French Company Biosantech to Release Phase II Results on Its HIV Vaccine

Skokie, Illinois (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

What: News conference to announce results of Phase II study on a new therapeutic HIV vaccine

When: June 8th, 1:25 p.m. to 1:50 p.m.

Where: International Conference on Retroviruses and Novel Drugs–DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – North Shore Conference Center9599 Skokie Boulevard, Skokie–Room 2B2

Who: Biotsantech is developing a new therapeutic vaccine against AIDS currently in clinical phase IIa in France. The TAT OYI Vaccine candidate is a breakthrough innovation able to induce a cross-protective immunity and replication of several HIV subtypes.

Dr Donatien Mavougou, who is in charge of the IMMUNOREX HIV program, will be a speaker at the conference prior to the news conference. The title of his presentation: IMMUNOREXTM as vaccine approach by its ability to inhibit HIV-1 and co-infecting pathogens: the role of its lipid carrier. The news conference will be held after that presentation and Dr Mavoungou will talk about his collaboration with Biosantech.

Also attending the news conference from Biosantech are: CEO Mme Corinne Treger; Dr. Sonia Escaich; Virologist Dr. Jean de Mareuil; and Mr Michel Correa Director of the IIDSRSI Institute France.


Despite the success of antiretroviral tritherapy ART developed in the 1990s, there are still 35 million people living with HIV in the world and only 37 of those have access to current therapies. The development of an effective vaccine is hampered by the highly mutagenic nature of HIV. An effective therapeutic vaccine against several HIV subtypes could represent a major advance for a cost effective treatment of the HIV infection.

The HIV-Oyi variant was isolated in 1998 in monkeys. The virus strain called Oyi had a mutated TAT protein defective for transactivation. Several studies have shown that the presence of the Anti Tat immune response is correlated to long-term survival in humans.

Phase I results were completed in December 2014 and showed no adverse events or sign of toxicity.

About Biostantech

Biostantech is a private company founded by M. Roger Treger in 2011, and is based on the licensing of patientsand technology from CNRS. For more information, visit http://www.biosantech.org/

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2014

If you thought a cruise around the world couldnt get any more relaxing, think again. PURE Marine Solutions, provider of PURE allergy travel accommodations on the water, has partnered with Crystal Cruises to help vacation passengers sleep better and breathe easier at sea.

Crystal Cruises has long been recognized as a leader in ultra-luxe ocean travel, having earned more Worlds Best awards than any other cruise line, resort or hotel in history. The company has once again set a new standard for high-end cruise vacationsthis time in the health and wellness categorywith 48 allergy-friendly staterooms onboard their ship, Crystal Symphony.

We continue to invest in creating a contemporary and sumptuous environment that meets the travelers desire, said Edie Rodriguez, President and COO of Crystal Cruises. PURE Staterooms provide travelers with the finest health-conscious accommodations in the luxurious setting theyve come to expect on Crystal Cruises ships.

PURE Rooms are treated according to a patented 7-step process that eliminates and protects against 98-100% of viruses, bacteria and other particles that are harmful to people with asthma and allergies. By creating an environment that is virtually free of allergens and irritants, PURE accommodations are more comfortable for allergy-sufferers and also provide a more relaxing and rejuvenating guest experience for all travelers.

The new PURE Staterooms were unveiled on September 27th after a 2-week, $ 20 million dry dock redesign. PURE Marine Solutions, the sister company that manages all PURE projects on the water, also previously installed 70 of these allergy-friendly staterooms aboard Crystal Serenity, the larger vessel in Crystal Cruises fleet.

Antony Papageorgiou is President of PURE Marine Solutions. He explained that allergy travel accommodations are especially important for international travel, where vacationers may encounter unfamiliar plant species and wildlife as well as poor air quality in certain port cities.

No matter how contaminated the air might be in a particular port-of-call, the PURE Stateroom always delivers an indoor environment with optimal living conditions, said Papageorgiou. We found a fantastic partner in Crystal Cruises, which continues to seek out the latest and best amenities for their discerning guests.

PURE Staterooms have already received overwhelmingly positive feedback on both Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity. As demand for allergy travel accommodations continues to rise, PURE Solutions and Crystal Cruises provide the relaxation and recuperation that travelers expect from a vacation.

