The QualityStocks Daily

Aethlon Medical Inc. (AEMD)

OTC Picks, PennyOmega.com, DrStockPick.com, and Red Chip reported earlier on Aethlon Medical Inc. (AEMD), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Founded in 1991, Aethlon Medical Inc. creates diagnostic and therapeutic filtration devices to improve the health of individuals afflicted with infectious disease and cancer. They are the developer of the Hemopurifier®, a first-in-class medical device to treat infectious disease. The Hemopurifier® removes harmful substances from the blood. Aethlon Medical Inc. trades on the OTCBB. They have their corporate headquarters in San Diego, California.

The Hemopurifier® addresses the treatment of drug and vaccine resistant viruses. The Company's primary clinical and commercialization focus is to establish the Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance and prolong the benefit of traditional infectious disease drug regimens. The Company directs their international initiatives towards naturally evolving pandemic threats, and chronic infectious disease conditions. These include Hepatitis–C (HCV) and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

The Hemopurifier® assists the immune response in combating infectious disease through the selective adsorption of circulating viruses and immunosuppressive proteins. In the case of pandemic influenza, the Hemopurifier® has previously proven effective in capturing the reconstructed Spanish flu of 1918 virus (1918rv), and the H5N1 avian influenza virus (Bird Flu).

Third party research institutes have verified the capability of the device to capture Dengue Hemorrhagic Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Virus, Lassa Hemorrhagic Virus, West Nile Virus, H5N1 Avian Influenza Virus, 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, the reconstructed Spanish Flu of 1918 Virus, and Monkeypox Virus, which serves as a model for human Smallpox infection. The Hemopurifier® also holds promise in cancer care. Research studies verify the Hemopurifier® effectively captures immunosuppressive exosomes secreted by tumors to kill-off immune cells.

The design of the multi–patented platform technology is for the single use removal of viral pathogens from blood. The cartridge mimics the natural response of clearing infectious viruses and related toxins prior to cell and organ infection. It is usable with portable pumps or within the established infrastructure of dialysis machines located in hospitals and clinics.

Aethlon Medical, Inc. announced in September that they initiated a relationship with Kentucky Bioprocessing LLC. This is to establish processes to support large-scale production of the active affinity agents immobilized within the Aethlon Hemopurifier®. Affinity agents allow the Hemopurifer® to capture selectively a broad-spectrum of viruses from blood and other fluids.

On December 15, 2009, Aethlon Medical, Inc. announced that Dr. Jeff Schorey and Dr. Wayne Comper joined the Science Advisory Board of Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI). Dr. Schorey and Dr. Comper are leading researchers in the exosome field. ESI, the wholly owned subsidiary of Aethlon Medical, was recently formed to leverage the discovery that the Hemopurifier® is capable of capturing exosomes secreted by solid tumors, lymphomas, and leukemia to suppress the immune response in cancer patients. The targeted removal of circulating exosomes to inhibit cancer related immune suppression could increase patient responsiveness to both immunotherapy and chemotherapy.

Aethlon Medical Inc. (AEMD) closed today at $0.30 down 1.64 percent. Volume was 233,022.

Cardo Medical, Inc. (CDOM)

Today we choose to highlight Cardo Medical, Inc. (CDOM), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Cardo Medical, Inc. is a company engaged in the development of orthopedic medical devices. The Company develops reconstructive orthopedic and spinal surgery products through advanced engineering. Their focus is on product development, marketing, and distribution within the U.S. market. Cardo Medical, Inc. trades on the OTCBB and they have their corporate headquarters in Beverly Hills, California. They also have a research and development office in Clifton, New Jersey.

Cardo Medical, Inc.'s commitment is to using their innovation to make complex and difficult surgical procedures easier, more reproducible, and safer, with predictable long-lasting outcomes.  The Company's engineering personnel collaborates closely with leading surgeons around the country to create products that reduce or eliminate joint pain and allow their patients to achieve more active lives. Cardo Medical works in small, focused development teams in concert with physicians to develop products from concept to launch rapidly. 

Their Orthopedics Division produces the Align 360® Unicompartmental Knee System, the Align 360® Patello-Femoral Knee System, the Align 360® Total Knee System, and the Press Fit Total Hip System. Their Spine Division produces the Cervical Plate System and the Pedicle Screw System. For Surgeon Resources the Company has their Align 360® Unicompartmental Knee System Technique. The Align 360 System is a minimally invasive technique designed to preserve bone stock, ensure highly reproducible bone cuts, and accurately align components under optimal tension.  The system is for cemented use only.

