BioMedNewsBreaks — PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) in Process of Responding to Emergency Request for IV Suramin from African Health Ministry

April 17, 2024 12:44:11

PaxMedica (NASDAQ: PXMD), a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing treatments for neurological disorders, has received an urgent request from the Ministry of Health (“MOH”) of Malawi requesting emergency access to IV suramin. According to the announcement, Malawi officials requested the suramin in efforts to avert a potential humanitarian crisis brought on by dwindling supplies of drugs used in that region of Africa; the drug is used specifically to treat the most severe form of African sleeping sickness. Last week, PaxMedica completed execution of its three pivotal registration/validation batches of PAX-101 (an IV form of suramin) in preparation for a future NDA submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) as an orphan designated drug. With that in mind, PaxMedia has brought this emergency request to the FDA’s attention to determine potential impact, if any, on the company’s development program and NDA submission plans for PAX-101. “Receiving this request from the Ministry of Health of Malawi serves to emphasize, not only the challenging situation faced by the countries in the most vulnerable zone for the fatal disease, TBr HAT, it speaks to the continued need for suramin as the standard of care in treating stage 1 of the infection, using what’s known as the Malawi dosing protocol, which they have used in an effort to save lives in that region for nearly 100 years,” said PaxMedica chair and CEO Howard Weisman in the press release. “[The] FDA has agreed that having more than one global manufacturer of drugs like suramin could provide public health benefit by creating multiple supply chains and would help ensure a steady supply of the drug product. . . . PaxMedica is in the process of responding to the Malawi Ministry of Health’s request and is in contact with regulatory authorities in both the U.S. and Malawi with an intention to help with today’s emergency, as well as to work with the FDA to determine the best path forward to submit the PAX-101 NDA for regulatory approval, as well as to potentially qualify for a Priority Review Voucher under the Neglected Tropical Disease Priority Review Voucher Program, which could provide PaxMedica resources to help ensure a steady supply of suramin to these endemic regions.”

April 12, 2024 12:24:33

Sigyn Therapeutics (OTCQB: SIGY), a medical technology that creates medical solutions to treat life-threatening conditions, is developing a portfolio of technologies, including Sigyn Therapy(TM), ChemoPrep(TM), ChemoPure(TM) and ImmunePrep(TM), which have each been designed to overcome a current limitation in healthcare. “As it relates to pathogen-associated disorders, the company has advanced Sigyn Therapy(TM) from concept through product development and subsequently completed five invitro blood purification studies, which validated the ability of Sigyn Therapy(TM) to extract 12 different therapeutic targets from human blood plasma. As a result of these study outcomes, Sigyn Therapy is a candidate to treat a wide range of pathogen-associated disorders that are not addressed with drug therapies. The company also completed animal studies at the University of Michigan and then collaborated with a leading dialysis organization to establish the treatment protocol, site locations and principal investigators for first-in-human studies of Sigyn Therapy,” a recent article reads. “We believe Sigyn Therapy has an unprecedented capability to simultaneously clear deadly inflammatory mediators and pathogenic sources of life-threatening inflammation from human blood,” Sigyn Therapeutics CEO Jim Joyce is quoted as saying.

About Sigyn Therapeutics Inc.

Sigyn Therapeutics is a development-stage, medical-technology company headquartered in San Diego, California. The company’s therapeutic candidates are designed to overcome clearly defined limitations in healthcare. These include the ImmunePrep(TM) platform, ChemoPrep(TM), ChemoPure(TM) and Sigyn Therapy(TM). ImmunePrep is a development-stage commercialization platform to enhance and extend the performance of immunotherapeutic antibodies, which account for nine of the top 15 best-selling cancer treatment drugs. ChemoPrep is designed to optimize the delivery of chemotherapy, the most commonly administered drug to treat cancer, while ChemoPure extracts off-target chemotherapy from the bloodstream to reduce patient toxicity. Sigyn Therapy is a novel blood purification technology being advanced to treat pathogen-associated inflammatory disorders. To date, in vitro studies have demonstrated the ability of Sigyn Therapy to reduce the circulating prevalence of 12 different pathogen and inflammatory-disease targets from human blood plasma. Based on these outcomes, candidate treatment indications include community-acquired pneumonia, endotoxemia, drug-resistant viral and bacterial infections, and sepsis, the leading cause of hospital deaths in the United States. First-in-human feasibility studies of Sigyn Therapy plan to enroll end-stage renal disease (“ESRD”) patients with endotoxemia and concurrent inflammation, which are highly prevalent and associated with increased mortality in the ESRD population.

