Exclusive Insurance Program for ASHI Members

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 gennaio 2020

Today, the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and InspectorPro Insurance announced their insurance program for ASHI members: InspectorPro Insurance with the ASHI Advantage.With the ASHI Advantage, ASHI members can receive exclusive insurance benefits not otherwise available in the marketplace, including new inspector and member discounts, enhanced inland marine (equipment) coverage, and free extended reporting period (ERP) endorsements (“tail” coverage).“InspectorPro’s a fantastic company. We interviewed several companies and decided on InspectorPro simply because of their management system, their employees, and their product that they offer,” said Scott Patterson, Immediate Past President of ASHI.The program’s exclusive advantages enable ASHI home inspectors to better protect themselves and their businesses from insurance claims with comprehensive and cost-effective errors and omissions (E&O) and general liability (GL) coverage.“I highly recommend that ASHI members consider the ASHI insurance program because we partnered with InspectorPro, who has a history of being an innovator in the space. They’ve worked with home inspectors for years, and they know the needs of our members,” said James Thomas, Executive Director of ASHI.ASHI and InspectorPro hope that the discounts and coverage available through the ASHI Advantage will help more members gain access to better insurance protection.
“This program is first in class as far as home inspector’s insurance goes. So, if you’ve been on the fence, or if you’ve made the business decision not to have this type of insurance, you may want to reconsider after looking at all the benefits and the value that you get from this program,” said Mike Wagner, President of ASHI.

Psilocybin program for major depressive disorder

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 26 novembre 2019

Usona Institute has received Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for psilocybin in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). Breakthrough Therapy Designation establishes FDA’s organizational commitment to promoting an efficient development program for psilocybin in MDD.The designation of psilocybin as a Breakthrough Therapy for MDD acknowledges both the unmet medical need in this broad population and the potential for significant improvements over existing therapies, and bolsters Usona’s mission to advance this revolutionary treatment paradigm toward new drug approval.“The results from previous studies clearly demonstrate the remarkable potential for psilocybin as a treatment in MDD patients, which Usona is now seeking to confirm in its own clinical trials. What is truly groundbreaking is FDA’s rightful acknowledgement that MDD, not just the much smaller treatment-resistant depression population, represents an unmet medical need and that the available data suggest that psilocybin may offer a substantial clinical improvement over existing therapies,” says Charles Raison, MD, Director of Clinical and Translational Research at Usona. “Given that there is so much complexity with psilocybin and that Usona is charting new ground, these interactions will ensure that Usona and the FDA are aligned in approaching the development program with acceptable best practices.” The new status follows the recent launch of Usona’s Phase 2 clinical trial, PSIL201, which will include approximately 80 participants at seven study sites around the US. Two of the seven study sites are currently recruiting, with the others expected to be active by the first quarter of 2020.

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.

New Program to Serve Newborns With Complex Medical Needs Discharged From NICUs

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 ottobre 2019

Totally Kids Rehabilitation Hospital announced today the opening of a unique program expressly designed to treat newborns with medically complex conditions upon discharge from a hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.Dr. Brandstater explains that many newborns who come out of a NICU are diagnosed as having failure to thrive. Children with this diagnosis usually don’t meet the recognized standards of growth due to being undernourished or being unable to process enough calories. Children who fail to thrive often have other complications that stall their normal development. Unless those complications are treated in a timely manner, children may not be able to recover and/or achieve developmental milestones that would allow them to lead a normal life.
Historically faced with this challenge, parents have found themselves left with the choice of leaving their child in the NICU for a longer period of time than optimally beneficial, placing their child in a clinic or becoming dependent on home health care. Now there is a better alternative available.
The new program at Totally Kids provides 24-hour care and customized therapy to ensure that each child reaches the age-appropriate developmental milestones that give them the best chance to live normal lives and minimize long-term effects. “This type of intensive rehabilitation speeds up the development that has been missing in these children, which, if dealt with in a timely manner gives them the best chance of success,” says Dr. Brandstater.To serve these children, the hospital has assembled a multidisciplinary staff that is highly trained to work with children who require intensive rehabilitation and special medical care. Upon admission this clinical team evaluates and assesses the child’s neurological status, functional status, developmental levels, and nursing and medical needs. The team then develops a customized rehabilitation program that focuses on the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, play therapy, respiratory therapy and child development.
The launch of this new program comes on the heels of last month’s announcement that Totally Kids had received all regulatory approvals to expand its license to provide early intervention care and therapy services for infants and young children—ages birth to 3 years—with complex physical rehabilitation needs. As a result, the hospital now has the capacity to serve patients with these needs, from birth to age 21. Similar to the hospital’s highly acclaimed pediatric acute rehabilitation program, these younger patients may include, but not be limited to, those with neurological illness and injuries, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic injuries, burns, traumas and late effects of cancer treatment.

