P&G’s Pioneering “Omics” Research Advances Beauty and Grooming Innovation

Cutting-edge “Omics” tools to solve molecular puzzles in skin and hair biology, and unlock new pathways for better skin and hair care

SINGAPORE, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ –Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) is at the forefront of the “Omics” revolution — by applying a new systems biology approach — with early successes in applying this breakthrough field of science to the complex “systems” of beauty.  At the recent World Congress of Dermatology 2011, P&G showcased some of the ways it is using “Omics” tools to drive an advanced and holistic understanding of beauty and grooming needs for consumers around the world: men and women, and head to toe — face, body, hair and scalp.

Using gene chips to analyze the activity of thousands of genes in a single experiment, P&G Beauty & Grooming scientists have identified a number of pathways that have become primary research programs for new beauty and grooming products.

The results of advanced ‘Omics’ technology are utilized by Dr Rosemarie Osborne, P&G Beauty & Grooming scientist, who is working on the next stage in product development — the use of in vitro models to analyze the impact of ingredients on skin and hair.

The New Science of “Omics”

While genomics has dominated the beauty and grooming discussion in recent years, new advances in genome sequencing and other “Omics” tools are enabling biologists to shift their attention from studying individual parts within a particular biological system to “mapping” the entire system — from the genome to the proteome to the metabolome.

  • Genomics studies gene activity or “expression” and describes how genes function, interact with one another and respond to environmental stimuli;
  • Proteomics studies proteins and the way they change as a result of gene activity;
  • Metabolomics studies how changes in genes and proteins impact biochemical processes within the cell.

There are more than 20,000 genes, as many as a million proteins and thousands of metabolites underlying our fundamental skin and hair processes. Where once scientists could only measure one gene or protein at a time, the latest “Omics” tools now allow us to monitor 9.4 million gene changes and hundreds of protein expression changes or metabolites in a single experiment.

“The secret to dramatically accelerating data and insights in skin and hair biology lies in bringing these tools and techniques together.  The “Omics” revolution significantly changes the way we analyze, think about and experience beauty and grooming.  It changes the rules of the game and gives us an unrivalled insight into the molecular pathways associated with common concerns in skin and hair biology,” said Dr Jay Tiesman, Principal Scientist, Global Biotechnology Division, P&G.

Dr Tiesman and other leading scientists on the P&G team including Dr Rosemarie Osborne, Dr John Oblong and Dr Ray Grant, have been the pioneers behind the “Omics” revolution at P&G for over 10 years. Backed by 45 peer-reviewed articles and 90 presentations, some P&G’s innovative work and successes in applying this breakthrough field of science to the beauty and grooming space include:

  • Profiling younger vs. older skin — P&G scientists have used gene chips to analyze the skin of younger and older women, tracking how the skin responds to photo-aging and chronological aging.  By comparing these profiles, they have found that photo-aging affects many of the same biological processes as chronological aging.  Furthermore, the P&G team has used advanced human skin models to identify solutions that help older skin appear more like younger skin, opening up tremendous potential for developing advanced anti-aging formulas and regimens.
  • Identifying promising new ingredients and combinations — one of which is the combination of peptides like Pal-KT, Niacinamide and Hexamidine.  This is fuelled by genomics insights into how peptides can help inhibit  collagen breakdown, as well as research that shows how Hexamidine can restore the synthesis of lipids, which are essential to the skin’s barrier function and protection of skin against aging effects. Pal-KT is a palmitoyl-lysine-threonine peptide which significantly inhibited collagen breakdown pathways
  • Solving the puzzle on the gender divide in skin –“Omics” science is now also beginning to help single out the key differences between male and female skin, finally putting to rest years of debate. While the basic biological processes are common to both genders, male skin biology has several unique qualities of its own: it is more sensitive to UV; has slower wound healing abilities; higher basal blood flow; and lower tolerance to pain and cold. “Omics” tools are also shedding light on how certain areas of the male face are more prone to inflammation compared to females, with the most vulnerable areas being the upper cheek, neck and skin behind the ears.
  • Advancing hair and scalp care science –Proteomics is rapidly transforming hair and scalp science by offering deep insights into the functions of proteins in the hair follicle that will impact the current understanding of hair damage and direct research into new ingredients. In particular, P&G’s state-of-the-art proteomic technologies are helping to pinpoint the specific elements of a hair fibre that are most impacted by hair damage, why these areas of the hair fibre are more prone to damage and investigate specific strategies to prevent damage.  This research has tremendous impact on how P&G approaches its haircare formulas not only to protect the hair shaft, but to potentially restore the loss of proteins.

