The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed more than 8,800 people and injured more than 23,000. It devastated this beautiful country and its people; historical monuments have disappeared, villages destroyed and communities left damaged and filled with pain and lost.   Korean Rescue Team The Korean rescue team worked tirelessly in hope of a rescue, but all that is left is the dead. The first floor of a building had collapsed and the restaurant that occupied that space now gone along with those who died whilst eating lunch on this normal day before the quake. Survivors Most have lost a family member or friend, but what is clear and inspiring is none have lost hope. These pictures are all an exchange of respect and compassion for the victims’ terrible loss. One survivor says, "My house is destroyed, but I'm alive and thankful and I will rebuild it and my life again".   Refugees and Villages Here are the courageous and unbreakable individuals, families and communities who keep strong while facing their realities and being thankful to be alive.  Some live in refugee camps, others under tents and many still stuck in their destroyed villages. All have one thing in common; they are striving to rebuild their homes and lives somehow. Reconstruction  The mobilisation and collaboration of aid and reconstruction in Nepal is immense and touching to see. Everyone who has two hands helps, the old and young Nepalese work alongside foreign aid workers to clear bricks away. All are part of a human chain that is helping to rebuild the magic of Nepal.

Saab Receives UK Orders for Giraffe

The Giraffe AMB radar provides a full 360° update of the air situation out to 120 km every second. It can operate in challenging environments such as mountains, complex coastal regions and wind farm areas. The upgrade will take the UK’s existing systems to the same production-build standard as the new Giraffe AMB, enhancing the primary radar’s performance and capacity. It also keeps the UK’s radars in line with the Giraffe product roadmap. This, in turn, will enable the addition of a unique capability to spot small UAS vehicles and the capacity to screen out difficult radar ‘clutter’, such as birds. “We are delighted to have agreed this significant expansion and upgrade of the Giraffe AMB fleet with the UK MoD. We are looking forward to supporting both potential mission deployments and further system evolutions based on our spiral development plan for Giraffe,” says Micael Johansson, head of Saab business area Electronic Defence Systems. Development and production will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden. The multi-mission Giraffe AMB surveillance radar system was first acquired by the United Kingdom in 2008 as part of the Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) programme. Since deliveries started in 2010 it has been used to provide the real-time air picture in support of airspace management on deployed operations and at major events in the UK. It has also made a vital contribution to force protection through the detection and prediction of impact of incoming rockets, artillery shells and mortars. The Giraffe AMB is part of Saab’s Giraffe product family that includes high-performance air and sea surveillance and target indication radars, covering very short to long ranges. The Giraffe also has essential command and control for ground based air defence and sense-and-warn applications.

Blood vessel cells help tumours evade the immune system

Immune-based antitumour therapies, that strengthen the body's own ability to fightcancer, have attracted great attention in recent years and achieved interesting success rates, especially in malignant melanoma. However, many patients still do not respond to immune-based therapies.The results from the current study imply that tumour pericytes, a cell that is part of the tumour blood vessels, critically manipulate the tumour environment, helping the cancer cells escape immune surveillance.“Understanding the interplay between tumour pericytes, malignant cells, and the immune system might help in designing more personalised and effective therapeutic approaches”, says Principal Investigator Guillem Genové at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (http://ki.se/en/mbb/startpage) at Karolinska Institutet.Tumours evade the immune system by a variety of mechanisms, one of them being the recruitment of so called ‘myeloid-derived suppressor cells’ (MDSC). MDSCs suppress the ability of killer T-cells to destroy cancer cells. It is known that the more MDSCs present, the worse the prognosis or therapy response of the patient. Tumours secrete signal molecules such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) that help in recruiting MDSCs, but the mechanisms behind IL-6 tumour secretion are quite unknown.The researchers found that the higher the number of pericytes, the more “normal” the tumour environment looked like. On the contrary, diminished pericyte numbers altered the microenvironment and correlated to higher IL-6 expression from the malignant cells and more MDSCs. They also identified a subset of breast cancer patients who had fewer pericytes and increased MDSCs, correlating to a worse prognosis and more aggressive characteristics of the tumour.“Our work suggests that ways to increase the numbers of pericytes could potentially decrease IL-6 expression. This could improve cytotoxic T-cell activity and result in better antitumour effect”, says Dr Genové.The research was supported by grants from, among others, the Swedish Cancer Foundation, the Strategic Cancer Research Program (StratCan) and BRECT Breast Cancer Theme Centrum at Karolinska Institutet, and the Swedish Research Council–supported STARGET Linneus Center of Excellence.

MKM Releases Duo of Sexy New Tracks Inspired by Iconic Club Anthem

The UK’s fiercest female DJ is cranking up the volume with the release of a brand new track inspired by legendary club anthem, Where Love Lives. The track was originally recorded by British songstress Alison Limerick and has been reimagined by Miss (http://www.highonheels.co.uk/) Kelly (http://misskellymarie.com/) Marie as ‘Where Love Lives,’ a contemporary piece with its own unique flavour. “I’ve loved the soulful feel, hooky piano and Gorgeous bass lines of Where Love Lies since it first hit the club scene back in 1990. It’s a track I’ve always wanted to include in our live sets and now this vision has become a reality.” says Kelly. Also known as MKM, Miss Kelly Marie is a DJ, producer, radio host and creator of all-female music collective High On Heels.

MTG takes next step in strategic transformation

This will result in a proposed reduction of MTG’s employee base by a net of approximately 300 positions in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and UK combined, as well as the impairment of content and other assets. Net restructuring charges are expected to amount to approximately SEK 700 million and all be charged against the Group’s operating income in Q3 2015 as a non-reoccurring item. Approximately 60% of the charges refer to redundancy costs, and 40% to impairment charges. The cash flow impact is expected to be approximately SEK 550 million. The restructuring is expected to generate annualized savings of approximately SEK 600 million, of which the majority will be reinvested back into the Group’s ongoing transformation into a broad based video entertainment company.The majority of the savings will impact in 2016 and have full effect from 2017. “We started on this journey to transform the Group, in order to drive and shape the fast moving changes in consumer behaviour and the video entertainment environment. We want to be able to continue to invest in our successful existing operations and exciting new businesses, in order to secure our future profitable growth, and that requires accelerated changes in our current structure. Today’s announcement follows the management changes we made in May, and local leadership teams are now adjusting their organizations accordingly. The decisions and actions that we are taking are difficult because valued colleagues will leave the group, but they are necessary and we are doing all that we can to assist those affected by these changes.” Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG President and CEO ****

Pioneering Wireless ‘SmartHub’ Aims to Become the Must-Have Router for Smart Homes of the Future

A pioneering wireless router is making waves on Indiegogo, as a crowdfunding campaign gains momentum in its attempt to give the humble home router a much-needed facelift. SmartHub is exactly what the name suggests – an intelligent home hub designed to meet the needs of tech-heavy twenty-first century homes. As our usage of internet-enabled gadgets increases by the year, and the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a viable prospect for family homes and not just sci-fi movies, the team behind the SmartHub have engineered a brand new wireless router with a multitude of features built for the ‘smart homes’ of the future. The SmartHub is loaded with features that modern homes are craving. Lightning-fast Wi-Fi is obviously a must for many homes using multiple gadgets, and the SmartHub delivers in spades – but there’s much more. A flash storage bay allows households to turn the SmartHub into their very own secure cloud storage service, creating an accessible storage solution for movies, music, photos and documents that households want to share. The router has also been stripped of trailing power cables. Instead, the unit plugs directly into the wall, and a built-in lithium-ion battery allows the router to function for long periods of time without drawing energy from the mains – great for households keeping an eye on their energy bills. The router also acts as a master console for all wireless-enabled devices in the home. Using Cortex, the SmartHub’s open source cloud operating system, the SmartHub gives users the ability to control locks, lights, thermostats, fire alarms and heating devices – all from a single app that syncs perfectly with the SmartHub. Alex Sutherland, director and creator of the SmartHub says, “We’re thrilled to have launched our Indiegogo campaign to make the SmartHub the nerve-centre of every home. With access to lightning-fast Wi-Fi, the ability to store household files and documents, and control all wireless-enabled home appliances, the SmartHub is the must-have router for the twenty-first century home.” As with all crowdfunding campaigns, a range of rewards are up for grabs for those who choose to back the SmartHub project. Backers can pledge as little as £1 and as much as £900 to put the SmartHub into production, with rewards including a thank you postcard, access to the partner development programs and a bulk selection of ten SmartHubs for the backers’ families and friends. Alex Sutherland adds, “We’re confident that there is a high level of demand for an item such as this. The market research our team undertook found that 85% of respondents would choose the SmartHub over any traditional router on the market, which shows us that we’ve produced an intelligent product that meets the connectivity needs of many households. We have very high hopes for the Indiegogo campaign, and we look forward to potentially putting the SmartHub into full production with the help of our backers!” To find out more about the SmartHub, or to back the campaign, visit the Indiegogo campaign page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/smarthub-smart-home-controller-home-router

