Established in 2006, Oramed bases their technology on more than 25 years of research performed by top research scientists at Jerusalem's Hadassah Medical Center. The Company's corporate and R&D headquarters are in Jerusalem. Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board.

Oramed is working to revolutionize the treatment of diabetes through their patented flagship product ORMD-0801.

Oramed also conducted another Phase 2a study with Type 1 diabetic patients and positive results were reported in July of 2009. Phase 2B clinical trials commenced in the first quarter of 2009 in South Africa.

Oramed's pipeline currently consists of an insulin suppository (ORMD-0802) and an oral method for delivery of GLP1 analog (ORMD-0901) and the influenza vaccine (ORMD-1001). The Company's unique oral delivery technology serves as a platform for other vaccines and medications currently available exclusively in injection form.

In February, Oramed announced that John M. Amatruda, M.D. joined Oramed's Scientific Advisory Board.

Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CORX)

Today we are highlighting Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CORX), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a neuroscience company focused on novel drug therapies for treating psychiatric disorders, neurological diseases and sleep apnea. The Company is pioneering a class of proprietary pharmaceuticals called AMPAKINE® compounds. Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board and they have their headquarters in Irvine, California.

AMPAKINE® compounds act to increase the strength of signals at connections between brain cells. The loss of these connections is thought to be responsible for memory and behavior problems in Alzheimer's disease. Many psychiatric diseases, including schizophrenia, occur because of imbalances in the brain's neurotransmitter system. These imbalances may improve by using the AMPAKINE technology.

Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. develops AMPAKINE® compounds for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, schizophrenia, depression, respiratory depression caused by opiate analgesics, and possibly sleep apnea. The Company's AMPAKINE technology consists of two groups of compounds designated as "low impact" and "high impact".

Today, Cortex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that they entered into an agreement with Biovail Laboratories International SRL. Biovail acquired certain AMPAKINE compounds and the rights to the patent filing for respiratory depression and vaso-occlusive crises associated with sickle cell disease. The transaction includes a purchase price of $10,000,000 and additional payments of up to $15,000,000 based upon defined clinical development milestones.

Cortex retains all rights to the non-acquired AMPAKINE compounds for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric diseases that historically have been part of their portfolio.

"As a result of this transaction, we will be in the position to continue the oral Phase IIa sleep apnea trial with CX1739 and to initiate a Phase II clinical trial for the treatment of ADHD very soon," commented Mark A Varney. "Additionally, we are pushing ahead to develop the CX2007 and CX2076 series of compounds and move one of those analogs into the clinic as soon as possible."

Cortex Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CORX) closed Friday's session at $0.2160 up 27.06 percent. Volume was 1,351,248.

CNS Response, Inc. (CNSO)

Today we are highlighting CNS Response, Inc. (CNSO), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, CNS Response, Inc. has developed the first proven quantitative approach to guiding the treatment of patients with behavioral disorders. The Company developed a patented data-analysis capability that, with the help of a simple, non-invasive EEG, will analyze a patient's brain waves and compare the results to an extensive patient outcomes database. This Referenced-EEG (rEEG®) is used to match medications to a patient's individual physiology. CNS Response, Inc. has their corporate headquarters in Aliso Viejo, California.

The rEEG® report provides a psychiatrist with guidance to personalize medication regimens for a patient, based on the patient's own brain physiology. CNS Response developed biomarkers, which describe the probable effectiveness of specific drugs based on the unique electrical signature of a patient's brain. These markers are to provide informative, patient-specific information to physicians treating mental illnesses.

The rEEG® findings present in a brief, two-page report. The report characterizes any underlying abnormality in the brain, identifies resistance or sensitivity to major drug classes and individual medications. The rEEG® summaries provide to a treating physician neuropsychiatric sensitivity and resistance data based on treatment response of individuals that have biomarkers similar to that of their patient.

Eleven trials involving 445 treatment resistant patients have been conducted. All of the trials validated the efficacy of the rEEG profile in guiding treatment. The method has been over 75 percent effective in treating patients with various CNS disorders that failed to respond to traditional treatments.

CNS Response technologies are also undergoing application in drug research and development. rEEG® can undergo use to improve the success of FDA clinical trials, to provide insight on effective therapeutic dosing of investigational drugs, and to identify additional indications for psychiatric medications. It can also undergo use to provide insight into effective drug combinations, and to identify psychiatric indications for non-psychiatric medications, to manage adverse neuropsychiatric effects of other medications and for other benefits.

CNS Response, Inc. (CNSO) closed Friday's trading session at $1.15 on no volume.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.08, for no change. Their volume today was 21,400 shares. 

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

(KBLB) is working with university scientists and laboratories to create these new polymers that have potentially broad applications in the multi-billion dollar marketplace for high performance polymers. The company sponsors and collaborates on research projects within university genetic engineering laboratories as a means of utilizing the greatest minds in their field.

Spider Silk is one of the strongest fibers produced in nature. The spider's repelling silk is of particular commercial interest since it is both extremely strong and extremely flexible. Although exciting commercial opportunities exist for the natural polymer, there is no known way to produce the fibers in commercial quantity. KraigLabs, in cooperation with two leading universities, has acquired proprietary genetic engineering technology to unlock the mystery.

CEO Kim Thompson leads the company with formal education in the fields of economics and law. With interest in genetic engineering dating back to the 1970s, Mr. Thompson has invented a pending provisional patent application for a number of organic polymers. This patent application has been assigned to benefit Kraig Biocraft and is a central part of the company's efforts in bringing those inventions to the market. Disclaimer

General Environmental Management, Inc.’s (GEVI) Expansion into Water Treatment and Waste-to-Energy Technology

General Environmental Management, Inc., the respected veteran which has constructed one of the most effectively operated hazardous waste field services, has proved its ability to obtain and maintain a leading-growth profile within the industry. Since its inception, the Company has grown at a compounded annual rate of 48% to generate annual revenues of $37M from only $2.3M

The Company, seeking to obtain greater returns for its shareholders, has decided to shift the primary focus of operations to the rapidly growing and more lucrative water treatment and waste-to-energy markets. To this end, it has retained General Pacific Partners (GPP) as financial advisor to steer the emerging segment by helping to analyze acquisition opportunities in CA and the Western US as they develop.

With significant progress being made towards this objective, GEVI has completed the acquisition of one of California’s oldest and most profitable water treatment businesses, the Santa Clara Waste Water (SCWW) Corporation, which has been successfully operating for more than five decades. GEVI has also engaged an undisclosed senior lending facility interested in enabling the Company to pursue this agenda in conjunction with such strategic acquisitions.

A $120B industry in the US, the water industry here represented has a projected growth rate of 6-7% within the next year, and as a global market represents over $400B in business each year, growing at a pace alongside population.

Similarly the compounded annual growth rate for the global waste-to-energy market is projected to be around 6.7% in the next five years, and represents $19.9B worldwide.

With increasing funding and demand igniting a firestorm in alternative energy, these seem shrewd moves by GEVI to capitalize on related, environmentally friendly businesses, particularly with long-time sponsor-turned-advisor GPP contributing its vast experience and substantial analytical resources to insuring that GEVI is able to identify the appropriate growth opportunities.

General Environmental Management has a superb management team of dedicated professionals that have clearly proven national sales, consolidation and integration experience. With six major acquisitions notched into its belt, thanks to this management expertise, GEVI looks to expand into the higher-margin segment of the waste and water treatment.
