International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.31, up 6.90%, on 300,681 volume with 95 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 194,982, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.65.
International Stem Cell Corp. was happy to deliver some encouraging efficacy and safety data out of their recent pilot study of in rodent and non-human primate models of Parkinson's disease, which utilized the company's human parthenogenetic stem cell therapy technology. This study is a first, key step toward a cell-based Parkinson's therapy and represents the foundational work necessary to embark upon even more rigorous clinical trials. Subsequent to implantation of the neuronal cells in both animal models in this study, subjects in the test group managed to produce solid safety and efficacy results, roundly confirming ISCO's hypothesis.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA). Today, VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. closed trading at $0.80, up 6.67%, on 5,200 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 3,291, and its 52-week low/high is $0.06/$2.80.
VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA) is a biotechnology company applying stem cell technology for drug rescue and cell therapy. Drug rescue combines human stem cell technology with modern medicinal chemistry to generate new chemical variants ("drug rescue variants") of once-promising drug candidates that have been discontinued during late-stage preclinical development due to heart or liver safety concerns. VistaGen also focuses on cell therapy, or regenerative medicine, which includes repairing, replacing or restoring damaged tissues or organs.
VistaGen's versatile stem cell technology platform, Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™, has been developed to provide clinically relevant predictions of potential heart and liver toxicity of promising new drug candidates long before they are ever tested on humans.
By more closely approximating human biology than conventional animal studies and other nonclinical techniques and technologies currently used in drug development, VistaGen's human stem cell-based bioassay systems can improve the predictability of the drug development cycle and lower the cost of new drug research and development by identifying product failures earlier in the cost curve. According to the Food and Drug Administration even only a ten percent improvement in predicting failure before clinical trials could save $100 million in development costs, which savings ultimately could be passed on to patients.
Using mature human heart cells produced from stem cells, VistaGen has developed and internally validated CardioSafe 3D™, a novel three-dimensional (3D) bioassay system for predicting the in vivo cardiac effects of new drug candidates before they are tested in humans. VistaGen is now focused on using CardioSafe 3D™ to generate up to two new, safer small molecule drug rescue variants every twelve to eighteen months. VistaGen anticipates that these drug rescue variants will be modified versions of once-promising new drug candidates that have been discontinued by pharmaceutical companies and academic research institutions because of heart toxicity concerns, despite substantial prior investment and positive efficacy data demonstrating their potential therapeutic and commercial benefits. In most cases, VistaGen plans to license or sell its new, safer drug rescue variants in strategic partnering arrangements with global pharmaceutical companies, arrangements providing VistaGen with both near term and downstream milestone payments and economic participation rights but without future development cost obligations.
AV-101, VistaGen's lead small molecule prodrug candidate has successfully completed Phase I clinical development in the U.S. for treatment of neuropathic pain, a serious and chronic condition affecting millions of people worldwide, depression, and other neurological diseases and conditions. To date, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded VistaGen over $8.75 million for development of AV-101. Management anticipates strategically out-licensing AV-101 to a development and marketing partner in 2013.
Neuropathic pain affects approximately 1.8 million people in the U.S. alone. Although the current active AV-101 IND is for the treatment of neuropathic pain, VistaGen's development plan and regulatory strategy for AV-101 has been designed to allow its Phase 1 safety studies to support Phase 2 development for depression, epilepsy, Huntington's Disease and Parkinson's disease, indications for which there is now supporting preclinical efficacy data. To date, VistaGen has been awarded over $8.5 million from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) for development of AV-101.
VistaGen is also developing LiverSafe 3D™, a novel predictive liver toxicity and drug metabolism bioassay system for drug rescue applications. In parallel with drug rescue activities, the Company is funding early-stage nonclinical studies focused on potential cell therapy applications of its Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™ platform.

VistaGen Therapeutics Enters Strategic Collaboration With Celsis to Further Advance LiverSafe 3D™
International Stem Cell Corp., a biotechnology company focused on the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSC), this morning announced the safety and encouraging efficacy of its stem cell therapy in rodent and non-human primate models of Parkinson’s disease.
“This pilot study represents a first essential step in bringing cell-based therapies for Parkinson’s disease to clinical trials,” stated co-author of the study Evan Y. Snyder, MD, PhD, Director of Stem Cells and Regenerative Biology Program at Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute.
Designed to demonstrate the viability, fate, and functional efficacy of the stem cell derived neural cells after implantation to the brain, these placebo-controlled studies involved highly pure populations of neuronal cells that were differentiated from hpSCs according to the protocol developed by ISCO and recently published in the Nature Publishing Group’s Scientific Reports.
The studies employ MPTP-lesioned African Green monkeys and 6-OHDA-lesioned rats, the principle models used to study Parkinson’s disease. The duration of the primate study was four months and the rodent study six months. In the non-human primate model, behavioral endpoints were assessed with parkinsonian scores. These scores, based on a standardized rating scale, were recorded by observers blinded to whether the primates were in the treatment or control group. Observations were done twice per day, five days per week. In the rodent model, behavioral improvement was assessed using the cylinder test, amphetamine, and apomorphine induced rotation tests. Cell engraftment, viability, and phenotype of the implanted cells were determined histologically at the end of the studies. Tumorigenicity and safety of the therapy was assessed at the end of both the rodent and primate studies by gross necropsy and brain histology.
Following the implantation of the neuronal cells, all monkeys in the treatment group had higher levels of dopamine in the brain compared with the control group. Additionally, the rats in the treatment group showed gradual improvements in motor symptoms consistent with cells survival, engraftment, and dopamine release. No adverse events, including dyskinesia, deformations, tumors, or overgrowth, were observed in the rat or monkey treatment groups. These exciting results provide solid evidence that hpSC-derived neuronal cells can be safe and have a disease modifying effect. Although preliminary, these results further support the belief that ISCO’s approach to Parkinson’s disease treatment is highly promising.
“These results are pivotal for our pre-clinical Parkinson’s program showing, as they do, that the hpSC-derived neuronal cells can potentially ameliorate the behavioral symptoms without triggering dyskinesias. This data forms the foundation of our discussions with the FDA as we move towards our IND in 2013,” said Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, Principal Investigator of this study, head of R&D for International Stem Cell Corporation and Member of the American Academy of Neurology.
According to today’s press release, these results will be presented and discussed at the 65th American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting, one of the world’s most important annual events for neurologists and neuroscience professionals and the largest such international meeting of its kind with more than 12,000 attendees at last year’s meeting.

