CoapTech and Fidmi Medical to Collaborate on Groundbreaking G-Tube Systems

Baltimore, MD, 2019-Sep-18 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — CoapTech LLC (Baltimore, MD) and Fidmi Medical, Ltd. (Caesarea, Israel) announced today that they will be collaborating on bringing to market a set of next-generation products for the initial placement and long-term maintenance of gastrostomy tubes (G-tubes). The collaboration between CoapTech and Fidmi will focus on integrating the company’s two technologies and expanding their collective market opportunities.

Gastrostomy tubes, which help patients receive long-term nutritional support, are typically placed endoscopically and need to be replaced every 3-6 months.

CoapTech’s PUMA-G System allows initial gastrostomy tube placement by non-surgeons/ gastroenterologists, outside of the endoscopy suite, using point-of-care ultrasound at the patient bedside. This novel approach can be performed in the ICU, emergency room, and eventually outside of the hospital setting, substantially reducing costs for tube placement.

Fidmi Medical’s innovative low-profile gastrostomy system is unique in that it can be utilized for both initial placement and replacement and has several features which make it more durable and comfortable for patients. Gastrostomy tubes very often get dislodged, clogged, or infected, and need to be replaced frequently. Fidmi’s improved low-profile gastrostomy tube is placed just like any standard PEG tube but has an easily replaceable inner tube which can be changed by patients without the need to re-enter the healthcare system for replacement procedures. This will result in fewer complications with patients’ g-tubes, therefore potentially reducing healthcare costs for payers and healthcare systems; as well as providing a substantial improvement in quality of life for patients and their caregivers.

Fidmi Medical Chairman, Lloyd Fishman, commented, “We are excited to collaborate with CoapTech in development and marketing. Both companies have developed cutting-edge technologies that will improve patient care and contribute to the ease, efficiency and confidence of clinicians’ work in the gastrostomy field.”

Dr. Steven Tropello, CoapTech’s founder and CMO said, “In combination these systems will be compatible with Push or Pull methods, be implantable in a wide variety of clinical settings, and require minimal readmission to the hospital and fewer visits to the ER. The synergy will reduce both front and back-end costs for hospitals and payers, and make care safer and more patient-centered.”

This novel is sure to entertain while shaking up the very foundation of healthcare and the public’s confidence in that system…will it spark debate…will it create panic? The jury is out, but early reviews indicate, “taRNished” could well be one of the most important book releases of 2014.

Early reviewers include Valerie Graves who served on the 1992 Clinton/Gore advertising team and is the former creative director at nelson Communications, Inc., the health communications giant.

Ms. Graves says, “Wow! tarnished drew me right into the diabolical world of Dale and Isabel. They are two of the most coldblooded killers the medical profession may have ever produced.”

About author Willie L. Stewart:

Innovative Drug Discovery Business, Biosortia Pharmaceuticals, Lands Two Health Care Veterans

Kurt Dieck formerly SVP of Strategy and Business Execution at Cardinal Health, will lead early stage drug discovery business at Biosortia Pharmaceuticals. Dieck was named President and CEO in November 2012 and has quickly identified other key executives, including Dr. Guy Carter, former Natural Product head at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, as his Chief Science Officer. In conjunction, other collaboration partners have joined the team, including NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), NCI (National Cancer Institute) and key universities, to strategically accelerate the development of novel drug leads in the therapeutic areas of cancer, infectious diseases, inflammation and neurological disorders. Biosortia Pharmaceuticals has seen promising early results with dozens of novel compounds having already been requested, and are under evaluation with NCI and Eli Lilly.

Dieck has spent nearly 30 years in healthcare, including 18 years at Arthur Andersen as a global equity partner and then 10 years with Cardinal Health, a Fortune 20 public company, as a senior executive; there he worked with a broad spectrum of partners, including brand pharmaceutical manufacturers, throughout the supply chain. Dr. Guy Carter has over 30 years of experience working in pharmaceutical R&D, primarily in the discovery and development of microbial natural products. He previously was the leader of natural products drug discovery at Wyeth Research, as head of the Chemical Technologies Department.