Facts about the Swedish implementation of the new EU inspection Directive

EU inspection package A new EU directive for technical inspection of vehicles (Directive 2014/45 /EU) was adopted in spring 2014. The new directive contains a number of stringent requirements including introduction of monitoring of electronically controlled safety systems, the introduction of controls of vehicles with speed over 40 km/h etc. The Directive will be implemented gradually until 2018 by legislation in each Member State. The main purpose of the inspection package is to improve road safety in Europe through an elevated minimum level of vehicle inspection and more harmonization between Member States by making assessments more uniform. The Inspection Package is a so-called minimum directive, which means that each Member State has the right to impose stricter but not more lenient, regulations than what the directive proposes. How often should a vehicle be inspected? The new EU directive has not changed the call-in intervals, i.e. how often a vehicle must be inspected. Under the EU minimum requirements for vehicles under three and a half tons, the first technical inspection takes place after four years. Thereafter, the inspection will take place at the latest every two years. This system is therefore often known as 4-2-2. Just over half of the EU countries already today applies more frequent inspections than the minimum requirement. In Sweden, for example, the first vehicle inspection takes place after three years, the second after another two years and then annually. This system is called 3-2-1. The first step in implementing the directive in Sweden was taken when the government gave the Transport Agency the assignment to evaluate how Sweden should relate to the new directive and to suggest recommended actions. One option that is being investigated is to "thin out" the intervals between each inspection, from 3-2-1 to 4-2-2. This despite the fact that the intentions of the new EU directive is not lowered ambition levels for the inspection policy, but on the contrary increased levels of ambition. What would a thinning out of the inspection intervals mean? Preventive maintenance is expected to decrease drastically if cars are inspected more seldom. Already after an average Swedish car has passed three years the maintenance services drops drastically. Necessary repairs may be delayed or withheld for vehicles that fail professional review through an inspection company or a workshop. Vehicle inspection contributes to a reduced environmental impact and increased environmental awareness among vehicle owners. Exhaust gas measurement carried out at an inspection verifies that emissions are within the limits the Transport Agency established for the vehicle and its age. Control of vehicle exhausts is our main effort to reduce the negative impact of the traffic on the environment. A thinning out of the inspection intervals therefore risks leading to a negative impact on the climate and environment. If the Swedish automobiles´ emission control systems are not checked often enough, it is likely that emissions will increase. Sweden has many old cars, whose average mileage is comparatively high even up to about the age of fifteen. It is precisely older cars that often have flaws, which increases the risk of traffic accidents. The Swedish climate is causing even more rust problems than in southern countries, and wear and corrosion related failures increase rapidly with increasing age of the vehicle. German scientists have studied what the economic impact would be if Germany, which currently applies 4-2-2, would chose to move to closer inspection intervals[1]. According to the study, it would be economically viable to switch to 3-2-1 or 3-2-2-1. The study found that states with higher demands lose by lowering the regulation to the minimum level. Welfare losses at such a reform would be higher than the cost savings for car owners. Conclusions and comments by the Vehicle Inspection Industry Last year, The Economist magazine wrote that Sweden has the world's safest roads[2]. One reason for this is our high ambitions for regular vehicle inspection. SWETIC-SF welcomes the trend towards higher standards, clearer rules and improved equality for vehicle inspection throughout the EU that this new EU-directive may pose. A thinning of the inspection intervals, by contrast, increases risks of road accidents and environmental emissions. Therefore the Vehicle Inspection Industry as well as the organizations Bil Sweden and NTF (National Society for Road Safety) are critical towards the idea to thin out the intervals. Instead, let Sweden continue to be a pioneer of road safety and reduced environmental impact from vehicles.

New Research Reveals Brits Spend £7.5 Billion Moving Home

According to the latest statistics from Lloyds Bank the cost of moving home in the UK is at its highest level since 2007. Yorkshire based removals company 1 Van 1 Man (https://www.1van1man.com/removal-services/house-removals-york.html) is helping Brits keep costs to an absolute minimum with its fast, friendly and affordable service that’s tailored to suit the individual needs of every client. With coverage across Europe, the York removals company is taking good old fashioned Northern service across the continent. In 2014 the cost of moving house was estimated at £8,689. In just 12 months it’s risen by £431. The increase has been largely driven by estate agent fees and surveyors, which accounted for £386 of the £431 increase. When combined with the increase in home sales seen in 2014, the total amount the nation spends on moving per annum soared to £7.5 billion. This represents a 15% jump from 2014’s £6.5 billion figure. With costs on the rise it’s important for Brits to start becoming savvy when it comes to saving cash during the move. “With the cost of moving at its highest level since 2007, people struggling to cover the costs should look to make savings wherever they can,” comments Andy Hulme, mortgages director at Lloyds Bank. While evading rising estate agent and surveyor fees is generally unavoidable, there are other areas Brits can minimise the cost of a move. Transporting furniture from A to B is always a necessity, however thanks to 1 Van 1 Man it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Designed to save customers time and cash, the nationwide service is a godsend for Brits that are being stung by increasing estate agent and surveyor fees. Costs are 100% transparent which means customers enjoy an accurate quote, with zero hidden fees. All moves are covered by the company’s goods in transit insurance policy which means any incidents are backed by a £10,000 indemnity. For Brits that are really counting their pennies 1 Van 1 Man offers an ultra-affordable ‘You Load’ service that gives customers the option of playing a hands-on role in the moving process. The driver and van service shuns the red tape of hiring a self-drive vehicle and replaces it with the convenience and affordability of an all-inclusive service. Dale Gosine, CEO of 1 Van 1 Man said, “Whether our customers are moving a few items of furniture from an inner city flat or an entire life’s worth of possessions from a spacious family estate, our furniture removals York service is on-hand to help with our affordable ‘man and van’ York service that’s significantly cheaper than the competition. Not to mention far friendlier!” To find out more about 1 Van 1 Man and how the service is helping Brits slash the cost of moving house, go to: https://www.1van1man.com/removal-services/house-removals-york.html

Business Use of Drones to Surge in 2016

Experts in the UAV and drone industry have predicted a surge in the training and use of commercial drones for 2016, ahead of the nation’s first ever drone expo. The UK Drone Show is set to take place at the NEC in Birmingham, and due to demand an extra date has been added, now running 5-6 December 2015. Drones have been increasingly used in the public and private sector, by media companies for aerial photography and cinematography, mapping and surveys and in the agriculture industry. The drone industry is creating careers as more and more businesses recognise the benefits of UAV technology and look to recruit drone engineers and experts. Oliver O’Brien, the show’s Project Manager said, “Some industries started using drones a few years ago, but suddenly more and more businesses are realising the advantages and jumping on the bandwagon. We predict the use of commercial drone technology is going to continue to increase throughout 2016, especially with DJI, the world’s largest consumer drone manufacturer, reportedly being valued at $10 billion.” Companies already utilising UAV technology include Amazon, Shell and DHL and they are increasingly being used for humanitarian projects, including catching poachers in Africa’s National Parks and helping out in disaster zones. Businesses which are planning to introduce drones to its operations in 2016 and beyond include Easyjet and Network Rail. Manny Williamson, from the British Model Flying Association said, “The British Model Flying Association are very pleased to be attending The UK Drone Show in December, with a stand featuring a range of resources including a flight simulator, as well as the opportunity to gain advice and guidance on all aspects of sport and recreational multi rotor flying. “Staff will be on hand to discuss aspects such as insurance and legislation, and the Civil Aviation Authority will also be sharing the stand in order to promote the launch of the forthcoming Drone Awareness Week and to advise on the legalities for those considering commercial activity with their aircraft.”  The UK Drone Show is the largest consumer drone event to ever take place in the UK, and is a great industry research opportunity for businesses considering incorporating drone technology. The event will feature exhibitors including drone manufacturers, UAV gadget and specialist software suppliers, demonstrations of the latest tech and expert speakers who will provide an insight into the future of drones. It’s everything to do with drones and UAV technology all under one roof, and a great place for businesses to meet the pioneers of drone technology and discover the endless opportunities it provides. Oliver added, “In the business arena, drones are definitely the next big thing for most industries. The UK Drone Show is the best place for companies to explore their options and discover just how UAV technology can be integrated into their business.” To find out more about the largest drone industry event in the UK, visit: http://www.ukdroneshow.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/UK-DRONE-SHOW-2015/397658183735888 Twitter: https://twitter.com/ukdroneshow

Good performance and positive market conditions result in good operating EBIT

The total volumes harvested in Q2 2015 were 14,182 tonnes gutted weight, which is a record high harvest in a quarter for Bakkafrost. The guidance for harvest volumes for 2015 is unchanged. The farming segment delivered an operational EBIT of DKK 248 million in Q2 2015. The VAP segment, which produced 5,064 tonnes in Q2 2015, made an operational EBIT of DKK 31 million. The FOF segment delivered an EBITDA of DKK 53 million in Q2 2015. Commenting on the result, CEO Regin Jacobsen said: “Bakkafrost harvested over 14 thousand tonnes in Q2 2015, which is the highest quarterly harvest ever for Bakkafrost. This together with good operational performance and positive market conditions re­sulted in a record high operating EBIT in Q2 2015. Bakkafrost’s focus on the operational performance is reflected in the investment of the new wellboat, “Hans á Bakka”. “Hans á Bakka” was delivered in July and started operating in August 2015, which marks a milestone in salmon farming in the Faroe Islands.” Bakkafrost released 1.4 million smolts in Q2 2015, which is in line with the company’s smolt release plan. The good catch of pelagic fish around the Faroe Islands in Q1 2015 continued into Q2 2015. Havsbrún has purchased 86 thousand tonnes of raw material in Q2 2015. Havsbrún’s purchase of raw material in first half 2015 amounts to 161 thousand tonnes. Bakkafrost’s net interest bearing debt at the end of Q2 2015 was DKK 302 million, compared with DKK 233 million at year-end 2014. Bakkafrost had undrawn credit facilities of approximately DKK 721 million at the end of Q2 2015, and the equity ratio was 61%. OUTLOOK Market The salmon market’s global demand growth has increased the last years due to high growth rate in emerging markets and a stable growth in other markets. Expected global supply growth in 2015 is around 4-5% and 2-3% in 2016. Production capacity is close to full utilization and further expansion relates to high investments. Farming Bakkafrost expects to harvest 49,000-51,000 tonnes gutted weight in 2015. Bakkafrost’s forecast for smolt release in 2015 is 10.4 million pieces. The estimates for harvesting volumes and smolt releases is as always dependent on the biological situation. Value added products (VAP) Bakkafrost’s long-term strategy is to sell around 40-50% of the harvested volumes of salmon as value added products on fixed price contracts. The contracts last for 6 to 12 months. Bakkafrost has signed contracts covering around 75% of the VAP capacity for the rest of 2015. Fish oil, -meal and feed (FOF) The outlook for the production of fishmeal and fish oil has improved as the available raw material for the production has increased. The quotas for catching blue whiting in the North Atlantic have in-creased. With increased quotas, Bakkafrost is optimistic that the raw materials needed for our pro­duction of high quality salmon feed will be available. Havsbrún’s sales of fish feed in 2015 is expected to be at 73,000 – 77,000 tonnes. This is a reduction from the previous outlook at 83,000 – 87,000 tonnes, as the sale of fish feed to external customers has been reduced. The expected feed purchase from Bakkafrost’s farming segment in 2015 is un­changed. Investments Bakkafrost has announced an investment plan for the period until 2017, latest updated in August 2014. The purpose of the investment plan is to continue to have one of the most costs efficient value chains in the farming industry, carry out organic growth, increase flexibility and reduce the biological risk to meet the future consumers’ trends and to be more end-customer orientated. The total investments for the period 2014-2017 were announced to be DKK 1,370 million including maintenance CAPEX. Investments in 2015 are expected to be DKK 550 million. Financial Improved market balances in the world market for salmon products and costs effective production will likely improve the financial flexibility going forward. A high equity ratio with the Group’s bank financing and the issuance of bonds makes Bakkafrost’s financial situation strong. This enables Bakka­frost to carry out its investment plans to further focus on strengthening the Group, M&A’s, organic growth opportunities and fulfil its dividend policy in the future.

