Arcview Group: Even if Trump Cracks Down, Legal #Marijuana Industry's 27% Annual Growth Rate Through 2021 Remains Unchanged; Projected to Rise from $6.7B to $22.6B

2017-03-23T09:53:10.466-07:00

Arcview Group: Even if Trump Cracks Down, Legal #Marijuana Industry's 27% Annual Growth Rate Through 2021 Remains Unchanged; Projected to Rise from $6.7B to $22.6BReport includes unprecedented new data on product purchase trends in OR, WA, and CO that show an explosion in the number of brands and productsOakland, CA - March 23, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Today, Arcview Market Research, the leading publisher of cannabis market research, released the full 200+ page 5th edition of The State of Legal Marijuana Markets which projects that the state-legal cannabis markets will continue to grow at a 27 percent CAGR through 2021, despite conflicting signals from the Trump administration. The report is the industry's most robust ever released with market projections that rely on a proprietary bottom-up point of sale foundation with millions of individual consumer transactions from dispensary partners in the largest legal cannabis markets across the country created by Arcview's data partner, BDS Analytics.The report details how the two biggest drivers of growth are the passage and subsequent implementation of new adult-use laws and growth of branded product subcategories, such as vape cartridges, edibles, and other alternative consumption methods."While the uncertainty created by the mixed signals coming out of the Administration may cause a temporary dip in some valuations of cannabis companies and some more risk-averse institutional investors and multinational companies may continue to stay on the sidelines, it won't impact the growth of the market much at all," said Troy Dayton, CEO of Arcview Market Research. "No matter what the administration does, states will continue to issue cannabis licenses to a long line of applicants and licensed cannabis outlets will continue to have long lines of consumers ready to purchase this product from regulated establishments."Additional findings from the report include:Legal consumer spending across North America grew 34 percent to $6.7 billion and can be expected to grow at a 27 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years, from $6.7 billion in 2016 to $22.6 billion in 2021;North Americans spent $56.1 billion on legal and illicit cannabis products in 2016, about half of the $105 billion they spent on beer. But only $6.7 billion of that was spent legally and 87 percent of that came from just five states and Canada;Growth in legal cannabis sales has already eroded the illicit market. This erosion will greatly accelerate in 2018 with the arrival of legalized adult-use programs in North America's two biggest markets, California and Canada. Meanwhile, the 20 states without legal cannabis programs contributed nothing to the accelerating erosion of the illicit market;Voters in Florida, Arkansas, Montana, and North Dakota passed medical cannabis initiatives. This means that 63 percent of Americans can legally obtain cannabis with a doctor's recommendation;Voters in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine passed adult-use measures. This more than tripled the portion of Americans that will be able to purchase cannabis without a doctor's recommendation in their home state to 21 percent;Adult-use spending will surpass medical spending for the first time in 2019. By 2021, $14.9 billion (66 percent of total revenue) will be generated through adult-use programs and $7.7 billion (34 percent) through medical use;Compound annual growth rates above 50 percent since adult-use legalization in Colorado and Washington drew significant new segments of the investment community into the legal cannabis industry in 2016, driving triple-digit gains in public stocks and double-digit gains in capital raised by operating companies and a growing group of cannabis-focused investment funds;Pre-rolled product growth sales went up 63 percent in CO, 318 percent in WA and 236 percent in OR; the growth of concentrates and edible products (in[...]



Dawn of the Solar Age - Renewable energy expert corner at www.investorideas.com and renewableenergystocks.com with Peter Lynch

