BioElectronics Corp. (BIEL) Drug-Free, OTC Therapies on Target to Meet Affordable Pain Relief Demand

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Life Science Intelligence (LSI) tells us pain is the single most common reason patients seek medical care and is attributable for approximately half of all physician office visits in the United States. Estimated economic impact of pain, disability and lost productivity costs equals $100 billion annually. In 2010, combined U.S. sales of pain management products (pharmaceuticals and devices) totaled approximately $33.1 billion. Over the forecast period covered in an LSI study, total sales of pain management products are expected to eclipse $38.2 billion this year.

BioElectronics is a company that understands the needs of the market and as a result has the know-how to introduce new ways to treat pain and inflammation. The company has developed a pain therapy that is effective, easy to use and is a localized treatment with no known adverse side effects. By leveraging electromagnetic diathermy which has been available for decades, BioElectronics has miniaturized the technology allowing the therapy to be used around the clock. What’s new is that this innovation has transformed the expensive, clinic based treatment, and made it affordable and available to be used every day. Because it is a simple localized treatment, it can be used as a standalone or adjunct therapy depending on the condition at hand. Clinical study has revealed that it is an effective therapy for both acute pain and chronic pain.

Founded in 2000, the company’s topical pain medical devices include ActiPatch therapy for over-the-counter treatment of back pain and other musculoskeletal complaints, Allay menstrual cycle pain therapy, RecoveryRx for chronic and post-operative wound care, and HealFast, a drug-free therapy for healing of muscle and tendon injuries, sores, and incision in horses, cats, and dogs. The company markets and sells its products under the ActiPatch, Allay, and RecoveryRx brand names through distributors primarily in Korea, Singapore, Canada, Columbia, Scandinavia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, the Balkans, China, South America and Australia.

In what can be viewed as a confirmation of the uniqueness of the company’s product line, BIEL recently announced that its Executive Vice President, Dr. Deepak Kotak has been invited to present BioElectronics’ innovative chronic pain therapy at the OTC Pharma Asia Conference in Singapore on March 3, 2015. Conference details can be found at www.otcpharmaasia.com.

Dr. Kotak plans to deliver a presentation entitled, “ActiPatch® Pain Therapy – Changing the Paradigm of OTC Chronic Pain.” The talk describes the science and how this OTC drug-free therapy is changing the way we view pain management and how it brings “life-changing relief” to those who suffer with chronic pain.

Dr. Kotak commented, “ActiPatch provides effective local pain treatment reducing the need for systemic therapies such as NSAID’s and opioids, and reduces the risk of side-effects and adverse events that are a burden to the chronic pain population. Our customers are reporting superior relief to most analgesics for conditions like fibromyalgia, back pain and arthritis.” As part Dr. Kotak’s presentation, he will also share his vision for BioElectronics technology and how it can be used to address a variety of other health care issues in society today.

BioElectronics is a leader in biophysics and the maker of a line of disposable, drug-free, pain therapy devices; ActiPatch® Therapy, over-the-counter treatment for back pain and other musculoskeletal complaints; RecoveryRx® Devices for chronic and post-operative wound care; Allay® Menstrual Pain Therapy; and HealFast® Therapy for dogs, cats and horses.

Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Remains Sturdy Competitor amid Industry Consolidations

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

During the last decade or so the stock transfer agency market has undergone considerable consolidation as smaller agencies exited the business or were acquired by larger agents. New technology, changing regulation and increasing competition also whittled the size of the playing filed into what is now an industry led by a small handful of vendors.

With healthy competition among the remaining players, companies seeking out a transfer agent can enjoy an easier selection process by vetting each agent’s customer service, price options and track record. Competition is divided into larger and smaller agencies, and what many small-cap companies discover is that bigger isn’t always better.

Mega transfer agents typically work with larger companies with hundreds of thousands of shareholders; certainly a valuable service to behemoth brands. Companies with 50,000 or fewer shareholders, however, benefit from the cost, personal attention, expertise and availability of a smaller agent such as Continental Stock Transfer & Trust. The agent’s award-winning, 50-year history bucks the notion that quality is compromised when delivered in a smaller package.

Continental offers the fundamentals and extended offerings you’d expect from a transfer agent that not only survived but gained strength throughout mass industry consolidation.

The agent offers comprehensive shareholder recordkeeping, transaction history, shareholder and stock activity reports, annual meeting management, dividend distribution, as well as industry-mandated services such as shareholder searches and escheatment. The agent also offers stock plan administration and services pertaining to corporate actions and escrow services. Continental has managed hundreds of IPOs and virtually all special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs ) brought to market in the last 20 years.

