Predictive Oncology’s (NASDAQ: POAI) Skyline Medical Sells 15 Streamway(R) Systems in Q3 2020 as COVID-era Drives Need for Sanitation Systems

  • Closed design of Streamway(R) System provides safety from potential hazards of drips and spills during endoscopy, radiology, cystoscopy, urology procedures
  • The Streamway(R) System reduces costs, minimizes environmental impact of 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters disposed into landfills
  • POAI’s Skyline Medical sells 8 Streamway(R) Systems to large university hospital in Virginia, 15 sold halfway into Q3 2020

In the age of COVID-19, the need for sanitation and safety during hospital procedures has reached an all-time high. Health professionals have reported an inhibited level of performance due to a lack of protection, comfort, and increased fatigue during surgery (https://ibn.fm/87UEr). Sanitary disposal systems, able to offer maximum protection to healthcare workers, have become incredibly necessary—and companies like Predictive Oncology are answering the call. Produced by Skyline Medical, a subsidiary of Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), the patented Streamway(R) System features an entirely closed design, ensuring that medical professionals are safe from the potential hazards of drips and spills. It’s the first FDA-cleared direct-to-drain fluid disposal system that is designed specifically for medical applications such as endoscopy, radiology, cystoscopy and urology procedures.

The proprietary system automates the collection, measurement and disposal of potentially infectious waste that includes blood and irrigation fluids. By connecting directly to a facility’s plumbing system, the Streamway(R) System has the potential to change the way healthcare facilities manage fluid disposal by minimizing human intervention and increasing compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines.

Along with addressing safety concerns, the use of the Streamway(R) System reduces costs and minimizes environmental impacts by eliminating carts, evacuated bottles and the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills each year in the United States. COVID-era concerns have increased sales of the Streamway(R) System in 2020, with 15 sales in Q3 (including eight to a large university hospital organization in Virginia) in addition to sales throughout the world through direct sales and distributor partners.

Along with Skyline, POAI leverages the synergies of its other three wholly-owned subsidiaries – Helomics, TumorGenesis, and Soluble Biotech – to fulfill its mission of bringing precision medicine to the diagnosis of cancer. Besides the Streamway(R) System, POAI’s portfolio assets also include an AI-enhanced “smart” patient-derived tumor profiling platform, an in-house bioinformatics artificial intelligence (AI) platform, and a data-based approach to growing patient-specific tumors in a lab for the development of personalized treatment options.

The importance of precision medicine in cancer therapeutics has grown substantially, driven specifically by data-based predictive models of tumors and their responses to pharmaceutical treatments. Modeling various tumors can be both time and data-intensive, requiring five to seven years of clinical evaluation and observation to produce both historical and outcome data.

To that end, POAI has a significant competitive advantage through its vast collection of tumors and their related data, in addition to the company’s ability to access associated outcome data. The application of AI to its trove of more than 150,000 tumors assists oncologists in providing individualized patient treatments while driving forward the development of new targeted therapies in collaborations with pharmaceutical companies.

POAI is bringing precision medicine, or tailored medical treatment using the individual characteristics of each patient, to the treatment of cancer. Through its Helomics division, the company leverages its unique, clinically validated patient derived (“PDx”) smart tumor profiling platform to provide oncologists with a roadmap to help individualize therapy. In addition, the company is leveraging artificial intelligence and its proprietary database of over 150,000 cancer cases tumors to build AI-driven models of tumor drug response to improve outcomes for the patients of today and tomorrow.

AzurRx BioPharma Inc. (NASDAQ: AZRX) Planning to Test Immediate Release MS1819 Capsules in Cystic Fibrosis Study

  • The company plans to add another study arm to its ongoing Phase 2b OPTION 2 clinical study which currently tests delayed release capsules
  • If it receives FDA approval, AzurRx would be able to identify the optimal delivery method for its drug candidate MS1819 without significant extra costs or delays
  • Enrollment in this arm of the study could begin as early as December 2020

AzurRx BioPharma (NASDAQ: AZRX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of non-systemic, recombinant therapies for gastrointestinal diseases, has submitted a protocol amendment request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that would allow it to test immediate release capsules of its exocrine pancreatic insufficiency drug candidate MS1819.

According to a company press release, if the amendment is approved, AzurRx would modify its current Phase 2b OPTION 2 trial of MS1819 in cystic fibrosis patients to add a study arm that uses immediate release capsules (https://ibn.fm/Ws66z). The existing arm of the study uses delayed release capsules. This would allow AzurRx to compare data from both arms to determine the best delivery method for its lead product.

