HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI)
Infront Analytics, Morningstar, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, BUYINS.NET, Stockhouse, Simply Wall St, 4-Traders, Dividend Investor, and Wallet Investor reported previously on HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company listed on the OTC Markets` OTCQB. The Company discovers, develops, and plans to commercialize front-line therapeutics for patients with cancer. It is looking to repurpose the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved antifungal pharmaceutical itraconazole as a potential treatment for cancer. HedgePath Pharmaceuticals is based in Tampa, Florida.
The Company is the exclusive U.S. licensee of a patented formulation of itraconazole, called SUBA-Itraconazole. Clinical studies have shown it to have more bioavailability than generic itraconazole. The Hedgehog signaling pathway is a major regulator of cellular processes in vertebrates. This includes cell differentiation, tissue polarity, and cell proliferation.
HedgePath Pharmaceuticals believes (based on published research) that inhibiting the Hedgehog pathway could delay or possibly prevent the development of certain cancers in humans. Taking advantage of research undertaken by key investigators in the field, the Company’s plan is to explore the effectiveness of SUBA-Itraconazole as an anti-cancer agent and to pursue its potential commercialization.
The design of “SUBA technology” (which stands for “Super Bioavailability”) is to improve the bioavailability of orally administered drugs that are poorly soluble. SUBA-Itraconazole is a patented formulation developed by Mayne Pharma. It has improved absorption and considerably reduced variability versus generic itraconazole.
HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announced this past August that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed the Company's current clinical and regulatory pathway related to HedgePath’s SUBA™-Itraconazole as a treatment for Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) in patients with Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS, or Gorlin Syndrome). The FDA's positive feedback was received at HedgePath’s previously announced July 23, 2018 Type-C Meeting with the FDA. It was confirmed in minutes of the meeting received by HedgePath from the FDA.
Recently, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals announced it gained additional clarity concerning its clinical program and the anticipated timing for filing of its New Drug Application (NDA) for SUBA™-Itraconazole as a treatment for Basal Cell Carcinoma in patients with Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS) based on meeting minutes received by the Company from the FDA relating to its face-to-face meeting with the FDA on September 25, 2018.
Mr. Nicholas J. Virca, HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc.`s (HPPI's) President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with the outcome of this meeting with FDA as we have gained important additional clarity on what is required for our SUBA BCCNS NDA. The consequence of FDA requiring the completion of the ISS module is that HPPI will require more time than we previously anticipated to submit our NDA, resulting in a revised anticipated NDA submission date of sometime in the first quarter of 2019. We are currently in the process of performing the requested updates, which we believe will enhance our data package."
HedgePath Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (HPPI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.13, down 18.75%, on 31,642 volume with 9 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 19,558 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1545/$0.375.

NetworkNewsWire, Stock Digest, Zacks, Wallmine, OTC Markets, Penny Stock Tweets, 4-Traders, YCharts, Stockhouse, InvestorsHub, NASDAQ.com, Simply Wall St, and Financial Content reported earlier on Artemis Therapeutics, Inc. (ATMS), and we also highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Artemis Therapeutics, Inc. focuses on the development of new therapies for the treatment and prevention of severe and life-threatening infectious diseases. The Company’s lead product candidate is Artemisone. This is an innovative, synthetic artemisinin derivative with potent anti-viral and anti-parasitic properties. A clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, Artemis Therapeutics has its corporate office in New York, New York. The Company lists on the OTCQB.
Artemisone is a best-in-class artemisinin. It has been studied in a Phase 2 clinical trial for the treatment of malaria (p. falciparum). Artemis Therapeutics has licensed pre-clinical data from Hadasit Medical Research Services and Development Ltd. in HCMV and clinical data from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology R and D Corporation Limited (RDC) in the treatment of Malaria.