Continental was founded in 1964 to fully support smaller to midsize emerging and growth companies with optimal client responsiveness and uniquely tailored business solutions. The agent has maintained this vision and commitment to this specific market throughout its history.

As the fourth-largest agent (again, among only a handful) in the United States, Continental offers something mega transfer agents cannot: an approach aptly focused on providing each company with personal attention from senior staff, flexible offerings and innovative technology. Annual industry surveys back Continental’s claims, year after year demonstrating the agent’s stellar track record of superior customer satisfaction.

Oriens Travel and Hotel Management, Inc. (OTHM) CEO Pereira Pens Fervent Letter to Shareholders

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Since Oriens Travel and Hotel Management’s former CEO resigned from his post in early September, the company has issued a series of announcements describing the advances of the company under the new leadership of current CEO Melvin Pereira.

In a recent letter to shareholders, the new chief executive contrasted Oriens’ beginnings to the direction in which he intends to guide the company.

To read the full letter visit http://orienscorp.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/the-entropy-of-oriens-part-i/

“Oriens stemmed from a very controlled idea. An idea of creating an impressive booking engine model that would be ahead of its time. A model that would take advantage of new internet protocols which would ultimately push Oriens branding and booking model to the forefront,” he writes in the letter.

“However, as soon as that purest idea was taken and introduced into the micro-cap public environment … BANG! Chaos ensued, and disorder began … My job is not to bring Oriens to its original state. No force in the known universe can reverse that kind of disorder. BUT, what I can do… and what WE will do together, is begin to shift the balance of disorder to order.”

In defending the company’s anticipated reverse split, Pereira states:

“I need the shareholders of Oriens to understand one thing. The Company as you once knew it, was in chaos. Oriens was holding an unimaginable amount of debt, with little to no assets, minimal revenue if any at all, and just enough incompetence at the executive level to cause a lot of discomfort. I am confident that this reverse split will cause far less discomfort in comparison, and support the true value that has already been delivered to the Company through this acquisition/merger.”

Breast Cancer Awareness Beyond October

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Today, October 31st, marks the end of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) campaign. DreamTeamNetwork has supported and promoted this cause in a number of ways, including posting a series of blogs on breast cancer awareness.

We hope you’ve been reading and learning about the latest research and news concerning this disease. We also hope that whatever awareness you’ve gained this October endures beyond the month and year and into the future.

In that vein, we’d like to leave you with some parting words:

— As a global community, we all can benefit from a special reminder that breast cancer has no cure and cannot be ignored. It’s a disease that over 520,000 people worldwide and 40,000 people in the United States, mainly women but not exclusively so, die from each year.

— A major step you can take now in the fight against breast cancer is to do your research and learn more about the disease. Support organizations that are inspiring change through education and awareness. Visit the websites of major and minor breast cancer research organizations and advocacy groups.

— While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages or to encourage others to do the same. We could do more to change that.

— Too many people are wrestling with serious diseases year-round, not only breast cancer but other cancers and diseases as well. Dealing with these diseases can be overwhelming. We could do more to lend support.

— Patients should be informed of all of their options and given room to ask questions of their physicians. The best medical care happens when patients are educated about their condition and care options and share in decisions about their care.

In the end, cancer prevention is a collaborative effort. In support of the mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and women in our lives, we all can strive to inspire society to contribute to a healthier environment and, ultimately, a cancer-free world.

Chembio Partners, Inc. (CEMI) Announces Partnership with BioTherapeutics, Inc. to Develop Point-of-Care Diagnostic Tests for Ebola and Febrile Illness

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Chembio Diagnostics, a leader in point-of-care (POC) diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Integrated BioTherapeutics, Inc. (IBT), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery of novel vaccines and therapeutics for emerging infectious diseases. Under the terms of the agreement, Chembio will combine its patented DPP® technology with IBT’s proprietary Ebola reagents to develop POC diagnostic tests for Ebola and febrile illness. Chembio will have exclusive rights to any POC product developed through this agreement. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

While Ebola has caused multiple outbreaks since 1976, the frequency of epidemics in the past 15 years has drastically increased and the current outbreak in West Africa has reached unprecedented dimensions. Over 10,000 people have been infected with Ebola and recent cases outside the African continent are drawing concern from public health officials. Currently, the diagnosis of Ebola hemorrhagic fever can only be performed in specialized laboratories. This limitation significantly delays the identification and isolation of the patients who have Ebola and in turn likely makes it more difficult to control an outbreak or prevent new epidemics.