Soul and Vibe Interactive, a publisher of games for consoles, mobile devices, and personal computers, today told investors that its business model includes selling monetized games-related content, including virtual apparel, costume, and prop collections for Avatars. In addition to generating an additional stream of revenue, Avatar items can promote brand awareness for Soul and Vibe’s games and intellectual properties.
Avatars, the digital representation of gamers, have grown in popularity across many computer and console platforms. Microsoft, for example, launched its Avatar Marketplace on Xbox Live in 2009. Through this online marketplace, users buy virtual apparel including t-shirts, shoes, accessories, and costumes. They can also purchase props such as pets, hand-held toys, and miniaturized ride-on vehicles based on gaming intellectual properties, pop-culture, and licensed-brands. Each Avatar item sold is a marketing impression for the game and IP with which it is associated for the 55+ million Xbox Live subscribers online.
“Soul and Vibe intends to sell Avatar item collections in conjunction with each game we release. Avatar items based on the IPs of our licensed-brand partners, like General Mills, and our own proprietary IPs, is an ideal way for us to expand awareness for each of our games,” stated Soul and Vibe’s CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo (“Tony”).
“As a form of monetized games-related content, Avatar items are one form of revenue generating marketing vehicle that can provide an additional revenue stream for the Company. We also intend to develop and monetize in-game consumables and downloadable content that enhances and expands the experience for gamers,” Chiodo added.

The Guitammer Company, a leader in low frequency sound products and technology, today reported that it has secured its eighth theater installation with Sichuan Lumière Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumière Pavilions) of Beijing, China.
A retro-fit upgrade, this installation will add the ButtKicker “4D” system to all 330 seats in one auditorium of Lumière’s existing eleven auditorium theater complex in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Once the installation is completed, the total number of Lumière Pavilions seats that feature Guitammer’s ButtKicker immersive technology will increase to nearly 1,400 seats in eight different locations. Today’s press release hinted that additional installations are expected.
Unlike other offerings that require the costly installation of new seats, Guitammer’s solution can be added to almost any existing theater seating. Combined with the tremendous results achieved after previous installations, this “retro-fit” differentiator was one of the key reasons Lumière decided to upgrade this existing auditorium.
“After hearing of the many positive responses Lumière received from its patrons who experienced our ButtKicker ’4D’ theater, it is no surprise that the imprint of our exciting technology continues to grow in China,” Mark Luden, President of Guitammer, stated. “I expect our international footprint will continue to expand as cinemas around the globe seek out and invest in new technologies that provide a differentiated and enhanced user experience.”

The human body’s primary defense against diseased cells is a strong immune system, a complex system of cellular level processes that has evolved to both identify and take action against foreign or diseased cells, including cells developing into cancer cells. It is believed that the human body is constantly generating at least some cancer cells, but that the body’s immune system is generally able to handle them. However, a defective immune system, a system compromised by a genetic problem, or environmental factors, or weakened by changes related to the aging process, leaves the body vulnerable to internal or external attack.
For example, it appears that an aging immune system is simply less effective in dealing with cancer cells, although the reasons for this are still not fully understood. As a result, cancer is much more common in people over 60. The immune system must have the ability to both identify and destroy problem cells, and if either of these roles is compromised, the result can be full blown disease.
But science is now learning how to leverage the many remarkable abilities of the human immune system, tweaking it in such a way as to help it identify and then take successful action against cancerous and other corrupted cells. Immunotherapy is just now beginning to appear on the public stage with treatments that partner with the body instead of fighting it.
Advaxis is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing the next generation of immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases. The company’s immunotherapies are based on a novel platform technology involving the use of live, attenuated bacteria that are bio-engineered to secrete antigen/adjuvant fusion protein(s) that redirect the powerful immune response all human beings have to the bacterium to the cancer itself. In effect, the approach puts cancer in the line of fire.
ADXS-HPV, the company’s main anti-cancer drug, is currently being evaluated in 5 clinical trials for HPV-associated diseases, including cervical cancer, head and neck cancer, and anal cancer, and the company has over 15 distinct constructs in various stages of development.
