SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- OmniBiome Therapeutics Inc. is the world's first biotech "idea factory" focused on developing proprietary and integrated diagnostic (Dx), medical device and therapeutic (Rx) approaches for improving outcomes in maternal healthcare -- in particular preterm labor and preterm birth.
There are about 15,000,000 preterm births per year worldwide, and 1.1 million neonatal or perinatal deaths per year as a result.
Preterm birth is a major unmet medical need in both the developing and developed worlds and cuts across all socioeconomic classes in all countries, including the U.S. where the preterm labor rate is over 12%.
"We are pleased to announce the following recent corporate milestones," noted David Palella, CEO and co-founder of OmniBiome Therapeutics:
(1) Three major U.S. patents were filed:
"Diagnostic Methods for the Assessment of Pregnancy Complications"
USSN: 61/890,356 -- 14 October 2013 [ 77 pages ] - identifies 158 putative or confirmed biomarkers associated with preterm birth. A minimalist subpanel of these will be selected to diagnose the risk of preterm labor weeks or months in advance.
"Medical Devices for Reducing the Risk of Preterm Labor and Preterm-Birth"
USSN: 61/917,364 -- December 18, 2013 [ 118 pages ] - describes multiple novel biodegradable or non-biodegradable medical devices or drug-device combinations to prevent or delay preterm labor.
"Preventative Methods and Therapeutic or Pharmaceutical Compositions for the Treatment or Prevention of Pregnancy Complications"
USSN 61925243 -- filed 09 January 2014 [ 71 pages ] - describes dozens of Rx antibody and prophylactic vaccine approaches to treat preterm labor that will be safe for use in pre-pregnant or pregnant women.
All medical devices will be out-licensed and the Dx business will be out-sourced, allowing OmniBiome to concentrate on Rx applications.
One or more of the medical devices could possibly qualify for the FDA's faster 510(k)-track. Partnering inquiries from medical device companies focused on women's healthcare are welcome.
Revenue from out-licensing of the medical devices and out-sourcing or partnering of the proprietary Dx business will materially reduce dilution of the seed and 'A' round investors.
(2) OmniBiome filed its first SBIR grant application on 03 April 2014 titled:
"Discovery of novel predictive tests and targets for treatment of preterm birth"
(3) NoPreemies.org -- a separate entity focused on funding academic or entrepreneurial research for prevention of preterm labor -- was formed by OmniBiome team members, Iryna Dzieciuch and Alejandra Mendoza. NoPreemies will soon start a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo.
Please visit NoPreemies' web site at: http://www.NoPreemies.org
Summing up, Dr. Reinhold Mueller, VP of Diagnostics Product Development at OmniBiome remarked: "Very premature preemies can cost the healthcare system $ 300 - 500K for the first 1 - 2 years of care. The approximately 500,000 premature births per year in the U.S. alone cost the healthcare system about US$ 30 billion. Prematurity of birth results in the world's most expensive hospital stays, as well as lifelong burdens on the mother should the preemie have permanent neurological, pulmonary or immunological deficits."

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
