United States Patent and Trademark Office Declares Interference Involving Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' Patent

A patent interference is a proceeding conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in instances where two or more parties claim patent rights to the same technology. The U.S. patent system awards patents to the first party who invented a particular technology. In an interference, the primary purpose of the USPTO is to determine which party invented the technology first, and to award the patent to that party.

On March 15, 2010, Advanced Voice Recognition Systems announced the declaration of interference by the USPTO. The USPTO declared the interference between Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' application serial number 09/351,542 as Senior Party and U.S. Patent #5,799,273 ("the Mitchell Patent") owned by Allvoice Developments, LTD ("Allvoice") as Junior Party. AVOI's patent was filed on November 13, 1995 approximately 10 months before the Mitchell filing. Advanced Voice Recognition Systems chose Oblon Spivak of Alexandria Virginia to represent the company in the interference proceedings. After nine months and thousands of hours of collaborative efforts of the team at Oblon Spivak, in conjunction with the inventors, expert witness and Advanced Voice Recognition Systems management, the final round of filings were submitted on December 2, 2010.

The Mitchell patent is the subject of a lawsuit that Allvoice filed against Microsoft in August 2009 in the East District Court of Texas in which Allvoice alleged infringement of Allvoices' Mitchell patent. Microsoft filed invalidity contentions based in part on Advanced Voice Recognition Systems' patent and its product Digital Dictate.

Advanced Voice Recognition Systems is actively pursuing license agreements or other strategic relationships with ASR market participants. The company will also continue to vigorously support and defend its patents through appropriate infringement and interference proceedings to protect the interest of shareholders and future licensees.

True 2 Beauty (TRTB) is a leading manufacturer and distributor of sexual potency pills and liquid products in the United States, with expansion efforts underway in other parts of the world. The company's line of current products currently include Libigrow (for men), Libigirl (for women), Libiliquid Shots and Libiliquid Relaxation Drinks. Made from only natural ingredients, the products are regarded as the most powerful over the counter herbal sexual and performance supplements available on the market.

In addition to being sold online, Libigrow products are sold throughout the U.S. in convenience stores, liquor stores, smoke shops, vitamin stores, independent grocers, and adult boutique stores, with potential in larger chains such as CVS, Walgreens and GNC to name a few. In fact, a major retail pharmacy chain has begun a regional trial in eight of their stores in southern Florida in preparation for a nationwide roll-out to begin in early 2011 for select Libigrow products – the first step to national expansion within the retail pharmacy chain network.

The company has recruited a trained and highly qualified full-time staff. In addition to their talented and well-seasoned designers, the company employs a team of photographers, web designers, a marketing and advertising director and assistant director, account managers in sales, in-house customer service representatives, a commercial ads designer and editor, and an in-house printing team for all promotional material.

Alex Hbaiu leads the company as CEO, president and director. He published several research articles and findings during his employment at Eli Lily Research Labs where he had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and educated doctors and scientists in the world. Although founded with very little capital, via Mr. Hbaiu's expert leadership Librigrow has grown to over $10,000,000 in sales via "word of mouth" advertising alone. Disclaimer

Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. (SMEV) SpaCapsule to be Featured in Hammacher-Schlemmer and FrontGate Publications

Simulated Environment Concepts, the manufacturer and developer of medical, aesthetic and wellness equipment, today announced that its flagship SpaCapsule has been included in the prestigious Hammacher-Schlemmer and FrontGate publications as increased interest continues to emerge during the holiday season.

“We are very excited to have SpaCapsule included in such prestigious publications at a time when the holiday season is approaching and personal interest in the machine is on a rise,” stated Dr. Ilya Spivak, Marketing Director of Simulated Environment Concepts (SE Concepts) and Co-Inventor of the SpaCapsule. “We have seen a steady increase in orders over the past several weeks following our Equip’Hôtel presentation and the incredible results offered by the Dermscan study regarding the weight loss and anti-cellulite benefits of SpaCapsule.”