While the application of “Omics” science has just begun, the far-reaching impact of its application across beauty and grooming is already informing P&G’s research and taking the company’s innovations across the category in new and different directions.

Much of this effort is driven by bringing together the extensive scientific expertise at P&G that parallel top research institutions globally, and P&G’s progressive stance towards collaboration. A key highlight is P&G’s recent partnership with the Institute for Systems Biology to bring deeper insights into skin biology, targeting ageing issues as one of its key focus areas.  The goal is to develop models of the global molecular changes that occur in skin under different conditions.

“‘Omics’ science is already helping us resolve some of the most complex and intriguing puzzles that still exist in beauty and grooming. Each puzzle we solve is not only expanding what we know but opening up new and intriguing future possibilities — not only for us as research scientists but also for the skin and hair products we all use everyday” said Dr Jim Thompson, Associate Director, Biotechnology and Systems Biology, P&G beauty.

Demand for Expertise in Repo and Collateral Management Is Expected to Escalate in Asia

leave a comment »

2011-07-21 15:24
SINGAPORE, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Asian central banks are applying a lot of pressure on local banks and fund managers to demonstrate their long-term liquidity capacity levels. In Asian markets where banks and fund managers often need to manage liquidity when large portions of their local currency balances are held off-shore, complex counterparty risks need to be mitigated efficiently.

Also, the need to comply with Basel III and the new FASB standards means that sophisticated collateral management business practices will become as important for fund managers and banks as managing your banking relationships for balance sheet purposes. Many foreign fund managers and banks doing business in Asia have already moved from unsecured to secured transactions, and are managing their diverse collateral needs centrally and with sophisticated, automated tools in order to optimize the use of collateral.

Key areas traders and banks are now looking closely at include selecting the best methods in securing exposures, complying with client and regulator demands to be fully secured, understanding how collateral can be moved when and where needed on a daily basis as well as managing exposures arising from asset swaps and securities loan transactions.

Knowing what is happening in the market is fundamental, but knowing how other fund managers and bankers are strategically managing collateral to mitigate credit exposures within counterparties can be an added bonus. Collateral Management & Securities Financing Asia 2011 will bring together leading fund managers and bankers in Asia to share the latest trends in the collateral management and securities financing, and how the collateral management strategy can be designed to mitigate counterparty risks and liquidity effectively.

CSR Asia Summit 2011 Themed “Asian Growth: Global Responsibility” To Be Launched in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — The ninth CSR Asia Summit, the annual flagship event of CSR Asia, will be launched at the Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 27th September 2011. Themed “Asian Growth: Global Responsibility”, the two-day Summit will take place from 27th to 28th September 2011. The CSR Asia Summit aims to be the most innovative and thought-provoking on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Asia.

More than 400 delegates from multi-disciplinary backgrounds around the world are expected to attend the Summit to discuss key CSR issues and strategies, as well as provide new insights for businesses, governments, CSR practitioners and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Delegates of CSR Asia Summit 2011 will understand the latest CSR issues, address challenges and opportunities, learn from leading sustainability practitioners, and acquire crucial tools and resources to build sustainable business strategies in Asia.

The CSR Asia Summit 2011 is designed to address findings from “CSR in 10”, a research project by CSR Asia that provides insights into emerging trends and issues for CSR over the next decade. The research revealed that according to 80 interviewees, who are CSR experts in the Asia-Pacific region, the top CSR concern from companies in Asia is Climate Change and Water Issues, while others are Corporate Governance, Disclosure and Reporting, as well as Supply Chains.

Based on these findings, renowned speakers from local and international corporations as well as NGOs will focus on four themes at the CSR Asia Summit this year. They are:
1. Asian CSR Strategies
2. Environmental Issues
3. Community Investment
4. Sustainable Supply Chains and Food Security

An annual highlight of the CSR Asia Summit is the announcement of the results from the 3rd “Asian Sustainability Rating™” (ASR™). Since its launch in 2009, the ASR™ has built a strong track record in becoming an ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) benchmarking tool for use by Asian companies, investors and other stakeholders. It is an essential reference that has helped to add value and enable companies to integrate a sustainability dimension to their business models through the years.

