Marizyme, Inc.'s MB102 Product To Initially Focus On Pediatric Stroke Market -- Spotlight Growth

Sacramento, CA, March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Spotlight Growth has published new content on Marizyme, Inc. ("Marizyme" or the "Company") (OTC Pink: MRZM), a biotechnology company focused on its clinically-tested and patented use of protease therapeutic platform called Krillase. Clinical testing and research have shown Krillase to be a treatment for acute ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, deep-vein thrombosis, wound/burn care, and more. Krillase is classified as a Class III medical device in Europe for the treatment of chronic wounds. 

The financial article and video provide an overview of Marizyme, the Krillase platform, latest news, and further analysis. 

International Alliance of Pediatric Stroke: Stroke a “Top Ten” Leading Cause of Death in Children 

The truth is that stroke can impact people of all ages and backgrounds. Commonly misconstrued as an illness that primarily impacts the elderly, stroke can occur in young adults, children, infants, and even prior to birth. In fact, there are two key categories of pediatric stroke: perinatal and childhood. 

Perinatal refers to the time period between the last 18 weeks of gestation through the first thirty days of life. Childhood stroke occurs in youth aged 1 month to 18 years. 

In fact, according to the International Alliance of Pediatric Stroke (IAPS), stroke is a “top ten” leading cause of death in children. Furthermore, 60% of children that do survive a stroke “will have permanent neurological deficits, most commonly hemiparesis or hemiplegia,” according to the IAPS. 

Furthermore, the National Stroke Association says that stroke occurs in roughly 1 out of 4,000 live births and the risk of stroke until age 18 is almost 11 out of 100,000 per year. 

Despite pediatric stroke’s prevalence and high medical need, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments for the condition. 

MRZM: Initial MB102 Treatment Application To Focus On Pediatric Stroke

Marizyme currently has a Krillase-derived treatment pipeline consisting of four different applications. The company’s MB102 product is specifically for the treatment of ischemic stroke using Krillase. Management sees a major opportunity in initially focusing MB102’s development and testing on the pediatric stroke market, due to its high medical need and lack of currently available treatments. 

On March 15, 2019, Marizyme announced that it had received feedback from the FDA from a Pre-IND application for a Type B meeting request. The FDA’s feedback provided strong guidance and expectations for Marizyme, which will help the company develop proper procedures and game plan for the MB102 product. Here are the key points Marizyme provided from the FDA’s feedback:

  • Both intra-arterial and intravenous routes of administration need to be tested pre-clinically prior to initiation of clinical studies.
  • Safety pharmacology testing (CNS, respiratory and cardiovascular) can be incorporated into the pivotal GLP toxicity studies instead of being run as separate studies.
  • No safety genotoxicity studies are required prior to initiating clinical studies.
  • Marizyme will need to fully characterize the raw material for viral contamination and enzymatic profile.

    Tesla Berlin Factory Risks Months-Long Legal Delay Over Wildlife

    Elon Musk's plan to build an electric car plant in Germany has run into legal trouble after a court said clearing a forest near Berlin for a new Tesla Inc. factory must stop immediately while it considers a challenge by environmentalists. The Berlin-Brandenburg higher administrative court issued an injunction against further construction after overturning a lower court ruling against environmental group Gruene Liga Brandenburg. The group is seeking to prevent Tesla from clearing more of the surrounding forest and the court said it will make a final decision on the complaint in the coming days.

    What do the world’s most successful people do when it’s time to retire?

    When Thomas Schreier Jr. graduated from the University of Notre Dame more than three decades ago, he never envisioned that in his late 50s he'd be teaching a class there called Designing an Inspired Life and regularly walking the South Bend, Ind., campus as the founding director of the university's Inspired Leadership Initiative. The initiative, now in its second year, consists of 15 accomplished individuals who have wrapped up two or three decades in successful careers and are eager to devote an academic year to studies at Notre Dame. Notre Dame's joins similar programs at prominent institutions pioneering this concept: the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, operated in partnership with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and Harvard's Advanced Leadership Initiative, a yearlong program for corporate executives and professionals interested in applying their skills to social problems.

    The market plunged on Feb. 3 as Chinese markets reopened to a health crisis that paralyzed most of the world's second-largest economy. To cushion the blow, China's government has pumped cash into the financial system, trimmed money-market rates and offered targeted tax cuts. Beijing will also allow local governments to sell another 848 billion yuan ($121 billion) of debt before March, as authorities seek to offset the economic shock of the coronavirus.

Jurors in federal court in Cape Girardeau awarded $265 million Saturday to a Missouri farmer who blamed the herbicide for destroying his peach orchards. The companies now face more than 140 lawsuits over allegations that dicamba wreaked havoc across the Midwestern U.S. when it drifted onto crops that weren't engineered to resist it.

    “Really explosive downside protection is really the only risk mitigation that's able to move the needle for people, because it's the only risk mitigation that doesn't cost you as you are waiting for it to happen,” Spitznagel said. In other words, his fund provides crash insurance so his clients can take on more “systemic risk” with their other investments. Spitznagel, a former trader, is a protégé of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the author of the 2007 bestseller, “The Black Swan,” which is a metaphor used to describe unpredictable, highly disruptive events — the kind that could blow up markets.

Bezos purchased the Warner Estate, originally designed in the 1930s for the late Warner Bros.  president Jack Warner, from music mogul David Geffen, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the transaction.
