Recommendations for Purchasing Medication Over the Internet

Make sure the site requires a prescription and has a pharmacist available for questions. Don’t provide personal information such as credit card numbers unless you are sure the site will protect them.

Buying prescription medicine from fraudulent online pharmacies can be dangerous, or even deadly. At best, counterfeit medicines are fakes of approved drugs and should be considered unsafe and ineffective. These medicines may be less effective or have unexpected side effects.

In addition to health risks, most fraudulent online pharmacies may put your personal and financial information at risk. Some intentionally misuse the information you provide. These sites may infect your computer with viruses, and they may sell your information to other illegal websites and Internet scams.

Avoid online pharmacies that:

Allow you to buy drugs without a prescription or by completing an online questionnaire
Offer discounts or cheap prices that seem too good to be true
Send unsolicited email or other spam offering cheap medicine
Ship prescription drugs worldwide
State that the drugs will be shipped from a foreign country
Are not licensed by a state board of pharmacy in the United States (or equivalent state health authority)

No, it may not be obvious that an online pharmacy is fake. Many illegal online pharmacies use fake “storefronts” to make you think they are real pharmacies. Fraudulent sellers run fake online pharmacy scams to exploit American consumers by pretending to be legitimate pharmacies offering prescription medicines for sale. However, the products they provide may be fake, expired and otherwise unsafe. In fact, many online pharmacy scams are so sophisticated that even health care professionals can have a hard time detecting illegal sites at first glance

We recommend , for Canada, to check Canadian Pharmacy for safe online medication shopping.

The Internet provides consumers with instant access to information and services, including online pharmacies for prescription medicines. Health insurance plans are encouraging home delivery of maintenance medications and use of pharmacy services online. As the cost of prescription medicine continues to increase, consumers may look for cost savings from online pharmacies to afford their medicines. In addition, many consumers value the convenience and privacy of purchasing their medicines online. For those consumers that may be considering purchasing from online sources that are not associated with health insurance plans or local pharmacy, these consumers need to know the risks of buying from fraudulent online pharmacies.

Mill Road Capital has a long history of successfully investing in emerging consumer brands throughout Canada and the United States, and this expertise will help support the GreenSpace team as they navigate the US natural food market and US capital markets.

The Share Consideration will be subject to lock-up and escrow pursuant to which approximately 45% of the Share Consideration shall be locked up for 12 months from the closing date, 5% of the Share Consideration shall be in escrow for 13 months from the closing date and the remaining 50% shall be locked-up for 18 months from the closing date, subject to certain exemptions.

Select highlights of the Acquisition include the following:

Go Veggie adds a profitable pre-existing US platform that will enable GreenSpace to launch its most innovative and unique brands into the US;

The acquisition is expected to add significant gross margin dollars to GreenSpace and improve the overall gross margin profile, as well as add incremental adjusted EBITDA in the short term, with more significant growth in adjusted EBITDA over the long term.

The addition of Go Veggie adds a profitable pre-existing US platform that will enable us to launch our most innovative and unique brands into the US under the expert leadership of one of the most respected people in the US natural food industry, Rick Antonelli, CEO of Go Veggie” comments Matthew von Teichman, CEO of Greenspace, “This is truly a transformative acquisition for us. We will continue to develop their Canadian sales strategy through the leveraging of our current platform and strategically initiate our US development by leveraging their platform. It’s a win-win and the ideal way for us to get going in the US market”

Rick Antonelli, CEO of Galaxy comments, “We’ve been watching GreenSpace for years and have admired the stable of brands they’ve been able to put together in such a short time. We feel that Go Veggie is a perfect addition to that roster of strong brands and with the potential synergies of our team selling their products, and their team selling our products, there’s a significant long term upside for both. I can’t wait to start presenting GreenSpace’s unique and innovative products to the US market and Go Veggie’s existing retail partners.”

Hong Kong National Investment and Harvard University Stem Cell Institute starting a strong partnership

Hong Kong National Investment and Harvard University Stem Cell Institute have a strong cooperation.

Mr. Brock Reeve, CEO of Harvard Stem Cell Research Institute, is the Chief Investment Officer of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medisun at National Investment and Medici Medical Group.

2015-05-11 China Securities Journal

On May 8, 2015, Hong Kong Medisun Regerative Medical Center and National Investment (01227.HK) announced the appointment of Mr. Brock Reeve as the chief stem cell and regenerative medicine investment officer of the two companies.

Mr. Brock Reeve is currently the Executive Director of the Harvard University Stem Cell Institute and has graduated from Yale University and Harvard Business School. Mr. Reeve is solely responsible for the strategy and operations of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, whose overall goal is to use stem cell biology as a tool and treatment to study and treat major degenerative diseases.

As the Chief Investor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine of Medisun Medical Center, Mr. Brock Reeve will organize and lead a professional investment team to actively select the latest regenerative medicine technologies in overseas markets such as Europe, the United States, and Japan and evaluate their investment value. They will also focus on and invest in the world’s leading stem cell regenerative medicine technology, and actively participate in clinical trials and product commercialization of stem cell technology invested by Medisun Medical Center in Asia.

Medisun Medical Center is the world’s most authoritative investment organization in stem cell and regenerative medicine

As the world’s most authoritative investment organization for stem cells and regenerative medicine, Medisun Medical Center has invested in stem cell treatment technologies including heart, tumor, liver, kidney, AIDS and other diseases, fully demonstrating its investment vision and courage. After working with the Mayo Medical Group in the United States, the Medisun once again joined forces with the Harvard University Stem Cell Institute.

