Kabbalah Gets Connected

Considered by many as something deeply mysterious; and by some as maybe even malignant, the misunderstood semitic spiritual practice of Kabbalah is far from some misguided occult. An archaic and austere study for spiritual self-cultivation, Kabbalah teachings align seamlessly with those of other sincere paths to “enlightenment” or “fulfillment. Kabbalah exerts enormous emphasis on eliminating …

Clay B. Siegall Joins Mirna Therapeutics to Help Tackle Cancer

Austin, TX-based Mirna Therapeutics became more connected and invigorated with the appointment of biopharmaceutical titan Clay B. Siegall to their Board of Directors. Siegall is well known in the industry for innovative work regarding cancer research and treatment. Mirna will certainly benefit from his expertise in the field while developing their extensive line of cancer treatment products. The name Mirna is derived from the term microRNA which is used to describe genetic control switches in the body that could one day lead to a cure for cancer. MicroRNA is one of the most progressive areas of cancer treatment with the potential to eliminate the disease that has plagued mankind for millennia. With Clay Siegall’s leadership and connections, Mirna is positioned to be on the cutting edge of cancer therapy. They already have a number of products in the pipeline with more to come in the future. Siegall is best known for his leadership role at Seattle Genetics, which he co-founded back in 1998. The Seattle-based company has already created a diverse line of antibody-based treatments previously unavailable to cancer patients. Siegall also serves on the Board of Directors for Alder BioPharmaceuticals, creating another important link between biotech companies on the front lines of cancer treatment. Siegall’s previous accomplishments include a Ph.D. in genetics from George Washington University and a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Maryland. He also contributed to the National Cancer Institute and the Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute, along with a handful of other biotech companies. On top of his epic resume, he has also been published over 70 times and holds 15 patents.

Restraining Order Against Laidlaw

Laidlaw and Company in addition to its principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern were issued a temporary restraining order to prevent the dissemination of false and misleading proxy materials regarding the interests of Remalda Therapeutics, Inc. This order was to expire on December 22, 2015. In an effort to protect the Laidlaw stockholders’ interests, the U.S. Federal Court in the District of Nevada issued the order, stalling its takeover attempts. Laidlaw is an English investment brokerage firm with a history of violations against U.S. financial regulations. As such there have been numerous customer complaints, monetary penalties and regulatory sanctions lodged against them over the years. Because Laidlaw once served as the brokerage firm for Remalda, it gained access to information it is now distorting in an effort to sabotage Remalda Therapeutics. Remalda is a publicly traded clinical-stage company that develops therapies for the treatment of chronic pain. Their product portfolio includes the drug BuTab and Remalda would prefer to focus on its line of drugs rather than fighting over the control of the company. That is the main reason, they’ve asked the courts to restrict Laidlaw’s take over efforts. That plus fearing the dissemination of false information could only hurt the shareholder’s interests. Laidlaw and its principals have been ordered to retract false and misleading information. The courts also demanded that the untrue proxy materials stop being issued. Each move is an attempt to restore Remalda to its original condition in the public eye. Remalda currently has four lead drugs: d-Methadone, topical mepivacaine, oral buprenorphine and LevoCap ER. The company’s development of these drugs is guided by internationally recognized scientific expertise of its research and development team. As of December, 2015 it will also present its stockholders meeting. This shortly after the restraining order expires, giving Laidlaw little opportunity to disrupt the company further.
