These are the descriptions of the presenting companies:
BioLight (TASE: BOLT) directly invests in, manages and commercializes biomedical innovations by focusing on groups, or 'clusters,' of technologies that explore different aspects of the same medical condition. BioLight's two current clusters include ophthalmology, through its 100% owned subsidiary XL Vision; and cancer diagnostics via its 29% ownership of Micromedic (TASE: MCTC).
DelMar Pharmaceuticals (OTC: DMPI) was founded in 2010 to develop and commercialize proven cancer therapies in new orphan drug indications where patients are failing modern targeted or biologic treatments. The Company's lead asset, VAL-083, is currently undergoing clinical trials in the U.S. as a potential treatment for refractory glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and aggressive form of brain cancer. VAL-083 benefits from extensive clinical research sponsored by the U.S. National Cancer Institute, and is currently approved for the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia and lung cancer in China. Published pre-clinical and clinical data suggest that VAL-083 may be active against a range of tumor types via a novel mechanism of action.
Organovo (NYSE: ONVO) designs and creates functional human tissues using a proprietary three-dimensional bioprinting technology. The Company focuses on developing a range of human tissues and disease models for medical research and therapeutic applications. The Company's NovoGen™ three-dimensional bioprinting technology employs a specialized automated platform that works across all tissue and cell types. Organovo's bioprinter was named one of the "Best Inventions of 2010" by TIME Magazine and Organovo has been recognized as one of the most innovative companies of 2012 by MIT's Technology Review. Organovo is helping pharmaceutical partners develop never before available human biological disease models in three dimensions that hold the potential to transform the business of therapeutic drug discovery and development. Organovo is also developing direct tissue therapies where precise structure and architecture may deliver the best clinical outcomes. Organovo leads the way in solving complex medical research problems and building the future of medicine.
Bone Biologics was founded by University of California professors in collaboration with an Osaka University professor and a USC Surgeon in 2004. Bone Biologics is a privately-held company with proprietary, patented technology that has been clinically proven in non-human primate models to facilitate bone growth. The company is currently focused on bone regeneration in spinal fusion using its recombinant human protein, known as UCB-1 (or Nell-1). UCB-1 is an osteoinductive orthobiologic: a recombinant protein that provides control over bone regeneration. This patent protected technology has been exclusively licensed to Bone Biologics from UCLA.
Advanced Bifurcation Systems (ABS) has developed a novel technology to enable effective stenting of coronary arteries at their branch points (bifurcations). Every year millions of patients around the world with heart disease present to doctors who find they are faced with either a PCI or CABG procedure. A quarter of those requiring stenting will have bifurcation lesions, meaning a build-up of plaque that is blocking or about to block blood flow to the heart at a place where the blood vessel divides in two. ABS was founded in late 2008 with the vision to facilitate the stenting of bifurcation disease so that its percutaneous treatment becomes the standard of care at bifurcated lesions.
