American Sands Energy Corp. (AMSE)
We are highlighting American Sands Energy Corp. (AMSE) today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
American Sands Energy Corp. is an oil sands exploration and development company operating in the state of Utah. The Company has acquired rights to oil sand ore covering approximately 2,000 acres of prime oil sand deposits in the Sunnyside area of Utah. American Sands has an extraction and recovery system using a licensed proprietary solvent that separates oil and other hydrocarbons from sand, dirt and other substances without creating tailing ponds and other environmental hazards.

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 $0.30, off by 6.25%, on 30,505 volume with 13 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,322, 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.

International Stem Cell Corp. has made bold progress developing ethically valid human parthenogenetic stem cell (hpSC) technology that allows for pluripotent stem cell creation from unfertilized eggs, and while this technology has incredibly broad application potential, it is the recent announcement by ISCO’s R&D team regarding advancement of the company’s transplantable human cornea program which currently captures the attention of both investors and ophthalmologists.
The June 28 release by ISCO, detailing development by the company’s R&D team of a new method for deriving corneal endothelium-like cells, largely validated prior data sets gathered from collaborator Sankara Nethralaya Eye Hospital in India, who has helped tremendously with the program’s efforts to bring about a solution to the massive demand for corneal tissue. You see, the ophthalmologic field is overwhelmed by demand for vital corneal transplants, but the finite supply from donations prohibits any real solution. Well, not only does the ISCO technology offer real hope for a fully functional transplantable cornea, but the prerequisite technology and tissue formation method itself could be used for standalone medical treatment as well, helping to promote wound healing and corneal regeneration.
These are finer points of the amazing work being done by ISCO touched upon by Bethesda, Maryland, leading ophthalmologist Charles Bahn, MD, a specialist in corneal and external eye disease, in a recent report. Bahn joined a chorus of voices from the medical community regarding the potential of research being conducted by International Stem Cell Corp. for solving the growing shortfall of available transplants. Dr. Bahn really emphasized the importance of the technology fundamentals as well, as the cells derived in the process, in and of themselves, represent a tremendous therapeutic/regenerative medicine breakthrough and in general this technology could help substantially delimit transplant infections (like HIV or hepatitis).
That is the beauty of stem cell approaches for such problems as degenerative eye disease, using the body’s own tissues to heal it, or rather, create the conditions required for the body to heal itself via natural tissue aggregation and cell activity. Bahn and other medical professionals, who see consistently growing numbers of patients in dire need, with degenerative eye problems and corneal disease that could directly benefit from the tissues made available through ISCO’s diligent research efforts, are eager to see success out of the company’s transplantable human cornea program.
The global market for this technology is immeasurably vast, but India alone has some 4M corneal vision impaired patients with protractedly limited access to corneal tissues, to quantify a single slice. The strong foothold in India and the Asian market already established by ISCO will prove quite beneficial to shareholders as the platform emerges to commercial availability and, as VP of R&D for ISCO, Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, noted in the June 28 release, this milestone work in advancing the usable cornea platform also brings with it additional licensing opportunities, as the benefit of these endothelium-like cells produced in the new method are far-reaching.
ISCO plans to work hand-in-hand with their collaborative network in India (including the All-India Institute for Medical Sciences) and clinical affiliates elsewhere to advance validation of the new method and cell applications.
Exciting times for the field of ophthalmology made possible by ISCO’s cutting-edge hpSC tech and the market’s are buzzing over the long-term impact such technology would have, not just for patients whose quality of life could be dramatically improved, but for shareholders who stand to benefit from facilitating such a revolutionary breakthrough in tissue engineering science, as the creation of fully-functional human corneas ready for transplant could reshape the face of an entire industry.

