ASCO, ASTRO and SSO update guideline on postmastectomy radiotherapy

ALEXANDRIA, Va, ARLINGTON, Va, ROSEMONT, Ill. — Three leading national cancer organizations today issued a joint clinical practice guideline update for physicians treating women with breast cancer who have undergone a mastectomy. The update provides additional considerations for physicians to determine which patients might benefit from postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT). “We still don’t have a single, validated formula that can determine who needs PMRT, but we hope that the research evidence summarized in this guideline update will help doctors and patients make more informed decisions,” said Stephen B. Edge, MD, co-chair of the Expert Panel that developed the guideline update. “We also hope that this publication will spur more research into patient and tumor characteristics that predict risk of recurrence after mastectomy.” The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) together published the new guideline update in their respective journals, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Practical Radiation Oncology and Annals of Surgical Oncology.  “In an era of personalized medicine, we want to be sure that we offer the right care to the right patients. Thanks to advances in systemic therapy, fewer women need radiation therapy after a mastectomy,” said Abram Recht, MD, co-chair of the Expert Panel that developed the guideline update. “This means we can be more selective when recommending this treatment to our patients.” The guideline update states that there is strong evidence showing that PMRT reduces the risk of breast cancer recurrence.  It provides evidence-based recommendations for the use of postmastectomy radiotherapy in: patients with T1-2 tumors (tumors smaller than 5 cm) and 1 to 3 positive lymph nodes; patients undergoing neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NAST); and patients with T1-2 tumors and a positive sentinel node biopsy.  The Expert Panel also addressed technical aspects of radiotherapy, such as the optimal extent of regional nodal irradiation (RNI). “For many women, PMRT reduces the risk of local and regional failure, but physicians must weigh this benefit with the considerable side effects associated with this treatment,” said Bruce G. Haffty, MD, immediate past chair of ASTRO’s Board of Directors. “This cooperative guideline underscores the complexity inherent in decisions related to PMRT, as well as the importance of clinical judgment in treatment planning.” To develop this guideline update, an Expert Panel reviewed relevant literature published between January 2001 and July 2015. This included a meta-analysis of 22 clinical trials published in 2014, which provides evidence that PMRT is highly effective at preventing local breast cancer recurrence.   Key recommendations of the guideline update are as follows: ·Decision to use PMRT should involve providers from all treating disciplines as well as the patient. Doctors and patients should discuss risks and benefits to determine the best treatment approach for the patient. ·For women with T1-2 breast cancer and 1-3 positive lymph nodes, PMRT reduces the risk of recurrence and breast cancer death. However, for some patients with a low risk of recurrence, the potential complications of PMRT may outweigh the benefit. ·When making decisions on recommending PMRT, doctors should consider patient and tumor characteristics that may diminish the benefit of PMRT or increase the risk of complications. ·Patients with T1-2 tumors with a positive sentinel node biopsy who elect to omit axillary lymph node dissection should receive PMRT only if there is already sufficient information to justify its use without needing to know that additional axillary nodes are involved. ·Patients with axillary nodal involvement that persists following neoadjuvant systemic therapy should receive PMRT. ·Radiation should generally be given to both the internal mammary nodes and the supraclavicular-axillary apical nodes in addition to the chest wall or reconstructed breast when PMRT is used for patients with positive axillary lymph nodes. “This guideline highlights the need to individualize therapy as well as identifies areas where more research is needed,” said Monica Morrow, MD, FACS, the SSO representative on the Expert Panel that developed the guideline update. “It emphasizes that we are moving beyond a simplistic one size fits all approach to more tailored therapy which will improve benefits for patients.” View the complete guideline in the following journals: ·Annals of Surgical Oncology (http://link.springer.com/10.1245/s10434-016-5558-8) ·Practical Radiation Oncology (http://www.practicalradonc.org/article/S1879-8500(16)30159-X/fulltext) · Journal of Clinical Oncology (http://drives.asco.org/commpi/CommPi%20T%20Drive/QUALITY/GUIDELINES/2016/Postmastectomy%20Radiotherapy%20Update/Press%20Release/jco.ascopubs.org/lookup/doi/10.1200/JCO.2016.69.1188) Media Contacts · ASCO: Amanda Narod (amanda.narod@asco.org), 571-483-1795 · ASTRO: Liz Gardner (liz.gardner@astro.org), 703-286-1600 · SSO: Chris Martin (cmartin@davidjamesgroup.com), 630-670-2745 ABOUT ASCO Founded in 1964, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) is committed to making a world of difference in cancer care.

Softwood lumber prices have trended upward during the first six months of 2016 because of higher demand and a weaker dollar

An excerpt from the newly released market report Wood Resource Quarterly. For subscription to the full 52-page report, please visit www.woodprices.com Global Lumber Trade Demand for softwood lumber has gone up in many markets around the world in 2016, resulting in a substantial increase in global lumber trade. With very few exceptions, the major importing countries have imported more lumber during the first six months this year than they did during the same period in 2015, according to estimates by the Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ). Higher demand and a weaker US dollar resulted in generally higher lumber prices (in US dollar terms) worldwide in the first half of 2016 than in the 1H/15.  Lumber markets – North America Demand for softwood lumber in the US has expanded continually so far in 2016. During the first five months of 2016, lumber consumption was 14.2% higher than during the same period in 2015, according to WWPA. The increased demand was predominantly met with higher production by sawmills in the US South, a substantial rise in import volumes from Canada (up 40%) and incrementally more shipments from Europe. Lumber prices in the US have trended upward for most of 2016 with prices in August this year reaching their highest levels since early 2015. Lumber markets – Northern Europe Weaker currencies in the Nordic countries have resulted in more competitive prices for lumber in 2015 and 2016. Prices in 2016 are among the lowest they have been since 2005. Finland is on pace to increase export volumes for the seventh consecutive year in 2016. During the first five months, the export shipments were up almost 15% as compared to the same period in 2015. The biggest increases have been to non-European countries including Egypt, Japan, China and Saudi Arabia, reports the WRQ. Lumber markets – China Lumber import prices to China from the two major supplying countries, Russia and Canada, have converged during 2016. Last year in July, Canadian lumber was sold at a premium of almost $40/m3 over Russian lumber. Despite lower prices for Canadian lumber, the country has not gained any market share this year - rather the opposite. In 2016, Canadian supply has counted for 26% of the total import volumes, while Russia’s share has been approximately 59%. Back in 2013, Canada was the major supplier and accounted for about 40% of the imports. Lumber market – Japan Housing starts in Japan have trended upward during the first six months of 2016 with wooden housing starts being 3.8% higher this year than during the same period in 2015. Demand for lumber has followed a similar trend. Higher demand for wood has partly been met by an increase in the importation of lumber with the biggest increases coming from Austria, Finland and Sweden. Prices for both imported and domestic lumber have not changed much in Yen terms over the past year, but with the strengthening Japanese currency, lumber prices in dollar terms have rapidly gone up since the beginning of the year. Lumber market – Russia The export shipments from Russia have continued to go up in 2016, with volumes during the first six months reaching 12% higher levels than in the same period in 2015. By far the biggest increases in exports have been to Asian markets. Very low production costs in Eastern Russia have resulted in major inroads for Russian sawmills in the Chinese market at the expense of primarily Canadian sawmills. Lumber export prices in Russia have declined the past few years, but not at the same rate as prices for sawlogs, and as a result sawmills in Siberia have become some of the most profitable sawmills in the world. Global lumber, sawlog and pulpwood market reporting is included in the 52-page quarterly publication Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ). The report, which was established in 1988 and has subscribers in over 30 countries, tracks sawlog, pulpwood, wood chip, lumber and pellet prices, trade and market developments in most key regions around the world.

Installation initiated for Elekta’s high-field MR-adaptive linear accelerator at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center

