Hemostemix CEO on autologous stem cell therapy and how it works with circulatory issues

In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Peter Clausi speaks with Thomas Smeenk, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Hemostemix Inc. (TSXV: HEM | OTC: HMTXD), about Hemostemix’s technology that uses patients own blood to treat ischemia in the circulatory system of the body.

In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Thomas said, “We take blood from patient’s arm. We fractionate out their stem cell from that blood.” He continued, “Then we culture them and change them from a raw stem cell into an angiogenic cell precursor that is programed to address ischemia in the circulatory system of the body. It is common in diabetics, in individuals who suffer from heart disease such as angina or ischemic cardiomyopathy, in wound care.”

Thomas stated that Hemostemix has treated more than 500 patients using the technology which is now in clinical trials. He added, “The second one we patented is NCP (Neural Cellular Precursor). This is a cell that can be used to treat stroke, diseases that have nerve damage.”

Valeo Pharma on a significant upswing with recent Health Canada approvals

In a new InvestorIntel interview Peter Clausi speaks with Steve Saviuk, CEO of Valeo Pharma Inc. (CSE: VPH | OTCQB: VPHIF), about receiving Health Canada’s approval for its anti-coagulant Redesca™ and the use of some its products in battling coronavirus.

“We are in the middle of a significant upswing and growth trajectory,” Steve told Peter, with Valeo’s stock up over 300% in 12 months. Founded in 2003, Valeo Pharma is a pharmaceutical company dedicated to the commercialization of innovative prescription products in Canada with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases, oncology and hospital specialty products.

Steve discusses Health Canada’s recent approval of Redesca™ and Redesca Hp™ low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) biosimilars, which belong to a class of anti-coagulant drugs very much in demand and are now increasingly used as a first line of defense tool in the fight against the symptoms of COVID-19. Steve added that the Canadian LMWH market is in excess of $200 million annually and the Valeo anticipates being able to capture a significant market share with its growing portfolio of hospital drug products.

As to future growth and valuation, Steve quoted Wayne Gretzky: “It’s not where the puck is, it’s where the puck is going, and it’s the same thing with valuation. You have to look at where we’re going to be in a year or two, and that’s what is truly exciting.”

Sixth Wave’s Dr. Jon Gluckman talks about the election and the 2nd wave of cannabis investment

In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Tracy Weslosky speaks with Dr. Jon Gluckman, President, CEO and Founder of Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW | OTCQB: ATURF) about what a Biden presidential win means for an energized and revitalized cannabis sector.

“We’re pretty excited,” said Dr. Gluckman, “that in addition to the Biden win it was pretty clear that the referendums on the state ballots in the U.S. were extremely positive and forward-looking for the future of cannabis and the significant expansion in the United States which is obviously a huge market.”

Asked about what it means, Dr. Gluckman said that Sixth Wave sees it “as a tremendous opportunity for licensed producers to expand their footprints into different spaces and certainly for new equipment requirements which will include Affinity, so we’re stoked.” Affinity™ is Sixth Wave’s cannabinoid purification system.

Discussing the Affinity cannabinoid purification system revenue model, Dr. Gluckman explains that it work on a “total system performance license” basis, where Sixth Wave provides the technology to licensed cannabis producers on a “small profit margin basis”, but then partners to provide upgrades and maintenance in exchange for a portion of the producer’s revenue stream. As Sixth Wave’s Affinity optimization can save a projected 50% of a producer’s production costs, this mutually beneficial arrangement can create a substantial revenue stream for both the producer and Sixth Wave.

Dr. Gluckman explains to Tracy how the application of Sixth Wave’s patented Molecular Imprint Polymers (#MIPs) technology creates “consistent and high purity” cannabinoid from a producer’s raw material that is essential to creating a commercial product.

Regarding revenue expectations, Dr. Gluckman said that they expect to see revenue through a deal with Green Envy as early as December, and ramping up in the first quarter of 2021. Answering Tracy’s question about investors who missed the “first wave” of cannabis investment, he said that “the very interesting thing now is that what we have seen is that the growers are all growing,” and that “as new states come on board they are all going to need new licensed producers.” And since there are federal restrictions on interstate movement of cannabis, production will have to be local to each state, requiring multiple production facilities

“We’re really looking forward to it and scaling up significantly next year,” Dr. Gluckman said.

Sixth Wave’s Dr Jon Gluckman on the competitive advantages of Molecular Imprint Polymers for the rapid detection of viruses

In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Tracy Weslosky speaks with Dr. Jon Gluckman, President, CEO and Founder of Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW | OTCQB: ATURF) about the application of their patented Molecular Imprint Polymers (#MIPs) technology for the detection of the COVID-19 virus, the flu and virus detection in general.

In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Dr. Gluckman went on to say that their patented #MIPs technology can identify molecules and may be used for detection of viruses in general and more specifically for COVID-19. He added, “We are in the phase 2 of our development for a COVID-19 test that would be completely synthetic test based on our molecular imprinted polymer technology.” Sixth Wave was recently awarded funding from the Nova Scotia COVID-19 Response Council for the development of its Accelerated Molecularly Imprinted Polymer (AMIPs™) technology for the rapid detection of viruses such as SARS-CoV-2.

Speaking on the advantages of their synthetic test Dr. Gluckman said that the two test currently used for COVID-19 detection uses biological material which is fragile and uses tremendous infrastructure to support growing of the biological materials. He explained that Sixth Wave’s technology uses synthetic polymers to detect viruses at a very low cost and allows for extended shelf life, minimal storage and handling requirements, and less sensitivity to temperature and light degradation.
