Alveron Energy Corp‏. (AECP)

Today we are highlighting Alveron Energy Corp‏. (AECP) as "One to Watch" this week, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Alveron Energy Corp. is a development stage company that trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on November 18, 2003. They are a development stage wind and hydroelectric energy generation enterprise. Alveron Energy Corp‏. has their corporate headquarters in Toronto, Ontario.

From their beginning to September 2007, the Company was focused on providing a vehicle for a foreign or domestic non-public company to become an SEC reporting publicly traded company. However, the Company shifted their focus to becoming the aforementioned wind and hydroelectric energy generation company.

Earlier this year, the Company formed a new Joint Venture Corporation (JVC) as per the agreement signed on June 20, 2009. This JVC, “Yantai Alveron Energy Development Company”, is 77 percent owned by Alveron Energy with the remaining 23 percent owned by joint partners. Alveron Energy Corp. transferred $50,000 to this new entity during the quarter ending April 30, 2010. These funds are to be used on the feasibility report for a potential 48MW wind energy plant in Shandong, China.

Alveron Energy Corp‏. has begun preliminary investigation into wind and hydro energy technologies and has been researching wind and hydroelectric energy properties and project opportunities. The Company is also developing their economic models and financial forecasts while raising capital. They are working to identify regions that are economically viable for wind or hydro turbine development and development partners that would be appropriate for a particular project.

The Company is also engaging in data collection. For the wind energy projects, this involves location mapping and wind resource data monitoring and collection. This is through using meteorological instruments, especially anemometers, which read wind-speed and direction among other things. For hydroelectric projects, this involves location mapping and water resource data monitoring and collection. This is through using acoustical current instruments, as well as recorded and ongoing data collected by publicly accessible stations.

We're keeping an eye on Alveron Energy Corp‏. (AECP) and tracking them on our radar screens as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

One of the cornerstones of the Company's business strategy is collaborating with leading biopharmaceutical companies.

The Company's proprietary ADC technology empowers antibodies by stably linking them to cell-killing drug payloads. The drug payload is inactive until released from the antibody inside the targeted cancer cell. Consequently, this spares normal tissue the toxicity of traditional chemotherapy.

On July 20, 2010, Seattle Genetics, Inc. and Agensys, Inc. announced that they initiated a phase I clinical trial of ASG-5ME for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer. ASG-5ME is an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) that is being co-developed by both companies for the treatment of solid tumors. Agensys, Inc. is an affiliate of Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma Inc.

The single-agent, phase I, open-label, dose-escalation study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of ASG-5ME in patients with pancreatic cancer and identify the maximum tolerated dose. Secondary objectives include assessing the pharmacokinetics and antitumor activity of ASG-5ME. They also include identifying a recommended dose and regimen for future clinical trials. The design of the study is to enroll up to approximately 50 patients at multiple centers in the U.S.

Cellceutix Corp. (CTIX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight would like to spotlight Cellceutix Corp. (CTIX). Today, Cellceutix Corp. closed trading at $0.62, down 11.43%, on 2,340 volume with 6 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 3,241 with a 52-week low/high of $0.23/$1.01.

Cellceutix Corporation (CTIX) announced that they selected Destum Partners to assist in finding a development partner for their psoriasis compound, KM-133.

Cellceutix Corporation (CTIX) an emerging bio-pharmaceutical company, is in the early stages of receiving an influx of media attention and widespread notoriety within the pharmaceutical industry due to the promising results shown during the early development of a compound for the treatment of autism, KM-391, and the approaching Phase 1 clinical trials of Kevetrin™, the company's compound for the treatment of drug-resistant cancers. In addition to these two, Cellceutix currently manages a portfolio of six other promising compounds.

KM-391, a 100% novel compound, is revolutionary in that it addresses the core issues of autism, unlike the pharmaceuticals presently on the market which merely treat the symptoms that result from autism. Preliminary testing of KM-391 revealed that test animals showed a significant increase in serotonin uptake compared to controls with noticeable and measurable positive therapeutic changes. Cellceutix is rapidly developing KM-391 in response to the public outcries received by the company since the results of early testing had been made publicly available.

Kevetrin, Cellceutix's flagship product, is nearing Phase 1 clinical trials on humans with FDA regulated pre-clinical testing completed and the data being properly compiled for the IND application. While most cancer treatments today are derivatives of other compounds, Kevetrin is completely unique. Multidrug resistance, the principal mechanism by which strains of cancer develop resistance to chemotherapy drugs, is a major factor in the failure of many forms of chemotherapy today and represents a huge need for novel cancer treatments.