For Patient Resources, the Company offers their Align 360® Unicompartmental Knee Surgery option. This is partial knee replacement surgery (Unicompartmental Knee Replacement). Knee arthritis often affects only one side of a knee. The remaining parts of the knee can be healthy. A surgeon can use the Align 360® Unicompartmental Knee System, which resurfaces only the damaged part, saving the rest of the knee with its healthy cartilage. The implant can restore function to a knee and relieve pain. Often this procedure is done in lieu of a full knee replacement.

In October, Cardo Medical announced that they acquired substantially all of the assets of Vertebron Inc., a spinal implant device company located in Stratford, Connecticut, for $1.3 million in cash. Vertebron designs, develops, manufactures, and sells spinal implant products focused on fusion technology for the lumbar and cervical spine as well as motion preservation technologies. Cardo Medical will retain 100 percent ownership of all Vertebron's implant technologies for spinal surgery. They have also acquired all intellectual property rights owned by Vertebron. This includes more than 20 U.S. issued patents and patent applications.

Cardo Medical, Inc. (CDOM) closed Thursday's session at $0.8510 on no volume.

Emisphere Technologies, Inc. (EMIS)

Greenbackers reported this month on Emisphere Technologies, Inc. (EMIS), SmallCap Voice, M2 Communications, and OTC Picks did earlier, and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Emisphere is a biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the unique and improved delivery of therapeutic molecules or nutritional supplements using their proprietary Eligen® Technology. The Eligen® Technology can undergo application to the oral route of administration as well as other delivery pathways. These include buccal, rectal, inhalation, intra-vaginal, or transdermal. Emisphere Technologies, Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin board and they have their headquarters in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey.

The Company's core business strategy is to use their proprietary Eligen® Technology to develop novel oral forms of injectable drugs or poorly absorbed compounds. Eligen® Technology improves the body's ability to absorb select molecules. Their carriers provide a demonstrated safe method of chaperoning molecules without affecting their biological benefit. Many of these molecules currently deliver via injection, such as salmon calcitonin. In certain cases, their benefits are limited. This is due to poor bioavailability, slow onset of action, or variable absorption, such as Vitamin B12.

Emisphere Technologies, Inc.'s pipeline includes product candidates that have reached clinical development. They also include a variety of preclinical research and development programs. They are carrying out these programs both in collaboration with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and independently. Marquee products in the Company's pipeline include an improved formulation of oral Vitamin B12, oral calcitonin for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis (in Phase III development with Novartis), and oral GLP-1 and GLP-1 analogs for Type 2 diabetes.

On Monday, December 21, 2009, Emisphere Technologies announced a meta-analysis published in the December 2009 edition of Rheumatology Reports examining independent evidence of the analgesic action of the hormone calcitonin. This publication restates the potential of calcitonin in filling a significant unmet need for alternative treatments for persistent musculoskeletal pain.

Oral salmon calcitonin uses the proprietary absorption enhancing Eligen® Drug Delivery Technology. It is undergoing study in osteoarthritis and osteoporosis by Novartis Pharma AG and Nordic Bioscience. Scientists from Nordic Bioscience were involved in the preparation of the meta-analysis.

"An ideal treatment with an optimal efficacy, safety and convenience profile is not available for the musculoskeletal pain associated with such conditions as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. This review of the literature highlights the clear unmet medical need that could be addressed by Emisphere's oral salmon calcitonin product," said Michael V. Novinski, President and Chief Executive Officer, Emisphere Technologies.

Emisphere Technologies, Inc. (EMIS) closed Thursday's session at $1.06 up 7.07 percent. Volume was 551,118.

MedaSorb Technologies Corporation (MSBT)

PennyOmega.com, Hyper Growth Stock, Penny Invest, and StockEgg.com reported earlier on MedaSorb Technologies Corporation (MSBT), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

MedaSorb Technologies Corporation, and their operating subsidiary CytoSorbents, Inc., is a therapeutic device company. They are engaged in clinical trials to treat severe sepsis, often called "overwhelming infection," with a novel blood-purification device called CytoSorb™. The Company's management team includes individuals with expertise in the fields of polymer research and development, medical device development, business management and entrepreneurship, blood purification, high-volume medical device manufacturing, and corporate finance. MedaSorb Technologies Corporation became public June 30, 2006 through a merger transaction with Gilder Enterprises. They list on the OTC Bulletin Board and they have their headquarters in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey.