Richard Welford, Co-Founder and Chairman of CSR Asia said, “With the robust economic growth of Asian countries such as China and India, the spotlight is cast on the region to start taking the lead on CSR efforts. We believe the CSR Asia Summit will provide insights as to where the CSR opportunities lie in Asia, especially for growth markets, to enable companies to model their businesses to take on CSR responsibility on a global level. The CSR Asia Summit is also tailored to empower companies to meet industry experts to exchange CSR ideas, innovative solutions and experiences. It is CSR Asia’s goal to ensure each CSR Asia Summit is an effective platform that thought leaders can benefit from to develop long-term CSR solutions or initiatives, which would help them meet the growing expectations of their stakeholders.”

In Malaysia, Bursa Malaysia will launch an Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Index in late 2012. While in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited will draft an ESG Reporting Guide which outline recommended best practices for listed companies in Hong Kong. Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX) also launched its Sustainability Reporting Guide on 27th June (1). All initiatives demonstrate how governments and corporations in Asia are stepping up to take on greater responsibility to build a more sustainable world. Both have roles to play in their contributions as they build regulatory and business policies around CSR. To enable governments and corporations to make more informed decisions on sustainability, the CSR Asia Summit 2011 will cover topical issues across four different themes. Some of the topics at the Summit are “Reporting and issues management”, “Adapting to climate change – addressing the real challenges”, “Should companies invest in schools?” and “Food Safety and Stakeholder Trust”.

More than 30 speakers from a wide range of industries are already confirmed for the CSR Asia Summit 2011. Darrel Webber, Secretary General, Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, and Paul Hoff, Director of Business Development, Asia, FTSE Group will be the keynote speakers at the Summit. Other opinion leaders from local and global corporations as well as NGOs have also confirmed their speaking participation at the Summit. (Please refer to Appendix for full list of Summit speakers).

Other than networking opportunities and speaking sessions, delegates of the CSR Asia Summit 2011 will get to view exhibits of CSR projects and initiatives.  Delegates also have access to the Summit’s unique “CSR Bazaar” session on the second day, where a selection of eight CSR presentations and case studies will be presented concurrently in different plenary rooms.  On the final day, delegates will be brought together in roundtables at “The World Café”, which is yet another special feature of CSR Asia Summit and a highly commended session since its inception in 2009. A table host will facilitate group discussion on the key outcomes of the Summit so delegates can enjoy a valuable session where they are able to consolidate and discuss their learning from the Summit.

eFX Awards 2011 Names Saxo Bank the “Best Liquidity Distribution Service” FX House

leave a comment »

2011-07-20 13:00 


 

SINGAPORE, July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Saxo Capital Markets’ parent company, Saxo Bank, has won the “Best Liquidity Distribution Service” award at the annual eFX Awards 2011 hosted by FX Week in New York on 14 July 2011.

At the core of Saxo Bank Group’s offering is its White Label solution for banks that require a market leading on-line trading platform for their clients. The key benefits of the solution are:

  • It facilitates ownership and control of banks’ relationships with their clients whilst maintaining full client anonymity from Saxo;
  • Access to a fully branded and customised trading solution;
  • A facility for banks to distribute their own FX liquidity to their clients via the white-label platform;
  • A multi-asset offering with more than 20,000 financial products, including FX, Stocks, CFDs and commodities; and
  • Flexibility and control allows banks to distribute liquidity from the asset classes with tailored commission pricing to their own clients, based on their own local and regional requirements.

For institutional clients, such as hedge funds and retail aggregators with sophisticated high trading volumes, Saxo Bank Group’s trading API compliments their needs by making its multi-asset product range available in the client’s own systems via a low latency VPN, standard FIX protocol API. The trading API extends Saxo’s distribution services and makes available its range of FX crosses and order routing for CFDs, Stocks and Futures in the client’s proprietary systems.

The founders and co-CEOs of Saxo Bank Group, Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen said in a joint statement:

“Saxo Bank acts as a facilitator linking liquidity from Tier-1-banks and access to over 20 exchanges across the globe to our institutional and retail clients via our integrated platforms. The award acknowledges this business model. It makes us very proud and we are honored to accept the award.”

The Saxo Bank Group was also nominated for the “Best Retail Platform” award which was won by Citi. Citi is a White Label Client of the Saxo Bank Group, and the CitiFX Pro platform is powered by Saxo.

This year the awards were judged by industry experts, Joel Clark, Editor, FX Week, Justyn Trenner, Chief Executive, Client Knowledge, Sang Lee, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Aite Group and Rob Daly, Editor, Sell-Side Technology.
