In April of this year, Advaxis' lead construct, ADXS-HPV, was selected as the Best Therapeutic Vaccine (approved or in development) at the 5th Annual Vaccine Industry Excellence (ViE) Awards by the vaccine industry and the journal Expert Reviews of Vaccines. ADXS-HPV is undergoing evaluation in four clinical trials that are open for enrollment for HPV-associated diseases: CIN 2/3 (US study, Clinical Trials.gov Identifier NCT01116245), locally advanced cervical cancer (GOG/NCI US study, Clinical Trials.gov Identifier NCT01266460), recurrent/refractory cervical cancer (India), and head & neck cancer (University of Liverpool/CRUK UK study, Clinical Trials.gov Identifier NCT0CT01598792).
More than15 distinct constructs are in various stages of development, developed directly by Advaxis and via strategic collaborations with recognized centers of excellence such as the National Cancer Institute, Cancer Research – UK, the Wistar Institute, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of British Columbia, the Karolinska Institutet, and others.
At the end of October 2012, Advaxis updated preliminary data from an ongoing randomized 110 patient Phase 2 trial of ADXS-HPV taking place in India in women with recurrent/refractory cervical cancer who have failed previous cytotoxic therapy. Dr. Robert Petit, Advaxis, presented the update in an oral presentation on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 27th Annual Meeting in North Bethesda, Maryland.

Dolly Varden Silver Corp. (DV.V)
Streetwise Reports reported previously on Dolly Varden Silver Corp. (DV.V), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Dolly Varden Silver Corp. is a mineral exploration company whose shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company focuses on the exploration and development of the Dolly Varden silver project located in northwestern British Columbia (BC). In 1910, the Dolly Varden Mine was discovered by four prospectors of Scandinavian descent. The name 'Dolly Varden' is from a heroine of Dickens' Barnaby Rudge. Dolly Varden Silver has their headquarters in Vancouver, BC.
The Dolly Varden silver project consists of 9,400 hectares. This includes four well-defined high-grade silver deposits; two have seen historic production totaling 20 million ounces. All four deposits have remaining historic silver resources and are in the same geologic setting as the past-producing Eskay Creek deposit.
The Company has two strategies for creating value at the Dolly Varden silver project. One is to confirm and expand the existing historic silver resources with the goal to re-start the historic deposits. The second is to explore a major untested Eskay Creek-type gold and silver rich VMS target at Dolly Varden. The Dolly Varden Mine properties have produced assays of ore as high as 2200 ounces (over 72 kilograms) of silver per ton. The mines have historic production of 20 M oz Ag.
Dolly Varden Silver owns 100 percent of the Dolly Varden Mines historic silver property. This property is best considered an advanced exploration stage property with well-understood targets. Mine restarts will require the discovery of additional silver mineral resources and the confirmation of historic mineral resources that were known at the termination of mining in 1959.
An historic resource estimate completed on the properties in 1986 estimated 5.7 M ounces of silver (proven and probable) and 8.8 M oz of silver (possible) (Estimated by Derry Michener Booth and Wahl in 1986). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify this historical estimate as current mineral reserves or mineral resources (as those terms are defined in NI 43-101) and Dolly Varden Silver is not treating this historical estimate as current mineral reserves or current mineral resources.
The objective of the Company's exploration work is to confirm and reclassify the historic resources as current mineral resources, and to expand the resource to a target of 40 to 50 million ounces of Silver. If successful, the necessary economic and technical studies would be undertaken to determine if the deposit(s) could become a viable mining operation.
Dolly Varden Silver Corp. (DV.V), closed Monday’s session at $0.205, down 2.38%, on 51,299 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.12/$0.47.