Javan Esfandiari, Chembio’s Chief Science & Technology Officer and the inventor of Chembio’s DPP® technology, commented, “We are pleased to partner with IBT, a biotechnology company with extensive experience and a substantial number of reagents for Ebola and other filoviruses, to develop a DPP® Ebola assay. In 2013, we partnered with the U.S. Government to develop a multiplex POC febrile illness assay which, in 20 minutes, can detect antigens from five different viruses, bacteria, and parasites with a single, finger-stick drop of blood. The resulting product, DPP® Febrile Illness Assay, is currently in clinical trials in several countries, including the region of West Africa. Our intent is to develop a stand-alone POC DPP® Ebola test and also include an Ebola test as part of our existing multiplex DPP® Febrile Illness Assay.”

John Sperzel, Chembio’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The partnership with IBT is a significant step in our continued efforts to expand Chembio’s POC infectious disease portfolio. Our prior success developing the multiplex DPP® Febrile Illness Assay demonstrates Chembio’s ability to create such tests in a short amount of time, and we believe this partnership illustrates the value that our DPP® technology brings to the broader diagnostic market. Through this agreement, Chembio’s goal is to further develop innovative, sensitive and specific POC diagnostic tests for detection of febrile illnesses, including Ebola.”

M. Javad Aman, President and Chief Scientific Officer of IBT, commented, “We are facing a humanitarian crisis and global public health challenge. Development of a rapid POC test for Ebola will be a critical step towards enabling early detection and quarantine that could help save countless lives. Through this partnership, the capabilities of the two companies will be combined to produce a POC product we believe will meet this serious challenge in a timely manner.”

Shifting the Focus of Breast Cancer Awareness

Monday, October 20th, 2014

All throughout October 2014, DreamTeamNetwork will be posting a succession of blogs on breast cancer awareness, research and more news in support of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign. We are proud to show our continued support for this compassionate, laudable cause and hope you will too!

This year, we have been shining the light on a different kind of breast cancer awareness—a message more appropriate to today. Today’s message of awareness might adapt and shift focus in a number of different directions, including:

Emphasizing Unmet Needs
People with metastatic breast cancer are living an incredibly difficult existence with a long-term diagnosis. They go about their lives with an incurable condition, receiving treatment until death.

Pointing to Critical Areas for Research
Certain crucial areas to be researched include:

• Breast cancer’s causes – The more that is known about the causes of breast cancer, the more the cancer might be prevented;

• Metastases – The more is known about why secondary malignant growths develop at a distance from a primary site of cancer, the more these too might be prevented or better managed, if and/or when they arise;

• Better, more effective and less harmful treatments for all molecular subtypes of the disease; and

• Improvements in diagnostics or pathology so that patients with minimal or slow tumors can safely avoid overtreatment.

Stressing That Patients Have Options
Patients should be informed of all of their options and given room to ask questions of their physicians. The best medical care happens when patients are educated about their condition and care options, can enter the doctor’s office or clinic with a reasonable understanding of their condition and choices, and share in decisions about their care.

Recognizing That the World is Disease-ridden
Awareness is important but it also demands perspective, including the fact that breast cancer is one of many illnesses from which all kinds of people suffer and some die. There is no severity or merit contest for cancer. Each person in each situation deserves good medical care provided with respect and access to the necessary medication.

To take action and make a difference, consider supporting National Breast Cancer Foundation (www.nationalbreastcancer.org) or one of the many other organizations fighting against this deadly cancer.

Intelligent Highway Solutions, Inc. (IHSI) Pursues Greener Pastures

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Intelligent Highway Solutions is branching out. The developing Sacramento, California-based company is taking its vast knowledge of electrical solutions and applying them to new commercial ventures—of late, agricultural lighting systems and smart parking systems.

From the time it was established in 2011, IHSI has developed high and low voltage electrical solutions for commercial use as well as for various platforms—advanced lighting systems, electrical installations, temperature control systems and communication and wireless integration. Nowadays though, IHSI is using the latest technological developments to advance plant growing and commercial parking systems.

Agricultural Applications

IHSI holds exclusive distribution rights to lighting technologies that have the potential to improve yields and reduce costs for plant growers engaged in the legal cannabis industry. Consequently, the company has been offering its proprietary lighting systems as a leading solution for this booming sector.

