(AHRO), and we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2006, AtheroNova, Inc., through their wholly owned subsidiary, AtheroNova Operations, Inc., is an early stage biotech company. Currently, the Company is researching novel patents-pending applications of certain natural compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque deposits. Their intention is to develop multiple applications for their compounds, to be used in pharmaceutical grade products for the treatment of atherosclerosis, obesity, and lipomas. AtheroNova is based in Irvine, California.
The Company has developed intellectual property (IP) for a class of compounds that have the potential to reduce significantly the incidence and severity of atherosclerosis. Their intellectual property for treating atherosclerosis began with the ideas of their two founding shareholders, Dr. Giorgio Zadini and Dr. Filiberto Zadini, co-inventors of the Company's technology.
AHRO-001 is AtheroNova's first novel application for the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis. AHRO-001 uses certain natural compounds to regress atherosclerotic plaque deposits through a process known as delipidization. Delipidization dissolves plaques in artery walls, which are then removed by natural body processes. The Company's plan is to develop multiple applications for their patents-pending compounds that can be used in pharmaceutical-grade products for the treatment of atherosclerosis. Market sectors potentially served by AHRO-001 include Cardiovascular Disease, Stroke, Peripheral Artery Disease, Dementia, Alzheimer's, and Erectile Dysfunction, all of which have been linked to atherosclerosis.
AtheroNova announced in late 2011, that their agreement with OOO CardioNova (CardioNova), a Russian subsidiary of Maxwell Biotech Group, to license territorial development and commercialization rights for AtheroNova's AHRO-001 lead compound was ratified by both companies. Earlier this year, AtheroNova announced that they initiated the first shipment of AHRO-001 Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) to their research and development partner CardioNova. CardioNova is responsible for Phase 1 and 2 human clinical studies of AHRO-001. The clinical-grade material will be used to commence the toxicology studies conducted for Russian regulatory purposes.
In April of this year, AtheroNova announced that they signed an agreement with Frontage Laboratories, Inc. to begin work on the formulation, compounding and tabletization of the Company's AHRO-001 product in advance of the upcoming Phase I human clinical studies. Frontage is one of the leading pharmaceutical contract research organizations (CROs) in the U.S.

Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (TNXP)
Earlier, plrinvest reported on Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (TNXP). and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in New York City, Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. is a specialty pharmaceutical company. The Company is developing therapies for challenging disorders of the central nervous system (CNS), including fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Tonix focuses on conditions characterized by significant unmet medical need, inadequate existing treatment options, and high dissatisfaction among both patients and physicians. Tonix Pharmaceuticals' shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.
The Company reformulates approved pharmaceutical active ingredients to design products with optimal safety, efficacy and predictability. Their most advanced product candidates, TNX-102 for FM and TNX-105 for PTSD, are novel dosage formulations of cyclobenzaprine, the active ingredient in two U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved muscle relaxants. FM is a CNS condition characterized by diffuse musculoskeletal pain, increased pain sensitivity, fatigue and disturbed sleep. PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that begins in the aftermath of traumatic experiences. Sleep disturbances, including nightmares and insomnia, are core features of PTSD and are included in two of the three main symptom clusters.
Tonix Pharmaceuticals is currently conducting a pharmacokinetic study of their novel formulation of VLD cyclobenzaprine, TNX-102. They expect to enter pivotal trials this year. TNX-102 is a novel formulation of very low dose (VLD) cyclobenzaprine, a widely prescribed muscle relaxant with an established safety profile. A number of large clinical studies have confirmed cyclobenzaprine's safety and tolerability.
Concerning studying TNX-105 in PTSD, the Company plans to conduct exploratory clinical studies to establish the effective dose range for their novel formulation in the treatment of PTSD symptoms. They will need to conduct efficacy studies before their products can undergo marketing as a treatment for FM or PTSD.
In April, Tonix Pharmaceuticals announced that they completed a pharmacokinetic (PK) study of the first formulation of their lead drug, TNX-102, for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome (FM). The study results support further development of TNX-102 as a product that can potentially deliver benefits similar to those observed in FM patients treated with very low dose cyclobenzaprine in the Company's dose-escalating Phase 2a study.
Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (TNXP), closed on Tuesday at $1.00, even with yesterday’s close, on 1,500 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 4,039. The 52-week low/high is $0.84/$2.06.

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 $0.26, up 18.18%, on 373,986 volume with 90 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 172,810, and its 52-week low/high is $0.27/$1.15.
International Stem Cell Corp. announced new sales and marketing initiatives for its wholly-owned subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care products today, designed to enable Lifeline to robustly, strategically, and profitably grow the business in consumer as well as trade audiences.
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.