Artemisinin and its derivatives, including artesunate, artemether, arteeter and dihydro-atemisinin (DHA), have for many years been the basis of treatment of uncomplicated p. falciparum malaria. Phase II clinical data has shown Artemisone to be an effective treatment for p. falciparum malaria infection when dosed over a 2-day or 3-day course, similar to or shorter than other available malaria treatments.
Artemisone is currently undergoing in vitro evaluation for its activity against human cytomegalovirus (CMV). This includes transplant CMV and congenital CMV. In June 2018, the Company announced that new data on its lead product candidate Artemisone shows it is a potent inhibitor of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) replication in preclinical assays.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted orphan drug designation for Artemisone for the treatment of malaria. The Company is now qualified to receive considerable benefits via its orphan drug development program. This includes more frequent FDA interactions, protocol assistance, and tax credits for clinical research expenses.
Artemis Therapeutics announced earlier in 2018 that data on its lead product candidate Artemisone were published in two separate articles in the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy. The studies indicate that Artemisone in a preclinical setting is a potent inhibitor of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) replication and the transmissible stages of malaria.
Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus related to the viruses that cause chickenpox, herpes simplex, as well as mononucleosis. CMV is transmitted through bodily fluids. Almost half of all Americans are infected by the age of six. In people over age 80, prevalence reaches 90 percent. The virus normally causes no symptoms. It remains latent in the body following infection. However, it may “reactivate” many years later, leading to serious health issues. Artemis Therapeutics` lead product candidate, Artemisone, is undergoing development as a best-in-class treatment for malaria and first-in-class treatment for CMV.
Artemis Therapeutics, Inc. (ATMS), closed Monday's trading session at $0.2601, down 61.75%, on 975 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 280 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2601/$1.70.
BioVie, Inc. (BIVI)
Penny Stock Tweets, Investor Place, Wallmine, Wealth Insider Alert, InvestorsHub, Morningstar, YCharts, EuroInvestor, MarketWatch, and Simply Wall St reported previously on BioVie, Inc. (BIVI), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
BioVie, Inc. centers on the discovery, development, as well as commercialization of innovative drug therapies for liver disease. Currently, the clinical-stage Company is concentrating on commercializing BIV201. This is a novel approach to the treatment of ascites because of chronic liver cirrhosis. BioVie is based in Beverly, Massachusetts and the Company lists on the OTCQB.
BioVie states that BIV201 has the potential to improve the health of thousands of patients suffering from life-threatening complications of liver cirrhosis because of hepatitis, NASH, and alcoholism. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued US Patent No. 9,655,945 covering the Company’s new drug candidate BIV201.
BIV201 has Orphan Drug designation for the most common of these complications, ascites, which represents a significant unmet medical need. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved any drug specifically for treating ascites. BIV201 is a continuous infusion of the peptide terlipressin, first undergoing development for the treatment of refractory ascites. Terlipressin, dosed differently, is approved in approximately 40 countries for other complications of liver cirrhosis coming up from a similar disease pathway. Terlipressin is not available in the United States.
In April 2017, BioVie announced that it received notice from the FDA that the planned Phase 2a clinical trial of its new drug candidate BIV201 could begin. This was based on BioVie’s IND to conduct a study in patients with refractory or intractable ascites because of advanced liver cirrhosis.
Additionally, BioVie announced in April 2017 the signing of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). This is to conduct a Phase 2a clinical trial of BIV201 in patients with refractory or intractable ascites due to advanced liver cirrhosis.
In December 2017, BioVie announced that the FDA granted Fast Track designation for BIV201 (continuous infusion terlipressin), its patented Orphan drug candidate. BIV201 is now undergoing evaluation for the treatment of refractory ascites due to liver cirrhosis in a mid-stage (Phase 2a) US clinical trial.