Costa Rica Online Travel Company Now Accepting Bitcoin

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 13, 2014

There is no doubt the U.S. consumer has been re-educated over and over on how to purchase travel since the inception of the Internet. Once an arena of traditional Travel Agents and Online Booking companies such as Expedia and Orbitz, the landscape of online travel was soon to be hit by a new wave that not many saw coming. It was 2010 when LivingSocial lead the change by incorporating travel services as part of their discount deals offerings. Months later Groupon would follow their steps, and in time discount travel became one more commodity for those venturing into the online travel market.

In March 2011 the then director of LatinExplore, Monica McIntyre, became one of the first merchants to launch Costa Rica vacations as a destination through one of these discount deal platforms. Characterized by its avant-garde outlook, the company which thrives on innovation was happy to take the risk into the unknown. It all paid off, the bet returned 10 fold and many others rushed to follow suit. That was the last time she remembers feeling a rush of adrenaline generated by the risk of technological innovation in an otherwise traditional travel agent job.

But innovators do not rest, and the thirst for risk is not easily quenched.

Six months ago, Ms. McIntyre launched CostaRicaTravelMarket.com offering U.S. travelers with a Costa Rica focused marketplace for hotel and travel packages. And what is new about this you may ask? Innovation this time was to take a sharper turn: clients can pay for their Costa Rica vacation with Bitcoin.

Ms. McIntyre explains that Bitcoin payments are easy and help avoid expensive transaction fees which eventually will be translated to lower pricing for the traveler. She uses Coinbase as the companys virtual wallet and believes the merchant tools they offer allow businesses like hers to easily hedge for the risk of the volatility involving the peer-to-peer digital currency market.

CostaRicaTravelMarket.com might be the first to accept Bitcoin to pay for travel to Costa Rica, but like in the case of deal platforms she believes her first movers advantage will quickly disappear once the adoption of digital currency enters the comfort zone it inevitably will.

Costa Rica Travel Market LLC is an online travel operator with offices in the Denver, CO and San Jose, COSTA RICA. Costa Rica Marketplace delivers an online platform for Hotels to publish Deals & Offers to the US market. For more information contact: http://www.CostaRicaTravelMarket.com, or contact Monica McIntyre at 1.888.831-1811 or by email at info(at)costaricatravelmarket(dot)com.

While based in the U.S. headquarters located in Cleveland, Ohio, he spends much of the year working with customers and staff in China.

We are looking forward to embarking on this new beginning in support of our Chinese customers. Additionally, Shafer commented, The new, expanded Jergens facility in Shanghai allows us to attract additional U.S.-based small manufacturing partners and provides them with a low-cost investment for entry into the Chinese market from our wholly-owned subsidiary platform.

SoCal based HOA Cleaning Company, Takes Bold Action After Winning Integration Award

(PRWEB) May 06, 2014

Personal Touch Cleaning & Maintenance, Inc. has announced today that it is launching a company-wide rebranding campaign to better distinguish their services in the janitorial industry.

A new logo, new website and award-winning quality-of-service delivery will accompany our transition from Personal Touch Cleaning & Maintenance to PTC.

The rebranding efforts will include the launch of PTC social media profiles, a redesign of internal forms, service brochures, website-capability redesign, and other marketing efforts to broadcast the new company image. PTC currently provides professional janitorial and maintenance services to more than 900 homeowner associations (delivered with a personal touch!) spanning across Southern California.

Winning the Integration Award from Action Property Management this year at their annual 2014 Action Icon Awards event, opened my eyes to the huge value that property-management companies place on growing a company that integrates the way we do business with their needs, said Patrick OBrien, owner of PTC.

The new brand identity visually represents the feeling of a new day, or sunrise, as opposed to the retired logo that appears as a sunset. Part of the new day at PTC is new technological advancement within our current operations. Our new website allows PTCs property-management clients the opportunity to submit an RFP (request for proposal) online via Internet or smartphone and more. PTCs website will now enable a property manager to request onsite meetings, to submit a service report card, and includes a form for property managers to inquire about any service needed but not listed on the PTC services page. Enabling these capabilities inside a website for smartphones helps our clients do business faster and make fewer phone calls.

Patrick OBrien stated, In the past 29 years, we have built a company this size largely by referral! We simply deliver our janitorial services in a remarkably valuable style, and at this stage in my business I am taking specific steps to retool how we do things in-house, so we can reach out to our client managers and provide them better business services in the moment they need them while enabling PTC to take care of twice as many communities as today.

