MissionIRNewsBreaks – VistaGen Therapeutics (NASDAQ: VTGN) CEO Addresses ‘Multi-Pronged Approach’ to Growing Problem of Workplace Stress and Anxiety

VistaGen Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ: VTGN) CEO Shawn Singh authored a recent article for Business.com regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting stress and anxiety impacts to the workplace. In the piece, Singh indicates that stress and anxiety, often driven by job-related issues, when left unchecked can rise to the level of an anxiety disorder with negative consequences for physical health, mental well-being, productivity and career opportunities. The global pandemic has exacerbated this largely unaddressed and widespread mental health problem in the workplace, markedly reflecting in increased prescriptions for antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications, many associated with significant side effects and safety concerns. “To adequately address the growing problem of workplace stress and anxiety both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic – and the physical and mental health consequences associated with it – a multi-pronged approach is needed,” states Singh in the article. “This approach should include the provision of additional mental/emotional health support from employers in the form of employee assistance programs (‘EAPs’), as well as novel approaches to psychotherapy and fundamentally different medications by mental health professionals.”

Predictive Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: POAI) Set to Capitalize on Increased AI Usage within Oncological Treatments

  • Predictive Oncology develops AI-solutions designed to assist clinicians in formulating personalized treatment plans for oncological patients
  • Artificial Intelligence is being increasingly used to help understand and accurately predict how drug therapies can interact with specific patients
  • POAI’s TumorGenesis subsidiary is also creating laboratory-grown tumors to help clinicians and researchers to better test therapies

Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven precision medicine company that focuses on applying data and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to cancer personalized medicine and drug discovery, is set to play a key role as the integration of AI technology within cancer care continues to improve the accuracy and speed of diagnosis, aid clinical decision-making and lead to better health outcomes. The National Cancer Institute (“NCI”) in the United States has separately revealed that it is increasingly looking to invest in supporting research and developing infrastructure centered around the usage of AI in developing oncological treatments (https://ibn.fm/BFD5m) – a niche where Predictive Oncology is increasingly building a dominant presence. In addition, the White House has announced $2 billion funding for public and private sector “AI hubs” designed to drive key advances in AI as well as other computational technologies (https://ibn.fm/kcgSH).

A primary goal of precision cancer medicine is the accurate prediction of optimal drug therapies based upon the personalized molecular profiles of patient tumors; ideally, such predictions are based upon well-established molecular cause-and-effect relationships that are disrupted in cancer calls (https://ibn.fm/LQvQX). The foundation of these accurate predictions is built upon extensive bodies of data, with the volume of cancer-relevant data being generated and electronically stored on a daily basis vastly exceeding what could even be imagined only a few decades ago. As such, the search for significant correlations within cancer-relevant “big” datasets is a task which is ideally suited for artificial intelligence and machine learning-based approaches.

Predictive Oncology focuses on building AI-driven predictive models of tumor drug response and outcomes from its unique real-world longitudinal data of drug-response and genomic profiles gathered from more than 150,000 de-identified cancer cases. Through its subsidiary Helomics, POAI is seeking to bring this cutting-edge technology to cancer research, where it is working with the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotech industries to develop predictive models of how tumors respond to drugs, which can be used both for clinical decision support and research into new therapies.

Meanwhile, the company’s wholly-owned TumorGenesis subsidiary specializes in the field of ovarian cancer, creating laboratory-grown cancer cells which can then be used to assist researchers and clinicians in identifying which cancer cells bind to specific biomarkers. Once the biomarkers are identified, they can be used in TumorGenesis’ proprietary Oncology Capture Technology Platform, which is able to grow the patient’s heterogeneous tumor sample in the laboratory, enabling oncologists to develop a patient-specific treatment plan (https://ibn.fm/byGJI).

Going forward, the use of artificial intelligence will help oncological researchers quickly understand how cancer cells become resistant to anti-cancer drugs, which can help improve drug development and adjust drug use. The technology can also be used to manage the use of chemotherapy drugs and predict a patient’s tolerance levels, thus allowing for chemotherapy regimens to be optimized. In the future, by leveraging Predictive Oncology’s AI-driven solutions, doctors will be able to make better-informed treatment decisions, thus reducing the need for unnecessary or poorly targeted treatments and improving patient outcomes.

CNS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CNSP) Expands Scientific Advisory Board with Leading Neuro-Oncology Expert, Dr. Patrick Wen, M.D.