When TNI BioTech recently signed an agreement to open an Oncology & Infectious Disease Clinic at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Malawi, in southwestern Africa, it reflected an ongoing change in the attitude of the industrialized world toward Africa. Once largely ignored because of its troubled political history and lack of infrastructure and technology, Africa is suddenly rising on the world’s economic radar. The second largest land mass on the globe, with the second largest population of any continent, Africa has been seeing rapid economic growth, and has been compared to Asia in its potential.
In a Seeking Alpha article, “The Case For Investing In Africa”, Peter Thoms points out that Africa’s recent economic growth is just one of the reasons that investors should take a long look at the continent, and cites a number of other attractive factors:
• Africa’s immense natural wealth
• Africa’s youthful demographics
• Africa’s growing embrace of technology
• Africa’s developing integration with the global economy
Africa is made up of many diverse countries, each with its own challenges, but challenges that, for the above reasons, are now being viewed as early-game opportunities.
In the case of TNI BioTech’s agreement with Malawi to open a clinic, the new clinic will not only be important to the people of Malawi, through greatly improved cancer treatment, but will also allow TNIB, in conjunction with GB Oncology & Imaging Group, to study the interaction between infections and cancer by promoting cutting-edge research aimed at pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infection-related cancers in Africa. In particular, it is believed that IRT-103, TNIB’s active immunotherapy that works by activating a patient’s immune system against HIV/AIDS and tumor cells, can be demonstrated to be capable of saving millions of lives.
In short, as Africa rises, so can the companies and individuals with the foresight to invest early in this massive and rich part of the world that is no longer being called the dark continent.

For well over a hundred years, industrialized nations have continued to export a wide range of manufactured goods and associated technologies to developing countries throughout the world. More than altruism, it was viewed as an immediate economic opportunity, but also as a way of gradually lifting less developed countries into the modern world where, it was hoped, they would become even better customers. In parallel with this was the export of Western ideas: democracy, capitalism, the value of abundance, and the value of consumption.
America has played a leading role in all of this, with some unintended consequences. Because, along with all of the tractors and electronics, along with all of the democracy and marketplace economics, America has successfully exported the western lifestyle, which, as we now know, has some challenges that many people didn’t think much about a hundred or even fifty years ago; things like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes, diseases that are now epidemic in the U.S.
The U.S. and industrialized countries have now had some experience with the consequences of a western lifestyle, and so they have a good idea of what to expect as developing countries start to go down the same path. As a result, they recognize developing markets in these developing countries. For example, it is now estimated that fully 80 percent of future increases in coronary heart disease will occur outside the U.S.
For Cardium Therapeutics, and its lead product Generx, the spread of western ailments to developing parts of the world means an increasing need for what the company and Generx can offer. Generx is a DNA-based growth factor that is designed to actually stimulate the growth of new blood vessels around the heart. In the U.S., the need for increased heart blood flow is often met with expensive and technically complicated surgery, together with long-term followup, the kind of things that are often not readily available in developing parts of the world. But Generx involves none of that, making it a strong candidate for millions of people who could otherwise go untreated.

The idea of a turnaround is often associated with dysfunctional companies being purchased by outsiders or otherwise given new management, and then being transformed with a change in product, structure, or philosophy, providing a fresh and profitable direction for what had been a losing asset. If coming from the outside, the process can be extremely lucrative, allowing a purchase or major stake at bargain basement prices, and then rapidly growing that investment through the application of proven principles. Individuals and companies who have taught themselves how to identify and resolve corporate weaknesses stand to profit handsomely once they have the resources to get in on the action.
VistaGen Therapeutics seeks to apply the turnaround concept in a creative new way that could end up turning millions and perhaps billions of dollars in lost pharmaceutical development into positive revenue. Using their proprietary stem cell technology, VistaGen has been able to develop a revolutionary bioassay platform that allows drug developers to accurately test for things like heart toxicity right in the laboratory, prior to lengthy clinical testing and well before going to the huge expense and risk of taking a drug to market. Such early in-lab testing allows developers to carefully guide the initial formulation of drug candidates, providing an effective new way to develop drugs and even rescue previously shelved drug candidates.
VistaGen’s stated goal is to use their advanced stem cell technology to build a diverse drug pipeline consisting of new, proprietary small molecule “drug rescue variants” which are as effective as once promising drug candidates but without the heart or liver toxicity that caused them to be put on the shelf. They are, in effect, looking to identify and then turn around approaches that had been considered largely lost. They believe each lead drug rescue variant will have the potential to be a new drug candidate in which they plan to have economic participation rights (up front and development milestone payments and royalties on commercial sales).
Considering that it can easily take on average investment of $800 million to $1.7 billion, plus 12 to 15 years, before a new drug candidate reaches the market, all of which can be lost due to unexpected and often late-discovered heart or liver toxicity problems, the value of a novel in vitro technology, a Clinical Trial in a Test Tube™, that can help rescue part or the entirety of that large investment is clear.
