Mothers’ Milk Bank Announces Critical Need for Donor Milk

Mothers' Milk Bank

Mothers’ Milk Bank (MMB), the California-based nonprofit, is inviting lactating mothers to join its network of milk donors, aiming to expand its pool of contributors. This announcement comes on the heels of a new University of Iowa study on the health benefits of donated breast milk for extremely premature infants. The importance of donated breast milk has garnered international media attention in recent months after tennis champion Serena Williams shared her milk donation in a viral social media post. In response to the significant demand for human donor milk and the urgent need to support our communities' most vulnerable members, Mother’s Milk Bank is leading a comprehensive initiative to recruit new milk donors. This initiative includes "Milk Meet-Ups," providing opportunities for individuals to begin the month-long process of qualifying as milk donors. These Meet-Ups will kick off with an in-person Milk Drive on February 29 in Madera County at the Madera Department of Public Health, marking the start of an ambitious Milk Donor Drive aiming to enlist 5,000 new donors throughout 2024. Mothers’ Milk Bank Milk Meet-Up Schedule: Madera County (north of Fresno): Madera Department of Public Health Date: February 29, 2024 | Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm Location: 1604 Sunrise Ave, Madera, CA 93638 | Oz Conference Room Los Angeles County: Henry Mayo’s Lactation Department Date: March 28, 2024 | Time: TBD Location: 23861 McBean Pkwy Suite B-14 Valencia CA, 91355 VIRTUAL Milk Drive with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Click to start the donor registration process beginning April 1, 2024 Santa Cruz County: Watsonville Community Hospital Date: May 2, 2024 | Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm Location: 75 Nielson St., Watsonville, CA 95076 | Conference Room 1 & 2 Sacramento County: McKinley Park Date: May 3, 2024 | Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm Location: 601 Alhambra Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95816 Placer County: Women’s & Children’s Center Date: May 4, 2024 | Time:10:00am - 1:00pm Location: 1600 Eureka Rd., Roseville, CA 95661 | Building B Premature infants, medically fragile babies, and those with special medical needs depend on donated breast milk for their survival. In 2023, over 2,000 generous donors contributed to Mothers’ Milk Bank, providing 1.64 million ounces of this life-saving mothers’ milk to babies in need across the United States. Recognizing the growing demand, Mothers’ Milk Bank anticipates an increased need in 2024. To meet this demand, the organization aims to recruit 5,000 lactating mothers from diverse backgrounds to become donors of this precious "liquid gold”. The process to become a donor typically takes a month, resulting in an ongoing need to recruit new donors to ensure a steady supply of donor milk. On average, most donors only send milk for less than one year or until their baby turns one, it is critical to consistently raise awareness of the importance of donating surplus mothers’ milk. “We are experiencing a pressing need for more milk donors, and it's vital for the welfare of the infants depending on our services that we expand our donor network without delay," states Jennifer Benito-Kowalski, chief executive officer of Mothers' Milk Bank. Mothers who are currently breastfeeding and have excess milk are encouraged to consider donating to help fill this crucial need. To start the process, visit the Mothers’ Milk Bank website to fill out an application. Those who are unable to donate breast milk can still help by sponsoring a cooler for $98 or by making a financial contribution. Why donate breast milk? The need for donated breast milk remains constant, especially for infants facing health complications. According to the National Institute of Health, more than 300,000 babies require advanced medical care in neonatal intensive care units across the United States every year. This need may arise when infants are born prematurely before their mother's milk has developed, when they face specific health challenges during infancy, or when they are adopted or born through surrogacy. Eligible milk donors include lactating mothers whose bodies produce more milk than their own baby needs, when they have lost their own child postpartum and need to help their body transition from lactation, or simply because they are altruistically driven to support infant health through equal access to breast milk. How does milk donation work? Mothers’ Milk Bank screens all potential breast milk donors through a comprehensive but easy, facilitated process per internationally recognized guidelines. All donated milk is pooled, pasteurized and tested before distribution to hospitals and families in need. There is no cost to becoming a milk donor – nor are donors compensated. Mothers’ Milk Bank provides donors with professional support and resources during the donation process and covers all screening and shipping costs. Lactating mothers interested in becoming a donor can learn more about the Milk Meetups and Spring Donor Drive at MothersMilk.org. To get started send an email to donate@MothersMilk.org, call 1-877-375-6645, Ext. 3 or apply online. *** To schedule an interview, contact Liza Batallones at 415-766-0846 or liza@landispr.com.

