biOasis CEO Dr. Mark Day Releases Details of Corporate Plans in Message to Shareholders

Wednesday, June 14, 2017|0 Comments

June 14, 2017, Vancouver, BC

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI) Dr. Mark Day, chief executive officer, has issued a message to shareholders detailing plans for the advancement of the Transcend Platform and the company’s in-house programs.

To the Shareholders of biOasis Technologies Inc.:

As the new CEO of biOasis, I am delighted to send my first message to shareholders, especially at a time when there is such excitement in the neurosciences. Scientists are beginning to understand the surreal complexity of the central nervous system (CNS), how to explore further into its mysteries, to understand its workings, diagnose its diseases, and how to accurately monitor the progress of CNS diseases and the efficacy of the drugs that treat them.

I and my many friends and colleagues in the industry are moving ahead on many fronts. Celgene and Vertex have recently moved into the CNS arena under the guidance of two exceptional R&D leaders. In 2014 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to a team that made breakthrough discoveries on spatial memory, discoveries that have informed my own work.

Several significant breakthroughs were made in the last year. The most exciting for me was with Alzheimer’s disease. Biogen demonstrated their aducanumab could slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in mild-to-moderate patients. This truly was a first and shows that when you prioritize science, you can yield truly astounding results.

And now, as CEO of biOasis, I find myself right in the middle of this new era in neuroscience with what I have previously called, “one of the most unique and promising blood-brain barrier technologies of our time.” Despite all the advances in neuroscience, the ability to transport drugs across the blood-brain barrier has remained elusive, something I believe biOasis and our Transcend Platform can address.

During the past few weeks, I have completed assessments of the Transcend Platform, the studies and data relating to the platform, the company’s Transcend patent portfolio and the two business models developed by the company. I have come away from this process more excited than ever. I believe the Transcend Platform, with its unique abilities, simplicity and comprehensive intellectual property (IP) protection, enables the two business models, and that the company should immediately move forward with them.

In the remainder of this first letter to shareholders, I will discuss the company’s internal clinical programs. In a future message, I will similarly discuss the company’s licensing model. I believe it is important for the pharmaceutical industry to keep pace with biOasis with respect to the delivery of drug candidates across the BBB and into the CNS. The Transcend licensing model will allow our future licensees to do that.

We Are a Science-Focused and Science-Driven Company.
Our focus is to do the right studies, at the right time, for the right reasons, a focus designed to bring success. We must avoid the mistake of rushing into clinical studies until we are certain we have the right endpoints. Otherwise we will succumb to the same issues that have led to the collapse of many biotech companies before us. Our studies and trials must have the right “go” or “no-go” endpoints.

The value in Transcend is the potential to turn non-brain-penetrant drugs into novel medical entities, to deliver them to the brain and to treat a range of disorders across oncology, lysosomal disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. A drug that did not treat the neurological aspects of a disease but can now be non-invasively delivered to the brain is not just a “bio-better,” it is a differentiated product.

In the immediate near term, our aim is to select, in a disciplined manner, the best assets to take into patients. This is not something to be undertaken without due consideration. We need to ensure the drugs have the following characteristics:

  • Target Engagement: The drug must reach its target in the brain (e.g., brain metastasis/glioblastoma) in sufficient quantities to be able to test the hypothesis in the clinic. Most drugs fail because they fail to get enough of the drug to the target.
  • Pharmacodynamic Activity: Once at its destination in the brain, the drug/target interaction should drive a biological consequence (e.g., in schizophrenia this could be the reduction of dopamine, a brain chemical that is excessive in the disease).
  • Patient Selection: We must ensure we have the right patient population to test.

Our plan is to utilize non-invasive, non-human primate (NHP) brain imaging to assess eight targets (across oncology, rare diseases and neurological indications) for their ability to get to the needed site of action in the brain. Only those targets showing actual target engagement will advance into phase 0 microdosing studies. This means we advance only those drugs where we see significant uptake in NHP imaging. The drugs with the best brain uptake will be prioritized for their use in human phase 0 studies.

Details of these studies will be released when our plans are completed. The NHP studies will not directly impact the previously discussed phase 0 clinical trial in oncology. We have already selected a manufacturer to produce the clinical-grade fusion proteins required for the study. The development of the cell line to produce the fusion protein and the manufacturing of the required quantity of the drug will take up to a year to complete.

It’s also essential to recognize one of the main receptors Transcend utilizes to trick the brain into opening the BBB is expressed in important regions of the brain, including areas critical to learning, memory, mood and impulsivity. This receptor is significantly expressed in glioblastomas and in key areas of the brain involved in a plethora of psychiatric and neurological diseases. I think these represent very intriguing targets for biOasis.

With respect to our in-house programs, it is essential for biOasis to have access to the best scientific advice available. To that end, we are currently creating a Scientific Advisory Committee with its members to be chosen from among the world’s top scientists. We are also assessing our internal expertise and management requirements. In the very near future, I expect to be making announcements about strategic appointments to address those requirements.

The biOasis in-house programs are a major undertaking. They are being developed in a robust scientific manner, with meaningful targets chosen to help ensure success. That success could produce ground-breaking results and could herald a broadly-recognized new era in neuroscience. I believe it’s possible, and that’s why I want to be right here at biOasis, and nowhere else.

In my previous roles in pharma, I have passionately driven research and development (R&D) and business development (BD) programs and I have succeeded in delivering new innovations to the R&D and BD processes. As CEO, I intend to bring the same dedication and vision to biOasis.

I want to thank the Executive Chairman, the Board of Directors and all our shareholders for this opportunity. Together we will accomplish great things and I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Mark Day, Ph.D.

The workshop is academic in nature and will be attended by scientists from companies and institutions that are focused on lysosomal storage diseases.

Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a group of inherited metabolic disorders, some of which cause significant impairments in neurological function. The disorders are caused by dysfunctional or missing enzymes that are required for the processing and removal of unwanted cellular materials.

Several LSDs can be treated with enzyme replacement therapy, the intravenous infusion of a solution containing the missing enzyme. However, the blood-brain barrier blocks most therapeutics, including enzymes, from entering the CNS in sufficient quantities to effectively treat neurological disorders. The inability of most therapeutics to enter the CNS has resulted in areas of great unmet medical need.

“Our Transcend peptide technology specifically addresses the issue of delivery of therapeutics across the blood-brain barrier,” said Dr. Mark Day, CEO of biOasis. “From the preclinical data we’ve generated to date, we are excited to move several targets, including enzymes, antibodies and small molecules, through de-risking imaging studies and into clinical assessment. This workshop allows me to meet with many of the stakeholders in this very key market for us.”

biOasis Appoints Mark Day, Ph.D., as Chief Executive Officer and Director

Tuesday, April 25, 2017|0 Comments

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

April 24th, 2017, Vancouver, BC

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI) (the “Company”) has appointed Mark Day, Ph.D., as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, effective immediately. Dr. Day succeeds Mr. Rob Hutchison who will become Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company. Dr. Day will also serve on the biOasis Board of Directors.

Dr. Day most recently served as Head, CNS Virtual Discovery at Purdue Pharma. Prior to joining Purdue, Dr. Day served as Executive Director, Head of External Research & Scouting at Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Dr. Day also serves as Adjunct Associate Professor (Neuroscience) at Yale University.

Dr. Day is widely recognized for his expertise and success in the recognition, evaluation and development of pipeline acquisition and collaboration targets across several therapeutic areas, including neurotherapeutics and rare diseases. In pursuit of business development opportunities, Dr. Day has evaluated over 300 programs, resulting in a uniquely broad knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and its opportunities. In the process, he has developed business and personal relationships with many of the industry’s leading executives.

Demonstrating corporate leadership, Dr. Day has developed business plans for Alexion, Purdue, Wyeth and Bristol-Myers Squibb in multiple functional areas ranging from the development of external research discovery engines and global scouting strategies to the creation of internal venture/investment funds. To facilitate the rapid evaluation of pipeline acquisition and collaboration opportunities, and to lower the costs in time and funding of evaluative processes, Dr. Day has developed strategies that can shorten evaluation periods by several months, leading to early decisions regarding the advancement or early termination of the evaluative processes. Dr. Day has presented his evaluations and formal recommendations at the highest corporate levels. He has also participated in the resulting deal negotiations, leading to several high-profile acquisitions and collaborations.

