ORLANDO, Fla, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TNI BioTech Inc. (OTCQB: TNIB), ("we" or the "Company") a biotechnology company pioneering the manufacturing and marketing of innovative therapies for autoimmune diseases in emerging nations, today announced it had received payment and will make its first shipments of Lodonal® to the Republic of Panama and The Republic of Malawi in conjunction with our marketing partner, The Brewer Group, Inc.
Commenting on the initial shipments, Noreen Griffin, CEO of TNI BioTech, stated, "Extensive work has been conducted and funds spent over the last twelve months obtaining local regulatory approval preparing for the launch of Lodonal® in these markets including participation at health conferences, drug dossiers, clinical case studies and training for sales professionals. We are confident that our distributors and sales teams are well positioned to establish Lodonal® as a major competitor in the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases in emerging nations. We are looking forward to launching Lodonal® in additional markets in the fourth quarter of 2014."
Lodonal® is an active immunotherapy with low dose naltrexone (LDN), an oral medication that works by activating a patient's immune system against HIV/AIDS and tumor cells or by rebalancing the immune system of patients with autoimmune diseases with no toxic side effects.
Lodonal® competes in the advanced cancer and autoimmune drug market. Global Industry Analysis, Inc. recently released a comprehensive global report on the Autoimmune Disease Therapeutics market, which stated that the global market for Autoimmune Disease Therapeutics is projected to exceed US$77 billion by the year 2017, driven by the rising incidence of autoimmune complications worldwide. We believe that Lodonal® has demonstrated potential clinical and economic advantages over existing treatments for a number of chronic and acute autoimmune diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, certain cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's Disease and inflammatory bowel disease.
TNIB previously announced the launch of Lodonal® sales through PanAm Global Logistics, Inc. in conjunction with The Brewer Group, Inc. to the Republic of Malawi, Africa. "We are very excited to work with PanAm to begin distributing Lodonal® in Africa," stated His Excellency Ambassador Jack Brewer, founder and CEO of The Brewer Group. "The Brewer Group strives to serve a global vision with a social focus through all our advisory work and this opportunity to spread awareness for Lodonal® in emerging markets exemplifies the power of our mission. We will immediately save lives by providing access to a trusted and affordable therapy to those living in the poorest areas in the world who are suffering from cancer and other autoimmune diseases."
In June 2014, TNIB announced the signing of a distribution agreement for the non-exclusive distribution of Lodonal® into Malawi, Panama, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Malaysia and Haiti. With this sale, TNIB, through it is wholly owned subsidiary Airmed Biopharma Limited, will begin monthly shipments under the existing agreement. TNIB anticipates revenue of $1,800,000 dollars over the next twelve months.
"We're very happy with the relationship that we've created with both PanAm Global Logistics, Inc and The Brewer Group, as this is an important step in implementing our international marketing and distribution program," said Noreen Griffin, CEO of TNI BioTech.
About TNI BioTech, Inc.
TNI BioTech is a biotechnology company working to combat chronic, life-threatening diseases through the activation and modulation of the body's immune system using our patented immunotherapy. Our products and immunotherapy technologies are designed to harness the power of the immune system to improve the treatment of cancer, infections such as HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.
Our proprietary technology, therapies and patents include the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Our most advanced clinical programs involve immunotherapy with met-enkephalin ("MENK") (sometimes referred to as opioid growth factor ("OGF")) and our Low Dose Naltrexone product ("LDN") or Lodonal™, which have been shown to stimulate the immune system even in patients with advanced cancer.
Even though Management considers any condition that results in altered-immune response a target for investigation, the Company will most likely pursue additional investigations for MENK and LDN as valuable candidates in the treatment of autoimmune states such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis; as an adjunct in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments or surgery; and as a complement to antibiotics in the treatment of a variety of infectious diseases, including patients with HIV/AIDS, in combination with retroviral drug therapy.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