Sims Recycling Solutions Receives ISO 50001:2011 Accreditation

Sims Recycling Solutions, the leading global provider of IT and electronics reuse and recycling has received ISO 50001:2011 accreditation. The objective of this standard is to continuously improve energy-related performance and identify energy-reduction opportunities through the development of an energy management system (EnMS). These efforts will not only save money and help conserve resources, but will also contribute to the company’s overall efforts (http://www.simsrecycling.com/About-Us/Global-Certifications?utm_source=press%20release&utm_medium=cisionwire&utm_content=germany%20iso%2050001&utm_campaign=Press%20Release%20-%20August%202015) to improve quality and environmental management.  “Our customers expect excellence from us so we are always looking for ways to further minimize our environmental impact and enhance our security features,” stated Marc Affüpper, managing director of Sims Recycling Solutions, Germany. “We are proud to be one of the first in our industry to achieve the ISO 50001 standard and look forward to creating the path for the rest to follow as we continue to identify best practices.” To achieve this standard the Sims Recycling Solutions site in Bergkamen had to create and implement the following: -        Energy management integration into existing management systems -        Energy policy -        Energy consumption reduction targets -        Detailed action plan to reach targets -        Internal energy auditing program “It is very important to us, as a company, to stay committed to improving the quality of our services which includes environmental management,” stated Steve Skurnac, president of Sims Recycling Solutions. “This standard will help us perform more efficiently and stay on top of our energy consumption.” As a part of this accreditation, Sims Recycling Solutions’ Bergkamen site set a goal to have a 10 percent reduction of energy consumption per metric ton of processed material within seven years. Many efforts have already been enforced to move toward this target which included upgrading to more energy-efficient equipment, investigating air consumption and implementing monthly quality checks for use of diesel, electricity and natural gasoline consumption.

BillerudKorsnäs investigates opportunities for growth

BillerudKorsnäs is a leading supplier of renewable fiber based packaging materials and solutions. Within liquid packaging board and other virgin fiber cartonboard, the company is one of the world leaders. Driven by global megatrends, the demand for these types of board is increasing. BillerudKorsnäs therefore wants to investigate the possibility of installing a new board machine at the production unit in Gruvön. The investigation is a part of BillerudKorsnäs strategy for volume growth within business area Consumer Board. It is also in line with the strategies for the business areas Containerboard and Packaging Paper. The machine would become one of the most cost efficient in the world with a capacity of approximately 500 000 t/a of liquid packaging board, cartonboard, food service board and white kraftliner. In addition to growth in attractive board segments, an investment decision would also include a streamlining of the production structure within the business area Packaging Paper as the current production of kraft papers at the Gruvön production unit would be discontinued and replaced by production at other BillerudKorsnäs units. A potential investment decision can be made at the earliest during 2016. Simultaneously, BillerudKorsnäs is launching an investigation into the possibilities of further structural change and growth in selected attractive kraft paper segments. The investigation includes exploring the possibility of moving the MG paper machine in Finnish Tervasaari, unintegrated to pulp production, to Swedish Skärblacka, which is an integrated unit. The investigation also includes investment in further value adding surface treatment capacity at existing MG paper production in Skärblacka. If implemented, the investments would strengthen Skärblacka’s position as one of the world's most efficient production units for white MG papers while also opening up opportunities in attractive market segments within medical papers, food packaging and release liners. The investigation will be completed during the first half of 2016 and after a potential decision is taken about a year is required to carry out the investment in surface treatment capacity and one and a half years for a potential paper machine move. “These two investigations clearly indicate that we have our sights set on growth. We carefully compare all different growth scenarios to each other. Right now, we consider conditions for organic, investment driven, growth in our own production structure as the most favorable. These investigations do not exclude the possibility of further acquisitions”, says Per Lindberg, President and CEO, BillerudKorsnäs. The investigations are independent of each other. Also independent of the outcome of the investigations, BillerudKorsnäs invites to union negotiations regarding a possible closure of the BillerudKorsnäs production at Tervasaari.

H&M Conscious Foundation gives €1 million grant to pioneering ideas closing the loop for fashion

Five winners, chosen by an expert jury, will share a grant of €1 million and get access to a tailor-made innovation accelerator. The global public will be invited to distribute half of the total grant through an online vote. The result will be revealed at a grand award ceremony in Stockholm, in February 2016. “The question for fashion is no longer “What is the new black?” but rather “What innovative ideas can close the loop?” The Global Change Award is looking for ideas that will protect the earth’s natural resources, and I am excited to be part of it,” says Rebecca Earley, Professor in Sustainable Textile and Fashion Design at University of the Arts London, Director of its Textile Futures Research Centre and member of the Global Change Award Jury. The H&M Conscious Foundation is a non-profit global foundation, funded by the Stefan Persson family − founders and main owners of the Swedish fashion company H&M. The mission of the Foundation is to drive long-lasting positive change and improve living conditions by investing in people, communities and innovative ideas. The Global Change Award takes on one of the biggest challenges facing today's fashion industry – to create fashion for a growing population while reducing its impact on the environment. Neither the Foundation nor the company H&M will take any equity or intellectual property rights in the innovations. “Ground-breaking, game-changing ideas can come from anywhere, so the challenge is open to anyone. Each year the Global Change Award aims to find the truly brave and bold ideas that make change. I’m also eager to see how the fashion industry as a whole will embrace the challenge of closing the loop,” says Karl-Johan Persson, board member of the H&M Conscious Foundation and CEO of H&M. The innovation accelerator − a collaboration with Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm − will give the five winners the support and knowledge they need to actualize their ideas. Starting off with an innovation boot camp in Stockholm, provided by KTH Innovation, it will be followed up by guidance from Accenture Strategy on how to develop the winning ideas further. This includes the provision of a one-year training and coaching programme with a particular focus on circular economy.  The innovation accelerator will also provide exclusive fashion industry access and offer possibilities to build networks and try out the ideas within the fashion value chain.

Close the Loop and Circular EconomyIn a world with increasingly constrained resources and environmentalchallenges, the circular approach represents a radical departure from the oldlinear “take, make, waste” production and consumption models to a model whereproducts and resources are designed to have more than one life. Closing theloop for fashion means finding new approaches in the whole value chain of theindustry; changing the way garments are designed, produced, shipped, bought,used and recycled. The theory about circular economy may be the biggestrevolution in the global economy in 250 years as it challenges companies torethink their business models and customer relationships by detaching growthfrom the single-use of natural resources and environmental impact. Thiscreates new business opportunities as well as an unassailable competitiveadvantage.

Background to and reasons for the Offer Hemtex has been a strategic holding for ICA Gruppen since the acquisition of the shares and the companies have during recent years further strengthened their relationship with joint purchasing and the joint customer offering ICA Home by Hemtex. Hemtex has in recent years undergone an extensive transformation plan to improve profitability and efficiency throughout the organisation. The transformation plan has resulted in both increased sales and improved profitability, but it is ICA Gruppen’s belief that Hemtex as a wholly owned subsidiary to ICA Gruppen is given better preconditions to continue the efforts to strengthen the offering and achieve continued positive sales development through an increased number of sales channels and through continued rationalisation of the business further improve the profitability. ICA Gruppen places great value on Hemtex’ management and employees, who are important for a successful development of the business. ICA Gruppen does not anticipate any significant effects from the Offer for the Company’s employees, whether in terms of conditions of employment or employment at the locations where the Company conducts its business. There are no plans to significantly alter the existing strategy for Hemtex. The Offer ICA Gruppen offers 7.50 Swedish krona in cash for each share in Hemtex[3] (http://file:///C:/Users/h00ofl/Desktop/Projekt%20H/150824%20PRM%20Project%20H%20ENG%20FINAL.docx#_ftn3). No commission will be charged in connection with the Offer. The total value of the Offer amounts to approximately 719 million Swedish krona based on a total of 95,835,506 outstanding shares in Hemtex.

The acceptance period for the Offer is expected to commence 3 September 2015 and end 1 October 2015.

