Innovation Pharmaceuticals Submits Material Transfer Agreement to Study Lead Defensin Mimetic Brilacidin for Coronavirus (COVID-19)
WAKEFIELD, Mass., Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovation Pharmaceuticals (OTCQB:IPIX) (âthe Companyâ), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, announced today the CompanyÂ submitted a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) with a leading U.S.-based virology laboratory to research its lead defensin mimetic drug candidate, Brilacidin as a potential novel coronavirus treatment. Brilacidin has demonstrated broad and robust antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties in multiple FDA clinical trials in different indications.
Under terms of the agreement, Brilacidinâs potential inhibition of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is planned to be assessed.
Discussions also are underway with a government-funded virology laboratory in Asia, to assess Brilacidin across a range of RNA viruses. On a related note, the Company has submitted a preliminary summary of Brilacidinâs potential as a novel coronavirus treatment to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which is dedicated to rapidly identifying and funding medical countermeasures to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As previously released, and as supported in the academic literature, defensin-based therapeutics represent an attractive potential intervention to combat coronavirus infections given their innate multifaceted immunomodulatory properties. Brilacidin, and other defensin mimetics similar in structure, have been tested against numerous clinical isolates of both gram-positive and gram-negative infectious pathogens, with strong activity exhibited across multiple isolates. Enveloped viruses have also been tested, with moderate activity noted.
The Review Article on coronaviruses linked to below suggests immunomodulators, like Brilacidin, might be promising therapeutic options, acting synergistically when combined with other antivirals.
- Zumia, A., et al. âCoronaviruses - Drug Discovery and Therapeutic Options.â Nat Rev Drug Discov. 2016 May;15(5):327-47. doi: 10.1038/nrd.2015.37. Epub 2016 Feb 12.Â https://www.nature.com/articles/nrd.2015.37
The underlying theory is that once the viral load is reduced, the bodyâs natural immune responseâpossibly strengthened by Brilacidin administered post-infection as an adjuvant therapyâshould be better able to fight off coronavirus complications. Defensin-based vaccines also have been proposed. Brilacidin, shown in pre-clinical tests to inhibit PDE4/PDE3, might provide added benefit as a result of this particular mechanism by: 1) disrupting viral replication; and 2) enhancing the protective role of natural surfactants in the lung, helping resolve respiratory problems common to the coronavirus.
Should laboratory tests support Brilacidinâs antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), and potentially other RNA viruses, the Company will look to expedite research and clinical development of Brilacidin as a potential antiviral therapy via pharmaceutical partnerships, academic collaborations and government grants.
The current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to pose a significant life-threatening risk in China and throughout the rest of the world. Currently, over 79,000 cases have been diagnosed across 29 countries, including the U.S., resulting in nearly 2,600 reported deaths. There are growing signs the global economy is being severely impacted due to this emerging potential pandemic.
If the MTA is concluded, as the Company expects, the drug will be put into queue for testing. There is no assurance made or implied that testing of Brilacidin for any coronavirus will be conducted or successful. The Company will keep shareholders apprised of news related to evaluating Brilacidinâs antiviral properties for potentially treating COVID-19, and other viruses, in addition to its core Brilacidin programs, in Ulcerative Colitis and Oral Mucositis.

Nymox Announces New Peer Review Publication of Prostate Cancer Fexapotide Clinical Trial Results in World Journal of Urology
HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NASDAQ: NYMX) is pleased to announce that a new peer review report was published today in the World Journal of Urology, documenting the successful long-term clinical trial results after Fexapotide Triflutate treatment for early stage prostate cancer.
This report represents the first publication in the medical literature of multi-year long-term data from a well-powered prospective randomized multi-center clinical trial for a prostate injectable treatment in men targeted to low grade early prostate cancer and showing statistically significant efficacy for a locally targeted molecular injectable treatment.