Dr. Day holds a Ph.D., Neuroscience, from Cardiff University in Wales. He completed Post-Doctoral work in Systems Level Neuroscience at The University of Edinburgh where he investigated the effects of glutamate-receptor subtypes on encoding, memory consolidation and retrieval of paired-associate learning (PAL). Over his academic and industry career, Dr. Day has published over 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers in world-leading journals (e.g. Nature, Science, Proceedings of the Royal Society, Nature Neuroscience). He has managed research teams and has created and chaired a governance team for the management of a $30M R&D budget. He has also established and managed R&D alliances and collaborations with contract research organizations, academic laboratories and foundations in the USA, European Union, Australia and Asia.

Mr. Rob Hutchison, Chairman of the Board of Directors, stated, “The Board of Directors and I are very pleased to welcome Dr. Mark Day to biOasis. Mark has established himself as a leader in the pharmaceutical industry, both as a business development executive and as a neuroscientist. He has a proven ability to discover and evaluate neurotherapeutic pipeline opportunities on both scientific and business levels, to present compelling proposals to potential partners, to manage teams and to negotiate deals. I want to personally welcome Mark and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

biOasis CEO, Dr. Mark Day, commented, “I consider the biOasis Transcend Platform to be one of the most unique and promising blood-brain barrier technologies of our time. Ensuring that experimental medicines are able to reach their targets in the brain has been shown to improve their probability of success. The development of neurotherapeutics has always been limited by the inability to get drugs across the blood-brain barrier. In fact, it’s been nearly impossible to develop drugs that have both the right chemical structures to target CNS diseases, and to have, at the same time, structures that allow them to cross the blood-brain barrier. The two objectives are often completely incompatible.”

“The Transcend Platform may finally give the pharmaceutical industry the ability to design neurotherapeutics with the knowledge that, no matter a drug’s chemical structure, the Transcend peptide can likely be used get it across the blood-brain barrier in a very natural and cost-effective manner. The unmet medical needs for this are huge.”

“I want to thank the biOasis Board of Directors and Rob Hutchison for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to leading the commercial and scientific advancement of the Transcend Platform for the benefit of patients, our pharmaceutical industry partners and licensees, and for biOasis shareholders. I’m looking forward to seeing where this can go.”

biOasis Provides AGM Update – Expanding The biOasis Deal Flow Pipeline

Monday, January 23, 2017|0 Comments

January 23rd, 2017, Vancouver, BC

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on the delivery of therapeutic drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), has provided a corporate update in advance of its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held at 1780 – 400 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, on January 23, 2017 at 10:00 AM, PST.

2016 was a pivotal year for biOasis. Several initiatives and events contributed to the accelerated advancement of the commercialization of Transcendpep, the company’s breakthrough peptide-based platform technology for the transport of therapeutic drugs across the BBB.

Licensing Agreements – Expanding the Deal Flow Pipeline

The depth and quality of the biOasis Deal Flow Pipeline has been significantly expanded and now consists of several projects in various stages of action or development. During 2016 the company announced licensing agreements with Astellas Research Institute of America LLC, and with Vaccinex Inc. In addition, three evaluation and validation studies are underway, and another five agreements are under active development. Still other pharmaceutical companies have completed their initial studies with biOasis, leaving them with decisions to be made about whether, when and in what manner they wish to advance their drug candidates through their internal clinical pipelines.

Pharmaceutical Industry – Increased Confidence in biOasis

Several factors have contributed to the pharmaceutical industry’s increased interest and confidence in biOasis and the Transcend Platform. U.S. patent No. 9,364,567, “Fragments of P97 and uses thereof,” was issued to biOasis on June 14, 2016. This and other patents allow biOasis to readily provide the Transcend peptide’s structural sequence of amino acids and diverse linkers to pharmaceutical companies with the confidence that biOasis’s intellectual property will remain fully protected. For the pharmaceutical companies, the peptide and its patents open up markets for Transcendpep-based fusion proteins and small molecule drugs that will also benefit from similarly strong intellectual property protection.

Industry confidence is also benefitting from the exceptional Transcendpep performance data produced in animal studies conducted by biOasis with several highly reputable third parties. These data indicate that the Transcendpep is not only able to transport large quantities of therapeutic drugs across the BBB, but also that the half-life, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety and other attributes of the transported drugs are not materially affected, and in fact many of these attributes are enhanced by their transport across the BBB by the Transcendpep and linkers.

On a practical level, this increased confidence in biOasis and the Transcend Platform has resulted in greater allocations of funding and resources by the pharmaceutical companies for parallel pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies with disease-state animals. Previously, the pharmas conducted basic pharmacokinetic studies with wild-state animals. The parallel studies allow determination of not only the quantity and location in the brain of a delivered drug, but also its effect on the disease-state animals. The expanded studies are expected to move the licensing processes forward with increasing speed, a benefit to both biOasis and its prospective licensing partners.

Commercialization Strategy – Networking in the Pharmaceutical Industry

biOasis’s continued participation in numerous pharmaceutical industry conferences is also contributing to the expansion of the biOasis Deal Flow Pipeline. During 2016, biOasis attended several events including BIO Europe, BIO International and the 35th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, CA. The increased exposure of the company and the Transcend Platform to the pharmaceutical industry at these conferences continues to pay high dividends for biOasis.

The recent J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference was a very busy time for biOasis with twenty-five meetings over three days. The company met with representatives from some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, as well as representatives from some of the smallest. No matter their size, many of these companies offer some of neuroscience’s most exciting opportunities.

biOasis also met with pre-clinical and clinical Contract Research Organizations that may be able to assist the Company with the advancement of its internal programs through clinical trials. biOasis will require such services for the advancement of its in-house oncology programs. The three days at JPM resulted in the planning of tangible actions on multiple fronts that are expected to commence within the first quarter.

The biOasis Oncology Program – An Important Scientific Paper

biOasis continues to develop its internal business model, the development of plans, specifications and funding for the advancement to human clinical trials of biOasis fusion proteins for the treatment of brain tumors.

On August 29, 2016, biOasis announced the publication of a peer-reviewed scientific paper detailing the results of an in vivo study of the treatment of metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer brain tumors in an animal model using BT2111, biOasis’s Trastuzumab-Melanotransferrin (Transcend) conjugate.

The paper, entitled, “Anti-cancer antibody Trastuzumab-Melanotransferrin conjugate (BT2111) for the treatment of metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer tumors in the brain: an in vivo study,” detailed a study that showed that the biOasis Transcend-Trastuzumab (Herceptin) conjugate, BT2111, reduced the number of metastatic human HER2-positive breast cancer tumors in the brains of test animals by 68 percent compared with control animals. Tumors that remained after treatment were 57 percent to 60 percent smaller than those in the control animals, resulting in an overall reduction of tumor volume of over 85 percent. In contrast, neither the administration of Trastuzumab alone nor MTf (Transcend) alone was accompanied by a reduction in brain tumor number or size.

CEO’s Summary

Commented biOasis CEO, Rob Hutchison, “On a personal note, without question the past two years have been at the same time both challenging and very exciting. 2015 saw us complete the balance of the characterization of the peptide from 2014 along with an understanding of how to best link or combine Transcendpep into a host of therapeutic compounds. “

“2016 brought the start and rapid expansion of the biOasis Deal Flow Pipeline – the signing of two license agreements and now eight evaluation studies either started or are about to commence. I’d personally say that significant milestones were met.”

“On the public side, I fully understand that although we within the Company are busy and excited, that sometimes due to confidentiality issues, the excitement doesn’t make it out beyond the four walls of the Company. The timelines of the pharmas are so variable and they sometimes seem to drag on. This is where I believe an expanding Deal Flow Pipeline becomes important. As time passes, it should enable us to see real progress in multiple areas and to provide more information that will allow our internal excitement to be shared with all of our shareholders.”

“The Annual General Meeting always heralds a new year and the closing of the old. We at biOasis are moving forward with high confidence that our accomplishments in 2016 will help us achieve our hopes and expectations for 2017.”

biOasis Announces Publication of Scientific Paper – Transcend-Based Anti-Cancer Antibody BT2111 Crosses the Blood-Brain Barrier and Shows Efficacy in the Treatment of Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer Tumors in the Brains of Animal Model

August 29, 2016, Vancouver, BC

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), today announced the publication of a peer-reviewed scientific paper detailing the results of an in-vivo study of the treatment of Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer brain tumors in an animal model using BT2111, biOasis’s Trastuzumab-Melanotransferrin (Transcend) Conjugate.