Coor Service Management Holding AB – Interim Report 25 August 2015

A second quarter on track Second quarter 2015 · Net sales increased by 9 per cent in the second quarter, to SEK 1,786 (1,642) million. · The operating profit (adjusted EBITA) improved by SEK 6 million to SEK 88 (82) million. The operating margin (adjusted EBITA margin) was 5.0 (5.0) per cent. EBIT was SEK -42 (11) million, mainly due to listing costs of 78 MSEK. · Earnings after tax were SEK 128 (-69) million. The change compared with the previous year is due to the recognition of tax losses. · Earnings per share were SEK -1.81 (-8.16). Adjusted for the new capital structure and one-off costs in conjunction with the listing, earnings per share amounted to SEK 1.97 (-0.72). · Operating cash flow improved by SEK 153 million to SEK 45 (-108) million. First half year 2015 · Net sales during the period grew by 15 per cent to SEK 3,634 (3,149) million. · The operating profit (adjusted EBITA) improved by SEK 25 million to SEK 188 (163) million. The operating margin (adjusted EBITA margin) was 5.2 (5.2) per cent. EBIT was SEK 9 (26) million. · Earnings after tax were SEK 140 (-107) million. · Earnings per share were SEK -7.70 (-15.18). Adjusted for the new capital structure and one-off costs in conjunction with the listing, earnings per share amounted to SEK 2.10 (-1.12). · The operating cash flow improved by SEK 139 million to SEK 14 (-125) million. · The net addition to the contract portfolio during the period was approximately SEK 350 million in annual net sales. CEO comments Coor continued to perform well in the second quarter of the year, and the company is reporting earnings in line with plan. Revenues grew by 9 per cent over the quarter while our operating margin (adjusted EBITA) remained unchanged at 5.0 per cent compared with the same period the year before. Cash flow improved significantly, both year on year and quarter on quarter. We are entering the second half of the year with a strong financial position. The main bright spots of the second quarter are the extension of our Nordic contract with Ericsson, one of our largest customers, and the new IFM contract that we signed with Frontica for services to Aker Solutions and other customers at Fornebu in Norway. Coupled with the new contracts that we concluded and extended in the first quarter, notably with AB Volvo (Sweden), Volvo Cars (Sweden) and Statoil (expanded IFM contract for five oil platforms outside Norway), this means that we achieved a very strong sales performance in the first six months, which will have a financial impact as contract deliveries commence in the second half of 2015. The big increase in revenues in the second quarter is due to the new contracts that were signed in 2014, particularly the contract with Statoil in Norway, our largest to date, which was rolled out gradually, reaching full volume in September 2014. This contract will have a significant impact on sales growth in our Norwegian business until September 2015. However, due to the initially higher costs for the Statoil contract, our operating margin in Norway as expected was slightly lower in the second quarter compared with the first. In our Danish business, too, sales are up year on year and the operating margin is stable. Our Swedish business continues to report high margins, although sales are down slightly, chiefly due to the termination of a major cleaning contract following a public procurement in 2014. In addition to our new contracts, one of the big events during the period was of course the listing of the company’s shares on Nasdaq Stockholm on 16 June, and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our new shareholders to Coor. A consequence of the listing is that we incurred transaction costs for the listing in the second quarter. The economic outlook in the Nordic countries is still relatively good. We are seeing good overall demand, especially in the IFM segment but also for bundled FM services and single services. Activity in the FM market is especially strong in the oil and gas industry in Norway and in the public sector throughout the Nordic region. Some of our largest customers have announced cutbacks in their operations, which will have a negative impact on volumes in the latter half of 2015, primarily in the Swedish and Norwegian operations. Temporarily this will also have a negative impact on our operating margins, further weakening the seasonally weaker third quarter slightly. On the whole the outlook for long-term sales and earnings growth in line with our targets are good. This means that over the course of an economic cycle we expect to achieve annual organic growth of 4 – 5 per cent and an annual operating margin (adjusted EBITA margin) of 5.5 per cent. With a continued focus on developing integrated facility management solutions for major customers coupled with initiatives in cleaning, company restaurant and property services, we are strengthening our position as the leading provider of FM services in the Nordic region. This means that we are in a good position to take advantage of the opportunities that arise in the Nordic FM market.

YTD: SEK -1.11 (-0.42)Cash position on June 30, 2015, of MSEK 209.1  Significant events after the reporting period IdeS Phase I data published in the scientific journal PLOS ONEFirst patient treated with IdeS and subsequently transplanted in an investigator sponsored US Phase II study at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles  CEO Statement In the second quarter of 2015, we continued to build on the good start of the year, when we took some important steps – both financially and in clinical development – to shape Hansa Medical’s future. Ultimately, we want to create a strong biopharmaceutical company with life-saving pharmaceuticals on the market. I feel certain that we are on the right track.  Our lead project IdeS has attracted a lot of attention in the international scientific community. The results from the earlier clinical Phase I trial of IdeS were published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE in July. Among other things, the study results showed that a single dose of IdeS rapidly and efficiently inactivates IgG in humans, which could make it a very attractive therapeutic approach for acute IgG driven conditions.  In June, we announced that the first patient after treatment with IdeS in a clinical Phase II study was successfully transplanted from a deceased donor. The study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of IdeS in kidney transplantation of sensitized patients. It is also aimed at identifying the appropriate dose that in the majority of patients will result in anti-HLA antibody levels acceptable for transplantation within 24 hours from dosing.  In parallel with the ongoing Phase II study in Sweden, other studies are being initiated, one of which is run by Professor Stanley Jordan, a leading expert in transplant immunology, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. It is an open-label study to assess the safety and efficacy of IdeS in eliminating donor specific antibodies and thus prevent antibody-mediated rejection in sensitized patients.  This important collaboration with Dr Jordan is a further acknowledgement that IdeS is an exciting project, quoting Dr Jordan: “IdeS has the potential to revolutionize the whole area of transplantation, especially in sensitized patients.” We are also planning for further studies in transplantation and other IgG mediated indications where there is a significant unmet medical need.  As you will see in this report, we have summarized and in more detail explained our projects and the various studies we have conducted and are conducting at the moment. We will continuously update this information on the website.  During the period, we also strengthened our scientific network. In May, we announced the formation of a US medical advisory board for IdeS in kidney transplantation. This board is connected with the previously initiated advisory board of leading transplantation experts in Europe. These advisory boards are valuable components in establishing IdeS as a potential pharmaceutical product of great importance.  Early in April, we announced that the MSEK 246 rights issue was fully subscribed, which means that we now have the means to finance the next exciting phase, the clinical development of IdeS and our other research projects. We believe that IdeS has other potential medical indications, including relatively rare and serious – even life-threatening – acute immune diseases.  We have also continued to strengthen the organisation in and around the company, in time for the planned change of market place to Nasdaq Stockholm’s main market. At the annual general meeting on 2 June, Hans Schikan was elected new board member, adding more first-class biotech experience to the board. The management was also strengthened with Steven Glazer as CMO and Eva-Maria Joed as CFO.  On November 13, 2015, we will have the honor to summon interested shareholders and research partners to a combined investor and research day in Stockholm. During this event some of the prominent US and European clinical experts we collaborate with will give us a review from their daily practice and present their view on the potential of IdeS. We will get back shortly with more details about this event and how to attend.  The development of Hansa Medical in the first half of this year shows that we are in an excellent position to build a biopharmaceutical company of lasting value with important, life-saving products.  Göran Arvidson President and CEO

Interim Report 2 2015, 1 January – 30 June

Important events after the end of the quarter: In July Cherry added strategic acquisitions to its core business · In July, Cherry acquired 71 percent of the shares in the Malta-based company Almor Holding Limited (Almor) – a leading online casino in German speaking markets. The business will be consolidated by Cherry from July 1. Cherry already has the right to the profits from May 1, and the business has developed positively during May and June. This will strengthen the cash position of Cherry with about EUR 700,000. · On July 27, Cherry-owned Game Lounge acquired a prominent Finnish affiliate’s domains and affiliate agreements. The acquisition is expected to increase EBITDA figures by more than EUR 600,000 annually, bring in more than 10,000 new depositing customers to Cherry and other operators over three years and quickly increase volumes on current Cherry brands. The acquisition is fully financed by Game Lounge operations and the deal is expected to generate ROI in less than two years. The business will be consolidated from the third quarter. · In July, Online Gaming has been developing positively with good growth and positive EBIT, also when excluding Almor. The business area is expected to show a positive EBITDA for the third quarter CEO comments on the second quarterThe second quarter showed continued strong growth and the Group’s turnover increased by 40 percent. We have improved our earnings considerably, which is a result of the growth Cherry has had primarily within Online Gaming but also because of strong improvements within Restaurant Casino. Cherry’s online business continues to grow and now represents 63 percent of group sales and is expected to grow faster than the market going forward. We see that the steps Cherry has taken, focusing on core business and supporting strategic acquisitions, is now beginning to show results. Today, Cherry’s business area Online Gaming is well positioned, with a well-functioning and flexible platform, where new products can easily be integrated and new skins added. We can therefore, with limited costs, increase both volume and profits. After the reporting period, Cherry has added some strategic acquisitions to its portfolio, partly through the acquisition of 71 percent of Almor Holding, an online casino with a leading position in the German speaking markets. The acquisition has, during the first six months, reported an EBITDA of approximately EUR 1,000,000. The acquisition will contribute strongly both in terms of increased growth and increased profits for Cherry. In addition to this Game Lounge, owned by Cherry, has acquired a leading Finnish affiliate’s domains and affiliate agreements. This is expected to increase EBITDA with more than EUR 600,000 per year and bring in more than 10,000 new depositing customers to Cherry and other operators during a three year period, rapidly increasing volumes of existing brands. If Almor Holding had been consolidated during the second quarter, the Group, as well as Online Gaming, would have reported positive EBITDA. Almor Holding and the acquired Finnish domains and affiliate agreements will be consolidated as of the third quarter. During the second quarter, Online Gaming has shown a strong growth by 61 percent, and significantly improved its earnings. Our work to improve the gaming experience, to deliver joy of playing and strengthen customer loyalty, now begins to show results. We see strong growth in mobile gaming and will continue to improve our mobile offerings. During the quarter, we launched our first white label brand, SveaCasino.com, and re-launched EuroLotto.com, now hosting the biggest lotteries in the world. Cherry currently has three licenses via Malta, Curacao, and Schleswig Holstein and intends to obtain local licenses in those markets where Cherry has a large volume or in new markets where Cherry expects a strong growth. In July, Online Gaming has been developing positively with good growth and a positive EBIT, also when excluding Almor. Cherry expects to report a positive EBITDA for the business area for the third quarter. Yggdrasil has increased its revenues by 119 percent, and signed two new contracts, including BetClic Everest Group. Yggdrasil’s roadmap for 2015 looks exciting and, during the quarter, slot games "Cyrus The Virus" and “Joker Millions” were released. Joker Millions is Yggdrasil’s first progressive jackpot game and today three operators are live, of which two went live late early in the third quarter. After the quarter, the new game "Chibeasties" was released, which has so far been a success. Yggdrasil has taken the decision to release all of the games on the new iSENSE 2.0 platform, based on HTML5, providing the opportunity to release the games simultaneously on computer, tablet and mobile, and giving the games a better and faster performance. This allows operators a greater opportunity to reach their players in connection with marketing campaigns. A proof of Yggdrasil’s success came in June, when they won "Software Rising Star" at the EGR B2B Awards. There’s much more to come with Yggdrasil, as we roll out their full library of games to operators. As new operators are deployed, additional games are launched to existing customers, and the game portfolio grows, Yggdrasil’s revenues will increase. Restaurant Casino continues to impress with a positive developments. In the second quarter, the business delivered stable growth and increased its profits by 39 percent. In July, the payroll taxes for young people were raised, which over time will affect the industry and Restaurant Casino’s profitability. The increase in payroll taxes for young people will be shared with the restaurateurs but it will also lead to more gaming locations becoming unprofitable. Therefore, a raise in stake, within Restaurant Casino, from today’s SEK 70 to SEK 200, is required. With this raise the industry could generate around 1,000 new entry-level jobs. Cherry will lobby for a stake raise. A new order is required on the Swedish gaming market. Sweden has quite rightly been taken to the European Court, after having too long delayed a re-regulation. The latest development is a new Swedish gaming legislation that will be in place by July 1, 2018. Cherry welcomes a gaming market that is open for everyone with transparent and responsible stakeholders. We want to eliminate the anachronistic and failed gaming monopoly. We want to create more jobs and compete on fair conditions. Cherry’s goal is to grow faster than the market both through acquisitions and organically, focusing on rapidly increasing profitability. Now we look forward to continue to spread joy of playing, both online and at the pub!