The new publication is entitled "Prospective Evaluation of Fexapotide Triflutate Injection âTreatment of Grade Group 1 Prostate Cancer: Four Year Resultsâ. The authors are Neal Shore, Myrtle Beach, SC; Steven A. Kaplan, New York, NY; Ronald Tutrone, Baltimore, MD; Richard Levin, Towson, MD; James Bailen, Louisville, KY; Alan Hay, Salem, OR; Susan Kalota, Tucson, AZ; Mohamed Bidair, San Diego, CA; Sheldon Freedman, Las Vegas, NV; Kenneth Goldberg, Lewisville, TX; Frederick Snoy, Albuquerque, NM; Jonathan I. Epstein, Baltimore, MD. The article is available online at https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00345-020-03127-w.Â Â Â Â
The Fexapotide (FT) study was started in 2012 and enrolled 147 men with localized Gleason Grade 6 T1c prostate cancer at 28 U.S. clinical investigation sites. Patients were followedÂ with clinical and laboratoryÂ evaluations and regular periodic prostate biopsies for up to 5 years. Patients randomized to FT were treated with a single one-time targeted injection of FT, either 2.5mg or 15mg. Statistical comparisons were made over time of the proportions of subjects and untreated controls who progressed to higher Gleason grade and/or invasive treatments instituted with prostatectomy, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy. Important clinical highlights from the study include: FT treatment reduced cancer progression (-67.7%) compared to controls (3 years, FT 15mg, p<.02, pooled FT p=.0265) and also reduced (-54.7%) the incidence of surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy (4 years, FT 15mg p<.02; pooled FT p=.0374). At 4 years the incidence of surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy with increased Gleason grade was significantly reduced (FT 15mg -73.3% p=.0059, pooled FT p=.0064). Results for the high dose (FT 15mg) were superior to the lower dose (FT 2.5mg). Safety data showed no serious adverse events related to FT during the study.
The current recommended standard of care for these patients is active surveillance: patients are monitored carefully over time to determine if and when the cancer becomes more advanced and thus will require more aggressive treatment, like radiation therapy or surgery.
Dr. Neal Shore, lead author of the report, said âThe study results demonstrate dataÂ in a large multi-center clinical trial of men treated with transrectal ultrasound guided FT for early stage, low risk prostate cancers, which suggest an effective result for reducing histopathologic progression, as evidenced by repeated biopsies over time,Â while also demonstrating a favorable safety profile. This study presents long-term FT data which supports its efficacy for avoidance of biologic progression in an active surveillance prostate cancer population.Â A therapy to optimizeÂ the success of an active surveillance strategy is a welcomed advance for these patients."
Dr Steven Kaplan, Professor of Urology and Director of the Benign Urologic Diseases and The Men's Health Program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, and a co-author of the report said, "This study reports the long-term data from a prospective study of an injectable for localized Grade Group 1 prostate cancer -- which is the first time this has been accomplished for a very common problem in men. Regulatory approval of Fexapotide Triflutate (FT) will be a very important treatment adjunct for countless men with this problem.â
The FT treatments were administered in a urology office setting without anesthesia or sedation, consisting of a single relatively painless transrectal injection into the area of the prostate cancer. The percentageÂ of patients with surgery or radiotherapy with Gleason grade progression was reduced by 73.3% in patients treated with a single injection of FT 15mg and by 62.6% in pooled (high and low dose FT groups combined) FT patients compared to controls.
Dr. Jonathan Epstein a co-author and researcher involved in the study, stated "Although more and more men are electing active surveillance for low grade prostate cancer, approximately 25-35% will show increased grade on follow-up biopsy which typically leads to definitive therapy. In this study, Fexapotide Triflutate decreased the risk of upgrading on follow-up biopsy enabling men to stay on active surveillance. Even if Fexapotide Triflutate enables men to stay on active surveillance longer before they eventually experience upgrading, there would be a significant benefit for men to delay the onset of side effects associated with therapy and in the interim enjoy a better quality of life. Future studies are needed to expand the criteria for study of Fexapotide Triflutate to include men with large volume Grade Group 1 disease and possibly men with low volume, low percent pattern 4 Grade Group 2 cancer. Identifying the ideal candidates for Fexapotide Triflutate also factoring in multiparametric MRI findings remains to be determined."
