Dr. Ahmad’s clinical philosophy reflects the wisdom of the Greek physician Hippocrates: it is more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has.

“Our bodies are a unique function of both our genetics and our environment. I am committed to understanding each individual’s differences, getting to know the patient behind the illness, and providing the best treatment with therapy, medication and nutrition.”

Chart the Course

Triad knows you are looking to collect as much information as you can about your competitors.  One of our favorite Sun Tzu quotes is “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”  This is particularly fitting for competitive intelligence.  In order to be as strategic as possible, we encourage our clients to take stock of their own potential. We then work with them to figure out what questions we really need to answer about their competition, to make a difference in their future planning.  When you ask a question, you should know what you will do with the answer.

Light the Way

Triad views our process as highly interactive. We want to communicate with you throughout the project, so that as intelligence is gathered, it can be processed and redirected. Key Intelligence Topics get revisited regularly to make sure we are asking the best questions to the most knowledgeable sources.

Make it happen

With a well-designed research plan, a diverse contact list, and highly skilled analysts, Triad will confidently present you with the most insightful intelligence attainable. Since the process includes mapping out your strategy early on, our reports can deliver concise and actionable findings to help you and your team put your brand on the right path forward.

  • Alissa Pharma is a new biotechnology company focusing on radioimmunotherapy with novel targeted antibodies for hematology and solid tumors.
  • Alissa Pharma has a patented platform technology for the development of bispecific monoclonal antibodies combined with radioisotopes to address unmet medical needs in hematology and oncology.
  • Lead Product: Ferritarg: 90Y antiferritin polyclonal antibody is ready to enter into a phase III trial. Originally developed for relapsed and refractory Hodgkin lymphoma by two well-known US institutions (Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and MD Anderson in Houston), Ferritarg has already demonstrated safety and efficacy in Phase I/II clinical trials in more than 300 patients.
  • Alissa Pharma has secured the worldwide rights for Ferritarg in all radiopharmaceutical indications and the preclinical dossier is completed.
  • The market potential is in excess of $100 million in US alone in this indication based on an estimated cost per patient of $60,000. The Orphan Drug Status for Ferritarg, already obtained in both Europe and the US for the Hodgkin lymphoma indication, offers a fast track regulatory pathway for approval and provides market exclusivity for 10 and 7 years in Europe and in the US, respectively, from the approval date.
  • AMB8LK: 90Y antiferritin chimerized monoclonal antibody is in preclinical development for the treatment of pancreatic cancer (pancreatic cancer cells overexpress ferritin). Preclinical data indicated that AMB8LK has a very high affinity and specificity for human ferritin. AMB8LK, radiolabelled with 90Y showed 98% stability over 7 days.AMB8LK has a broad and well-protected patent estate. The product is ready to commence clinical trials. AMB8LK can also be developed in hepatic cancer and neuroblastoma.

IUSL /Physics Dept. Outcome in Biophotonics Developed at the City University of New York and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Advanced Vein Visualization, AVV-1 provides a superior illumination and visualization of a patient's veins in both the arm and hand.  The AVV-1 has been designed to help a medical practitioner or nurse to accomplish the task of inserting a needle for an IV or blood draw in a more efficient, timely and safe manner. This will help minimize patient and practitioner stress, treatment delays, and infections from failed attempts. Vein illumination is particularly important when the patient is obese, very young, aged and/or has dark skin. Hopefully, the AVV-1 will soon be on the market at blood test centers and hospitals.

The Advanced Vein Visualization instrument is based on basic research conducted and patented by Robert Alfano and Stavros Demos at the Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Lasers (IUSL) of The City College of New York (CCNY). Their research was assisted by Michele Alfano-Berwanger
