Jeanmarie Guenot and Amphivena Therapeutics Work to Cure AML

 

Jeanmarie Guenot and Amphivena Therapeutics are currently working on a groundbreaking study to cure for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, or AML. Guenot is a Ph.D. with over twenty years experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Amphivena is a new company that was able to raise fourteen million dollars for its start. The drug currently going through the FDA approved trials is AMV-564.

 

AML is the most common form of adult leukaemia and can move through a person quickly. While it is considered extremely rare, the cure could lead to understanding other cancers. One of the ways to contract AML is the treatment to combat other cancers. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause the cancer by mutating the chromosomes in certain leukemic cells.

 

AMV-564 is an antibody that that recruits T-cells to eliminate the cancer cells that express CD33, which is a receptor that common in AML. The receptor is also common to other blood tumors. Such an antigen type treatment is considered promising. The treatment itself is part of a long pursued path to find a cure for this fast acting cancer.

 

Jeanmarie Guenot is the President and CEO of Amphivena. She also is part of the group of patent holders for three of the three main components of AMV-564. Prior to Amphivena, she built and ran SKS Ocular, a company that focused on glaucoma, macular degeneration, and ocular inflammation. She earned her doctorate at the University of California, San Francisco and an MBA from the prestigious Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. She has primarily worked in the field of cancer research, focusing on physical and medicinal chemistry.

 

Amphivena Therapeutics is a developer of treatments for diseases, not just cancer. They are developing drugs that utilize a patient’s immune system to fight the diseases themselves. They are based out of San Francisco after being founded in 2012. The company itself is extremely small and is still privately owned.

Bernardo Chua: Teaching The World About The Benefits Of The Ganoderma Mushroom

When Bernado Chua was a child his Chinese grandparents taught him about a mushroom called ganoderma and the many health benefits it offered. Chua was impressed and decided he would tell as many people as possible about ganoderma. When he was hired by the Philippines based multi-level marketing company Gano Excel, he got the opportunity to do just that.

The company sold a wide range of ganoderma infused consumable products including coffees, teas and capsules. Chua quickly mastered the multi-level marketing concept and within a few years helped to expand their operations to Hong Kong, Canada and the U.S.

According to The Street, a few years later Berndao Chua moved to California and became Gano Excel U.S.A.’s president. He quickly developed a team of hundreds of independent marketing agents that marketed the products all across North America. And they were a huge hit with consumers. Bernardo Chua founded his own multi-level marketing company in 2008.

The company was called ORGANO GOLD™. He also sold his ganoderma infused products under the Coffee Connoisseur brand name. Chua also sponsored research into the ganoderma mushroom and worked with the best organic farmers to ensure he had the best ganoderma products possible.

Educating people about ganoderma has long been Chua’s goal. So he made a special effort to make people aware of all the things ganoderma mushrooms could do. The brand grew rapidly as consumer couldn’t seem to get enough of the products and the marketing agents made a great profit.

The healthy bioactive coffees, teas and other products the company offered are ideal for people looking to live a healthier lifestyle. In 2015 Chua decided to change the company’s name to ORGANO™, but still marketed nutritious ganoderma infused consumables at very affordable prices.

Today Philippines native Bernardo Chua is celebrated as one of the Pacific Rim’s most successful businessmen. His company has won ‘Direct Sales Company of the Year‘ five times and has also won People’s Choice and National Shoppers Choice awards.

Chua himself has received numerous accolades. To him the most meaningful was the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry he won in 2014.

Where The Internet Of Things Factors In
IoT is a budding technology, but it isn’t hard to see where the future of this technology might take us. “Smart” devices around our homes are going to make us rethink the way we do just about everything. We already have televisions and mobile devices with embedded systems, but the real change will happen when we see this technology applied to things such as refrigerators and stovetops. When that happens a true revolution will kick off and change the way we think about everything we have ever known.

The Fight Against Aging
Beyond the Internet of Things, Hope is a strong believer in the fight against aging. Particularly, he has made himself a major contributor to the Strategies for Engineering Negligible Senescence Institute. The SENS Institute wants to change the way people view aging.

Mikhail Blagosklonny: A Pre-Eminent Physician-Scientist

As one of the leading causes of death globally, cancer has attracted significant interests especially from scientists. The primary objective of these scientists is to find the cancer elusive treatment. One such scientist, who has made significant contributions towards tackling cancer, is Mikhail Blagosklonny: a specialist in cancer biology and treatment therapies. With his strong academic and research background, Mikhail Blagosklonny has made significant contributions in the fight against cancer, some of which have the potential of revolutionizing cancer treatment and aging.

Research Work

Blagosklonny is also a renowned oncology research scientist who has authored over 170 articles on the subject. In addition, he has co-authored several book chapters and research reviews on cellular and molecular biology of cancer cells including their cycle, apoptosis and autophagy on tandfonline.com. His widely cited works also focus on molecular theory of aging. Towards this end, he proposed that target of rapamycin (TOR) signaling plays a significant role in prolonging cell life by inhibiting apoptosis, delaying autophagy and promoting cellular protein synthesis. These processes are vital in slowing down the aging process and hence delaying the onset of age-related diseases. Blagosklonny also proposed that since over-expression of TOR signaling inhibited autophagy leading to cancerous tumors, its regulation can help in cancer treatment. He believes understating these processes is vital in developing effective anti-cancer and anti-aging drugs.

Career and Education History

Mikhail Blagosklonny is also a scholar whose work extends beyond research. He is currently serving as Roswell Park Cancer Institute’s oncology professor following his appointment in 2009. His experience played a key role in his appointment as he had worked at Ordway Research Institute as research scientist.

Martin Lustgarten Teaches Wise Investment Banking Protocol

Building capital is the universal mantra of business; economic growth depends on solid financial stability. Investment banking is the root element and driving force that provides the necessary capital for companies and other institutions. This type of banking takes on liability from a policy fashioned by an insurance company, in such a way that the investment is protected, an underwriter. It is a specific banking service designed for business, not exactly individuals; it is completely different than a saving or checking account. The complexities of investment banking can be significant, in that one truly needs an expert in the field. Knowledge of mergers, brokers, traders, and acquisitions are critical to the success of any investment banking venture. The investment banker acts for the company or entity in the process of obtaining securities. Moreover, an investment banker may be employed for advice only, since this type of banker is deeply involved in the arena of investments, they can make common sense predictions on success or failures. Essentially, a talented and creditable investment banker is the fundamental component of investing wisely.
