Anavex Life Sciences Corp. United States

Anavex™ Life Sciences Corp. is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of novel drug candidates to treat Alzheimer’s, CNS diseases and various types of cancer, which have significant unmet medical needs.

ANAVEX™ 2-73, the Company’s orally available drug candidate developed to treat Alzheimer’s through potential disease modification, has undergone an initial Phase 1 human clinical trial and was well tolerated in doses up to 55mg.  Results from pre-clinical studies indicate that ANAVEX 2-73 demonstrates anti-amnesic and neuroprotective properties.

A highly encouraging synergistic effect has also been observed between ANAVEX 2-73 and donepezil (Aricept®).  The combined therapeutics, referred to as “ANAVEX™ PLUS,” produced up to 80% greater reversal of memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease models versus when the drugs were used individually.

ANAVEX PLUS is believed to be a compelling commercial opportunity.  The clinical trial risk is lower because donepezil (Aricept®) is already on the market, with global sales of $4-billion annually.  Donepezil (Aricept®) is now generic and a patent application has been filed for ANAVEX PLUS which, if granted, would provide protection until 2033.

Headquartered in New York, Anavex is an American publicly traded corporation quoted as AVXL.

Argus Research United States

Argus Research is an independent research firm, and our business is producing, distributing and marketing high-quality investment and economic research.

Our recommendations - BUY, HOLD and SELL - reflect the judgment of an analyst about a company’s prospects as an investment in terms of value, expected growth and risks.

Argus Research does not bring companies public, advise companies on mergers and acquisitions, broker trades, make markets in stocks or manage money. Our independence allows us to make critical judgments about companies that we might not be so free to make were we competing for a firm’s underwriting business. Because we’re not a broker/dealer, we don’t have “inventory” of a stock that we have to move with a tainted recommendation.

In recent years, numerous academic studies have concluded that investors benefit from independent research. Here are some of the benefits:

Aligned Interests

The incentives to bias recommendations upward are stronger for brokerage analysts affiliated with Investment Banks, according to a Stanford Graduate School of Business study.

Transparency & Objectivity

The use of Independent Research through the Global Settlement has pulled optimism out of the market & cleared up rating confusion for retail investors, according to a Washington University/Case Western Reserve University study.

Performance

Independent Research Provider BUY ratings statistically and significantly outperform Investment Bank BUYS, according to a study published by the University of California-Davis, University of Michigan and University of California Los Angeles.

ARL Designs LLC United States

Single cell research has been identified as essential to the discovery of effective new drugs. Our team at ARL Designs has developed the Nano-Droplet Array Plate, an entirely new approach that satisfies this unmet need for isolating and studying individual cells over time.  Key to the proven success of this technology is our unique surface structure which causes nano-droplets to self-align and entrap individual cells at precise locations in large, high-density arrays.  Low fabrication costs will help drive this technology into the rapidly expanding market for 3D cell culture.

Arthur Andrew Medical United States

Founded by current CEO Justin Andrew Marsh. Mr. Marsh, a former microchip engineer and automation control contractor for companies such as Motorola, Intel and Medtronic, developed the company as a majority investor. The company originally specialized in the importation of enzymes and other raw materials.  As a majority of today’s current pharmaceuticals are designed to mimic enzymes, the company strives to develop and discover new medicines through enzyme research and development.


In 2003 Justin Andrew Marsh bought out his minority investors and Arthur Andrew Medical was formed. With the collaboration of well-known enzymologists and best-in-class materials, Arthur Andrew Medical began to create finished products under its own brand-name. In 2003, Neprinol, the world’s most potent systemic enzyme was born. Arthur Andrew's mission is to be the leader in the development of systemic enzyme products in the enzyme-pharma and supplement industry. While other companies develop products based on market trends and fads, Arthur Andrew Medical only adopts products with ingredients that have extensive clinical research for safety and efficacy.