The paper, entitled, “Anti-cancer Antibody Trastuzumab-Melanotransferrin Conjugate (BT2111) for the Treatment of Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer Tumors in the Brain: An In-Vivo Study,” was published in Pharmaceutical Research, an official Journal of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists. (Citation: Nounou, M.I., Adkins, C.E., Rubinchik, E. et al. Pharm Res (2016). doi:10.1007/s11095-016-2015-0)

The results detailed in the paper are from studies performed under the direction of Dr. Paul Lockman at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy. In the study it was shown that the biOasis Transcend-Trastuzumab (Herceptin®) conjugate, BT2111, reduced the number of metastatic human HER2+ breast cancer tumors in the brains of test animals by 68% compared to control animals. Tumors that remained after treatment were 57% to 60% smaller than those in the control animals. In contrast, neither the administration of Trastuzumab alone nor hMTf (Transcend) alone was accompanied by a reduction in brain tumor number or size.

In the final paragraph of the paper’s “Results” section, the authors state, “The results presented in this study provide evidence that BT2111 has efficacy in treating brain metastasis in preclinical models and validates the role hMTf has as a vector (Transcend vector platform) for the transport of antibodies across the BBB. This study has shown that Transcend can deliver Herceptin®, a chemotherapeutic used to treat HER2-positive breast cancer, in sufficient quantity to the brain to significantly reduce the number of HER2-positive metastatic brain tumors. The ability to more effectively permeate both the blood-brain and the blood-tumor barrier opens the door for the creation of new drugs designed to treat a wide variety of neurological diseases and disorders. Additionally, Transcend vector platform offers the potential to take existing clinically approved drugs that are near their end of patent life and extend them.”

In May, 2015, biOasis announced continued success with the Transcend Platform using its lead blood-brain barrier delivery vector, melanotransferrin peptide or MTfp, to deliver Trastuzumab (TZM) across the blood-brain barrier. The results revealed that the Transcend fusion protein MTfp-TZM showed increased activity against Her2+ brain tumors when compared to Transcend/Trastuzumab conjugates that biOasis has previously tested, including the BT2111 conjugate used in the study at Texas Tech University.

Rob Hutchison, biOasis CEO, stated, “We knew the researchers from Texas Tech University were planning to submit a paper for publication. Because it was their paper, we simply waited for the process to unfold and the wait was very much worth it. The paper has been peer-reviewed, published and has been extremely well received. The publishing of this work is very important to biOasis in order to obtain scientific acceptance in academic communities and within the pharmaceutical industry. On behalf of biOasis I want express our gratitude to all of the contributors to this very important study.”

biOasis Announces the Issuance of a US Patent for the Delivery of Therapeutic Agents Across the Blood-Brain Barrier Using Polypeptides Derived From the Transcend Protein Delivery Vector

Sunday, November 29, 2015|0 Comments

pdficon_small Download this as a PDF

Vancouver, BC Canada – November 29th 2015

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI) (“biOasis or the “Company), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (“BBB”), announces the issuance of a US patent covering the delivery of therapeutic agents by using polypeptides from the company’s Transcend BBB delivery vector.

biOasis’ Transcend Platform was originally based on the protein known as melanotransferrin (MTf or p97). Researchers at biOasis hypothesized that smaller sequences within the 80 kDa protein would bind to specific receptors for this protein thus initiating transport across the BBB through a process know as Receptor Mediated Transcytosis. Work to show that this is indeed correct has resulted in issuance of a patent entitled “P97 Fragments with Transfer Activity”.

“As our team worked with Transcend in pre-clinical models to prove its utility to delivery therapeutic agents across the BBB, they also conducted over four years of experiments to find active polypeptide fragments from within the 738 amino acid sequence of Transcend that where involved in binding specific receptors that are involved in transport through the BBB.” said Rob Hutchison CEO. “As we embarked down that lengthy process we made a number of discoveries. In 2010 we set in place a strategic plan to broaden and securely protect the assets of the Company, this patent was a key part of that journey.” “Intellectual Property, patents, are a key cornerstone to our commercial licensing strategy and as these patents issue, our license models increase in value, thereby increasing the overall value of the Transcend Platform.”

biOasis Announces the Issuance of a Key US Patent for the Delivery Through the Blood-Brain Barrier of Therapeutic Antibodies – Inclusive of Trastuzumab – to Treat Her2/neu Brain Metastases

  • biOasis’ Transcend Platform has shown great utility in pre-clinical animal models to deliver therapeutic compounds into the brain at sufficient levels to reach a therapeutic effect. Without the Transcend delivery vehicle these compounds would otherwise be excluded from the brain due to the presence of the protective blood-brain barrier.
  • The issuance of this patent indicates that compounds, such as in this case Trastuzumab can be, with the help of Transcend, protected under the issuance of a new patent, including for a new therapeutic indication – brain metastases. Trastuzumab coupled to the transport vector Transcend thus offers a potential treatment for this dreadful cancer.

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQB:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), announces the full and final issuance of a US patent covering the delivery by Transcend of cancer therapeutics to the brain to treat an aggressive form of brain cancer – Her2+/nue brain metastases.

Her2+ brain cancer is a form of an aggressive breast cancer that travels (metastasizes) to the brain at a high frequency. In 2012 it was noted that upwards of 20% of Her2+ breast cancer patients exhibited brain metastases. Today, the incidence has been reported to be as high as 40%*. Arguably this is due to the tremendous job achieved by the primary drug used to treat this form of cancer, Trastuzumab (brand name Herceptin©). Since its introduction as a therapeutic treatment, Trastuzamab has increased survival significantly, but as a result there is a higher incidence of Her2/neu brain metastases.   This drug alone does not readily cross the blood-brain barrier and, as such, the treatment of metastatic brain cancer presents a significant challenge to physicians. biOasis, in collaboration with a number of independent third parties, including Texas Tech University, the National Research Council of Canada and the BC Cancer Research Centre, has shown some highly promising results using biOasis’ combination of Trastuzumab with its Transcend delivery platform to deliver the therapeutic to the brain.

“We filed this patent in 2012 when we first obtained our positive results with the Trastuzamab-Transcend combination and to have the patent fully granted by 2015 is a wonderful example of the tremendous opportunity for the Transcend family as a whole” said Rob Hutchison CEO, “ and it shows that the marriage of our Transcend platform with an on or off patent therapeutic can obtain patent protection for our shareholders. But much more importantly, this may one day offer a treatment for those patients who may see brain involvement of this dreaded disease even after beating the primary site location. This patent greatly enhances biOasis’ intellectual property position and along with collaborators, such as the Harvard research team at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, enables us to advance in earnest our MTfp-TZM program with the ultimate goal to have a therapeutic protocol for Her2/neu brain metastases.”

biOasis Announces the Successful Delivery to the CNS of an Enzyme used to Treat Hunter Syndrome

Friday, July 31, 2015|0 Comments

July 31st, 2015

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), announces the completion and assessment of the data in the knockout mouse model of Hunter Syndrome (MPS II) performed in Padova, Italy, by a team led by Dr. Maurizio Scarpa of the Brains for Brain Foundation.

This knockout mouse model of Hunter Syndrome (MPS II) showed that the Transcend fusion protein, MTfp-I2S (MTfp-Iduronate-2-sulfatase), was able to cross the blood-brain barrier, reached therapeutic levels in the CNS and significantly decreased the number of lysosomal storage vacuoles in the cytoplasm of brain cells.

The study also showed that MTfp-I2S normalizes the GAG level in the periphery (liver & urine) showing that the recombinant enzyme is active and distributed throughout the body. The MTfp-I2S treatments were safe, showing no toxicity, and the activity of the enzyme was not affected by the MTfp peptide carrier.

Sufferers of the Lysosomal Storage Disease, Mucopolysaccharidoses Type II (MPS II or Hunter Syndrome), are unable to produce sufficient quantities of the enzyme Iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S), resulting in the impaired degradation and removal of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) from the body. The resulting accumulation of lysosomal storage vacuoles in cells leads to the death of these cells, causing severe physical and mental impairments.

Dr. Maurizio Scarpa, President of the Brains for Brain Foundation stated, “The study that we have recently performed in collaboration with biOasis produced some exciting data. I am very encouraged that after some adjustments regarding dosing, we might be able to move this program into the clinic. My goal and I am sure the goal of biOasis as well, is to help children with this devastating disease. I am very encouraged that based on these results, Transcend may play an important role in helping us achieve our goals.”

CEO Rob Hutchison commented, “It has been a pleasure working with Dr. Scarpa and the Brains for Brain foundation.  When we looked to advance our Lysosomal Storage Disease program, Dr. Scarpa along with Dr. Begley where our first choices and we were very pleased when, through their foundation, Brains for Brain, they agreed to work with us.  Working with these world leaders and their team at the University of Padova has been very exciting for us. The data that they have generated has provided biOasis with confirmation that we’ve been on the right track with our Transcend peptide carrier and we are now poised to potentially help make a difference to children coping with this awful disease.”

