The Mud Lake property consists of twenty placer claims in Nye County. This property is readily accessible year round. New America Energy is developing an integrated regional lithium exploration approach using geochemical and basin modeling with gravity, electromagnetic and geochemical fieldwork to build drilling targets.

The Company has contracted an exploration team that has extensive geochemical, GIS modeling and targeting experience in the area. The Company’s intention is to explore the property to determine if lithium evaporates and brine deposits have formed at depth similar to those found at Clayton Valley.

The Clayton Ridge lithium project property is adjacent to the Clayton Valley Playa on the southern extension of the Clayton Ridge Trough. The Clayton Ridge trough has been defined by a number of gravity geophysical surveys. It is considered to be a major conduit for the lithium brines that have been leached from the lithium enriched Montezuma Peak rhyolitic tuffs and the lithium enriched waters of Alkali Hot Spring. The claim is approximately 5 miles southwest of the Chemetall Foote lithium processing plant.

Lithium is a soft, silver-white metal that belongs to the alkali metal group of chemical elements. Under standard conditions it is the lightest metal and the least dense solid element. It is a member of the “alkali metal” elements along with sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium and francium. Today, there are two primary uses for Lithium. One is as a catalyst in the production of metals and ceramics. The second is as a primary material in Lithium Ion batteries for small electronic devices.

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 $0.2750, on 46,100 volume with 17 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 2,323, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.00.

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.

GreenHunter Energy, Inc. (GRH) Secures Public Pricing of 425k Shares of Series C Preferred Stock, Estimated Net Proceeds $8.3M

GreenHunter Energy is poised to drive significant shareholder returns in the burgeoning domestic/global oil and natural gas shale sector through a refined focus on the water resource services part of the company’s diverse renewable energy portfolio, and reported pricing a best-efforts public offering today with projected net proceeds of some $8.3M (after typical associated expenses).

The vast majority of the 425k share, non-convertible 10.0% Series C Cumulative Preferred Stock offering will be applied directly to CAPEX and operational outlays, acquisitive/developmental (direct or indirect) efforts geared to increase the company’s salt water disposal architecture, beefing up the subsidiaries, handling corporate expenses, and settling/refinancing outstanding debt.

Looking at a July 31 close date for the public offering, GreenHunter anticipates a NYSE MKT listing under the symbol GRH.PR.C with a public offering price of $21/share ($25/share liquidation preference). Investment in short-term marketable securities and reduction of short-term indebtedness are potential salient targets until more specific applications are determined, but with GRH’s technology-agnostic approach to providing broad spectrum services to the oil and gas operators, especially those in the Bakken, Eagle Ford, and Marcellus shale, it won’t be long before a direct application is ascertained.

The domestic market is surely heating up as oil and natural gas activity increase steadily, that’s why GreenHunter and its wholly-owned subsidiary, GreenHunter Water, LLC, have put together an experienced team able to help operators keep their extremely expensive rig infrastructure operating at maximum efficiency through true Total Water Management Solutions™ for produced water and frac flowback (in addition to a substantial, growing salt water disposal footprint). With veteran oil man, Gary C. Evans at the helm (over a century of oilfield experience in the Senior Management), the GreenHunter Water team has become quite adept at devising solutions tailored to the needs of sector operators, irrespective of the technical complexity required to execute a given solution.

Sole book runner for the offering was MLV & Co., with Livingston Securities, National Securities Corp., and Northland Capital Markets acting as co-managers. The offering is pursuant to the company’s filed registration statement which was declared effective by the SEC and investors can obtain a full prospectus from either EDGAR or the SEC websites (or by mail at GreenHunter Energy, Inc., 1048 Texan Trail, Grapevine, Texas 76051 – Attention: Investor Relations).

With an already strong position via the company’s disposal well facilities in the Marcellus (99-acre) and Eagle Ford (20-acre), as well as the trucking/hauling fleet capabilities (HAZMAT placard units available) required to support the company’s field services, equipment, and tank rentals, GRH stands to gain real bottom line momentum from this capital infusion. Powerful solutions like RAMCAT™ (Remote Access Management Compliance Asset Tracking) for wellhead management and compliance tasks, which blends proprietary software and the latest communications hardware to provide user-friendly, yet robust wellhead over watch, or the operator-centric Frac-Cycle™ customized treatment systems (any volume of fresh or brine water), set GRH apart in an increasingly crowded field of service providers. Technology like the company’s modular, above-ground, and temporary storage system, the MAG Tank™, is a perfect showcase of the company’s operator-centric design philosophy, as the 5-40k bbl MAG Tank is super easy to setup and take down, as well as having an extremely flexible design that is suitable to the widest variety of uses (the design really takes into consideration common problems like space, terrain, and weather/environmental restrictions).