“Kurt and Guy make a great team. Their complementary Pharma experiences and backgrounds create great opportunities to accelerate Biosortia’s objective to become the premier, aquatic natural products company with a primary focus in drug discovery,” says Ross Youngs, Biosortia’s Founder and Chairman. “Kurt and Guy bring a wealth of research and business experience along with deep industry relationships in building successful Pharma partnerships. Everyone involved with this young biotech is excited about the future.”

Industry observers have commented that late-stage R&D pipelines are not providing Pharma with the desired revenue growth the market is expecting. Therefore, large Pharma is evolving the way it performs R&D in order to optimize efficiency and to boost patent cliff defenses. These changes require shifting from relying solely on in-house chemistry-based R&D to acquiring and licensing external technologies and natural products based compounds in various stages of development. Biosortia’s ability to supply novel, highly active and potent compounds with drug-like characteristics will increase the productivity and success rate for Pharma as well as reduce the overall cost of the discovery process. The cost to discover, develop and launch a new drug is estimated to reach nearly $3B per drug by 2015. Biosortia’s business model is designed specifically to support Pharma’s needs.

“With nearly unlimited microorganisms (3.7 nonillion), the aquatic environment and its consortia represent an extraordinary opportunity…a new frontier, to access extremely potent and chemically diverse secondary metabolites with drug-like properties with unique mechanisms of action never researched before,” said Dieck. In describing the opportunity, Dieck goes on to say, “Biosortia is on the cutting edge of natural product discovery
and has the capabilities to deliver on its aspiration. Our powerful natural products research team, led by Dr. Guy Carter, in partnership with NOAA’s Dr. Peter Moeller, a leader in aquatic natural products research, has the experience and know-how to decipher the complex unexplored environment in a very efficient manner leveraging all the current state of the art instrumentation. The need for more efficient and effective approaches to drug discovery has never been more important. Biosortia’s innovative technologies, deep research skills and key relationships will efficiently provide thousands of unique natural products as candidates for drug discovery at a time when Pharma is in critical need for “high quality shots on goal.”

“Aquatic microbial consortia are a rich source of metabolically active organisms including microalgae, bacteria, fungi and their secondary metabolites,” states Carter. “Owing to the competitive nature of their habitat, chemical investigations of microbial consortia reveal unique structurally diversified natural products that are responsible for signaling and self-defense that have potential as therapeutics with novel mechanisms of action. Since they have been pre-optimized by nature, these compounds are typically closer to a drug candidate than a synthetic lead, thus requiring less optimization and shorter time when found as ‘hits’ in screening programs.”

The team has also focused on agreements with strategic collaboration partners as vital components to the strategy. Biosortia has recently entered into several collaboration agreements with NOAA, Analyticon and exclusive harvesting relationships, just to name a few. Several others will be advanced by the end of January. Biosortia’s cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) with NOAA’s Center for Human Health Risk at Hollings Marine Laboratory provides a 5-year framework for research and development regarding the analysis and purification of novel bioactive compounds. According to NOAA’s Technology Partnerships Office, “Success will result in the commercial development of new and unique chemical compounds from the sea which have benefits to human health, either through disease prevention or new treatments for disease.”

Dr. Peter Moeller, NOAA’s Research Scientist who leads the Toxins Natural Products Program stated after analyzing fractions of Biosortia’s biomass, “Coupling NOAA’s mission of characterizing toxins affecting environmental and/or human health with Biosortia’s drug discovery focus turns one man’s toxin into another’s chemotherapeutic. The microorganisms analyzed in the Biosortia biomass identified more unique activity than I have seen in my 30 year career. The volumes achieved from a single harvest delivered an equivalent of 30 years of accumulation. This could materially change the landscape for natural products drug discovery research.”

As of December 31, 2012, Biosortia has identified more than 30 bioactive candidate compounds (hits) from a fresh water eutrophic lake consortium. Therapeutic areas of focus include treatments for cancer, infectious diseases, inflammation and neurological disorders. In addition, more than a dozen of its patent protected compounds are in initial evaluation stage within Eli Lilly’s Open Innovation Drug Discovery Program.