MILWAUKEE, September 20, 2016 – Elekta (EKTA-B.ST), its MRI technology partner Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) and the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network recently began installation of an investigational high-field MR-adaptive linear accelerator (MR-linac) system at the Froedtert & MCW Clinical Cancer Center at Froedtert Hospital, eastern Wisconsin’s only academic medical center. The Clinical Cancer Center, part of the Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network, is the second U.S. and fifth global site to install the MR-linac system, which is already under functional evaluation at The Netherlands Cancer Institute; University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands; The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston Texas; and the Institute of Cancer Research, working with its clinical partner The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in London. In 2013, the Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network joined Elekta’s MR-linac research consortium, a global collaboration of institutions focused on uniting leaders in radiation oncology, MR-imaging and physics. The mission of the consortium is to investigate that MR-linac technology can lead to improved patient outcomes for existing radiation therapy indications and extend radiation therapy for additional indications. “For more than a decade, the Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network has been at the forefront of the evolution of radiation therapy with the goal of providing more personalized treatments,” said Christopher Schultz, MD, FACR, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology, at the Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network. “The foundational work we’ve been doing with MRI-based treatment planning strongly positions us to be among the experts invited to help develop this latest milestone in treating cancer.” Elekta’s MR-linac integrates, for the first time, an ultramodern radiotherapy system and a high-field MRI scanner with novel software. It enables a physician to capture diagnostic quality images of tumors and surrounding tissues during radiation therapy delivery. The MR-linac is designed to improve targeting of tumor tissue while reducing exposure of healthy tissue to radiation. It could allow physicians to precisely target a tumor and lock onto it during treatment, even when tumor tissue is moving during treatment or changes shape, location, size or composition between treatment sessions. Elekta and its global collaborators overcame significant engineering hurdles to demonstrate the technology’s feasibility. Previously, experts in the field thought it nearly impossible to combine MRI and linear accelerator devices because the powerful MRI magnets could interfere with radiation beams. “While we already have significant evidence supporting the potential of MR-linac, fully realizing its practical applications will require rigorous evaluation in real world clinical settings,” said J. Frank Wilson, MD, FACR, FASTRO, radiation oncologist; Bernard and Miriam Peck Family Professor of Radiation Oncology with Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network. “Initially, we will focus on establishing clinical protocols and refining methods for data collection and analysis in pancreatic cancer, a deadly disease with limited treatment options. We are optimistic that MR-linac will be a critical advancement in patient care and ultimately, improve outcomes in this and other types of cancers.” “We appreciate the continued guidance and support from the Froedtert & MCW Cancer Network and our other consortium members, who have been instrumental in advancing the development of high-field MR-linac,” said Kevin Brown, Elekta’s Global Vice President of Scientific Research. “This installation marks the latest milestone in our rapid progress to make this technology a clinical reality, and we believe MR-linac will transform how radiotherapy is delivered and establish new standards of care for difficult to treat cancers.” "Philips is a pioneer and leader in image guided minimally invasive therapies, a fast growing field because of the benefits for patients, hospitals and health systems," said Rob Cascella, CEO Diagnosis & Treatment Businesses at Philips. “We have been expanding our efforts in interventional oncology, as we are convinced that image-guided therapies will have a positive, transformational impact on oncology. With the combined expertise of Elekta, Philips and other consortium partners such as Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network, we are entering an exciting new phase in exploring the potential of image-guided radiotherapy as a game changer in cancer treatment.”  Consortium members are currently engaged in various stages of evaluation of the technology and are collaborating to establish new clinical protocols and develop methods for data collection and analysis. The consortium, which will gather for an annual meeting at the Clinical Cancer Center September 29-30, is evaluating how this new radiation treatment technology may improve care for patients with prominent and deadly cancers including brain, breast, cervix, esophagus, lung, oropharynx, pancreas, prostate and rectal cancers. Elekta’s MR-linac is a work in progress and not available for sale or distribution. # # # For further information, please contact:Gert van Santen, Group Vice President Corporate Communications, Elekta ABTel: +31 653 561 242, e-mail: gert.vansanten@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Tobias Bülow, Director Financial Communication, Elekta ABTel: +46 722 215 017, email: tobias.bulow@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Steve Klink, Philips Group CommunicationsTel: +31 610 888 824, e-mail: steve.klink@philips.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Gerry Steele, Media Relations Associate, Froedtert & the Medical College of WisconsinTel: +1 414-805-3057, e-mail: gerry.steele@froedtert.comTime zone: CT: Central Time The above information is such that Elekta AB (publ) shall make public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Cantargia prepares intensified development strategy and capital raising

Inclusion of combination therapies in the initial clinical study of CAN04 "Cantargia’s decision to increase the level of ambition in the CAN04 project is among the most important and the most intensified in the company's history. This marks a major step to enhance the value of the CAN04 project and take greater advantage of the potential around the target IL1RAP (Interleukin 1 Receptor Associated Protein). I feel enthusiastic about the opportunities that open up with our intensified development strategy", says Göran Forsberg, CEO of Cantargia. The decision has been taken in consultation with international key opinion leaders in the field of solid tumors, and it represents a significantly increased level of ambition in the initial stage of the clinical studies of Cantargia’s product candidate CAN04 against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pancreatic cancer. By expanding the study to include combination therapies – where CAN04 is combined with existing standard treatment – Cantargia will receive significantly more data, which allows the company to accelerate the overall development of CAN04. This improves the conditions for a partnership of CAN04. Cancer treatment today is often some form of combination treatment, and in view of the good safety and unique mechanism, CAN04 can potentially be a good substance to combine with other treatments. The clinical study protocol is still under development. It will be based on an adaptive design which means increased flexibility during the trial. The protocol will provide relevant data on combination therapy and significantly more information than initially planned. During 2017 Cantargia plans to start preclinical studies with different types of combination therapies to support the clinical development. The clinical study of CAN04 is now planned to start during the first half of 2017, and a presentation of the phase I data is planned about a year after the start of the study. More data will be generated continuously, but based on the first data set, the foundation is laid for Cantargia’s ambition to find a partner who can take responsibility for the latter stages of clinical development. When phase I data are reported, in addition to the current study, the company also intends to finalize a protocol and start a clinical phase IIa trial for leukemia. The next step in the production development of CAN04 In June 2016, Cantargia decided to invest in the further optimization of its production processes, which has resulted in a production process that can be used to produce material for initial clinical trials. Because of the company's development strategy, the production process needs, however, to be carried out in a larger scale and at a higher cost than initially planned. Therefore, as part of the more aggressive clinical development of CAN04, Cantargia plans to invest in further process development of a production method that meets the requirements in subsequent clinical studies. Like other antibody production processes, substantial development activity and process optimization are needed between early and late clinical phase in order to increase yields and ensure a robust production. Through the investment in the production process, a better opportunity to take advantage of the time savings made in the overall clinical development is created. Start of a new project against autoimmunity and inflammation Cantargia intends to initiate the development of a new antibody against IL1RAP with properties optimized for the treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. IL1RAP mediates signals of both the cytokines IL-1 and IL-33, which have a role in several severe autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. The project is planned to start in 2017, and the goal is to select a clinical candidate that can enter development at the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019. By starting a new project against a disease segment that complements CAN04 in cancer treatment, the company gets a risk spreading that according to the board of directors is considered very attractive. In addition, the knowledge and tools developed within the CAN04 project gives a pronounced synergy between the two projects. "The goal is that within our existing or new antibody libraries identify and optimize antibodies that inhibit both IL-1 and IL-33 activity to treat autoimmune and inflammatory diseases", says Göran Forsberg. Planned future capitalization process In order to carry out the activities presented above, Cantargia’s board assess that the company has an additional need of capital of about MSEK 80 until mid 2018, in addition to what has been previously announced. Further information on the planned capitalization is planned to be published in Q4 2016 or Q1 2017. In addition, the capitalization also includes the conversion of warrants of series TO 2 and TO 4 in October 2016. If fully exercised, these warrants add a total of about MSEK 25 before issue costs to Cantargia. Cantargia’s board is expected to evaluate the opportunities and strategic options available for the company's next development stage during mid 2018.

Stem cell researcher from Lund University receives the Fernström Prize

Every year, the Fernström Foundation presents one large Nordic prize (which will be announced later in September) as well as local prizes to researchers at the six faculties of medicine in Sweden. Malin Parmar has received Lund University’s local prize for her studies on how to repair a brain that has suffered damage due to, for instance, Parkinson’s disease, with the help of advanced methods. Her work involves three different aspects of research:- making stem cells develop into dopamine-producing nerve cells, which can be inserted into the brains of patients who suffer from Parkinson’s, and thus have low levels of the signal substance dopamine - reprogramming skin cells directly into dopamine cells, without having to go through a stem cell stage- inserting genes into the brain to perform such reprogramming on the spot, and making, for example, glial cells (a type of connective tissue) convert into dopamine cells. “I believe in all three methods. They each have their advantages and disadvantages, and very different time perspectives”, she says. The first method will also be the first to be tested, in which stem cells, that have been cultivated in a lab, will be made to transform into dopamine cells to be transplanted into the patient’s brain. Trials with human patients are expected to begin within two years. A characteristic feature of stem cells is that they love to divide and create new cells. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage in this context. The advantage is that it is easy to obtain large quantities of cells to transplant. The disadvantage is that the division must be monitored carefully, so as to not have the process take off in an uncontrolled manner, similar to what happens in cancer. “Therefore, before the method can be applied on a larger scale, we need to conduct major and time-consuming safety trials, which can be expensive”, says Malin Parmar. The second method does not have the same disadvantage. Here it is possible to take skin cells from patients themselves – cells that could be directly converted into dopamine cells. There would then be no cell division and therefore less risk of uncontrolled development. Furthermore, by using the patient’s own cells, the risk of rejection is minimal. A few years ago, Malin Parmar’s group became the first in the world to successfully reprogram skin cells into nerve cells. Because the technology is so new, a clinical application of the method is further ahead: it might take 8–10 years before the method is ready to be tested on patients. The third method does not involve a transplantation of cells; rather, it is about inserting healthy genes into a diseased brain. In other words, the transformation does not take place inside a test tube, but in the actual brain. Malin Parmar’s group was first to successfully perform this as well. “Through animal testing, we were able to show that it is possible to reprogram glial cells (a type of cell that is found in large quantities in the brain) into nerve cells”, she says. However, the former glial cells are not to become just any cells, but specifically dopamine-producing nerve cells. It is impossible to say if and when it this development can be controlled. “It could be six months, but possibly also 20 years! However, if we succeed, the other part of the work does not have to be all that difficult”, says Malin Parmar. Gene therapy – i.e. inserting healthy genes into diseased cells in the body with the help of a harmless virus – is a method that is already used to treat different genetic diseases. The prize awarded by the Fernström Foundation will be presented to the Lund researcher during the popular science event “Research Day” in Lund on 2 November.

