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 $0.054, up 8.00%, on 990,554 volume with 75 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 649,350, and its 52-week low/high is $0.045/$0.19.

International Stem Cell Corp. announced today that the company has been selected to give a platform presentation on its preclinical studies in Parkinson's at the 2015 American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. ISCO's chief scientific officer, Ruslan Semechkin, Ph.D., will discuss the data at the "Parkinson's Disease" scientific session (s48.007), on Thursday, April 23rd at 4:45 pm in a talk entitled "Neural Stem Cell Based Therapy for Parkinson's Disease."

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human stem cells and the development and commercialization of cell-based biomedical products. The company was the first to develop and perfect a new class of human stem cells called parthenogenetic stem cells, created from unfertilized human eggs. ISCO has a strong patent portfolio offering clean intellectual property and freedom to operate. The company’s stem cells present superior immune matching capabilities and can be used in millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.

The company’s human stem cells have been shown to be as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells, however their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo, which effectively sidesteps the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. In contrast to induced pluripotent stem cells, ISCO’s stem cells do not involve manipulation of cells’ genome thereby avoiding potential safety and regulatory obstacles in clinical applications.

The company's scientists are currently focused on using its stem cells to treat severe unmet medical needs of the central nervous system (Parkinson’s disease), the liver and the eye, where cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells. Once the technology has been clinically validated there are an essentially unlimited number of potential applications. Because of their immune-matching ability a relatively small number of these stem cell lines could offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank as a means of serving populations of different immune types across the globe.

In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides a growing revenue stream through two wholly owned subsidiaries. Lifeline Cell Technology specializes in producing primary human cells and growth media for biological research, and Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and markets advanced anti-aging skincare products utilizing the company’s expertise in stem cell biology.

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO). Today, Zenosense, Inc. closed trading at $0.1999, up 9.18%, on 46,985 volume with 18 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 23,593, and its 52-week low/high is $0.13/$0.95.

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO) is developing and intends to market a novel device to enable hospitals to detect Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) bacterial contamination, a major constituent of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). The annual costs of treating hospitalized MRSA patients are estimated to be between $3.2 billion and $4.2 billion in the United States alone. MRSA infected patients are likely to spend three times as long in a hospital stay at three times the cost, and are five times more likely to die than an uninfected patient.

Early detection of MRSA and HAIs in general is vital. Recent studies suggest that implementing prevention practices can lead to up to a 70 percent reduction in certain HAIs with a financial benefit of using these prevention practices estimated to be as high as $25.0 billion to $31.5 billion in medical cost savings in the United States alone (according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, part of the US Department of Health and Human Sciences). Currently, no cost effective early detection device is available.

The Zenosense MRSA detection device is expected to act like a “smoke detector” for MRSA; designed to detect MRSA in the environment or infected patient, even before a patient demonstrates any obvious symptoms, satisfying this huge unmet need.

Zenosense has an agreement with leading European sensor developer Sgenia Group, which is developing such a device exclusively for Zenosense through their subsidiary Zenon Biosystem. The estimated manufacturing cost per device is under $100 USD and possibly as low as $50 USD. The Zenosense device, utilizing established Sgenia programming and patent-pending hardware, utilizes a single sensor to perform an infinite number of scans, creating tens of thousands of "virtual sensors". The low cost and compact design of the Zenosense device, if successfully developed, would make it possible to be worn by individuals, as well as placed in numerous sensitive areas in the healthcare setting.

Zenosense has a streamlined management team experienced in high-level marketing in the medical sector, supported by the outsourced Zenon Biosystem scientific/development team of qualified personnel with extensive knowledge and experience in the development of sensors. Both of these teams will fuse together through a high level advisory board of experienced professionals. A cost-effective Zenosense MRSA detection device, once developed, is expected to be in high demand, driven by patient safety, cost and insurance considerations. Disclaimer

Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. (PNOW)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. (PNOW). Today, Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. closed trading at $0.0025, even for the day, on 394,933 volume with 4 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 576,811, and its 52-week low/high is $0.002/$0.6471.

Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. (PNOW) is a provider of proprietary technology, marketing solutions, infrastructure and branding services to hotel operators.

The company's innovative platform functions as a powerful vehicle to help hotel operators achieve greater success in three specific areas: (i) expanded international exposure and recognition, (ii) powerful core structure, and (iii) high occupancy rates that drive increases in bottom-line profits. Pure continuously refines its suite of proprietary solutions to deliver measurable and proven results to hotel properties. This success has been reflected in those properties operating under the Hotel PURE brand as well as with independent boutique hotel properties utilizing the company's Friendly Reservation Online (FROL) booking engine technology and internet marketing services.

Operating a successful bi-lateral business model, Pure has four objectives:

1. To franchise the Hotel PURE brand to selected hotel properties worldwide similar to the business model currently employed by Big Brand operators such as Holiday Inn, Marriott, Sheraton and others;

2. Provide highly efficient and economical back-end booking engine technology services to independently branded boutique hotels that require a robust online presence;

3. Launch a stand-alone online hotel booking search engine primarily focused on Central America; and,

4. Expand the portfolio of Pure-owned boutique hotels operating under the Hotel PURE brand.

The company initially began growing its operations primarily in the United States. However most recently, major opportunities in Central America began presenting themselves, giving Oriens the ability to retool its business model. Now the company is positioned to acquire, own and operate its own properties – which would be marketed under the new brand with occupancies handled by the re-launched online booking engine system.

Ultimately, Pure intends to become a top-tier hotel brand operator and Internet booking and marketing service provider, qualifying as a preferred supplier to lending institutions. The company also intends to establish an invaluable international footprint with its online booking engine technology and marketing offerings; making that segment of its business a prime acquisition target for major online travel search and booking engine companies. Advancement toward this goal is guided by an executive management team with deep expertise in technology, banking, management, hospitality, branding and marketing, technical development and more.

VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA). Today, VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. closed trading at $9.99, even for the day. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 656, and its 52-week low/high is $3.16/$15.00.

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.

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.