Michelin’s free agricultural tyre pressure calculator app is now available for iOS devices, giving even more farmers and contractors access to on-the-spot bespoke tyre pressure advice. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices, the Michelin Pressure Calculator app (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/michelin-pressure-calculator/id1022853620?mt=8) instantly works out the most appropriate tyre pressure settings for desired load and speed on any farm tractor in just three easy steps. Firstly, the user must enter the tractor’s front and rear axle load and tool weight, and then select the size of Michelin tyres fitted to both the tractor’s axles from a simple drop-down menu. Finally, a quick snap with the device’s integrated camera allows the app to calculate the precise load distribution and the length of the overhang, measured from the wheels, to define the tractor’s optimum pressure recommendations. The tyre pressure results calculated and pictures taken for each tractor can be saved in the app’s ‘My Tractor’ menu, and shared by email – ideal for sending pressure calculation results back to the office from the field. Mike Lawton, Commercial Director of Michelin’s Agricultural Division in the UK and Ireland, says: “The free pressure calculation app has been well received on Android devices, and we’re delighted to extend that same capability to iOS users. “Farmers today can enjoy a wealth of technological assistance with their work, and our development team saw a chance to make sure any tractor fitted with Michelin tyres is running at the optimum tyre pressures. Getting your pressures spot on can help reduce soil compaction and leave shallower ruts – and the fact that such a capability can sit next to a farmer’s keys in his pocket is remarkable.” The free Michelin Pressure Calculator app is available for devices with iOS 7.0 or later and Android devices (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.michelin.agpressurecalculator) in four languages: English, French, German and Spanish. For more information about the range of Michelin farm tyres available visit www.michelin-agricultural-tyres.co.uk. ends Michelin, the leading tyre company, is dedicated to sustainably improving the mobility of goods and people by manufacturing, distributing and marketing tyres for every type of vehicle.

Advanced Laser-Hybrid Welding Station Delivered to Savonia University of Applied Sciences

PEMA Welding station purchased was a part of an investment plan of laser welding from European Regional Development Fund. The bidding project defined clearly all functional requirements for the welding station. Limiting values were determined for welding seams and grooves, welding material and materials to be cut, as well as for welding thicknesses and maximum measures for work pieces. Bids were evaluated by the evaluating team, among who were Mr. Esa Jaaskelainen, R&D Manager and Project Engineers Mr. Aku Tuunainen and Kari Solehmainen. After a very agile bidding process, Savonia University decided to get PEMA laser-hybrid welding station that fulfilled not only the technical requirements, but also was the most economical solution. PEMA Laser-Hybrid Welding Station PEMA laser-hybrid welding station includes PEMA Head and Tailstock HS 1500R-1, 1-axle gantry on rails, PEMA cell control W700, PEMA WeldControl 300 and CC 350. There are also laser welding head Laser Scanning tool Precitec Scantracker, welding robot Yaskawa Motoman and handling robot, protective cover and fume extraction. Joining the R&D of Local Companies Laser technology in welding – and in particular laser-hybrid welding connected to robotized welding – is still a pretty un-used method. Savonia University aims to lower the step of various companies to utilize new high-quality and effective welding methods. There are already four mid-size companies joining the research project. The target is to study e.g. differences in welding seams of cold temperature machinery, in cases when seams have been welded by arc-welding, hybrid welding or laser welding. The seam quality will be studied from the R&D and production point of view and considering the characteristics of end products. This project has been started in the summer of 2015 and will continue up till the end of 2016, after which Savonia University will publish a final report on the study. Materials used are constructional steel, high strength steel and aluminum. ”Our target is to reach new levels in welding technology with PEMA welding station,” says Mr. Kari Solehmainen, Project Engineer in Savonia. ”We have always made our studies bearing in mind the context of application. Companies need to benefit from the studies. And companies have been very keen on participating in our projects, since the benefits are so clear.” From Practical Studies to Productive Welding By the growing knowledge of welding processes, it has become clear that welding is a science that can also be developed to more economical methods and more flexible ways in practical production. Automated welding is still left obscure to many manufacturers, or they do not know enough of its possibilities. It is, though, well known fact that increasing welding automation increases productivity and helps in labor shortage. Therefore, also Savonia University has taken the automation in welding project into their program. The welding laboratory with its modern equipment and professional staff can perform weldability studies, welding tests and development planning of complex work pieces. The university defines together with companies cost structure of welding, and estimates what kind of development actions need to be taken.

Yindi Curls Launches Crowdfunding Campaign to Fund

A passionate natural haircare expert is teaching little ones to love their locks with an online series that promotes self-esteem, self-respect and above all, self-love. Designed for parents and caregivers of kids with terrifically twisted hair, Yindi Curls is fun, fashionable and informative. To get the concept up and running founder Roxanne Wright has launched a crowdfunding campaign calling on the public to support the corkscrew cause. Wright Founder said, “Big hair deserves big imagination, not simply run of the mill products and techniques. Yindi Curls exists to celebrate all things kinky, curly, wavy, coiled, twisted, crimped and everything in-between!” While black and mixed heritage families are the primary audience, Yindi Curls is open to all parents, caregivers and kids that want to learn more about wonderfully wavy locks. The project encompasses a variety of different segments that shed light on a wealth of techniques, products and tools needed to care for natural hair. This includes video tutorials, online workshops, social media platforms and an animated book. Already, the concept has attracted attention from O2’s high profile Think Big project. As well as the £300 it secured from this application Yindi Curls is also assembling an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise the remaining money. The page will go live on September 1 2015 and will aim to secure £4,000 in 40 days. With the cash, Yindi Curls will film a series of Yindi Hair A-Z videos. The content will feature an alphabetised list of hair terms, abbreviations and phrases that are used in the natural hair care and styling sphere. Every week a short video will be posted via the Yindi Curls social media platforms. Once a month Yindi Curls will also host hair workshops that offer attendees insight into grooming tools, maintenance tips, fashion trends and more. In exchange for their generous support Yindi Curls will be offering a myriad of tiered perks. These include exclusive copies of the Yindi Curls book and doll, private screening of initial episodes, Yindi Curls merchandise and more. The concept came to light when Roxanne noticed her quartet of cousins struggling with managing their beautiful curls. The girls are of Thai and Caribbean heritage, which sees them, blessed with extremely varied hair textures that high street products simply couldn’t cater to. Inspired to share her expertise with the world, Wright launched Yindi Curls in a bid to help both parents and children learn to love their locks.