Accessibility has been in focus throughout the project.   ”The communications unit in Kungälv produces all videos and images on its own. We want the site content to be local and professional. It needs to be evident that video is one of our main tools for reaching the citizens, and I think we have succeeded in that. Our keywords are re-thinking, courage, and creativity,” says Susanne Junkala, Head of communications at Kungälv municipality. “Digitalisation affects us all and makes it possible to simplify people’s everyday lives, not least in the public sector. At HiQ we have the know-how and experience to carry the responsibility on a strategic, creative, and technical level.

Farstad Shipping ASA – Concentrates its activities in Australia

Farstad Shipping concentrates its oil service activity in Australia to Perth and will close down the management office in Melbourne. Consequently, the Australian onshore organization will be reduced from 65 to around 30 employees. - Farstad Shipping has participated in the development of the offshore oil and gas industry in Australia since the 1990s, and has become one of the leading oil service companies in the region. To secure this position also in the future, we are now transferring all of our activities to Perth, making it our new headquarters in Australia, says Karl-Johan Bakken, CEO of Farstad Shipping. Perth will then facilitate both the headquarters and the operations centre, in addition to the company’s training and offshore simulation centre.   The background for this move now, is the challenging market situation with low oil price and the subsequent sharp reduction in offshore activity. In connection to these changes, the Australian onshore organization will be reduced from 65 to around 30 employees. - It is with regret that we have to lay off dedicated and highly skilled employees, but it is the unfortunate result of a necessary capacity adjustment, Bakken says. The CEO would like to thank all of his employees who have contributed in building up Farstad Shipping in Australia. Bakken further says that the transfer of activity from Melbourne to Perth is a necessary step in preparing Farstad Shipping for the future. - In addition to working on establishing an overall refinancing plan, we are continuously working on structural solutions in order to secure our competitiveness and to align with the market and the needs of our clients, Bakken concludes. Farstad Shipping Pte. Ltd. in Singapore, which previously has been reporting to Australia, is now to be directly related to the Head Office in Aalesund.

“Cadila is one of the largest privately held pharma companies in India. The transformational partnership with Cadila places Oncology Venture in another league. Together with Cadila we aim to take LiPlaCis® and its Drug Response Predictor – DRP -  through a strong and focused development program with the goal of receiving marketing approval. We will together with Cadila who invests heavily as an ‘in kind’ investment test LiPlaCis® in four promising indications: breast, head & neck, skin and esophageal cancer which gives the drug a really good chance to benefit patients who are likely to respond,” says Peter Buhl Jensen, M.D., CEO of Oncology Venture. “In this partnership OV has the opportunity to build a much larger value instead of selling it outright. Cisplatin is one of the most used drugs in cancer treatment and the potential sales with the improved LiPlaCis formulation is huge,” Buhl Jensen further comments. On this occasion, Dr. Rajiv Modi, Chairman and Managing Director, Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd., said, “Cadila Pharmaceuticals believes in providing world-class healthcare products to improve quality of life of patients. This agreement with Oncology Venture is an affirmation of our commitment to develop novel treatment for those diseases in the realm of unmet medical needs. Cancer affects millions of people around the globe. We look forward to developing the product to benefit millions of patients who are affected by the deadly disease.”The Partnership dealThe deal with Cadila Pharmaceuticals will finance and perform studies in a total of 310 cancer patients with highest likelihood of sensitivity to LiPlaCis. The deal covers the following:1. Screening by the use of the LiPlaCis-DRP™ of 1 250 metastatic breast cancer patients to identify 250 patients with high likelihood to respond to LiPlaCis treatment and perform a randomized phase 3 trial in these 250 patients comparing standard therapy with LiPlaCis.2. Through Cadilas strong network and Cadilas CRO run four (4) clinical Phase 2 trials in 20 patients (out of 100 screened) with Head & Neck cancer, 20 prostate cancer patients (out of 100 screened), and 10 skin cancer patients and 10 esophagus cancer patients – the two latter indications are in a high frequency sensitive to cisplatin – of which LiPlaCis® is an improved formulation – why the patients will not be screened. Cadila has commercialization rights in India, Russia, Africa and South East Asia (ASEAN countries only), Oncology Venture has the commercialization rights to America, Europe and China and RoW. Oncology Venture will be responsible for the manufacturing and pay for manufacturing of the product. Estimated costs for product in 2017-2018 is 0,6 MUSD.

When developed parties may choose to market themselves in their own territories or out license or sell to a third party. About the LiPlaCis license from LiPlasome Pharma and the DRP license from MPIOncology Venture has in-licensed LiPlaCis® from LiPlasome Pharma and the LiPlaCis DRP™ from MPI and has now entered a development partnership with Cadila Pharma. The financial impact is as follows: In the consortium of owners now including Cadila Pharmaceuticals, LiPlasome, MPI and Oncology Venture - Oncology Venture owns 29% of the total value of the LiPlaCis project after Phase 3.OV pays for the manufacturing of the product. Oncology Venture did not pay any upfront payment to LiPlasome but pays 2x9 MUSD in sales milestones to LiPlasome once LiPlaCis is commercialized either via a partner or sold on the market. (please see latest company prospectus).Cost of clinical trials in oncology all phases per patient 59.500 USD (PhRMA 2013).http://www.phrma.org/sites/default/files/pdf/biopharmaceutical-industry-sponsored-clinical-trials-impact-on-state-economies.pdf  About Cadila Pharmaceuticals (www.cadilapharma.com)Cadila Pharmaceuticals is one of the largest privately held pharmaceuticals companies in India, headquartered at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. Established in 1951, the company develops and manufactures pharmaceutical products and sells and distributes these in all major markets across the globe.  It is an integrated healthcare solutions provider with a comprehensive therapeutic basket including oncology, pulmonology, neurology and cardiovascular.Cadila Pharmaceuticals is a research and innovation driven company and has collaborations with premier academic and research-based organisations across the world.Cadila Pharmaceuticals was the first Indian company to get IND approval by USFDA for clinical trials to be conducted in India. Subsequently, the company has filed 5 INDs with the USFDA. About LiPlaCisCisplatin is one of the most widely used drugs in the treatment of cancer due to its documented efficacy in a number of tumour types. Cisplatin is used in the treatment of large indications as lung cancer Europe+US ≈ 673,000 new cases annually), head and neck cancer (500,000 cases annually worldwide) bladder cancer (EU+US ≈ 170,000 annually) and ovarian cancer (EU+US ≈ 71,000 annually). The lipid formulation from LiPlasome is the answer to a well-established need for improving cisplatin therapy and improving the formulation of the drug, so that a more selective up-take of cisplatin administered takes place at the tumour sites. LiPlasome Pharma ApS has identified and incorporated a mechanism into their liposomes - called LiPlasomes - designed to trigger the release of an encapsulated drug specifically in the tumour tissue. An enzyme especially present on tumors called secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2), is utilised to break down the LiPlaCis once it has accumulated in the cancer tissue. The lipid composition of the LiPlasomes is tailored to be specifically sensitive to degradation by the sPLA2 enzyme and thereby for release of the encapsulated drug. The technology behind LiPlaCis® was originally developed by scientists from Danish Technical University -DTU. More about LiPlaCis™ and the clinical testingThe Phase 1 study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of LiPlaCis in patients with advanced tumours is running at a two University Hospitals in Copenhagen and has included 21 patients and is now in its extension phase where patients with metastatic breast cancer screened for sensitivity to LiPlaCis by the DRP are included. LiPlaCis has demonstrated promising signs of good activity in a small number of patients in the ongoing study. LiPlaCis™ is administered intravenously in 3 weeks cycles on day 1 and day 8. Upon the investigator’s judgement the patient may continue treatment for more than 3 cycles when benefiting from the study drug. About the Drug Response Predictor - DRP™ screening toolOncology Venture uses the MPI multi gene DRP™ to select those patients that by the gene signature in their cancer is found to have a high likelihood of response to the drug. The goal is to develop the drug for the right patients and by screening patients before treatment the response rate can be significantly increased.This DRP™ method builds on the comparison of sensitive vs. resistant human cancer cell lines including genomic information from cell lines combined with clinical tumor biology and clinical correlates in a systems biology network. The DRP™ is based on messenger RNA from the patients biopsies.The DRP™ platform i.e. the DRP™ and the PRP™ tools can be used in all cancer types, and is patented for more than 60 anti-cancer drugs in the US. The PRP™ is used by MPI for Personalized Medicine. The DRP™ is used in Oncology Venture for drug development. About LiPlaCis sales potential in breast cancer and lung cancerProvided that LiPlaCis has activity in the same diseases as cisplatin the below serves as examples of two major indications where conventional cisplatin is frequently used. LiPlaCis sales potential in breast cancer in USA and EU is more than 700 MUSD annually (please see below). For comparison eribulin sales for late stage breast cancer was 390 MUSD in 2013.http://www.eisai.com/pdf/eannual/epdf2014an.pdf  Breast Cancer (BC) in the USAhttp://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/understand_bc/statistics• 246.600 new cases expected in 2016• 40.450 deaths• 2.8 million with a history of BCThe 40.450 women who died of BC would be candidates to better treatment.