About The Brains for Brain Foundation

Mission: B4B aims to develop new and innovative therapeutic strategies to cross the Blood-Brain Barrier, a capillary system that shields and defends the CNS from circulating neurotoxins. It has a very important filtering protective function but unfortunately also prevents access to the brain by most candidate therapeutic drugs under development for CNS diseases. 
 The B4B mission consists of the promotion of an International Network of health professionals in rare disorders, specifically in the field of rare neurological pediatric diseases. The purposes of the FOUNDATION are to support the following activities in the field of rare Neurological Disorders: – scientific research – knowledge dissemination – social and socio-medical assistance – health assistance.

biOasis Releases Results From an Ischemic Stroke Model with Transcend BBB carrier peptide (MTfp): MTfp-­‐siRNA Reduces Both the Damage Caused By Infarct and Significantly Improves Neurological Score

Monday, March 16, 2015|0 Comments

pdficon_small Download this as a PDF

-­The Ability to Deliver siRNAs to the Brain Represents a Major Potential Advancement for Treatment of CNS Disorders by Modifying Expression of Disease-­‐Causing Genes

-­Results are announced from a well-­‐established animal ischemic stroke model performed at the National Research Council Canada with the biOasis Transcend carrier peptide, MTfp and siRNA (MTfp-­‐siRNA)

-­Two KEY therapeutic effects were shown with MTfp-­‐siRNA: High degree of reduction of the area of blood vessel infarct and improvement of overall brain activity as determined by neurological scoring.

March 16th, 2015

BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-­‐brain barrier (BBB), announces the results from an animal ischemic stroke model performed at the National Research Council Canada with the biOasis Transcend carrier peptide, MTfp and siRNA (MTfp-­‐siRNA). Two key therapeutic effects were shown with MTfp-­‐siRNA; A high degree of reduction of the area of blood vessel infarct and improvement of overall brain activity as determined by neurological scoring.

On July 25th, 2014, biOasis announced that its newly discovered carrier peptide (MTfp), part of the biOasis Transcend family of carrier technologies, effectively delivered siRNA across the BBB and into brain cells. The company also announced that it achieved the goal of silencing the expression of a selected target gene in the brain by approximately 50%. This study prompted the company to move to a model of disease where therapeutic effects could be measured.

Ischemic stroke is the most common type of stroke in humans and an animal model that mimics stroke was chosen to establish the effectiveness of MTfp-­‐siRNA treatment administered immediately prior to induction of ischemic stroke.

Key Findings of Ischemic Stroke Model Treated with MTfp-­‐siRNA:

(1) The area of infarct (damage) was highly reduced in the animals treated with MTfp-­‐siRNA. Brain images revealed significantly less stroke damage in brain sections from animals treated with the MTfp-­‐siRNA when compared to the same brain regions in the control animals. The brain section images may be viewed below. The images show that there is more stroke damage (white areas) in the five sections from control animals (Left Panel) when compared to the same brain regions in the animals with stroke treated with the MTfp-­‐siRNA (Right Panel).

(2) Thirty-­‐minutes after induction of stroke, the neurological scores of the animals treated with the MTfp-­‐siRNA were significantly better than those of control animals. At 24 hours, controls animals demonstrated a slight improvement in neurological scores while MTfp-­‐siRNA treated animals showed a vast improvement and exhibited nearly normal neurological scores.

“The results clearly demonstrate that in an established animal model of stroke, therapeutic levels of siRNA that down-­‐regulate the expression of a key pathogenic gene were successfully delivered by MTfp to the brain, resulting in a significant reduction of infarct damage and improvement of neurological scores associated with healthy brain function,” said Dr. Wilfred Jefferies, biOasis Founding Scientist.

CEO Rob Hutchison added, “biOasis is the first company to show delivery of siRNAs to the brain of living animals. Our findings open the way to development of new strategies for therapeutic interventions for a variety of brain disorders.”

About Transcend

Transcend is biOasis’ proprietary platform for the delivery of therapeutics across the BBB to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of metastatic brain cancers as well as neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases. The BBB represents the single greatest challenge in treating neurological disorders. The ability to effectively and safely breech the BBB offers the opportunity  for biOasis to deliver therapeutics into the brain. Transcend was originally based on MTf (melanotransferrin or P97) where the full-­‐length protein was conjugated to therapeutic PBS-stroke MTfp-SiRNA-stroke White = infarct area molecules. Recently biOasis identified a family of peptides within MTf that facilitates receptor mediated transcytosis. The lead peptide carrier was used in the work reported above.

biOasis Initiates MPS II Study with Renowned Lysosomal Storage Disease Expert Dr. Maurizio Scarpa and The Brains for Brain Foundation

One of the most challenging aspects of treating Lysosomal Storage Diseases is the transport of the required enzymes across the Blood-Brain Barrier and into the Central Nervous System.

September 18, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), the pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on the delivery of therapeutic drugs across the blood-brain barrier (“BBB”), announces a study to investigate the ability of its Transcend BBB transport platform technologies to deliver to the Central Nervous System of a knockout animal model, the therapeutic enzyme required to correct the neurological disorder, MPS II, or Hunter Syndrome. The study will be conducted by way of a biOasis grant to the Brains for Brain Foundation (“B4B”) of Padova, Italy, headed by renowned Lysosomal Storage Disease expert, Dr. Maurizio Scarpa, Founder and President of the Foundation. The study will be performed at the “Diagnosis and Therapy of Lysosomal Disorders” research facility of the University of Padova, and will be coordinated by Dr. Rosella Tomanin.

The human enzyme to be administered in the study, Idursulfase (I2S), is missing or functionally deficient in human sufferers of Hunter Syndrome. The study will use a knockout animal model that has shown the same characteristics as in the human form of MPS II. The study will demonstrate whether a therapeutic quantity of I2S can be delivered in the animal’s brain using biOasis’ fusion proteins, MTf-I2S and the Transcend peptide- based MTfp-I2S, and whether the proteins can restore normal I2S function after intravenous administration.

Through the mechanism of Receptor Mediated Transcytosis, the biOasis fusion proteins, MTfp-I2S and MTf-I2S, are designed to cross the BBB and to allow the I2S to localize in the lysosomes of brain cells. The study will allow biOasis and B4B to not only study the effects of the fusion MTfp and MTf proteins on the restoration of enzymatic activity, but also the effect of the proteins’ administration in brain parenchyma cells and in cells from various other tissues. Preliminary experiments using this animal model of MPS II have suggested that Enzyme Replacement Therapy with recombinant I2S may be effective in reducing the build-up of GAG stores that result from the I2S enzyme deficiency.

The results of the study will be used to support the design of clinical studies to evaluate the efficacy of MTfp-I2S and MTf-I2S in MPS II patients.

“The delivery of enzymes to the brain in a safe and efficient manner would offer clinicians a way to treat patients suffering from this dreadful disease,” said Dr. Scarpa, President of B4B. “A number of invasive techniques have been deployed to deliver these enzymes into the brain and these techniques have demonstrated in humans that when the enzymes get there, they can be effective. The biOasis technology that we are going to study may offer a non- invasive, broad solution to the disorders.”

The Brains for Brain Foundation was founded and also funded in 2007 by Dr. Maurizio Scarpa and the Foundation’s Vice-President, Dr. David Begley. B4B’s stated mission is the following: “B4B aims to develop new and innovative therapeutic strategies to cross the Blood-Brain Barrier, a capillary system which shields and defends the CNS from circulating neurotoxin compounds. It has a very important filtering protective function but unfortunately also prevents access to the brain by most candidate therapeutic drugs under development for CNS diseases. B4B mission consists of the promotion of an International Network of health professionals in rare disorders, specifically in the field of rare neurological paediatric diseases. The purposes of the Foundation are to support the following activities in the field of rare Neurological Disorders: scientific research, knowledge dissemination, social and socio-medical assistance and health assistance.”

Rob Hutchison, biOasis’ CEO, commented, “biOasis chose to work with Dr. Scarpa and the B4B Foundation he founded for a number of reasons. Dr. Scarpa has dedicated his career to helping children fight these dreadful diseases. He and Dr. Begley of the Foundation are world leading experts in the field. Dr. Scarpa, together with Dr. Tomanin, also guides a research facility at the University of Padova and they have several years of expertise with this animal model. We expect to have this study completed later this year with evaluation of data to follow.”