2017-03-23T08:55:59.931-07:00

Dawn of the Solar AgeRenewable energy expert corner at www.investorideas.com and renewableenergystocks.com with Peter LynchRead in full at http://www.investorideas.com/news/2017/renewable-energy/03231Solar.aspMarch 23, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) We are at an historic junction of human history in which we are transitioning from the age of fossil fuels to the age of renewable and distributed energy, in effect a true paradigm shift. The tide has turned and the worldwide momentum is irreversible. This change is occurring all around the world and has been accelerating dramatically in the last three years.One of the most critical and difficult factors to ignore in this accelerated transition is plain and simple - economics.Renewables are in fact cheaper than all forms of fossil fuels when you compare all of the relevant factors - initial cost, timing of cash flows (cost of money), absence of any variable costs for decades, superior job creation by a number of magnitudes, no pollution and huge resultant cleanup costs and few if any health related costs.The truly interesting and significant dichotomy in this transition is that at this time the greatest threat mankind has every faced - Climate Change, is upon us and must be addressed immediately and at the same time Climate Change also presents us with the greatest investment opportunity of all time!Climate Change must be addressed and by far the fastest and cheapest way to address it is with existing renewable technologies - solar, wind, biomass and working together connected to distributed energy networks that are far more flexible, extremely resistant to disruption (storms, terrorism) and have a significantly higher proven reliability.The investment areas are just starting to appear and present themselves and many more will arise as the transition accelerates. It will be the savvy and aware investors and corporations that will take advantage of it.Why it is the Dawn of the Solar AgeIt is the dawn of the solar age because solar and wind are simply: Better, Faster and Cheaper!Better - it is clean, pollution free, abundant, available everywhere, has far less financial risk and is the only energy source that dramatically strengthens national security.Faster - solar scales up as much as 15 times faster than nuclear or fossil fuel plants. There is simply no comparison when it comes to speed of building and the time it takes investors to see an initial return - solar in months, others in years.Cheaper - due to recent dramatic decreases in price (62 per cent for wind and 82 per cent for solar) in the past five years. These decreases have continued in 2015 and 2016 are projected to continue in 2017 and beyond. These do not include other external costs (pollution, health etc.) that are actually far greater.The intrinsic advantages of solar are dramatic and insurmountableSolar is abundant, can be utilized in almost any size (wrist watch to city) and available everywhere. One could say that it is the most "democratic" form of energy in existence.Solar is renewable and is not finite as are all other fuels and it is the only source of energy that can easily supply all our long term needs. ** The energy from approximately three weeks of sunshine hitting the earth is greater than ALL the energy stored in existing fossil fuels.Solar & Wind are also the only energy generation technology’s that do not utilize (and pollute) vast amounts of fresh water. This is a key advantage that is seldom mentioned. However, it is without question, an advantage that is insurmountable for any other sources of energy.Solar & Wind are also the only energy source that do not create or emit carbon and further contribute to climate change.Why investing is different when a 'paradigm shift" is occurring.One of the "old" contrary adages in stock market investing is: "this time it is different" - it is generally associated with novice investors who most of the time, lose money.It is a true that most of the time - things are the same, but du[...]



Cannabis Investor and Expert Alan Brochstein, CFA, Talks about the Evolution of the Sector; the Risks and Opportunities

2017-03-22T12:28:04.365-07:00

Cannabis Investor and Expert Alan Brochstein, CFA, Talks about the Evolution of the Sector; the Risks and Opportunities“I believe that there was a landmark revelation in Spicer's comments that people may be overlooking” - Alan Brochstein, CFAPoint Roberts, WA, Delta, BC – March 6­, 2017 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource covering actively traded sectors including cannabis and hemp stocks features an exclusive interview with Alan Brochstein, CFA. Alan is a well-known expert in the sector and founded 420 Investor, a subscription-based due diligence platform for investors interested in publicly-traded cannabis stocks.Alan talks about the evolution of the sector and some of the short and long term risks and opportunities.Read the interview in full at http://www.investorideas.com/news/2017/marijuana/03061Evolution.aspAlan Brochstein, CFAInterview   Q: Investorideas.comAlan can you share your background and what drew you to the cannabis sector?A: Alan Brochstein, CFAMy entire thirty-year career has been in the investment industry, with most of it in equity analysis and portfolio management. In 2013, when I was running an independent equity research and consulting practice and working with a handful of institutional money managers, I stumbled upon the publicly-traded cannabis stocks and was surprised on a number of fronts. First, just the fact that there were publicly-traded stocks was quite a shock. Second, it didn't seem as if investment professionals were aware. Third, and most importantly, I was disappointed when I looked at these few stocks to see such terrible fundamentals, high valuations and poor corporate governance practices. Quite simply, these companies didn't really reflect the industry. As a teenager who was very involved with the Libertarian Party back in the 80s, cannabis legalization was a big issue for me, but I had really not been paying attention for over twenty years to the progress that was being made. Over the balance of 2013, I devoted a great deal of time to catching up and learning about the social justice, economic, civil liberties and health issues surrounding cannabis legalization.Q: Investorideas.comHow would you break down the past few years in terms of the evolution of the sector and in particular, the impact of the last election in terms of legalization in several new states?A: Alan Brochstein, CFAThe sector has evolved slowly. I joke that I goofed when I named my service "420 Investor" and should have called it "420 Trader". I track about 450 companies in North America, a number that keeps growing. Most of these companies are either stock selling schemes or just not likely to succeed.  The tremendous recent progress of the industry is a two-sided sword, as on the one hand, it represents a fundamental opportunity that attracts investors. At the same time, it also attracts opportunists looking to prey on that investor interest. Hence, the market has been one more appropriate for traders of penny stocks rather than investors.The legalization of Colorado set off a tremendous bull market in the few stocks that were in existence then (back in early 2014), even if the companies weren't ever going to benefit from what was going on in Colorado. Both the Colorado and Washington implementations went reasonably well. While the industry continued to expand, adding Oregon and Alaska to the states that had fully legalized as well as dramatically expanding the number of state-legal medical cannabis programs, the stocks suffered for two years following that early 2014 move where the typical stock went up over 600% in fewer than three months. The recent elections, which doubled the number of "recreational" states, including the addition of California and Massachusetts especially but also Maine and Nevada, brought a lot of interest to the sector, which recently posted levels not seen since early 2015, as measured by the 420 Investor Cannabis Stock Index. Unfortunately, we are seei[...]