FT is a pro-apoptotic proprietary drug which promotes natural programmed cell death (apoptosis) in prostatic glandular cells which compose the prostate cancer. FT has been safely administered to men in clinical trials in the U.S. involving over 1700 patients and controls treated for BPH or prostate cancer. FT has completed Phase 3 studies for BPH and further studies of FT for prostate cancer are planned in the near future.

Tamino Minerals, Inc. has a Geologic Report on its Property soon to be NI 43-101 Report and Prepares for Authorized Shares Reduction
MONTREAL, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tamino Minerals, Inc.Â ("Tamino" or the "Company") (OTC Markets: TINO),Â as mentioned before the Company has prepared a Geologic Report on its El Volcan Property.
Some of our most important investors have been requesting information on this specific which we intend to address professionally. It is very important to mention that to convince a Professional Geologist to write a NI 43-101 Report the company must have a Property of Merit. A synonym of a Property of Merit is an Exploration Target. Having an exploration basically means that the company has a recommendation by a talented geologist certified to make such recommendations and predicting a successful outcome.
Colloquially speaking that means that the property has a certain amount of reconnaissance work that would certify that economic amounts of Gold, Silver, Copper, Zinc or Lead could be found. Other minerals of value could be found in mining exploration projects, but on this one we believe that this is the way to start. This is the first step far from finalizing a Bankable Feasibility Study but a great beginning for a company like ours. We invite you to participate and invest in order to develop this asset.
The company is currently working on the logistical aspects required to implement the Geologic Report. The Company will be ready to present its NI 43-101 Report soon as we proceed to prepare all necessary logistical aspects.
We are also working on other acquisitions. During the last several years the company has spotted several interesting opportunities located in various places within Mexico and other countries.
So far, the Company hasnât diluted a single share. The company currently has 149,811,161 common shares outstanding in the Float.
The Company is projecting that it will lower the Authorized Shares from 1 Billion Common Shares to 650 Million Common Shares.
The company will make further announcements on its other projects as progress is made.

MariMed Harvests its First Cannabis Crop in Massachusetts Amidst State-Wide Flower Shortage
NORWOOD, Mass., Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc. (MRMD:OTCQX) (the âCompanyâ or MariMed), a leading multi-state cannabis and hemp operator focused on health and wellness, announced today that the Company began its first cannabis harvest of 2020 at its cultivation and production facility in New Bedford, MA. This state-of-the-art cultivation and production facilityâs initial flower production is estimated to ramp up to approximately 1,000 pounds per month, including a variety of high grade cannabis from top genetic strains. MariMed operates in Massachusetts through its wholly owned, licensed subsidiary, ARL Healthcare, Inc.
In the midst of a state-wide flower shortage, MariMed received approval to start cultivation operations in November 2019. The ARL Healthcare facility contains 17 flower rooms with approximately 32,000 square feet of canopy. The Company plans to package a majority of the product for its premium flower brand, Nature's Heritage, which will be available for both the wholesale market and retail purchase at Panacea Wellness Dispensary in Middleboro, MA. The remaining product will be extracted for both edibles and raw concentrates.
âThe result of our first harvest in Massachusetts, arguably one of the fastest growing legal cannabis markets in the country, is extremely promising,â said Bob Fireman, CEO of MariMed. âMassachusetts is a key market for cannabis and with a flower shortage throughout the state, we believe operating a robust cultivation facility is crucial in ensuring that patients and consumers have access to safe, licensed cannabis rather than having to go to the black market for their wellness needs.â
Tim Shaw, MariMedâs COO, who led the Massachusetts licensing process and manages Massachusetts operations for the Company, said, âThis harvest speaks to our continued success in efficiently executing on our strategic priorities. Our goal is to continue to expand our Massachusetts cultivation capacity and retail dispensary network as the legal market continues to grow.â
âDuring this statewide flower shortage, weâre proud to provide a masterfully crafted cannabis product grown through our ultramodern horticultural processes. Natureâs Heritage is a storied brand that boasts an integrity that Massachusetts hasnât yet experienced on the legal market. The state is in for a treat,â added Jo McCarran, MariMed SVP Branding.
