L. Ron Hubbard's East Coast Golden Age Theatre opens rehearsal to the public for the first time at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center in downtown

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 16, 2018 / — On Tuesday August 14, the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center, opened and supported by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, hosted the L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre in their final rehearsals of their upcoming presentation of L. Ron Hubbard’s pulp fiction story The Dangerous Dimension. The rehearsal served as an exclusive behind the scenes preview for Boy Scout Troop 313 before the Theater’s live performance on August 18 in the Scientology Information Center, located on the corner of Cleveland Street and Fort Harrison Ave.

This is the first time the Theatre allowed a group to see their rehearsal. The Boy Scouts saw how the theater polishes each final performance using costumes and sound effects.

“These actors practice every week to create a stellar performance that will bring people in the community together,” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the Center. “By opening their rehearsals to the Boy Scouts they accomplish what the Center was established for: bringing different community groups together. They’re doing as humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote, ‘A community that pulls together can make a better society for all.”

The Dangerous Dimension by L. Ron Hubbard is based on Dr. Henry Mudge, who discovers the mathematical formula “Equation C”, which outlines a negative dimension. Using this equation, Dr. Mudge is instantly transported to any location in the solar system by simply thinking of it.

PetVivo Holdings, Inc. Moves Manufacturing Facility, Creates Research and Development Laboratory.

(All Press Releases Will Be Available for Viewing on Facebook or the Web at )


(OTCMARKETS: PETV), PetVivo Holdings, Inc. ( an emerging biomedical device company, is pleased to announce the moving of its manufacturing facility and the creation of a research and development lab.

In an effort to expand manufacturing and create a research and development facility, Petvivo, Inc. moved from Elite Solutions in Rochester, Minnesota to the home of CytoMedical Design Group LLC (cmdg) in St. Paul, Minnesota. The location has far better access for Petvivo employees and eliminates the costs of hotels and mileage which the company has been absorbing sending and supporting staff from Minneapolis for weeks at a time to work in Rochester.

“We estimate that our cost of manufacturing will be reduced substantially. It is also time to address our plan to continue improving our product and initiate our research and development plans. Assistance for both manufacturing and research will be available from staff members of the cmdg group. Cmdg has additional clean rooms and square footage for our use “commented Wes Hayne, CEO of Petvivo Holdings, Inc.

The move was performed in one week, coordinated with three different moving companies. Each company specializing in specific equipment, with different degrees of sensitivity. The move is now complete, and production is expected to resume within the next three weeks. The new surroundings and extra space will help in building the efficiencies of the manufacturing process.

About PetVivo Holdings, Inc.
PetVivo Holdings Inc. (OTCPINK: PETV) is an emerging biomedical device company focused on the licensing and commercialization of innovative medical devices for pets and pet therapeutics. PetVivo is leveraging investments made in the human medical device industry to commercialize therapeutics for pets in a capital and time efficient way. A key component of this strategy is the accelerated timeline to revenues for veterinary medical devices, which enter the market much earlier than the more stringently regulated pharmaceuticals.
PetVivo's strategy is to commercialize proprietary products from human medical device companies specifically for the companion animal market. The company’s product pipeline includes seventeen animal and human therapeutics. A portfolio of twenty patents protects the company’s products, production processes and biomaterials. PetVivo’s lead product, a veterinarian-administered joint injection for the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs, is scheduled for launch later this year.

Marrone Bio Innovations Submits Novel Bioherbicide to the EPA for Regulatory Approval

Novel mode of action for resistant weeds such as palmer amaranth

Marrone Bio Innovations (NASDAQ:MBII)

We are excited about what we have seen so far in 014 development. We have more work to determine appropriate doses on key target weeds, water volume, adjuvans and further expansion of the spectrum.”

— Amit Vasavada, Senior Vice President of R&D and Chief Technology Officer

DAVIS, CA, USA, August 14, 2018 / — Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBII) (MBI), a leading provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products for the agriculture, turf and ornamental and water treatment markets, has submitted the registration package for its new bioherbicide, MBI-014, to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Weeds are a major source of yield losses for most cropping systems. According to various market research reports, herbicides account for 40% of the $50 billion global pesticide market. Of the approximately $7.2 billion chemical pesticides sold in the U.S. each year, nearly $4 billion are chemical herbicides.

