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 0.40%, on 1,600 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 1,610, 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.

The power of communication is one of the most dramatic accomplishments of the modern age, transforming, among other things, the way people are entertained. From the earliest sound recordings and motion pictures, with silent movies giving way to sound, black and white giving way to color, followed eventually by wide screen, stereo, and 3D. It’s all about making people feel like they are part of the event, part of the action. One game-changing technology has inevitably made way for another.
The latest revolution comes from an Ohio based company that is changing the way theaters and theater goers around the world experience movies and broadcast events. The Guitammer Company has invented a way to communicate the subtle, and often not-so-subtle, vibrations inherent in a sporting or musical or movie event that make the person feel like they are there, experiencing it live. It’s the sensation that some people attempt to capture by simply turning up the volume to annoyingly high levels, volumes that can even damage hearing.
But the Guitammer technology has nothing to do with volume, using instead ultra-low frequency sound waves that are felt rather than heard. Sound waves are picked up from the recorded event, such as the enhanced sound from a movie, and are converted to low frequency vibrations that shake the theater seat or even home couches, creating an undeniable feeling of being there, part of the action. It’s a technology they’ve already installed in theaters all over the world, with in-home versions also available.

VistaGen is a California-based biotechnology company actively applying its proprietary human pluripotent stem cell technology to launch a new era of drug rescue, predictive heart and liver toxicology, and drug metabolism screening.
VistaGen’s unique stem cell technology-based Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™ platform currently involves controlled differentiation (development) of pluripotent stem cells into mature, functional human heart and liver cells that can then be used to predict early in development whether a drug candidate has potential toxicity problems. Determination of potential heart and liver toxicity early on in the development process, far earlier than standard tests, means that drug candidates have a chance of being modified for a successful outcome long before resources are expended on costly and time-consuming animal and human clinical studies. Many otherwise promising drug candidates have been shelved due to heart or liver toxicity issues that surfaced well into the development process and even after FDA approval, representing major losses for drug companies.
By generating new chemical variants of small molecule drug candidates that have shown promise, but are currently on hold due to heart or liver toxicity issues, VistaGen can effectively rescue substantial prior investment by others in discovery and development of the once-promising drugs, building an exclusive and valuable portfolio of proprietary rejuvenated drug candidates. VistaGen plans to have economic participation rights to all of the drug rescue variants it develops, benefitting its bottom line as well as its shareholders. The tremendous promise of this approach has prompted the company’s CEO, Shawn Singh, to purchase 100,000 additional common stock shares of the company, bringing his total holdings to 252,174 shares.
Other recent developments include the company’s formalized membership in the Toronto-based Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine’s (CCRM) Industry Consortium. VistaGen aims to expand the commercial applications of their Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube™ platform by building multi-party collaborations with CCRM and members of its Industry Consortium around drug rescue and regenerative medicine opportunities, including pilot nonclinical programs involving blood, heart, liver, and potentially pancreatic beta islet cells. Speaking of these opportunities, Shawn Singh emphasized that such collaborations have the potential to “transform medicine and accelerate significant advances in human health and wellness that stem cell technologies and regenerative medicine promise.”
In addition, the company had earlier announced the completion of a $3.25 million financing commitment from its largest institutional investor, Platinum Long Term Growth VII, LLC.

Few industries have not been touched by the Web and all of the potentials it represents. In the case of Loans4Less, an expanding online mortgage loan broker dealing with residential mortgages, the Web offers a revolution in the way home buyers can shop for mortgages. Unlike some businesses, including many mortgage and real estate businesses, which simply add a Web front-end to their traditional market presence, Loans4Less has made the Web a foundation for its operations, taking full advantage of the latest online technologies. The company sees this as key to growing a devoted fan base, prospects that will become solid customers as they get drawn into the process, becoming comfortable with the company’s information capabilities and trustworthiness.
A good example is the company’s online mortgage calculator and pre-qualifier that provides an easy, flexible, and confidential way for people to get a clear idea of the true costs and fees associated with a new mortgage. Without entering any personal or contact information, viewers can easily manipulate any combination of variables on sliding scales, and see how each is affected by the other, allowing them to arrive at the perfect combination for their needs. All numbers are automatically adjusted to avoid scenarios that are unsupportable, with variables including:
• Purchase Price
• Monthly Payment
• Total Loan Amount
• Loan Term
• Interest Rate
• Property Tax
• Property Insurance
• Down Payment
• Loan Origination Fee
• Loan Points
The system even does graphical breakdowns, showing, among other things, how the loan will amortize over time. Not only do such online capabilities attract customers, they also educate prospects in what to expect, making the eventual loan application process go much more smoothly and satisfactorily for everyone involved, something that builds customer loyalty and word-of-mouth market support.

GreenHunter Energy today updated markets on the status of their wholly owned GreenHunter Water, LLC subsidiary, reporting that the company has put in orders to expand the size of its trucking fleet serving the unconventional shale operators in the Appalachians (Marcellus and Utica plays in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia).
President and COO of GRH, Jonathan Hoopes, commented on the addition of the six new Peterbilt 388 Bobtails (three with 100 bbl vacuum tanks and three with identical tanks certified for HAZMAT), noting that the company is running at full capacity in the region and could really use the new operational muscle. The expansion of the Appalachia truck fleet from a mere five at the outset of 2012, to now 31 transport trucks, is a clear indication of the direction GRH is headed and as more and more regional operators come to know/rely on the exemplary services the company can provide, the fleet will likely expand further.
When you throw in the new GRH disposal facilities slated to come on-line relatively soon, you can see that the company is prepping for increased business volume, balancing out the trucking capacity and disposal capacity ahead of growth perfectly. Today’s announcement is also something of a milestone for regional operations as the company has hitherto lacked certified equipment for handling liquids mixed with hydrocarbons, something which is generally no problem since the vast majority of such hydrocarbon-laced water is usually gravity separated on-site anyways. However, there are some pads in this difficult terrain that don’t have the equipment for this kind of on-site separation and thus GRH can now capture even more market space through the fleet expansion, offering a potentially clutch service to this growing customer-base.
This move basically puts GRH in the oil transport business while riveting on some much-needed capacity in the thriving, hydrocarbon-rich Appalachia region. This region has a solid future for such production, so it makes good sense for the company to be growing their overall infrastructural footprint at this phase. A winning combination of absolutely vital water transport and disposal well services has quickly built up a warm brand identity for the company among sector operators doing difficult work in this difficult region.
In the Appalachians the work is dirty, difficult, and brutal. Companies like GRH, who put the operator’s needs first and have capacity on-site, on time, and ready to go when it’s needed can make a killing here. GreenHunter really has put together an attractive portfolio of Total Water Management Solutions™ for these guys, with several key innovations developed from an operator-centric point of view, like the flexible Frac-Cycle™ system that allows flowback and produced water to be recycled into clean brine or fresh water, their bleeding-edge well head management and compliance solutionRAMCAT™ (Remote Access Management Compliance Asset Tracking), or the company’s latest edition, a completely customizable, 10k plus bbl temporary water storage tank system (complete with robust interlocking steel panels for safe/rapid deployment), the MAG Tank™.
As part of the purchase, GRH has bolstered an existing commercial loan facility with a local bank in the heart of the Appalachians, bumping the window up to $3.3M. GreenHunter expects to take delivery of the new hardware early in 2013 (late January) and will be offering this new capacity to hungry hydrocarbon developers in the region as soon as late Q1.
