AI Tool Predicts Colon Cancer Survivorship and Response to Treatment

MarketJar

Harvard Medical School and National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan have designed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to improve colorectal cancer prognosis and treatment options. The new technique uses microscopic images of tumor samples to reliably predict colorectal tumor aggressiveness. It predicts survival with and without disease recurrence and the optimum treatment. The new approach may help clinicians recommend more intense follow-ups, aggressive treatments, or clinical trials of newer drugs for individuals with poor prognosis. In areas with limited access to advanced pathology and tumor genetic sequencing, the strategy may be useful. This new AI tool goes beyond mimicking or optimizing human expertise and can see visual patterns on microscope images that the naked eye cannot. The algorithm was trained with patients' ages, sexes, cancer stages, and results using records from almost 2,000 colorectal cancer patients. The tumor's genomic, epigenetic, protein, and metabolic profiles were inputted. The model pathologist was then presented tumor samples and instructed to look for visual markers of tumor types, genetic mutations, epigenetic alterations, disease progression, and patient survival. The researchers showed the model novel pictures of tumor samples from multiple patients to test its "real-world" performance. To evaluate its efficacy, they matched its results to real patients and other clinical data. After diagnosis, survival time and cancer-free years were accurately predicted. The technology also projected how a patient's tumor would respond to certain medications based on genetic variations that made the cancer more or less likely to form or spread. The technique outperformed pathologists and cutting-edge AI algorithms. The researchers believe this approach could assist guide treatment decisions in cases when resources are short or genetic sequencing of tumor tissue is not possible. It could help clinicians and patients navigate colorectal cancer, which kills 1 million people globally each year. When it comes to combating colon cancer, early detection is key. It’s also important that cancer detection is simple, accessible, and affordable. Up until recently, a colonoscopy was the most accurate way to detect colon cancer. However, over one-third of eligible individuals refuse to undergo a colonoscopy, which is why non-invasive alternatives are needed. Mainz Biomed ( NASDAQ:MYNZ ) is the company behind ColoAlert, a highly accurate and easy-to-use at-home screening test for colorectal cancer (CRC). This product is the first DNA-based screening test for colorectal cancer and is already approved in the European Union. Revolutionary At-Home Cancer Screening Test Moves Toward FDA Approval Mainz Biomed 's flagship product ColoAlert, which is based on PCR technology, detects more cases of colorectal cancer than other stool tests and enables for early diagnosis. The product is already commercially available in some EU nations through a network of top independent laboratories, corporate health programs, and direct sales and the company is working towards US approval. The company has already successfully completed its pre-submission process, and IRB approval for its pivotal FDA study, ReconAAsense. That means that FDA approval could potentially be in the future and if that happens, it could send this company into a new dimension. ColoAlert will be tested in a pivotal FDA-registration trial 'ReconAAsense' to acquire commercial approval in the United States. Once licensed in the US, Mainz Biomed ’s goal is to build scalable distribution across the country through a collaborative partner program with regional and national laboratory service providers. Mainz Biomed has joined Eurofins GeLaMed to its network of lab partners delivering PCR test kit processing of ColoAlert. Eurofins GeLaMed is part of Eurofins Scientific, a multinational laboratory business with over 61,000 people in 61 countries and 450 million tests per year. It has four facilities in Germany. Eurofins GeLaMed offers advanced diagnostics in human genetics, medical microbiology, laboratory medicine, and molecular diagnostics in eleven medical departments. GeLaMed's over 500 staff process more than 15,000 orders each day and offer more than 2,000 analytical methods from their laboratory medicine and microbiological portfolios under medical professionals. Eurofins Business Line Director Clinical Diagnostics DACH Marcus Cholewa said he was excited about Mainz Biomed and Eurofins GeLaMed's collaboration because Eurofins always provides excellent customer service, quality, advanced analytical solutions, and the most comprehensive testing methods. He also said that Eurofins has a history of providing innovative and high-value diagnostic testing solutions, and that by working, they might help identify colorectal cancer (CRC) and give patients individualized information to manage their health. Under the agreement, Eurofins GeLaMed will offer ColoAlert at its testing sites and Mainz Biomed will help with physician and patient education programs for March Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, emphasizing the importance of early screening for CRC detection and prevention.