FCBA’s most prestigious award recognizes Messer and Lawrence Kass, her co-chair of the FCBA’s Veterans Appeals Committee, a partner in the New York office of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, for their impressive leadership and notable achievements over the years.
The Veterans Appeals Committee established and manages the FCBA’s Veterans Pro Bono Program. The program centers around identifying and screening appeals filed pro se with the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (COAFC), then, after selecting the appropriate appeals, securing pro bono counsel from FCBA interested attorneys. The committee also creates and fosters relationships with other Veterans Law Committees from other bar associations. Furthermore, it monitors ongoing developments and offers educational programs regarding veteran’s law with the judiciary and legislature.
Messer and Lawrence worked as committee chairs over the last two years, and in the two years before that they served as vice-chairs of the committee. Throughout their tenure, pro bono attorneys secured by the FCBA’s Program have successfully argued cases before the COAFC to recoup benefits previously denied to veterans and their families by the Veterans Administration. In addition, the Court’s opinion in many of those cases set precedents that will help untold numbers of veterans newly applying for benefits to the Veterans Administration. Messer herself successfully represented Vietnam War veteran Leroy Comer in his more than 30 year battle with the VA to get disability benefits for his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder disability. Messer argued on Mr. Comer’s behalf, and the Court agreed, that veterans who are not represented by an attorney do not need to make explicit formalist arguments for certain benefits when their informal arguments raise the question. In her role at Limelight Networks, Messer manages patent litigation and prosecution as well as all other intellectual property matters.

22nd Century Group, a plant biotech company with proprietary technology for tobacco harm reduction and smoking cessation products, today announced it has delivered an additional 2.7 million SPECTRUM® research cigarettes.
The SPECTRUM line is comprised of a series of cigarette styles with a fixed amount of tar, but with varying nicotine yields. The product line features 24 styles, 11 regular and 13 menthol versions, with eight levels of nicotine content. The most prevalent style of SPECTRUM has approximately 97 percent less nicotine than “light” cigarettes on the market.
22nd Century developed SPECTRUM for NIDA, a department of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Since the product is for independent research purposes only, SPECTRUM will not be sold as a commercial cigarette.
“As the only company in the world capable of producing cigarettes with such a wide range of nicotine levels, 22nd Century was chosen to supply its proprietary SPECTRUM research cigarettes as a subcontractor under a five-year federal government contract,” Joseph Pandolfino, 22nd Century’s CEO stated in the press release.
22nd Century said dozens of research studies will be conducted with SPECTRUM to observe smoking cessation; compare how different nicotine levels in cigarettes affect smoking behavior and exposure to smoke; and to determine whether there is a threshold nicotine level in cigarettes which does not produce dependence.

STWA has put together an impressive package of intellectual property (developed with and exclusively licensed from Temple University), with their DOE test-proven oil pipeline flow rate enhancing Applied Oil Technology™ (AOT, essentially reduces viscosity in the pipe) and a diesel engine efficiency technology based on the same viscosity-reducing idea, ELEKTRA™, leading the pack. And that same AOT 1.2v unit which previously underwent testing with the DOE at the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC), handing in successful results since October of last year, was reported as being boxed up and shipped out today to Langfang, China, for the second stage of the three-phase commercialization acceptance process required by the CPP (China Petroleum Pipeline Administration).
CNPC PetroChina (the biggest oil and gas operator, as well as oil field services provider, in the world’s most energy hungry country) and the CPP have their Pipeline Flow Assurance Test Center at Langfang ready to receive the prototype, and in some five weeks from today Field Loop Testing can begin at what is one of China’s most advanced pipeline R&D facilities. This announcement marks a key leaping off point for the overall commercialization of AOT technology in China and investors are already buzzing about STWA’s potential to capitalize big time across China’s vast oil pipeline infrastructure.
It’s not hard to understand the kind of attraction AOT is getting, as the energy cost per mile of transport reductions are quite impressive, something that translates into bottom line savings for operators. The crude oil remains chemically unchanged, as does the temperature. Less energy is required to pump the oil and with lower overall line-loss per mile; plus the fact that the oil simply returns to a natural state after a few hours, we can easily see an incredible product profile on this AOT tech. With AOT, pipeline operators can simply dope the oil temporarily for transmission through the infrastructure, reaping big savings.
The next and final stage of the mandated commercialization process, Phase III, will follow Field Loop Testing and consist of a commercial Pilot Program, executed so as to take full advantage of the demonstrated effectiveness of AOT against China’s three major crude oil grades. The testing is being conducted by CPP in close collaboration with SWTA’s local commercialization partner TDC as per the terms of the Cooperation Framework Agreement (whereby TDC bears the cost for testing/commercialization of AOT with the CPP).
CEO of STWA, Cecil Bond Kyte was pleased to report this clear indicator that the company is on track for regulatory approval of AOT in China and characterized ongoing cooperative efforts with both TDC and the CPP as “very productive/constructive.” Not long now for AOT in China really, what with TDC having already pinned down a 300km, 27-inch pipe for the commercial Pilot Program in Phase III.