Scania creates the world’s first clock made of trucks

When you operate in long haulage transport, being at the right place at the right time can make or break your business. This is why Scania put its new generation of trucks and services through the toughest test of them all – time itself. The process of setting up the world’s first clock consisting entirely of trucks required 14 trucks, 90 drivers and 750,000 square feet of deserted airfield. The gigantic truck clock will start ticking on September 20th at 19.00 CET and be broadcast online. “Trucks are huge, powerful machines, but they’re also intricately designed, refined instruments. Just like watches. Each truck had to be optimized for its specific task in the clock, and real-time monitoring and analysis through our connected services made the whole operation possible”, explains Staffan Arvas, Head of Marketing Communications, Scania. The trucks that made up the clock faced a variety of difficulties depending on which clock hand they were forming. The trucks that made up the second hand had to drive on a round track in a perfect circle every 60 seconds for 24 hours. The inside truck had to maintain a constant speed of 13 km/h, while the outside truck had to hold a constant speed of 53 km/h. For the trucks making up the minute and hour hands, the challenge was to ensure a perfectly synchronized sequence of starts and stops. In order to maintain a correct, even speed while minimizing fuel consumption, each truck had to be carefully managed depending on their position in the clock. Scania fleet managers in the control tower were able to keep track of all the trucks and constantly monitor the status of each vehicle to avoid unexpected stops and keep wear and tear to a minimum. The drivers played a key role in ensuring that the whole operation worked smoothly. Elin Engström, a truck driver at Scania, played a lead role in the second hand that all the other trucks had to follow. She explains: “The most demanding challenge in long haulage is precision and punctuality. The clock was the ultimate test of staying in your line, maintaining your speed and keeping track of every second for 24 hours straight. All the drivers had to be in perfect sync and precision was the key to achieving this”. The clock was filmed using five different cameras, which allows viewers to switch between different angles on the website. Visitors to the site can also learn more about the project and the new generation of Scania trucks and services. The clock was set up to prove that regardless of whether you are hauling grain or fuel, transporting timber or building a 750,000-square-foot clock – Scania can always offer a solution tailored for the only business that matters. Yours. Check out the clock at: scaniaclock.com For more information, contact: Staffan Arvas, Head of Marketing Communications, Scania, tel +46 8 553 832 53, e-mail staffan.arvas@scania.com

WWF Scorecard shows which companies kept their promises to consumers on palm oil

+-------------+----------------------------------------+|Media Release|Embargoed to 0:01 GMT 21 September 2016 |+-------------+----------------------------------------+ Gland, Switzerland. While many palm oil buyers are taking the right actions on palm oil, some have failed to keep their promises to consumers or are still doing nothing at all to help reduce deforestation and other adverse impacts of producing the world’s most popular vegetable oil in some of the most vulnerable tropical habitats around the world. The 2016 edition of WWF’s Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard (http://awsassets.panda.org/downloads/po_scorecard_2016_final.pdf), looks at 137 major retailers, consumer goods manufacturers and food service companies from the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and India.  Evaluated companies include such iconic brands as Carrefour, L’Oreal, McDonald’s, Nestlé, Tesco, and Walmart among others. As with previous WWF Palm Oil Scorecards, this one measures how companies performed on basic steps such as joining the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), committing to and buying sustainable palm oil, and transparency. The Scorecard focuses on the year 2015, by which many companies pledged to consumers that they would be using 100% certified palm oil. “WWF has published this Scorecard in 2016 because we wanted to evaluate what companies actually did in 2015 and not just what they said they would do,” said WWF Palm Oil lead Adam Harrison. “While we can report gratifying progress by at least half of the companies we looked at, 1 in 5 either did not respond or were doing very little on palm oil and are still hiding from this issue altogether.  That is unacceptable behaviour considering the easy availability of certified sustainable palm oil.” “More than half of the companies had promised us and their customers that they would be using only certified palm oil by 2015.  While most of them did achieve their targets, it is a disappointment that 21 companies did not.” The Scorecard shows that both large and small companies can easily source certified sustainable palm oil. However, due to their buying power, large users of palm oil are crucial to the transformation of the wider industry.  A handful of these large users evaluated in the Scorecard – Unilever, Ferrero, FrieslandCampina, Reckitt Benckiser, Colgate-Palmolive, and ConAgra Foods – are showing their peers exactly how they too should be driving industry change by sourcing significant volumes of certified sustainable palm oil from any of the RSPO approved supply chains.  Medium sized users of palm oil scoring equally well on buying certified palm oil included Walmart, Mars, Associated British Foods, General Mills, Kellogg's, and Danone. But buying CSPO is only the first step on the journey to change the industry. The Scorecard also looks at how fast companies are taking the next step by moving to source certified sustainable palm oil from segregated supplies, rather than relying on trading certificates. And according to this measure, company progress is much more patchy.  Only three companies used 100% segregated certified sustainable palm oil in 2015 – Ferrero, Danone and Arnott’s. Of these companies, only Ferrero uses large volumes of palm oil. WWF commends these brands for leading the way to the ultimate sustainability goal for the industry– that certified sustainable palm oil becomes the standard commodity grade for all companies while uncertified palm oil becomes unacceptable. The 2016 Scorecard, the fourth WWF has published since 2009, scored 94 companies that were also assessed in the 2013 Scorecard. 75 of these companies made progress, while 11 seem to have stalled and 8 gone backwards.  Whilst the overall direction of the sustainability journey is good for the majority of companies, WWF wants to see all brands taking responsibility for the palm oil they use. The complete performance profile on each company is shared on the Scorecard website, as well as detailed, filterable tables showing how companies perform in comparison with others in their sector. “The industry is at a critical stage on the journey to sustainable palm oil,” said Harrison.  “More major brands are now using only certified palm oil yet laggard companies continue to drag their feet. That needs to change.  WWF urges consumers to visit the Scorecard website and use it to reach out to companies to commend those that are leading the way and to tell the others to do better.   We all have a role to play in demanding full participation and transparency of all palm oil buyers across the globe in order to stem the tide of deforestation and affect true sector wide transformation. “ For more information: The 2016 Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard can be downloaded from palmoilscorecard.wwf.panda.org or http://awsassets.panda.org/downloads/po_scorecard_2016_final.pdf    Contact: Carrie Svingen (csvingen@wwf.panda.org or +49 151 188 54 833) Notes: Palm oil plantations, largely in low lying tropical areas in south east Asia but increasingly in Africa and Latin America, produce 65 percent of the world’s traded vegetable oil.  Palm oil is a key ingredient in many foods, cosmetics, soaps and detergents and is emerging as a significant biofuel stock.  Overall palm oil demand is expected to double by 2020, increasing the pressure on tropical forests and biodiversity, risking dangerous levels of greenhouse gas emissions from tropical peats and increased community conflict.  But that does not have to be the way the industry grows.  The RSPO shows that palm oil can expand sustainably – and the role of retailers and manufacturers is to support that by joining the RSPO and buying RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. The data in the Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard 2016 was supplied by assessed companies to either the RSPO or WWF and has not been independently verified. WWF encourages consumers, companies and investors to read, scrutinize and share the information on social media in order to help build a culture of transparency around corporate palm oil use. About WWF WWF is one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation organizations, with more than 5 million supporters and a global network active in over 100 countries.  WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the earth's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world's biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption. www.panda.org/media for latest news and media resources

Elocta® obtains reimbursement in UK, Italy and France, complemented by real-world data and extensive patient experience

Patient access to Elocta is increasing, contributing to further evidence generation and real-world patient experience for extended half-life factor VIII therapy Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi™) (http://www.sobi.com/) today announces that the company’s product Elocta® (efmoroctocog alfa), a recombinant human factor VIII Fc-fusion protein with an extended half-life for the treatment of haemophilia A, has been approved for  reimbursement in the UK, Italy and France. These countries join Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Slovenia and the Republic of Ireland where Elocta is already available. This expansion in availability is supported by global experience. With more than two years of post-authorisation real-world experience with Elocta (marketed as Eloctate® in the US and other regions), over 2,700 patients have been treated in countries where Elocta is commercially available, corresponding to about 1,800 patient-years of experience.   “This extensive post approval clinical experience with Elocta complements the clinical data generated by our pivotal clinical studies, and follows the findings of the long term ASPIRE extension study. We believe that this comprehensive clinical data and real world experience can provide support to clinicians and patients while making their treatment choices as Elocta becomes available in additional countries,” said Krassimir Mitchev, MD, PhD, Vice President and medical therapeutic area head of Haemophilia at Sobi. The safety and efficacy of long-term use of the extended half-life recombinant Fc-factor VIII, Elocta for haemophilia A were highlighted in a series of oral and poster presentations by Biogen and Sobi at the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2016 World Congress in Orlando, Florida that took place 24-28 July 2016. Through the pivotal clinical trials (A-LONG, Kids A-LONG) and extension study (ASPIRE) 233 patients have been treated with Elocta. Overall clinical study experience with Elocta confirms its long term safety and efficacy, and supports its potential to offer extended protection against bleeds. Eloctate was first approved for haemophilia A in the USA in June 2014 and in the EU (as Elocta) in November 2015. ------------ About Haemophilia AHaemophilia is a rare, genetic disorder in which the ability of a person's blood to clot is impaired. Haemophilia A occurs in about one in 5,000 male births annually, and more rarely in females.   People with haemophilia A experience prolonged bleeding episodes that can cause pain, irreversible joint damage and life-threatening haemorrhages. Prophylactic infusions of factor VIII can temporarily replace the missing clotting factors that are needed to control bleeding and prevent new bleeding episodes.[i] (http://teamsites.sobi.com/s/corporate-communications/Shared%20Documents/Press%20releases/041_WFH%20real%20world%20data/041e_TAH%20real%20world%20experience_final.docx#_edn1) The World Federation of Hemophilia recommends prophylaxis as the optimal therapy as it can prevent bleedings and joint destruction.[ii] (http://teamsites.sobi.com/s/corporate-communications/Shared%20Documents/Press%20releases/041_WFH%20real%20world%20data/041e_TAH%20real%20world%20experience_final.docx#_edn2) About Elocta®/Eloctate®Elocta (efmoroctocog alfa), the first recombinant clotting factor VIII therapy that offers an extended half-life in the body, is approved in the European Union, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, as well as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan (as Eloctate). It was developed for haemophilia A by fusing factor VIII to the Fc portion of immunoglobulin G subclass 1, or IgG1 (a protein commonly found in the body). This enables Elocta to use a naturally occurring pathway to prolong the time the therapy remains in the body. While Fc fusion technology has been used for more than 15 years, Sobi and Biogen are the first companies to utilise it in the treatment of haemophilia. As with any factor replacement therapy, development of inhibitors may occur following administration of Elocta/Eloctate.