Last week, BioVie announced that FDA granted an Orphan Drug designation to BioVie for terlipressin for the treatment of hepatorenal syndrome (HRS). The Company earlier secured an Orphan Drug designation for terlipressin for treating ascites and is exploring additional Orphan designation opportunities. An Orphan Drug designation usually provides 7 years of market exclusivity to the company that is first to obtain FDA marketing approval for the drug for the designated rare disease or condition.
BioVie, Inc. (BIVI), closed Monday's trading session at $0.041, down 14.58%, on 30,000 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 62,734 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.012/$0.25.

With the marketing of cannabis companies and their products in its infancy, the company believes the industry offers tremendous opportunity for growth in the U.S. and abroad. Chemistree initially targeted the Pacific Northwest for investment and, following its recent California property purchase, expects to expand vertically across the United States in areas where it has a competitive business advantage.
Through its wholly owned CHM Desert LLC subsidiary, Chemistree owns 9.55 acres of undeveloped land in Desert Hot Springs, California. The property is zoned as Light Industrial Lands Designated for Marijuana Cultivation, and local zoning ordinances allow as a conditional use the location of up to three onsite cannabis cultivation buildings of 68,000 square feet each, along with support space that would support production of 55,000 pounds/year.
Through its wholly owned Chemistree Washington Ltd. subsidiary, Chemistree acquired physical assets used in the cultivation, production and distribution of cannabis. The Washington assets are currently under lease to Sugarleaf Farm LLC, which operates the Sugarleaf brand of retail cannabis products in the State of Washington. Sugarleaf Farm is a Tier 3 cannabis producer and processor whose products are sold in about 125 retail outlets. Chemistree has indicated the relationship with Sugarleaf may provide the company with additional opportunities to become involved in the marketing of Sugarleaf products.
Chemistree funded these acquisitions and investments with the proceeds of two non-brokered private placement financings completed earlier this year under the regulations of the Canadian Securities Exchange, totaling CAD$4.5 million. In conjunction with the private placements, the company was granted approval by the CSE for a change of business to become an Investment Issuer. This funding is expected to provide the company “maximum flexibility to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available in the cannabis industry in Canada and the U.S.”
Chemistree also has a strategic investment in Pasha Brands Ltd., a British Columbia based cannabis company with multiple internationally recognized brands. Pasha has a proven history in cannabis retailing and its proposed Licensed Processing (LP) facility on Vancouver Island is in the final stage of the application for government approval. The LP facility is expected to assist in licensing selected craft growers of cannabis and expanding the distribution of locally grown product. The investment represents less than 10% of Chemistree’s working capital.
Company Chairman Justin Chorbajian is co-owner of the largest chain of privately owned hydroponic retail shops in Canada. He also cofounded a group of companies that manufacture and distribute hydroponic equipment. He is a frequent contributor to Growing Exposed, the leading video series dedicated to cannabis cultivation. Company President Karl Kottmeier is a former investment advisor with 20 years of experience listing, financing and administering companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange. He has raised more than $150 million in equity capital for ventures.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP), a biotech company and drug delivery platform innovator, announced in a recent press release (http://nnw.fm/5pwGS) that it has submitted a Health Canada research application and has appointed a new member to its executive team.
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.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY)
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (OTC: ZNGY), a company passionate about helping reduce carbon emissions across the nation, boasts the ability to lower its customers’ energy consumption by 20 to 60 percent. Its Zero Cost Program, offered to corporate clients, comes fully complete and ready to operate upon purchase. After their initial investment, clients have found the product to fully pay for itself within five to seven years due to the energy conservation savings.
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.
The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.
A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.
Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.
Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.
“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.
On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX-V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ)
QMC Quantum Minerals Corp. (OTC: QMCQF) (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) is capping an eventful year at its Irgon Lithium Mine Project by preparing to rapidly expand exploration and bring the project into production once its qualified engineer (SGS Canada) has upgraded the historical resource estimate to be compliant with current NI 43-101 standards.