Grower surveys repeatedly show that weed control is the number one cost of organic food production since chemical herbicides are not allowed. In organic growing systems, herbicide options are extremely limited, consisting almost entirely of non-selective soaps and acids that typically require repeat applications, lack residual activity, only affect plant areas into which they come in direct contact, and sometimes cost more than hand weeding. According to the Organic Trade Association, organic food sales reached $45 billion in the U.S. and is the fastest growing segment of food, growing an average of 9.1% annually since 2008.

MBI-014 is a water dispersible microbial herbicide made from a new species of heat-killed bacteria, Burkholderia rinojensis (strain A396). This new herbicide has a novel mode of action per research conducted at the USDA Agricultural Research Service. While additional development work and field trials need to be conducted, MBI-014 could prove to be a valuable new tool for weed control when used in conjunction with other herbicides in a grower’s integrated pest management (IPM) program.

MBI-014 demonstrates post-emergent herbicidal activity across a range of weeds in laboratory and field tests. It shows evidence of uptake and moderate movement through different plant tissues. MBI-014 is most effective on some of the most serious weeds, some of which have developed resistance to multiple herbicide classes, such as palmer amaranth, waterhemp and others in the pigweed family (Amaranthacae).

“We are excited about what we have seen so far in the development of MBI-014,” said Amit Vasavada, Senior Vice President of R&D and Chief Technology Officer at Marrone Bio Innovations. “We do have more work to do in order to determine such things as appropriate doses on key target weeds, water volume required, adjuvant package needed and further expansion of the spectrum of targeted weeds.”

HealthTech Healx raise $10m to accelerate drug discovery, prior to speaking at Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases Conference

Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases 2018

Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases 2018

HealthTech Healx, who raised $10m to advance drug discovery & treatments for rare diseases, set to speak at 8th Annual Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases Conference

LONDON, WATERLOO, UNITED KINGDOM, August 14, 2018 / — Healx, a HealthTech company based in Cambridge who are also set to speak at this year’s Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases conference in October in London, have announced a $10m (£7.6m) Series A funding round. The company's primary focuses include using AI to develop treatments for rare diseases, cutting down the time it takes to get drugs into market, finding new uses for existing drugs and their application in combination therapies.

Patients with rare diseases cannot continue to be overlooked because of costly therapies and have the same rights to treatment as any other patient. Dr David Brown, one of the company's founders, stated “The traditional drug discovery process takes 10 to 15 years at a cost of $2 billion per new drug and with a failure rate of 95% – it’s broken, it’s slow, it’s high failure, and it’s not economic for rare diseases. Healx is showing that we can massively transform the rate of discovery of new medicines, reducing timelines and costs.”*

The orphan drugs market has seen a huge growth in interest from pharmaceutical companies and biotechs, as a growing need for effective, long-term treatment for rare disease patients becomes a priority. Companies like Healx are paving the way to success by repurposing existing drugs, meaning fewer complex trials, less expenditure, and a quicker timeline.

This year's 8th annual Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases conference, taking place 17 – 18 October in London, will be hosting Healx's Head of Business Development Michale Bouskila-Chubb, who is set to present on "Accelerating drug discovery for rare diseases using AI: The Healx Model".

Michale will be focusing on fragile X case study: the case for AI-driven drug repurposing vs conventional drug repurposing, setting up an online tool to share data: how patient groups can accelerate data access and data quality for their rare diseases, and translating repurposed drugs to pharma: how we can build viable commercial cases for the pharmaceutical industry.

At this year’s two-day conference, delegates will be able to hear from Healx and many more industry leaders, including Sobi, MHR AstraZeneca, Genetic Alliance and more.

2018 Conference Highlights:

• Discuss the pricing and reimbursement of orphan drugs
• Understand the challenges of patient recruitment and patient-centric research
• Hear the MHRA’s perspective on benefit-risk assessment in rare diseases
• Explore the clinical development of orphan drugs for rare diseases
• Gain insight into potential synergies between regulators, non-profits and pharmaceutical companies

The conference’s last early bird saving of £200 expires on August 31st and delegates are urged to book soon to join an unrivalled gathering of international expert speakers and industry professionals for 5+ hours of pure networking.
