03/12/2014 [ACCESSWIRE]

Generex Biotechnology Corp. (OTCQB: GNBT) stock volume soared Mar. 11, with 9,325,106 shares changing hands, significantly higher than its three-month average volume of 7,012,285 shares.

This surge in volume comes on the heels of the Worchester, Mass.-based bio-tech company’s Mar. 5 announcement that its wholly-owned subsidiary Antigen Express Inc. has received Notices of Allowance from the United States Patent Office relating to applications for the use of therapeutic vaccines targeting human papilloma virus (HPV) caused cancers as well as to potentially pandemic strains of influenza virus.

Generex has previously received allowances of broad claims surrounding the use of its Ii-Key hybrid technology platform. Both applications relate to vaccines designed using this platform, which was also used to design its AE37 vaccine that is currently in a late Phase II trial to prevent relapse in patients who have had breast cancer.

Moreover, the company has previously published preclinical studies on lead compounds targeting HPV and conducted clinical trials of influenza targeted vaccines in healthy volunteers. While there are prophylactic vaccines on the market to prevent HPV infection, none are approved for use in the therapeutic setting to treat existing cancers caused by HPV. The added potency of Antigen Express vaccines derives from its ability to activate CD4+ T helper cells, which are critical in the generation of a novel immune response.

Breast-Cancer Vaccine Trial

On Feb. 12, Generex promised it would be releasing the results on it breast-cancer vaccine trial at this year's American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting to be held in Chicago from May 30 to June 3, 2014. Ok, so if the news is good, why not share it with the shareholders now? Teasing them and potential investors with promises of information to be revealed at some future date is not a going to win many hearts and minds.

Like so many bio-tech penny stocks, Generex’s success is tied to terms and technologies that baffle the layperson. But what anyone can understand is its dismal financial, which haven’t been updated since Jul. 31, 2013. At that time, the company reported a -$8.5 million net income.

On Mar. 11, GNBT’s share price closed 4 cents, unchanged from share price of the previous day.

Positive Data on Trial

"The six month data has far exceeded our expectations. We were excited to see that patients continued to improve from 3 months to 6 months demonstrating the power of a biological product which can actually remodel tissue and change the course of a disease,” said Kristin Comella, Bioheart's chief science officer, in a written statement. “This phase I study will provide necessary safety and preliminary efficacy of adipose derived stem cells in patients with congestive heart failure. Endpoints include safety, exercise capacity, quality of life, and ejection fraction at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months,” she added.

At the 6 month time point, patients are demonstrating an average improvement in exercise capacity or a six minute walk test of approximately 68 meters as compared to an average improvement of 47 meters at 3 months. Eighty percent of the patients showed an improvement in their exercise capacity from 3 months to 6 months post stem cell injection.

On Mar. 11, BHRT’s share price closed 4 cents, up 1 cent from share price of 3 cents the previous day.