  • Pivotal Phase 2 Berubicin trial expected to commence in Q1 2021 following planned IND submission in Q4 2020
  • CNS Pharmaceuticals also plans to begin pre-clinical work on Berubicin in connection with treatment for lymphomas, pancreatic, and ovarian cancers
  • Brain tumor drug therapeutics market expected to reach $3.4 billion by 2025

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers of the central nervous system, has expanded its Scientific Advisory Board by welcoming new member Dr. Patrick Wen, M.D., a leading neurology and neuro-oncology expert (https://ibn.fm/VJ6e9). Dr. Wen joins current Board members, Dr. Waldemar Priebe, Ph.D., and Dr. Sigmund Hsu, M.D., both of whom were involved in the Phase 1 trial of Berubicin, CNS Pharmaceuticals’ lead drug candidate.

Dr. Wen is a Neurology professor at Harvard Medical School and the Director of the Center for Neuro-Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Wen is a member of the Board of Directors of The Society for Neuro-Oncology and is also its immediate past President. An accomplished neuro-oncologist with a proven track record treating brain tumors and related neurologic complications, Dr. Wen is a graduate of University of London’s Medical College of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He continued his postgraduate internal medicine training with the University of London and completed his neurology residency with the Harvard-Longwood Neurology Training Program.

According to CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco, Dr. Wen’s extensive experience in neuro-oncology will be invaluable to the company as it prepares for its upcoming Berubicin clinical trials. “The addition of Dr. Wen strongly complements our strategy to further drive the development of Berubicin as we look forward to initiating our pivotal Phase II trial in the U.S. and to working with our partner WPD Pharmaceuticals on the Phase I pediatric and Phase II adult studies in Poland,” Climaco added.

Dr. Wen’s appointment was included among the latest company updates furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 21, 2020. The investor presentation in the Form 8-K/A also announced that the company’s pivotal Phase 2 clinical trial for Berubicin in the United States is expected to begin in Q1 2021 (https://ibn.fm/MRaIq). In addition, Berubicin clinical trials in Poland (Phase 2 for adults and the first-ever Phase 1 trial for pediatric patients) are also due to begin on a similar timeline.

CNS Pharmaceuticals’ lead drug candidate is proposed for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”), an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer. It is an organ targeted therapeutic that belongs to a class of cancer drugs called anthracyclines. CNS Pharmaceuticals has stated that it believes, based on limited clinical data, that Berubicin is the first drug in this class to cross the blood-brain barrier in adults, reaching the tumor cells of a patient with brain cancer.

Berubicin was developed by CNS Founder and Scientific Advisory Board member Dr. Waldemar Priebe, Ph.D., Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The development of Berubicin has been ongoing for over 15 years. The drug was granted Orphan Drug designation by the FDA for malignant gliomas in June 2020. CNS Pharmaceuticals is currently expected to make an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) submission to the FDA in Q4 2020.

In Phase 1 trials of Berubicin, conducted by Reata Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: RETA), 44% of GBM patients showed clinically significant response to Berubicin. A patient from the Phase 1 trial remains cancer-free following the trial treatment of Berubicin approximately 14 years ago.

CNS Pharmaceuticals plans for the Phase 2 adult trial in the United States to be adaptive, randomized, and controlled. These criteria for Phase 2 are intended to provide the data required for accelerated approval by the FDA. Additionally, the company plans to use the Phase 2 adult trial in Poland, conducted by sub-licensee WPD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CSE: WBIO) (FSE: 8SV1), to provide additional statistical support for the U.S. trial.

Plans are also in motion to begin Berubicin clinical trials for lymphomas, pancreatic, and ovarian cancers in 2021, which speaks to the high level of confidence CNS Pharmaceuticals has in Berubicin trials and its potential impact on the brain tumor therapeutics market. It is estimated that the global brain tumor therapeutics market will reach $3.4 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 7.2 percent (https://ibn.fm/fqDvu).

Sequire helps public companies gain insights on the activities of both retail and institutional investors, providing critical actionable data to activate successful campaigns aimed to increase engagement with current investors while attracting new ones. Sequire’s application suite is currently being used by over 91 companies to harness the power of their data through the use of tools that leverage investor intelligence and outreach, track warrants, engage users through surveys, and promote events and roadshows.

“The platform is an absolute game-changer for public companies and their shareholders,” said LD Micro founder Chris Lahiji in recent statements (https://ibn.fm/Mzz1z). “Both companies believe that one day executives will rely on Sequire the same way investors rely on Bloomberg.”