Eniro changes its Group Management Team; Board of Directors to evaluate ownership of some parts of the Group

Today, the Eniro Group has announced a number of changes to its Group Management Team. The changes will strengthen Eniro’s sales efforts and increase focus on developing the company’s future customer offering, as well as establishing a slimmer, more dynamic Group Management Team. New customer offering“During the last few months, we have worked intensively with the creation of Eniro’s future business proposition. In consequence, Eniro will introduce two new strong concepts to the Swedish market this fall. We operate in an extremely fragmented market where many players are competing for the local SME customers, making it quite difficult and challenging to be an advertiser today. We will meet our customers’ needs with simple, easy-to-use solutions tailored to deliver the correct marketing mix for the customer, once again proving that Eniro is where SMEs can go to get help with their local marketing,” says CEO Örjan Frid. New Head of SalesTo strengthen the sales effort, including the introduction of Eniro’s new customer offering to the market, Mattias Wedar has been appointed acting Head of Nordic Sales. Mattias was previously Head of User & Customer Experience and has held several management positions at Eniro since 2008. “We make this change to get a fresh perspective on our sales effort. Mattias has prior experience with managing the sales forces in both Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and I’m fully confident that he will bring new ideas to the table that will get us back on track,” says Örjan Frid. New Group Management TeamCEO Örjan Frid has chosen to step in as acting Head of User & Customer Experience himself. “We’re currently working hard to develop a much needed update to Eniro’s customer offering. To be able to offer a modernized, improved product portfolio is a top priority right now, and I have chosen to step in as acting Head of User & Customer Experience until the work is completed,” says Örjan Frid. Following these changes, Eniro’s Group Management Team is constituted by CEO Örjan Frid, CFO Fredrik Sandelin, and Head of Nordic Sales Mattias Wedar. Strategic review of Group structure and capital structureAlong with the clarification of the new customer offering, the Eniro Board of Directors is making a strategic review regarding the ownership of some of the Group holdings. In addition, the Board of Directors is addressing the capital structure of the Group.

Scania’s application-focused solutions:Optimised customer profitability is Scania’s goal

With the introduction of our new truck generation, we’re placing an even greater focus on the opportunities for connected European customers to earn money through their investment in solutions from Scania,” says Christopher Podgorski, Senior Global Vice President, Scania Trucks. “Our focus on applications, integrated solutions, modularisation, and user-based data make us the industry leader. With help from these tools, our salespeople – in dialogue with customers – can tailor optimised solutions with the potential for optimal profitability for all types of driving assignments.” Scania views every truck as a production unit – the better suited it is to its unique duties and the more supported it is by tailor-made services, the bigger the haulage company’s potential to get a return on its investment. The haulier’s results are affected by a range of factors. Some of them are relatively simple to identify and influence. Others are controlled by circumstances beyond their own control or seem insignificant at first glance, despite the fact that over time they can have a major influence on both costs and revenue. “We have the insights and experience needed to create optimised solutions,” says Podgorski. “Because Scania also has access to crucial information such as actual operational data from real vehicles, our way of working gives powerful leverage to our customers in the form of optimised solutions that take in everything from usage-based maintenance, to finance and insurance. The effects of digitalisation The ongoing shift to digitalisation and the steady increase in access to decision-making data – including operational and performance data – means that Scania can be proactive and innovative. From an ocean of information, Scania chooses and analyses relevant data for each application and driving activity. “We are fast entering a world where services and smart management of information form the basis of profitability,” says Podgorski. “Many in the transport industry are still working with a strict focus on costs, with the  vehicle’s purchase price a typical factor. In cases like this, it’s important to remember that things such as earning ability – which is largely controlled by how optimised the vehicle is for its particular duties – have a far greater impact on whether there’s a profit or a loss for the business.” A good example of the way that Scania uses its accumulated knowledge is the newly developed sales support system. It distills the company’s collective knowledge regarding trucks, optimised transport solutions, and industry conditions as well as actual customer needs for different applications. This work tool is the result of many years’ work involving collating, analysing and spreading Scania’s significant know-how regarding the multifaceted truck and transport industry. Scania was one of the pioneers of connecting all vehicles for purposes such as optimising usage and availability. Scania has also been at the forefront of improving the process around getting bodywork in place on vehicles. One key step was launching a site in the summer of 2016 with a focus on supporting body builders. Another decisive step was Scania switching to CAN-bus technology, which greatly improves the potential for configuring and controlling body building and related functions. ”We are working constantly to improve the outlook for customers,” says Podgorski. “Access to real-time data is extremely hot right now, as it means you no longer have to guess when it comes to the vehicle’s position, its maintenance needs, or its actual fuel consumption. In short, a partnership with Scania means that haulage operators are better placed than ever before to improve profitability.” Flexible maintenance plans One of the best examples of this is Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans, a service that was initially offered across the whole of Europe a bit more than a year ago. That process is almost complete now that the new generation of trucks has been introduced. With all new trucks connected, the basis for the service is how these vehicles are used – and not the traditional mileage counts or calendar-based approaches – controls how they should be serviced under the maintenance contract that Scania and the customer draw up together. “Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans is the latest and the main contribution to the ecosystem of services – both physical and digital – that we offer and which is crucial to being able to operate businesses that are sustainable in the long-term,” says Podgorski. ”Being able to tailor complete and individual solutions, including things like service and financing, is crucial in our industry. It's here that the conditions for either profit or loss are created in the only operation the customer really cares about – their own.” For more information, please contact: Örjan Åslund, Head of Product Affairs, Scania Trucks,+46 70 289 83 78, orjan.aslund@scania.com

Live Firing Of The New Carl-Gustaf M4 In The United Kingdom

The purpose of the Close Combat Symposium was to examine future capability requirements for ground manoeuvre combat forces, both mounted and dismounted, as well as to identify current capability gaps and to examine current and future threats. Representatives from military, procurement agencies, R&D staff and industry from all over the world took part in this year’s event. “The Close Combat Symposium has become an important annual event and it was great to be part of it. A live firing demonstration to an international audience is a rare opportunity and generates a powerful impact as they get to witness the multi-purpose capabilities of the Carl-Gustaf system” says Alex Anderson, Director Marketing & Sales UK for ground combat systems. Saab’s part of the demonstration used a tactical scenario in which Saab personnel acted as an infantry patrol carrying the Carl-Gustaf M4 and a selection of rounds for the weapon. Employing a wide range of ammunition types, the Carl-Gustaf system allows dismounted soldiers to defeat multiple challenges – from neutralising armoured vehicles to clearing obstacles and engaging enemies in buildings. In the first scenario the patrol engaged and defeated an enemy vehicle using the HEPD 502 (High Explosive Dual Purpose) round set to impact mode. At the same time, the patrol came under fire from an enemy unit positioned insidea building nearby. The patrol returned fire, destroying the enemy position using the HEDP 502 round set to delay mode. A further two enemy positions – this time entrenched outside the effective range of small-arms – were neutralised in less than 60 seconds using four rounds of HE441D rounds set to airburst above their trenches. The gunner then moved into another firing location without his assistant gunner and fired two more rounds to demonstrate the Carl-Gustaf’s single soldier operation capability. Finally, two smoke rounds were fired to support the team’s withdrawal from their position. “The Carl-Gustaf is a unique support weapon in that it allows a unit that has come under enemy fire to not only suppress the enemy, but successfully end the engagement with a very limited number of rounds”, says Anders Haster, Director Business Management, at business unit Ground Combat within business area Dynamics. “As the new M4 is qualified to be carried and transported loaded, the reaction time is extremely short. You can basically return fire instantaneously,” says Haster. The Carl-Gustaf is a world-leading weapon system within the support weapon category. It has been constantly modernised and enhanced to meet users’ changing needs. The latest version, the Carl-Gustaf M4, reduces the weight from 10 kg to less than 7 kg. Carl-Gustaf is a battle-winning system for soldiers operating in demanding environments.   For further information, please contact:Saab Press Centre,+46 (0)734 180 018,presscentre@saabgroup.com www.saabgroup.comwww.saabgroup.com/YouTubeFollow us on twitter: @saab (http://www.saabgroup.com/YouTube) Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions within military defence and civil security.