With the installation of the company’s 300-watt lighting system, it is expected that medical cannabis growing facilities can generate larger, healthier yields of cannabis. The 300-watt lighting system is enhanced with increased lumens and photon density to achieve energy savings and provide the plant nursery with the necessary color spectrum and light to create an optimal growing environment. The company’s 100-watt system, which runs at a lower temperature, has also resulted in substantial energy reduction.

Victura Construction Group, Inc. (VICT) is on the Front Lines after Catastrophic Events

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Last May marked the infamous, three-year anniversary of the EF-5 tornado that tore through Joplin, Missouri, just across the northeastern Oklahoma border. As one local reporter noted, the city, like Moore, Oklahoma, lost a hospital. The community’s health care facilities became symbols of overall recovery and revival.

Victura Construction Group is a holding company focused on strategic acquisitions within the construction industry that service the restoration and re-building needs that follow catastrophic events. The company in many ways can be considered a vital player in the overall recovery process through the deployment of solid business practices and management, ethics and financial resources where applicable. The foundation of VICT’s business model is driven through its leveraging of strategic industry relationships to help ensure success on behalf of company acquisitions.

VICT’s service niche becomes even more valuable following the overlay of post catastrophic event market statistics. Weather and climate disaster data strongly suggests construction expertise and resources following such an event not only have played a pivotal role in the economic and emotional rebuilding process but one whose relevance will continue grow and be relied upon following natural and technological disasters going forward. In 2013, there were 9 weather/climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States. These events included a drought event, 2 flooding events, and 6 severe storm events. Overall, these events resulted in the deaths of 113 people and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted. Given the daunting economic strain of such occurrences, the relevance of VICT’s business model becomes crucial.

While opportunity for players within the construction industry predictably mirrors economic indicators such as gross domestic product (GDP), housing starts and current employment statistics, Victura’s market opportunity is identified through occurrences which are ‘catastrophic’ by nature, making the target far more apparent and verifiable.

A common occurrence accounting for massive economic impact, both positive and negative, comes in the form of coastal area flooding. As we continue to refine and improve our country’s recovery mechanism, never before has the need for swift, proficient and cost effective renovation and re-build services been more apparent. Reuters reports that as sea levels rise, tidal flooding along the U.S. coast is likely to become so common that parts of many communities, including the nation’s capital, could become unusable within three decades, according to a new report from nonprofit science advocacy organization, Union of Concerned Scientists.

The report’s projections build on recent studies – including one by Reuters published last July – that documented a dramatic increase in tidal flooding over the past half century. Many coastal communities are already struggling to cope with routine flooding that makes streets impassable and overwhelms storm-water systems.

Using a methodology similar to those of the recent studies, scientists projected the trends 15 to 30 years into the future at 52 sites around the country. The study used moderate sea-level rise projections from the National Climate Assessment, a U.S. government report based on input from some 300 scientists, engineers, industry officials and other specialists.

With flooding being just one of dozens of events creating revenue opportunities for VICT, it is clear the company is doing well demonstrating the necessary experience and market sense to differentiate itself and seize burgeoning market opportunities to the benefit of its shareholders.

A Different Kind of Breast Cancer Awareness

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Throughout October, DreamTeamNetwork will be posting a series of blogs on topics dealing with breast cancer awareness, research and other news in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). We are proud to show our support for this cause and hope you will too!

As the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign marks another year, it may sometimes appear dated and unnecessary. For the advocates however, the need for more breast cancer awareness, research and better care hasn’t waned. Patients may have different needs and advocates different styles but patients also need support and researchers funds.

As a global community, we all can benefit from a special reminder that breast cancer has no cure and cannot be ignored. It is a disease that over 520,000 people worldwide and 40,000 people in the United States, mainly woman but not exclusively so, die from each year.

So, maybe what is needed this October then is a new kind of breast cancer awareness about details, such as the following:

• There are some parts of the world, including a few U.S. communities, where a stigma about having cancer endures. The existence of the NBCAM campaign may just lead a few women who are hesitant about seeking out care for breast tumors to go and get it.

• For some people affected with breast cancer, cheerful walks and other activities organized for NBCAM provide an opportunity to find solidarity and support.

• Too many people are wrestling with serious diseases year-round, not only breast cancer but other cancers and diseases as well. For all the good intentions and enthusiasm that NBCAM brings together, a heartening vibe sometimes runs counter to the overwhelming nature of the disease.

To take action and make a difference, consider supporting National Breast Cancer Foundation (www.nationalbreastcancer.org) or one of the many other organizations fighting against this deadly cancer.