About Lysosomal Storage Diseases

Lysosomal Storage Diseases form a group of more than 50 distinct diseases that cause physiological and neurological deterioration, predominantly in children. An LSD develops when a particular enzyme is missing or produced in insufficient quantities, resulting in the cellular build-up of toxic by-products that cause disease pathologies throughout the body, including, in their severe forms, in the Central Nervous System.

About Hunter Syndrome (MPS II)

Hunter Syndrome, also known as Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), is a rare genetic disorder that occurs when the Idursulfase (I2S) enzyme is either missing or does not function properly. The enzyme deficit impairs the breakdown of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) in the lysosomes and results in GAG build-up in harmful amounts in certain cells and tissues. The build-up, which usually begins in early childhood, eventually causes permanent, progressive damage affecting appearance, mental development, organ function and physical abilities.

About The Transcend Program

The Transcend Program consists of biOasis’ proprietary platforms for the delivery of therapeutics across the blood-brain barrier to address a wide spectrum of unmet medical needs. The program includes biOasis’ ultra-small Melanotransferrin-derived Transcend peptide vector (“MTfp“) that has the ability to shuttle a wide variety of therapeutics and biologics into the brain with their transport not being limited by the sizes of the transported therapeutics or their compositions.

The transport of therapeutics across the BBB represents the single greatest challenge in the treatment of neurological disorders. The ability to effectively permeate the BBB offers researchers the opportunity to test promising new therapeutics as well as the potential to develop new and more effective formulations of already-approved therapies, thus expanding the commercial value and patent life of the underlying intellectual property.

biOasis Advances Its Lysosomal Storage Disease Program with a Knockout Model for Sandhoff Disease

“biOasis initiates pivotal study using a knockout model for Sandhoff Lysosomal Storage Disease”

SEPTEMBER 9, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSXV:BTI), announces the commencement of a new phase of its Lysosomal Storage Disease program with a study focused on a knockout model for Sandhoff Disease. The study, to be conducted at The University of British Columbia (“UBC”), will assess the use of therapeutics based on biOasis’ proprietary Blood-Brain Barrier vectors, Transcend and Transcendpep, to correct enzyme deficiencies within the Central Nervous Systems of genetically engineered animals deficient in the enzyme β-hexosaminidase subunit beta (“HEXB”), which is functionally deficient in sufferers of Sandhoff Disease.

The colony of HEXB-deficient animals that populate the “knockout” model have been under development for several months in the UBC laboratory of biOasis’ founding scientist, Dr. Wilfred Jefferies of the University’s renowned Michael Smith Laboratories. The animals will undergo six weeks of treatment with biOasis’ proprietary therapeutics, fMTf-HEXB, a fusion protein consisting of Transcend and β-hexosaminidase subunit beta, and fMTfp-HEXB, a fusion protein consisting of Transcendpep and β-hexosaminidase subunit beta. The treatment period will commence in October when the colony’s age and weight are ideal for treatment.

This is the first study where biOasis is utilizing fusion protein versions of its platform technologies. Both fMTf-HEXB and fMTfp-HEXB are classified as chimeric fusion proteins, hybrid proteins that are made of polypeptides that have varying functions or physico- chemical patterns. In the past, biOasis has used chemical conjugation methods to produce therapeutics for test purposes. The method was used because it is faster and less expensive for “proof of concept” purposes. However, chemical conjugations generally do not produce consistent molecular structures. biOasis’ chimeric fusion proteins are designed to guarantee that each therapeutic is produced in a structurally consistent manner and that the binding sites of the respective Transcend and Transcendpep molecules are not masked, theoretically enhancing both the binding activity and the transport of therapeutics across the Blood- Brain Barrier.

“Our recent discovery and subsequent validation of Transcendpep as a carrier or shuttle of therapeutics into the brain are extremely encouraging. We now plan to treat animal that lack the HEXB enzyme and therefore mimic the human form of Sandhoff disease with the HEXB-Transcendpep fusion molecules. This is a crucial step towards advancing this novel therapeutic approach to the clinic,” said lead researcher, Professor Jefferies.

“This study at UBC kicks off a new phase of our LSD program,” said Rob Hutchison, CEO of biOasis Technologies. “All of the work that we and our partners have been doing with Transcendpep has given us the confidence that this program has the potential to be of great value for biOasis and its shareholders. To optimize the program, our team along with help from one of our partners, have worked to prepare clinically acceptable test materials and to this end, we’re introducing fusion-based therapeutics rather than those that are chemically conjugated. After a lot of hard work and extensive planning, we’re very pleased to be advancing our LSD program with this pivotal study.”

biOasis Announces NSERC Grant to The University of British Columbia in Support of Collaborative R&D Work with biOasis

SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSXV:BTI), announces that the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (“NSERC”) has awarded a grant to the University of British Columbia (“UBC”) in support of the university’s collaborative research and development programs with biOasis Technologies Inc. The University and biOasis continue to develop biOasis’ extensive intellectual property relating to Transcend and Transcendpep, protein vectors designed to shuttle existing therapeutic drugs across the Blood-Brain Barrier (“BBB”) for the potential treatment of previously untreatable Central Nervous System (“CNS”) diseases and conditions.

The NSERC Collaborative Research & Development matching fund grant will extend for up to five years, pending continued industry support, with a total value of up to $750,000. The grant commences immediately with the aim of further optimizing the BBB shuttling technology owned by biOasis Technologies Inc., initially for the application to clinical treatment of Lysosomal Storage Diseases (“LSDs”).

The award is intended to help expand the collaborative work between biOasis Technologies Inc. and UBC researcher Professor Wilfred Jefferies of the Michael Smith Laboratories. The proposed R&D is based on Dr. Jefferies’ original discovery of a protein molecule that allows therapeutics such as lysosomal enzymes to cross the BBB and enter the brain.

The BBB is formed by the brain capillary endothelium and prevents large-molecule neurotherapeutics and most small-molecule drugs from entering the brain. As a result, many diseases in the brain are untreatable. Overcoming the difficulty of delivering therapeutic agents to specific regions of the brain presents a major challenge to the effective treatment of most brain disorders.

LSD’s are a group of more than fifty distinct diseases that causephysiological and neurological deterioration, predominantly in children. An LSD develops when a particular enzyme is missing or produced in insufficient quantities, resulting in the cellular build-up of toxic by-products that cause disease pathologies throughout the body, especially in the CNS. Dr. Wilf Jefferies is the principal investigator and research team leader with expertise in creating novel platform technologies for the treatment of human diseases. The research team also includes the R&D team at biOasis lead by Dr. Reinhard Gabathuler and Dr. Mei-Mei Tian and including up to 10 graduate and undergraduate students and research technicians with expertise in bioengineering, nanotechnology, molecular biology, protein chemistry and related disciplines. The teams are focused on optimizing and testing the Transcendpep technology to maximize the delivery of enzymes, biologics and other therapeutic payloads to the brain.

“We’re very pleased that this project has been supported through the NSERC Collaborative Research & Development (CRD) grant. This peer-reviewed research grant provides additional validation and support of our proprietary technologies and approaches for treatment of brain diseases. This grant comes at an opportune time as it will assist in the rapid implementation of new technologies developed in collaboration with UBC for the potential treatment of Lysosomal Storage Diseases and other diseases of the brain,“ said Rob Hutchison, CEO of biOasis Technologies Inc.

biOasis Releases Quantitative Results: siRNA-Transcendpep reduces target gene expression in the brain

The Ability to Deliver siRNAs to the Brain Represents a Major Advancement in the Potential Treatment of CNS Disorders by Modifying Expression of Disease-Causing Genes – Results from initial experiments show modification of gene expression by 40% to 50%

Thursday, July 25th, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSX.V:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), announced on May 6th, 2014, that its newly discovered carrier peptide—Transcendpep—effectively delivered siRNA across the BBB and into brain cells. The company announces that it has achieved effective knock-down of the expression of a target gene in the brain in a sequence-specific manner. Independent analysis of brain tissue revealed that, not only did Transcendpep deliver the siRNA to the brain tissue, but it also reduced the expression of the target gene by 40% to 50% after a single dose.

“Injection of a small bioconjugate of siRNA coupled to Transcendpep achieved a significant reduction in target gene expression in the brain,” says Dr. Wilfred Jefferies, Founding Scientist of biOasis. “This represents a potential advancement for reducing disease- associated gene expression that often leads to the pathology present in a variety of brain diseases.”

