leave a comment »

PORTLAND, Ore. /PRNewswire/ — OIA Global, a provider of worldwide logistics, packaging, and materials sourcing and Ditto Sustainable Brand Solutions, a green product design company, have announced a joint marketing agreement creating an innovative program for shipping and retailing called Garments on Ditto. This breakthrough is engineered to make shipping on hangers, commonly known as “Garments on Hanger” (GOH) far more efficient and will allow retailers to replace the billions of one-use, virgin plastic hangers now going into landfills every year. Steve Akre, OIA’s EVP of Business Development said “retailers can reduce shipping and warehousing costs up to 20% and achieve significant sustainability advances using the Garments on Ditto program.”

The key component to the program is the Ditto hanger, made from 100% recycled paper fiberboard. The hanger is extremely durable and has marketing and retail benefits not possible with plastic hangers. Gary Barker, Ditto’s founder and CEO noted, “People think plastic store hangers are used repeatedly but once the garment is sold, there’s no reuse.” Studies show that 85% of retail plastic hangers are thrown out resulting in a staggering 34 billion hangers going into landfills annually. “With the single use plastic hanger actually costing almost 10 centsmore per garment to ship, sell, and dispose of, retailers are paying a premium to send tons of plastic to our landfills,” Barker noted.

The Ditto and OIA “Garments on Ditto” program launches on September 1st.

Volkswagen Launches Cultural Engagement Initiative in China With Opening of the Rain Room Exhibition in Shanghai

leave a comment »

SHANGHAI and WOLFSBURG, Germany /PRNewswire/ —

  • Premiere in Asia: Together, Volkswagen Group China and YUZ Museum bring Rain Room to Shanghai
  • The largest installation to date of the artwork by Random International
  • Opening with around 300 guests from the fields of culture, economics and politics

– Cross reference: Picture is available at AP Images (http://www.apimages.com) and http://www.presseportal.de/nr/9260/  –

Volkswagen begins its activities as a cultural partner in China with the involvement of Volkswagen Group China in the Rain Room exhibition. Opened on Saturday evening in Shanghai, the exhibition marks the first display of Rain Room in China. The artwork created by the British-German artist collective, Random International, has already been met with great interest with displays in London and New York and for the first time occupies an area of 150m² in Shanghai so that it surpasses all previously exhibited versions.

Speaking to 300 invited guests, Budi Tek, founder of the YUZ foundation which operates the YUZ museum, andKlaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York and Director of MoMA PS1, who, together with Hans-Ulrich Obrist, was responsible for exhibition of Rain Room in New York, as well as Prof. Dr Jochem Heizmann, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group China and member of the Executive Board of Volkswagen AG, underlined the role of the exhibition for the creative dialogue.

With the support of the exhibition, Volkswagen is making an important contribution to the construction of new bridges between Western and Asian art. In this way, Volkswagen is linking its activities in China to collaboration with its other international partners. Since 2011, there has been a close partnership between Volkswagen Group of America and MoMA as well as MoMA PS1. Additionally, Volkswagen Group has maintained a partnership with the Nationalgalerie-Staatliche Museen zu Berlin since 2013.

Prof. Dr Jochem Heizmann said at the opening: “Art and culture are the driving force behind innovation, because often it is above all artists who manage to ask questions which awaken the urge for new discoveries. Volkswagen therefore promotes interaction with creative work with the greatest conviction. By supporting this exhibition, we will provide the starting signal to establish a creative platform which offers people new inspiration and provides an interesting perspective on the significance of environmental sustainability.”

With Rain Room, the artist group Random International has created an installation which combines technology and creative interaction in a unique way.  Rain Room is a room in which it is constantly raining. As soon as people move inside the room, however, the rain is interrupted precisely at these points. This makes highly-developed digital control possible which provides an unexpected refuge for the visitor in the middle of torrential rain. Rain Room was first displayed in London and subsequently in the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). At the arrangement of Volkswagen, the idea matured to give the Chinese public the opportunity to experience this work. This idea was finally implemented together with the YUZ Foundation.