Court Ruling Quashes Industry Move to Undermine EU Ban on New Animal Test Data for Cosmetics

LONDON (21 September 2016) – The Court of Justice of the European Union has confirmed the EU’s 2013 ban on cosmetic animal testing and trade with a verdict today that expressly forbids companies from relying on results from animal tests conducted outside of the EU after March 2013 to substantiate the safety of cosmetic products in the EU. Humane Society International welcomes the ruling as a win for animal welfare advocates. The European Federation for Cosmetics Ingredients brought the case seeking a narrower interpretation of the ban by the court, under which new animal tests conducted under legislation in non-EU countries could be used to substantiate the safety of cosmetics under EU law. Such a narrow interpretation would have rendered the EU ban toothless.   “We are pleased that this cynical attempt by the industry to circumvent the EU’s restrictions on cosmetics animal testing and sales has failed,” said HSI #BeCrueltyFree campaign director Claire Mansfield. “The court’s ruling does justice to clear consumer demand for an end to cruel cosmetics, and reinforces the ongoing work of Humane Society International’s global #BeCrueltyFree campaign to extend the EU’s precedent-setting bans on cosmetics animal testing and trade to all major beauty markets. With this positive momentum we may be only a few years away from a world where cosmetics companies will have to go cruelty-free to remain profitable.” Humane Society International was a major player in convincing the EU to implement its 2013 sales ban on newly animal-tested cosmetic products and ingredients, and together with regional #BeCrueltyFree campaign partners was the leading force behind the adoption of similar bans in India, New Zealand and South Korea. #BeCrueltyFree campaign teams are currently working with the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Taiwan and other nations to enact additional air-tight bans.    - 30 - Media contacts: · Europe: Susie Wilks, swilks@hsi.org, +44 7900 953507 · North America: Raúl Arce-Contreras, rcontreras@humanesociety.org, +1 301-721-6440

At the show, the DBT 22 MD model for trucks and buses will have its world debut. It has a maximum brake torque of 25 kNm and a weight of just 34 kg with pads, which is several kg lighter than comparable models from competitors. The DBT 22 LT ModulT for trailers and semi-trailers is presented in a new version that is even slimmer and now weighs less than 30 kg with pads, which definitely is the lightest 22.5-inch disc brake for trailers on the market. Also appearing in Hanover will be the DBT 19 LT trailer brake with a maximum brake torque of 18 kNm. “Haldex is entering into a new era for disc brakes with the 22-inch model for trucks. We have been demonstrating this model to selected customers since the spring with very positive response. Now it’s presented for a larger audience at the IAA show.”, says Bo Annvik, President & CEO of Haldex. “Haldex is known for its lightweight disc brakes for trailers which is our fastest growing product line. We plan to repeat the same successful growth story in the truck segment as we have done in the trailer segment in Europe. With the technology shift in North America from drum brakes to disc brakes, we are well positioned with our current disc brake offering when the technology shift is taking place in North America.”     “We’re very proud to present the lightest disc brake range on the market. Weight optimization is creating sustainable solutions with lower fuel consumption which is key when designing the commercial vehicles of the future.” said Jeff Stokes, Global Product Manager – Disc Brakes for Haldex. “The ModulT air disc brake is the perfect solution for customers looking for high efficiency with greater control and stability for a long service life with lower total cost of ownership,” All ModulT brakes utilize Haldex's special single-tappet mechanism, which offers two key benefits. The first is extensive support and uniform pressure on the brake pads. The second is a weight-optimized design that is not a single gram heavier than necessary. It was not just the single-tappet design that reduced the weight of the ModulT: All parts, and the calliper, in particular, have undergone intensive finite element analysis. The result is a new and especially slim yet stronger architecture. The 19.5-inch and 22.5-inch versions have also raised the standard in their classes for maintenance and repair. With the new design, engineers have minimized the number of parts subject to wear. Another advantage is exceptionally uniform wear of the inner and outer pads thanks to particularly well-balanced clamping force distribution, which prevents heat cracks and uneven wear while also contributing to excellent braking power. In addition, double roller bearings in the lever mechanism guarantee low hysteresis and great efficiency. The brake is well-protected from potentially damaging external forces: The calliper guide of the ModulT disc brake is completely enclosed, and thanks to the inverted mechanism bellows, the brake is well-protected, which makes the mechanism far less subject to damage from dirt and stirred-up solids.

Scania’s new truck generation honoured – The S series elected “International Truck of the Year 2017”

“The award is the leading recognition in the industry that all our engineers and in practice the entire Scania organisation have done an excellent job,” says Henrik Henriksson, Scania’s President and CEO. “Our goal is to always meet our customers’ expectations and needs and the jury’s motivation is a clear confirmation that we have also followed the right approach with the new truck generation.” The jury, which is today composed of 25 leading European trade press journalists and chaired by the Italian automotive journalist Gianenrico Griffini, wrote the following in its motivation: “With its new range, Scania has delivered a truck that represents a real “state-of-the-art” offering in the heavy duty segment, capable of satisfying not only today’s but also tomorrow’s transport needs.” The IToY jury also highlighted Scania’s tailored service offering, which is based on the fact that more than 200,000 connected Scania vehicles are out on the roads.       The award is for the S series − the new sleeper cab with a flat floor that is mainly intended for long-haulage trucks and that Scania has just introduced within the framework of its new truck generation. “The S cab, with its flat floor, offers a truly car-like driving experience,” says Griffini. Besides offering exceptional comfort and unrivalled space, the S cabs can also be fitted out with dual side curtain airbags, a safety feature, which Scania is the first in the truck world to be able to offer. “The new truck generation, which will be honoured was developed by our 3,500 engineers in Södertälje together with other Scania employees and in close dialogue with our customers,” says Henriksson. “The award shows that Sweden is still a leading industrial nation and that we can compete in the world markets.”     Scania’s investment in the model range is the largest ever in the company’s 125-year history. In total, SEK 20 billion has been invested in the development of new products and services, including in the adjustment of production.

LICOS Trucktec GmbH in a new outfit; more than just a design change?

LICOS is a well-known brand in the truck industry. What was the driver to change the logo? The company, founded in 1998 by Dr. Andreas Wolf and Karl-Heinz Linnig, was acquired by Concentric AB in 2013. Changing the logo into Concentric’s corporate colours was the final step of the successful integration of LICOS into the wider Concentric group. We´ve changed the colours but we have not changed the brand name or the products. Our name stands for high-quality and innovative products. To date we have delivered over half a million clutches into the EURO5 and EURO6 engines of Europe’s top truck brands.  The clutches save a huge amount of diesel and we have a calculation ticker on our homepage www.licostrucktec.com where you can find the total of saved litres of diesel. Concentric AB is listed on the Swedish stock exchange and, prior to the acquisition in 2013, LICOS was just a typical German midsize company. This July you celebrated the 3rd anniversary of joining the Concentric group. What have been the major changes for the Company since 2013? I think the changes that we have seen were not that dramatic. Yes, for sure, there is a big difference if you have to change your internal reporting system from a German family owned company into a member of an international listed group. On the other hand, LICOS already had international quality standards and customers before the change of ownership. Our customer rating has been excellent since the inception of the Company so there were no changes necessary on that side of the business. What were the customer reactions following the change in ownership? Our customers have been informed and were visited by our management team shortly after the shareholder change. Their reaction was generally very positive and may be best summed up by the following statement from a senior level manager at one particular customer: “The LICOS clutch is a major component for the EURO6 engine. It is good to know that the company now belongs to a bigger group with a global footprint.” In times of globalization, it is important to have local manufacturing and applications support located right next to the assembly plants of the global truck manufacturers. What are the plans for the future of LICOS in this global truck business? Do you have new technologies or products to add to your current portfolio? The current business of LICOS is secured by our patent protected 2 speed clutch technology, which we sell currently only to the European market. Our sales team is working hard with customers in North America and Asia to introduce the 2 speed clutch technology into these markets as soon as possible. In addition, we expect to launch the production of our double cone clutch in the near future. This clutch is our new technology for switching high torque in very limited space. The technology is developed by LICOS and is fully patent protected. All the tests to date have been positive and the customers are very interested to get this technology onto their engines as soon as possible.  Our passion is to develop products which help make the truck more efficient and the double cone clutch is another example of LICOS providing a high tech and robust solution for our customers. Concentric AB is an innovator in flow control and fluid power, supplying proprietary systems and components to the world’s truck, construction, mining and agricultural equipment industries.  The Concentric group has manufacturing facilities in the UK, USA, Germany, Sweden, India, China and Argentina.