Oslo, Norway, 26 August 2015: Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANO), a company focusing on the development and commercialisation of novel targeted therapeutics in haematology and oncology, announces its results for the second quarter and half year 2015. A presentation of the results by Nordic Nanovector’s senior management team will take place today at 8:30am CEST in Oslo, details are below. Luigi Costa, CEO of Nordic Nanovector, said: “Following the great start to 2015, which saw the Company complete an upsized and oversubscribed IPO, we continue to execute the clinical development strategy for Betalutin®, our lead Antibody-Radionuclide-Conjugate (ARC), which has been designed to become an important new treatment option for patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. With funding secured, we are now making progress towards starting a pivotal Phase 2 clinical study with Betalutin® in follicular lymphoma and to initiate new clinical studies in a second NHL indication, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Both indications represent major unmet medical needs and we see great potential for Betalutin to improve on and complement existing therapeutic options.” Operational Highlights – Q2 and First half 2015 • Updated results from the now fully enrolled part 1 of the Phase 1/2 study with Betalutin® in patients with relapsed/refractory CD37+ Follicular Lymphoma (FL) were presented at 13-ICML (Lugano, Switzerland) in June. The updated data confirmed the manageable safety profile of Betalutin® and its promising efficacy. New data also highlighted that clinical responses observed are sustained, with 5 out of 7 (71%) patients still in response, and duration of response ranging from 6 to 21+ months. Other key findings were consistent with those presented at the American Society of Hematology Conference in December 2014. The ongoing Phase 1/2 study continues with the intention to provide further insight on the selection of doses for the pivotal Phase 2 study. Further updates will be given in presentations at scientific and clinical congresses. • Preparations are well underway to initiate the pivotal Phase 2 study (PARADIGME) in the second half 2015. This study has been designed to meet the regulatory filing requirements for a third line FL indication. • Initial clinical studies of Betalutin® in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma are being prepared to begin during the second half 2015. • A new Scientific Advisory Board, including experts in haematology-oncology and cancer drug development from leading academic/research institutions in the US and Europe, was established in May. • The over-allotment option, in relation to the Company’s upsized and oversubscribed Initial Public Offering (IPO) in March, was exercised in April adding a further NOK 75 million to the NOK 500 million raised in the primary offer. Total gross proceeds of the IPO were NOK 575 million (USD 73 million*) and will be used to advance the development of Betalutin® beyond first regulatory submission, planned in 2017. • Board changes in connection with the IPO: Gisela M. Schwab, M.D., Executive VP and CMO at Exelixis, Inc. was elected to the Board of Directors in March replacing Alexandra Morris, Portfolio Manager at Odin Fund Management. (* USD 1 = NOK 7.86 per 30 June 2015) Financial Highlights • Revenues for the second quarter 2015 amounted to NOK 141,961 (Q2 2014: NOK 118,143). Revenues for the first half 2015 were NOK 218,002 (1H 2014: NOK 236,604). • Net operating expenses for the quarter amounted to NOK 51.2 million (Q2 2014: NOK 15.8 million) and for the first half were NOK 87.1 million (1H 2014:  NOK 27.8 million). • Cash and cash equivalents amounted to NOK 817.1 million as of 30 June 2015, compared to NOK 781.4 million as at 31 March 2015. • Nordic Nanovector issued 17,968,750 new shares at NOK 32 in connection with the Initial Public Offering (including the Over-allotment Option), raising gross proceeds of NOK 575 million. There are in total 44,519,041 shares in issue following the issuance of the new shares. Outlook The focus of the Company in 2015 and beyond will be on the Betalutin® clinical development programme, with an aim to obtain a first regulatory approval in third line FL in 2018 and in parallel to run additional trials in second line FL and DLBCL. Activities focused on the commercialisation of Betalutin® are underway and will be increased as key stages in development are reached. Nordic Nanovector is also evaluating options for the expansion of its R&D pipeline.

Recipharm Signs Agreement with RedHill Biopharma for Manufacturing of RHB-105 for treatment of H. pylori infection

RHB-105 is a new and proprietary fixed-dose oral combination therapy of two antibiotics (amoxicillian and rifabutin) and a proton pump inhibitor (omeprazole) combined into an all-in-one oral capsule with a planned indication for treatment of H. pylori infection. In June of this year, RHB-105 successfully met its primary endpoint in its first Phase III study. This complex project straddles and integrates three of Recipharm’s manufacturing facilities making it the first project of its kind within the organization.  The FDA approved facilities in Fontaine and Pessac will manufacture the Omeprazole mini-tablets, whilst in Strangnäs the final product will be encapsulated and packaged ready for final release. In order to support this project, Recipharm will invest approximately 13M SEK (1.55M USD) in manufacturing capabilities. In addition, the Strängnäs facility will be registered with the U.S. FDA. Commercial supply is expected to commence with initial launch into the U.S. market, after regulatory approval by U.S. FDA. Supply to E.U. markets is anticipated after this upon EU regulatory approval. Erik Haeffler – VP Manufacturing services Recipharm commented “This is a fantastic example of how Recipharm has been able to offer an integrated solution to solve a complex manufacturing project. We are looking forward to working on this project and supporting a successful clinical trial and launch of RHB-105”.

About RHB-105RHB-105 is a new and proprietary fixed-dose oral combination therapy of two antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) in an all-in-one oral capsule with a planned indication for the treatment of H. pylori infection. H. pylori bacterial infection is a major cause of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, gastric cancer and mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. A first Phase III study with RHB-105 is ongoing in the U.S. with positive top-line results (the ERADICATE Hp study). The study demonstrated an overall success rate of 89.4% in eradicating H. pylori, and met its protocol-defined primary endpoint of superiority in eradication of H. pylori infection over historical standard of care efficacy levels of 70%, with high statistical significance (p<0.001). RedHill plans to conduct a second Phase III study. Additional studies may be required, subject to FDA feedback. RHB-105 has been granted Qualifying Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation by the FDA, providing a Fast-Track development pathway, as well as Priority Review status, potentially leading to a shorter review time by the FDA of an NDA, if filed. If approved, RHB-105 will also receive an additional five years of U.S. market exclusivity, on top of the standard exclusivity period, for a total of 8 years of market exclusivity.

University of North Carolina selects RayStation as its new network-wide radiation therapy treatment planning system

The University of North Carolina (UNC) recently utilized RayStation® for the first time to treat patients. Following this, two other satellite facilities have initiated commissioning of their machines for RayStation®, with the fourth set to begin soon. The selection process for a new treatment planning system (TPS) was an intense and scientific effort, with much of the UNC staff involved in performing test plans to fully assess competing systems. The project was led by Dr. Shiva Das, recently arrived at UNC from the Duke Cancer Center in Durham, North Carolina. “As our sole treatment planning system, PLUNC served the center well for several decades. With programmers employed by UNC, we had the opportunity to customize the software to fit our workflow and planning needs,” said Dr. Das, Chief Medical Physicist at UNC. “However, we also saw the future of treatment planning placing more demands on the TPS. In order to continue to provide the highest level of care to our patients, we knew we needed to team up with a partner that was forward-thinking and had more resources. We are very confident that RaySearch Laboratories is that partner.”  The main campus was the first to clinically use RayStation®, followed closely by other hospitals in the UNC network: Rex Healthcare and affiliates in Raleigh, North Carolina, McCreary Cancer Center in Lenoir, North Carolina, and High Point Regional Hospital in High Point, North Carolina.  High Point Regional Hospital is next to go live using RayStation®, with the other facilities to follow. “Implementing a new TPS requires full buy-in along with an enthusiastic and dedicated team, which UNC has. RayStation® brings a wider variety of planning techniques for our patients and new tools for our dosimetry staff to efficiently create the most advanced and customized plans,” concludes Dr. Das. “The University of North Carolina is a model for what can be achieved when people from multiple organizations, in a large-scale setting, come together and work toward a common goal.  Dr. Das and his team bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table that can support future development of RayStation®,” says Marc Mlyn, President of RaySearch Americas, Inc. “We are thrilled to have UNC as a partner to advance cancer treatment moving forward,” he concludes. “We are extremely proud of the trust placed in RaySearch by the University of North Carolina. It is a major step for such an important multi-site center to replace an in-house system in use for more than 30 years, but we will make sure that is a decision they will not regret,” says Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch Laboratories AB. About The University of North Carolina UNC’s healthcare motto is “Leading, Teaching, Caring”. The university has a longstanding and strong tradition of leadership and innovation in the field of radiation oncology. The main campus offers the following services: external beam radiation therapy with three state-of-the-art linear accelerators offering intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image guidance, one TomoTherapy® unit, one CyberKnife ® Robotic Radiosurgery treatment machine and Brachytherapy. UNC serves as the specialty oncology referral center for the entire state of North Carolina, with eighteen radiation oncologists providing services at the following treatment centers. · NC Cancer Hospital in Chapel Hill · Rex Cancer Center in Raleigh · Rex Cancer Center of Wakefield · Smithfield Radiation Oncology · Clayton Radiation Oncology · Highpoint Radiation Oncology · McCreary Cancer Center Radiation Oncology

Rovio sharpens focus on core businesses

Rovio Entertainment today announced plans to restructure and concentrate its activities around three primary business areas: games, media and consumer products. As a result of these plans, the company will begin employee negotiations on up to 260 redundancies. The negotiations apply to the whole organization, excluding those working on the production of the The Angry Birds Movie in the United States and Canada. “While we have gathered good momentum this year, especially with the launch of the Angry Birds 2 game -- downloaded nearly 50 million times in its first month of release -- fundamental changes are needed to ensure Rovio succeeds in its global ambitions to be the leading entertainment company with mobile games at its heart,” says Rovio’s CEO Pekka Rantala. “This is personally a difficult decision. However, it is certain that a leaner and more agile Rovio is absolutely necessary to move forward and take the company to new successes in the future. We will work with and support all our employees through this period of change.” “Rovio’s growth and eagerness to explore new business opportunities over the past few years has been exceptional,” Rantala adds. “As a result, we did too many things. In our current financial condition we must now put focus on where we are at our best: in creating magnificent gaming experiences, in producing an amazing animation movie and in delighting our fans with great products.”

