SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2017) - SpeeDx Pty. Ltd. today announced that the authors of the review, Antimicrobial-resistant sexually transmitted infections: gonorrhoea and Mycoplasma genitalium, published in Nature Reviews Urology http://www.nature.com/nrurol/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nrurol.2016.268.html, recommended that appropriate M. genitalium diagnostic testing become available on a routine basis in clinical practice and should ideally be supplemented with molecular detection for antibiotic resistance. Currently, SpeeDx has the only commercially available test capable of simultaneously detecting the sexually transmitted infection (STI) M. genitalium and antibiotic resistance status. SpeeDx ResistancePlus™ MG test is CE marked for sale in Europe and TGA approved for sale in Australia. SpeeDx plans to seek a de novo clearance for the test with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration this year. "M. genitalium infections have become exceedingly difficult to treat, owing to the increasing levels of antimicrobial resistance or AMR," said review co-author Jorgen S. Jensen, MD, PhD, DMSc of the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark. "AMR testing as well as diagnostic tests for M. genitalium need to become routinely available if we are to substantially improve patient management of this STI and potential superbug." "As this review points out, there is a great medical need to personalised treatment of M. genitalium.  The ResistancePlus™ MG test allows clinicians to make informed treatment decisions and to combat the spread of antibiotic resistance of this STI," said Colin Denver, CEO of SpeeDx. "We look forward to increasing the availability of this assay in clinical laboratories throughout Europe and Australia. In the US, we have entered into discussions with leading academic medical centers to conduct clinical trials of the ResistancePlus™ MG test and plan to seek a de novo clearance from the US FDA later this year." About M. genitalium M. genitalium is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can cause symptoms such as urethritis, cervicitis, endometritis and pelvic inflammatory disease. In recent studies, it has been found to have a higher prevalence than Gonorrhea. Like Gonorrhea, M. genitalium is also evolving into a so-called STI superbug that is becoming resistant to many antibiotic treatments causing exceedingly difficult to treat infections and threatening global public health. Macrolide antibiotics, specifically azithromycin, are the first-line treatment for the rapidly growing problem of M. genitalium STIs, but resistance to these antibiotics has increased up to 40% in several countries.1-3 Due to this growing antibiotic resistance problem, in 2016 the European Guideline on M. genitalium Infections recommended complementing the molecular detection of M. genitalium with an assay capable of detecting macrolide resistance-associated mutations.4 Currently, there is not a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cleared molecular diagnostic test for the detection of M. genitalium in the USA. The SpeeDx ResistancePlus™ MG assay is CE marked for sale in Europe and TGA approved for sale in Australia. The test provides valuable detection and antibiotic resistance information to clinicians in a rapid time. Timely detection of antibiotic resistant infections enables better treatment of the disease for patients, lessens the potential for spreading among vulnerable populations and combats antibiotic resistance. About SpeeDx Based in Sydney, Australia and founded in 2009, SpeeDx is a privately owned company specializing in innovative multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) solutions for clinical diagnostics.

