The Company established on January 24, 1996 pursuant to the laws of the State of Nevada under the name Wolf Exploration, Inc. In August 2001, they changed their name to American Petro-Hunter, Inc. and started focusing their business on the exploration and eventual exploitation of oil and gas.

The Company has started commercial sales of natural gas at their Yale Prospect through their connection to nearby pipeline infrastructure.

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 $0.41, up 2.50%, on 508,269 volume with 56 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 199,409, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.15.

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.

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACRX) Granted First U.S. Patent Relating to Sublingual Sufentanil NanoTabs

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued AcelRx Patent Number 8,202,535, titled “Small-Volume Oral Transmucosal Dosage Forms.” The patent details a method for treating pain by administering a small-volume solid tablet that contains sufentanil by adhering to the oral mucosa. The patent will give intellectual property protection for sufentanil NanoTab-based products until late 2030.

This newly issued patent is an important addition to AcelRx Pharmaceuticals’ patent portfolio, strengthening the company’s ability to protect its proprietary technology in the U.S. The company remains dedicated to the continued expansion of its patent portfolio as it establishes the safety and efficacy profile of the ARX-01 Sufentanil NanoTab PCA System, the first phase 3 data for which is being expected later this year. The system, AcelRx’s lead product candidate, is designed to solve the problems associated with post-operative intravenous patient-controlled analgesia, which has been shown to cause harm to patients following surgery due to the side-effects of morphine, the invasive IV route of delivery, and the inherent potential for programming and delivery errors related to the complexity of infusion pumps.

This newly issued method patent is the first patent issued by the USPTO in relation to sublingual sufentanil NanoTabs. Exclusively owned by AcelRx, the patent provides domestic protection for each of the company’s four development programs. Patent 8,202,535 covers the company’s proprietary NanoTab technology for delivering sufentanil with claims to elements of a pain treatment method by administering a small volume (less than 15mcl) substantially homogenous solid tablet that contains the active ingredient sufentanil to the oral mucosa of a subject, simultaneously generating a minimal saliva response and delivering most of the drug through the transmucosal route, resulting in pharmacokinetics.

AcelRx additionally holds a European patent EP2114383B1, covering small-volume NanoTab dosage forms for transmucosal administration that contains the opioid sufentanil. This European patent covers portions of the company’s dispensing technology and also provides patent protection of particular pharmacokinetic parameters derived from sublingual administration using the NanoTab technology. With more than 70 patent applications currently pending throughout the world, AcelRx continues to file additional new patent applications to further solidify its market exclusivity.

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals is a specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in developing and commercializing innovative therapies for treating acute and breakthrough pain.

Pershing Gold Corp. (PGLC) Secures $4M Private Placement, Will Develop Nevada Gold Acreage

Pershing Gold, the precious mineral developer with an established acreage footprint in Pershing County, at the heart of mining-friendly Nevada, which has the second largest gold reserves on earth (only South Africa has more and it’s far easier to do business in NV), reported securing a huge private placement deal today, totaling $4M in gross proceeds.

The deal has two primary components:

• A purchase by Coeur d’Alene Mines Corp. of 10.937M shares of PGLC at $0.32/share

• And a purchase by existing PGLC shareholder, Dr. Phillip Frost, in conjunction with the Coeur purchase and executed via Frost Gamma Investment Trust (FGIT), of another 1.5625M shares of PGLC common stock under similar material terms and conditions

As a result of the transaction, Coeur and FGIT will both obtain participatory rights in any future financing arrangements (so as to maintain their relevant ownership interests).

Executive Chairman and CEO of PGLC, Stephen Alfers, emphasized the logistical synergy and hailed this really encouraging private placement by major mineral sector player Coeur as a clear sign of the future of Pershing’s Relief Canyon properties. Alfers indicated that the proceeds would be directly applied to development of the site and that particular attention would be paid to the Pershing Packard exploration.

Looking at the localized topology, it is hard to miss the alignment of the noted geophysical anomalies, the Pershing Packard project, and then Coeur’s Nevada Packard Mine further north along the western side of range. The pit for the Relief Canyon Mine is at the base of the range further south and the on-site processing facility, just west of the pit, already has many of the essential elements to support expansion of prospective acreage to the north (like Packard) and south (five heap leach pads, two solution ponds, and an ADR solution processing circuit). With historic production over 110k ounces, excellent mineralization targets to go after, and extant processing capacity already on the mill site claims, PGLC is now well-equipped with the CAPEX muscle to get some serious work done.

Stretching out over 24k acres on a mix of private lands and unpatented mining claims, the entire PGLC acreage footprint encompasses some very interesting geology, much of it analogous to Coeur’s position. Control of the Relief Canyon Mine property and its surrounding lands, in conjunction with the owned claims and untested targets mentioned, as well as additional targets like the southerly Pershing Pass area, offer PGLC a rich menu of development choices.

Shareholders are really pleased by PGLC’s ability to nail down this kind of private placement and investors in general are starting to see the potential of the company’s emphasis on under-explored Nevada mineralization.

Despite near-term price pullbacks in gold as investors settle around no new easing from the federal reserve, we are over the $1550 support level today at just over $1600 an ounce (1-year low of $1486, 5-year low of $641) as the sovereign debt crisis, especially in Europe, simply will not go away. Tack on the obvious move by central banks around the world to increase holdings of gold by multiples of two to three; pulling more tons of supply off the market than ever before, it is a very good environment for PGLC to be developing domestic precious metals.