75th LIFT Homeownership Program to New Jersey

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 17 settembre 2019

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC), NeighborWorks® America and its network member New Jersey Community Capital today announced that the 75th LIFT program, designed to boost homeownership, will expand to Essex County, N.J., this fall. With a $5 million philanthropic commitment by the Wells Fargo Foundation, the NeighborhoodLIFT program will create more than 180 Essex County homeowners by offering $20,000 down payment assistance grants that require completion of HUD-certified homebuyer education.
The NeighborhoodLIFT program for Essex County follows Wells Fargo’s announcement in June of an evolution in the company’s philanthropic strategy which includes a $1 billion commitment over the next six years to address the U.S. housing affordability crisis. “NeighborhoodLIFT is a great example of a housing affordability solution Wells Fargo is bringing to communities across the U.S.,” said Greg White, Wells Fargo Community Bank’s Northern New Jersey region bank president. “That’s because nearly one-third of U.S. households spend more than 30% of their income on housing costs. Through the NeighborhoodLIFT program, Wells Fargo is providing down payment assistance to hardworking families and individuals in Essex County so they can realize the dream of homeownership. This provides them with the opportunity to build wealth and live in safe, stable, and affordable homes.” Overall, Wells Fargo and NeighborWorks America have teamed to implement 74 LIFT program launches across the U.S., with Essex County being the 75th. Since 2012, LIFT programs have assisted nearly 22,000 homeowners, in nearly 900 municipalities, who have purchased more than $3.36 billion in real estate supported by a total investment of $475 million by Wells Fargo. Mortgage loans made through LIFT programs are not exclusive to Wells Fargo.

Stratics Networks Announces Free Disaster Communication Program

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 giugno 2019

Stratics Networks, a leading provider of cloud communications and the inventors of Ringless Voicemail and IVR Polling, today announced the introduction of their Disaster Communication Program. This program will offer free emergency messaging for qualified groups in life-threatening disasters to aid in crucial relief coordination.“Getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time is absolutely crucial in a disaster situation. As a provider of a technology that can aid in emergency communications and as a responsible member of the community, we feel that we have a duty to help wherever we can,” said Stratics’ Director of Communications, Chris Collins.
Stratics Networks has offered all of its products for free as part of its comprehensive Disaster Communication Program, including offering its proprietary Ringless Voicemail technology, which allows messages to be inserted directly into a voicemail without placing a direct call. Organizations can also choose to use Stratics Networks Voice Broadcasting technology and Bulk SMS Delivery technology. Additionally, Stratics has enabled government agencies and NGOs to collect mass real-time data using PrecisePoll™, an advanced outbound IVR system, capable of making over a hundred thousand phone calls per minute.“Stratics Networks knows all too well what emergencies look like. Unfortunately, we have had friends, family and colleagues in areas that have been affected by disaster. We understand landline phones are often the last viable communication method that remains active in a disaster, as landlines draw their power directly through the telephone infrastructure and not from the outside power lines. When power fails, TVs stop working, the internet goes down and even mobile towers can fail. Copper-based landline phones should always remain in every house for this reason,” said Stratics Networks’ CEO.