Dieck states, “Looking forward, it is with great optimism. We have a great team built around mutual respect, deep experience, and a desire to succeed and make a difference. We are aligning with the right partners and collaborators to execute our strategy with speed and discipline to provide Pharma with much high quality & diverse compounds vs. “me-too” drugs than they have had in the past 10 years. We are excited about what this company can accomplish, not only for its shareholders but also for the millions of people who have been diagnosed with various forms of chronic diseases who are looking for Pharma to identify better ways to help them extend their lives or live a more productive life. Biosortia can play a big role in identifying compounds that can help Pharma achieve these goals. I am looking forward to the challenge and opportunity to build an industry leading drug discovery company.”

Lincoln, NE, March 07, 2012 – Health Education Solutions, a leading provider of online certification options for healthcare professionals and first responders, today announced that it has added American Heart Association HeartCode® Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Part 1 to its catalog of online courses.

HeartCode® ACLS by the American Heart Association (AHA) is the official, self-directed, comprehensive e-learning program from the AHA. Health Education Solutions offers Part 1, the cognitive portion of the course. Parts 2 and 3 – skills practice and check – must be completed with an AHA ACLS Instructor or a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system. Students must complete all three parts in order to receive an AHA ACLS provider course completion card.

“Many healthcare and emergency response employers require their teams to not simply gain ACLS certification, but to specifically earn an AHA ACLS provider card,” said Melissa Marks, president of Health Education Solutions. “HeartCode® ACLS by the American Heart Association enables these busy professionals to conveniently complete the cognitive portion of the course in their own time and at their own pace.”

In the online, cognitive portion of the American Heart Association ACLS certification course, students will learn ACLS principles by reviewing 10 realistic patient scenarios that cover the ACLS algorithms, participating in a team dynamics lesson and taking a written exam. Students may incur an additional fee for parts 2 and 3 to complete the HeartCode® ACLS course.

For healthcare professionals and first responders whose employer does not require an AHA card for ACLS, Health Education Solutions offers an ACLS recertification course that can be completed in its entirety online. Click here for ACLS recertification information. Health Education Solutions additionally offers an alternate ACLS certification course, which reflects the 2010 AHA guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC). For pediatric emergency care professionals, Health Education Solutions offers pediatric advanced life support (PALS) certification and recertification courses. These courses were developed in partnership with medical faculty at Union College in Lincoln, Neb.

Health Education Solutions offers ACLS practice tests and PALS practice tests to help professionals preparing for ACLS and PALS certification courses.

Premium rates for Patriot America Insurance shall continue unchanged till end of July 2011.

The old rates from 2010 shall apply for all new plan enrollments till July 31, 2011.

Patriot america insurance over the last several years has been very popular with US visitors and tourists. The plan primarily provides coverage for medical expenses for sickness or injuries incurred by foreign citizens visiting the US. Coverage includes for both in-patient and out-patient expenses. Incidents can be as simple as the flu or a life threatening accident.

The current policy offers overall coverage plan limits ranging from $50,000 to $1,000,000 per person.

Atlas America Insurance Recent Updates

Recent changes to rates and benefits of atlas america insurance plan appear to have been received well in the market. atlas america insurance offered at www.eatlasamericainsurance.com is an insurance policy for non-US citizens visiting the United States, whether it is for business, pleasure or study.

The premium rates in most age brackets had seen an increase. The biggest increase in premiums was in the senior age bracket. This has been explained by an experienced insurance agent marketing the plans as, “we had seen this coming. There are thousands of seniors touring and visiting family in the US; the older generation has had the most hospitalizations.”

US Hospitalization bills can shock foreign travelers visiting the US. A single day at a US hospital can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to several thousand dollars. The cost can vary depending on the services rendered and the geographical location of the service provider. Prudent travelers to the US protect their travels with one of the many travel health insurance plans available in the open market like the Atlas America insurance.

The plan administrators also revised the plan to exclude coverage for medical bills arising from treatment of injuries sustained during participation in inter-collegiate, inter-scholastic, intramural and club sports/activities. “Once again, claims history and experience has forced this revision. Injuries during these organized sports are very common; treating & mending broken ankles and wrists are not cheap in the US” said the same insurance agent.

These plan revisions take little away from the favorable atlas america insurance experience US visitors and travelers have had over the years. The plan continues to be one of the best visitor insurance products in the market. The many years of experience of the staff providing the policy claims and service makes it one of the most reliable plans.