The YUZ Museum Shanghai exhibits Rain Room from 1 September to 31 December 2015 within the framework of a project partnership with Volkswagen Group China. The exhibition is supplemented with artistic learning opportunities for different ages which were also developed by YUZ Museum with the support of Volkswagen Group China. Volkswagen Group China will additionally invite Chinese users to reflect individually on the topic of water using various online channels in order to connect awareness of art and the environment.

Notes for editors:

Volkswagen Group China

Volkswagen employees around 91,000 staff in China and currently produces models for the Group trademarks Volkswagen Pkw, Audi, and SKODA for the Chinese market in the SVW and FAW-VW joint ventures at 20 locations.

Novogen Announces The Outcome Of A Comprehensive Science Review

leave a comment »

— Novogen will focus the development programs for each of our three lead candidates to achieve the earliest possible initiation of clinical studies. We affirm our goal to have two products enter clinical development in 2016
— Specific indications, formulations and routes of administration have been confirmed for each program with emphasis on achieving robust data-driven milestones required to meet pre-clinical and clinical regulatory‎ requirement
— The Company’s extensive medicinal chemistry expertise and compound library coupled with its ongoing collaborations with Yale University and the University of NSW enables us to further strengthen, protect and target our future discovery programs and our intellectual property estate
— Further management and staff appointments have been made to strengthen in-house capabilities in terms of manufacturing, project management, intellectual property and investor relations expertise
— High quality candidates have been identified for the permanent CEO position including some from overseas. Interviewing of final short-listed candidates will commence mid-October with view to announcing an appointment by year-end. Recruitment of a CMO (Chief Medical Officer) is ongoing
— The Company is in a strong financial position to support the progression of the lead programs through to the clinic

SYDNEY /PRNewswire/ — US-Australian drug discovery company, Novogen Limited (ASX: NRT; NASDAQ: NVGN) today confirmed its comprehensive scientific review has identified high value opportunities for its ground-breaking technology platforms in areas of unmet patient need. Novogen is moving as quickly as practicable through the remaining preclinical projects prior to entering into Phase 1 clinical trials with our 3 lead compounds.

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Iain Ross, said that following his appointment last month, Novogen initiated a company-wide review, including a comprehensive science review, to determine top priorities and enabling the Company to focus valuable resources to achieve high value opportunities in a highly competitive market place.

“In keeping with industry best practice and Novogen’s commitment to maintaining a high standard of scientific integrity, we’ve formed a Scientific Review Committee to ensure rigor is applied to all of our decision-making processes. Committee members include retired Executive Vice President for Eli Lilly & Co and President of Lilly Bio-Medicines, Bryce Carmine, as well as two eminent academic researchers: Professor Peter Gunning  from theUniversity of New South Wales, Australia, and Professor Gil Mor from Yale University in the USA.”

“I am delighted to report our Scientific Review Committee has identified realistic opportunities based on the extensive data available for our lead drug candidates. We have therefore chosen to tighten our focus on significant areas of unmet patient need. Given scientific success we are confident these opportunities will enable us to drive strong value for shareholders,” Mr Ross said.

“The Company is in a strong financial position to expeditiously drive our three drug candidates through their final requisite pre-clinical safety programs and ultimately into Phase 1 clinical trials. This will be our next critical decision point. In line with our business strategy, we will be applying our resources to target opportunities that could generate the greatest return.”

“Pending the outcome of the required safety studies we are committed to progressing Cantrixil and Anisina to Phase 1 clinical trials in 2016 and Trilexium by 2017. We will be continuing to work through the necessary regulatory requirements as thoroughly and as quickly as practicable,” Mr Ross said.

“Another significant outcome of our scientific review has been the recognition of the depth of our medicinal chemistry expertise across our two technology platforms. This secures for the Company exceptional future growth opportunities, provides back-ups for our existing lead compounds and opens up new avenues for future discovery. Our actions have also strengthened our existing patent protection.”

Mr Ross said that following the scientific review, the Company had decided to pursue a patent protection approach for its degenerative and regenerative medicine program known as Jacob’s Hope. This program would now take a lower profile while we focus on the nearer term core opportunities.

