Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. Provides Update on Multiple Sclerosis Library

Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. Provides Update on Multiple Sclerosis Library

LONDON, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: COT), provided an update to the market today on its Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Library.

Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. (COTI) has been monitoring the synthesis of its first four MS compounds through regular meetings with its synthetic chemistry partner, Dalton Pharma Services (Dalton). "The COTI MS compounds are novel and therefore have not been made before. Each of the first four COTI MS compounds has required the research and development of some entirely new chemistry. As a result, this new chemistry will strengthen our patent position and add to the value realized by future customers" said Dr. Wayne Danter, President and Chief Scientific Officer of COTI.

Dalton has manufactured small amounts of the lead MS compound COT601-M06.1, but has encountered difficulty with scaling up production. Dalton will continue its work synthesizing the lead MS compound COT601-M06.1 and is confident that they will be successful in scaling up production.

Since the November 2006 start of the MS molecule synthesis, COTI has broadened its synthetic chemistry resource base in recognition of the complexity and issues surrounding compounds requiring new chemistry. Delmar Chemicals (Delmar)of Montreal has consulted since February 2007 to synthesize the second two MS compounds starting with the lead MS compound COT604-M06.2. Delmaris also confident that hey will be successful in scaling up production.

"COTI together with our synthetic chemistry partners remain confident that these novel compounds will be successfully synthesized in the near future" said Dr. Wayne Danter. "We will continue our pursuit of seeking an effective treatment for acute MS and we will remain focused on engaging prospective partners and customers with this library of novel, optimized lead compounds."

About Critical Outcome Technologies Inc.

COTI is formed around a unique computational platform technology called CHEMSAS®, which allows for the accelerated identification, profiling and optimization n of targeted small molecules potentially effective in the treatment of human diseases for which current therapy is either lacking or ineffective. COTI's business is focused on the discovery and pre-clinical development of libraries of novel, optimized lead molecules for the treatment of specific cancers, HIV and multiple sclerosis. Currently, five targeted libraries of lead compounds (small cell lung cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV integrase inhibitors, colorectal cancer, and acute myelogenous leukemia in adults) are under active development.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
