PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) Shares Corporate Update and Commitment to Advancing Therapies for Neurological Disorders, Prepares for Key Engagements with the FDA

  • PaxMedica is preparing to submit a New Drug Application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration later this year for using suramin to treat Human African Trypanosomiasis
  • PaxMedica is currently preparing for an associated and very important Type C meeting with the FDA scheduled for June 27th
  • Type C meetings are designated by the FDA to address specific issues in drug development, such as clinical trial design, data requirements, or other scientific matters not covered by Type A or Type B meetings

PaxMedica (NASDAQ: PXMD), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in neurological disorder treatments, recently shared corporate updates regarding its continued progress toward establishing suramin as an accepted treatment for Human African Trypanosomiasis (“HAT”).

PaxMedica is preparing to submit a New Drug Application (“NDA”) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for using suramin to treat Human African Trypanosomiasis, a well-established treatment in East Africa for nearly a century. In April 2024, PaxMedica demonstrated its commitment to global health by responding to an urgent request from Malawi for an emergency release of suramin. This proactive strategy highlights PaxMedica’s dedication to advancing global healthcare solutions (https://ibn.fm/PCQlF).

PaxMedica is also gearing up for a significant Type C meeting with FDA on June 27th. This meeting is critical for the advancement of PAX-101, the company’s leading drug candidate for treating autism, as it progresses through the regulatory framework.

Type C meetings are designated by the FDA to address specific issues in drug development, such as clinical trial design, data requirements, or other scientific matters not covered by Type A or Type B meetings. For PaxMedica, this Type C meeting is a strategic opportunity to engage with FDA experts and discuss the development steps required for PAX-101. This will ensure the company meets all necessary regulatory standards as it moves forward.

The upcoming meeting is a pivotal event for PaxMedica. It provides a platform to align with the FDA on crucial aspects concerning PAX-101, an intravenous formulation of suramin with potential to treat serious conditions like Human African Trypanosomiasis and Autism Spectrum Disorder (“ASD”). By engaging with the FDA, PaxMedica aims to clarify the regulatory pathways and address any potential hurdles in the clinical trial process, which are essential for bringing PAX-101 closer to market approval.

The implications of this FDA meeting are significant. It represents a key moment for PaxMedica to showcase the therapeutic potential and public health benefits of PAX-101. Successfully navigating this meeting could facilitate the next phases of clinical trials and the eventual approval process. This is crucial as PaxMedica seeks to address HAT, a neglected tropical disease, and ASD, affecting millions worldwide.

PaxMedica’s recent humanitarian efforts, such as providing suramin for HAT treatment in Malawi, demonstrate the company’s commitment to global health challenges. These actions highlight PAX-101’s potential to impact global healthcare positively.

As PaxMedica approaches this important meeting, the outcomes could significantly influence the company’s strategic direction and its ability to advance its mission of developing innovative treatments for neurological disorders. A positive engagement with the FDA could pave the way for further clinical developments and eventually bring PAX-101 to the patients who need it most.

CEO Howard Weisman stated, “We are not just continuing; we are intensifying our efforts to achieve significant milestones for these programs by the end of this year. We are on track to submit an NDA for PAX-101, and potentially secure an FDA Priority Review Voucher if approved.”

SuperCom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SPCB) Secures New $1.8 Million Contract with a Trusted Long-Term Government Customer

  • SuperCom Ltd. is a company focused on serving government and institutional electronic monitoring needs on a global basis
  • SuperCom’s competitive strength in serving the electronic and digital security ID market is demonstrated in its most recent $1.8 million contract with a long-term client
  • SuperCom’s most recent quarterly financial statement shows a 400 percent YOY increase in EBITDA, as well as revenue growth of 8 percent and gross profit growth of 139 percent

Secured electronic and digital solutions innovator SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB) recently announced that it has secured a new $1.8 million contract with a long-standing customer of its e-Government division, showcasing the company’s continued competitiveness and the values that help it retain clients. The new contract is expected to be fulfilled over the next five months. For over 30 years, SuperCom has been a trusted partner with over 20 national governments around the world, recognized as a global leader in the design, development, integration, and delivery of highly secured national ID and e-government solutions (https://ibn.fm/OMqVI).

SuperCom’s e-government platforms help governments, and their agencies create secured, multi-identification (Multi-ID) documents and issue them for various needs ranging from border control services to biometrics enrollment. The company supports the public safety sector globally with proprietary solutions, as well as complementary services for its flagship products that support e-government, IoT and cybersecurity sectors.

The new $1.8 million contract is with a customer that has been a SuperCom client for over a decade and follows on the heels of SuperCom’s quarterly statement that highlights $5 million in recent orders the company has received from various European governments.