Massachusetts has a robust adult use market as well as a Medical Cannabis Program in which over 60,000 patients are currently enrolled. Market analysts at the Brightfield Group project the recreational cannabis market in Massachusetts will exceed $2 billion annually by 2023, with medical use growing to $125 million in the same period.

ClearOne Seeks Order Holding Shure in Contempt for Marketing and Selling the MXA910W-A in Violation of 2019 Preliminary Injunction
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Â ClearOneÂ (NASDAQ: CLRO), a leading global provider of audio and visual communication solutions, on February 21, 2020, askedÂ for a Court order that Shure has been manufacturing, marketing, and selling its redesigned MXA910, the MXA910W-A released inÂ December 2019, in violation of a preliminary injunction issued by Judge Edmond E. Chang of the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois.Â That court-ordered injunction prohibits Shure from âmanufacturing, marketing, and sellingâ the MXA910 for use âin its drop-ceiling mounting configuration, including marketing and selling the MXA910 in a way that encourages or allows integrators to install it in a drop-ceiling mounting configuration.âÂ By law, the injunction applies to the MXA910 and âcolorable imitationsâ thereof.
ClearOneâs filing asserts that Shure has been willfully manufacturing, marketing, and selling its MXA910W-A in a way that âencourages or allows integrators to install it in a drop-ceiling mounting configuration.âÂ The measurements of the MXA910W-A allow it to be installed securely in the prohibited configuration in the majority of U.S. drop-ceiling grids, and Shureâs marketing materials encourage such installation.Â Â In addition, ClearOne has found evidence that third parties are in fact installing the MXA910W-A in the prohibited configuration.Â ClearOne has asked the Court to order Shure to cease marketing and selling the MXA910W-A in the United States, notify all customers that the MXA910W-A violates the preliminary injunction and is thus subject to recall, award ClearOne its attorneysâ fees associated with the contempt motion, and for additional discovery relating to how Shureâs customers are installing the MXA910W-A.
âShure chose to play fast and loose with the Courtâs preliminary injunction order, rushing to market with a design that, we believe, still infringes ClearOneâs patent,â said Zee Hakimoglu, ClearOne Chair and CEO.Â âShure appears to have fully appreciated the risks they were taking, yet they willingly crossed the line, making things more difficult for all involved.â Ms. Hakimoglu reiterated that âClearOne remains committed to protecting its intellectual property rights while playing by the rules, and wonât be intimidated by Shure into foregoing ClearOneâs right to fair competition on a level playing field.â Â
The case number in theÂ U.S. District Court of the Northern District of IllinoisÂ is 17-cv-3078.
ClearOneÂ is a global company that designs, develops, and sells conferencing, collaboration, and network streaming solutions for voice and visual communications. The performance and simplicity of its advanced, comprehensive solutions offer unprecedented levels of functionality, reliability and scalability. VisitÂ ClearOneÂ atÂ www.clearone.com.

"Oryzon continued to make strong clinical progress in the fourth quarter,â said Dr. Carlos Buesa, Oryzonâs Chief Executive Officer. âWe are encouraged by the promising efficacy seen in both our iadademstat oncology program and vafidemstat neurology program and importantly, these exciting signals of clinical activity were achieved with good safety and tolerability profiles. We look forward to a number of important milestones in 2020, including data readouts for our REIMAGING-AD and ETHERAL trials and the initiation of the Phase IIb PORTICO study evaluating vafidemstat in borderline personality disorder and also additional data on the ongoing cancer trials.Â We are confident that our two lead candidates are exciting potential treatment options in areas of high unmet medical need and look forward to continued clinical progress.â
Fourth Quarter and Recent Highlights
Iadademstat in oncology:
- New positive efficacy data from Phase II trial ALICE, investigating iadademstat in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) at the 61st ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando, United States.