April 9, 2024 14:40:22

HeartBeam(NASDAQ: BEAT), a medical technology company focused on transforming cardiac care through the power of personalized insights, is presenting new data at the European Heart Rhythm Association (“EHRA”) Conference. According to the announcement, this is the first scientific presentation on the company’s deep learning algorithm: HeartBeam AI. The data demonstrates that applying the company’s artificial intelligence (“AI”) algorithms to vectorcardiography (“VCG”) showed considerably improved performance in the detection of atrial flutter over single-lead electrocardiograms (“ECGs”) and similar performance to 12-lead ECGs, the standard for diagnosing atrial flutter. The company noted that the data indicates an opportunity for a VCG-based algorithm that offers arrhythmia detection capabilities beyond what is currently available today and that fills gaps in healthcare inequality when obtaining a 12-lead ECG can be challenging. “The intent of our AI program is to leverage our novel VECG platform to unlock detection and prediction capabilities currently limited to healthcare facilities and make them readily accessible and available to the patient, and this new data is a clear example of what we can accomplish,” said HeartBeam CEO and founder Branislav Vajdic, PhD, in the press release. “As we continue to expand our artificial intelligence capabilities, we look forward to demonstrating how the combination of our data rich 3D VECG platform with HeartBeam AI has the potential to transform how cardiac health is managed in the future.”

BioMedNewsBreaks – Scinai Immunotherapeutics Ltd. (NASDAQ: SCNI), Scinai Bioservices Enter MSA with Ayana Pharma

April 8, 2024 13:47:41

Scinai Immunotherapeutics (NASDAQ: SCNI), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of inflammation and immunology (“I&I”) biological products, through its contract development and manufacturing organization (“CDMO”) business unit, Scinai Bioservices, has signed a five-year Master Service Agreement (“MSA”) with Ayana Pharma Ltd. As outlined by the MSA, Scinai will provide drug-development and cGMP manufacturing services to Ayana; the agreement is forecast to bring in at least $1.8 million in revenues for Scinai over the next five years. Ayana officials noted that the company had done an extensive search looking for a CDMO and was “attracted” to Scinai’s experience in biopharmaceutical drug development and manufacturing for clinical trials as well as its customer responsiveness and track record for meeting stringent international regulatory requirements. Company officials also appreciated the pristine condition of Scinai’s modern and highly equipped laboratories and clean rooms. “This five-year contract validates our strategic decision to create two business units, one focused on providing CDMO services and the other on drug development of an innovative pipeline of biologic therapeutic products under license from the Max Planck Society and the University Medical Center Gottingen, Germany,” said Scinai Immunotherapeutics CEO Amir Reichman in the press release. “This important CDMO contract with Ayana joins additional contracts already signed with other clients by our CDMO unit, all of which are generating revenues, offsetting fixed costs and allowing for rapid growth of our business.”

Researchers Link Hormone Treatments to Heightened Risk of Brain Tumors

April 8, 2024 10:05:00

Scientists at the National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety in France recently linked the use of hormone treatments by women to a heightened risk of women developing benign brain tumors. During their research, they determined that prolonged use of some progestogen drugs was associated with a higher risk of meningioma.