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 $0.2088, up 0.87%, on 38,649 volume with 23 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 98,259 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.168/$1.275.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF)
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX.V: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1) today announced recognition of its wholly owned subsidiary, 7ACRES, as the Brand of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Cannabis Awards presented by Lift & Co. (TSX.V: LIFT). To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/S3agS.
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.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)
BriaCell Therapeutics (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT) is a biotechnology company focusing its efforts on immuno-oncology through the development of targeted, safe treatment options for cancer. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/aL6ap.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.
BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.
The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.
BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.
BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.
Breast Cancer Statistics
The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.
The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (BCTXF), closed the day's trading session at $0.0808, off by 0.25%, on 13,200 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 18,073 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.068/$0.1387.

American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH)
American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH) announces that it has engaged Canadian law firm Aird & Berlis with the intention to begin the process to list on a Canadian stock exchange. The Company’s goal is to be listed in Canada by the end of the first half of 2019.
American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), headquartered in Playa Vista, California, is a diversified holding company, manufacturer, distributor and marketer of branded consumer products. HIPH, the acronym for “Hi-Power of Hydro,” maintains a portfolio of subsidiaries catering to the health-conscious consumer and luxury fashion brand connoisseur. The company’s two main pillars focus on the development of health and beauty biotech, dedicated to unlocking the power of hydrogen and nanotechnologies. Paired with cannabidiol or “CBD” in a unique beverage, the technology is proving to be a significant health and wellness option for astute consumers.
Among the company’s holdings are:
- LALPINA Hydro beverages mix hydrogen with nanotechnology into consumer beverages that combine the best of health, nutrition and fitness to deliver short and long-term therapeutic health benefits. LALPINA Hydro utilizes atomic molecular hydrogen, or diatomic hydrogen, which converts antioxidants in the body to H2O to further enhance hydration, which helps increase endurance, reduce lactic acid and melt away fatigue. Over 500 peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models.
- LALPINA Hydro CBD is a technically superior CBD-infused beverage. Using hydro and nanotechnology, LALPINA Hydro CBD encapsulates water molecules with cannabidiol molecules, making them infinitely more bioavailable and accelerating delivery to the body’s cells and tissues. Each bottle of LALPINA Hydro CBD contains 3 million nanograms of CBD free from the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). HIPH is the first to introduce a hydro-nano CBD-infused beverage on the market, which is a more effective delivery mechanism for administering CBD into the blood stream than traditional beverages or oils, with up to a 90 percent higher absorption rates.
The company recently signed a distribution agreement for its subsidiary, LALPINA Hydro CBD, to sell its beverages to two SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) e-commerce channels: SingleSeed.com and DIGSHydro.com. SING is a technology and investment company with a portfolio that includes mobile payments, blockchain solutions and ancillary cannabis services. HIPH will drop ship its product to the customers.
HIPH CEO Ryan Fishoff said the e-commerce arrangements “could bring in excess of a million of revenue over the life of the agreement.” The agreement serves as a pillar of the company’s e-commerce distribution strategy, driving awareness and impressions for the LALPINA brand.
In addition, HIPH seeks to market emerging fashion brands and leverage its relationship with classic retail partners while incorporating disruptive blockchain technologies to expand its retail footprint with the following:
- Gents, a producer of luxury hats and other fine accessories and apparel, was acquired in September 2017. Gents is distributed across many luxury retail outlets including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and other high-end channels. The company added the Worthy streetwear brand to its portfolio in June 2018.
- HIPH also acquired the license to operate the FashionCoinX exchange, a blockchain exchange focused on creating utility tokens for the fashion industry, and created THRD Coin, a multi-branded utility rewards token that is also the first token to be traded on the exchange. The company is leveraging its retail footprint and expertise in the fashion and apparel space with the burgeoning blockchain sector.
American Premium Water Corp. (HIPH), closed the day's trading session at $0.028, off by 6.67%, on 12,736,312 volume with 478 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 19,074,944 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0035/$0.1319.
