Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH)

Stocktwits, SuperStockScreener, TradingView, MarketWatch, OTC Markets, Barchart, Invest, Morningstar, Stock News Journal, and StocksGallery, 4-Traders, and Insider Financial reported on Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Delcath Systems, Inc. is an interventional oncology Company centered on the treatment of primary and metastatic liver cancers. Its investigational product is Melphalan Hydrochloride for Injection for use with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System (Melphalan/HDS). The design of this product is to administer high-dose chemotherapy to the liver while controlling systemic exposure and associated side effects. OTCQB-listed, Delcath Systems is headquartered in New York, New York.

The Company has started a worldwide Phase 3 FOCUS clinical trial for Patients with Hepatic Dominant Ocular Melanoma (OM). Delcath plans to initiate an international registration trial for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Melphalan/HDS has not been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for sale in the United States.

Delcath’s system has been commercially available in Europe since 2012 under the trade name Delcath Hepatic CHEMOSAT® Delivery System for Melphalan (CHEMOSAT), where it has been utilized at major medical centers to treat a broad array of cancers of the liver. Liver directed high dose chemotherapy uses percutaneous hepatic perfusion (PHP) to deliver concentrated doses of a chemotherapeutic agent directly to the liver. Delcath Systems has supported clinical research of liver directed high dose chemotherapy in patients with metastatic ocular and cutaneous melanoma, metastatic colorectal cancer, metastatic neuroendocrine tumors, and hepatocellular carcinoma.

For the remainder of this year, Delcath Systems’ plan is to concentrate on advancing its clinical programs of its unique Melphalan/HDS, and also to propel commercialization efforts for CHEMOSAT in Europe. The Company continues its emphasis on the clinical trials, which consist of Clinical Development Program (CDP).

Delcath’s CDP comprises its FOCUS Phase 3 clinical trial of Melphalan/HDS in hepatic dominant OM (the FOCUS trial) as well as its intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) pivotal trial, scheduled to start enrollment by the end of this year.

Yesterday, Delcath Systems announced that the results of a single institution study were presented at the Cardiology and Interventional Radiology of Europe (CIRSE) annual meeting, taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 16-20, 2017. The study is entitled” Prospective Clinical and Pharmacological Evaluation of the Delcath System’s Second Generation (GEN2) Hemofiltration System in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion (PHP) with Melphalan.”  This study was conducted by a team at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) in Leiden, The Netherlands and presented by T.S. Meijer, MD.

Results of the study showed the GEN2 CHEMOSAT system had an overall efficiency of 86 percent.  Efficiency was highest at the time of highest concentration of melphalan in the blood and decreasing as melphalan blood concentration dropped. Peak efficiency was 95.4 percent in samples taken after 10 minutes of filtration, 85.9 percent at the end of the drug infusion period, and 77.5 percent at the end of the saline washout period. 

Delcath Systems, Inc. (DCTH), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.0819, down 2.62%, on 13,100,723 volume with 1,142 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 3,667,230 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.015/$4.17.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE:LXX) (OTCQB:LXRP)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP). Today, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. closed trading at $0.45, up 7.14%, on 207,040 volume with 101 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 87,495 and its 52-week low/high is $0.11/$0.699.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP), a client of NNW that develops and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. The publication, entitled, "Advances in Drug Delivery Hold the Promise of Reducing Inevitable Side Effects," discusses the potential of cannabinoids as efficient treatment options. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/advances-drug-delivery-hold-promise-reducing-inevitable-side-effects/

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body's gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria's products and others on the market is the company's disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the "unusual" taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company's technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria's processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government's National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria's unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience's business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company's patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria's lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world's most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria's revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company's growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets. Disclaimer

ABcann Global (TSX.V:ABCN) (OTCQB:ABCCF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight ABcann Global (ABCCF). Today, ABcann Global closed trading at $0.7359, off by 0.55%, on 148,290 volume with 150 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 111,396 and its 52-week low/high is $0.6171/$0.90.

NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring ABcann Global (TSX VENTURE: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF), a client of NNW that is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis.The publication, titled, "What it Takes to Thrive in Canada's Multi-Billion-Dollar Marijuana Industry," highlights some of the top competitors in the flourishing Canadian marijuana market. To view the full publication, visit: https://www.networknewswire.com/takes-thrive-canadas-multi-billion-dollar-marijuana-industry/

Also today: ABcann Global Enters Its Growth Phase (Plus Exclusive Interview) -- CFN Media CFN Media Group ("CannabisFN"), the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces the publication of an exclusive interview with ABcann Global Corporation's (TSX VENTURE: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) Aaron Keay, former CEO and current member of the Board of Directors. In the interview, Mr. Keay discusses the company's transition to new CEO Barry Fishman, as well as the opportunities ahead for the company in both Canada and internationally.

ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) ABcann Medicinals, Inc. is a globally licensed, cost efficient producer of premium quality organic standardized medicinal cannabis. One of the earliest licensed Canadian medical marijuana producers under Canada's federally-controlled Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), ABcann has five years of operating experience in the burgeoning medical marijuana space. The company currently owns and operates a fully functioning 14,500 square foot facility in Napanee, Ontario. Additionally, ABcann owns 65 acres of real estate with proper zoning and existing infrastructure in place to support the construction of another production facility of up to one million square feet.

In a November 2016 report, market research firm Canaccord Genuity Group forecasted that the medical marijuana market in Canada could see sales in excess of $8 billion by 2024, creating a sizable opportunity for the country's licensed producers (LPs). The research firm also noted that the "rigorous process of becoming a licensed producer of cannabis in Canada imposes significant barriers to entry and there will be a shortfall of supply in a legalized market in the short-term." This market barrier serves as a strategic advantage for ABcann as it prepares for its highly-anticipated IPO, which is currently scheduled for April 2017.

Canaccord's synopsis of the Canadian cannabis industry is supported by recent market activity, as companies sporting one of the illustrious Canadian government licenses for medicinal production have recorded strong growth following IPO. Canopy Growth (OTC: TWMJ), one of the largest fully-licensed Canadian marijuana growers, saw share prices skyrocket by more than 700 percent in the months following its initial offering. Aphria Inc. (OTC: APHQF), another licensed grower, climbed by more than 900 percent following its IPO. Other companies that have recorded huge growth since going public include Aurora Cannabis (OTC: ACBFF), climbing nearly 900 percent, and SupremePharma (OTC: SPRWF), which soared more than 1,300 percent.

With these market trends in mind, ABcann's impending IPO is one that prospective investors in the marijuana sector will want to explore. Recalls from some of the biggest players in the Canadian cannabis industry have highlighted the considerable learning curve that LPs face in today's market, which makes ABcann's proven track record in the market all the more noteworthy. The company has built a reputation over the years for its best-in-class standardized approach to growing cannabis, including the thoughtful omission of pesticides and a computer monitored growing technique that allows ABcann to minimize the risks of variance in its yields and ensure the creation of consistently high-quality products.

This technique, which the company calls the ABcann Advantage, has helped it record a customer retention rate of 94.7 percent alongside 30 percent month-over-month customer growth. When combined with ABcann's current yield rate, which it has measured at roughly 100 percent greater than the industry average, the company has constructed a strong foundation upon which to build a sizable presence in the global cannabis industry. This global growth potential is illustrated by ABcann's partnership with Israel's Syqe Medical, producer of the world's first selective-dose pharmaceutical grade medicinal plant inhaler. After visiting the company's production facility, Perry Davidson, founder of Syqe Medical, noted that ABcann's production technologies put it "in a class with the best in the world" in its ability to produce standardized pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

ABcann's entry into the public sector is being guided by a seasoned management team, board of directors and advisory board that feature well over a century of combined industry experience. Ken Clement, the company' founder and executive chairman, has been the key component and driving force behind ABcann's development since its inception. His vision of standardized production and dosage sets ABcann apart in the medical cannabis sector. Clement is joined on the company's management team by CEO Aaron Keay. Keay brings more than a decade of capital markets experience to ABcann, having played a role in raising approximately $250 million for public and private market issuers.

Notably, ABcann also has access to the 'Father of Cannabis Research', Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, through its board of advisors. An organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mechoulam was the first scientist to isolate both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and he has received more than 25 prestigious academic awards, including the Rothschild Prize in Chemical Sciences and Physical Sciences in 2012.

With more than 65 acres of growth capacity, a healthy cash balance to fund upcoming construction efforts, steady sales growth, industry-leading yield rates and an established operations team in place, ABcann is well-positioned to compete in the rapidly-expanding Canadian medicinal cannabis industry. These factors, along with the company's ongoing global expansion into the European, Australian and Israeli markets, show why ABcann Medicinals' upcoming public offering fits the bill as "Canada's Next Medical Marijuana IPO."

InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CSE:IN) (OTCQB:IMLFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (IMLFF). Today, InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. closed trading at $0.35, up 1.45%, on 656,486 volume with 213 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 342,966, and its 52-week low/high is $0.073/$0.72.