“These findings expand the preeminent standing of biOasis in the area of BBB carriers and provides vast opportunities for Transcendpep to act as a platform to significantly advance the treatment of brain diseases,” says Rob Hutchison, CEO. “Due to the vast market potential of siRNA delivery to the brain, we are focused on advancing this program to the IND stage and commencing Phase I Clinical Trials as soon as possible. This adds to biOasis’ development programs in the delivery of therapeutics across the BBB, which includes our metabolic disease programs for lysosomal storage diseases such as Hunter Syndrome and Sandhoff Disease and our oncology program (Transcendpep-Herceptin©) for the treatment of brain metastases of HER2+ breast cancer. In addition to the aforementioned programs, we continue to further our partnership with MedImmune and develop relationships with other pharmaceutical companies.”

biOasis Delivers siRNA to the Brain Using its Transcend Peptide Vector

The Ability to Deliver siRNAs to the Brain Represents a Major Advance in the Potential Treatment of a Host of CNS Disorders through Modifying Expression of Disease Causing Genes

MAY 6th, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSXV:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, has shown that a newly discovered peptide vector form of Transcend – Transcendpep – effectively delivers siRNA across the blood-brain barrier and into brain cells. This is an exciting development for potential treatment of a variety of brain disorders. RNA interference (RNAi) of gene function can be triggered by small single-stranded RNA molecules (small-interfering RNA; siRNA), which function to silence target genes in a sequence-specific manner. Therapeutics based on siRNA have been heralded to have the potential to reverse and eradicate human disease by targeting specific genes that cause or modify disease outcome. However, since siRNAs on their own do not cross the blood-brain barrier the targeting of genes within the brain was not assumed to be achievable. biOasis has now demonstrated delivery of siRNA across the blood-brain barrier using its new peptide vector, Transcendpep. After systemic injection, siRNA coupled to Transcendpep was shown to shuttle into the brain and became localized within brain cells. Since a variety of different siRNAs (specific for different disease-associated genes) can be delivered, this is a significant achievement for the Company and for the field of molecular therapeutics. Transcendpep-siRNA constructs thus become a potential cornerstone technology for development of new therapeutics for brain disorders, including, cancers of the brain, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuropsychiatric diseases, and for a variety of neuromuscular diseases, pain, and infections.

“RNAi is a promising and novel therapeutic approach for treatment of many CNS diseases. The successful delivery of Transcendpep-siRNA conjugates to the brain is therefore a significant advance and provides the foundation for exploring the potential of siRNA-based therapeutics for a host of different diseases of the Central Nervous System” says biOasis Founding Scientist Professor Wilf Jefferies.

About Transcend & Transcend pep

Transcend and Transcend pep (a family of peptides derived from Transcend) offer the creation of a new class of drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of brain metastatic cancer and other brain disorders, such as neurodegeneration and metabolic disease. The blood-brain barrier represents the single greatest challenge in treating diseases and other disorders within the brain. Diseases such as cancer are readily treated in many areas of the body, but drugs designed to treat cancer and other brain disorders simply cannot penetrate the blood- brain barrier. The ability to more effectively permeate the blood-brain barrier opens the door for the creation of new drugs designed to treat a wide variety of neurological diseases and disorders. Additionally, Transcendoffersthe potential to take existing clinically approved drugs that are near their end of patent life and extend them.

biOasis Discovers the Keys to Transcend to Advance its Program for the Delivery of Therapeutics Across the Blood-Brain Barrier

This Represents A Major Finding For the Company, Its Partners, Potential Partners and Shareholders

APRIL 24th, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSXV:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, has identified a new family of peptides that conserve the brain shuttling properties of Transcend. Transcend is biOasis’ proprietary vector which has the function of shuttling molecules across the blood-brain barrier. In side-by-side comparisons, these new peptide vectors are more efficient than the native, full- size Transcend molecule at delivering cargo to the brain.

This new family of peptides is able to shuttle a variety of therapeutic and biologics into the brain and their transport is not limited by the size of the transported therapeutic or its composition. This family, the second generation of Transcend, offers multiple advantages compared to Transcend. For example, the costs of production are extremely low as the peptides can be easily synthesized and a wide variety of peptide-cargo conjugates with different applications to a range of diseases can be produced simply and predictably. The peptide vectors are particularly well-suited to coupling to small molecule chemotherapeutics and other drugs. Thus development of new drugs using these new shuttle vectors can be accomplished more quickly and at much lower costs. This new family of novel chemical entities will provide a strong patent position for the company and its current and future partners.

Professor Wilfred Jefferies, biOasis’ founding scientist states, “After several years of innovation based on Transcend, our team has identified a new class of small carriers that can shuttle drugs across the blood-brain barrier allowing them to enter and distribute in the brain. In preclinical animal models the peptide vector-conjugates have shown remarkable efficacy. The discovery and translation of these newcarrier entities into novel therapeutics provides a glimpse into the future treatment of Neurological Disorders.”

About Transcend

Transcend offers the creation of a new class of drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of brain metastatic cancer and other brain disorders, such as neurodegeneration and metabolic disease. The blood-brain barrier represents the single greatest challenge in treating diseases and other disorders within the brain. Diseases such as cancer are readily treated in many areas of the body, but drugs designed to treat cancer simply cannot penetrate the blood- brain barrier.

Over the past five years, biOasis has developed a unique and novel blood-brain barrier vector called Transcend. Trials in animal models have shown that Transcend can deliver Herceptin®, a chemotherapeutic used to treat HER2-positive breast cancer, in sufficient quantity to the brain to significantly reduce the number of HER2-positive metastatic brain tumors. Further, after only four treatments, the remaining tumor masses were reduced in size by an average of 58%.

Also in animal models, the company has demonstrated that the Transcend vector could deliver a 4-to-8- fold increase of a variety of different therapeutic biologics across the blood-brain-tumor barrier versus the compounds on their own.

The ability to more effectively permeate both the blood-brain and the blood-tumor barrier opens the door for the creation of new drugs designed to treat a wide variety of neurological diseases and disorders. Additionally, Transcend offers the potential to take existing clinically approved drugs that are near their end of patent life and extend them.

biOasis Receives Patent Allowances for Lysosomal Storage Disease Therapeutic in Europe and Canada

Key Patent Allowances Represent Major Step Toward International Exclusivity for its LSD- Therapeutic in the $2 Billion LSD Market

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, MARCH 27, 2014. biOasis Technologies Inc. (TSXV: BTI; OTCBB: BIOAF), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, has received notices of allowance from the European and Canadian Patent offices for its patent application titled, “Use of P97 as an Enzyme Delivery System for the Delivery of Therapeutic Lysosomal Enzymes”.

The claims of the patent cover methods of using biOasis’ brain penetrating drug delivery vector, Transcend, coupled with a lysosomal storage disease enzyme for the treatment of lysosomal storage diseases (LSD). Specifically, the Transcend-coupled enzymes claimed in the patent allowance include those that are used clinically as enzyme replacement therapies to treat lysosomal storage diseases, such as Hunter Syndrome, Hurler syndrome and others.

“These patent allowances in Canada and Europe complement our existing issued LSD-related U.S. patent and mark another major step towards international exclusivity in the rare disease market,” said Rob Hutchison CEO. “We believe it helps validates our Transcend vector technology for treating LSD and particularly its special ability to deliver therapeutic compounds across the blood-brain barrier.”

biOasis’ corresponding LSD therapeutic patent issued in the United States on October 1, 2013 as US 8,546,319.

A patent allowance represents the official communications from the responsible patent authorities that an application will be issued upon final review and payment of the issuance fee.

About Lysosomal Storage Diseases

Lysosomal storage diseases are inherited metabolic disorders caused by a deficiency in lysosomal enzymes, of which approximately 50 have been described to date. These diseases usually affect children, many of whom die within several years of birth and some following years of dealing with symptoms of the disease that may include developmental delay, movement disorders, seizures, dementia, deafness and blindness. The most effective therapeutic strategy used is replacement of the missing enzyme. However, no currently approved therapeutic enzyme is able to effectively treat the effects of these diseases on the central nervous system. Despite the limitations of existing products, market revenues have exceeded $2 billion for each of the past three years.

biOasis Enters into a License Agreement with MedImmune for Second Generation Versions of biOasis’s Transcend

MARCH 17th, 2014 – BIOASIS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (OTCQX:BIOAF; TSXV:BTI), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, has signed an evaluation agreement with MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca.

Under the terms of the agreement, MedImmune will evaluate the therapeutic effect of its pre- clinical assets with next-generation versions of biOasis’s Transcend brain delivery platform. Efficient transport of drugs targeted at the central nervous system is significantly hampered by the blood-brain barrier; biOasis’s Transcend platform, with its ability to shuttle compounds across this barrier, may hold a solution to this problem.

