New Horticulture Light Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 settembre 2019

Ceravision Limited, inventor of a new and unique scientific approach to horticulture lighting, today announced the results of trials undertaken over the last six months with a group of leading horticulture businesses.Results from independently conducted trials with Bridge Farm Group on licenced industrial hemp have demonstrated an increase in yield and potency of 40% compared to other lighting solutions. Trials elsewhere on salad crops have also revealed benefits – faster growth, fewer pesticides and less waste.Exploiting its innovative plasma light technology, Ceravision’s new and patented approach to horticultural lighting is based on the ability to produce unique light spectra with unparalleled levels of UV-A and UV-B.This UV spectral range is crucial for indoor cultivation. UV can benefit plants as it enhances the production of the secondary metabolites that act as ‘sunscreens’ and boost aroma, flavonoids, terpenes, colour, nutritional and medicinal values. UV can also improve defences against insect and virus attacks and accelerated pollination.Ceravision’s plasma UV420 grow-light is designed to complement traditional PAR grow-lights. With a spectrum concentrated from 280 to 550nm, it delivers the UV-A and UV-B not transmitted through greenhouse glass and not available from traditional PAR lights.

LineaRx and Takis/Evvivax Anti-Cancer Vaccine Candidates Demonstrate Tumor Reduction

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 settembre 2019

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) (“Applied DNA”), a leader in large-scale PCR-based DNA manufacturing, announced today that LineaRx, Inc. (“LineaRx”), its majority-owned subsidiary focused on next-generation biotherapeutics, and its collaborators Takis/Evvivax have completed pre-clinical animal studies of two vaccine candidates produced with linear DNA. Tests of both vaccines in mouse models demonstrated their ability to eliminate tumors in vivo, and to potentially prevent initial occurrence.
Evvivax S.R.L. designed a synthetic gene sequence to produce immunity in companion animals, directed against the protein telomerase (TERT), which is overexpressed in 85% of all mammalian cancers, whereas Takis S.R.L. designed a neoantigen-based cancer vaccine (TK), as a proof-of-concept of personalized immunology. For the studies, the TERT and TK based vaccines were produced in linear DNA form by LineaRx. Here is a summary of the recently completed studies performed in vivo: Previous results from Phase 1 of the collaboration’s Joint Development Agreement (JDA) confirmed immunogenicity in mice that were vaccinated with linear DNA against the human protein telomerase. The results reported herein are from the Phase 2 of the JDA using mice implanted with murine colon cancer.
In the prophylactic use of the telomerase vaccine, wherein vaccination is done before addition of tumor cell lines to the mice, transplanted tumors were cleared within 10 days.
In the therapeutic application using either TERT or TK linear DNA vaccine application, cancer cells were introduced and allowed to grow before administration of the vaccine. The successful reduction of total tumor mass was accomplished in conjunction with antibodies that targeted PD-1 and CTLA4. These antibodies, known as Checkpoint Inhibitors, are commonly used in oncology strategies that rely upon immunotherapy. In this setting the tumor cells were reduced significantly within 30 days. The strategy of the Takis TK neoantigen vaccine uses unique multiple-target antigenic epitopes that have been identified from the tumor of a human patient. The linear DNA can utilize the genes for several of the most effective universal antigens such as TERT, or neoantigens that are more personalized to the patient.

ING publishes first Terra progress report

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 settembre 2019

ING today published the first progress report on Terra, ING’s approach to steer its €600 billion lending book in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement to keep global warming to well-below two degrees. With the Terra approach, ING aims to be a positive force in the fight against climate change. The progress report presents ING’s pathway towards climate alignment in the sectors most responsible for climate change and is intended to be published every year.The disclosure addresses developments and climate alignment for the sectors: power generation, fossil fuels, automotive, shipping, aviation, steel, cement, residential mortgages and commercial real estate. These are the sectors in ING’s portfolio that are most responsible for greenhouse gas emissions. In a Climate Alignment Dashboard (CAD) the report presents which sectors are on track for climate alignment and where work is still in progress. This climate change disclosure is a first for banks.Methodologies and standards are not yet finalised for each sector, but ING will continue to work with peers and sectors towards creating these. Knowing where we are today is a vital part of being able to chart a course for the low-carbon world we need in the future. ING aims to publish the climate alignment results for all sectors starting next year.Ralph Hamers, CEO of ING said: “With this first Terra progress report, we are living up to our promise to transparently deliver results on measuring climate impact, setting targets and steering our portfolio. I strongly believe that we can only be successful in tackling the climate crisis if we all work together. That’s why we looked beyond ING and are building partnerships and coalitions that are bigger than just us. We’re working with other banks and governments to set a global industry standard for measuring and aligning our loan books with climate benchmarks. This unity is the key to being effective as a sector and being able to make a real impact.”

Alipay Ant Forest Named UN Champion of the Earth

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 settembre 2019

Alipay Ant Forest, a green initiative on the world’s leading payment and lifestyle platform Alipay, has been awarded the United Nation’s highest environmental honor – the “UN Champions of the Earth” award – for inspiring over half a billion people to take action in their daily lives to live greener lifestyles and help protect the environment through the power of digital technology.Launched in the Alipay app in August 2016, the Ant Forest green initiative encourages users to adopt low-carbon activities — such as paying utility bills online, and walking or taking buses to work instead of driving — in their daily lives. Such behavior is counted and converted into virtual “green energy points” that accumulate to grow a virtual “tree” in the user’s mobile phone. With enough energy points, the virtual tree is converted into a real one and planted by Alipay and its philanthropic partners in desertification areas that need reforesting. In turn, this tree-planting initiative has inspired users to further adopt low-carbon and environment-friendly behavior.
By August 2019, Alipay Ant Forest has attracted over 500 million users, resulting in 122 million trees planted in arid areas in China, and the avoidance of 7.9 million tons of carbon emission. It’s influence has also traveled beyond China. Inspired by Alipay Ant Forest, the Philippines’ leading mobile wallet GCash introduced GCash Forest on its App in June 2019, enabling local users to contribute to reforestation and environmental preservation by adopting low carbon activities in their daily.