This sentiment isn’t shared by all, however, with one leading expert noting that while the risk of meningioma was higher in women who took the…

BioMedNewsBreaks — PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) Developing Robust Product Lineup to Address ASD, Associated Neurodevelopmental Conditions

April 5, 2024 11:57:32

PaxMedica (NASDAQ: PXMD) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel anti-purinergic therapies (“APTs”) for the treatment of autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) and other serious conditions with intractable neurologic symptoms. The company is on a promising path to address the unmet medical needs of ASD, bringing hope to millions. “ASD is a developmental disorder affecting how individuals interact with other people, behavior, communication, and learning. This disorder can be diagnosed at any age, but symptoms often appear in the first two years of life. There is currently no approved pharmacologic treatment targeting the cause and symptoms. Current treatments only address the condition’s symptoms rather than targeting the pathophysiology itself,” a recent article explains. “PaxMedica is developing a robust lineup of products aimed at addressing ASD and associated neurodevelopmental conditions. Its flagship product under development holds promise in mitigating or even easing some of the most challenging factors of ASD, potentially facilitating smoother integration of autistic individuals into social settings and enhancing their quality of life. At the forefront of PaxMedica’s initiatives are PAX-101 and PAX-102, leveraging the company’s exclusive source of suramin sodium, a broad-acting anti-purinergic therapy with a century-long history.”

Astiva Health Inc. — Bridging Healthcare Gaps with Proactive, Culturally Responsive Solutions

April 5, 2024 09:35:00
  • A Brookings Institution report indicates significant racial disparities in access to health coverage and in health outcomes
  • Astiva Health is focused on reshaping the landscape of personalized and comprehensive healthcare
  • The company carefully considers needs of its members, creates plans that feature cultural strategies for diverse ethnic groups

The company recognizes the diverse challenges within key communities and strives to bridge healthcare gaps through proactive and culturally responsive solutions.

“In the United States, there are significant racial disparities in access to health coverage and in health outcomes.

Spotlight on Disparities in Pediatric Healthcare Access

April 3, 2024 10:05:00

As of 2019, congenital heart defects affected roughly 1.3 million individuals in America. Mild heart defects are shown to present in at least eight of every one thousand babies. Experts believe that about one in four infants born with these defects need intervention in their first 12 months of life to survive. Now, new research has determined that children in heavily polluted areas classified as economically and socially deprived were almost 50% more likely to suffer from congenital heart defects as compared to those from less polluted and less deprived areas.

This comes after research by the American Heart Association observed a possible link between severe heart defects and…

BioMedNewsBreaks – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) Announces Positive Preclinical Data Supporting NPRL2 Gene Therapy

April 2, 2024 12:52:04

Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX) is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing treatments for patients with cancer and diabetes. The company today announced that its research collaborators have published positive preclinical data for the NPRL2 tumor suppressor gene, utilizing Genprex’s non-viral Oncoprex(R) Delivery System, in KRAS/STK11 mutant anti-PD1 resistant non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) in a humanized mouse model. “These positive preclinical data are very encouraging and support NPRL2 gene therapy as a potential treatment for a sub-group of NSCLC in which patients traditionally are resistant to existing therapies,” said Rodney Varner, president, chairman and CEO at Genprex. “We believe this data could support the potential for a new drug candidate in our pipeline, and it also provides further evidence that the Oncoprex(R) Delivery System has the ability to be successful using genes other than the TUSC2 gene we are already using in clinical trials with Reqorsa(R).”

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. Genprex’s oncology program utilizes its systemic, non-viral Oncoprex(R) Delivery System, which encapsulates the gene-expressing plasmids using lipid-based nanoparticles in a lipoplex form. The resultant product is administered intravenously, where it is taken up by tumor cells that then express tumor suppressor proteins that were deficient in the tumor. The company’s lead product candidate, Reqorsa(R) Immunogene Therapy (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated in three clinical trials as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) and small cell lung cancer (“SCLC”). Each of Genprex’s three lung cancer clinical programs has received a Fast Track Designation from the FDA for the treatment of that patient population, and its SCLC program has received an FDA Orphan Drug Designation. Genprex’s diabetes gene therapy approach is comprised of a novel infusion process that uses an AAV vector to deliver Pdx1 and MafA genes directly to the pancreas. In models of type 1 diabetes, GPX-002 transforms alpha cells in the pancreas into functional beta-like cells, which can produce insulin but may be distinct enough from beta cells to evade the body’s immune system. In a similar approach, GPX-002 for type 2 diabetes, where autoimmunity is not at play, is believed to rejuvenate and replenish exhausted beta cells. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.Genprex.com.