Evolution Gaming: Interim Report January-June 2015

Second quarter of 2015 (Q2 2014) · Revenues increased by 55% to EUR 17.9 million (11.5) · Profit for the period amounted to EUR 5.9 million (2.9) · Earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.16 (0.08) · Adjusted EBITDA increased by 89% to EUR 7.7 million (4.1), corresponding to a margin of 43% (35) Events during the second quarter of 2015 · Mobile growth in excess of 250% year-on-year · On-premise studio in Belgium with the majority of the country’s online casinos as customers · Secured rights to games and side bets from Games Marketing · Evolution wins EGR Live Casino Supplier of the Year for the sixth year in a row Events following the balance sheet date · Agreement with Genting Alderney · Live casino launched for Adjarabet and Marathonbet CEO Jens von Bahr's comments: Evolution’s strong performance continues and we again noted record revenues and earnings for the most recent quarter. EBITDA amounted to EUR 7.7 million, corresponding to a margin of 43%. We are seeing very strong growth in the market driven by increasing engagement by operators and more end users who discover live casino, particularly using mobile devices. In the second quarter, 24% of the operators’ gaming revenues via the Evolution platform were generated by mobile devices compared to 11% last year. In absolute numbers the increase was more than 250%, still without cannibalising other platforms. One of the most important events in the quarter was the agreement with Casino de Spa in Belgium, where we have built a local studio in accordance with the country’s new gaming regulations. We currently have six customers who via land-based casinos hold online casino licences from the Belgian Gaming Commission, giving us a virtual monopoly position in the market. In addition, we have a large number of customers who hold licences to operate online gaming arcades. As at our other on-premise studios, gaming is conducted locally, while software, support and surveillance are handled through Riga. The Belgian presence is well in line with our growth strategy of being the first Live Casino provider in regulated markets. By means of the studio, we have established significant entry barriers for competitors and, in terms of revenue, Belgium is expected to become our largest regulated market after the UK. Beyond our focus on regulated markets, qualitative gaming content is also key to our continued growth. During the quarter, we secured the rights to additional table games and side bets from Games Marketing’s proprietary product portfolio. The games are provided with certain preferential rights and further strengthen our leading product offering. Several of our customers have already decided to launch the new games to their end users, and we expect to go live with the first one in November. Finally, I would also like to highlight the fact that Evolution was named Live Casino Supplier of the Year for the sixth time at the EGR B2B Awards in London in June. We have won this accolade every year since the awards began in 2010 – very strong recognition of the quality of our offering. By the time this report is published, we will have progressed halfway through the third quarter. To date, we have among others signed an agreement with Genting Alderney, the online division of world leading casino operator Genting Group, providing excellent potential to capitalise on the trend whereby land-based casinos with strong brands are strengthening their online presence. In the UK alone Genting operates more than 40 land-based casinos, and I see good opportunities to develop our partnership over time. We are also continuing our drive in product innovation and, during the quarter, recruited Todd Haushalter as our new Chief Product Officer – a prestigious recruitment in the global casino industry. He will be a member of the management team for our operational entity in Malta, which, in recent months, has also been reinforced with several other influential individuals, including CEO Martin Carlesund. For the third quarter we can also note that the historical seasonality with lower activity during the summer months is no longer to be seen. Evolution has a strong tailwind and the conditions to continue strengthening our leading position in Live Casino are exceptionally good. Going forward, we will continue to focus fully on further distancing ourselves from our competitors in terms of critical factors such as product range, operational excellence and regulated markets.

Atlas Copco supports water project in Malawi

Starting October 2015, Water for All will finance the installation of infrastructure and facilities that promote clean water, sanitation and hygiene in about a dozen villages and communities in southeastern Malawi, benefiting some 28 000 locals. The project, done in cooperation with non-profit organization ADRA, is expected to be completed by October 2018. It is financed through donations to the Peter Wallenberg Water for All Fund, where Atlas Copco is one of the larger contributors. “Atlas Copco is delighted that the many contributions made to the Peter Wallenberg Water for All Fund will be turned into true life-changing benefits for thousands of people in Malawi,” said Ronnie Leten, Atlas Copco’s President and CEO. The Malawi project was chosen as Water for All has previously worked in the area with good results. Malawi is also in the region where Peter Wallenberg Sr. was active when he worked for Atlas Copco in Africa. Water for All is Atlas Copco’s main community engagement initiative. Run by employees, the mission of the organization is to provide people in need with long-term access to clean drinking water. Through voluntary donations, boosted by the Atlas Copco Group, this non-profit organization has so far provided clean drinking water to more than 1.5 million people.  Water for All has representation in more than 40 countries and supports projects all over the world. It was founded in Sweden by Atlas Copco employees 31 years ago, on August 22, 1984.  To learn more about Water for All and the Peter Wallenberg Water for All Fund, please visit http://www.water4all.org/us/. 

The new normal

The US is developing in line with expectations, despite the turmoil in emerging economies. New jobs are being created as the economy expands. Against that background, the Fed is on track for a first interest rate hike this year. However, the timing is still uncertain. Although recent labour market data seems to provide firm backing for such a move, the Fed will still want to feel reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its target over the medium term. Regardless of when the Fed decides to hike, interest rates are likely to be capped at low levels in a historical perspective. The eurozone faces stronger headwinds than we expected before the summer, resulting in a weaker outlook for the second half of the year. Growth in exports and corporate earnings has been on the low side. Apparently, the deteriorating conditions in many emerging economies have partly offset the positive effects of the weaker euro. Monetary policy is supportive and credit growth is starting to improve, but interest rates will have to remain extremely low as there is no room for fiscal stimulus. The case against the euro remains. The newsflow out of China has lately focused on the turmoil in the giant economy’s financial system. Most significantly, the weakening of the renminbi has had ripple effects throughout the world. Despite the correction in the equity market, we think that the authorities will be able to manage to pull off a soft landing. Growth will decline gradually over the next couple of years. Other larger emerging economies are in varying degrees of trouble. Commodity producers like Brazil and Russia are currently in recession. The longer-term outlook is also gloomy, particularly in Russia’s case given its protracted standoff with the west. India is the only member of the BRIC quartet that shines at the moment. Closer to home, the convergence plays in Central Europe remain on track, while Turkey, a country with few excuses, is facing major challenges. The Nordic countries continue to be a rather diverse group. Denmark seems to have hit a soft spot after almost two years with continuous expansion. Low productivity growth, a lack of investment, high household debt and lacklustre growth in many important export markets are holding back growth. Finland is stuck in a vicious cycle, where weak competitiveness and poor corporate profitability are threatening to turn into a chronic problem of very low trend growth. Due to the fall in oil prices, the Norwegian economy has deteriorated at a faster pace than expected. Norges Bank is likely to cut its policy rate next month as a result. In Sweden, the economy is shifting into a higher gear and is likely to approach a cyclical peak next year. While exports will grow robustly on the back of a recovery in the eurozone, domestic demand is expected to be the main driver. Given that demand is likely to expand at a faster pace than the underlying productive capacity, a positive output gap will gradually emerge. Domestic inflationary pressures are modest for the time being, but will play a more salient role ahead. However, as the Riksbank likely has an inflationary bias, the policy rate is unlikely to change until the end of next year.

Results from a clinical multicenter trial with HBP-assay published in Critical Care Medicine

The study results show that the diagnostic method for assessing Heparin Binding Protein (HBP) predicts severe sepsis with significantly higher accuracy than other biomarkers available today. The study demonstrates that the HBP-assay has the potential to become a significant tool in helping predicting severe sepsis at emergency departments and infectious disease clinics. For open access to the publication, please visit: http://journals.lww.com/ccmjournal/Abstract/publishahead/Heparin_Binding_Protein_Measurement_Improves_the.97183.aspx “The results from the IMPRESSED study are promising and Axis-Shield is developing the HBP testing market globally and is working to attract major global IVD (In Vitro Diagnostics) players as potential sublicenses. In order to further strengthen the clinical validity of HBP-assay, Axis-Shield is currently coordinating additional clinical trials with HBP-assay in the US, Europe, China, South Korea and India. In addition, we are also developing alternative versions of the HBP-assay for improved routine clinical applicability.” states Anil Vasishta, Managing Director, Axis-Shield Diagnostics ”The multicenter trial indicates that the HBP-assay has the potential to become a valuable tool for Emergency Departments and Infectious Disease clinics for prediction of severe sepsis.. Hundreds of thousands of lives can potentially be saved and costly intensive care may be cut through the prediction of severe sepsis and early treatment”, states Göran Arvidson, CEO of Hansa Medical AB. Background to the studyThe HBP-assay is a novel diagnostic method developed and patented by Hansa Medical to help predict severe sepsis in patients with infectious disease symptoms.  Hundreds of thousands of patients die every year due to severe sepsis as a complication to infections like urinary tract infection and pneumonia. These infections can be effectively treated with antibiotics in order to prevent progression to severe sepsis although early prediction of risk patients is crucial for successful treatment. A seemingly stable infectious disease patient can within hours develop severe sepsis as manifested through clinical symptoms like organ failure and circulatory failure. Early prediction and treatment of risk patients is key to prevent death from severe sepsis. Study resultsThe prospective clinical multicenter trial (IMPRESSED-study) involved 759 patients admitted to Emergency Departments in Sweden and the US with infectious disease symptoms. 674 patients were diagnosed with an infection, of whom 487 did not have organ dysfunction at enrollment. Of these 487 patients, 141 (29%) developed severe sepsis within 72 hours. 78% of these patients had elevated levels plasma-HBP prior to developing severe sepsis. HBP clearly outperformed those biomarkers available today for diagnosing or predicting severe sepsis including Procalcitonin, White blood cell count (WBC), CRP, Lactate. Procalcitonin was increased in 52.5% of the patients developing severe sepsis, WBC in 57.4%, CRP in 59.3%, and Lactate in 28.1%. Samples from a Canadian validation cohort of 104 patients confirmed the results of the Sweden/USA study. The diagnostic accuracy for HBP in predicting severe sepsis in the Canadian cohort was even higher than in the Sweden/US cohort. The sensitivity was 78% and the specificity was 95% in predicting severe sepsis among infected patients in the Canadian cohort. Commercial development of HBP-assayHansa Medical and Axis-Shield Diagnostic Limited signed a collaborative agreement in 2009 for the commercialization of the HBP-assay.