Saab to provide shipboard air traffic radar systems for U.S. Navy

The radar will be deployed to the US Navy’s Aircraft Carrier (CVN)and Amphibious Assault (LH)Class ships, replacing the currently deployed AN/SPN-43C Air Traffic Radar. The SPN-50 system supports the deployment, sustainment and operation of aviation assets by providing aircraft position, radar signal, and weather data. Air traffic controllers use this data for air traffic control services, such as aircraft sequencing and separation, airspace identification and containment, safety alerts, traffic advisories, and landing guidance. “The U.S. Navy is increasingly called upon to support missions involving manned and unmanned aviation operations. With the SPN-50, air traffic controllers can support joint coalition forces across the full range of military operations in all weather conditions,” says Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab Defense and Security USA. Saab is a world leader in air traffic management as well as in military radar and sensor technology. The SPN-50 program allows Saab to leverage its knowledge, skills and capabilities from both domains. “Saab’s naval radars are a proven success with the U.S. Navy. Our AN/SPS-77 radar is currently deployed aboard the Navy’s Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship and we look forward to a continued partnership with the new SPN-50 program,” continues Mr. Smith. The AN/SPN-50 system acquisition, deployment and sustainment is managed by Naval Air Systems Command’s Naval Air Traffic Management Systems Program Office. The office is the Naval Aviation Enterprise’s Program Office for all Navy and Marine Corps Air Traffic Management Systems.

SCA and WSSCC issue Joint Global Report on Hygiene Matters

The latest edition of the Hygiene Matters report, which was launched during a special side session of the 71st United Nations General Assembly today, is based on a survey with 12,000 respondents in twelve countries. The survey explores three themes: an economic perspective on the value of hygiene, a social perspective focused on taboos and stereotypes around hygiene and the role hygiene will play in social and economic development in emerging and developed markets in the future. The special side session during the General Assembly  brought together stakeholders and influencers from around the world to provide recommendations for policymakers in both developed and developing countries to address hygiene challenges meaningfully and systematically. Since 2008, SCA has conducted a total of five surveys to gather insights about global hygiene perceptions, issues and behaviors to contribute to a knowledge-based public debate with the goal of improving hygiene for people everywhere and breaking taboos around incontinence and menstruation.  “SCA offers hygiene products that make life easier for millions of people around the world.  We share our expertise and educate on the importance of good hygiene practices and engage in activities across the globe such as educating young women about menstruation and children about the importance of proper hand hygiene. In 2014, WSSCC and SCA started working together to break the silence on Menstrual Hygiene Management, a partnership that has evolved and now includes the entire human life cycle. Today, we’re announcing the next step in our efforts to raise hygiene standards globally,” said Magnus Groth, President and CEO, SCA. “Partnerships are one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and by pairing WSSCC’s technical expertise on sanitation and hygiene issues in developing countries with SCA’s global brands, knowledge and commitment to sustainability, education and innovation, we will increase awareness around  taboos surrounding personal hygiene and make a meaningful difference,” Magnus Groth continues. At any given time, 800 million women are experiencing their period. Yet, even in the US, women face limited access to education, products, school and work environments that make it possible to participate fully in society when menstruating. According to the Hygiene Matters report, more than half of the female populations in the majority of countries surveyed say they feel uncomfortable in social situations when on their period – a discomfort that’s strongly connected to norms and social stigma. “Public-private partnerships are essential to global progress related to personal hygiene,” said Amina Mohammed, chair of WSSCC. “By working together, we can more effectively inspire decision-makers and champions to act, whether on policy, practice or even advocating for hygiene.” With the launch of the Hygiene Matters report, SCA and WSSCC continue a global conversation around hygiene issues and opportunities across organizations, sectors and countries, sharing successes and opening the dialogue on what is often an unspoken topic: personal hygiene.

Elocta® obtains national reimbursement in Spain, now available in the five largest markets in the EU

Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi™) (http://www.sobi.com/) today announces that the company’s product Elocta® (efmoroctocog alfa), a recombinant human factor VIII Fc-fusion protein with an extended half-life for the treatment of haemophilia A, has received national reimbursement approval in Spain. Elocta is already available in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Slovenia and the Republic of Ireland. “This approval is an important reimbursement milestone for Elocta, representing the last of the five largest markets in the EU. Our focus is to continue our work to ensure timely access to Elocta for people living with haemophilia A in these countries and in the rest of the Sobi territory”, said Geoffrey McDonough CEO and President at Sobi. ------------ About Haemophilia AHaemophilia is a rare, genetic disorder in which the ability of a person's blood to clot is impaired. Haemophilia A occurs in about one in 5,000 male births annually, and more rarely in females.   People with haemophilia A experience prolonged bleeding episodes that can cause pain, irreversible joint damage and life-threatening haemorrhages. Prophylactic infusions of factor VIII can temporarily replace the missing clotting factors that are needed to control bleeding and prevent new bleeding episodes.[i] (http://teamsites.sobi.com/s/corporate-communications/Shared%20Documents/Press%20releases/042_Elocta%20reimbursement%20Spain/042e_Elocta%20reimbursed%20in%20Spain_final.docx#_edn1) The World Federation of Hemophilia recommends prophylaxis as the optimal therapy as it can prevent bleedings and joint destruction.[ii] (http://teamsites.sobi.com/s/corporate-communications/Shared%20Documents/Press%20releases/042_Elocta%20reimbursement%20Spain/042e_Elocta%20reimbursed%20in%20Spain_final.docx#_edn2) About Elocta®/Eloctate®Elocta (efmoroctocog alfa), the first recombinant clotting factor VIII therapy that offers an extended half-life in the body, is approved in the European Union, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, as well as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Taiwan and Japan (as Eloctate). It was developed for haemophilia A by fusing factor VIII to the Fc portion of immunoglobulin G subclass 1, or IgG1 (a protein commonly found in the body). This enables Elocta to use a naturally occurring pathway to prolong the time the therapy remains in the body. While Fc fusion technology has been used for more than 15 years, Sobi and Biogen are the first companies to utilise it in the treatment of haemophilia. As with any factor replacement therapy, development of inhibitors may occur following administration of Elocta/Eloctate. About Sobi™Sobi is an international specialty healthcare company dedicated to rare diseases. Sobi’s mission is to develop and deliver innovative therapies and services to improve the lives of patients. The product portfolio is primarily focused on Haemophilia, Inflammation and Genetic diseases.

Safety Review Committee supports dose escalation with Betalutin® in Lymrit 37-01 trial pending safety data from cohort receiving higher pre-dosing

Oslo, Norway, 23 September 2016Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANO) announces that the independent Safety Review Committee (SRC) for the ongoing Lymrit 37-01 clinical trial of Betalutin® in follicular lymphoma (FL) has given its support to the continuation of the trial potentially at a higher dose of Betalutin® and increased pre-dosing with lilotomab, as soon as safety data from Arm 4 of the same study become available. FL is one of the most prevalent forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).Lymrit 37-01 is a Phase 1/2 open label, single injection dose-ascending study investigating different dose levels of Betalutin® and different pre-dosing regimens in patients with relapsed NHL with the aim of identifying an optimal dose regimen to take into the Phase 2 PARADIGME study.After a planned review of  the interim safety data from the Phase 1 and 2 parts of Arm 1  of Lymrit 37-01, based on 15 patients with relapsed/refractory FL treated with 15 MBq/kg Betalutin® and pre-dosed with 40 mg lilotomab*, the SRC concluded the following:•    The regimen of 15 MBq/kg Betalutin® administered after pre-dosing with 40 mg lilotomab is safe and the safety profile observed to date supports a possible dose escalation of Betalutin®•    The efficacy profile is promising compared to other candidates in development, particularly with regard to complete responses•    The limited safety data available to date from the first cohort of three patients in Arm 4 (receiving 15 MBq/kg Betalutin® and pre-dosed with 100mg/m2 lilotomab**) is encouraging and appears to show that an increase in pre-dosing with lilotomab improves the safety profile of Betalutin®•    Safety and dosimetry data from Arm 4 should confirm if and to what level the doses of Betalutin® and lilotomab in Phase 2 can be increased to further improve the risk/benefit profile seen so far.The company does not expect any impact to previously communicated timelines, neither for the dose definition date (Q1 2017) nor the planned pivotal PARADIGME trial, which is scheduled to start in 2H 2017.Luigi Costa, Nordic Nanovector CEO, commented: “We are pleased with the conclusions of the SRC meeting, which provide us with further confidence that we are closing in on the optimal dose regimen.”    *Lilotomab is a murine anti-CD37 antibody, previously referred to as HH1. The way the dose of lilotomab is referred to has been changed (from 50 mg/patient to 40mg/patient) following further characterisation of lilotomab, which has determined the actual absorbance factor of lilotomab reference standard (1.74 vs. the previous estimate of 1.4). The absorbance factor is used to measure the concentration of lilotomab drug product.**The change in dose units for lilotomab from mg to mg/m2 is because a more accurate way of calculating the administered concentration of antibody is now being applied, as described in previous footnote.For further information, please contact:IR enquiries:Luigi Costa, Chief Executive OfficerCell: +41 79 124 8601Tone Kvåle, Chief Financial OfficerCell: +47 91 51 95 76Email: ir@nordicnanovector.comMedia enquiries:Mark Swallow/David Dible (Citigate Dewe Rogerson)Tel: +44 207 282 2948/+44 207 282 2949Email: nordicnanovector@citigatedr.co.ukAbout Nordic Nanovector:Nordic Nanovector is a biotech company focusing on the development and commercialisation of novel targeted therapeutics in haematology and oncology. The Company’s lead clinical-stage product opportunity is Betalutin®, the first in a new class of Antibody-Radionuclide-Conjugates (ARC) designed to improve upon and complement current options for the treatment of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).