USA Recycling Industries, founded in 2000, operates through several company-owned specialty recycling centers as an intermediary service provider within the automotive service center industry. In that configuration, it delivers specialty recycling advantages to the more than 5,000 auto service centers in its network – some of them major players in the retail auto parts trade.
Among other things, these liaisons position USA Recycling, through its subsidiary Scrap USA, to capture significant revenue from the $75-billion global scrap metals market. Given that scrap metal is a direct input to steel production, providing up to 50 percent of the raw material needed to make steel, it only makes sense that the almost 130 million long tons of global scrap metal production contribute to a reduction in energy consumption when compared to mining iron ore and heating/separating it in a foundry. This, as a result, makes scrap metal recycling even more environmentally friendly than some people realize.
USRI’s operations – through diversification via its multiple subsidiaries as well as partnerships – are able to capture a generous share of the scrap metal market. This allows the company to branch out into other recyclable waste streams, or to create the sorts of franchising opportunities and revenue-sharing agreements like the one it recently arranged with Recycling Franchisors, Inc.
Other initiatives aimed at placing USRI on an equal footing equal with other major U.S. scrap recyclers include launching a new and highly informative website, and a change of address for the company’s executive offices. Those efforts, placed alongside USRI’s 2011 acquisition of Scrap USA (which had been successfully operating in the automotive service center industry since 2007), and a name change to better reflect the company’s operations and business model, place USRI in an enviable position within the U.S. recycling industry.
USA Recycling Industries’ reputation, for providing only top-drawer waste collection and removal, and insuring that said waste will not impact any operating U.S. landfills, is yet another way in which the company stands head and shoulders above run-of-the-mill recyclers who have given the industry such a bad name. For USRI, its commitment to repurpose and sell all recyclable materials to end users through its sales offices in North America, India and the United Arab Emirates, represents a very “green” effort to capitalize on a “cradle-to-cradle” life-cycle assessment.
USA Recycling, operating as a collection and recycling firm, handles not only scrap metal but (automotive) oil filters, used motor oil and other vehicle lubricants, used tires, used batteries, and other automotive waste-related disposal and repurposing activities. It also provides 48-hour turnarounds, certified weight tickets on surrendered items, warehouse scrap processing which follows all applicable laws and regulations, and provides these services free to businesses needing one container changeout each month. In addition, USRI commonly pays within 30 days, providing the needed documentation with each check.
Operating in 40 U.S. states, with export trading operations in North America, India, and the United Arab Emirates, USRI is part of a growing national movement aimed at resource reclamation and recycling to preserve and extend the life of such natural resources as iron ore, copper, aluminum, lead, zinc, and stainless steel.
According to a 2011 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report, this scrap metal resource protection leads to a 75-percent savings in energy, a 90-percent savings in raw materials needed, an 86-percent reduction in air pollution, a 40-percent reduction in water use and a 76-percent reduction in water pollution, as well as a 97-percent reduction in mining wastes, many of which – piled around the countryside – lead to groundwater pollution and a lack of potable water in mining regions. In addition, the EPA notes, every tonne of new steel made from scrap saves 2,458 pounds of iron ore, 1,377 pounds of coal and more than 116 pounds of limestone. And, while none of these is a rare mineral, their extraction almost always leads to despoliation of the ecosphere.
Equally as important, in terms of the ecosphere, are the 300 million scrap tires abandoned in the U.S. each year. Formerly these tires, when worn beyond the tread, were not good for much beyond garden rounds and tire swings (or as garage-door bumpers in a pinch), and were thrown alongside the highway, discarded in abandoned lots, or dumped in lakes. Thanks to enterprises like USRI, which has made a commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle, in 2010 this nation recycled one billion pounds of crumb rubber generated from the approximately 300 million tires discarded, and used much of this in rubberized asphalt, which made American roads safer, smoother, and quieter; rubberized asphalt has been shown to reduce road noise by up to 4 decibels.
With its commitment to maximize shareholder value while simultaneously providing a waste collection stream that spares landfills and ensures that today’s automotive materials – from metal to tires to batteries to lubricants – will not become tomorrow’s ecological nightmares, USRI stands poised to deliver value across the entire spectrum of American life.