FILE - In this Dec. 4, 2013, file photo, U.S. Airways CEO Doug Parker responds to a reporters question during an interview at AMR headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Support from labor unions was critical when Doug Parker's US Airways forced a merger with American, but now the CEO of the world's biggest airline is under fire from unions unhappy about pay that lags rates at rival Delta. Leaders of the pilots' union say they have lost confidence in the ability of Parker and senior executives to lead the airline. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez, File) NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pilots at American Airlines Group Inc denounced the carrier's chief executive officer, Doug Parker, on Tuesday, citing his decision last week to skip a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump. The pilots' union, the Allied Pilots Association (APA), issued a symbolic vote of "no-confidence" in Parker's leadership abilities. It also cited lagging pay increases compared to pilots at other carriers and "questionable economic and strategic decisions." American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said in a statement that the union and the airline share the same goal and that they "have a solid foundation in place upon which to build." "Therefore, further public dialogue serves no purpose," Miller said. American had said at the time of the White House meeting that Parker's decision not to meet with Trump and other airline executives was due to a previously scheduled leadership conference. At a picture-taking session on Thursday just ahead of the meeting, Trump called the U.S. air traffic control system out of date and criticized its cost. After the meeting, Airports Council International-North America President and CEO Kevin Burke said airport officials had urged Trump to lift the cap on airport passenger fees to address airport infrastructure needs. [nL1N1FU1D6] "We've watched Mr. Parker and his team being out-managed by our competitors' executives and have lost trust in their ability to lead and protect the interests of American Airlines employees and shareholders," the APA said in a statement. "His decision to disrespectfully not accept an invitation to meet with the President of the United States has left the APA leadership and many of our pilots amazed at the lack of judgment and leadership exhibited," APA President Dan Carey said in the statement. The APA represents some 15,000 pilots at American, the world's largest airline, according to the group's website. While employees at Delta Air Lines, Inc and United Continental Holdings, Inc have seen significant pay raises in recent months, management at American has declined to enter pay negotiations with its pilots and other labor groups, straining an already tense relationship between unions and the company's top brass, APA spokesman Dennis Tajer said. "We want a change. If it's Doug Parker changing the way he's (running) the airline and operating it, so be it," Tajer said in a telephone interview. "The end state has to be an airline that is running better, that is providing better service to our customers and better service to our employees."

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 27, 2017) - Pala Investments Limited ("Pala") is pleased to announce that on February 24, 2017, it reached an agreement with Nevada Copper Corp. ("NCU") regarding the amendment of its existing convertible loan facility to NCU (the "Convertible Loan Facility") and the advance of a further US$5,000,000 (less an arrangement fee and expenses) (the "Advance") under the Convertible Loan Facility. The amendments extended the maturity of the Convertible Loan Facility from January 10, 2018 to December 31, 2018. The Advance, and all interest accrued thereon, is convertible at a conversion price of the lower of C$0.90 and 115% of the lowest subscription price of Common Shares issued by the Borrower in connection with any equity financing completed within six months of February 24, 2017. The existing loans under the Convertible Loan Facility, and all interest accrued thereon, remain convertible at a price of C$0.69. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Advance and the interest accrued thereon, as well as interest accrued on the existing loans after December 31, 2017 will not be convertible until the receipt of shareholder approval of such conversion by NCU. Upon the closing of the funding of the Advance, Pala will also be issued warrants exercisable for 2,500,000 NCU Shares (the "New Warrants") pursuant to a warrant agreement with a 3-year term, exercisable to acquire NCU Shares at an exercise price of C$0.97 per share. Funding of the Advance is subject to customary conditions precedent including receipt of approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. After funding of the Advance and assuming an exchange rate of C$1.3104 for each US$1.00 (the noon rate as of February 24, 2017, as published by the Bank of Canada), the Advance would be convertible into a total of 7,280,000 NCU Shares (upon obtaining shareholder approval) and the New Warrants will be exercisable for an additional 2,500,000 NCU Shares, together representing an increase of approximately 2.04% in Pala's securityholding percentage in respect of the NCU Shares (based on 88,168,125 NCU Shares currently outstanding). Pala currently holds 40,289,141 NCU Shares, $29,549,377.38 of existing loans under the Convertible Loan Facility and warrants to purchase an additional 2,500,000 NCU Shares (the "Existing Warrants"). Subject to the assumptions set forth above, following the conversion of all amounts under the Convertible Loan Facility and the exercise in full of the Existing Warrants, Pala would hold a total of 98,907,262 NCU Shares, representing approximately 67.38% of the then issued and outstanding NCU Shares (based on 88,168,125 NCU Shares currently outstanding). After funding of the Advance and subject to the assumptions set forth above, following the conversion of all amounts outstanding under the Convertible Loan Facility and the exercise in full of the Existing Warrants and the New Warrants, Pala would hold a total of 108,687,262 NCU Shares, representing approximately 69.42% of the then issued and outstanding NCU Shares (based on 88,168,125 NCU Shares currently outstanding).