PRODUCT UPDATE

Cantrixil

Cantrixil is the Company’s lead superbenzopyran (SBP) drug candidate designed to be injected into the intra-peritoneal (IP) cavity. We aim to treat ovarian cancer by targeting both differentiated cancer cells and potentially cancer initiating cells, the cells thought to be responsible for cancer recurrence post chemotherapy.

Therefore, Novogen is continuing to progress Cantrixil through its safety evaluation program and fulfil the necessary regulatory requirements with a view to starting Phase 1 clinical trials in 2016. As Cantrixil is a cytotoxic drug, safety signals have been identified in the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems that require further evaluation. It is important to note that the standard treatment for ovarian cancer patients has not significantly changed over the past 30 years and their prognosis remains exceptionally poor with as many as 80% of these patients suffering a relapse and ultimately an early death. Therefore an urgent unmet clinical need remains for all ovarian cancer patients. The Cantrixil preliminary safety observations have been discussed with the Medical Study Committee who concur that the benefits to ovarian cancer patients may significantly outweigh the associated risks while on treatment.

Novogen will inform shareholders once these evaluations have been completed. Assuming success the Company will progress to clinical trial in Australia focussing on late-stage ovarian cancer patients who may or may not have associated malignant ascites using an intraperitoneal mode of delivery.

While it is not possible at this stage to be precise as to when clinical trials will commence, the Company continues to target 2016 to commence a first-in-human trial for Cantrixil in Australia.

Anisina

Anisina is the Company’s lead anti-tropomyosin (ATM) compound, which is a unique first-in-class anti-cancer agent. This small ATM molecule targets a core protein component of the actin microfilaments, tropomyosin Tpm3.1, essential for tumor cell survival.

The pre-clinical evidence available supports the entry of Anisina into the regulatory required safety evaluation program. While this program is progressing, the Company will continue to evaluate the potential lead adult cancer indications to target in the clinic. This evaluation will guide us towards decisions that support a pediatric neuroblastoma program for Anisina where it has been shown to enhance the efficacy of anti-microtubule agents when assessed in pre-clinical models of human pediatric neuroblastoma.

Pending a successful safety evaluation outcome, the Company is targeting 2016 to open an all-comers Phase 1 clinical trial in Australia, where the primary outcome will be safety. Novogen has re-affirmed our commitment to pediatric neuroblastoma and has assembled the relevant therapeutic medical experts to participate on an Anisina pediatric oncology board.

Trilexium (TRXE-009)

TRXE-009 is the Company’s second lead SBP drug candidate and our least advanced drug candidate. The Company has identified a high value opportunity where there are currently no approved treatments and the current life-expectancy for patients is no more than 8 months.

Through our collaboration with a local pediatric medical oncologist, the Company has confirmed that Trilexium is exquisitely active against patient derived explants of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) in pre-clinical studies. DIPG is an aggressive but rare brain tumor primarily affecting children. Novogen has identified a drug formulation that in animals is able to deliver Trilexium to brain tissue and researchers will soon commence a proof-of-concept pre-clinical study in an orthotropic model of DIPG.

Once this proof-of-concept study is completed, the Company plans to commence the required safety evaluation program. By targeting DIPG, the Company anticipates that this strategy may provide a fast-to-market opportunity and is also planning to file for an Orphan Drug Designation status with the FDA. At this stage, first-in-human trials are targeted to commence by 2017.

About Novogen

Novogen is a public, Australian-US drug development company whose shares trade on both The Australian Securities Exchange (NRT) and NASDAQ (NVGN). The Novogen group includes US-based, CanTx Inc., a joint venture company with Yale University. Novogen has two drug technology platforms [the superbenzopyrans (SBPs) and anti-tropomyosins (ATMs)] yielding drug candidates that are first-in-class with potential application across a range of degenerative diseases. Given the encouraging data from in vitro and in vivo pre-clinical proof-of-concept studies in the field of oncology, our immediate focus is to undertake their respective toxicology programs. Our target indication for Cantrixil is ovarian cancer, and Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) for Trilexium. While the initial target pediatric indication for Anisina has been identified as neuroblastoma, we are yet to identify the adult indication and are intending to open an all-comers Phase I trial initially based on our pre-clinical studies.