BioMedNewsBreaks – CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP) Releases FY 2023 Financial Report, Corporate Update

April 2, 2024 12:23:18

CNS Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CNSP), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel treatments for primary and metastatic cancers in the brain and central nervous system, has released financial results for the full year ending Dec. 31, 2023; the company also reported on corporate and clinical development achievement for the year. Highlights of the report included that Berubicin, the company’s lead program, has passed preplanned interim futility analysis milestones with a recommendation to proceed without modification into a potentially pivotal glioblastoma multiforme (“GBM”) study, and enrollment for the Berubicin study has been completed with topline data expected in first half of 2025. These steps are key as the company focuses on evaluating whether Berubicin has potential to address GBM, the most aggressive type of brain cancer, which has an average survival of only 14 to 16 months after diagnosis and no cure. “There remains a tremendous unmet medical need for an effective treatment for GBM, and we are dedicated to advancing this important program forward to bring much needed hope for patients,” said CNS Pharmaceuticals CEO John Climaco in the press release. “Over the course of 2023, we made significant progress with our lead development program, Berubicin, having recently achieved four primary objectives toward which we were actively working: maintain a rapid pace of enrollment to reach our preplanned interim analysis; complete planned enrollment; bolster buy-in from investigators; and expand our board indicating a strong support system from industry leaders. In addition to reaching complete enrollment, we have also successfully completed the interim futility analysis and received a recommendation from the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board to continue the study without modification, which we believe is a monumental step towards our objective of seeing Berubicin approved.”

About Processa Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Processa is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing the Next Generation Chemotherapy (“NGC”) drugs to improve the safety and efficacy of cancer treatment. By combining Processa’s novel oncology pipeline with proven cancer-killing active molecules and Processa’s Regulatory Science Approach as well as experience in defining Optimal Dosage Regimens for FDA approvals, Processa not only will be providing better therapy options to cancer patients but also increase the probability of FDA approval for its NGC drugs following an efficient path to approval. The company’s approach to drug development, based on more than 30 years of experience, uses its proven Regulatory Science Approach, including the determination of the Optimal Dosage Regimen using the principles of the FDA’s Project Optimus Oncology initiative. Processa’s NGC drugs are modifications of existing FDA-approved oncology drugs resulting in an alteration of the metabolism and/or distribution of these FDA-approved drugs while maintaining the existing mechanisms of killing the cancer cells. The advantages of Processa’s NGCs are expected to include fewer patients experiencing side effects that lead to dose discontinuation, more significant cancer response, and a greater number of patients — over 250,000 treated each year for each drug — who will benefit from each NGC drug. Currently under development are three next generation chemotherapy oncology treatments: Next Generation Capecitabine (“PCS6422” and capecitabine to treat breast, metastatic colorectal, gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and other cancers), Next Generation Gemcitabine (“PCS3117” to treat pancreatic, lung, ovarian, breast, and other cancers), and Next Generation Irinotecan (“PCS11T” to treat lung, colorectal, gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and other cancers).

LUM-201 (ibutamoren) is an orally administered small molecule that promotes the secretion (secretagogue) of growth hormone from the pituitary gland. The patent grant provides intellectual property protection through November 2042. “We are excited to announce that LUM-201 has been granted a novel formulation patent by the USPTO, which is enabled by unique properties of this molecule achieved through our improved manufacturing processes,” said Lumos Pharma chair and CEO Rick Hawkins in the press release. “Importantly, this new patent extends our exclusivity of LUM-201 through 2042, surpassing our current method of use patent expiration in 2036. This novel formulation of LUM-201 permits a capsule with mini-tablets, which should reduce dose variance and enable easier administration for younger children. We intend to employ this formulation in our upcoming phase 3 trial evaluating oral LUM-201 in moderate pediatric growth hormone deficiency expected to start in Q4 2024, and eventually in the commercial setting following potential regulatory approval of LUM-201.”

About Genprex Inc. 

Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes that currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. Genprex’s oncology program utilizes its proprietary, nonviral Oncoprex(R) Delivery System, which encapsulates the gene-expressing plasmids using lipid nanoparticles. The resultant product is administered intravenously, where it is taken up by tumor cells that then express tumor suppressor proteins that are deficient in the tumor. The company’s lead product candidate, Reqorsa(R) Immunogene Therapy (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated in three clinical trials as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) and small cell lung cancer (“SCLC”). Each of Genprex’s three lung cancer clinical programs has received a fast-track designation from the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of that patient population, and Genprex’s SCLC program has received an FDA Orphan Drug Designation. Genprex’s diabetes gene therapy approach is comprised of a novel infusion process that uses an adeno-associated virus (“AAV”) vector to deliver Pdx1 (“Pdx1”) and MafA (“MafA”) genes directly to the pancreas. In models of type 1 diabetes, GPX-002 transforms alpha cells in the pancreas into functional beta-like cells, which can produce insulin but may be distinct enough from beta cells to evade the body’s immune system. In a similar approach, GPX-003 for type 2 diabetes, where autoimmunity is not at play, is believed to rejuvenate and replenish exhausted beta cells.

PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) Developing Pipeline to Address Unmet Needs in Autism Spectrum Disorder via Suramin Sodium

March 21, 2024 09:35:00
  • Autism (“ASD”) is a global problem, with no generally accepted treatment. In the UK alone, between 1998 and 2018, research has found a greater than 780% increase in the number of autism cases
  • PaxMedica is focused on the development of novel anti-purinergic therapies (“APTs”) for the treatment of ASD and other serious conditions with intractable neurologic symptoms
  • The ASD therapeutics market was valued at $2.01 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $3.42 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.9%
  • There is currently no approved pharmacologic treatment targeting the cause and symptoms. Current treatments only address the condition’s symptoms rather than targeting the pathophysiology itself

Researchers used to believe that autism spectrum disorder only affected one in 2,500 children – today, that estimation is closer to one in 36 children. Between 1998 and 2018, research has found more than a 780% increase in the number of autism cases in the United Kingdom. This significant increase is partially due to the deeper understanding and awareness of autism and the number of physicians who can diagnose the condition (https://ibn.fm/o5oTZ).

Autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) is a developmental disorder affecting how individuals interact with other people, behavior, communication, and learning. This disorder can be diagnosed at any age, but symptoms often appear in the first two years of life. There is currently no approved pharmacologic treatment targeting the cause and symptoms. Current treatments only address the condition’s symptoms rather than targeting the pathophysiology itself.

PaxMedica (NASDAQ: PXMD), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel anti-purinergic therapies (“APTs”) for the treatment of ASD and other serious conditions with intractable neurologic symptoms, is on a promising path to address the unmet medical needs of ASD, bringing hope to millions. Anti-purinergic therapies target the excess production of purines in cells. An overexpression of purines can offset homeostasis and result in an overproduction of cellular adenosine triphosphate, the main energy molecule in all living cells.

PaxMedica is developing a robust lineup of products aimed at addressing ASD and associated neurodevelopmental conditions. Their flagship product under development holds promise in mitigating or even easing some of the most challenging factors of ASD, potentially facilitating smoother integration of autistic individuals into social settings and enhancing their quality of life.

At the forefront of PaxMedica’s initiatives are PAX-101 and PAX-102, leveraging the company’s exclusive source of suramin sodium, a broad-acting anti-purinergic therapy with a century-long history. Their ongoing endeavors encompass:

  • PAX-101 (IV Suramin) for ASD – Having concluded a Phase 2B study in 2021 involving 52 subjects across six sites in South Africa, PAX-101 exhibits promising results in ASD management. Suramin’s efficacy, demonstrated in a dose range study, underscores its potential as a therapeutic agent for ASD, with findings presented to AACAP in October 2021.
  • PAX-102 (Intranasal Suramin) – PaxMedica’s innovative intranasal suramin formulation is presently undergoing evaluation for its efficacy in ASD and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
  • PAX-101 for HAT – Capitalizing on suramin’s historical usage in treating Human African Trypanosomiasis (“HAT”), PaxMedica is advancing PAX-101 as a therapeutic solution for this ailment, particularly focusing on early-stage East African HAT cases.
  • Selective Anti-Purinergic Therapies – PaxMedica’s exploration extends to other APTs through preclinical studies targeting specific purinergic receptors. These investigations aim to uncover therapies that offer tailored benefits beyond suramin’s broad spectrum of action.