“Our working relationship with MedImmune began in November 2012. In our collaboration, we demonstrated transport of MedImmune’s antibodies into the brain using our first-generation Transcend vector,” said Dr. Reinhard Gabathuler, Chief Scientist at biOasis. “In addition, we introduced our second-generation Transcend vector into this collaboration and other programs we have underway, where we have observed equivalent or increased antibody transport into the brain. We feel that this next generation of Transcend will have specific advantages in transporting certain biologics into the brain.”

“MedImmune is pleased to be entering into this new agreement with biOasis,” said Dr. Carl Webster, Associate Director, Antibody Discovery and Protein Engineering, MedImmune. “Our recently completed initial collaboration was very positive and led us to decide to undertake this second project to investigate the therapeutic effect and utility of biOasis’s technology.”

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Study Demonstrates biOasis Technologies’ Conjugate of Metastatic Cancer Drug, Herceptin, Penetrates Blood-tumor Barrier 10 Times Greater than Herceptin Alone

Vancouver, British Columbia, November 12, 2013 – biOasis Technologies Inc. (TSXV: BTI) (OTCBB: BIOAF), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company focused on overcoming the limitations of therapeutic drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, reported that new research conducted under its BT2111 (Herceptin®) program shows that BT2111-a conjugate of the metastatic cancer drug, Herceptin® not only crosses the blood-brain barrier, but also penetrates the blood-tumor barrier up to 10 times better than Herceptin alone.

BT2111 was developed by biOasis’s drug delivery platform, Transcend, which offers the creation of a new class of drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of metastatic cancer, as well as other brain diseases, like neurodegeneration and metabolic disease.

“Through image analysis and quantitative autoradiography in this animal study, we’ve now demonstrated that BT2111 distributed evenly in healthy sections of the brain, surrounded the metastatic brain cancer, and was present at significantly greater levels within the tumors compared to equal to or lower dose equivalence of Herceptin alone,” said Rob Hutchison, CEO of biOasis Technologies. “This observation corroborates the therapeutic responses seen in our prior animal models.”

“Treating cancer is extremely challenging as it is, but with brain tumors we have the additional hurdles of the blood-brain and blood-tumor barriers,” continued Hutchison. “Unfortunately, metastatic forms of brain cancer are even more problematic. MedlinePlus has reported that for many people with metastatic brain tumors the cancer is not curable. It will eventually spread to other areas of the body, with death often occurring within two years. This grim statistic has been a major compelling factor for us initiating the BT2111 program.”

“Understanding the mechanisms of actions of BT2111 is pivotal in the development of new therapeutic options for the treatment of HER2-positive metastatic brain cancer and other forms of metastatic brain cancers,” added Hutchison. “We are continuing our BT2111 program at a number of locations.”

In the treatment of brain tumors, drug delivery is complicated by the presence of the blood- brain barrier (BBB). The variability of the BBB and heterogeneity in permeability of the blood- tumour barrier (BTB) depends on tumor type, size, location, and prior treatments. There is complexity in the tumor microvessel populations (the brain-tumour barrier) that feed the growing metastatic cancer cells in the brain. The BTB remains a significant impediment to the use of standard chemotherapeutic delivery and efficacy in brain metastases of breast cancer. Recent research with anti-angiogenic treatment demonstrated that glioblastomas can continue to grow and even increase tissue invasion without the need for a second wave of angiogenesis. These findings indicate that primary brain tumors proliferate behind an intact BBB and that this barricade has to be crossed by any drug aimed to affect tumor growth.

biOasis Technologies Inc. Announces Notice of Allowance for Key Lysosomal Storage Disease Patent From the US Patent and Trademark Office

Vancouver, British Columbia, August 7, 2013. biOasis Technologies Inc., today announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its patent application titled “Use of P97 as an Enzyme Delivery System for the Delivery of Therapeutic Lysosomal Enzymes”, US Patent Application Number 12/729,792. The Notice of Allowance is the USPTO’s official communication that the Company’s application has successfully completed examination and that a patent will be issued upon final review and payment of the issue fee. The addition of this new patent to biOasis’ growing intellectual property portfolio will be another key value component of biOasis drug development efforts focused on developing valuable therapies to address important unmet medical needs.

The allowed claims of this patent application cover methods of using the Company’s Transcend brain penetrating drug delivery vector coupled to a lysosomal storage disease enzyme for the treatment of lysosomal storage diseases. Specifically, the enzymes claimed in the allowed patent application include those that are used clinically as enzyme replacement therapies to treat lysosomal storage diseases such as Hunter Syndrome, Hurler syndrome and others.

ABOUT LYSOSOMAL STORAGE DISEASES

Lysosomal storage diseases are inherited metabolic disorders caused by a deficiency in lysosomal enzymes, of which approximately fifty have been described to date. These diseases usually affect children, many of whom die within several years of birth and some following years of dealing with symptoms of the disease that may include developmental delay, movement disorders, seizures, dementia, deafness and blindness. The most effective therapeutic strategy is for replacement of the missing enzyme. However, no currently approved therapeutic enzyme is able to effectively treat the effects of these diseases on the central nervous system. Despite the limitations of existing products, market revenues have exceeded $2 billion for each of the past three years.

For immediate release TSX.V: BTI

CEO Letter to Shareholders

Vancouver, B.C. June 18, 2013 biOasis Technologies Inc., (BTI.V) an industry-leading provider of technology to potentially deal with the unmet medical need of shuttling therapeutic compounds across the Blood-Brain Barrier, with its’ Transcend technology, issued the following letter:

Dear fellow biOasis Shareholders:

The past 12 months have been marked by a number of significant accomplishments. I would like to highlight a few of those, review our core Transcend technology, and the opportunities before us.

biOasis is actively engaged in the development of a proprietary vector (Transcend) for the transport of therapeutic agents across the blood brain barrier (“BBB”).

The BBB is a very specialized barrier system of endothelial cells that regulates molecules accessing the brain. The BBB provides an insulated environment for stable function of the cells that make up the brain. As such, this barrier prevents approximately 98% of small molecule drugs and almost 100% of larger biologic drugs (antibodies, enzymes, etc.) from entering the brain in levels that would be useful therapeutically. By linking therapeutic agents to Transcend, biOasis is developing new classes of brain penetrating drugs and offering pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to greatly expand the commercial potential of a range of their key therapeutics.

We have been working on the biOasis technology for many years. Dr. Wilf Jefferies and his team of scientists, some of who are now working at biOasis, created what we are now branding as Transcendsm. The history of how the technology came to exist and how it works is a fascinating story. It is well told in “The Transcend Story” which you can find at http://bioasis.ca/programs.htm

After several years of externally vetting the technology with quality independent third parties, such as; National Research Council of Canada, BC Cancer Research Centre, St. Paul’s Hospital iCapture, Fleet Bioprocessing, London, England, Southern Research Institute, BRI Pharmaceuticals, and Texas Technical University Department of Pharmacy, in 2012 we began taking serious steps required to advance our technology towards commercial development.

During this vetting period, we expanded our patent portfolio covering the intellectual property underlying Transcend and continue to actively pursue additional patents for our overall technology. We now have over 30 patents and patent applications.

We entered into four important strategic collaborations with world-leading Pharmaceutical companies that wanted to “get their hands on Transcend” to see if it could be used with their target therapeutic compounds. These are:

1) Shire HGT
2) AbbVie
3) MedImmune
4) UCB Pharmaceuticals

For a company at the stage of biOasis’s to engage these world-class companies in such short order was a major milestone.

These events fit perfectly into the overall business strategy for our company, which can be summarized as follows:

Obtain independent 3rd party validation of Transcend

Expand and protect the Intellectual Property portfolio

Advance the development of a small number of programs internally and for our own account – the ones that are relatively low cost, have the potential to achieve major milestones in the short to mid term and have large market potential

Collaborate with reputable Pharmaceutical companies that are interested in the potential of Transcend – creating numerous shots on goal – leading us ultimately to commercial transactions with numerous strong partners or licensees.

We cannot expect our technology to work with every potential partner’s therapeutic target, so our goal is to bring a number of collaborators to the table. The interest we are getting from within the industry remains very positive.

In dealing with the current collaborations underway, I wish I could share the details; however, we are bound by confidentiality agreements to protect both our collaboration partners and us. To preserve scientific rigor in some cases we are “blinded” to the nature of our partner’s therapeutic agent so we will not know the outcome of the project until everything is complete. What I can tell you is that all of our collaborations are progressing and the results we’ve obtained to date have met our expectations. As well, our science and business teams at biOasis hold regular meetings with collaboration partners to discuss the progress of the research and exchange ideas. Each of our current collaboration partners are large organizations, expending significant capital and internal resources to assess our Technology for their needs. To us this highlights the potential value Transcend may have to these organizations.