Kadimastem Takes Another Step Towards Signing the Merger Agreement with Nasdaq Listed IMCC

Kadimastem

In accordance with the MOU, Kadimastem will provide IMCC a loan of up to $650,000, which will be used by IMCC to restructure its current operations for sale allow Kadimastem to enter the public platform on the NASDAQ Kadimastem Ltd. (TASE: KDST), a leading cell therapy company in the clinical development stages of breakthrough products for the treatment of ALS and diabetes, has completed another step on the way to signing a merger with the U.S. NASDAQ listed company IMCC; IM Cannabis Corp (“IMCC”), (which is also listed in Canada on the CNSX) as reported several weeks ago, thus becoming a Nasdaq-listed company. The Company signed a loan agreement with IMCC, in accordance with their MOU. The loan amounts up to about $650,000 with the goal of organizing the current IMCC operations and preparing it for sale under a contingent value right (CVR) to be distributed to IMCC record shareholders prior to the consummation of the merger with Kadimastem', hence allowing Kadimastem to enter into IMCC’s public platform on the NASDAQ without taking ownership of IMCC’s current operations. Once and subject to the completion of the merger transaction and signing of the definitive documentation, pursuant to the MOU Kadimastem shareholders are expected to hold 88% of the shares of the combined company post -merger upon which Kadimastem will no longer be trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. The MOU is in line with the Company's strategic plan, to approach the target markets of its field of activity and the US capital markets. As part of the terms of the MOU, Kadimastem undertook to have approximately $5 million in funds, including capital raised simultaneously with the completion of the transaction and the commencement of trading from existing shareholders and additional investors. Ronen Twito, Executive Chairman of the Board said, "We are moving one step further towards a merger deal with IMCC that is planned to enable us to trade on the NASDAQ. This will assist Kadimastem’s development in the US capital markets especially in view of FDA approval to start a phase IIa multi-site clinical trial in the US for the ALS product candidate, as well as our development plans for additional product candidates, and especially the diabetes product candidate. I believe that together with IMCC’s professional management we will be able to promote the transaction quickly and professionally and generate significant value to our shareholders upon completion of the transaction." Kadimastem (TASE:KDST) is a clinical stage biotechnology company, with a unique platform for cell therapy that enables the production of off-the-shelf cell-based products for the treatment of unmet medical needs. Kadimastem was founded in 2009 based on patent protected technology that was developed at Prof. Michel Revel’s laboratory at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Moving Fast: Candel’s (NASDAQ: CADL) CAN-3110 Granted FDA Fast Track Designation For Recurrent High-Grade Glioma Following Fast Track Designation For CAN-2409 In Pancreatic Cancer

