BRTX’s ThermoStem®: A New Weapon In The Fight Against Metabolic Syndrome

BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.

By Julian Richard, Benzinga Metabolism is the chemical process whereby the body produces energy from food. By breaking down carbohydrates and fats into sugars, the cells access fuel that can be used or stored via the liver or body fat. A metabolic disorder can occur when the body's chemical reactions become abnormal. This results in metabolic syndrome, where there is an excess or scarcity of health-preserving essential substances. Metabolic syndrome includes diseases such as obesity (increased fat deposits in the body) and increased glucose in the blood. These conditions increase the risk of comorbidities, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Obesity has become a global epidemic. For example, up to 40% of adults in the USA are obese, and the rates continue to climb across multiple populations. By 2030, over one billion individuals worldwide are predicted to be obese, with 1 in 7 men and 1 in 5 women living with the condition. Obesity is associated with an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, sleep apnea, and some cancers. Obesity is estimated to increase U.S. healthcare spending by $170 billion annually, so it is no surprise that companies like Novo Nordisk (NYSE: NVO), Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), Eli Lilly (NYSE: LLY) and Teva (NYSE: TEVA) are working on the epidemic as well. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that in 2022 over 37 million Americans had diabetes, with up to 95% having type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes has been considered a disease in adults. However, it is becoming more common in children, adolescents and younger adults. Stem Cells - Harnessing The Most Potent Cell In The Body BioRestorative Therapies Inc (NASDAQ: BRTX) focuses on innovative “home-grown” solutions to treat metabolic syndrome. It was founded by medical doctors, scientists, and world-renowned stem-cell researchers committed to developing stem-cell therapies to address unmet needs in patients with common yet serious diseases. Pioneering research led by Biorestorative Therapies on newly identified human adult brown fat stem cells has led to the development of ThermoStem®, a possibly revolutionary “off the shelf” allogeneic cell-based therapeutic. Stem cells are a unique kind of therapeutic cell. They are some of the most potent cells in the body, which can develop into many other more specialized and organ or tissue-specific cells. Brown fat stem cells are taken from a healthy donor and grown in the laboratory before being transplanted into the patient's body to generate new brown fat tissue or initiate metabolic homeostasis. Brown fat regulates body temperature by breaking down body fat and glucose in the blood. Brown fat produces energy and in so doing burns calories. Individuals with detectable brown fat are at a reduced risk of being diagnosed with cardiovascular and metabolic issues, such as type 2 diabetes, congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure. The ThermoStem® program harnesses the body’s ability to create new brown fat tissue from human brown adipose-derived stem cells. The novelty of the technology was acknowledged by the European Patent Office’s Notice of Allowance issued on the 6th of February, 2023. A bright future could await BioRestorative Therapies and the metabolic syndrome market in general. This is due to the heightened demand for personalized once-off treatments for the increasing number of individuals with lifestyle diseases and metabolic syndrome. There is also some intense clinical interest in this space. In 2017, the global metabolic disorder therapeutics market was valued at $49.65 billion and was projected to experience an impressive CAGR of 7.56% from 2019 to 2025. North America is the leading region driving this growth. The increasing prevalence of obesity and diabetes, high healthcare spending, and rising awareness about metabolic disorders continue to propel regional market growth even further. The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to experience the most rapid CAGR of 8.27% due to its fast-paced economic growth. The APAC market is driven by shifting lifestyles and greater disposable income levels, leading to increased obesity and diabetes.

BioRestorative Therapies was founded by scientists and researchers committed to developing stem cell therapies to address unmet needs in patients with highly prevalent conditions.Our advances in stem cell biology and delivery protocols harbor great promise in conditioning our bodies’ own regenerative potential to treat major diseases more effectively than current interventions.Today, BioRestorative is actively developing programs that aim to dramatically increase quality of care for both (i) chronic back pain caused by disc degeneration, as well as (ii) metabolic disorders including obesity and diabetes.

