LANGENFELD, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The German patch and thin-film maker announces the availability of a ropivacaine transdermal patch formulation for the treatment of neuropathic pain. tesa has developed a matrix patch containing the local anesthetic ropivacaine (3%). The patch is applied directly to the affected area and should deliver long-lasting pain relief for at least 24 hours. The targeted primary indication is post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). However, additional indications such as other chronic neuralgias, painful non-healing leg ulcers, burn pain, diabetic neuropathy and chronic lower back pain could also be addressed. Existing market products require a higher dose and can only be worn for 12 hours, resulting in discontinuous treatment. tesa’s product provides a lower dose, which reduces the risk of systemic toxicity and makes application for 24 hours or longer possible. Further patient benefits include gentle patch adhesion, trauma-free removal and no detachment problems. The contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) has filed a PCT application for the product that is intended to protect its innovative formulation approach for the transdermal patch. tesa is endeavoring to find a product partner in order to continue the development of the patch by accomplishing a proof of concept study and executing a phase II study. Interested pharmaceutical companies are invited to meet tesa’s representatives at CPHI North America in Philadelphia (May 16-18) or at BIO International in San Diego (June 19-22). tesa Labtec undertakes the development and manufacture of film-shaped dosage forms (CDMO services) such as transdermal and topical patches as well as oral, buccal or sublingual films. Business activities comprise formulation development, scale-up and manufacture of clinical trial supplies or finished products under full cGMP conditions. tesa relies on its proprietary technologies, Transfilm®, Rapidfilm® and Mucofilm®, for this. tesa Labtec is a wholly owned subsidiary of tesa SE, a member of the Beiersdorf group of companies, and represents the pharmaceutical business in a truly global family of companies.

Bonify is a Licensed Producer, pursuant to the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations in Canada with the capability to grow multiple strains of cannabis in its state of the art 320,000 square foot facility. It is anticipated that this MOU will lead to definitive service and supply agreements to be negotiated in the near future. Under the terms of the MOU, raw cannabis plant material will be shipped to ARA - Avanti Rx Analytics Inc. ("ARA"), a company with oil extraction capability with whom the Company has an agreement to test, formulate, manufacture and sell products under the current and/or future medical and recreational cannabis regulations, through subsidiary ADC Biomedical Corp ("BIO"), which is jointly owned by the Algae Dynamics and ARA. The agreements with Bonify and ARA will help ensure a supply source for cannabis oils to be provided to the University of Waterloo and the University of Western Ontario, pursuant to the Sponsored Research Agreements ADC has in place with the two universities, as previously announced. In addition, the agreements put in place a near-term pathway to revenues by arranging product for export and/or sale to other Licensed Producers. Under the terms of the MOU, Bonify receives a right of first refusal option on cannabis oils processed from plant material supplied to BIO by Bonify. Paul Ramsay, Chairman and President of Algae Dynamics, said, "This MOU represents another important piece of the puzzle to move forward with our strategy of developing unique health products and pharmaceuticals utilizing cannabis, hemp and algae oils. Securing supply of raw material is extremely important as the market for cannabis-related products develops, and that, along with the ability to extract oils, puts us in a strong position going forward." As reported earlier, Algae Dynamics is continuing to seek opportunities to partner with or take ownership in existing Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) licensed producers to allow for access to the marketplace. In addition, the Company intends to pursue its own license under the ACMPR in the near future. Bonify is a Canadian-owned Licensed Producer and leading provider of medical cannabis.

Dr. Farah, who serves as the Chief Medical Officer for the Phoenix Health Center in Hagerstown, prior NE Regional Medical Director for United Healthcare Clinical Services and Director ASAM explains, "Based on ASAM's definition of addiction, about half of substance abuse is due to genetic factors. This study shows that analyzing genetics with lifestyle and behavioral variables in a predictive algorithm can accurately stratify patient risk." Dr. Ashley Brenton, Associate Director of R&D for Proove states, "This validation study builds on the peer-reviewed evidence supporting Proove Opioid Risk® and its components as an optimal model to predict opioid abuse risk." Study author, Gregory A. Smith, M.D, former Director of Pain Management at Harbor UCLA, explains, "Having used this technology for 6 years, this data provides further evidence that clinicians can use Proove Opioid Risk® for ruling out patients unlikely to exhibit aberrant behaviors, and identifying high-risk patients for alternative therapies." Proove Opioid Risk® is a proprietary precision medicine profile consisting of an algorithm which analyzes 17 variables (11 genetic and 6 lifestyle and behavioral factors) individually supported by over 30 peer-reviewed publications. Peer-reviewed clinical studies show that the Proove Opioid Risk® profile accurately identifies patient risk for opioid abuse.

— Market Highlights The North America microarray market has been evaluated as slowly growing market and expected to continue in the similar way in the near future. A microarray is a multiplex lab-on-a-chip. It is a 2D array on a solid substrate, usually a glass slide or silicon thin-film cell, that assays large amounts of biological material using high-throughput screening miniaturized, multiplexed and parallel processing and detection methods. Globally the Microarray Market is dominated by DNA microarrays. The protein microarray is currently the fastest growing market. The use of peptide and carbohydrate microarrays is expanding. Tissue and cell microarrays are in their infancy stage and are developing slowly because of many complications in the process development. Microarray is one of the methods which was used for the diagnostic purpose in cancer research. But commonly used types like DNA microarray, antibody array have not been proven to be effective methods in case of the disease like cancer. So in order to deal with the limitations of other types, tissue microarray was developed. Tissue microarray is an effective diagnostic tool for cancer diagnosis. The more and more research is going on to make the tissue microarray more accurate and efficient. As the prevalence of cancer is spreading, the growth in the tissue microarray method is expected in the future. North America Microarray Market Players: • ABCAM • Asterand Bioscience • IHC World LLC • Novus Biologicals LLC (Acquired By BIO-TECHNE) • Origene Technologies Inc • Pantomics, Inc • Protein Biotechnologies Inc • US Biomax, Inc. • US Bioupton Int • Vitrovivo Biotech, LLC On the other hand, as the technique is in its infancy stage, lots of mistakes and errors occur. The readings are not accurate many times. As the results are not reliable, it creates a hindrance in the growth of the tissue microarray method. Besides this, tissue microarrays are not recommended for certain types of studies. In certain tumors such as glioblastoma, there is such marked heterogeneity within tumors that this feature may not be adequately captured in tissue microarray studies. In addition, microarrays are also not very useful to study rare or focal events, such as number of immune cells in tumors. These are some of the factors that cause hindrance to the growth of the Tissue microarray market.