GreenHunter intends to stay ahead of the game in unconventional oil and gas play water solutions, continually investing in infrastructural build up, as well as advancing the state of the water purification hardware, the trucks, and the company’s array of environmental clean-up/rental equipment.

Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. (AEZS) Requests FDA Fast Track Designation for AEZS-130 as an AGHD Diagnostic Test

Oncology and endocrinology drug development company Aeterna Zentaris announced it has filed a request with the United States Food and Drug Administration for Fast Track designation for AEZS-130, the company’s oral ghrelin agonist, as a diagnostic test for adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD). This request is part of Aeterna Zentaris’ New Drug Application (NDA) strategy for AEZS-130, to advance the product toward regulatory approval in the most efficient way possible.

According to the FDA’s guidance for Fast Track applications, the FDA responds to such requests within 60 days of receipt. The Fast Track program facilitates the development and expedites the review of new drugs that are intended for treating serious or life-threatening conditions and also demonstrate the potential to address unmet medical needs. Ordinarily, Fast Track designated drugs qualify for priority review, which expedites the FDA review process.

Aeterna Zentaris has been involved in a lengthy series of informative discussions with the FDA and now has the guidance needed to move ahead as speedily as possible with its NDA filing plans. Obtaining Fast Track designation would allow the company to submit its NDA on a rolling basis, which means Aeterna Zentaris could submit certain modules of its NDA progressively, with the expectation that the review of those portions would be completed or well underway before the NDA submission is complete. If the company obtains agreement on its Fast Track designation and rolling submission strategy, it would expect to begin filing modules before the end of 2012 and to complete the NDA submission in the first quarter of 2013. Aeterna Zentaris believes its Fast Track request is justified, as there is currently no approved diagnostic test for AGHD in North America. AEZS-130 could provide a test that is safe and effective and also convenient, because it is administered orally.

Affecting 35,000 adult Americans, AGHD is generally characterized by low energy levels, decreased strength and exercise tolerance, increased weight or difficult losing weight, emotional changes, anxiety, and sleep impairment. Every year, 6,000 new adult patients are diagnosed with AGHD.

AEZS-130 is a ghrelin agonist that is a novel orally active small molecule that stimulates the secretion of growth hormone. Aeterna Zentaris has completed a phase 3 trial for use of the product as an oral diagnostic test for AGHD. The product has been granted orphan drug designation by the FDA for use in this indication. AEZS-130 is also in a phase 2A trial as a treatment for cancer-induced cachexia. Global rights to AEZS-130 are owned by Aeterna Zentaris.

Aeterna Zentaris, an oncology and endocrinology drug development company, is currently investigating treatments for a variety of unmet medical needs. The company’s pipeline includes compounds at all stages of development, from drug discovery through marketed products.

BIOLASE, Inc. (BIOL) Opens Cutting Edge Technology and Training Center at Corporate Headquarters

BIOLASE, a global leader in dental laser manufacturing and distribution, announced today that it has opened a technology and training center at its Irvine, CA, corporate headquarters. BIOLASE’s patented Waterlase dental laser technology, proprietary EPIC line of diode lasers, and fully functional 3D digital imaging, including NewTom Cone Beam 3D imaging and BIOLASE DaVinci Imaging(TM) products, are all incorporated into the company’s hands-on lab within this cutting edge facility. Dental professionals who wish to hone their skills and acquire certification using best-in-class BIOLASE products can utilize the training center and the specialized training sessions administered therein.

The training given at the facility uses the “Tell, Show, Do and Teach Each Other” teaching method. The experienced clinicians at the training center combine lecture and hands-on coaching using extracted teeth and proxy dental models to provide top of the line instruction. In addition to the training opportunities, tours of the factory will be provided, giving dental professionals a chance to gain some insight into the development and manufacturing of BIOLASE products.

BIOLASE Chairman and CEO Federico Pignatelli said, “Advanced surgical and imaging products like ours require proper training. Creating a central hub for that activity is the most efficient way to deliver the best-in-class education and allows clinicians to interact with and among one another — creating a better learning environment. When presented with the full range of benefits our technologies deliver, the result is often a repeat customer and BIOLASE becomes a more essential part of that practice. BIOLASE, in turn, moves closer to becoming the top provider of technology solutions in dentistry. In addition to the clinical and practice benefits of taking courses in-house at BIOLASE, practitioners will gain exposure to management and to research and development activity where their interaction and input helps to continue the feedback loop so important in being a leader in innovation.”

Courses to be offered in the new training center include Waterlase and Diode Laser Certification Training, Refresher classes, and Master Specialty courses in Endodontics, Periodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. A full range of 3D Imaging courses are in development.