CFN Media Group ("CannabisFN"), the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces the publication of an article covering how InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE: IN) (CNSX: IN) (IN.CN) (OTCQB: IMLFF) is leveraging biosynthesis to solve a major problem in the medical cannabis industry as it adds key ex-Eli Lilly personnel to its efforts.

InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (IMLFF) is a preclinical-stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of novel therapeutics leveraging the pharmacological benefits of cannabinoids. Utilizing its proprietary bioinformatics assessment tool, InMed aims to identify bioactive compounds found within the cannabis plant that have the potential to offer optimized therapeutic benefit while demonstrating limited adverse effects. This assessment tool, in combination with the company’s cannabinoid biosynthesis technology and drug development pipeline, serves as InMed’s fundamental value driver.

Bioinformatics is a proprietary, computer-based program designed to assist in the identification of novel cannabinoids using comprehensive algorithms to integrate data from numerous bioinformatics databases, as well as a database on the structure of currently approved pharmaceutical products and an extensive database on over 90 individual cannabinoid drugs found in cannabis. This extensive collection of data is derived from both public and propriety-based sources. Leveraging this tool, the company aims to create associations between approved pharmaceuticals and cannabinoids with similar structures in order to identify active cannabinoids that have the potential to treat specific diseases. Per InMed’s website, this type of bioinformatics assessment represents “significant promise for future drug discovery, as it integrates many data sets and builds holistic models to approach a specific disease.”

After discovering these promising active cannabinoids, InMed moves to test and confirm their activity in biological systems through in vitro and in vivo experimentation. It is at this stage of development that the company’s proprietary biosynthesis process of cannabinoid manufacturing will be most promising. InMed is currently developing a robust, high-yield biosynthesis process for manufacturing all 90+ naturally-occurring cannabinoids. By modifying the agriculture-based formula for harvesting cannabinoids, InMed aims to combine the inherent safety and known efficacy of the natural drug structure with the convenience, control and quality of 21st Century laboratory-based manufacturing processes.

The company’s pipeline currently includes two drug candidates in preclinical development, including INM-750 for the treatment of epidermolysis bullosa (EB) and INM-085 for the treatment of glaucoma. Referred to by the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America as “The Worst Disease You’ve Never Heard Of,” EB is a rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects roughly one out of every 20,000 births in the United States. The condition currently has no approved treatment or cure. Through the development of INM-750, InMed is attempting to address this significant unmet medical need. The drug candidate replaces missing keratins in the skin with specially selected cannabinoids in an effort to modulate the painful manifestations of EB.

INM-085, InMed’s second development candidate, is formulated to reduce the elevated intra-ocular pressure that is often associated with glaucoma. Additionally, the cannabinoids utilized in INM-085 are expected to provide neuroprotection for the retinal ganglion cells and other optic nerve tissues following topical administration. Although it is still in preclinical development, INM-085 targets a sizable market. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness with no approved cure. The National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 3 million Americans currently have glaucoma, and more than 120,000 have been blinded by the disease.

InMed is focused on progressing toward validation of its drug candidate selection, using data to secure its patents and developing key disruptive technologies. In 2016, the company was successful in completing financings of $1.9 million. In January 2017, InMed completed a non-brokered private placement of common shares generating aggregate gross proceeds of C$1.5 million, strongly positioning the company to attract the new investment required to fund its aggressive growth strategies in 2017.

The company’s management team has well over a century of combined experience in the biopharmaceutical space. Company CEO Eric Adams has more than 25 years of experience in company and capital formation, global market development, mergers and acquisitions, licensing and corporate governance. During his time as CEO of enGene Inc., he led the gene therapy startup to a position at the head of the industry.

Joining Adams on the InMed management team are Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Sazzan Hossain; Senior Vice President, Clinical and Regulatory Affairs Alexandra D.J. Mancini; SVP, Corporate Strategy & Investor Relations Chris Bogart; and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Charpentier, as well as Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ado Muhammed, MD, DPM, MFPM.

Muhammed, in particular, has an extensive history in the pharmaceutical industry, having previously served as an executive of GW Pharmaceuticals, a global leader in the development of cannabinoid-based medicines. During his time as Associate Medical Director of that company, Muhammed played an instrumental role in the development and FDA approval of one of the first cannabis drugs. This GW Pharmaceuticals development program coincided with a sharp rise in share price from less than $9 in 2013 to more than $129 today, with the company’s current market value totaling more than $2.9 billion.