Hammacher-Schlemmer has been an industry leader for more than a century, adding only the finest products to their selective gallery. “We were not at all surprised when the folks at Hammacher contacted us asking for permission to sell our product,” continued Dr. Spivak. “Although we’ve been distributing SpaCapsule primarily to medical offices, gyms, and spas, there is also a large personal marketplace for those affluent individuals seeking luxury at its finest.”

According to the press release, SE Concepts is very excited to start the New Year. With plans for increased transparency, franchise opportunities and new distribution agreements – complementing current international agreements valued at an estimated $15 Million – as well as completing 2011 pre-orders for Denmark and French distributors, management believes the first half of next year will be flourishing.

Dr. Spivak concluded, “We’ve reached a very exciting time in the company’s 10 year history as SpaCapsule continues to gain global brand recognition. We intend to work tirelessly to continue supporting the company’s growth and brand’s global acceptance and shareholder value throughout the world.”

Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (SNSS) Launches Phase 3 VALOR Trial for Vosaroxin Drug

Today, Simulated Environment released updates on its pivotal Phase 3 VALOR trial of vosaroxin, the company’s lead drug candidate in the study of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Sunesis announced that the first patient has been randomized and dosed with blinded study treatment.

The VALOR trial is a multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pivotal trial which is expected to enroll 450 evaluable patients at leading sites in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Patients in the VALOR trial will be randomized in blinded manner to receive either vosaroxin or placebo on days one and four of each treatment cycle. It will be taken in combination with cytarabine for five days of each treatment cycle. The trial’s primary endpoint is overall survival

Daniel Swisher, Chief Executive Officer of Sunesis, commented, “The initiation of VALOR marks the culmination of many years of work and is a gratifying moment for Sunesis in its ongoing efforts to develop a new therapeutic option for AML patients. AML is a challenging disease, especially for relapsed and refractory patients, yet in our robust Phase 2 program we have shown in this AML setting that vosaroxin plus a leading standard of care, cytarabine, exhibit a combination of efficacy and tolerability that has led to promising results. The support of key opinion leaders, top international trial sites, specialized service providers and a rigorously designed Phase 3 protocol should provide the VALOR trial with a strong foundation for operational success.”

“Patients with relapsed or refractory AML have a poor prognosis and are often intolerant of or do not respond to currently available treatment options,” said Farhad Ravandi, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Leukemia, Division of Cancer Medicine, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and a principal investigator of VALOR. “Despite the unmet medical need, treatment standards have not appreciably changed in more than 30 years. Vosaroxin’s differentiated treatment profile from the Phase 2 program is characterized by strong remission rates, low all-cause early mortality and long leukemia free survival, which have led to survival outcomes that compare favorably with published results for current treatment standards. The VALOR trial is a well designed, highly anticipated trial which should provide a clear understanding of vosaroxin’s efficacy and safety profile when added to cytarabine in this disease setting.”

The VALOR trial employs an adaptive design that provides for a single interim analysis by an independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) which will meet to examine pre-specified efficacy and safety data sets and decide whether to implement a one-time sample size adjustment of 225 additional evaluable patients to maintain adequate power across a broad range of clinically meaningful and statistically significant survival outcomes. The interim analysis by the DSMB is expected to take place in mid-2012.

Genmed Holding Corp. (GENM) to Enter the European Generic Pharma Market

Genmed Holding Corp. is focused on the delivery of low cost generic pharmaceutical drugs directly to distribution channels throughout the world. The company began its generic business in 2008 and currently operates through its 100%-owned Dutch subsidiary, Genmed B.V.

The company announced today its entry into the European generic drug market with the receipt of its first marketing and distribution license for paracetamol. Also known as acetaminophen, paracetamol is an over-the-counter drug used to treat mild to moderate pain from headaches, backaches, osteoarthritis and to reduce fever.

Genmed first filed its application paperwork for paracetamol 500 milligram tablets with the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board in July 2008. This Board is a member of the European Medicines Agency which evaluates and monitors the efficiency, risks, and quality of human medicinal products. The submission was done under mutual recognition from these other European countries: Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The successful receipt of its license allows the company to market and distribute its generic drugs within the aforementioned countries. Genmed recently received its official marketing authorization license and has been preparing for its first shipments of paracetamol. These shipments are expected to take place within the first quarter of 2011.