As part of our evaluation of the potential of the Transcend technology, we ran an internal selection process to look at existing therapeutic compounds that where known not to cross the blood-brain barrier on their own. If we could demonstrate that our technology could get any one of these candidates across the BBB this would address a very large unmet medical need and therefore potentially be of interest to the owners of those compounds.

Once identified, we prioritized the list based on market size, cost to develop, likelihood of short to mid term milestone achievement and overall risk. This enabled us to target the companies we chose to collaborate with on our Transcend technology and to the collaborations listed above. In addition it allowed us to decide which programs we would advance further internally and for our own account.

The main program we are pursuing internally is called BT2111; where we have linked Transcend with trastuzumab (HerceptinTM)*. The results on this program to date have been very encouraging. The current market for Herceptin is greater than 5.9 billion dollars annually.

*HerceptinTM is a registered trademark of Roche/Genentech Highlights of the BT2111 Studies:

The BC Cancer Research Centre showed in a human HER2+ breast carcinoma model, that BT2111 had an increased cancer killing effect over Herceptin on its own. BT2111 under their test, killed more cancer cells outside of the blood-brain barrier than the drug itself. This was a surprising and very positive development.

Texas Technical University, after a great deal of testing, came out with, in our opinion, a remarkable set of results.

It is worth some background about this study to help put it in context;

There were three groups of subject animals used; a control group that received normal saline, a group that was dosed with Herceptin alone, and a group that received BT2111 – all dosed intravenously.

After a lot of prep work, all the animals were injected into the left ventricle of their heart with a “human” HER2+ cancer cell line. Twenty-one days later all the animals had on average approximated 90 brain tumors, and the therapeutic injections began.

Each animal received two injections per week between day 21 thru day 35, meaning they received only 4 injections each. At day 35 all the animals where euthanized and the brains where then sectioned and sliced. The slices where then prepared and analyzed under a microscope.

In a matter of two weeks with 4 injections, they found that the BT2111 group had 68% fewer tumors than both the two other groups.

In addition, the tumors that remained were 58% smaller in size versus the other two groups.

The work on BT2111 at Texas Tech continues with a number of further tests required to complete our pre-clinical testing of BT2111.

This program has identified two benefits for biOasis;

1) It is a program that biOasis itself could advance further on its own and without a partner (as the costs of doing so are manageable) or license it off to a partner potentially as soon as the next set of tests are completed, and

2) Therapeutic antibodies are the number one drug targets for many Pharmaceutical companies. Due to the large size of these compounds delivery throughout the body becomes a major issue and in the brain it is the major issue. Our work on BT2111 showed the industry that Transcend was not only able to deliver a therapeutic antibody, but do so in sufficient quantity to have a therapeutic effect.

Many of you have asked me about our Cognitest program – our test to measure elevated levels of p97 in blood as a potential diagnostic utility for Alzheimer’s. For now we’ve put it on the shelf and stopped expending corporate resources on it. We are focusing on Transcend where we see the best opportunity to create value for our shareholders. However, work continues at UBC where fresh human samples are being analyzed. This work is likely to continue for several months to come. The exact time frame for these results is tough to determine, but as soon as we have a statistically significant number of samples we will re-assess the commercial viability of this program.

Notwithstanding all of this activity and progress, we are spending only approximately $165,000 per month, a remarkably low burn for such technical advancement and our current cash position is approximately $3M.

Over the next year we will focus on a number of exciting activities, including near term objectives; the completion of the current collaborations and to complete certain BT2111 studies underway, and mid to longer term objectives to continue to seek and bring on new collaboration opportunities, advance our BT2111 program as rapidly as our resources allow and bring new internal programs that we’ve been working on to the forefront.

We feel biOasis is well positioned to move forward. We believe we have strong intellectual property underpinning Transcend, excellent strategic collaborators focused on large market opportunities, an exciting internal pre-clinical development program and a strong team of scientists and managers at biOasis.

We have an exciting year ahead and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Sincerely,

Rob Hutchison

biOasis’s Update on the BT2111-Herceptin® Program

Vancouver, B.C. April 9, 2013 – biOasis Technologies Inc. (TSX:V.BTI) announced today an update on the advancement of its anti-cancer product candidate BT2111. BT2111 is a brain- penetrating conjugate of trastuzumab (Herceptin®) and our Transcend vector designed to treat brain metatastsis of HER2+ breast cancer. Based on the exceptional data announced on February 7th of this year, which show both a remarkable reduction on brain tumors as well as tumor size, the company along with its expert industry advisors has now developed the road map to take this program to the next stage of preclinical development.

“Through late 2011 and through 2012 the BT2111 program has delivered tremendous results for biOasis,” says Rob Hutchison, CEO. “The news out of Texas Technical University announced on February 7th exceeded our expectations going into the program. Based on these animal efficacy studies we were then in a position to plan the balance of the pre-clinical pathway. There are a number of key studies that we will undertake as soon as possible to further evaluate and characterize BT2111 in order to position the program for out licensing to a pharmaceutical partner or for further internal pre-clinical development. This work will include additional efficacy, pharmacokinetic and safety sudies. The next efficacy study is planned and can commence shortly and we expect to see results from this work by mid to late summer.

ABOUT BT2111 – BT2111 is a conjugate between biOasis’ Transcend brain delivery vector and trastuzumab (trade name of Herceptin®), a humanized monoclonal antibody used clinically in the treatment of HER2+ breast cancer. It is reported that up to 30% of HER2+ breast cancer patients develop brain metastasis for which therapeutic options are limited. Because of its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, biOasis is researching the potential of BT2111 for treatment of HER2+ metastatic breast cancer in the brain.

biOasis Announces Positive Anti-Tumour Efficacy Data

biOasis Transcend-Herceptin® Conjugate (BT2111) Significantly Reduces the Number and Size of Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer Tumors in the Brain

Vancouver, British Columbia, February 7, 2013. biOasis Technologies Inc. announced today that its Transcend-Herceptin® Conjugate (BT2111) product candidate (a proprietary conjugate of Roche’s anti-cancer antibody trastuzumab (Herceptin®) and Transcend, biOasis brain delivery vector) reduced the number of metastatic human HER2+ breast cancer tumors in the brains of test animals by 68% when compared to untreated control animals. The tumors that remained after treatment were 57% smaller than those in the untreated control animals. In contrast, Herceptin alone had no effect on reducing the number of tumors and was associated with only a slight (15%) reduction in tumor size when compared to untreated control animals. These results provide clear evidence of the potential of the biOasis Transcend-Herceptin® Conjugate (BT2111) for treating brain metastasis.

The results reported here are from studies performed at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy under the direction of Dr. Paul Lockman — a recognized expert on drug transport across the blood-brain barrier and on metastatic brain tumors. The study was intended to assess the effect of BT2111 and Herceptin® alone in animals that were inoculated with a human “brain-seeking” breast cancer cell line that overexpresses HER2. Within 21 days the cells migrate to the brain and establish clinically relevant tumors. Animals were then treated twice per week with Herceptin® alone, or the BT2111 conjugate or saline (untreated control) to day 35. Following treatment the number and size of the metastatic tumors were then determined. At day 35, the average number of tumors in the brains of untreated control animals was 85. Herceptin® treatment showed no statistically significant reduction in this number. In contrast, the animals treated with BT2111 had on average 28 tumors, a highly statistically significant reduction over both Herceptin®-treated and untreated controls. Furthermore, BT2111 resulted in a 57% reduction in the size of the tumors that remained after treatment when compared to both Herceptin®-treated and untreated controls. This improvement observed in the BT2111 treatment group was also highly statistically significant compared to Herceptin® treatment where the average tumor size was slightly reduced (15%) when compared to untreated controls.

“The treatment model that Dr. Lockman and his team have developed at Texas Tech is at the leading edge of research for assessing drug therapies for metastatic brain cancer. The highly statistically significant reductions in the number and size of HER2+ metastatic breast cancer tumors due to BT2111 treatment that biOasis is reporting today forms part of a massive and rigorous effort to assess the potential of Transcend Conjugates to traverse the blood-brain barrier and treat diseases of the brain,” said Dr. Wilf Jefferies, inventor of the Transend technology and Founding Scientist of biOasis.

“These studies build on the positive results that we have reported previously”, added Rob Hutchison, biOasis CEO. “In September 2012 we announced that BT2111 and Herceptin® were equally effective in arresting the growth of breast cancer tumors th