Candel Therapeutics

By Jeremy Golden, Benzinga A clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company has been granted Fast Track Designation by the FDA for a first-in-class drug candidate. Focused on developing multimodal biological immunotherapies to help patients fight cancer, Candel Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CADL) was granted the designation for CAN-3110, a replication-competent herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) oncolytic viral immunotherapy candidate for patients with recurrent high-grade glioma (HGG). The Needham, Mass.-based company hopes CAN-3110 will improve overall survival in this patient population. A phase 1b clinical trial of CAN-3110 in recurrent HGG, led by E. Antonio Chiocca, MD, PhD, Head of the Department of Neurosurgery at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Professor at Harvard Medical School, is ongoing. Candel Therapeutics plans to report additional data, including the potential benefits from multiple injections of CAN-3110, from the clinical trial in the second half of 2024. Designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of medicines that can treat serious conditions, Fast Track Designation offers an investigational medicine eligibility for more frequent interactions with the FDA to discuss the candidate’s development plan. The medicine may be eligible for priority review if relevant criteria are met. “Receiving FDA Fast Track Designation for CAN-3110 reinforces the critical need to find effective treatment options for patients with recurrent HGG and further supports the potential of CAN-3110 to address the challenges that the standard of care and conventional therapies have failed to meet,” said Paul Peter Tak, MD, PhD, FMedSci, President and CEO of Candel. “A strong local and systemic anti-tumoral response and improved survival in patients with recurrent HGG was observed following a single injection of CAN-3110 in the Phase 1b trial.” Additionally, Candel and academic collaborators at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital published results from the ongoing phase 1b clinical trial in the high-impact journal Nature, demonstrating that CAN-3110 was well tolerated with no dose-limiting toxicity reported. The investigators observed a near-doubling of the expected median overall survival (mOS) after a single CAN-3110 injection, achieving a mOS of about 12 months, compared to historical reports of less than 6 to 9 months in this therapy-resistant condition. Positive HSV-1 serology was a predictor of response and was associated with improved survival; the mOS in this population reached 14 months. 50 to 80% of American adults have oral herpes (HSV-1), which causes cold sores or fever blisters near or in the mouth. Caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2, genital herpes affects one out of every six people in the U.S. aged 14 to 49. Furthermore, increased infiltrating immune cells in the tumor microenvironment and expansion of the T cell repertoire after administration were also associated with improved survival, suggesting that CAN-3110 can elicit both a local and systemic antitumoral response. “Recurrent HGG is one of the most aggressive malignancies for which there is no cure, representing a significant and urgent unmet need,” Chiocca, the study director, said. “With Fast Track Designation, I look forward to the potential of accelerating the development of CAN-3110 and the possibility of bringing this differentiated therapy to patients with recurrent high-grade glioma as we strive to improve outcomes and provide hope for patients and their families.” In December 2023, Candel Therapeutics also received Fast Track Designation for both non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pancreatic cancer, a validation from the FDA on the potential of CAN-2409, its most advanced product candidate. An investigational viral immunotherapy, CAN-2409 is designed to stimulate an individualized, systemic immune response to the patient’s specific tumor. CAN-2409 plus valacyclovir in combination with continued PD-1/PD-L1 agents is being evaluated in an ongoing, open-label phase 2 clinical trial in patients with late-stage NSCLC. Featured photo by Hush Naidoo Jade Photography on Unsplash. Candel is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing off-the-shelf multimodal biological immunotherapies that elicit an individualized, systemic anti-tumor immune response to help patients fight cancer. Candel has established two clinical stage multimodal biological immunotherapy platforms based on novel, genetically modified adenovirus and herpes simplex virus (HSV) gene constructs, respectively. CAN-2409 is the lead product candidate from the adenovirus platform and is currently in ongoing clinical trials in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (phase 2), borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (phase 2), and localized, non-metastatic prostate cancer (phase 2 and phase 3). CAN-3110 is the lead product candidate from the HSV platform and is currently in an ongoing investigator-sponsored phase 1 clinical trial in recurrent high-grade glioma (HGG). Finally, Candel’s enLIGHTEN™ Discovery Platform is a systematic, iterative HSV-based discovery platform leveraging human biology and advanced analytics to create new viral immunotherapies for solid tumors.

Cyber Startup Secures 7 Million Networks, 500 Million Connected Devices – SAM Seamless Network Protects Customers Of Verizon, Virgin Media, Orange And Bezeq