“This contract not only signifies their satisfaction with our work but also their confidence in SuperCom’s ability to consistently deliver high-quality products and services,” President and CEO Ordan Trabelsi stated in the company’s May 16 announcement (https://ibn.fm/j53d3). “Our ability to secure more contracts of this magnitude with our long-term customers demonstrates our competitive edge and unwavering dedication to their success.”

Much of SuperCom’s corporate focus is on the capacity of its PureSecurity Suite of products to deliver an end-to-end, real-time electronic monitoring (“EM”) solution marketed principally to judicial and law enforcement agencies as a means of establishing community safety protocols while the agencies explore cost-saving alternatives to incarceration. The use of EM solutions for tracking non-incarcerated criminal suspects and convicted offenders has increased on a vast scale in recent years. The Vera Institute of Justice recently reported that about a half million people in the United States participated in EM programs between 2021 and 2022, following a five-fold jump in EM use between 2005 and 2021 (https://ibn.fm/Tw1Gm). The growing use of EM underscores the strength of the market opportunity for SuperCom.

According to the quarterly financial statement issued earlier this month, SuperCom’s revenues increased by 8 percent and gross profit by 139 percent (https://ibn.fm/uyV8e). That also resulted in a 400 percent YOY growth in the company’s EBITDA.

The company is focused on expanding with more county and state partners in North America, as well as advancing its distribution area in Europe, where a number of national-level contracts are already in place.

MissionIRNewsBreaks – McEwen Mining (NYSE: MUX) (TSX: MUX) Reports Attractive Gold Grades at Grey Fox, Strengthened Potential for Open Pit Mining

McEwen Mining (NYSE: MUX) (TSX: MUX) yesterday announced promising new assay results from the Grey Fox deposit within its Fox Complex. The highlights include significant gold grades at both shallow and deeper levels, suggesting potential for low-cost open pit mining and intriguing follow-up targets. Notable assay results including but not limited to 586.7 g/t Au over 0.5 meters and 14.3 g/t Au over 5.0 meters, are indicative of prospective high-grade gold zones. Grey Fox’s current resource estimate stands at 1,168,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 4.80 g/t Au (Indicated) and 236,000 ounces of gold at 4.35 g/t Au (Inferred), with an updated resource estimate expected by the end of September.

Geological interpretations suggest that Grey Fox lies above the mineralization of the Black Fox and Froome mines, enhancing its appeal. The Gibson zone, a high-priority target, has shown promising assay results with significant near-surface and deep mineralization, indicating resource growth potential. The Whiskey-Jack, GFS, and 147 zones also present attractive targets with high gold grades and favorable geological settings.

McEwen Mining’s ongoing exploration program aims to delineate and expand these resources as part of further solidifying Grey Fox as a prime candidate for open pit mining.

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, is developing a zero-emissions version of its mobile EV-charging solution, PowerUP. The solution will be available on Mullen’s Class 3 all-electric cab chassis truck. According to the announcement, PowerUp provides increased versatility and 100% zero emissions power generation that can deliver on-demand, mobile DC fast-charging. The company noted that the shift to a 100% zero-emission model represents its commitment to sustainable transportation solutions while also meeting overwhelming market demand for zero-emission options in the mobile EV-charging space. First introduced in 2023 as a mobile EV-charging truck, the original model utilized a gasoline Class 5 cab chassis platform and a dual-fuel (propane/natural gas) power generation unit. The new zero-emissions PowerUP system offers significant improvements in charging capabilities and versatility and is available with multiple platform integration and scaling options including the Mullen THREE Class 3 cab chassis truck. The PowerUP is being developed at Mullen’s California-based high-energy facility, which is producing the next-generation of American-made EV battery packs. The addition of PowerUP to its lineup aligns with Mullen’s vision of creating a comprehensive electric-vehicle ecosystem built in the United States. “We’re constantly innovating and adapting to meet the evolving needs of the industry,” said Mullen Automotive CEO and chair David Michery in the press release. “The feedback on the initial PowerUP concept was overwhelmingly positive, but the market is clearly looking for a zero-emission solution. By leveraging our all-electric Mullen THREE, the new PowerUP delivers recharging at a higher level of scalability and performance while offering zero emissions for both the vehicle and power unit.”

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Concludes First Dosing for its Second GLP-1 Human Pilot Study; Maintains Study Pace and Rollout for 2024

  • Lexaria, a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, just concluded its first dosing for its glucagon-peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) human pilot study #2, GLP-1-H24-2
  • GLP-1, a class of drugs, has demonstrated the ability to address diabetes and weight loss, albeit with poor oral bioavailability, usually as little as 0.8%
  • Lexaria, through its study, looks to demonstrate the effectiveness of its DehydraTECH(TM) technology in improving GLP-1’s bioavailability, opening up a vast worldwide market

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug delivery platforms, just concluded its first dosing for its glucagon-peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) human pilot study #2, GLP-1-H24-2 (https://ibn.fm/74Pee). This follows the recent announcement of an applied research program to evaluate certain molecular characteristics of its patented DehydraTECH(TM) processed GLP-1 drug, semaglutide, related to its mode of action and performance. It also marks a significant milestone in the company’s 2024 research pipeline (https://ibn.fm/ilW5r).