“As this trial progresses, we believe there may be significant clinical value in adding a study arm that uses our immediate release capsules. Our intention is to identify the optimal delivery method and potentially provide additional scientific support and optionality for MS1819,” AzurRx Chief Medical Officer Dr. James Pennington said.

The addition of a new arm would not impact the overall trial objectives, endpoints and statistical analysis of the Phase 2b OPTION 2 trial. “We are pleased to announce that our OPTION 2 trial is well ahead of schedule and almost fully enrolled without any safety issues being observed,” Dr. Pennington added. He also explained that determining appropriate dosage and delivery method is an important goal for any Phase 2 clinical trial, along with testing for safety and efficacy, before entering a Phase 3 program. He added that if the amendment is accepted by the FDA, AzurRx expects to begin enrollment into the new study arm as soon as December 2020.

AzurRx CEO James Sapirstein also said that the protocol amendment is a unique opportunity for the company to acquire valuable additional clinical data with no significant delays in the study timeline and no significant increase in overall costs.

The Phase 2b OPTION 2 trial consists of testing MS1819 doses in enteric capsule form with two concentrations: 2240mg and 4480mg. Initial results from the study indicated that the MS1819 non-porcine recombinant lipase is well tolerated at both dose levels and produces no adverse effects.

AzurRx is also conducting a Phase 2 cystic fibrosis combination trial, using MS1819 together with porcine pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (“PERT”), the current standard of care. This study uses daily PERT doses in combination with different MS1819 dosages (700mg, 1120mg and 2240mg) and results made available so far have shown clinically meaningful improvements in subjects, with no adverse safety events.

According to Sapirstein, the company remains on target to release to line data for its Phase 2b trial in the first quarter of 2021. Top line data for the combination trial is expected in the second quarter.

Pending the Phase 2b trial outcome, the company will initiate a Phase 3 trial in cystic fibrosis and to this end, it has already identified and signed a binding letter of intent with a potential partner for the development and production of MS1819 for the study. Under the agreement, Asymchem, a leading global contract development and manufacturing service provider, will implement fermentation, verify protein expression, and fine-tune the technology for MS1819 production to help AzurRx optimize manufacturing and prepare for commercialization (https://ibn.fm/HJwT4).

AzurRx is determined to develop MS1819 as a safer alternative to porcine pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy, significantly reducing the pill burden of cystic fibrosis patients. The company believes that due to its safety and efficacy, its proposed therapy has the potential to improve the quality of life and help achieve healthier nutrition for many patients suffering from severe exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, including those with cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis, pancreatectomy, and other indications.

CNS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) IND Application for Cancer Drug Berubicin Accepted for Review

  • CNS Pharmaceuticals wants to obtain FDA authorization for an Investigational New Drug application for drug candidate Berubicin, a novel treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme
  • Company believes it’s on track to start in Q1 2021 a potentially pivotal Phase II Berubicin trial with adult GBM patients who have failed their primary treatment for the disease
  • Separately, a Phase II adult trial and a first-ever Phase I pediatric trial are slated to begin in 2021 in Poland in collaboration with sub-licensee partner, WPD Pharmaceuticals
  • Members of CNS’s management team attended A.G.P.’s Virtual Health Symposium, meeting 1-on-1 with investors

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the central nervous system, recently announced that it has filed an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for its lead drug candidate Berubicin. This application has been accepted for review (https://ibn.fm/6NnwH).

Berubicin is proposed for the treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive form of brain cancer currently considered incurable, and may prove beneficial in treating other central nervous system malignancies. Since gaining the rights to Berubicin, and securing from Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: RETA) the Phase 1 trial data and assets, CNS has worked diligently to complete the requirements to bring the drug to trial.

John Climaco, CEO of CNS Pharmaceuticals, Inc., made a statement about the IND filing and how the tireless efforts of the team during the last year have helped reach this important milestone. “Our laser focus from the beginning has been to start the next phase of the investigation of Berubicin for the treatment of this deadly disease as quickly as possible,” he added.

