VetCell Therapeutics USA Opens Enrollment for DentaHeal Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis Clinical Trial

Collaborating Veterinary Clinical Sites Will Provide DentaHeal Investigational Stem Cell Product to Enrolled Patients at No Cost


VetCell Therapeutics USA™, a clinical-stage, pet-focused cell therapy provider, announced today that it has entered the enrollment phase of its DentaHeal™ clinical trial. The company also announced the first four clinical sites authorized to qualify and treat FCGS patients with its DentaHeal investigational stem cell therapy. VetCell Therapeutics USA will cover the cost of its DentaHeal product for all enrolled patients.


This news builds upon last month’s announcement of VetCell Therapeutics USA beginning a multi-centered, country-wide clinical trial to evaluate the safety, efficacy and potency of DentaHeal for the control of clinical signs related to feline chronic gingivostomatitis (FCGS).


“With the expert counsel from our partners at UC Davis, we have entered the patient enrollment stage of our DentaHeal clinical trial and are pleased to announce our first collaborating clinics,” said Dr. Chad Maki, DVM, chief veterinary medical officer at VetCell Therapeutics USA. “FCGS is an awful, painful, and deadly disease that today has no cure. We firmly believe that DentaHeal can correct the cause of FCGS, allowing cats to lead happy and healthy lives and are incredibly thankful for all of the clinics reaching out to join our fight against this disease.”


VetCell Therapeutics USA plans to cover several major metropolitan areas of the United States, with clinical sites being added to the trial regularly. The first DentaHeal clinical sites to sign up include:

DentaHeal is an allogeneic, adipose-derived, mesenchymal stem cell treatment for FCGS. With this clinical trial, any cat with FCGS that has not responded to standard treatment options can be enrolled into this clinical trial.


According to published data, approximately 30 percent of FCGS patients do not respond to standard treatments and require life-long pain medication, antibiotics and immunosuppressive drugs. Sadly, the cats that do not improve, even with implementation of improved dental hygiene, medication, and oral surgery, are often euthanized.


For pet owners with cats diagnosed with FCGS, please read our blog post titled, ‘What To Do if My Cat Has Been Diagnosed with FCGS,’ to learn more about FCGS, stem cells and VetCell Therapeutics USA’s DentaHeal clinical trial.


Veterinarians with patients suffering from FCGS whom are interested in enrolling their patient in the DentaHeal clinical trial are encouraged to contact the above four mentioned clinics for consultation.

Clarion’s New Line of Marine Speakers (CMS) Combines Rich Sound with Stylish Grille Designs and Optional RGB Illumination


Clarion Marine, a leader in marine-grade audio solutions, today announced the introduction of its all-new CMS line of marine coaxial speakers. Including three variations of a 6.5-inch full-range speaker: classic grille and sport grille with or without RGB lighting built-in. The new CMS speaker line extends the brand’s commitment to producing affordable, high quality and great sounding products to new levels.

Specifically engineered, marine grade polymers and finishes are employed for the chassis and grilles in the CMS lineup. A close attention to critical connection by points by the design team ensures protection from corrosion. All models are Salt and Sun Certified; built to exceed industry standards for salt-fog/UV exposure (ASTM B117/D4329) and shock/vibration resistance, ensuring excellent long-term durability.

SolidRun and Virtium Lead the Charge Towards a 5G Connected Future

SolidRun and Virtium Lead the Charge Towards a 5G Connected Future

Collaboration Expedites the Development of 5G Network and Edge IoT Solutions by Offering Computing Platforms, Memory and SSD Storage That Have Been Prequalified for Compatibility


The much-anticipated move to 5G communications has begun and now most industries are working towards building the infrastructure to support the vast coverage and incredible speed that comes with it. SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance edge computing solutions, and Virtium®, a leading provider of industrial-grade solid-state drive (SSD) and memory solutions, have announced a collaboration to provide the industry with essential building blocks for creating new technologies for the network edge that fully benefit from 5G.


The two companies are working together to leverage SolidRun’s CEx7 16-core LX2160A Computer-on-Module and ClearFog CX LX2K network computing platform, and Virtium’s StorFly® M.2 SATA industrial-grade SSDs, DDR4 memory modules and StorKit™ SSD software, to usher in the next generation of edge-computing solutions that emphasize speed, connectivity, efficiency and data security across 5G networks.


“We see many industries looking to the near-zero latency of 5G as being the key to unlocking the true potential of Industrial IoT, but to benefit from these speeds, having the right hardware is critical,” said Atai Ziv, CEO at SolidRun. “We saw an opportunity to create a variety of solutions ranging from computer on modules and carrier boards to rack-mount Arm servers that will expedite the proliferation of 5G across the entire ecosystem. Additionally, we’re teaming up with key industry players, like Virtium, to ensure that our systems are paired with storage solutions that won’t bottleneck data processing speeds or compromise data security.”


“5G’s unprecedented bandwidth will dramatically increase the demand for industrial-grade solid-state storage throughout the network infrastructure – especially at the edge, where low latency, high endurance and rock-solid security are imperative,” said Virtium Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing Jacques Issa. “Collaborating with SolidRun as we have to develop complete solutions – edge-computing platforms with already-qualified SSDs, integrated software and memory – will help meet that demand and unleash the power and promise of 5G at the network edge.”


Poised to deliver as much as a 2,000-percent increase in network speed and support for up to 10-times more device connections than 4G, all while reducing total network power consumption, 5G is expected to bring the Internet of Things (IoT) to new levels and dramatically boost the role data plays in society. According to a recent Ericsson Mobility Report, 190 million 5G subscriptions are expected by the end of 2020 and forecasted to grow to 2.8 billion in 2025, representing approximately 30 percent of total mobile subscriptions.


The speed and widespread coverage promised by 5G is poised to revolutionize several industries, including manufacturing, logistics, farming/agriculture, communications, industrial automation, healthcare, and energy. It will lay the framework for truly smart cities and usher in the age of autonomous transportation.


To design the systems needed to proliferate 5G across the entire ecosystem, hardware solutions that create, route or consume data at 5G speeds must be optimized for reliable transfer of data at incredibly fast rates and be protected against data loss from power failure, but must also offer a new level of security. Beyond how data is handled, these systems must also operate at low power and fit within form factor constraints all while still maintaining exceptional resilience to harsh environmental factors like heat, shock and vibration. These are value propositions that both SolidRun and Virtium are each well known for. Together, the two companies are able to support a wide range of edge computing applications for indoor and outdoor deployment.