Kevetrin has been extensively studied in animal models of lung, breast, and colon cancers, targeting carcinoma strains that have proven resistant to standard therapies available on the market today with the results showing greater tumor growth delay than present therapies and strong efficacy in mouse models with increasing dosages. A successful drug for the treatment of drug-resistant cancers is purported to generate billions of dollars in annual revenues.

The Company has procured leading figures in the health and science arenas to lead its development efforts. The officers and advisors of Cellceutix include pioneers in the fields of cancer and genetics, as well as those who have been integral to mergers, acquisitions and the generation of exorbitant revenues through ground breaking therapies while holding high-level executive and research positions at industry giants such as Pfizer and Eli Lilly. Holding over a century of highly relevant experience in the pharmaceuticals industry, the team has been assembled with the specific goal of duplicating these past successes while revolutionizing much needed treatments for today's most challenging diseases.

Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. (MMTC) Ramping Up

Micro Identification Technologies Inc., developer of the revolutionary MIT 1000 patented microbial ID system, is targeting a rapidly growing market resulting from increased demands in the areas of food safety, general health, and homeland security. The company has already produced the system for a number of high-end organizations, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Japanese Ministry of Food Safety, and even a university in Malaysia, and recently announced the initiation of an internal expansion program. The expansion is made possible by a manufacturing contract with OSI Optoelectronics to produce the systems, and an equity placement agreement from the private equity firm of Dutchess Capital.

The MIT 1000 represents a new paradigm in the critical detection of pathological microbes that kill countless people worldwide every year. The system intelligently leverages advanced software to read the patterns generated by reflected laser light illuminating the bacteria, and can quickly identify various pathogens without the need of expensive laboratory intervention.

MIT’s Chairman, Michael Brennan, spoke of the progress made. “The MIT 1000 is patented, independently tested and is a certified test method for food safety. More importantly, it can annually save thousands of lives and tens of millions in healthcare costs by the rapid identification of pathogenic bacteria and other microbes. We are on track with this year’s goal to begin quantity deliveries in 4Q 2010, but need to increase our system support and microbiological research capabilities in conjunction with supporting the food industry’s obvious safety requirements.”

Emergence of the new technology has occurred at a time when concerns about food safety have significantly increased, and with the government approving the first major changes to food safety laws in 70 years. The Washington Post reported, “These actions follow a wave of food-borne illnesses over the past three years, involving products as varied as spinach, peanuts, cookie dough and meat, which has shaken consumer confidence and made the issue a priority for congressional leaders and the White House. Food illnesses sicken one in four Americans and kill 5,000 each year, according to government statistics. Tainted food has cost the food industry billions of dollars in recalls, lost sales and legal expenses. Under the legislation, the FDA will get new enforcement powers and be able to impose beefed-up civil and criminal penalties. One provision allows the FDA to declare food ‘adulterated’ simply if the grower or manufacturer has failed to follow safety standards, regardless of whether the food is actually tainted.”

Cellceutix Corporation announced this morning that they have contracted acclaimed consulting firm, Destum Partners, to aggressively seek a partner to develop their compound, KM-133, for the treatment of psoriasis. Destum has a distinguished history of establishing partnerships in the biotechnology industry to meet the developmental needs for promising compounds.

Cellceutix has been receiving notoriety recently with a series of press releases regarding Kevetrin, their compound in development for multi-drug resistant cancers, and KM-391, their compound for the treatment of the core issues of autism. Kevetrin is approaching Phase I human trials and has displayed extremely promising results in pre-clinical studies. As a result, major pharma and financial institutions have recently contacted Cellceutix to learn more about the Company and the promising cancer compound that it possesses. In the area of autism research, Cellceutix stands amongst the top of industry leaders, big and small, as they have already conducted several pre-clinical studies on KM-391 with very promising data being compiled.

Interestingly, and also akin to the overall Cellceutix business philosophy, Cellceutix has maintained a very “low-key” approach to the development of their compound for psoriasis. While many small biotechs would be publishing news regularly on a compound of this nature and potential, the Cellceutix management team has been carefully deliberating over the most effective way to continue the development of KM-133 to support shareholder value and financial responsibility of the Cellceutix budget.

In a conversation with Leo Ehrlich, Chief Financial Officer of Cellceutix, we questioned what other options were available for the development of KM-133. Mr. Ehrlich explained that not only could Cellceutix develop the compound on their own, but that they had recently been contacted by officials from the Vietnamese government. The Vietnamese see extremely promising potential in KM-133 and as they wish to establish themselves as a world-leader in the area of medical tourism, they see value in the development of KM-133 in their country as a possible opportunity to launch this initiative. The Cellceutix management spent many hours in discussions about all avenues and decided that partnering for the development was the best course of action for its shareholders.