The market opportunity appears to be bright as sleep apnea is estimated to affect about 4% of men and 2% of women. In one study referenced at MedicineNet.com of people over 18 years of age, “obstructive sleep apnea was estimated to develop in 1.5% of people per year over the 5 year study. It is probably more common than either of these numbers because the population is becoming more obese, and obesity worsens obstructive sleep apnea.”

Within the highly competitive, preventative medicine marketplace, investors can rest assured Sanomedics is engaged in activity necessary for its financial health and viability. The company has just announced its liabilities have been reduced by 8% and in so doing has strengthened its balance sheet following the restructure of $1 Million, plus interest, in debt owed to TCA Global Credit Master Fund LP (“TCA”). The restructure of its TCA debt was announced in a press release and a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 29, 2014.

Sanomedics President, Keith Houlihan, added, “Our plans to build a solid foundation and strengthen the value of this company and its balance sheet, while garnering financial flexibility have not wavered in the slightest. Rather, they have been re-energized with this modest, but significant improvement in our liabilities. We remain committed to putting this company on the right path to long term growth and appreciation for benefit of not only Sanomedics and our shareholders, but also those in the healthcare industry that need innovative solutions to meet the patient care and safety demands that come with our growing and aging population.”

Additionally, SIMH designs, develops, markets, and distributes a line of non-contact clinical thermometers in the United States. The company’s products are served to the market under the Caregiver name to healthcare providers. This group includes hospitals, medical clinics, physician’s offices, assisted living facilities, acute care hospitals, and a variety of long-term care institutions. It sells its products through distributors, resellers, and sales representatives and is located in Miami, Florida.

DreamTeamNetwork (DTN) Supports National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Monday, October 6th, 2014

October 1st kicked off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign to:

• Increase awareness of the disease
• Raise funds for research into the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of the disease
• Offer the latest information and additional support to those affected by breast cancer

While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages or to encourage others to do the same. A lot of progress has been made but there is still a long way to go.

This year, DreamTeamNetwork is supporting the cause and we hope you will too! We have been dedicated to this cause for years and are proud to show our support once again. Throughout the month of October, we will be posting a series of blogs on topics related to breast cancer research, awareness, and other news.

A major step you can take now in the fight against breast cancer is to learn more about the disease. Do your research. Visit the websites of major and minor breast cancer charities, research organizations and advocacy groups. Support organizations that are inspiring change through education and awareness, organizations such as the:

National Breast Cancer Foundation (www.nationalbreastcancer.org)
The NBCF provides mammograms—a major diagnostic and screening tool used to detect breast cancer early—for women in need.

Breast Cancer Action (www.bcaction.org)
The breast cancer advocacy organization actively promotes discussions about the causes and prevention of breast cancer.

Out of the Shadow of Pink (www.outoftheshadowofpink.com)
In 2009, this male breast cancer advocacy group, along with A Man’s Pink and the Brandon Greening Foundation for Breast Cancer in Men, joined together to globally establish the third week of October as “Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week.” While occurrences of male breast cancer are rare and generally overlooked, they do occur.

The system was initially created to aid people with memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s, dementia and autism, but is now known to help journalists, diplomats and frequent business travelers who travel to dangerous regions of the world by keeping their loved ones and co-workers updated as to their whereabouts.

Citing the dangers that members of the media and international professionals face in their travels and work overseas, H.E. Ambassador and CEO of The Brewer Group Companies, Jack Brewer, references the power of GPS SmartSoles as providing a real sense of security in today’s uncertain world. GTX Corp. believes the SmartSoles, worn within the sole of ones shoe, can provide a much-needed solution to today’s escalating security challenges.

The GPS SmartSoles mini-proprietary GPS/cellular chipset and SIM card is unique to each wearer. The GPS SmartSoles communicate via cellular networks and send location coordinates through a wireless data connection, similar to sending SMS messages on a cell phone. This system creates a safety net of reliability and peace of mind for its users.

Chairman and CEO of GTX Corp., Patrick Bertagna, said, “First we want to thank Jack and his team for helping us create awareness in this new vertical application for the SmartSoles. We believe the personal security market has big potential, especially in light of all that is happening in the world with journalists, high profile individuals and international travelers. Heightened security has become top of mind as global uncertainty grows. In the event of the unthinkable happening, time is your best hope, so knowing in near real-time if someone has gone missing maximizes their chance of a safe recovery. Our GPS SmartSoles were originally created to monitor the whereabouts of individuals at risk of wandering with the intent to quickly and safely recover them. The security market is a direct extension of our core purpose, providing a seamless solution for a newly at risk audience of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