The company is immediately embracing the new branding that displays the abbreviated company name, PTC. Using the firms initials to identify the company will help the marketplace better orient our company to our designated market, disassociating PTC from the numerous other businesses touting personal touch in their marketing.

PTCs new website can be found at http://www.PTCHOA.com. The decision to change the web address occurred to clearly communicate the focus of the PTC service suite. PTC is making a sizable investment in their rebranding effort to bring mental clarity to the connection of its new brand identity, and to the scope and sophistication of PTCs competencies for HOAs as their business grows. Strengthening the integration and collaboration between their clients and the communities they touch, graduates PTCs mission statement to an action statement.

Mission Statement:

We are dedicated to providing exceptional janitorial services, and to enhance the lives of the families and communities we serve. By combining the efficiencies of new green technologies with the Personal Touch of highly trained and motivated employees, we are able to deliver maintenance solutions and cleaning services that exceed our customers expectations. Our promise is to lead by example, treat others with compassion and respect, and to promote continuous learning for all within our organization.

About PTC Personal Touch Cleaning & Maintenance, Inc.

PTC Personal Touch Cleaning & Maintenance, Inc. formerly http://www.4mypersonaltouch.com, now found via http://www.PTCHOA.com, is a privately held corporation with its corporate headquarters located in Irvine, CA, and regional branch offices located in the city of Commerce to serve Los Angeles County, in San Diego for the greater San Diego area, and Murrieta serving the Inland Empire region.

World Ventures Launch Takes Off With Meta-Search Technology and Jefferson Santos Leading 1/2 of Entire Company Volume

Aubrey, TX (PRWEB) January 3, 2006

Jefferson Santos helped launched the Meta-Search Technology and the World Ventures business plan at the prestigious Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 10th, 2005.

World Ventures is the perfect combination of a home based business and corporate travel identity, lending itself as serious competition to such giants as Expedia, Travelocity and Hotwire. With people wanting the best prices and the internet bringing a consumer discounts like never before, World Ventures has taken its Meta Search Technology into the forefront with a strong take off.

How does it work? Entering a search and a power-driven MetaSearch Engine that scrapes the lowest rates for air, hotel, car, cruise and vacation packages scans the internet in stealth mode the best prices on any travel imaginable is now easier than ever. Searching over 200 major travel websites all in one click, this now includes cruise and family packages along with additional perks that no one has ever offered before.

Jefferson Santos, 30, Builds Online Travel Referral Agents Nationally From the Comfort of his home Generating $ 22,300 in his first month with WorldVenutures

A leader is measured clearly by what they produce and the results they can see in their efforts in those who work with them- facts do tell, but results are the strength of a leader:

To be daily producing work, in action and on the playing field — shows a leader that understands that nothing apart from action shows the reality of a leaders ability.

An offensive mindset is something that Santos teaches, lives and models showing that that PRESENT action produces future success. To not rely on past success, to rely on past results, to tell the same old story when not in action is sadly a common trait of deception in this industry. Jeffersons team spends as much time on the courts as they do in training sessions and the statistics prove it to be so.

Meta Search Technology and a young brilliant entrepreneur show that the internet and the world can hold adventure beyond belief.

*Since Pre-launch (Nov 1st, 2005)

Aptech Helps Strand Development Company Grow to 56 Properties, Increase Profitability

(PRWEB) February 17, 2014

Strand Development prides itself on providing its owners with effective and accurate financial reporting on a timely basis – there is no room for error, no room for tardiness, says John Johnson, Strands CFO. We know that our continued relationship is contingent on delivering solid bottom line results. This is our top priority.” With 56 properties and multiple ownership entities, Strand relies on its corporate business intelligence system to automate the complex data gathering and analysis process that drives property performance reporting.

We work for many ownership groups. Some are small private companies, others are publicly traded. Most have different reporting requirements, so we need to provide property data in different ways, Johnson said. When we had fewer properties, the job of collecting daily hotel metrics and creating custom performance reports was time consuming, but possible. When we reached 20 properties, we realized we needed to automate the process.

Execuvue allowed us to grow.

In 2004, Strand implemented the IBM Cognos-based Execuvue
