Strengthening the position of Avinor Oslo Airport as an international hub

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 giugno 2018

Oslo Lufthavn Avinor has decided to expand the area after the passport control at Oslo Airport, which will provide a significantly better service to people travelling to and from countries outside the Schengen Area. Construction work starts in early October this year and the expansion will be completed in the second quarter of 2022.
– This expansion is important for developing Oslo Airport as an international hub. It will provide increased capacity and improve conditions for our passengers and airlines, as well as improving the framework conditions for Norwegian travel, tourism and business – which is an important part of Avinors strategy, says CEO of Avinor, Dag Falk-Petersen.The current capacity of the area for traffic outside of the Schengen Area is 5.5 million passengers per year, and following the expansion it will be approximately 8 million.
– In recent years, traffic to and from countries outside of the Schengen Area has experienced considerably greater growth than traffic within it. It is absolutely essential that we facilitate this traffic by building good and suitable infrastructure. It will increase Norway’s competitiveness and provide considerable economic benefits, says Falk-Petersen.The work on the expansion will start on Monday, October 1st and disruption to travellers will be kept to a minimum.
– After six years of building the new Oslo Airport, we have learned a great deal about how to simultaneously build and operate an airport. The knowledge we have gained will be applied to this expansion project. We should be able to achieve this without there being any noticeable impact on travellers, says Airport Director, Øyvind Hasaas.
There will be a total of 14 aircraft parking spaces, four of which will be flexible gates that can handle traffic from areas both inside and outside the Schengen Area. The extension will provide a total area of 39,700 square metres for travellers to countries outside the Schengen Area.
– The current area will be extended, with new aircraft parking spaces that are suitable for larger planes as well as new commercial areas. In total, this will give us the capacity necessary to be a top European airport for travellers, airlines and other partners, says Hasaas.The expansion also includes adaptations for US Preclearance, but a prerequisite for realising such a solution is a binding participation from relevant airlines and a bilateral agreement between the United States and Norway.The total budget for the extension is NOK 3.3 billion and is financed by Avinor. The ground works will start in the fourth quarter of 2018.Avinor owns and operates Norway’s main airport, Oslo Airport, which is an important communications hub in Norway with approximately 25 million travellers per year.

Novel Non-Addictive Opioid Described at CPDD Annual Meeting in San Diego

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 giugno 2018

A novel opioid compound that targets all three pain receptors in the brain with no addiction potential was described this week at the CPDD Annual Meeting.During the symposium “Next Generation Analgesics,” led by Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Lawrence Toll, Ph.D., co-founder and chief neuropharmacologist of Phoenix PharmaLabs, described the drug. His talk “PPL-103: A kappa partial agonist with potent antinociceptive activity and low abuse potential” focused on the promising success that has been achieved in a large number of published, as well as non-published, in vivo studies to date.
All opioids on the market today bind to the mu receptor in the brain and then aggressively stimulate that receptor. The mu receptor produces euphoria that leads to abuse and addiction. PPL-103 is a patented analog that binds strongly to all three opioid receptors in the brain (mu, kappa and delta) and then partially stimulates those receptors in a more balanced manner. This partial stimulation derives potent analgesic benefit from all three receptors, but is not sufficiently strong to produce the serious opioid side-effects associated with any single receptor. This results in a first-ever opiate analgesic that appears to be non-addicting and free of all significant dangerous side effects.

Oragenics, Inc. Announces Peer-Reviewed Publication Detailing Discovery of OG716 for C. difficile infections

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 giugno 2018

Oragenics, Inc. (NYSE American: OGEN) (the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company, today announced the publication of a research paper entitled “OG716: designing a fit-for-purpose lantibiotic for the treatment of Clostridium difficile infections” in PLOS ONE, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science.Researchers sought to discover a lead candidate for the treatment of Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) based on a second-generation library of over 300 variants of the lantibiotic Mutacin 1140 (MU1140). MU1140 remains an attractive lantibiotic due to its novel mechanism of action that may limit the development of drug resistance. In the study, researchers selected eight top performing compounds based on testing for superior potency, solubility, manufacturability, and physicochemical and/or metabolic stability in biologically-relevant systems and compared them to Oragenics’ previous lead compound, OG253. The best performing candidates in vitro were further evaluated orally using the Golden Syrian hamster model of C. difficile associated Diarrhea (CDAD). In vivo testing ultimately identified OG716 as the lead compound over first generation OG253, demonstrating 100% survival rate with no relapse at 3 weeks post infection.“Lantibiotics remain an untapped avenue for the discovery and development of novel antibiotics, particularly MU1140, which has the potential address the increasing problems of drug resistance. In this second-generation study, we identified OG716 as our new lead compound for the treatment of C. difficile infections. OG716 has a comparable microbiology profile and similar potency to OG253, while effectively simplifying the production process and clinical administration compared to OG253,” commented Dr. Alan Joslyn, Chief Executive Officer and President of Oragenics. “C. difficile infections have become an increasing health risk worldwide as new drug resistant strains have appeared, causing an increase in mortality rates by more than 400%. We believe that OG716 holds the potential to be an effective treatment for C. difficile while reducing the risk of developing drug resistance and look forward to submitting an Investigational New Drug application in 2019.” Clostridium difficile is an infection causing colitis by producing toxins that damage the lining of the colon. It is considered an urgent threat by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with an incidence rate of 500,000 infections per year and a mortality rate of 29,000 deaths per year C. difficile infections, which are one of the most frequent hospital-acquired infections, have more recently affected people traditionally not considered high risk, triggering an increased health risk amongst the broader population.