SmallCapVoice.com, Inc. and ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB:CIIX) ("CIIX" or the "Company"), the premier financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in both the U.S. and China, and a well-known cannabidiol (CBD) health brand engaged in the development, manufacturing, marketing and distribution of consumer products containing CBD, today announce that the Company’s director of investor relations, Alan Klitenic, is featured in an audio interview at SmallCapVoice.com. The interview outlining CIIX’s current news and efforts can be heard at http://smallcapvoice.com/blog/9-18-17-smallcapvoice-interview-with-chineseinvestors-com-inc-ciix.

Founded in 1999, ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) has become a leading financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in the United States and China. Recognizing unprecedented opportunities in the U.S. cannabis industry, CIIX is also laying the groundwork to capitalize on growing demand for cannabidiol (CBD)-based nutrition and health products.

Through its primary website, www.ChineseInvestors.com, CIIX offers a variety of investor education products and services, including real-time market commentary, analysis and educational related services in Chinese language character sets; consultative services to smaller private companies considering becoming a public company; and advertising and public relations related support services.

At the center of this initiative is the ChineseInvestors Method, a unique integration of a disciplined investing process, web-based tools, personalized instructions and support. Using this strategy, CIIX provides reliable market information to help investors make informed investment decisions and meet their individualized financial goals.

CIIX is also leveraging its financial expertise to enter into the burgeoning CBD industry, which within a few years has grown from a relatively invisible sector to a billowing market expected to reach $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020.

The increasing demand for CBD-based products is a catalyst for innovative business endeavors. To this accord, CIIX has established a three-year development plan to capitalize on the convergence of CBD and the nutrition and health products market in mainland China, where the benefits of CBD oil have not been widely recognized.

Under a wholesale agreement with a reputable CBD health brand, CIIX is launching the world's first online CBD health products store published in the Chinese language. The site, www.ChineseCBDoil.com, caters to a growing number of Chinese people awakening to the numerous health benefits of CBD oil for treatment of a variety of conditions such as anxiety, stress, poor sleep, Alzheimer's disease, and more. CIIX expects to launch this website at the end of January 2017, and plans to sell CBD-infused products via online and in-store.

In conjunction, CIIX's cannabis-focused "Yelp"-style mobile app is in development as a platform for Chinese people to review and discuss various cannabis products. The app will be the first marijuana social media mobile app designed for Chinese-speaking customers worldwide. Disclaimer

AppSwarm, Inc. (SWRM)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight AppSwarm, Inc. (SWRM). Today, AppSwarm, Inc. closed trading at $0.0158, up 30.58%, on 46,058 volume with 7 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 177,182 and its 52-week low/high is $0.002/$0.13.

AppSwarm, Inc. (SWRM) is a technology development and incubation acceleration company that partners up with developers through joint ventures, royalty agreements, marketing partnerships, and outright purchase agreements. Focusing on the ever-growing mobile applications market, the company provides all the resources needed for engagement, retention, virality and monetization.

The global games market generated approximately $100 billion in revenues in 2016, but large global game companies have made it extremely difficult for smaller developers to achieve success in the marketplace. As a result, many great ideas aren't monetized. AppSwarm solves this problem by providing the funding and critical business expertise needed to successfully launch and market new applications.

Business applications is another area of focus for the company. Targeting small to medium sized businesses, AppSwarm will be developing and acquiring mobile application tools and platforms that increase productivity and security via data encryption, cloud storage, content management and delivery, digital payments, automation, and customer loyalty marketing solutions. Recent acquisitions made so far represent only a small example of future planned initiatives to develop and market tools for the business community.

Regardless of the target market, AppSwarm can help developers accelerate the success of their app through funding, technology and marketing expertise, as well as a unique eco system that accelerates user acquisition. The company is able to assist at any state of development with completion of concept, market analysis, business and financial management, direct sales and marketing, social game development to ensure correct product application and expedient deployment with cost efficiency.

Ron Brewer, CEO of the company, has accumulated extensive leadership in the technology sector and brings valuable knowledge gained as a Director of Southbridge Advisory Group for nearly 20 years. Ron's C-level experience includes merger & acquisition and post-acquisition turnaround in both the private and small-cap public sector. John Rabbit, director of finance, is a seasoned business veteran that has worked with Fortune 500 firms and served in CEO, COO and CFO positions for firms ranking from $5 million to $300 million in annual revenues. John was directly involved in numerous acquisitions and served in executive capacities for several multinational subsidiaries.

With a well-suited management team, multiple synergistic revenue streams, and diversified growth strategy, AppSwarm is well positioned in a steadily growing industry with countless opportunities for capitalization. Disclaimer