At the beginning of the year, the company resolved to focus on GLP-1 studies for the calendar year, having shown positive results in an 8-week clinical study in 2023/24. This latest milestone followed its recent contract award and independent ethics review board approval in April.

The study will spot three arms, comparing 7 mg semaglutide dose formulations. The first arm used a positive control Rybelsus(R) swallowed tablet, while the second arm – due to be performed in late June – will feature DehydraTECH-semaglutide swallowed capsules. Nearly 5 weeks are required between doses to “wash-out” lingering quantities of drugs between study arms.

The last arm will, for the first time, utilize an in-mouth dissolvable DehydraTECH-semaglutide oral tablet. This study arm will investigate whether DehydraTECH-enhanced semaglutide can be absorbed at any level systemically through the sublingual/buccal tissues of the mouth and throat, and into the bloodstream, with fewer side effects than from swallowed pill administration. It will mostly avoid the stomach’s acidic environment, which seriously degrades GLP-1 drugs that are swallowed, resulting in exceptionally low blood absorption rates.

GLP-1 exhibits poor oral bioavailability, usually as little as 0.8%, despite having demonstrated the ability to address diabetes and weight loss. Lexaria, through its DehydraTECH technology, has proven to significantly improve this bioavailability.

Lexaria looks to follow through with this clinical study, and more, ultimately carving out a significant market share in the diabetes treatment market, projected to reach $134.1 billion by 2030. Its management is optimistic that this will be its biggest year yet, where all its efforts and investments will pay off.

“I am excited about this study; the Lexaria scientific team believes that a dissolvable oral tablet that delivers an effective fraction of semaglutide along with reduced side effects could potentially offer valuable benefits to the pharmaceutical industry that might lead to a higher likelihood of favorable strategic partnering with leading industry players in GLP-1,” noted Chris Bunka, Lexaria’s CEO (https://ibn.fm/nhPpb).

Growing EM Applications as America Adopts Ankle Monitors for Asylum Seekers

  • SuperCom, a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity solutions, is tapping into the growing use cases for electronic monitoring (“EM”) solutions globally
  • New adoption of the technology is seen in a move by the U.S. government to use ankle monitors to also track asylum seekers entering the country to help support and expedite their asylum process
  • For SuperCom, this is a further validation of the value of EM solutions, their versatility and overall effectiveness
  • SuperCom’s management anticipates a growth in the demand for its products as the conversation around these solutions continues to proliferate

SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB), a global leading provider of traditional and digital identity solutions offering advanced safety, identification, and security products and solutions to governments, is steadily advancing its technologies, primarily given the growing use case for electronic monitoring (“EM”) solutions globally. This stems from a deep understanding of the current global market for such solutions, which goes beyond only offender monitoring and also now covers tracking for migrant families seeking asylum in the U.S. The goal is to keep asylum seekers from skipping out on their required asylum hearings.

In previous administrations in the U.S., there was a push for the detainment of families in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) facilities, a move that faced backlash. In addition, scientific studies showed that detaining minors, even with their parents, could cause developmental damage. The public outcry prompted the current administration to explore better approaches to tackling the issue (https://ibn.fm/if4xs).

The U.S. government has been transitioning from family detention to adopting ankle bracelets and traceable cell phones. This laid the foundation for the new program, which leverages electronic monitoring technology while using curfews and expedited asylum screenings. In an article published by The New York Times, it was noted that this was in response to the growing migrant situation, with the country having recorded over 2.5 million migrant encounters at the southwest land border in the 2023 fiscal year alone.

The U.S. government’s adoption of EM within ICE has been geared toward keeping track of thousands of migrants and making rulings in a make-or-break step of the asylum process. SuperCom sees this move as further validation of the overall effectiveness, viability, and dependability of EM solutions. It also presents new opportunities that other governments worldwide can leverage to expedite huddles in their legal processes and track and hold accountable specific persons of interest.

SuperCom has made a name for itself by offering superior EM solutions and a whole suite to support them. With a focus on offenders of domestic violence, the company has proven itself on many occasions and in different countries globally, affirming the value of its products and services and the overall viability of EM solutions.

As the conversation about these solutions continues to proliferate, SuperCom anticipates potential growth in the demand for its products. In addition, as the solutions find their way into other application areas beyond offender monitoring, as is the case with the U.S. immigration program, the company anticipates that its offerings can address even more potential use cases.