Argo Gold (CSE: $ARQ) Update on the Rockstar Gold Project in the Wawa Area

2017-03-16T10:59:38.552-07:00

Argo Gold (CSE: $ARQ) Update on the Rockstar Gold Project in the Wawa Area Toronto, Ontario--(March 16, 2017) – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Argo Gold Inc.'s (CSE: ARQ) ("Argo Gold" or the "Company") Rockstar Gold Project is located 50 kilometres north - northeast of Wawa, Ontario in the Michipicoten Greenstone Belt and covers 2,656 hectares comprised of 16 mineral claims in Jacobson and Riggs Townships. The Michipicoten Greenstone Belt hosts Richmont's Island Gold Mine and past producers including the Magino, Edwards, Cline and Renabie Mines. Argo Gold's Rockstar Gold Project contains six known areas of gold mineralization including the Rockstar Vein and the Tracanelli Vein.The Rockstar Vein was discovered early in 2004 by two prospectors who noted visible gold mineralization in a quartz carbonate vein system hosted in a carbonate alteration zone within mafic volcanics. This vein system was mechanically stripped over a strike length of approximately 80 metres, with surface widths varying from 0.3 to 1.5 metres. Surface grab samples collected in 2004 and 2008 along strike by Band-Ore Resources and Upper Canada Explorations, respectively, had assay results ranging from 1 to 7.89 grams gold per tonne. Grab samples were analyzed by iPL Laboratories and Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay - respectively - using standard fire assay with an AA finish. The grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. No channel sampling has been completed on the mineralized vein and altered shear zone.In 2004 - 2005, Band-Ore Resources completed a sixteen-hole, 1,285 metre diamond drill program to test the Rockstar vein over a strike length of 250 metres and to a depth of 250 metres. The continuity of the Rockstar Vein was also noted by the fact that all drill holes intersected the vein structure. Average intersections ranged from 1-3 grams per tonne over 2 to 3 metres for most intersections with several intersection containing higher grade sections averaging 5 grams per tonne over 1 metre. The Rockstar Vein was intersected to a down-dip length of 250 metres with a consistent dip of -60o. The surface extrapolation of drill hole intersections extends the vein and related structure and alteration for a distance of 250 metres along strike. Figure 1 is a Section view of the Rockstar Gold Vein demonstrating the continuity of the vein.At the time of drilling of the Rockstar Vein (2004 -2005), the strike length of the Rockstar Vein was limited by the property boundary. The adjacent property is now incorporated into the Rockstar Gold Property. Argo Gold has noted that the Rockstar Vein correlates to a linear magnetic anomaly that extends for 5 kilometres on the current Rockstar Gold Property. Figure 2 notes the 5 kilometre linear magnetic anomaly that correlates with the Rockstar Vein.In summary, the continuity of gold mineralization associated with the Rockstar Vein is impressive and the vein system is open down-dip from 250 metres and the horizon is interpreted to extend for 5 kilometres on the Rockstar Gold Property. The east-northeast trending linear magnetic anomaly associated with the Rockstar Vein has been mapped as a gabbro-quartz gabbro (Ontario Geological Survey, Sage, 1990) in contact with mafic metavolcanics. The deposit model under consideration is a shear-hosted quartz vein system at or near the contact between mafic metavolcanics and a gabbro sill.

Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Introduce Sigma EDA Software - electrical connectivity & analysis of an integrated circuit block

2017-03-15T09:09:22.759-07:00

Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Introduce Sigma EDA Software - electrical connectivity & analysis of an integrated circuit blockSan Diego, California, March 15, 2017 – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB:GOPH) (“Gopher” and the "Company”), a development-stage company, which specializes in the development of real-time, heuristic-based – mobile technologies; and its partner, Alpha EDA, LLC (“Alpha”) announce today the completion of development of its software package “SIGMA EDA” (“Sigma”) - tool that checks and corrects electrical connectivity mismatches in an integrated circuit, custom layout block. The tool reads an IC Layout Block, its Netlist and automatically corrects all connectivity mismatches. In addition, the tool provides a layout performance and DFM structural improvements by optimizing polygonal connectivity.Nanometer designs contain millions of devices and operate at very high frequencies. To meet the challenges posed by such large-scale circuits, techniques have been developed to represent integrated circuit designs at various levels of abstraction. According to these techniques, an integrated circuit design may be represented by an electrical schematic containing devices and nets interconnecting the devices and by geometric layout data that describes patterns of regions or elements to be formed in and/or on an integrated circuit substrate. (e.g., wafer) Techniques for managing highly integrated circuit designs include hierarchical design techniques. These hierarchical techniques can be essential to the efficient performance of computer-assisted integrated circuit design verification. Such verification may include operations to perform layout versus schematic comparison (LVS) using computer-based design tools. Today, any mismatches are corrected manually by a layout designer. The layout designer first must find the correct connection and then determine how to create the correct electrical connection in the mask layout database. This process of adding/modifying an electrical connection(s) may take several hours or days to complete. Furthermore, the layout designer may introduce design rule errors in the mask layout database when adding the new connection.  Eliminating the design rule errors may additionally require several more hours or days and thus, increase the design time for the integrated circuit furthermore. Using Sigma these electrical connection mismatches are automatically eliminated within minutes which resulting a massive reduction in the entire chip design time. In addition, the tool includes an Auto-Correct option to automatically correct a completed IC layout block. One of the key advantages of the software is its statistical analysis and violations mapping feature. The program prepares violation statistics including a detailed report of each violation and an automatic correction solution(s). Upon user's approval, Sigma automatically corrects the violation(s), saving hours or days of manual work. After the correction, Sigma rechecks the microchip block to verify that all violations are fixed. “The new method and system deployed via Sigma supports the industry’s newest manufacturing design processes and standards. With Sigma, designers can potentially save weeks and months of IC custom layout design time. This tool especially benefits Analog and Mixed Signal design styles and can eliminate the stress and time of solving a major challenge.”, stated Dr. Rittman the Company and Alpha CTO.

How NXT-ID (NASDAQ: $NXTD) Could Be a Big Player in IoT: Q&A with CEO Gino Pereira

2017-03-14T11:23:20.953-07:00

​How NXT-ID (NASDAQ: $NXTD) Could Be a Big Player in IoT: Q&A with CEO Gino PereiraMarch 14, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The next wave of innovative technologies is already making its way into the mainstream. From digital payments to wearables and even the Internet of Things (IoT), consumers have been longing for a new tech cycle to succeed the maturing smartphone revolution. Now, they're finally getting it. But underneath the surface of sleek interfaces and simple functionality are very complex issues that companies developing these technologies have to wrestle with. In order for a new technology product to succeed, consumers have to be able to trust that it works and that they'll be safe using it.This creates opportunities for a company like NXT-ID (NASDAQ:NXTD), which specializes in developing solutions for identity verification, security and privacy, encryption and data protection, payments, miniaturization and sensor technologies. Equities.com had the opportunity to speak with Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, to learn more about how the company is leveraging its core technology to ride the next wave of tech innovations.Read this release in full at http://www.investorideas.com/CO/NXT/news/2017/03141Interview.asp EQ: NXT-ID is a security technology company that provides solutions to enable users to better manage their digital footprint in key areas such as finance, healthcare and mobile computing. As the world is becoming increasingly more digital, how does NXT-ID's long-term mission align with growing trends like IoT and cybersecurity?Pereira: Well, I think that all this growth and all of these interconnected devices are going to require one critical thing for the whole ecosystem to be successful, and that is essentially trust and security. All of the innovation won't be helping anyone if you don't trust that transactions being done through IoT are secure and your identity is safe. Whether they be payments or simple things like access to your home and your car, that's an essential part of the IoT ecosystem and that's the piece that we feel we can play a big part in.We provide a number of things on the security and authorization front, basically recognizing whether the person using a device is supposed to be using it. We can also provide encryption services to ensure that transmissions in these apps and devices are secure, as well as an authentication and decryption service that gets data to where it needs to go. As long as you have these things, then you can really interconnect devices and be confident in the security of the information that's being transmitted. We think we can be a big piece of that.EQ: As recently as just a few years ago, NXT-ID was known almost exclusively for its Wocket Smart Wallet. Today, the company seems to be getting into several different markets, particularly those in the emerging technology space. How are you able to use the same underlying technology of the Wocket to markets like IoT and digital security so quickly?Pereira: Sure. At heart, our background is in the skills that identify with security technologies. So, we're good at technologies like payments and miniaturization. We have an expertise in biometrics and in encryption technologies as well as sensor technologies. All of these elements are things that work together to help provide security in different features. They could be physical security or they could be digital security. So, the reason why the Wocket was the initial product offering for the company was that we felt that it was the area that had potentially the quickest growth. The whole transition to the dig[...]