The University of Florida Health Proton Therapy Institute selects RayStation

UF Health Proton Therapy Institute is a 98,000 square-foot radiation medical facility that houses conventional photon radiation therapy in addition to proton therapy. At full capacity, the facility can treat up to 150 patients per day with the most advanced technology available to treat and cure cancer. Since opening in 2006, some 6,000 patients have been treated, many of whom are pediatric patients from around the world seeking the long-term benefits of proton therapy. The selection of the RayStation® treatment planning system will support workflow needs of today and the advanced needs of Pencil Beam Scanning (PBS), also known as Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT). Dr. Zuofeng Li, Physics Director and Professor at the University of Florida College of Medicine said, “Our goal when searching for a treatment planning system for IMPT was to also identify a product that could be utilized for all of our planning needs. We found RayStation® to have superior planning tools for IMPT in terms of efficiency and quality of plans, as well as other new technologies that could help our photon planning teams. We believe features such as multi-criteria optimization (MCO), fallback planning, deformable registration and adaptive therapy will all have a significant impact on our daily planning workflow. All of this, combined with ultrafast calculation speed, made RayStation® the best choice for us.” “The advanced technologies found within the RayStation® software are a perfect match for both the advanced and more traditional planning needs found at the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute,” says Marc Mlyn, President of RaySearch Americas, Inc. “RaySearch is committed to offering best-in-class technologies for all treatment modalities, including the most advanced IMPT.

Oldest Pharaonic mummy from Museum of Florence finally has a face

Forensic techniques by international scientists has led to the facial reconstruction of the oldest preserved mummy in the Egyptian Museum of Florence. The research, led by Dr Matteo Borrini, forensic anthropologist and principal lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), applied forensic techniques on the remains to reconstruct the features of the mummy known as ‘Kent.’    The mummy was a high ranking person, a dignitary or a priest, of the XVIII dynasty (the same as Tutankhamun and Nefertiti). Until now only his name was known.  Dr Borrini devised the anatomy approximation from the skeletal structures of his skull and the reconstruction was revealed  at the International Congress of Egyptologists. Dr Matteo Borrini commented: "The research allows us to use the forensic investigation techniques for archaeological purposes to sketch the portrait of men who died millennia ago. The bust I made presents the scientific methodology in a language compatible with the needs of the museum and in harmony with the other artefacts on display.” A CT scan of the mummy revealed details that ‘Kent’ was 50 years old when he died and allowed for an exact copy of his skull to be modelled so that the individual muscles of the face could be produced.  The bandages of the mummy were never removed. The procedure adopted is the "protocol of Manchester", a standardised investigative method that Dr Borrini has already used for other reconstructions both archaeological and during his work as a criminal expert. Notes to editors CT scan and data analysis: Dr Lapo Sali (University of Florence) and Dr Sara Savasta (Leone spa). The hair, that could not be deduced from any anatomical remains, have been designed by Dr Borrini, in collaboration with Professor Donatella Lippi (University of Florence) and the Director of the Egyptian Museum Dr  Maria Cristina Guidotti, taking into account both the dynasty that the social status of the mummy. The International Congress of Egyptologists is organised by the Superintendence for Cultural Heritage of Tuscany in collaboration with the University of Florence and the Cultural Association CAMNES.

See page 3. CEO StatementTrends in sales and operating income in the quarter were similar to those in the first quarter with good sales growth and improved adjusted operating income and margins in Sweden and Denmark compensating for a weak performance in Norway. Overall, Group net sales grew by 2 percent at constant exchange rates and the adjusted operating income increased slightly from the previous year. Sales in Sweden benefitted from good market demand, strong performance of recently launched innovative products and higher sales of chilled products over frozen leading to an improved mix. The adjusted operating income and margin improved substantially, with further improvements in operating efficiencies. Sales and adjusted operating income in Denmark were positively impacted by higher export volumes at firmer prices. The margin also benefited from further cost savings in operations. The domestic Danish market was characterised by continued pressure on pricing. The Norwegian retail market for chicken products continued to be weak and declined by 4 percent* compared to the second quarter last year. This was an improvement from the first quarter when the market declined by 13 percent*. Stock levels were high across the industry. Operating margin for the Norwegian operation was negatively impacted by promotional activity and a higher proportion of sales of frozen products. We continue to believe that the market will recover but timing is uncertain. Deliveries to Coop Norway under the new supply agreement, which also includes the stores acquired from ICA Norway, started as of August. Deliveries will be phased in gradually as the newly acquired stores are absorbed into Coop. On 25 May we finalised the acquisition of Huttulan’s factory and business in Finland, which began operations in May 2014. Huttulan has developed a premium concept that is sold to retail and foodservice customers. Finland is an attractive market for chicken products with many similarities to the Swedish market. Integration of the business, now called Kronfågel Oy, is proceeding according to plan and we have started to share best practice from within the Group to improve performance in different areas. The factory is operating at less than 20 percent of total capacity and will be loss-making this year. We are making progress in organising new farming capacity to increase deliveries from next year. On 15 June, we signed an agreement to acquire Lagerbergs, the third largest producer of chicken products in Sweden with sales of approximately MSEK 300. The acquisition is subject to approval by the Swedish Competition Authority. The acquisition would improve our capacity to supply the growing Swedish market and would also create opportunities to improve efficiency in both our facility in Valla, Sweden and the Lagerbergs factory.

Arise and other producers do not support a separate new system for offshore wind power

A group of leading Swedish wind power companies and landowners believe a separate new support system for offshore wind power is an expensive as well as unnecessary way to increase the share of renewable energy in Sweden. The same benefits can easily be achieved through onshore wind power. With a strong electricity grid, a sparsely populated country and good wind resources, Sweden has every opportunity to increase the expansion of onshore wind power. The same investment at sea would increase the bill by hundreds of billions of kronor – a cost which would ultimately be borne by Sweden’s electricity customers. And this entirely without need. A transition to a non-fossil fuel economy is of course desirable. Currently by far the fastest and most cost-effective road there is to continue to invest in Swedish onshore wind power. Yet it is imperative that Swedish policymakers quickly decide how to revise of the current support system for renewable energy, known as the electricity certificate system, and also decide to raise the level of ambition for the continued roll-out of cost-effective, non-fossil fuel electricity.

Visiting Professor at Karolinska Institutet cleared from suspicions of scientific misconduct

“Now that we have examined the allegations of scientific misconduct in all seven indicted articles, we have found that they contain certain flaws but nothing that can be considered scientific misconduct,” says Vice-Chancellor Anders Hamsten. The complaints against Professor Macchiarini were lodged by four physicians at Karolinska University Hospital who were themselves part of the research environment and, in some cases, co-authors of the articles that were reported for scientific misconduct. The complaints were submitted in June, August and September 2014, prompting an inquiry by Karolinska Institutet’s Vice-Chancellor in accordance with the provisions of the Higher Education Ordinance and the university’s own rules for dealing with cases of alleged scientific misconduct. The first paper describes the manufacture of a synthetic oesophageal prosthesis and its functionality on transplantation into a rat. The concerns raised by the complainants include the conclusions of the functionality of this prosthesis and the interpretation of CT scans.  The six other papers describe transplantations of a synthetic tracheal prosthesis in humans, namely three patients with tracheal diseases who were beyond the help of conventional surgery and who were given synthetic trachea coated with their own bone-marrow derived stem cells at Karolinska University Hospital. Here, the complainants pointed out that the results concerning the patients’ clinical progress as expressed in the papers did not match the patients’ medical records as kept at Karolinska University Hospital, and that there was no evidence that a synthetic tracheal transplant can develop into a functional airway. They also questioned the claim that the first patient had suffered a relapse of his tracheal cancer and that surgery was therefore necessary. As part of the inquiry, a statement of opinion was requested from Professor emeritus Bengt Gerdin, who, on examining the documents and information included in the complaint, Professor Macchiarini’s initial response and the medical records from Karolinska University Hospital, submitted his conclusion in mid-May that the accused was indeed guilty of scientific misconduct. Following the detailed report submitted by Professor Gerdin, Professor Macchiarini and his co-authors submitted over 1,000 pages of comments and documents, including medical records from the first patient’s doctors inIceland, showing that on the crucial points, the description of his condition given in the articles is correct. “Bengt Gerdin’s examination was extremely valuable for the inquiry, but the documents to which he had access lacked significant data on the pre- and postoperative status of two of the patients,” says Professor Hamsten. “The comments sent in by Professor Macchiarini and his co-authors have had a significant influence on how the case has been assessed. Now that we have all the relevant material on hand, we have a much clearer picture of what happened.” In their complaint, the four physicians also criticised Professor Macchiarini for not having obtained a permit from the regional Ethical Review Board and the Swedish Medical Products Agency before the operation. However, Karolinska Institutet did not examine this issue in its inquiry since the Swedish Research Council’s definition of scientific misconduct does not cover breaches of the Ethical Review Act and the Medicinal Products Act. At the same time, Karolinska Institutet concluded that a decision to perform the three operations was taken by the hospital. “Karolinska University Hospital made the decision to operate following a transparent process and in what it saw as the absence of alternative therapeutic solutions,” says Professor Hamsten. “These decisions did not address research aspects.” The inquiry shows that the interaction between Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital has not functioned satisfactorily, and the Vice-Chancellor’s decision promises improvements to procedures, regulations and support structures for clinical trials and clinical therapy research. The line between clinical application and research when it comes to experimental therapy will need to be better defined, and clearer guidelines for academic research and academic healthcare will be drafted. Professor Macchiarini has also been instructed to submit errata to the journals that published some of the scientific papers to clarify and rectify the failings that the inquiry has brought to light. “Some aspects of Paolo Macchiarini’s research do not meet our high quality standards,” says Professor Hamsten. “We will now be remedying the deficiencies our inquiry uncovered with him, the heads of his department and representatives fromKarolinskaUniversityHospital.” For further information, contact:Claes Keisu, press officer Karolinska InstitutetTel: + 46 8-524 838 92Mobile: + 46 76-215 29 62Email: claes.keisu@ki.se
