This Company Reports Moving Toward FDA Approval To Provide Pain-Free Diabetes Monitoring

Benzinga

Caused predominantly by genetic predisposition, immune disorders and other factors, such as unhealthy diet and exercise habits, diabetes is one of the most common lifelong chronic diseases in the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are nearly 450 million cases of diabetes worldwide, and the number in the U.S. could reach 40 million by 2030 and more than 60 million by 2060. Many believe the numbers could be more significant because large numbers of the population might be undiagnosed and at high risk. In recent years, with the rise of global diabetes expected to reach nearly 700 million by 2035, a growing number of patients are suffering from pain and infections caused by the invasive and frequent nature of using mainstream commercial glucose meters. The most common cutaneous complications are wear-related erythema, itching, and induration, but more severe cases, typically related to bacteria infection, continue to grow as well ( source 1 and 2 ). This has led to the need for noninvasive blood glucose monitoring technology, which could relieve numerous issues that many diabetes patients face. Noninvasive blood glucose monitoring refers to the detection of human blood glucose without causing damage to human tissues. Many noninvasive blood glucose detection methods can be divided into the optical, microwave and electrochemical processes. Medical imaging technologies are gaining global relevance in the medical community to assist clinicians in the diagnosis and guiding therapeutic treatment of patients. The big plus is that it's noninvasive and offers high-resolution results. The most common medical imaging technologies are computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography. Noninvasive imaging techniques are used in almost every medical field as a diagnostic tool and to monitor pathological progression or the efficacy of treatments. Several imaging tools are available to provide structural and functional information about tissue and organ physiology. New hybrid devices and multimodal imaging offer opportunities for research and use in clinics. Companies like General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) Healthcare, Lantheus Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: LNTH), Varex Imaging Corp. (NASDAQ: VREX) and OSI Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS) have invested heavily in medical imaging products, but most are better known for other medical offerings or other industries altogether. Know Labs Inc. (OTCQB: KNWN), an emerging developer in noninvasive medical diagnostics, focuses on developing its proprietary spectroscopic technologies using the electromagnetic spectrum. The goal is to accurately identify and measure a wide range of organic and inorganic materials, molecules and compositions of matter. Know Labs’ technology uses spectroscopy to direct electromagnetic energy through a substance or material to capture a unique molecular signature. It refers to its technology as Bio-RFID™, which can be integrated into various wearable, mobile or bench-top devices. The company’s patented and patent-pending technology makes it possible to effectively identify and monitor analyses that could only previously be performed by invasive, expensive and time-consuming lab-based tests. The first application of its Bio-RFID technology will reportedly be in a product marketed as a noninvasive glucose monitor, giving the user real-time information on blood glucose levels. Know Labs’ leadership says it's confident it will be the first company to bring an FDA-cleared noninvasive glucose monitoring device to market. Know Labs is conducting a 200-person internal clinical trial of Bio-RFID, which will help the company refine its algorithm and demonstrate Bio-RFID’s accuracy in a large population.. Previous internal tests demonstrated Bio-RFID has an accuracy on par or better than currently available solutions, which is an important step towards FDA submission.

Slashing Methane Emissions 30% By 2030 Could Be Key To Achieving Net Zero Targets — Here’s What AgTech Companies Are Doing To Help

Pond Technologies Holdings Inc.

The latest estimates put annual global methane emissions at 580 million tonnes (Mts) per year, creating atmospheric concentrations that are 2½ times denser than preindustrial levels. About 25% of that methane comes from the agricultural sector alone — mostly from gassy cows whose burps contain methane. With an estimated 1.4 billion cows worldwide and each cow belching approximately 220 pounds of methane each year, those burps add up. President Biden has even supported a bill that would tackle this issue, to the tune of $20 billion, due to its impact on the environment. That’s why companies like Pond Technologies Holdings Inc. ( OTCQB: PNDHF ) are exploring cost-effective, scalable ways to cut agricultural methane emissions and help nations around the world meet their Global Methane Pledge. Nations Need To Cut Methane Emissions If They Hope To Hit Net Zero Goals As part of the Global Methane Pledge launched at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) last year, 111 countries collectively responsible for 45% of methane emissions committed to reduce those emissions to 30% below 2020 levels by 2030. Methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses in Earth’s atmosphere — it has over 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide and accounts for as much as 30% of the global temperature increase scientists expect to see in the next 20 years. Because of this enhanced warming effect, cutting 170 Mts, 30% of 2020 levels, in methane emissions would be the equivalent of scrubbing 4.7 billion to 6.1 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere per year. If the global temperature increase surpasses 1.5 C above its pre industrial average, scientists warn of the following changes in our climate could occur: Extreme heat events — like the recent record-breaking heat wave that swept Europe this summer, sparking wildfires in four countries and contributing to over 1,000 deaths — that used to happen once a decade or less would happen more than four times per decade. The risk of severe flooding will more than double for 73% of the world’s population. The total forest area at risk of forest fires would nearly double in the United States alone and fires could become about 37% more frequent. An average of more than 114 million people each month will be exposed to extreme drought conditions that could ruin food crops and make already-scarce drinking water even harder to come by. Curbing Agricultural Emissions Might Hinge On Discovering An Anti-Methane Diet For Livestock Methane in agriculture is produced primarily by livestock — especially cows — as their digestive process produces methane as a byproduct that is released when they burp. That means tackling methane levels for farmers means devising a way to make cows burp less. The approach that’s made the most progress is changing cows’ diet. Royal DSM (OTCQX: KDSKF), for example, has already shown some success with this approach using a feed additive called Bovaer that’s been shown to reduce methane from burping by around 30%. Algae May Hold Another Key To Slashing Methane Emissions In April, Pond Technologies partnered with Cross River Infrastructure Partners LLC and Livalta/AB Agri, a subsidiary of Associated British Foods plc (LSE: ABF) to identify algae strains that could reduce methane emissions when added to livestock feed. The research partnership could be a promising one as a separate study of red macroalgae (seaweed) found that it could cut methane emissions by up to 80% when added to cattle feed. However, scaling the production of seaweed would require turning large swaths of shorelines into seaweed farms, which could end up having its own environmental impacts on ocean and coastal ecosystems. That’s why Pond is partnering with these companies to explore microalgae strains that could offer the same methane-busting benefits as seaweed. Pond has already deployed what it reports is an innovative, scalable algae grow system that allows producers to grow microalgae in tanks where the conditions are optimized for algae growth. The tanks also help cut CO2 emissions themselves. Because algae use CO2 to grow, the proprietary Pond tanks can take the raw stack gas from power plants, factories and other high-emission facilities and convert it into clean, breathable air. The goal, then, is to identify microalgae strains that can be grown in these CO2-scrubbing platforms so that the companies can harvest them and turn them into feed additives. That way, each batch is pulling double duty: scrubbing emissions as it grows in the tank and curbing emissions again after it’s fed to livestock. Featured photo by Jan Koetsier on Pexels About Pond Technologies Located in Markham, Ontario, Pond has developed a proprietary system that can profitably transform CO2 into valuable products. Its Pond Carbon business focuses on absorbing greenhouse gas emissions, transforming these into food, feed, and nutraceutical ingredients. Pond recently added a Biotech division focused on the growth of unique strains of microalgae to be used as a reproductive medium for the expression of human antibodies and proteins.
