere with these normal CCR5 functions. Results from phase 1 and phase 2 human clinical trials have shown PRO 140 significantly reduces viral burden in people infected with HIV. Importantly, in a recent phase 2b clinical trial, PRO 140 demonstrated it can allow a subset of R5 strain of HIV population to replace their current HIV regimen (Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy or “HAART.”) by a simple sub-cutaneous self-injectable dose of PRO 140 which is administered once a week. Some of those patients have received PRO 140 as their only therapy for almost four years.
The PRO 140 antibody appears to be a powerful antiviral agent with hardly any side effects, toxicity. More than 500 patients have used PRO 140 in clinical trial and no resistance has ever been developed in any patients including patients in monotherapy of PRO 140 for almost four years.
PRO 140, which is taken as an easy-to-use, weekly, subcutaneous self-administered dose, has almost no side effects or toxicity with no report of any serious adverse event related to PRO 140 in more than 500 patients in eight different clinical trial.
As we indicated earlier patients given PRO 140 showed no drug resistance on monotherapy for some almost four years while 76% of HAART patients developed a resistance to some portion of the lifetime drug regimen. Patient compliance with HAART is also the main reason why only 35% of HIV patients in US reporting complete viral load (VL) suppression which is VL<50 cp/mL.
In addition to its research into the powerful potential of PRO 140 for use in HIV patients, CytoDyn is pursuing PRO 140 as a therapeutic anti-viral agent in other non-HIV indications that could benefit from PRO 140’s ability to block CCR5. These immunologic indications include new reactions to cancer, transplantation rejection, autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation such as Multiple Sclerosis. The company sees the significant potential for multiple pipeline opportunities for PRO 140.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated PRO 140 as a “fast track” product for HIV and granted Orphan Drug Designation to it for the prevention of GvHD in transplant patients. CytoDyn has initiated its first clinical trial with PRO 140 in an immunological indication for GvHD in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who are undergoing bone marrow stem cell transplantation. The company is also investigating PRO 140 in animal models of cancer progression and autoimmunity with positive results and has published its animal study results in GvHD in peer-reviewed journal.
CytoDyn president and CEO Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D. joined the company in 2008 and is credited for purchasing PRO 140 from Progenics in 2012 and has taken a new path to approval for the product. He is the co-inventor of monotherapy path for PRO 140. He has taken PRO 140 development from phase 2 to Completed successful phase 3 in about four years. He now has more than 10 years of drug development experience and has overseen the rapid clinical development of PRO 140 as a therapy for HIV into two phase 3 for two different indications. He also initiated PRO 140 first immunological indication in GvHD (currently in phase 2). He is also involved in preclinical and clinical development of PRO 140 in additional immunological indications.?Dr. Pourhassan, who has more than 20 years of business development experience, has led CytoDyn’s capital market activities since joining the company in 2008. He received his Bachelor of Science from Utah State University, Master of Science from Brigham Young University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah and is the author of three books.

Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG)
NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (OTC: VMHG), a client of NNW focused on providing its clientele with a one-stop experience for all of their recreational marine needs. To view the full publication, titled “Rising Global Economic Tide Lifts Yacht and Boat Firms High,” visit: http://nnw.fm/1MTjc.
Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG) is a world-class yacht sales, brokerage and consulting firm with a sprawling inventory of new and used boats, financing, insurance, documentation and recreational marine accessories. Located in Miami, Florida – the “yacht capital of the world” – Victory Marine has over 20 years of experience in an industry hailed as “an American pastime and economic engine” by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (“NMMA”).
According to the NMMA, marine sales reached $39 billion in 2017. To capture its share of this market, Victory Marine has established partnerships with several selective manufacturers and is pursuing opportunities for vertical growth. While the company’s near-term focus is on expansion of its inventory and sales team, its longer-term plans reflect the current state of the broader yacht industry.
Marine sales are at a 10-year high, and though yacht manufacturers are operating at full capacity, delivery of some products can take longer than 18 months. As a result, Victory Marine is taking steps to establish its own pipeline. Management is currently in negotiations with several yacht manufacturers to build the company its own unique, private-label design, which would enable Victory Marine to quickly deliver a superior product to its clients.
Demand for recreational boat trailers is also on the rise, with growth reported for nearly all powerboat segments. Florida continues to ride the top of that crest with sales of powerboats, trailers, and accessories up 10 percent in 2017 to $2.9 billion, followed by Texas ($1.7 billion) and Michigan ($982 million).
Victory Marine’s wholly owned Excalibur Trailers USA subsidiary is set to take advantage of this market, and is approved by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) to build custom marine aluminum trailers for recreational boats, as well as for commercial boat transport. Excalibur Trailers USA has filed the necessary paperwork to trademark its brand name and logo and is seeking a suitable manufacturing facility in South Florida for production of powerboat, sailboat, catamaran, powerboat and Jet Ski trailers.
Leading Victory Marine to capture its share of the market is company CEO Orlando Hernandez, whose experience in the marine industry includes negotiation, business planning, investor relations, operations management and sales. He is joined by veteran yacht broker Gary Beaver, who has more than 20 years of successful yacht sales and industry experience. Beaver brings to Victory Marine his portfolio of approximately 25 vessel listings, valued in excess of $10 million.
Victory Marine Holdings Corp. (VMHG), closed the day's trading session at $0.0899, even for the day, on 4,739 volume with 8 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 52,741 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0655/$0.97.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (OTC: MCOA) is pleased to announce that the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary hempSMART™ held its successful first South West Regional Event for its associates in Carlsbad, California on Monday October 22, 2018. Also today, the company was featured in an article examining how, just as the legal cannabis industry has exploded in recent years, so too has a sector that revolves around the plant’s non-psychoactive cousin: hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD).

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. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
CannabisNewsAudio announces the Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Canada Leads International Cannabis Boom — and It’s Not About Smoking,” featuring Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP). To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/7n7B5. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/6sImP. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report examining how the company has been granted two new U.S. patents based on cannabinoid-infused beverage compositions using its DehydraTECH ingestion technology platform. The company is building its strategic intellectual property (IP) portfolio with over 50 applications worldwide and is seeking expedited examination for two more patents in Australia based on the U.S. patents it received. It hopes to be granted two new corresponding Australian patents by year’s end (http://nnw.fm/1OmkA).
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including 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 $1.4375, off by 6.66%, on 160,928 volume with 294 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 237,510 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3621/$2.54.

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

CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.
The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.
Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world’s first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.
In conjunction, CIIX’s cannabis-focused “Yelp”-style mobile app is in development as a platform for Chinese people to review and discuss various cannabis products. The app will be the first marijuana social media mobile app designed for Chinese-speaking customers worldwide.
ChineseInvestors.com (CIIX), closed the day's trading session at $0.721, off by 7.39%, on 379,248 volume with 218 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 640,375 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.365/$1.58.
