DanDrit Biotech USA, Inc. (DDRT)
We are highlighting DanDrit Biotech USA, Inc. (DDRT), today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
DanDrit Biotech USA, Inc. is a clinical-stage company whose devotion is to developing the world’s first vaccine against colorectal cancer. The Company is focusing on the clinical development of a dendritic cell vaccine for the treatment of colorectal cancer. DanDrit’s expertise in producing dendritic cells from a patient's blood is combined with conventional production methods with the aim of making new and advanced vaccines for cancer patients. DanDrit Biotech USA is based in New York City.
The ability of dendritic cells to provoke a strong immune response is the basis of the vaccine therapies under development at DanDrit Biotech USA. MelCancerVac® (MCV) is a new product by the Company for colorectal cancer. MVC uses a vaccination treatment program in addition to the customary treatment types of chemotherapy and surgery.
MelCancerVac® uses a patient’s own dendritic cells filled with tumor antigens from the lysate of a specifically selected melanoma cell line. MelCancerVac® has been tested in clinical trials for the treatment of two different kinds of cancer. One is colorectal cancer (CRC) and the other is non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
CRC clinical trials include Phase I at Gentofte Hospital, Denmark (Completed); Phase II at Gentofte Hospital, Denmark (Completed); and Phase II at the National Cancer Centre, Singapore (Completed). NSCLC clinical trials include Phase II at Herlev Hospital, Denmark (Completed). Additionally, DanDrit has developed methods to produce tolerance-promoting dendritic cells for use in the treatment of autoimmune disease.
DanDrit Biotech USA announced in April of last year that it entered into an agreement to acquire privately-held OncoSynergy, Inc. (San Francisco, California). OncoSynergy’s vision is to radically improve outcomes for patients with unmet need in oncology with Resistance Mechanism Inhibitors (RMIs). OncoSynergy develops novel oncology drug candidates. This includes the first-in-class Food and Drug Administration (FDA) orphan drug designated anti-CD29 monoclonal antibody, OS2966.
Pertaining to DanDrit’s Vaccine Platform, the Company states that therapeutic dendritic cell-based vaccination of cancer patients represents one of the most promising non-toxic methods of treatment. The primary objective of the vaccination is to stimulate the patient’s own immune system to fight cancer cells. The Company utilizes the patient’s own dendritic cells, taken from the blood and loaded with tumor antigens.
The dendritic cells subsequently undergo injection back into the cancer patient. There, surface expressed antigenic peptides are recognized by T lymphocytes. T lymphocytes are stimulated by the dendritic cells to proliferate and differentiate into effecter cells, which target and destroy tumor cells specifically.
DanDrit Biotech USA, Inc. (DDRT), closed Tuesday's trading session at $1.60, up 6.67%, on 5,000 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 2,837 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.71/$3.50.

Singlepoint, Inc. (SING)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Singlepoint, Inc. (SING). Today, Singlepoint, Inc. closed trading at $0.0125, up 14.68%, on 1,821,575 volume with 77 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 2,425,045, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0046/$0.0245.
Singlepoint, Inc. (SING) today voices its support for a congressional push that validates the mission of its SingleSeed (www.singleseed.com) subsidiary to provide much-needed payment processing solutions to the burgeoning legal cannabis industry.
Though a total of 28 states have legalized marijuana in some form of consumption/use, marijuana is still federally illegal, which hinders licensed marijuana businesses from opening an account with most national banks. Cannabis businesses must instead deal in cash, which puts them at risk of break-ins, theft and other threats, as well as creates space for tax fraud. However, for smaller banks, credit unions and companies like SingleSeed, the lack of banking solutions creates the opportunity to fill increasing demand.
Singlepoint, Inc. (SING) provides mobile technology and marketing solutions that enable companies, nonprofits and religious organizations to conduct business transactions, accept donations, and engage in targeted communication via mobile devices. Through diversification of its own model, the company is also leveraging its core technology to expand into the mobile auctions and daily fantasy sports markets.
SING currently has two fundraising solutions. Text2Bid is an interactive way to increase auction revenues. The technology makes it easy for people to bid in auctions from any text or web-enabled phone. Donate by Text allows nonprofits to securely collect one-time or recurring donations via text. This capability creates a personal experience for the donors, and enables ongoing communication between the donor and nonprofit or event sponsor.
SING's payment solutions include point-of-sale (POS) terminals, loyalty programs, payment processing, phone services and financing. Pay by Text™ enables a business to accept payment transactions and, in essence, turns the user's mobile phone into a point-of-sale device. Operating on the same platform as mobile marketing, Pay by Text is designed to increase revenues, raise the average per-transaction amount, and create a fast, easy and hassle-free method of payment.
As part of its diversification and expansion strategy, SING recently acquired an interest in DraftFury (www.draftfury.com), a company that offers skill-based NBA, NFL and MLB daily fantasy sports (DFS) contests. DraftFury is known for its innovative offerings and originality, and is the first cash-flow-positive DFS enterprise. This transaction places SING in a multi-billion dollar industry expected to generate entry fees of $14.4 billion in 2020. Under the guidance of a leadership team well-versed in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital, SING anticipates a strong foothold in its chosen markets. Disclaimer