The ASD therapeutics market was valued at $2.01 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $3.42 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% (https://ibn.fm/lvMzA). There are many factors expected to influence this growth, including the growing prevalence of the disease globally, the rising awareness about ASD and the available options for treatment, and growing interest by investors making investments in R&D initiatives for effective drugs to treat ASD.

BioMedNewsBreaks — PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) on Promising Path to Meet Medical Needs of ASD Patients

March 20, 2024 13:19:57

PaxMedica (NASDAQ: PXMD), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focusing on the development of novel anti-purinergic therapies (“APTs”), is focusing its lead program on autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”), for which there is no approved pharmacologic treatment targeting cause and symptoms. “The current ASD treatments only address the symptoms of the condition but do not target the pathophysiology itself. PaxMedica is on a promising path to address the unmet medical needs of families with ASD – bringing hope to millions,” a recent article reads. “PaxMedica is using existing research on a drug called suramin, initially created to treat a disease called Human African Trypanosomiasis (‘HAT’), to support new studies for treating ASD and a related condition known as Fragile X-Associated Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome (‘FXTAS’)… If these trials prove that suramin is effective, PaxMedica could not only get the drug approved for use, but also receive a special coupon from the FDA called a Priority Review Voucher (‘PRV’). This voucher, which can accelerate the review of a new drug, is quite valuable and could be sold to another pharmaceutical company for a significant amount of money. The company intends to channel these funds into conducting extensive trials for ASD and FXTAS treatment through its lead program, PAX-101 (IV Suramin)… In 2024, PaxMedica is positioned to continue its momentum, sustained by achievements in 2023. The company is working to expand its product pipeline, centered on its proprietary source of suramin.”

BioMedNewsBreaks – Clene Inc.’s (NASDAQ: CLNN) Work in Nanotechnology Highlighted in ‘First in Human’ Podcast

March 19, 2024 11:08:24

Clene (NASDAQ: CLNN), a late clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, was featured in a recent episode of First in Human, a biotech-focused podcast featuring interviews with industry leaders and investors to learn about their journeys to in-human clinical trials. Hosted by Vial EVP Rich McCormick, the podcast is available for on-demand listening on First in Human by Vial. Rob Etherington, president, director and CEO of Clene joined the program to highlight information about the company’s work in the field of nanotechnology. “For decades…the idea of a therapeutic elemental metal having some medicinal efficacy has been well understood. We at Clene had the idea to combine this with the mechanism of a nanotherapeutic, providing, at the atomic level, the ability to drive energy into the failing mitochondria that powers your and my brain,” Etherington said during the interview.

“We first completed some translational medicine work, whereby we were able to show that our drug taken orally got into the stomach then into the bloodstream and then across the blood brain barrier to drive the key bio energetic metabolites that you and I rely upon for energy… we were able to reverse the clock potentially by decades, in terms of key bioenergetic metabolites. We then proceeded into two amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (‘ALS’) studies and one multiple sclerosis study, all of which have concluded in the past 18 months. These studies have shown the ability of CNM-Au8(R) to improve function, which can be translated as how to improve the way patients move and walk and talk and eat and chew and breathe.”

