Generex Biotechnology Corporation’s (OTCMKTS:GNBT) Subsidiary Nugenerex Immuno-Oncology To Develop New Swine Flu Virus Vaccine

Published

on

Generex Biotechnology Corporation’s (OTCMKTS:GNBT) wholly-owned subsidiary NuGenerex Immuno-Oncology launched a vaccine development initiative to address the emerging new pandemic threat from the recently identified Swine flu virus.

Chinese scientist report new swine flu virus

According to a paper published by Chinese scientists in the Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences, a new swine flu virus can be transmitted to humans. This newly identified virus is the same as the 2009 swine flu virus that globally killed around 500,000 people. CDC estimates that the 2009 swine flu caused around 60.8 million illnesses, with over 12,469 deaths in the US between April 12, 2009, and April 10, 2010. What is worrying is that a surveillance program with pig farmers indicated a high level of antibodies to the G4 EA H1 virus, which shows a pig’s possibility to human transmission and, thus, another pandemic.

However, NuGenerex Immuno-Oncology is well placed to respond to this threat after completing the first phase of human trials with its Ii-Key peptide vaccine. The vaccine has been designed to trigger an immune response acting against the H1 hemagglutinin protein found in the H1 swine flu strain of 2009.

Ii-Key peptide vaccine can help against the new swine flu virus

The company’s CEO Joseph Moscato indicated that the company’s Ii-key immune response activation tech has been designed to develop highly specific and targeted vaccines. They activate both antibody and T-cell responses, making a “complete vaccine” against viruses and cancer antigens. Moscato indicated that the Ii-Key tech platform was created for quick, economic, and effective responses for vaccine development against cancer antigens and viruses. The vaccines are based on an amino acid peptide sequence of target proteins that are easily neutralized by immune responses.

Most importantly, the Ii-Key peptide vaccinations have shown safety without indications of off-target immune responses in the first and second phase trials conducted so far. Therefore the Ii-Key tech is suitable for pandemic preparedness, and the company plans to pursue its clinical development for cancer vaccines.

Can B Corp (OTCMKTS: CANB) Signs Partnership To Market CBD Products and Releases Q1 2021 Results

Published

on

Can B Corp (OTCMKTS: CANB) has entered a partnership with a company comprising World Champion Action Sports Athletes and Professional Hollywood Stuntmen to market the Can B Corp’s existing select CBD products and launch a new CBD brand at the end of the summer. 

Can B enters a partnership for its CBD products 

Notably, the Professional Hollywood Stuntmen group lists film credits include The Hunger Games, Breaking bad, Ant-Man, Twilight Saga, Fast & Furious 7, Jason Bourne, Mulan, The Expendables Better Call Saul, and others. Additionally, the group will commence marketing Can B Corp’s CBD products Slave 100& 200 mg and CryoGel Gold 500 mg. 

Can B CEO Marco Alfonsi said, “This is a really exciting new partnership for our Company, as it provides a new untapped distribution channel for our manufacturing and production, which remains under-utilized. Our Lacey, Washington facility continues to have an excess capacity which we can use for new private label customers. This group of Professional Hollywood Stuntmen and World Champion Action Sports Athletes has great exposure and a wide social media following, which they will utilize to market and advertise the CBD products.”

Can B’s Q1 2021 revenue dropped 46%

Recently the company announced its Q1 2021, during which revenue was $306,940, a 46% YoY decline. The drop resulted from the pandemic’s impact leading to the halting of elective surgeries, which is the primary medical device revenue source for the company. Additionally, some distributors lost clients because of business closure impacting the company’s overall revenue. During the quarter, the company closed the acquisition of talent and assets from Botanical Biotech. 

Alfonsi stated, “While we experienced a decline in our revenue due to Covid-19’s negative impact on markets we serve in elective surgeries and lost clients due to business closings of certain distributors, we have taken the time to maintain and strengthen our vertically integrated platform.”