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 giugno 2018

Entersekt, an innovator in push-based authentication and app security, has opened a new office in Atlanta to support the company’s continued growth and serve as the organization’s North American headquarters. The growth in North America comes as financial institutions and other outside industries seek innovative, user-friendly methods of authenticating sensitive data and accounts. The new headquarters will provide a hub for building key business partnerships and acquiring new talent as Entersekt continues to grow. On the heels of countless high profile data breaches over the past few years, Entersekt has identified North America as a key market with both immense challenges and potential when it comes to authentication. Today, hackers have managed to expose billions of consumer data points to the dark web through synthetic identities and advanced account takeover fraud techniques, impacting millions of consumers and the companies that provide them with key digital services. “Financial institutions, healthcare providers and other enterprises are in need of solutions that are easily integrated into the organization’s existing technology while also providing customers with the necessary level of protection and convenience they expect,” said Sherif Samy, Senior Vice President of North America. “Entersekt’s solutions provide just that with our mobile-based authentication services designed specifically to provide strong security in a user-friendly interface.”Entersekt provides products that leverage the power of a consumer’s personal mobile device as a trusted second factor of authentication. This approach combines the power of digital certificate technology with the convenience of mobile phones, providing institutions and their customers with robust protection to combat account takeover fraud.Expansion into the North American market speaks directly to Entersekt’s strong customer growth and commitment to providing the highest level of service. The fintech is gaining a firm foothold in the market, with key deployments of its technology live at financial institutions, regional banks, and healthcare providers. Entersekt has established solid alliances in the Atlanta region by partnering with significant market players like FIS and Equifax, which have licensed Entersekt’s Transakt product to serve as an additional layer of security for online and mobile services.Entersekt has chosen the 7000 Central Park building in Sandy Springs, Ga., to house its North American operations. The company’s growing North American team includes experts in the areas of mobile security, consumer and device identity, multi-factor authentication, and commerce enablement.

Invaluable Secures U.S. Patent Allowing It to Consolidate Online Bidding across the Auction House Industry

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 giugno 2018

Invaluable, the world’s leading online marketplace for fine art, antiques and collectibles, today announced it has secured a U.S. Utility Patent that paves the way for the company to consolidate and streamline online bidding technology across the auction industry.
Invaluable CEO Rob Weisberg said the patent recognizes the unique live auction bidding console technology developed and managed by Invaluable and offers intellectual property protections from any U.S. companies. Invaluable has applied for the same protections internationally; that application is pending.“I consider it a game-changer for our company and for auction houses everywhere, setting Invaluable apart as the go-to platform to consolidate the auction industry,” said Weisberg.
The Invaluable technology aggregates all online live auction marketplaces and funnels bids to a single auction house clerk utilizing one clerking console powered by Invaluable. This integration spares auction houses from having to use multiple clerks to take bids from several online live marketplaces and sort them in real time during a sale and manage them post-sale. It gives auction houses the ability to efficiently scale up their online sales – vital for growth in the challenging and competitive auction industry, said Weisberg.The patent award from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office came after a four-and a half-year application process, said D.J. Charles, the company’s Chief Technology Officer. Sotheby’s and eBay have used Invaluable’s console technology to power their live auction sales for the last three years, said Charles.
Additionally, Invaluable has filed a secondary “continuation-in-part” application to extend the patent on live auction bidding technology to further include timed auctions, said Charles.

Having already deployed Vista Cinema software across its territories, Nordisk’s decision to invest in Cinema Intelligence was boosted by integration with Vista Cinema’s Film Programming that now includes Film Manager.

Nordisk’s two film programming teams will use Cinema Intelligence to make major improvements to business operations, including centralizing showtime scheduling across its territories. It will also benefit from the new Analytics module that provides a full overview of business performance, complementing past performance indicators with future-view forecasting to enable actionable insights that benefit the business.Claudiu Tanasescu, CEO, Cinema Intelligence, says he’s excited to welcome Nordisk Film cinemas to the Cinema Intelligence family, “I was very impressed with the professionalism of the Nordisk team and I believe that Cinema Intelligence will be a great addition to their business intelligence solutions. With the help of Cinema Intelligence, Nordisk Film is truly realising a data-driven vision across the organization using our Machine Learning algorithms and powerful analytics solutions.”Jan Petersen, CTO, Nordisk, says, “At Nordisk we have monitored the progress of Cinema Intelligence and have always been impressed with the drive and motivation that Claudiu and his team are bringing to the cinema industry.
