There are days when you wake up and you’re just not feeling it. When I say feeling “it,” I’m referring to a general sense of malaise. I’ve often found that these feelings occur on Mondays regardless of what one has done over the weekend prior. If you should ever find yourself feeling like this, there are several ways to handle this. First and foremost, assess where your physical well-being is at. When was the last time you had a really great night of sleep? Are you feeling well rested? Next, consider your diet over the last few days. Have you eaten a few meals or foods that aren’t conducive to a healthy lifestyle. It’s totally okay if you have, this could be why you’re feeling the way you do. Once these have been taken into account, its important to know what environmental conditions can also affect one’s general attitude. In California, there have been more winds and blooming flowers, creating issues for those with allergies.
Know your body and what it needs, here’s what you missed in the news yesterday.
Fire Is Dangerous
On Monday, Parisians across France were devastated to discover that Notre Dame, the world-famous cathedral had caught fire. According to reports, the fires laid waste to the building’s spire and then spread to one of its rectangular towers. For those unfamiliar with Notre Dame, it shares the name of Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel and eventual Disney film, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
“A special mission has been launched to try to save all works of art that can be saved. We must see if the vault, which protects the cathedral, will be touched. The sacred objects are preserved in the sacristy; normally there is no risk of things being burned.”
-Emmanuel Grégoire, first deputy to the mayor of Paris
Mueller Report Is In-Bound, I Repeat
The American people, as well as countless members of Congress, have waited for quite some time for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation findings to be shared with the public. Over the last year, Mueller has conducted countless interviews and gathered information to find out whether President Donald Trump and members of his administration colluded with Russian entities to help Trump secure the election back in 2016.
According to several media outlets, Attorney General William Barr will release the Mueller report to Congress on Thursday morning. To be clear, the released report will have grand jury testimonies, classified information, information from ongoing investigations, and other info redacted before it is released to the public.
“Now that the Special Counsel has concluded his investigation and submitted his report to Attorney General Barr, the Department and the Bureau must keep the Committee “fully and currently informed” of that information and the Special Counsel’s findings. We look forward to the department and the bureau’s continued cooperation with the committee on this matter of grave national importance.”
–Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)
3 Penny Stocks Looking To Change The Biotech Industry
The world of biotech investing can be tricky. That’s particularly true when it comes to small-cap stocks in the industry. These companies often have terrific science, but no profits and little revenue; if any at all. But biotech stocks can offer true potential for investors who know what to look for.
Perhaps the best strategy for gaining exposure to this space is to look at early-stage, small-cap biotechs. By doing so, you put yourself at the front-line for cutting edge, experimental companies that could one day hit it big. Given this, here are 3 small-cap biotechs working to evolve in the biotech industry.
GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP)
One company making groundbreaking developments in the biotechnology field is GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP). GT Biopharma Inc. is an immune-oncology biotech company determined to create new treatments for cancer. In order to do this, the company leverages its proprietary TriKE technology to develop its pipeline. As of now, GT Biopharma has 6 treatment plans undergoing the clinical trial process.
So, what exactly is this TriKE technology platform? TriKE is actually an acronym for tri-specific killer engagers that are made to target NK’s or natural killer and tumor cells. Once they target NK cells, it binds to the CD16 receptor which makes a longer and stronger response compared to current treatment methods.
One use of TriKE has been to develop a way to target the HIV-Env protein. The design to do this is known as HIV-TriKE. As a matter of fact, the company recently announced data that showed the effectiveness of HIV-TriKE. It was shown that it enhanced NK cell cytokine production and effectively killed infected targets with HIV-Env.
“We are pleased to see how the TriKE™ technology is able to be extended to the treatment of infectious disease and is able to kill HIV in the reservoir.” Mr. Cataldo further stated, “We believe the HIV-TriKE™ will become part of a scalable and curative therapeutic strategy,” expressed Anthony Cataldo, CEO and Chairman of GE Biopharma.
Conatus Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CNAT)
This next biotechnology company is known as Conatus Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CNAT). This company’s focus is different compared to GT Biopharma. It aims to treat chronic diseases that have a large unmet need. Its lead product candidate CTS-2090, inhibits IL-1β which treats inflammatory diseases.
In terms of news releases, the company has been slightly lackluster over the last two months. However, in early August Conatus released its Q2 financials which showed some profitability promise in its income statement.