LITTLE SAINTS INTRODUCES ST. MEZCAL, THEIR FIRST NON-ALCOHOLIC SPIRIT, INTO THEIR PORTFOLIO OF PLANT MAGIC BEVERAGES

Little Saints

Little Saints, the only mocktail brand to combine Reishi mushrooms, CBD and terpenes in their ingredients –a formula expertly crafted by of a food scientist, environmentalist and a shaman– today expands their non-alcoholic offerings with the release of St. Mezcal. Known for its rich history and rituals of connection, Mezcal is the fastest growing spirit in the US and the least represented in the non-alcoholic space, making St. Mezcal the first functional alternative on the market. Little Saints is believed to be the first spirit producer (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) using a pure palo santo extract –sourced sustainably from Peru– as an ingredient in its St. Mezcal formula, which will be sold at a suggested retail price of $49.99 in a beautifully-designed, Mezcal-inspired 750ml glass bottle. Little Saints St. Mezcal ingredient profile is highly intentional with a complex blend of flavors and functional, sacred plants for a multi-sensory and mood-enhancing experience. The sophisticated, first-of-its-kind blend is highlighted by palo santo (a surprising blend of wood and fennel), ginger, cardamom and vanilla along with an added burn (from capsicum peppers) that hits your throat even when mixed into a blended beverage. It also delivers the rich smell profile associated with certain alcoholic spirits, like Mezcal. Inspired by, but not trying to replicate, the traditional alcoholic Mezcal spirit, St. Mezcal serves as an idyllic, delicious beverage option meant to be consumed neat or as a non-alcoholic replacement for mocktails and cocktail recipes. Little Saints St. Mezcal is joining the menus of today’s buzziest hottest bar and hotel menus including but not limited to Patent Pending (NYC), Clay (NYC), Saint Tuesday (NYC), La Noxe (NYC), Howard’s Bar and Club (Austin), Perla’s (Austin), Liz Lambert ’s Hotel Saint Vincent (New Orleans) and Austin Proper Hotel (Austin). Little Saints sources its palo santo extract, a fragrant wood known for its energy-cleansing and spiritual properties, directly from a forest in Northern Peru. Creating the pure palo santo extract was an extensive process the Little Saints team perfected alongside its Peruvian partners, over a year-long period to optimize the smell and taste of the extract, in addition to procuring a USDA timber permit to import directly from the Peruvian suppliers. The palo santo used to make the extract in St. Mezcal is harvested sustainably from dead and fallen trees, and a percentage of the proceeds of St. Mezcal goes back to the community in Peru that harvests it. Lion’s mane, an adaptogenic mushroom, has been added in 100mg/serving, a dosage adequate to boost brain power and creativity by stimulating the growth of neurons in the brain–the very thing alcohol negatively impacts. Out of all adaptogenic mushrooms, lion’s mane was included as a segue to better social dialogue and more meaningful interactions. The dosage is stated intentionally as it’s commonplace for brands to include the ingredient without dosage information to mask insufficient amounts for noticeable impact. According to NPR in 2023, the non-alcoholic beverage category is a $400m category in the United States, growing at 20% year or year. In comparison, the US alcoholic drinks market is a $284b market growing at a flat 7% per year. Consumers are seeking savvy, high quality choices. “ Most non-alcoholic spirits don’t hold up by themselves. Some of them are okay in cocktails, but I would never drink them on their own. St. Mezcal is one of two N/A spirits that I would ever drink neat or on the rocks, and I would prefer St. Mezcal out of those two. It is zero proof but it has a kick like a thunder. I want to highlight that it has a flavor balance and that it gets you in a nice mood. It does something to you… It’s not just like I’m not drinking and I’m good for the night. It will put you in a good mood. ” — Nikola Nikoletic, Head Bartender at Patent Pending NYC Little Saints was founded by environmental lawyer turned plant-based foods entrepreneur, Megan Klein, and shaped by a female food scientist with a Masters in adaptogens (plants that help the body adapt to stress). As a woman-led company, Little Saints sets out to elevate emotional wellbeing and to encourage connectivity with nature. Launched at music festivals from day one, the brand embodies play in all its forms. It is the mocktail and spirit to drink for a consequence-free mood lift. “St. Mezcal takes the non-alcoholic spirit game up a notch, adding a mood-enhancing ingredient to traditional mocktail menus. I wanted to pair something sensory and spiritual like palo santo with something highly efficacious like lion’s mane. I use both in my everyday life, and I see the benefits - the palo santo helps me clear negative energy and feel creative, and the lion’s mane activates my brain and gives me a buzz that helps me feel creative, focused and playful.” —  Megan Klein, Founder and CEO of Little Saints. Little Saints' bold flavored non-alcoholic drinks are designed to provide an uplifting sensory experience through thoughtfully combined plant magic ingredients. With the philosophy that play is wellness, their mission is to inspire indulgence in art, movement and connection with their community via the canned ready-to-drink plant magic mocktails and new St. Mezcal spirit. Through sourcing, partnerships and distribution purchasing decisions, Little Saints promotes environmental sustainability and conscious capitalism. With integrity and an open mind, Little Saints serves the community by donating more than 1% of its revenue to organizations fostering equity in relation to plant medicine and mental health. Little Saints St. Mezcal is the brand’s first entry point into the spirit world, but certainly not the last as the brand looks to expand functional, delicious offerings in the non-alcohol mocktail and spirit space. About Little Saints Little Saints is a brand of plant magic beverages inspired by our deep reverence for plants and equally deep commitment to play. Working with functional ingredients sourced from sacred plants—plants with special spiritual and curative properties—Little Saints creates non alcoholic, sugar-free plant magic mocktails and spirits. With flavors inspired by classic cocktails —like Paloma, Spicy Margarita, Ginger Mule, Negroni Spritz, and Mimosa—the ready-to-drink mocktails are sugar free and formulated with Little Saints proprietary blend of Reishi mushroom, CBD and botanical terpenes, and the new St. Mezcal spirit continues their mission of providing consumable functional benefits without the alcohol but with the joy. This plant magic "stack" was created in collaboration with Little Saints' adaptogen-expert food scientist and sacred-plant-medicine shaman to inspire positive emotions and a lifted spirit. The brand debuted in 2021, launching first at outdoor festivals throughout Michigan where Megan served mocktails from the back of a mint-green trailer to attendees intrigued by the unique option of an uplifting, natural, clean, and alcohol-free alternative. Since then, the brand has gone national and is already an industry favorite, staking its claim within the non-alcoholic beverage space which continues to grow exponentially faster than the alcoholic space–a signal of a growing cultural shift. Little Saints is at the forefront of a growing movement of an intentional wellness focused lifestyle that eschews drinking alcohol in favor of healthier options.