Multifaceted genetic impact of training

Regular endurance training is very beneficial to health and wellbeing, and can be used to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and other such conditions. However, just how this works on a molecular level is not fully known.  Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have now analyzed RNA, the molecular copies of the DNA-sequence, in muscle tissue before and after endurance training. They found approximately 3400 RNA variants, associated with 2600 genes, that changed in response to training. One implication of the study is that training can induce the same gene to increase the production of one RNA variant and reduce that of another. According to the researchers, this can mean that genes can change function as a result of exercise and, for example, start to promote the production of certain protein variants over others. “It has not been previously shown that training changes the expression of genes in this particular way. The study also provides new basic information about how the body adapts to regular endurance training and what role many of our genes play in the adaptation,” says Dr Maléne Lindholm at Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Physiology and Pharmacology. The study began with an exercise programme for 23 individuals that involved working one leg but not the other. Muscle samples were taken before and after the training period. After a nine months rest period, they then exercised both legs in the same way as in the initial period of exercise, with muscle samples taken from both legs. “We were looking for any residual effects of previous training, a kind of muscle memory as it were, and trying to find out if this could influence the response to repeated training.” The changed genetic activity in the previously trained leg was no longer present when exercise resumed. However, the repeated response to training was somewhat different in the trained and previously untrained legs in the second training period, which suggests that the exercise could have left other lasting impacts. According to Dr Lindholm, the study is important above all for the fundamental understanding of how muscles operate and how we adapt to endurance training. “The results can also contribute to the future optimisation of training effects in different individuals,” she says. “In the long run, it is conceivably of some significance to the possibility of preventing cardiovascular disease and the development of new, more precise drugs for people who, for whatever reason, are unable to exercise.” The study was financed by the Swedish National Centre for Research in Sports, Karolinska Institutet and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation Publication: ”The impact of Endurance Training on Human Skeletal Muscle Memory, Global Isoform Expression and Novel Transcripts” Maléne Lindholm, Stefania Giacomello, Beata Werne Solnestam, Helene Fischer, Mikael Huss, Sanela Kjellqvist, Carl Johan Sundberg.

The Switch, a Yaskawa company, to acquire Wärtsilä Drives’ products

PRESS RELEASE: For release on September 23, 2016(For German and Norwegian versions see attached) The Switch, a Yaskawa company, to acquire Wärtsilä Drives’ products, R&D and manufacturing to strengthen its core advanced electrical drive train offering.  Finland, September 23, 2016 – The Switch, a technology specialist of advanced drive trains, announced its acquisition of Wärtsilä’s marine drives business that encompasses specialized megawatt-class power drives targeting marine applications. The Yaskawa-backed investment gives The Switch a stronger foothold in its growing marine business area. Together, The Switch and the Norway-based marine drives business aim to benefit from a number of inherent added-value synergies, including a stronger machine and drive package offering, a broader product range and a wider market access.  As part of the deal, The Switch will gain part of Wärtsilä’s Electrical & Automation (E&A) business line’s test center and the manufacturing facilities in Stord, Norway, that are associated with its marine drives. The Switch will then become a supply chain partner of Wärtsilä for marine drives while also being able to open up the product offering to other customers. The business transition from Wärtsilä to The Switch is due for completion once the operations have been transferred to The Switch. Stronger core offering The Switch investment in the marine drives business enables both companies to fully focus on developing their core competences and creating drive train solutions with better synergy together. Wärtsilä aims to focus on systems, whereas The Switch strives to be the best in providing drive train components to future proof vessels. The specialized marine R&D teams of the synergetic group will collaborate closely, enabling The Switch and Yaskawa to bring additional technical resources to ongoing and future solutions. Additionally, the two will be able to take advantage of building on each other’s solid technical knowledge. Broader product range This acquisition gives The Switch an opportunity to enhance its offering of world-class products since Wärtsilä’s drive offering is optimized for marine applications. This allows The Switch to broaden its marine business, an area which is taking off with the growing acceptance of the company’s permanent magnet technology. The power drive products are used as proven elements within Wärtsilä’s systems that have already passed various approval requirements and are used in applications ranging from propulsion to drilling. There are currently hundreds of ships sailing with Wärtsilä marine drives. This makes them attractive to other marine customers who are seeking to reduce risk while upgrading to more advanced drive train solutions and hybrid systems. “The Wärtsilä drive products are specially made without compromise for marine applications. These products are ready for integration with various other systems because of their superior communication features, including de facto industry standard interfaces and remote management possibilities. It is also possible to separate the logistics for cabinets and power modules by shipping them later to avoid damages during the long installation times at shipyards,” says Jukka-Pekka Mäkinen, President and CEO of The Switch.   Wider market access As part of The Switch, the power drives unit will be able to explore new audiences to expand its business. It will also be better positioned to serve customers thanks to The Switch’s extensive international sales and marketing network as well as to offer customers strong after-sales support. Thanks to Yaskawa’s involvement in the investment, the mother company will demonstrate its continued support and interest to ensure that The Switch becomes a major player in its chosen area. For the marine segment, The Switch works closely with Yaskawa as an integrated team and thereby is able to offer this wider product range globally. “At the moment, the oil and gas market is in a slump. Yet, we are taking a longer perspective in our views of this market. Now is good time to engineer future-proof solutions for marine. Once the market picks up, we’ll be ready to implement them,” says Jukka-Pekka Mäkinen. About The Switch The Switch, a Yaskawa company, is a pioneer in advanced drive train technology. The company has an installed base of over 11 GW of megawatt-class permanent magnet machine and converter packages. The main focus areas are wind, marine and special industrial solutions.

Amigo Loans guarantor agreement deemed unenforceable by court

Guarantor loan provider Amigo Loans, which markets itself as a loan option for people with bad credit, has had a recent claim against a guarantor dismissed by a district judge after it was found that the company had breached principal obligations under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, as well as other acts and regulations. This has resulted in the guarantor agreement being deemed unenforceable. Amigo Loans was seeking a guarantor, Miss Abbas, to pay debt in excess of £5,000. However, the case was dismissed and permission to appeal refused after District Judge Beck concluded that the guarantor agreement could not be enforced because there was no evidence to suggest that a copy of the borrower’s agreement was provided to the defendant, who was supported by Landlord Advice UK, before numerous requests from Miss Abbas. Initially, it is understood that Amigo Loans believed the guarantor was not entitled to the agreement due to data protection laws. The evidence also indicates that Amigo Loans failed to serve a cancellation notice on the guarantor. Sasha Charles, Housing Lawyer and Director of Landlord Advice UK, said, “The case highlights the poor conduct of Amigo Loans and their failure to protect consumers as required. The conduct of Amigo Loans puts all of their guarantors at an unfair disadvantage due to non-compliance. The case should also serve as a warning for landlords and agents, who commonly use unenforceable guarantor agreements and may not be able to claim back their debts should their tenants default on payments.” The Amigo Loans Limited v Abbas trial took place at Reigate Country court on 14th September 2016. Amigo Loans did not attend the court but was represented and submitted a witness statement as evidence. The district judge advised that the evidence was heavily disputed on a point of law before adjourning the hearing so the claimant’s representative could take instructions.

He said: “I was playing NetEnt’s Mega Fortune game a little before bed, and then suddenly the jackpot hit. I was unsure at first if it was true, but it has gradually dawned on me how much I’ve won. I’ll build a house with the money, but otherwise want to just carry on as normal.” Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, said: “Mega Fortune continues to be one of NetEnt’s best performing and most played games, and we’re over the moon that another jackpot has dropped.

VocaliD teams with Tobii Dynavox to Humanize the Voice within Assistive Communication Devices

Stockholm, September 26, 2016: Tobii Dynavox and VocaliD announced today a partnership agreement to bring a new generation of truly personalized voices for those with speech impairment. The partnership gives new and existing users of Tobii Dynavox devices the option to be heard through their own VocaliD voice. “Pairing VocaliD’s personalized, natural-sounding voices with Tobii Dynavox’s industry-leading assistive devices is a game-changer for the millions who have historically relied on a handful of generic, computerized voices,” said Rupal Patel, Founder and CEO of VocaliD. “Every person living with a speech impairment has a unique vocal identity that deserves to be heard, and this partnership will help make this a reality.” VocaliD’s customized voices are uniquely crafted by blending the recipient’s “vocal DNA” with recordings from a matched speech donor from the company’s Voicebank of 14,000+ contributors of all ages from over 110 countries around the world. Any voice donor can also use their own recordings to craft a personalized voice without the need for blending. For users with progressive conditions, such as ALS, this solution is a means to preserve and digitize their unique voice for their Tobii Dynavox device. “We are excited to offer this cutting-edge innovation to our customers and provide a new dimension in personalization,” says Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox. “Our partnership with VocaliD presents an extraordinary opportunity for people to express their thoughts and personality like never before.” Now, Tobii Dynavox users like Max Plansky, a teenager with cerebral palsy from Danvers, MA, finally has a voice of his own. As Max’s father Michael explains, “Max’s device allowed him to participate in conversations. With his VocaliD voice, Max is now empowered to be himself as he gets to express his thoughts in his own voice, not someone else’s. Whenever he speaks I can hear his soul in his voice – can't put a price on that.” To order a Tobii Dynavox compatible custom VocaliD voice visit https://www.vocalid.co/products or http://www.tobiidynavox.com/VocaliD.