Cannabis Stock News; APHRIA (TSX VENTURE: $APH) (OTCQB: $APHQF) AFFIRMS ITS COMMITMENT TO PRODUCING SAFE MEDICAL CANNABIS 100% FREE OF CHEMICAL PESTICIDESLEAMINGTON, ONTARIO, March 13, 2017 (Investorideas Newswire) In light of recent media coverage, Aphria Inc. ("Aphria" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: APH) (OTCQB: APHQF) issued the following statement with respect to its ongoing commitment to providing pharmaceutical-grade cannabis that is free of chemical pesticides. Vic Neufeld, Chief Executive Officer of Aphria, said, “Aphria has always held itself to the highest standards when it comes to the cultivation and production of medical cannabis. As part of this, we made a strategic investment in a state-of-the-art greenhouse in Leamington, Ontario, which enables us to produce medical cannabis that meets our exacting standards of quality, consistency, and safety.” “Aphria is committed to product integrity through every step of the growing process. We make our own fertilizer, which significantly reduces the risk of unwanted chemicals that can be found in ‘pre-mixed’ fertilizers. Additionally, we do not use chemical pesticides in the production of medical cannabis; we only use biological controls in the Leamington greenhouse. To be clear, Aphria has never supported the use of Myclobutanil.” “Since Aphria was founded, we have enforced a strict Quality Management Program that continuously tests for pesticides, including Myclobutanil. We closely monitor all suppliers to ensure that any products used meet or exceed the minimum standards set to comply with Health Canada's regulations. As we noted in December, we support the use of independent evaluations and testing of medical cannabis as a necessary measure to protect the safety of Canadians.” “In all, Aphria has adopted pharmaceutical-grade quality assurance and quality control processes, many of which are over and above what is required by Health Canada. We recognize that patients rely on a safe and high quality product to meet their medical needs and it is critically important that all products sold through the ACMPR adhere to the strict guidelines established by Health Canada to ensure that their needs are met.” “Aphria management has over 35 years of experience in agriculture and 20 years in the pharmaceutical space, we don’t need to rely on chemicals because we know how to grow naturally.” Read this release in full at http://www.investorideas.com/420cannabisinvestorideas/Companies/APH/news/2017/03131Commitment.aspAbout Aphria Aphria Inc., one of Canada’s lowest cost producers, produces, supplies and sells medical cannabis.

ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP (OTCQB: ADYNF) ANNOUNCES RESEARCH AGREEMENT WITH UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN ONTARIO TO INVESTIGATE THE USE OF CANNABIS DERIVATIVES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL PHARMACOTHERAPIES FOR MENTAL HEALTHTORONTO, CANADA / March 13, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP (OTCQB: ADYNF) (the "Company"), a development stage company focused onthe development of unique health products and pharmaceuticals utilizing cannabis and algae oils, today announced a research and product development agreement with Western University  to perform research on cannabis oil and its constituents in the context of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia. This is the second of the recently announced research agreements with Canadian universities involving cannabis oil research. This announcement brings Algae Dynamics total university research contributions to $1. 6 million for both programs.This announcement follows the Company’s previously announced new strategic initiative to explore the extraction of oils from other botanicals, most notably cannabis, and to seek product development and formulation opportunities that combine the benefits of algae and cannabis oils. This research agreement will directly support this initiative and will “focus on translational pharmaceutical research, with a specific focus on identifying how specific phytochemical compounds found in cannabis, including delta-9-tetrahydrocannbinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinoid-derived terpenoids and other potential phytochemical derivatives of cannabis may serve as novel pharmacological treatments for symptoms associated with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia.” Paul Ramsay, Chairman and President of the Company said, “With this research agreement, we are building upon the previously announced strategic initiative into the use of extracts from cannabis oil, in conjunction with algae oil, to develop unique health products and formulations. In our previous press release, we outlined a three-part approach, the first being Research and Development work with Canadian universities. This is the second of such research agreements relating to the use of botanical extracts including cannabinoids that we expect to employ”.The investigator leading the research is Dr. Steven Laviolette,  a Professor and Neuroscientist in the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University. Dr. Laviolette is a leader in the study of cannabinoids in mental health. Dr. Laviolette’s research team has previously made numerous fundamental discoveries related to how cannabinoids impact and may serve as treatments for mental health disorders including schizophrenia, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. Dr. Laviolette’s primary research focus is in characterizing how specific phytochemical derivatives of cannabis may interact with specific brain pathways and molecular mechanisms whereby they may improve symptoms associated with various mental health disorders. Research from Dr. Laviolette’s team has been published in the top neuroscience and psychiatry journals in the world.

Aethlon Medical (NASDAQ: $AEMD) Announces the Conclusion of Hemopurifier Clinical Study

2017-03-13T11:24:07.764-07:00

Aethlon Medical (NASDAQ: $AEMD) Announces the Conclusion of Hemopurifier Clinical StudySAN DIEGO, CA - March 13, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEMD), a therapeutic technology company focused on unmet needs in global health and biodefense, announced today that the company has concluded an FDA-approved feasibility study designed to assess the safety of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® in health-compromised individuals. The single-site study was conducted at DaVita Med Center Dialysis in Houston, Texas. The Hemopurifier is a first-in-class medical device that reduces the presence of circulating viruses in infected individuals. The technology is a first-line candidate defense against a broad-spectrum of viruses that are not addressed with antiviral drug therapies, including natural occurring pandemic threats and agents of bioterrorism.  Additionally, the device provides a strategy to augment the benefit of proven antiviral drug regimens.The Hemopurifier had previously been administered to individuals infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV), HIV and the Ebola virus, for which it was approved by the FDA under Emergency-Use Authorization.  In the feasibility study, the Hemopurifier was observed to be well tolerated in End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) volunteers who were also infected with Hepatitis C virus (HCV). The inclusion of HCV-infected ESRD subjects served as a model to demonstrate virus reduction. No device-related adverse events were observed in enrolled subjects who met the study inclusion/exclusion criteria. The study originally was estimated to enroll ten subjects, but was concluded after the treatment of eight subjects based on the Hemopurifier being well-tolerated in the study, the breadth of previous human treatment experiences and the absence of qualified HCV-infected ESRD candidates at the study location. "We achieved our primary study objective, which was to demonstrate that our Hemopurifier can be safely administered to very health-compromised individuals," stated Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical. "We will now proceed to submit a final report and look forward to collaborating with our FDA review team to establish market clearance pathways to treat viral threats that are not well addressed with traditional drug therapies."In preclinical studies, the Hemopurifier has been demonstrated to capture a wide-range of bioterror and pandemic threats that are not addressed with antiviral drug therapies.Aethlon believes the device can fulfill the broad-spectrum medical countermeasure objective of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasure Enterprise (PHEMCE).  This initiative is directed toward bioterror, pandemic threats and other pathogens that are not well addressed with drug or vaccine therapies.The Company also seeks to advance the Hemopurifier under the provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act, which was signed into law in December 2016.  The Act establishes new rules that direct the FDA to approve drugs and devices with greater urgency.  Specific to medical devices, the Act requires the FDA to establish a priority review program for "breakthrough" devices, or for devices that target diseases for which no FDA-cleared or approved alternatives are available.Read this release in full at http://www.investorideas.com/CO/AEMD/news/2017/03131Hemopurifier.aspAbout The Study ProtocolThe study was a single-arm, sequential, controlled feasibility/safety study in which [...]

On Friday March 10, the SEC released the following decision:                           “The Commission is disapproving this proposed rule change because it does not find the proposal to be consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Exchange Act, which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices and to protect investors and the public interest.”"Based on the record before it, the Commission believes that the significant markets for bitcoin are unregulated.
