PharmaDrug (OTC: LMLLF) (CSE: PHRX) CEO Dan Cohen: “Advancing Drug Pipeline Addressing Billion Dollar Markets”
PharmaDrug (OTC: LMLLF) (CSE: PHRX) CEO Dan Cohen, a featured presenter at Wall Street Reporter’s NEXT SUPER STOCK investors conference is advancing a pipeline of natural based drugs, addressing multi-billion dollar market opportunities in cancers, anti-viral and glaucoma indications. LMLLF now has four drug candidates advancing towards clinical trials, with key milestones in the weeks ahead.

LMLLF’s flagship platform is PD-001 – a reformulated and patented version of cepharanthine, with lab data demonstrating potential therapies for a number of anti-cancer and anti-viral indications. Cephrantine is a natural based drug already approved in Japan, with a 70 year history of use. Cepharanthine has shown in studies to both stop the spread and kill cancer cells, and reduce resistance to chemotherapy.
LMLLF’s PD-001 is a reformulation of the traditional treatment in pill form used in Japan, but with 10X the bioavailability. LMLLF sees its PD-001 as a platform for potentially treating a wider array of cancer indications.

LMLLF is now advancing studies for PD-001 for treating esophageal, and prostate cancers. LMLLF has just received FDA Orphan Drug Designation for PD-001 for esophageal cancer a $1.5 billion market opportunity. Orphan Drug Designation allows for potentially fast track FDA approval, lower development costs and increased market protection. LMLLF is also advancing PD-001 for prostate cancer, filing a provisional patent for cepharanthine combined with chemo for prostate cancer.

LMLLF is also developing a treatment for glaucoma, based on a re-formulation of DMT (N-Dimethyltryptamine) to reduce intraocular pressure. Tryptamines, including DMT, have been shown in clinical studies to reduce intraocular pressure. LMLLF is collaborating with the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation, a world class leader in development of novel drug delivery technologies to optimize DMT formulation with a controlled release device. LMLLF’s clinical research has developed two potential drug formulations, which have have tested well for low toxicity, and show promising potency and efficacy, and expects to initiate FDA clinical trials in coming months. In his interview, CEO Dan Cophen also shares that LMLLF’s pipeline assets have significant upside potential as biotech valuations recover from current cyclical lows.

March 9 - LMLLF reports positive interim findings for combination of Cepharanthine and frontline chemotherapy for IND-enabling prostate cancer study.The study demonstrated improved tumor growth inhibition by 73% compared to cabazitaxel-alone.

Feb 23 - LMLLF receives encouraging potency data for candidate DMT-analogue molecules designed to treat primary open angle glaucoma. LMLLF successfully completed a head-to-head potency comparator study of its two undisclosed DMT-analogue candidates for the treatment of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). LMLLF intends to use the current results in combination with several planned upcoming in vitro studies to elect its final development candidate. Future in vivo efficacy testing in an accepted model of POAG is currently being planned with the goal of providing all necessary support to file an investigative new drug (IND) application with the FDA to conduct clinical studies.

Feb 1 - LMLLF files a US provisional patent application for Cepharanthine to Treat Prostate Cancer. The provisional patent application details the novel synergistic combination of cepharanthine (PD-001) and cabazitaxel on prostate cancer growth inhibition and also sets forth claims related to the use of PD-001, cabazitaxel and/or other taxane family members used in combination to treat primary, metastatic and chemotherapy-resistant prostate cancer.

DeepMarkit (OTC: MKTDF) (TSX.V: MKT) CEO Ranjeet Sundher: “Monetizing Carbon Credits on the Blockchain is Nearly a Trillion Dollar Opportunity”
DeepMarkit (OTC: MKTDF) (TSX.V: MKT), a featured presenter at Wall Street Reporter’s NEXT SUPER STOCK investors conference, is monetizing the nearly trillion dollar market for carbon credits onto the blockchain, with its Mint platform. The global traded market value of carbon dioxide permits grew by 164% to a record $851 billion in 2021, according to analysts at Refinitiv. This is viewed by institutional investors and hedge funds as the next major asset class. The carbon offset market is expected to surge ten-fold this decade as more enterprises pursue having ‘net-zero’ carbon emissions.

Via its platform, DeepMarkit (OTC: MKTDF) is capitalizing on this trend by helping carbon credit holders monetize their credits by minting them into tradeable NFTs on the blockchain, for liquid sale in the global market on 24/7 basis. MKTDF expects to officially launch in April and commence the onboarding of clients at around the same time. With two LOIs already signed, the company is optimistic that it will be able to mint a minimum of 5 million carbon credits in the second quarter of 2022. MKTDF generates revenues by charging a 10% minting fee to carbon credit holders, and also captures a perpetual royalty stream of up to 5% every time each NFTs is sold in the secondary market. In his interview with Wall Street Reporter, MKTDF CEO Ranjeet Sundher shared the key milestones to watch for in the coming weeks as new clients start joining the platform and as the first NFTs are minted. Sundher says that MKTDF’s early-mover advantage in the rapidly expanding carbon credit NFT space, combined with its significant pipeline of clients and projects, creates the potential for significant revenue growth and valuation upside in coming months.

As of today, 10 states are either already contribution profit positive or on track to achieve that milestone in 2022. Overall, we expect DraftKings to be contribution profit positive for FY '22.