Biotech company Transgenomic’s niche is on the advancement of personalized medicine in cancer and inherited disease through the use of the company’s proprietary molecular technologies. In line with this focus, the company today announced it was awarded a patent license entitled “Method of Determining the Sensitivity of Cancer Cells to EGFR Inhibitors including Cetuximab, Panitumumab and Erlotinib,” which includes all tumor types and targeted therapies that may be influenced by the gene PIK3CA’s mutation status.
The patent was exclusively licensed by the Montefiore Medical Center, whose inventors, Drs. Sanjay Goel and John Mariadason, demonstrated that key mutations in PIK3CA serve as predictors for the efficacy of EGFR-targeted therapies.
Transgenomic has developed assays for complete detection of PIK3CA mutations using the company’s proprietary SURVEYOR® Scan, REVEAL® ICE COLD-PCR and BLOCker™-Sequencing solutions.
Craig Tuttle, CEO of Transgenomic, said that the number of genes associated with the effectiveness of targeted cancer treatments is increasing. In response, Transgenomic’s aim is to develop a complete portfolio of “best-in-class kits for clinically relevant mutations” by leveraging the company’s proprietary technologies.
“The recent issuing of this important patent is a significant milestone in the continued development of our genetic biomarker intellectual property portfolio,” Tuttle stated in the press release. “Since exclusively licensing this patent we have been able to effectively apply our high sensitivity mutation detection technologies, such as SURVEYOR Scan, REVEAL ICE COLD-PCR and BLOCker-sequencing, to PIK3CA assays in order to be able to detect genetic variations in very low mutant load samples, such as plasma, serum and circulating tumor cells.”

Profire Energy, a top manufacturer/installer of advanced burner management systems (BMS’s) and other oilfield combustion systems, like their 1100 series BMS and the new 2100 series (designed to meet the latest industry demands with enhanced usability, redundancy, stability, and feature upgrades), reported today that 25-year industry veteran supplier of process equipment services for gas conversion/dehydration systems, Gly-Tech Services, has joined the ranks of authorized distributors (non-exclusive) for PFIE’s winning technology.
Extensive due diligence on the part of Gly-Tech, in seeking out the ideal solution to present to their customers, resulted in the Profire offerings being selected due to copious empirical data from demonstrations validating the improved safety, fuel efficiency, and process efficiencies compared to the competition. Particular attention was paid to the suite of remote administration capabilities, allowing operators to easily handle/monitor oil and gas production burner requirements via an intuitive and easy-to-use set of protocols.
The 2100 series BMS brings powerful features to the table like easy installation (thanks to a clearly marked component I/O setup), solar panel-ready low power design, satisfaction or surpassing of extant codes/standards, and the ability to rapidly shut the system down upon flame out. It is no surprise that Gly-Tech picked Profire after laboriously testing and researching the technology offerings available in the natural draft fired-tube heater space, a market vector for which PFIE’s 1100/2100 series BMS’s were specifically designed.
Complete with transient (protected and fail-safe) circuits and the ability to auto-relight (DC voltage spark ignition), or be used in manual operation mode, Profire’s BMS systems represent a one-stop-shop solution to sector operators. The products truly deliver a comprehensive package that has earned PFIE a sizeable reputation already. But the reputation wasn’t required to secure this key selection by Oklahoma/Louisiana-rooted gas conversion specialists, Gly-Tech. It was the raw performance metrics that sealed the deal here, and Gly-Tech couldn’t be more pleased with the decision.
President of Gly-Tech, Rocky Buras emphasized the ease of use, safety specs, and robust features, like the auto-relight burner and remote operability. With a great deal of experience installing other burner management systems, Gly-Tech understands the failings of existing hardware and the beauty of the PFIE engineering/design. Similarly, Gly-Tech has been around long enough to witness first-hand the evolution of the space, as natural draft-fired heaters for oil/gas wells have really taken off (especially in the last 10 years amid the resurgence of domestic hydrocarbon recovery).
Profire is one of the real success stories in this evolutionary process and the company has plenty to be proud of, standing on the cutting edge of safe, cost-effective burner management as they do.
CEO and Chairman of the PFIE Board, Brenton Hatch explained that the accelerated growth in current market dynamics, as well as the company’s fundamental drivers mesh extremely well with an evolving technological burner management system space. Hatch hailed this deal with Gly-Tech as being precisely the sort of move the company needs to make in order to capitalize fully on underlying conditions, driving shareholder growth proportionally.
Hatch pledged to make this new relationship but one star in a larger authorized distributor constellation as PFIE continues to secure territory among oil and gas producers. Safety and process upgrades are big news for any oil and gas operator. The Profire technology is sound and Gly-Tech is clearly aware of the demand/potential for expanded commercialization of the systems.