“Over 1,500 companies have presented at LD Micro’s events since 2008, and almost all of them would be immediate beneficiaries of this technology,” he continued.

The acquisition of LD Micro is expected to be immediately accreditive to SRAX’s operations. The recent LD 500 conference, held online in early September, included presentations from hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries in addition to featuring keynotes with some of the most prominent figures in the micro-cap world.

The company continues to leverage the growing demand for quantifiable and detailed consumer data by creating specialized tools that empower companies to reveal core consumers and their characteristics across a wide range of industries.

Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX: EFR) (NYSE American: UUUU) Awarded Funds by DOE to Develop Design for REE Production

  • Company awarded government grant that could total $1.45 million to develop design for production of rare earth elements
  • UUUU excited to play role in effort to develop domestic sources of rare earth production
  • Energy Fuels announced entry into REE sector earlier this year, ideal complement to company’s other rare earth initiatives

Energy Fuels (TSX: EFR) (NYSE American: UUUU), a leading producer of uranium in the United States, along with a team from Penn State University has been awarded a government grant for an initial amount of $150,000 to develop a design for the production of rare earth elements (“REE”) from coal-based resources (https://ibn.fm/kMbwJ). The contract was awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) Office of Fossil Energy (“FE”) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (“NETL”). If Energy Fuels is successful at the conceptual design phase, the DOE could award Energy Fuels an additional $1.3 million to complete a feasibility study.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with the DOE office of Fossil Energy, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, and Penn State on this important rare earth initiative,” said Energy Fuels president and CEO Mark S. Chalmers. “Energy Fuels has been carrying out substantial work over the past year to explore the potential for implementing a commercial rare earth recovery and processing program at our White Mesa Mill. This initiative to produce REOs from coal-based resources is complementary to our ongoing efforts and will potentially broaden the sources of REE feedstock available to us in the future. We also hope this project opens the door for us to work with the DOE and other agencies on future rare earth initiatives.”

The contract calls for Energy Fuels and a team of experts from Penn State to evaluate and develop a conceptual design to allow for the commercial production of mixed rare earth oxides from coal-based resources in an environmentally benign fashion. In addition, the contract also notes that DOE may award Energy Fuels a contract for the completion of a feasibility study on this initiative.

The DOE has already demonstrated the technical feasibility of extracting rare earth elements from coal and coal-based resources, but the department is looking to fast-track the advancement of commercially viable technologies to produce REEs from coal-based resources, including coal refuse, over/under burden materials, power generation ash and others.

Earlier this year, Energy Fuels announced its entry into the REE sector, noting that it believes its fully licensed and constructed White Mesa Mill could play a key role in bringing the REE supply chain back to the U.S. from China (https://ibn.fm/UEB25). The company applied for the DOE/NETL grant in June, in part because the REE minerals contained in these coal-based resources are similar to the REE minerals contained in other materials UUUU is evaluating as part of its REE program.

The contract provides initial funding for Energy Fuels and the Penn State team to complete a detailed conceptual design and flowsheet for the possible commercial operation of a facility that produces REOs from coal-based resources. Once that is complete, the DOE will determine whether to provide additional funding for the development of a feasibility study. It is also possible that the DOE could participate in the funding of a facility that performs this work.

“Rare earths are used in a host of advanced and everyday technologies, including cell phones, computers, renewable energy generation, batteries, automobiles, and military applications,” said Chalmers. “However, the U.S. does not currently have a fully integrated rare earth supply chain. Therefore, the government has made it a priority to assist in the development of domestic sources of rare earth production. With this award, we are excited to play a role in this effort, while also pursuing our other complementary rare earth initiatives. We also hope this DOE program puts Energy Fuels on the radar for other U.S. government rare earth initiatives.”

Based in Lakewood, Colorado, Energy Fuels holds three of America’s key uranium production centers: the Nichols Ranch (ISR) project in Wyoming, the Alta Mesa ISR Project in Texas and the White Mesa Mill in Utah – the only conventional uranium mill operating in the United States today. Together, these facilities have a licensed capacity of more than 11.5 million pounds of U3O8 per year. With an asset portfolio that boasts more uranium production facilities, in-ground resources, production capacity and experienced personnel than any other producer, Energy Fuels is in a unique position to maintain its position as the leading producer of uranium in an era of viable transformation of the U.S. nuclear industry.
