Propanc Biopharma Advances POP1 Drug Discovery Program

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 novembre 2019

Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (OTC: PPCB) (“Propanc” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company developing new cancer treatments for patients suffering from recurring and metastatic cancer, announced today that the POP1 research and drug discovery program has made significant advancements towards producing synthetic versions of the two proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen. With the aim of producing large quantities of trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen for commercial use, exhibiting minimal variation between lots and without sourcing the proenzymes from animals, the Company is undertaking a challenging research project in collaboration with the universities of Jaén and Granada, led by research scientist Mr. Aitor González, supported by Dr. Macarena Perán, Ph.D. and Dr. Julian Kenyon, M.D. as joint supervisors, representing the Universities and Propanc, respectively.
So far, the Company’s scientific researchers have developed a novel expression system. At the research laboratories at the universities of Jaén and Granada, scientific researchers are in the process of optimizing conditions to achieve high titers of recombinant trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen with this expression system. After western blotting analysis of cell extracts, they observed the cells are producing the proteins, and further sequence analysis will be completed in order to confirm the correct sequence of both proenzymes produced.
One specific objective of the project will be to synthesize by an in vivo system both proenzymes to produce crystalized proteins that could be maintained for long periods without suffering degradation, even in absence of refrigeration. This will be particularly useful for a longer shelf life as well as global distribution of the drug product, particularly in warmer climates and developing regions where refrigeration may not be available.

Customer Portfolios Announces The Portfolio Value Statement

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 novembre 2019

Customer Portfolios, a marketing technology leader that uses actionable insights and analytics to increase customer engagement and value, announces the Portfolio Value Statement (PVS) report, giving businesses a holistic view into the health of their customer file.
The PVS gives marketers a total view of the different segments within the customer database, their revenue contribution by channel, and whether or not they are currently engaged and marketable. By showing how the customer base is evolving, the PVS helps marketers determine where to invest their budgets to retain or reactivate customers, not just acquire new consumers. This view makes marketers better budgeters and decision makers. When marketing proposes its plan – and must defend budget and spend – a Portfolio Value Statement gives them a more compelling argument than ever before. For the first time, marketers can present a plan based on accurate forecasts for long term revenue that will grow the entire customer portfolio for years ahead. Viewing the health of the customer database as a whole and by segment shows marketers the value of each group and how speaking to them accordingly will impact the bottom line. The PVS breaks down customer portfolios into actionable, behavior-based segments.

L’acido bempedoico riduce il colesterolo senza influenzare negativamente il controllo glicemico

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 novembre 2019

L’acido bempedoico, in aggiunta a terapie ipolipemizzanti di background, riduce significativamente il colesterolo senza tuttavia influenzare negativamente il controllo glicemico. E’ quanto emerge da due analisi combinate di quattro trial clinici di Fase III sull’acido bempedoico che hanno coinvolto un totale di oltre 3.600 pazienti, e sono state presentate da Daiichi Sankyo all’American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions in corso a Philadelphia.Una delle analisi ha mostrato che l’acido bempedoico ha ridotto l’emoglobina A1c (HbA1c) dello 0.19% rispetto al placebo in pazienti diabetici trattati per 12 settimane.i L’HbA1 è un parametro di valutazione standard del controllo glicemico, usato nella gestione del diabete. L’analisi ha inoltre dimostrato che i pazienti trattati con acido bempedoico hanno sperimentato un numero minore di nuovi casi di diabete così come di episodi di iperglicemia, rispetto a quelli trattati con placebo.i L’analisi combinata suggerisce che l’acido bempedoico non ha un impatto negativo sul controllo glicemico in pazienti con e senza diabete, se aggiunto a una terapia ipolipemizzante stabile di background. Un’altra analisi ha dimostrato che in tutti e quattro gli studi di fase III, l’acido bempedoico riduce significativamente il colesterolo a bassa densità (C-LDL) nei pazienti con ipercolesterolemia, se aggiunto ad una terapia con statine alla massima dose tollerata. Nei soggetti trattati con terapia di background, l’acido bempedoico ha ridotto il C-LDL del 18% rispetto al placebo.ii Nei soggetti non trattati con terapia di background, l’acido bempedoico ha ridotto il C-LDL del 25% rispetto al placebo. L’acido bempedoico è in fase di sviluppo come trattamento addizionale in monosomministrazione giornaliera per quelle persone con ipercolesterolemia che non riescono a raggiungere i loro target di C-LDL e restano al alto rischio di eventi cardiovascolari come infarto o ictus, nonostante assumano terapie ipolipemizzanti orali ottimizzate.

Valent BioSciences Announces Launch of Global Soil Health Initiative

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 novembre 2019

Valent BioSciences (VBC) officially launched its new biorational soil health initiative today at the 4th Biostimulants World Congress in Barcelona. The launch follows more than four years of strategic investment including the acquisition of Mycorrhizal Applications in 2015, research and development, and business development to expand the company’s leading position in biological solutions for agriculture into the soil microbiome.In the months leading up to the launch, VBC made several moves to fortify its commitment to this new area of business. In addition to multiple acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and licensing agreements, the company opened its new state-of-the-art Biorational Research Center (BRC) last year in northern Illinois. The new facilities reflect a buildout of VBC’s research team to support soil health research and innovation. VBC also assembled a Soil Health Advisory Board to leverage knowledge from soil health experts across industry, academia, and basic research.Soil health is recognized to be important to the future health of our planet and a new frontier in agriculture. While the physical and chemical properties of soil are better understood, we are just beginning to understand the fundamental role microbes contribute to soil health. It is estimated that more than one billion microbes can exist in a single teaspoon of healthy soil.Central to the VBC soil health platform is a line of products under the brand name MycoApply®. These products are a scientifically selected consortium of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) species. AMF are soil-borne microbes that form a symbiotic relationship with about 80% of all plant species. By connecting to roots and forming filamentous strands called hyphae, mycorrhizae can extend the absorption area of plant root systems. AMF provide several benefits to the plant including increased water and nutrient uptake and abiotic stress mitigation. Mycorrhizal hyphae also produce a sticky glycoprotein called glomalin that forms the basis of stable soil structure by improving soil aggregation which results in improved stability, water penetration, and holding capacity. AMF are a cornerstone and indicator species of soil health but can be negatively impacted by soil disruption and intensive agricultural practices. Supplemental applications of AMF in combination with cultural practices such as cover crops and no-till programs promise to improve soil health while providing shorter-term crop health and yield benefits.