Lily, The First Non-Alcoholic Single Canned Beverage Featuring the Rare & Ancient Adaptogen, Egyptian Water Lily to Launch This Spring

DrinkLily

The first in its category, Lily, a functional non-alcoholic beverage, was created by two native New Yorkers committed to finding a guilt-free way to soothe their anxiety. Over the course of two years they developed a formula designed to gently unwind that tension, leaving consumers with a mood boosting feeling. Every can of Lily harnesses the power of the ancient adaptogen providing tranquility from the Egyptian Water Lily, which was cherished by pharaohs for thousands of years. This flower is packed with rare antioxidants known for sparking creativity and aiding in restoring energy levels, sleep quality, soothing anxiety, stress relief, blood circulation & detoxification. With only 32 calories, 3 grams of sugar, 40% of your daily recommended antioxidants, and no artificial ingredients, each can is something you can feel good about. The drink’s bright and refreshing taste has a base of organic Italian blood orange juice sourced from the lush volcanic soil surrounding Mt. Etna in Sicily. Also in the brew is organic black tea leaves and invigorating Korean Red Ginseng root. The ginseng, a powerful adaptogen, provides an abundance of essential B vitamins (B1, B6, B12). The black and gold tea leaves are sourced from the fertile Yunnan province of China, and deliver a nutty flavor to go along with mind stabilizing L-theanine. Lily’s co-founders and childhood friends Bradley Morgan and Isaac Lliguin, grew up in Manhattan and frequently struggled with coping from the daily stressors of their high pressure jobs. “I was working from 7AM to midnight as the lead producer for a daily TV show on VICE in Brooklyn. After years of commuting between boroughs and working late hours, the stress really started to affect my health. The responsibilities for creating a new television show every day felt endless: writing, producing, editing, while managing high profile talent and staff. And the more weed I smoked, the less it seemed to help with the stress. With the guidance of holistic medicine professionals, I began my search for natural solutions,” says co-founder Bradley Morgan. In the summer of 2020, Bradley was introduced to the Egyptian Water Lily in a tiny Chinatown tea shop. After experiencing the blissful and anxiety reducing qualities of the flower, the path to creating Lily had begun. With other flavors currently in development, Lily is excited to continue their journey of sharing the benefits of this special flower with everyone who knows what it feels like to be a bit overwhelmed with modern day life. Available in 4-pack ($20), 8-pack ($40) and 24-pack ($120) options, the slim and sleek designed 11.5oz cans are available nationwide online and at select health and wellness stores throughout the tri-state area. To learn more about Lily and retailers, please follow along on Instagram @drinklily or visit www.drinklily.com.