Revenues increased and expenses decreased in Q2 2019 compared to Q2 2018 which significantly reduced the company’s net loss by $3.8 million. One potential hindrance factor in the financials could be Conatus’ consistently declining free cash flow.
Nuvectra Corporation (NVTR)
To top things off, we have a neurostimulation company known as Nuvectra Corporation (NVTR). The company has a commercial product called Algovita Spinal Cord Stimulation which treats chronic pain of the trunk and limbs. In addition to this, Nuvectra is awaiting FDA pre-market approval for its Virtis Sacral Neuromodulation which treats chronic urinary retention and overstive bladders.
Compared to Conatus, Nuvectra has produced recent news that investors can sink their teeth into. First off, the company appointed Jennifer Kosharek as CFO around a month ago. This is a strong appointment thanks to her 15+ years of accounting experience and other leadership positions with Nuvectra.
Furthermore, the company recently submitted its supplementary chemical composition and biocompatibility data to the FDA to support Virtis’ pre-market approval.
Pursuant to an agreement between Midam Ventures LLC and GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP), Midam has been paid $100,000 for a period from October 1, 2019 to November 15, 2019. We may buy or sell additional shares of GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP) in the open market at any time, including before, during or after the Website and Information, to provide public dissemination of favorable Information about GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP).

Are These Biotech Names On Your October Watch List?
Over the past two decades, the biotech sector has been one of the best sectors to watch. If experts are to be believed, then it is likely to continue to be a hot sector for the foreseeable future. However, biotech stocks require research and that can help when it comes to making a list of biotech stocks.
Once that is done, the investor needs to track the companies closely. Then it’s easier to decide upon the best course of action. Here is a look at three biotechnology penny stocks this month.
Biotech Stocks To Watch: PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB)
If you’re looking at PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) at this exact moment, you’re seeing it before the company begins clinical trials and just as it’s preparing to complete its Investigational New Drug Application for the FDA. Whether you’re new to biotech stocks or a seasoned vet, you should understand how important milestones like this are for a company.
David A. Judd, a cellular biologist and a member of PharmaCyte’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board, was recently interviewed. Right now, PharmaCyte Biotech (PMCB) is putting together the necessary material for its planned clinical trial for inoperable pancreatic cancer, one of the most deadly forms of cancer today. Though there has been a targeted focus on Pancreatic cancer with PharmaCyte, its diabetes application may also have promise according to Judd.
“I think diabetes is where this type of technology really lends itself to the application. The key is to develop the right type of cell line to treat Type 1 and insulin-dependent Type 2 diabetes. There are several cell lines being explored by PharmaCyte simultaneously to do this. Selecting the right cell line to become our leading product candidate to treat diabetic patients in need of insulin is key to the success of PharmaCyte’s Diabetes Program.”
Over the last week, shares of PMCB stock have jumped from $0.0319 to highs of $0.0367 on Friday.
Biotech Stocks To Watch: Hepion Pharmaceuticals (HEPA)
The next biotech stock to watch is Hepion Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:HEPA). The company is involved in manufacturing medicines meant for liver conditions emanating from non-alcoholic reasons. The company announced that its research article has been published by the highly influential peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.
The paper in question is titled “A Pan-Cyclophilin Inhibitor, CRV431, Decreases Fibrosis and Tumor Development in Chronic Liver Disease Models.” The study shows that Hepion’s product CRV431 could well be a solution for treating chronic diseases of the liver. The paper also stated that the medicine is suited to address a range of therapeutic needs.
Once the news broke, the company’s stock started soaring and soared over 43% at $3.58, well off the session high of $5.59.
Biotech Stocks To Watch: Protalix Biotherapeutics (PLX)
The other biotech stock that broke out more this week is Protalix Biotherapeutics Inc (NYSE:PLX). The company released data from the BRIDGE Phase 3 clinical study of its product PRX-102 and the revelations have proven to be highly encouraging. Out of a total of 22 patients who had been enrolled for the study, the data was gleaned from 16 of them.
The patients in question had been treated with PRX-102 for 12 months. The medicine is meant for treating Fabry disease and it has been revealed that there was an improvement in the function of kidneys in the patients. The stock soared by as much as 75% on Thursday and should definitely be on the watch lists of most investors.
