Mexus Gold US (MXSG)
SmallCapVoice, AllPennyStocks, 777 Stocks, Wall Street Reporter, FeedBlitz, OTC Picks and Stock Guru reported earlier on Mexus Gold US (MXSG), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in Carson City, Nevada, Mexus Gold US engages in the evaluation, acquisition, exploration, development and production of mining properties. They also conduct salvage operations for the recovery of precious metals. The Company engages in the mining industry for the purpose of producing precious metals, including gold, silver and copper, from their projects located in the state of Sonora, Mexico and in the states of Nevada and Alaska. Mexus Gold US lists on the OTCQB.
Mexus has been evaluating projects that they deem have very strong potential for further evaluation and future exploration. This process has resulted in the decision to enter into an agreement with Mexus Gold Mining S.A. DE C.V. This agreement will give Mexus Gold US the option to acquire 99 percent of the outstanding shares of Mexus Gold Mining, S.A. DE C.V. - located in the State of Sonora, Mexico.
Mexus Gold US's primary activities in the near future will consist of their mining operations in Nevada and Mexico and their cable salvage operations in Alaska and along the west coast of the United States. Their mining opportunities in the state of Nevada and the state of Sonora, Mexico will provide them with projects to recover gold, silver, copper, and other precious metals. The cable salvage opportunity involves principally the recovery of copper and lead from abandoned cable previously utilized for communications purposes.
Mexus produces gold daily at their Caborca placer mine site in Mexico. The Company's 300 ton per hour crushing plant is on site. The complete crushing and milling recovery plant is operational. Mexus is starting on the Julio vein system first. The Company continues to core drill on the Julio.
Last week, Mexus Gold announced that they received a geological report prepared by an independent geologist covering part of the Julio Property near the current placer plant and northward toward the Julio Vein. The property is on or near the Mojave-Sonora Mega Shear Zone, which is well known as a major source of gold bearing zones presently undergoing mining by a number of major gold production companies.
An initial group of 164 samples over a relatively small area of the Julio Property forms the basis for the report. The basis of a tentative tonnage estimate of 3,676,400 grams gold with a cutoff of one gram was on a study of six veins visible on the surface and located in parallel running southeast toward the northwest. The values of the samples ranged from 0.92 grams to 7.26 grams.
The Julio Vein extends over 800 meters before it buries. It is known for high bonanza grades, which includes the underground mining site on the property and is estimated at 415,000 tons on the surface with a minimum of 5 grams per ton. The report states that the vein is expected to become a combination open pit and underground operation upon further geological study and exploration activities. There are also four shear zones recognized in the area.
Mexus Gold US (MXSG), closed Monday's trading session at $0.37, up 32.14%, on 543,332 volume with 108 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 301,420 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.03/$0.475.

NeoStem, Inc. (NBS)
RedChip reported last week on NeoStem, Inc. (NBS), SmallCap Network, Buzz Stocks, Day Trade Alert, SmarTrend Newsletters, Greenbackers, StreetInsider, AllPennyStocks, Bull Warrior Stocks did earlier, and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
NeoStem, Inc. is an emerging leader in the fast growing cell therapy market. Continuing to develop and build on their core capabilities in cell therapy, the Company's multi-faceted business strategy combines a state-of-the-art contract development and manufacturing subsidiary, Progenitor Cell Therapy, LLC (PCT), with a medically important cell therapy product development program. Their contract development and manufacturing service business supports the development of proprietary cell therapy products. NeoStem has their corporate headquarters in New York, New York.
The Company's most clinically advanced therapeutic is AMR-001. It is undergoing development at Amorcyte, LLC (100 percent NeoStem owned) which NeoStem acquired in October of 2011. Amorcyte is developing a cell therapy for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and is enrolling patients in a Phase 2 trial to investigate AMR-001's efficacy in preserving heart function after a heart attack.
Athelos Corp., approximately 80 percent-owned by NeoStem's subsidiary, PCT, is collaborating with Becton-Dickinson in the early clinical exploration of a T-cell therapy for autoimmune conditions. Additionally, pre-clinical assets include NeoStem's VSEL™ Technology (very small embryonic-like stem cells) platform and their mesenchymal stem cell product candidate for regenerative medicine - pluripotent adult stem cells that can regenerate tissues and potentially treat conditions ranging from macular degeneration to liver regeneration to osteoporosis (exclusive worldwide license).
NeoStem's service business and pipeline of proprietary cell therapy products work together. The Company acquired Progenitor Cell Therapy (PCT) to bring additional cell therapy expertise in house and to develop a "one-stop-shop" worldwide network of cell therapy.
Last week, NeoStem announced that data from their collaborative studies with the University of Michigan School of Dentistry further expands the therapeutic potential of their proprietary regenerative cell therapy product, VSEL™, by demonstrating bone regeneration capabilities in a study published online ahead of print in the journal Stem Cells and Development (DOI: 10.1089/scd.2012.0327). The paper highlights that human VSEL stem cells form human bone when implanted in the bone tissue of SCID mice.
Moreover, last week, NeoStem announced that a new article published by the International Scholarly Research Network provides further evidence that AMR-001, the Company's lead product candidate via their Amorcyte subsidiary, appears capable of preserving heart muscle function following a large myocardial infarction. Amorcyte demonstrated in their Phase 1 trial that AMR-001 preserved heart muscle function when a therapeutic dose of cells was administered. No patient experienced deterioration in heart muscle function who received 10 million cells or more; 30 to 40 percent of patients not receiving a therapeutic dose did. The new study shows that cardiac muscle function sparing effects are evident even earlier after treatment than previously shown.
NeoStem, Inc. (NBS), closed Monday's trading at $0.7075, up 0.35%, on 1,089,086 volume with 1,016 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,145,646 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.30/$0.90.

VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (VSTA). Today, VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. closed trading at $0.75, up 12.61%, on 1,200 volume with 3 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 168, and its 52-week low/high is $0.06/$3.15.
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.
VistaGen's lead drug candidate, AV-101, is in Phase Ib development in the U.S. for treatment of neuropathic pain, a serious and chronic condition causing pain after an injury or disease of the peripheral or central nervous system.
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.

A recent article in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News, the world’s number one biotech publisher, carried a good report on Cardium Therapeutics and Generx, a Cardium product candidate. Generx is a DNA-based angiogenic growth factor therapeutic used to stimulate the growth of supplemental collateral blood vessels in the hearts of patients with advanced coronary artery disease. Superior to medicines that only provide transient relief of symptoms, Generx is designed to actually enhance myocardial blood flow in heart patients without having to resort to invasive surgical procedures. Availability of such a treatment option is especially important in many parts of the world where more elaborate procedures are not readily available or affordable.
The article explains how patients with coronary artery disease (angina) have had the Generx Ad5FGF-4 vector infused into their coronary arteries. Cardium researchers found that patients with more severe coronary artery disease responded better than those with less severe disease. The fact that a medicine’s effectiveness increases with the severity of disease might be considered encouraging, but researchers wanted to know why this was happening. They found that multiple blockages in a coronary artery, like a prolonged blockage, causes vasodilation, exposing more vessels and more surface area, along with increased vessel permeability. This allows enhanced Generx uptake, increasing its effectiveness. More importantly, the Coxsackie Adenovirus Receptor (CAR), normally buried in the tight junction, is exposed.
Gabor Rubanyi, M.D., Ph.D., and CSO of Cardium Therapeutics, summarized the finding: “When there is ischemia or any injury, then these tight junctions loosen up and these proteins all of a sudden are exposed and can bind the virus. Transfection starts with adenovirus fiber protein attaching to this receptor.”
It’s a good example of Cardium’s ongoing efforts to understand the underlying nature of genes and the human body, allowing improvements and new discoveries that continue to drive the company’s progress.

Based in Toronto, healthcare provider GreeneStone focuses much of its services on the mental health of employees for its growing list of corporate clients. These services include treatment programs for addiction, eating disorders, and other mental health issues that are now being recognized as significantly detrimental to a company’s bottom line. Up-front investment in evaluating and treating mental and emotional conditions is increasingly being seen as a wise business decision. It’s a movement picking up steam in both the U.S. and Canada, as gathering statistics point to the seriousness of the problem.
In Canada alone, where GreeneStone has all of its treatment facilities, the productivity loss resulting from workplace mental health disorders is estimated to be approximately $20 billion. One survey indicates that roughly 14% of employees say they have been diagnosed as suffering from depression. The Canadian government has now put together a national standard for evaluating the psychological health and safety of the workplace, primarily to help concerned company’s assess hazards and measure the effectiveness of associated programs.
These growing concerns and efforts mesh closely with GreeneStone’s stated mission: To be the trusted partner to organizations and their executive workforce by providing executives with seamless access to the health and performance professionals they need, when they need it, to perform at their best in the workplace. GreeneStone provides treatment and services in addiction, eating disorders, and other areas of mental health, as well as in cardiology, diabetes, endoscopy, nutrition, weight loss, and more. The idea is to provide companies and employees a coordinated, personalized, one-stop care system that meets a full range of mental and physical needs. Instead of leaving it up to individuals to search out and coordinate healthcare services on their own, GreeneStone offers an integrated case-worker managed system that makes getting the right care far easier and better organized.
It’s an approach that has also worked for GreeneStone’s bottom line, giving the company positive revenue growth over the past seven quarters.