MinZheng Wahlers and Jadyn Diaz Named Winners of Jersey Mike’s Naismith High School Basketball Courage Award

Atlanta Tipoff Club

MinZheng “MZ” Wahlers of Golden View Classical Academy in Golden, Colo., and Jadyn Diaz of Ukiah High School in Ukiah, Calif., have been named the winners of the fourth annual Jersey Mike’s Naismith High School Basketball Courage Award. The Atlanta Tipoff Club, which administers the Naismith Awards, determined Wahlers and Diaz stood out above the rest after evaluating hundreds of nominations nationwide. The Naismith Awards are the most prestigious national honors in high school and college basketball. To watch a video of each winner, go to https://youtu.be/c4-Mkp0US1o (Jadyn Diaz) and https://youtu.be/ZpoP-n7qoTk (MZ Wahlers). Diaz has dealt with a rare bone disease throughout her life that causes her bones to grow unintendedly, resulting in multiple surgeries. The operations cut back bones that grow larger than her body can handle. Her most recent surgery included the removal of two inches of a rib that punctured her lung. She recovered quicker than expected and rejoined the girls’ basketball team in a limited capacity. To add to her misfortune, she lost her mom to cancer a couple of years ago. Wahlers has also faced continuous adversity in his life. Born with a Cleft lip and palate in China, he was immediately abandoned at a police station, where doctors conducted emergency surgery to close his upper palate. After the operation, he was without a home. He was eventually fostered by a local family and began to focus on basketball. “Beyond the basketball court, MZ and Jadyn have demonstrated incredible courage throughout their lives and have become tremendous role models in their communities,” said Eric Oberman, executive director of the Atlanta Tipoff Club. “This award evaluates an individual as a well-rounded person, not just for their on-court talent, and both MZ and Jadyn exemplify what it means to win the Jersey Mike’s Naismith Courage Award.” The Jersey Mike’s Naismith High School Basketball Courage Award recognizes a high school basketball player who has consistently gone above and beyond throughout the basketball season and has demonstrated courage in their approach to their team, school, and community. Jersey Mike’s will make a $2,000 donation to each player’s high school basketball program in their honor and reward each winner with an additional $2,000 per student. Winners will be recognized at their school and through a video tribute shared across the Naismith Trophy and Jersey Mike’s websites and social media accounts. “We’ve been thrilled to help tell the stories of so many amazing and courageous student-athletes across the country,” said Rich Hope, Chief Marketing Officer of Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc. “We want to congratulate Jadyn and MZ for winning the 2023 Jersey Mike’s Naismith High School Basketball Courage Awards. Their stories inspire all of us.” For more information about the winners, visit www.astudentabove.com. ABOUT THE ATLANTA TIPOFF CLUB Founded during the 1956-57 season, the Atlanta Tipoff Club is committed to promoting the game of basketball and recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of those who make the game so exciting. The Atlanta Tipoff Club administers the Naismith Awards, the most prestigious national honors in all of college and high school basketball. Named in honor of Dr. James Naismith, inventor of the game of basketball, the family of Naismith Awards annually recognizes the most outstanding men’s and women’s college and high school basketball players and coaches. Other Naismith Awards are presented to the men’s and women’s college basketball defensive players of the year, as well as lifetime achievement awards to basketball officials and outstanding contributors to the game. UCLA’s Lew Alcindor received the first Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy in 1969, while the late Anne Donovan (Old Dominion) was the inaugural women’s recipient in 1983. Corporate partners of the Naismith Awards include Jersey Mike’s and Werner Ladder.