In a video that can be viewed on the Cellceutix website at www.cellceutix.com, CEO George Evans states that, “it is really an embarrassment of riches” as the Company knows the potential of KM-133, yet is focused heavily on the development of Kevetrin and KM-391. In the press release this morning, Mr. Evans explains, “This decision is ultimately a consequence of the strength of our pipeline.” He continued, “With our primary focus on the impending IND filing for Kevetrin™ and our work on KM-391 for autism, our board determined that this approach is the best way to increase value for our shareholders. We selected Destum because of their deep experience in the dermatology space and their excellent recent track record in concluding development deals.”

The data from results of testing already completed for KM-133 has been extremely promising. In a human xenograft animal model of psoriasis, KM-133 reduced psoriasis significantly more than controls. Psoriasis did not recur with KM-133 during the entire 180 day course of the experiment, whereas psoriasis reoccurred in the groups treated with methotrexate, a drug commonly used for the treatment of severe psoriasis, after an average of 61 days. The effectiveness demonstrated by KM-133 in these studies, if confirmed in human trials, would position the compound in a very large market.

According to a report published by Research and Markets, the psoriasis market for the seven major markets in 2008 was $2.5 billion and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.4% through 2018. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as many as 7.5 million Americans (125 million worldwide) have psoriasis making it one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases in the U.S. affecting all ages of both sexes.

In addition, KM-133 may be eligible for an abridged FDA approval process that would allow the compound to go directly into human trials. The rule, 505(b)(2), permits compounds with an active ingredient that has previously been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to forego pre-clinical testing. Knowing that this rule has saved companies millions of dollars and significant time, Cellceutix believes that this fact, coupled with the promising data already compiled, will make KM-133 very appealing for development with a partnering company.

Gareth Lugg, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Destum Partners commented, “We are very pleased that Cellceutix selected us for this project. Although Cellceutix is a small company, the strength of their compounds in development is extraordinary.” Mr. Lugg continued, “Our extensive experience in the dermatological industry has us very bullish on the partnership potential for this compound.”

Destum Partners has extensive advisory experience both in the dermatology and autoimmune therapeutic areas. They have worked with companies such as Collagenex and Pfizer specifically focused on dermatology. Most recently, Destum Partners completed a partnering agreement on behalf of Diamyd Medical AB with OMJPI a division of Johnson and Johnson for the treatment and prevention of Type I Diabetes — an autoimmune disease. Diamyd received an upfront payment of US $45 million, and has the potential to receive US $580 million in milestone payments.

Once again, this “under the radar” company has brought significant news to the table about another one of the eight compounds in their portfolio. More information about Cellceutix, their compounds and the investment opportunity that they possess can be found on their corporate website at www.cellceutix.com.

NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NTWK) Inks Contract to Implement NFS CAP Solution with a Major U.S. Auto Manufacturer in China

NetSol Technologies, Inc., a worldwide provider of global IT and enterprise application solutions, announced this morning that it was awarded a major software and IT services contract valued more than $1 million with a major U.S. automotive manufacturer’s captive finance arm in China. According to the press release, NetSol will provide its Credit Application Processing solution to fully automate point of sale (POS) functions in the client’s Chinese dealer network as well as install its next-generation platform to capture all credit and client data at the point of sale to streamline and automate the entire credit application capture process.

Naeem Ghauri, President and Head of Global Sales at NetSol, stated, “This is a major win for NetSol’s China operations. Our state-of-the-art auto leasing platform has become the de facto gold standard in the Chinese IT market. This new win clearly establishes NFS as a market leader with over 90% IT market share in China’s captive auto finance sector. We expect to sign a number of new deals in the foreseeable future, as our pipeline remains strong and growing.”

China overtook the U.S. last year to become the world’s largest auto market, with more than 13 million vehicles sold during the year. Research firm J.D. Power and Associates has estimated that sales of passenger vehicles (a category that includes passenger cars, SUVs and minivans) in China will increase from 8.7 million vehicles in 2009 to 13.5 million vehicles by 2015, a 55.2% increase.

Credit Application Processing (CAP), a component of the NetSol Financial Suite (NFSTM) of products, is a web-based credit evaluation system that provides finance and leasing companies with the ability to quickly assess the merit and risk level of an applicant applying for a loan or a lease. Although the system is designed to seamlessly integrate with NetSol’s POS module, it can also be customized to link to any third-party point of sale system.