MedaSorb, operating exclusively through Cytosorbents Inc., focuses on the development of products to support healthcare professionals in the treatment of complex medical conditions. CytoSorbents Inc. has developed a new adsorbent platform technology. This is for removal of toxins from blood and physiologic fluids.

The Company's products consist of porous, adsorbent polymer beads. These beads target molecules up to 50,000 Daltons, which are associated with sepsis. The belief is that these cytokines are largely untouched by current blood purification techniques, including state of the art dialysis technology. CytoSorbents' near term focus is achieving regulatory approval of CytoSorb™. They expect to use this for the treatment of sepsis, cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, organ donation and drug overdoses. These all have a common theme, which is blood borne toxins. 

Their first product will be a medical device containing their proprietary polymer beads. Their adsorbent polymer bead technology has a porous surface, and uses size-selectivity for filtering toxins from blood and physiologic fluids. The polymer beads are a touch larger than a grain of salt and are highly compatible with blood.

MedaSorb Technologies Corporation and their wholly owned subsidiary CytoSorbents, Inc., announced in October that they raised $1.3 million in the exercise of the warrant attached to the Series B financing completed in August 2008.  The funds are helping the Company finance their ongoing European Sepsis Trial and the CE Mark application process.

MedaSorb Technologies Corporation is currently conducting their European Sepsis Trial. This trial is a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial using their flagship CytoSorb™ device to treat up to 100 patients with severe sepsis in the setting of respiratory failure. The Company will seek CE Mark approval and commercialization of CytoSorb™ in the European Union, pending a successful trial.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) Today, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. closed trading at $0.0126, for no change. Their volume today was 170,000 shares.

NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NTWK) Sets International Standard for Leasing and Finance Solutions

NetSol Technologies, Inc., the established provider of business services and enterprise software solutions to a growing global market, developed the NetSol Financial Suite (NFS) as a framework for robust and highly customized solutions that offer tight integration with existing systems across environments with multiple assets and languages.

One major, fully-integrated component of the NFS is the industry-renowned LeaseSoft, NetSol’s suite of end-to-end leasing and finance software solutions. Developed for finance and lending industries around the globe, NetSol Technologies Limited has created a unique suite of Enterprise IT Managed solutions based on the proven LeaseSoft technology.

LeaseSoft Asset is a specialized finance system, designed from the ground up to be a web-enabled package that harnesses the underlying technology that has made the NFS so successful.
The software is modular and therefore highly scalable while being robust enough to make it a clear industry leader in asset finance systems around the world. With an emphasis on accuracy and flexibility, LeaseSoft Asset was developed for tight integration with LeaseSoft Portal and Document Manager.

With the capacity to leverage additional applications for greater overall profitability in a way that allows for an increased variety of potential uses, LeaseSoft Asset is able to meet the demands of a growing and changing market on a stand-alone basis while interfacing seamlessly with external systems.

LeaseSoft Asset supports all the basic needs of captive finance, vendor and banking companies. Suitable for a wide range of installment credit lenders, including high volume lenders, LeaseSoft Asset was tailor-made for leasing, operating leasing, hire purchase, motor, finance and corporate products.

LeaseSoft Evolve was created with smaller finance companies in mind, especially those doing installment lending management, as a leasing loan administration toolkit which comes pre-configured, thus allowing rapid implementation into a company’s workflow.

Evolve is designed to be a cost-effective solution for business ranging from start-ups to established operations looking to streamline their process, including businesses with component broker and in-house-based finance. Because LeaseSoft Evolve allows for the easy creation and management of contracts throughout their life-cycle, and does so with a simple and solitary database structure, service is optimized and risk is reduced while allowing personnel to focus on other tasks.

Designed to be a comprehensive and powerful finance contract management system, this largely automated and web-enabled environment allows for easy management of multiple simultaneous contracts with little to no human intervention.

The ability to service every aspect of its targeted solution set, including uploading and cross checking, lookups, payouts, underwriting and even direct debiting in an automated and hands-free manner, leaves only tasks such as the amendment or early settlement of contracts to the end-user, and even in such cases allows for simple outsourcing to third party agencies.

In light of these trends, we expect that our first quarter ending December 31, 2009 will show revenues of approximately $28.0 million and positive adjusted EBITDA.”

Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. (SMEV) Signs Multi-Million Dollar International Distribution Agreement

Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc., makers of the high pressurized dry water massage and relaxation station SpaCapsule, was pleased to announce today that it has completed negotiations with the French company Zen & O. As a result of their negotiations, Simulated Environment Concepts secured a multi-million dollar deal to manufacture 250 SpaCapsules over the next four years. This agreement expands the company’s reach into central Europe.

“This is a significant, multimillion dollar contract for a minimum of 250 units,” stated Dr. Ella Frenkel, President and CEO of Simulated Environment Concepts. “It’s a clear indication that the personal wellness industry continues to thrive globally even through the current recession. We began to work on the contract in May of 2009 and after mutual visits between France and the USA we signed the contract and secured a payment this December for the first order of the New Year.”
Zen & O is a French company in the forefront of fitness. With various subsidiaries and partnerships, the company is involved in fitness and retail operations, providing on-the-go massage at retail locations throughout Europe.

“SpaCapsule will become a centerpiece of our ‘Lady Fitness’ operations,” said Harve Rivoal, Lady Fitness Centers, CEO, who operates 54 centers in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Spain. “Our customers wish for a total fitness experience — from workout to massage to cellulite treatments. We love the fact that SpaCapsule can offer an excellent range of services without adding additional personnel. Because the SpaCapsule does not require attendants, we anticipate increased revenues with reduction in payroll and associated costs.”

Retail operations will use the SpaCapsule to provide massage and cellulite treatment to shoppers in malls. Stephane Tournier, a manager at Aquadetente, the mall operations arm of Zen & O, commented, “The uniqueness of SpaCapsule is that an individual can have a dry aqua massage without undressing or getting wet. While in the SpaCapsule the customer is watching video, listening to music, and inhaling scented oxygen. If the customer wants, he or she can even use their own iPod. We are gearing to open many more locations throughout France and Spain. For the past four years we used a competing technology made by AquaMassage to test out and prove the concept. However now, we will use SpaCapsule exclusively because of its technological and aesthetic superiority. This is indeed a beautiful machine that utilizes the latest computer technology for accounting and usage tracking”

“This contract is a significant milestone for us,” stated Dr. Spivak, Managing Partner at Simulated Environment Concepts who was extensively involved in the negotiation and execution of the agreement. “This commitment will provide revenue stability for many years to come. In addition, the European retail locations will serve as mini ‘showrooms’ for any new customers throughout Europe and undoubtedly generate more sales. We are very excited.”

Dr. Spivak added, “This is an exciting finale to 2009. We are currently assembling the first order of the New Year and anticipate on-time delivery. We’re also planning strategy to support and increase our new affiliate’s sales with new marketing initiatives and incentives.”

China Yongxin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CYXN) Announces 2009 Projected Financials

China Yongxin Pharmaceuticals Inc., a leading producer and distributor of Chinese traditional medicines, pharmaceuticals, health food, cosmetics, and related products, today announced projected financial results for the year ending December 31, 2009.

Although net income for the year is projected to increase 35% to $5.4 million, over 2008, a shift in sales strategy has led to a reduction in projected revenues. 2009 revenues are now projected to be $46.1 million, down 22% from $59.1 million in 2008. The company’s sales strategy is being shifted from wholesale to the retail and medical facilities sector due to the uncertain direction of the National Medical Policy. Revenues from the company’s retail drug stores increased by 30% over 2008, but this was not sufficient to overcome the impact of the decrease in wholesale operations. The increase in net income is due primarily to higher margin retail and medical facilities sales, the new area of focus.

Company chairman and CEO, Mr. Yongxin Liu, commented that wholesale business was impacted by customers waiting for specifics on the new healthcare reform plan. “However, on August 18th, the Chinese government issued China’s Essential Drug List (EDL) which included over 300 commonly used pharmaceuticals that will be subsidized by the government to provide easier access to all citizens. We are pleased that China Yongxin is a retailer or distributor of 295 of the products on that list. We are further encouraged by the increasing momentum toward healthcare reform and the government’s efforts to boost domestic spending. During 2009, we also added 12 high margin pharmaceutical products with exclusive distribution rights in Jilin province and we expect this to drive market share gains and growth during the coming year.”

China Yongxin Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1993, but didn’t begin retail operations until 2004. In 2005, it gained franchise rights from one of the world’s largest drug chains for China’s Jilin Province. By the end of 2007, it had become one of the fastest growing drug retailers in China through its chain of 93 drug outlets, as well as wholesale distribution and manufacturing operations in Northeastern China.