NO DOGS LEFT BEHIND OPENS FIRST USA SANCTUARY IN CANTON, NEW YORK

No Dogs Left Behind

No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB), the international non-profit rescue, today opened its first sanctuary in the United States in Canton, New York. Until now, the leader in global emergency response fighting for global animal welfare laws has been headquartered at the NDLB Canada Safehouse in Toronto, Ontario. To accommodate its expanding needs, the foundation has taken over a sprawling 16-acre property that will now be home-base for the charity. The sanctuary features a training and boarding facility for the NDLB rescues, and in the coming months, will be building an in-house grooming center and a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic. “Opening a USA sanctuary has always been a part of our growth plan,” states NDLB founder and president Jeffrey Beri. “With recent changes to the CDC dog import rules allowing dogs from 113 countries to fly into the USA, and the CFIA closure to dog imports into Canada last September, we realized the time to establish roots in the United States is now.” Dogs from the USA, as well as survivors from around the globe, will find a place to rehabilitate at the NDLB Sanctuary. “This location will give us the space needed to transport so many more survivors from East Asia on a more consistent basis which will, in turn, open up space at our East Asia sanctuaries to save more lives,” shares Beri. “We will save, vaccinate and titer test the dogs to ensure they are free of rabies before transport to the USA,” explains Beri. As per the CDC rules, all dogs will travel into the designated United States airports for clearance and vetting, then to the Canton facility where they will receive additional medical treatment and rehabilitation. The new NDLB sanctuary will allow the foundation to be turnkey from the start, having the space needed to bring dogs from Canada to Canton. Immediate funding is still needed to prepare the property with proper enclosures, updates and fencing. NDLB has differentiated itself as leaders in emergency response, rescue, and evacuation, making a global impact in the lives of dogs around the world. “We go where no one is willing nor able to go, the most dangerous places in the world, areas hard-hit by natural disasters and war-infested combat zones,” explains Beri. The non-profit’s mission remains the same, to fight for an end to the dog meat trade, bring about global animal welfare laws and to save lives in East Asia as well as beyond borders including but not limited to the endangered Galgos in Spain, the dogs of war in Ukraine and earthquake survivors from Turkey. NDLB is also working to add team members in the areas of adoption, foster, kennel attendants, cleaning crew, and accounting. “It takes a village to save lives and we are pleased to be back in the USA to help save lives here and beyond borders,” adds Beri. Volunteers are needed too! NDLB welcomes all to apply to volunteer by submitting an application at https://nodogsleftbehind.com/volunteer/. To make a donation today, please visit: https://bit.ly/NDLBCantonNY For further information, please visit www.nodogsleftbehind.com. To set up an interview with Jeffrey Beri, receive photos and/or visit the new No Dogs Left Behind sanctuary please contact Sydney Masters at 212-987-6804 / sydney@rcourihaycpr.com. About No Dogs Left Behind: No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) operates sanctuaries in East Asia, fighting on the frontlines to rescue dogs from the illegal dogmeat trade. No Dogs Left Behind works hands-on with local activists through emergency response, pulling dogs directly from slaughterhouses, dogmeat trucks, wet markets and traffickers. The foundation’s mission extends beyond borders, advocating for the creation and enforcement of animal welfare laws, and raising awareness for a cruelty-free, sustainable world in which no animal is violated, exploited, tortured or slaughtered for commercial goods or profit. With nearly 500 survivors in its care, No Dogs Left Behind operates sanctuaries in Dayi and Gongyi in East Asia and now, in Canton, NY USA.

The company has rolled out additional reforms in terms of its female-friendly policies to ensure everyone operates in a supportive environment. A step towards establishing positive change has been made, as the company is introducing the Fine Flourish Policy, which includes provisions for Menstrual, Menopause, and Fertility Treatment leaves, across all its locations. All female personnel - both full-time and probationary - are eligible to take advantage of the generous Fine Flourish policy. Employees are granted up to 12 days of leave annually in the event of any illness, symptoms, or complications related to menopause, menstruation, or fertility treatment. Moreover, flexible work arrangements can be made to ensure their comfort and convenience. All these provisions can be availed without a medical certificate and are granted separately from vacations or other leave policies.

For mothers to be, FHH provides up to 16 weeks of fully paid maternity leave, which is far more than the recommendations of the International Labour Organization.