OurCrowd

By Jeremy Ruden, Benzinga A small startup headed by a former officer in Israel’s elite 8200 Military Intelligence cyber unit is silently protecting 500 million connected devices in more than seven million homes and businesses around the world. This is the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) with millions of smart devices connected by Wi-Fi. From garage doors to smartwatches, all have access to private Wi-Fi, and many were designed without any attention to security. Once hacked, they provide a gateway into home and business networks where cyber criminals can wreak havoc, stealing personal information and holding entire companies to ransom. “In the US, an average household has 22 connected devices,” says Sivan Rauscher, a former 8200 officer and Co-Founder and CEO of SAM Seamless Network, an Israeli startup at the forefront of securing millions of IoT devices on a global level. “We record an average of 16 attacks a day on every network.” https://youtu.be/x94vQ0CBQyY?si=XHO89NQBkNcWzbpF Fueled by the spread of 5G wireless technology, the growth of smart devices snowballed during the pandemic – and the numbers keep growing. By the end of 2024, experts expect there will be more than 17 billion IoT devices connected worldwide. These are not just tablets or smartphones but include everything from household heating systems to online factory machinery. Many of the smart devices will also be enhanced with artificial intelligence, capable of making autonomous decisions. With this increased connectivity come major security concerns. “When you have more connected devices in your perimeter, you’re opening more back doors into your data,” says Rauscher, a rare female CEO in the male-dominated world of cyber security. “It’s just like when you move into a larger house, there are more entry points for thieves. It’s the same with information – the more connectivity, the larger the threat of a breach.” SAM is currently raising a funding round via OurCrowd, the Jerusalem-based investment platform that allows accredited investors to access privately held startups. Prime Target While major corporations can look to giants like Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) and Check Point (NASDAQ: CHKP) for their cybersecurity needs, SAM targets small and medium-sized enterprises, which make up the vast majority of companies – including 99% of all businesses in Europe. Unlike large, security-conscious multinationals, most Wi-Fi networks in small businesses and home offices are unmanaged, unsecured and without an information officer, leaving them prey to hackers. “The fast adoption of 5G, combined with the proliferation of smart devices operating on unsupervised networks, can be catastrophic for millions of home and business users. Even with the implementation of basic security requirements on IoT devices, the threat of a silent invasion through them is very real,” says Rauscher. “SAM is the best and most cost-efficient defense to this threat and we’re proud that our solution, which is constantly adopting to the changing threat landscape, is being adopted by some of the world’s top providers.” SAM’s platform is securing networks provided by some of the largest telecommunication companies in the world. including Verizon (NYSE: VZ) in the U.S., Virgin Media in the U.K., Orange in Belgium, Bezeq in Israel and other major European providers. The company’s cloud-based software can work with any system and is deployed remotely, which means the customer doesn’t have to fiddle with complicated settings or pieces of hardware. SAM’s system works automatically through the user’s router or other onsite gateway – usually provided by an internet service provider or as an off-the-shelf product. Unrecognized Devices SAM has a special relationship with Verizon, which is both a client and an investor through its investment arm Verizon Ventures. Verizon and SAM also launched the Device ID platform, allowing users to monitor their home network for new or previously unrecognized devices. This allows customers to manage certain details of their devices, like customized naming conventions, allowing for better control of their home network and connected devices. This visibility also results in improved customer service and troubleshooting from the viewpoint of Verizon, which is truly able to “see” the connected home network. SAM has several key investors including BlackBerry, which co-led the Series B round with Verizon Ventures, Intel Capital, Night Dragon, Target Global, Ericsson, ADT Security Corporation and Blumberg Capital. OurCrowd is leading SAM’s Series C investment round, which is now funding. The company is constantly updating its security in response to new threats identified on the networks. “We employ a data-driven approach to identify emerging threats and attacks on these IoT devices, relying on data from millions of IoT devices across our networks,” says Rauscher. “We’re actively looking and researching vulnerabilities in IoT devices we believe pose a significant threat to our customers.” IoT regulation Western governments are aware of the security risks posed by IoT devices. “Malicious cyber actors may leverage your home network to gain access to personal, private, and confidential information,” the U.S. NSA warned in Best Practices for Securing Your Home Network, published in 2023. Last July, the U.S. government announced a national IoT security label that manufacturers and retailers can use to assure consumers that their smart connected IoT devices meet a certain level of cyber-safety. The EU is not making IoT security optional. This year, the European Commission imposed minimum requirements for the security of smart devices. Products not meeting the standards will be banned from the EU market. The UK has similar legislation due to take effect in April 2024. While such government programs don’t apply to IoT devices that are already in use today, they will create a more informed consumer and raise awareness among other parties in the ecosystem, such as retailers or ISPs, motivating them to take action.

Tonix Pharmaceuticals drug TNX-102 SL gets FDA ok for US Department of Defense funded trial

Tonix Pharmaceuticals

Tonix Pharmaceuticals CEO Dr. Seth Lederman joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share significant news regarding the company's latest development: the clearance of the Investigational New Drug application by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the Phase 2 investigator-initiated OASIS trial. This trial aims to evaluate the efficacy of TNX-102 SL in reducing the severity of acute stress reaction and the frequency of acute stress disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. Dr. Lederman explained that the trial is sponsored by The University of North Carolina Institute for Trauma Recovery and is supported by a substantial 3 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Defense. The primary objective of the trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of TNX-102 SL in mitigating adverse posttraumatic neuropsychiatric effects among patients who present to the emergency department following a motor vehicle collision. The trial is expected to enroll approximately 180 trauma survivors across various emergency department study sites throughout the United States. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either TNX-102 SL 5.6 mg or a placebo for a two-week course. Notably, there is currently a lack of medication available at or near the point-of-care to effectively address the needs of patients suffering from traumatic events and support their long-term health. This development underscores Tonix Pharmaceuticals' commitment to addressing unmet medical needs in the field of trauma recovery and psychiatric disorders. With the initiation of the OASIS trial, the company aims to contribute to the advancement of treatment options for individuals experiencing acute stress reactions and related neuropsychiatric sequelae following traumatic events.