BioMedNewsBreaks – Sigyn Therapeutics Inc. (SIGY) Filling Gap in Therapeutic Antibody Treatment Space

March 15, 2024 12:15:35

Sigyn Therapeutics (OTCQB: SIGY), a development-stage medical technology company, is currently focused on the development of four therapeutic candidates to address clearly defined limitations in global health. These include the ImmunePrep(TM) platform to enhance the performance of immunotherapeutic antibodies to treat cancer, ChemoPrep(TM) to enhance the targeted delivery of chemotherapy, ChemoPure(TM) to reduce the toxicity of chemotherapy, and Sigyn Therapy(TM) to address pathogen-associated conditions that are beyond the reach of drugs. “Though highly valued, [immunotherapeutic antibodies to treat cancer] are limited by poor delivery to cancer cell targets and as a result, most patients do not respond to therapy. Inhibiting the delivery of therapeutic antibodies are circulating decoys that display the binding site target of the antibody and can be highly prevalent in the bloodstream. As a result, a significant portion of an antibody dose can bind to circulating decoys instead of cancer cell targets. ‘Amazingly, with more than 1,000 therapeutic antibodies being evaluated by human studies, there was no strategy to reduce the circulating presence of decoys that block the delivery of these drugs,’” reads a recent article that contains excerpts from Sigyn Therapeutics chairman and CEO James A. Joyce’s letter to shareholders.

“To fill this gap, Sigyn Therapy designed the ImmunePrep platform, whose implementation is based on a reverse decoy mechanism. This mechanism will leverage the use of therapeutic antibodies to create extracorporeal blood purification devices that extract antibody decoys from the bloodstream before the normal delivery of the same therapeutic antibodies.”

BioMedNewsBreaks – Clene Inc. (NASDAQ: CLNN) Announces Publication of Peer-Reviewed Research for Investigational Drug CNM-Au8(R)

March 15, 2024 10:36:11

Clene (NASDAQ: CLNN) (along with its subsidiaries, “Clene”) and its wholly owned subsidiary Clene Nanomedicine Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on improving mitochondrial health and protecting neuronal function to treat neurodegenerative diseases, today announced the publication of peer-reviewed research, titled “Protein Corona Composition of Gold Nanocrystals.” The publication appeared in the journal ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science and fully characterized the proteins from human blood plasma that form the protein corona of the gold nanocrystals of CNM-Au8(R), Clene’s investigational drug in development for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. “The protein corona of CNM-Au8 gold nanocrystals, tailored for brain delivery applications, exhibits a unique composition, notably enriched with critical apolipoproteins such as apolipoprotein E. This composition enhances the nanocrystals’ ability to traverse the blood-brain barrier. Simultaneously, the depletion of opsonin-based proteins in the corona extends their circulation time in the blood, as observed clinically. Our research underlines that these engineered gold nanocrystals, designed with specific structures and without surfactants, can form a distinct protein corona that facilitates access to brain tissue,” said Morteza Mahmoudi, associate professor in the Precision Health program and Department of Radiology at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

PaxMedica Inc. (NASDAQ: PXMD) Pursues Autism Treatment as Diagnostic App Shows Promise to Effective ASD Diagnosis

March 8, 2024 08:50:00
  • One in 36 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) – with ASD four times more common among boys than girls
  • The SenseToKnow app accurately predicted eventual autism diagnoses in a group of 475 children – according to the study, performance was similar across sex, race, and ethnicity
  • PaxMedica is leveraging historical data on the drug suramin to fund trials aimed at treating Autism Spectrum Disorder and Fragile X-Associated Tremor/Ataxia Syndrome

According to the CDC, about 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) – with ASD four times more common among boys than girls (https://ibn.fm/06kly). Currently, there is no medical test to diagnose ASD, and families often face a delay in receiving a diagnosis. Doctors must rely on developmental history and the behavior of the child to make an ASD diagnosis. A diagnosis in girls and children with minority backgrounds often has a longer wait time due to the challenges in finding appropriate experts and the variable symptoms that accompany the disorder.

In a study published in Nature Magazine, researchers introduced a digital screening device that uses machine learning to analyze different behavioral aspects to assess the likelihood of childhood ASD. The SenseToKnow app accurately predicted eventual autism diagnoses in a group of…

The company is building a robust product pipeline to allow people with ASD to successfully integrate their behavior with others and improve their lives. Its lead programs, PAX-101 and PAX-102, utilize the company’s proprietary source of suramin sodium, a broadly acting APT known for over 100 years.”
