Vantage Wire and Stockhouse reported previously on Bison Gold Resources, Inc. (BGE.V), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Bison Gold Resources is a mineral exploration company whose shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company is concentrating on gold exploration; they have property assets in Manitoba, Canada. Since Quarter 3 in 2009, Bison Gold has been focusing their efforts on the advancement of their past-producing flagship Central Manitoba gold property in South East Manitoba (CM Property).
Bison Gold Resources has their headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. The Company formed via the business combination of Mid-North Resources and a group of financial professionals. Bison's principal focus is exploring high-grade gold deposits in the Province of Manitoba. The Central Manitoba property is historically the second largest gold producer in the prolific Rice Lake Greenstone Belt after San Gold Corp.'s Rice Lake Mining Operations.
In 2009, Bison Gold filed an NI 43-101 technical report concerning their CM Property, on Sedar. The Company has since commissioned Watts, Griffis and McQuat to complete an updated report that incorporates exploration data, of more than 16,152 assays that underwent testing at TSL labs in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from their 2009-2012 exploration activities.
The CM Property produced approximately 205,000 ounces of gold up to 1951 from two main mining trends called the Central Manitoba zone and the Ogama-Rockland zone. In Q3 2010, Bison Gold decided to focus on the resource potential next to and at depth to the old Ogama mine workings. Over the next two years, the Company drilled 74 holes, totaling 26,747 meters on the Ogama-Rockland mineralized trend. An extensive majority of the holes hit gold mineralization in at least one zone.
In 2011, Bison Gold staked mineral claims across the remaining unclaimed portion of the Ross River Pluton. It was determined that the Ross River Pluton (host rock for Ogama-Rockland trend, Eldorado, Valley and Gold Hill showings) had major potential to host high grade gold deposits. The Company staked 66 mineral claims totaling 14,629 hectares.
Last year, Bison Gold, along with the University of Waterloo and the Manitoba Geological Survey, launched a multi-year metallogenic and structural study on the southwest portion of the Rice Lake Greenstone Belt/Ross River Pluton (host rock of the Ogama-Rockland trend).
Bison Gold Resources, Inc. (BGE.V), closed Friday's trading session at $0.04, up 14.29%, on 1,000 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.03/$0.19.

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 $0.248, up 7.83%, on 54,889 volume with 16 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 110,447, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.45.
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 $0.85, up 6.25%, on 6,300 volume with 3 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 1,581, and its 52-week low/high is $0.06/$1.52.
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.

From its public introduction in the 1980s, modern mobile technology has spread to every corner of the world. Today, it’s all about smartphones and tablets, with most online activity actually coming from mobile devices.
Consider some of the following statistics, from MobiThinking.com (http://dtg.fm/VVd3):
• There are now nearly 7 billion mobile cellular subscriptions worldwide, with many developed regions actually posting more subscriptions than people as some individuals hold more than one.
• China holds the most mobile subscriptions, with over a billion, although a number of countries have a higher percentage of users.
• Global shipment of smartphones are anticipated to outnumber shipment of basic phones by more than 20 to 1 over the next two years.
• Global tablet shipments are expected to outnumber notebook shipments by more than 2 to 1, with tablet shipments topping 380 million by 2016.
• The top 3 mobile phone vendors are Samsung, Nokia, and Apple, together controlling over 50% of the market.
• China and the U.S. together represent over 40% of the global smartphone market.
The mobile communication market has been solidly embraced by DoMark International and its SolaWerks subsidiary. SolaWerks addresses the most basic and unavoidable need of mobile device users: keeping their devices charged. The company’s unique patent-pending technology, soon to be released for Apple and Samsung products, lets users charge their mobile tablet and phone devices anywhere, making use of both visible light and heat radiation to allow effective charging both outdoors and indoors without plugin.

The company is in pre-clinical stages for its treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is the second most prevalent neurodegenerative diseases, effecting 4 percent of the population over the age of 50. The company says the origin of the disease and its relative localization in the brain makes this an attractive target for stem cell therapy.
Chronic liver disease, including hepatitis C, is the third most common cause of death due to chronic diseases in persons 35 to 64 years old. The company is in pre-clinical stage for its treatment of liver disease with stem-cell derived hepatocytes, a cell that makes up 70-85 percent of the liver’s cytoplasmic mass.
The company notes a large unmet medical need for the treatment of blindness with corneal tissue. Approximately 10 million people in the world are blind because of damage to their cornea. ISCO is in pre-clinical stage to produce cornea tissue implants. The company has developed and filed patents on a process that creates human corneal tissue from parthenogenetic stem cells, closely resembling a human cornea in structure and cell types.
As of April 13, 2012, the company had 90 pending patent applications across eight patent families, and three pending patents related to its skin care products. ISCO also has licensed a portfolio of 128 international patents or patent applications across 30 patent families.

Ventripoint Diagnostics is the creator of what company management believes to be the first cost-effective and accurate diagnostic tool for measuring right ventricle heart function. The company created the blueprint to achieve its application expansion and goals for continued financial growth, supported by key management.
The first applications of the company’s Angelo (VMS™) analysis system are congenital heart disease and pulmonary arterial hypertension. Ventripoint has been granted Canada and Europe (CE Mark) approval for the sale of VMS and is awaiting the U.S.-FDA marketing clearance as well.
VMS was developed to address several issues associated with current heart diagnostics and holds several advantages over an MRI scan. VMS procedure time is 15 minutes and is much cheaper compared to MRI or CT, in part because of the reduced office visit time. The tool eliminates the requirement of general anesthetic for children, a lengthy heart analysis process, and the need for a second trip to the hospital.
As of March 2013, Ventripoint had installed VMS in numerous research centers (10 in Europe, four in Canada, and 12 in the United States) and forecasts full-year 2013 revenue between $3 million – $5 million. The company’s goal by the year 2014 is to triple revenue to $10 million – $15 million.
Raising awareness and generating sales are obvious keys to achieving these sales goals, and in support of this, the company later this month will travel to Minneapolis, Minn., for the 24th Annual Scientific Sessions (ASE2013) where it will host a booth to present its products to attendees.
Ventripoint in December will also hold a booth at EuroEcho2012 in Istanbul, Turkey, an annual meeting that this year will focus on heart failure and imaging in interventional cardiology. Scientific minds from around the world will convene to discuss the latest research and clinical findings on the broader spectrum of echocardiography as well as other cardiovascular imaging modalities.
CEO George Adams heads the company as a serial entrepreneur and financier. Dr. Adams has 124 scientific publications and is a reviewer for major scientific journals, federal granting agencies, and Centres of Excellence.
The company in March appointed Ellen Briant as its CFO to head the company’s financial strategy as it continues to launch new products, build revenues, and seek out and establish partnerships to further grow the company.