- Reported objective responses in 6 out of 8 evaluable patients (75% OR): of these, there were 2 complete remissions (CR), 3 complete remissions with incomplete hematologic recovery (CRi) and 1 partial remission (PR).
- The mean follow-up time amongst the evaluable patients was 20 weeks, with a mean Time to Response (TTR) of only 32 days in those patients who responded.
- Two of the 5 patients (40%) that had received more than 3 cycles of treatment had also become transfusion independent.
- Encouraging preliminary efficacy data from the first 8 patients in the CLEPSIDRA Phase II trial evaluating the safety and clinical efficacy of iadademstat in combination with platinum/etoposide in second-line small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients at the ESMO conference in Barcelona.
- Reported responses in 6 out of 8 patients (75% response rate), with 4 partial remissions and 2 long-term disease stabilizations in patients treated with iadademstat plus carboplatin/etoposide.
- Demonstrated durable treatment response with one partial remission patient at cycle 13 and still in response. This patient showed an initial 78.7% tumor reduction as determined by RECIST after 6 cycles of iadademstat plus carboplatin/etoposide. Tumor reduction continued upon iadademstat monotherapy after the combo cycles, with 86.3% of tumor reduction by RECIST at the end of cycle 12.
- The clinical trial continues to recruit patients and investigate dosing regimens to minimize hematological toxicity of the combination.
Vafidemstat in neurological disease:
- Additional positive Phase IIa REIMAGINE efficacy data of vafidemstat in the treatment of aggression in three psychiatric diseases at the 2019 International College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CINP) meeting in Athens, Greece.
- Reported data from ADHD, BDP and ASD and aggregated cohorts demonstrating statistically significant improvements in several scales measuring aggression such as the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) of Severity (CGI-S) and Improvement (CGI-I) scales and the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) 4-item Agitation/Aggression subscale.
- Benefits also observed on several scales more generally assessing the global condition of the patients, such as the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) total score, the global BPD checklist (BPDCL) scale (for BPD patients) and the ADHD Rating Scale (ADHD-RS) (for ADHD patients).
- On the strength of these data, the company is currently preparing a Phase IIb trial in BPD (PORTICO trial), expected to start in 1H2020, and is evaluating additional Phase IIb studies in ADHD and/or ASD.
- The company has completed the recruitment in REIMAGINE-AD, a Phase IIa trial evaluating the effect of vafidemstat to treat aggressiveness in moderate and severe Alzheimer's disease (AD) with a total of 12 patients. The company plans to report the results of this study at the AAT-AD/PD conference in April 2020 in Vienna, Austria.
- The company has completed recruitment of the Phase IIa ETHERAL trial in Europe, with 117 patients randomized, while it continues in the parallel US arm (ETHERAL-US). ETHERAL is a randomized, double-blind, 3-arm, parallel-group study with a 24-week placebo-controlled period followed by a 24-week extension in which placebo patients are randomized to vafidemstat therapy, to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of vafidemstat in patients with mild to moderate AD. Positive safety data from the first 104 patients in ETHERAL were presented at the 2019 Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC-2019) in Los Angeles and the company plans to present initial interim 6-month treatment data from the EU trial also at the AAT-AD/PD conference in April 2020.
- The company announced that the extension phase of the SATEEN Phase IIa clinical trial evaluating vafidemstat in multiple sclerosis has been extended in patients with the secondary progressive form of the disease up to a maximum of 18 months of vafidemstat treatment. This extension will allow the assessment of the effect of vafidemstat as a therapeutic treatment for the progressive form of the disease which requires longer clinical observation periods.