The company believes it is well positioned to execute its plan and initiate a potentially pivotal Phase II trial for Berubicin in Q1 2021 beginning in the United States and expanding to a global trial. The Phase II Berubicin trial that is currently planned in Q1 2021 will evaluate the efficacy of Berubicin in patients with GBM who have failed primary treatment for the disease. Results will be compared with the current second-line standard of care. The trial will be executed with a 2 to 1 randomization of the participating 243 patients to Berubicin or Lomustine (as standard of care). This trial could potentially provide data to the FDA needed for approval of an expedited pathway for further development or approval.

CNS Phamaceuticals, in collaboration with sublicensee partner WPD Pharmaceuticals (CSE: WBIO) (FSE: 8SV1), is preparing two other clinical trials for Berubicin in Poland. The two studies include a Phase II trial in adults (set to begin in February 2021) and the first-ever Phase I trial for pediatric patients (scheduled to start later in 2021) (https://ibn.fm/p1zJ8).

The IND announcement came a few days before CNS management members attended A.G.P.’s Virtual Healthcare Symposium that took place Thursday, November 19, 2020. The virtual event brought together numerous healthcare and biotech companies for one-on-one meetings with investors, engaging panels and discussions with leading healthcare executives and a keynote speaker address (https://ibn.fm/jNkR6).

The IND filing and the upcoming clinical trials make Berubicin an interesting opportunity for investors, as CNS believes its novel treatment can fill the current gap in available GBM treatments and help position the company as a market leader in this fast-growing sector. The overall global brain tumor therapeutics market is targeted to reach an estimated $3.4 billion by 2025, from $2.25 billion in 2019, reflecting a CAGR of 7.20% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025, Market Study Report research shows (https://ibn.fm/SQkrD). Another report estimated that this market would reach $2.74 billion in 2023, registering a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023 (https://ibn.fm/EnB3Q).

MissionIRNewsBreaks – CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) CEO Discusses Brain Cancer Drug During Syndicated Broadcast

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the central nervous system, is featured in a recent NetworkNewsAudio (“NNA”) broadcast. During the broadcast, CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco explains that the company has recently submitted an investigational new drug (“IND) application to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) for its brain cancer drug, Berubicin. Climaco also discusses CNSP’s intent to begin Phase 2 trials of the drug during Q1 2021. The Phase 2 trial is designed to analyze the efficacy of Berubicin in treating patients with Glioblastoma Multiforme (“GBM”) whose primary treatment has failed. “Our laser focus from the beginning has been to start the next phase of the investigation of Berubicin for the treatment of this deadly disease as quickly as possible,” said Climaco in the press release. “Our team has worked tirelessly for the past year, making several inroads on our manufacturing and clinical efforts to achieve this important milestone. We believe we are optimally positioned to continue to execute our plan and initiate our Phase 2 trial in the first quarter of 2021. We continue to build on the positive results Berubicin demonstrated in the Phase 1 study in high grade gliomas and look forward to advancing its clinical development in these patients, with the end goal of addressing the unmet medical need of better treatment for patients diagnosed with GBM.”

About CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc.

CNS Pharmaceuticals is developing novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the brain and central nervous system. Its lead drug candidate, Berubicin, is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. CNS holds a worldwide exclusive license to the Berubicin chemical compound and has acquired all data and know-how from Reata Pharmaceuticals Inc. related to a completed Phase 1 clinical trial with Berubicin in malignant brain tumors, which Reata conducted in 2006. In this trial, 44% of patients experienced a statistically significant improvement in clinical benefit. This 44% disease control rate was based on 11 patients (out of 25 evaluable patients) with stable disease, plus responders. One patient experienced a durable complete response and remains cancer-free as of February 20, 2020. These Phase 1 results represent a limited patient sample size and, while promising, are not a guarantee that similar results will be achieved in subsequent trials. By the end of 2020, CNS expects to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial of Berubicin for the treatment of GBM in the United States, while a sub-licensee partner undertakes a Phase 2 trial in adults and a first-ever Phase 1 trial in pediatric GBM patients in Poland. The company’s second drug candidate, WP1244, is a novel DNA binding agent that has shown in preclinical studies that it is 500 times more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent daunorubicin in inhibiting tumor cell proliferation.

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. The Company’s lead product candidate, “REQORSA(TM)” (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). REQORSA has a multimodal mechanism of action that has been shown to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells; re-establish pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells; and modulate the immune response against cancer cells. REQORSA has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. In January 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track Designation for REQORSA for NSCLC in combination therapy with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R)) for patients with EFGR mutations whose tumors progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone.