Mr. Danny Wong is both the Chairman of the Medisun Medical Group and National Investment (01227.HK). He has devoted himself to research and investment in the field of stem cells for the past five years. The Medisun currently has more than 300 scientists , medical consultants and investment experts from all over the world. The technologies invested by the group are distributed in Europe, the United States, Japan, Hong Kong and other places, and clinical trials are carried out simultaneously.

China’s first participation in international multi-center global synchronized clinical trials

Medisun Medical Group is committed to bringing the world’s leading stem cell and regenerative medicine technologies to China. The investment in the C-cure stem cell therapy for ischemic heart failure technology, which was invented by Mayo Medical Group, has been clinically tested in Europe and the United States. It will carry out clinical trials in China’s well-known cardiovascular hospitals such as Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Fuwai Cardiovascular Hospital and Shanghai Oriental Hospital with the support of international multi-center policy, giving Chinese hospitals the opportunity to participate in the world’s most advanced stem cell technology clinic. The Medisun also actively promote the commercialization of technology worldwide in the future. Before C-Cure’s great technology and revolutionary products for heart disease were officially launched, Medisun has launched a series of cell regeneration factor products to treat a number of diseases, and the product has entered the market.

Liang Zhen ying visits Harvard University Stem Cell Research Institute and Mr. Brock Reeve to discuss the promotion of stem cell and the development of regenerative medicine industry

Under the general environment of Hong Kong’s adjustment of the whole industry, one of the important measures is to develop the stem cell and regenerative medicine industries. Looking at the huge investment in the stem cell and regeneration field of the Medisun Medical Group, it is revealed that it will inevitably set off a disruptive business model in the market.

The Hong Kong government attaches great importance to the development of stem cells. Following the cooperation with the Caroline Medical School in Sweden, Liang Zhen ying visited the Harvard University Stem Cell Research Institute on May 5 and exchanged views with its Executive Director Brock Reeve to promote the development of the stem cell industry in Hong Kong. This will undoubtedly inject a strong shot into the cooperation between Harvard University and Hong Kong in the field of regenerative medicine. It will promote the promotion of Harvard stem cells in regenerative medicine research and technology in Hong Kong and Asia.

It can be seen that Medisun Medical Group has appointed Mr. Brock Reeve take the helm of the stem cell and regenerative medicine to investment. National Investment (01227.HK), which holds a 30% stake in Medisun Medical Group, is investing in regenerative medicine and the field of stem cells. Mr. Brock Reeve will lead the Medisun Medical Group to become a professional stem cell investment team with global leadership.

The value of the stem cell and regenerative medicine industry under the capital market in China and Hong Kong is immeasurable.

With the upcoming clinical management of stem cells, the development of China’s stem cell and regenerative medicine industry will be unstoppable. Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and the upcoming Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect have apparently injected huge sums of money into Hong Kong stocks. The stocks of companies related to the stem cell industry have risen very well, but they are far from satisfactory and far from the technology held by Medisun Medical Center. National Investment (01227.HK), as a shareholder of Medisun Medical Group, is full of confidence in the development of the Group.

Medisun Investment Holdings’ Cardio Biotech plans to enter the US capital market.

Medisun Investment Holdings’ C-cure Stem Cell Therapy for Ischemic Heart Failure has exceeded the number of patients enrolled by the European Food and Drug Administration (EMA) in the Phase III clinical trial in Europe and has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Enter the third phase of clinical. Cardio, the investment holding company of Medisun, also successfully obtained a new round of financing of 32 million euros in February this year. Its financing quota was oversubscribed and snapped up by European and American institutional investors. Cardio is planning to be listed on the NASDAQ in the United States from the end of May to the beginning of June this year (listed in Belgium and France in 2013), and the large-scale financing plan of Cardio further indicates that the spring of stem cells has really come.

After many years of favor and investment in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine, and the huge capital investment plan, the Medisun’ next step will be the focus of the market. The capital market’s confidence in its shareholder, National Investment (01227.HK), is already evident in the expectation of its future development.According to analysts, Medisun has planned to launch an overall listing financing plan in Hong Kong in the near future. We believe that Medisun, as a recognized leader in the global stem cell and regenerative medicine field, will surely launch an incredible wave of development in this field.

Heart failure patients helped to regain health by Stem Cell Therapy

The International Forum on Heart Failure and Stem Cell Therapies Focus on C-Cure Technology and Launch Ceremony of Phase III Multisite Clinical Trial in China was held jointly by six organizations including Experts Committee of China Council for Medicine International Promotion, National Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Industrial Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance, etc on August 25th in Shanghai. The reporter was informed from the forum that the C-Cure technology for the treatment of heart failure through stem cells will make the heart failure patients who are lack of effective treatment regain health and rebirth.

Junbo Ge, Academician from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Deputy President of Tongji University, has introduced the current situation of heart failure worldwide on the forum, that is, the number of patients worldwide reaches 117 million, among which there are 29.971 million patients in China, accounting for 25.6% of the total. At present, the traditional therapy of end-stage heart failure requires heart transplantation, which not only arouses problems such as too less donors, long waiting time, strong rejection reaction, etc, but also brings huge economic burden to the family or even the society. Academician Ge also says that the scientists are still making unremitting efforts to promote the application of stem cell technology on Chinese people suitably and safely. He also hopes that more administrative departments will support this technology and he believes the future will definitely be the biomedical era.

Dr Andre Terzic from the Center for Regenerative Medicine of the US Mayo Clinic and the experts from the Cardiovascular Center of Belgian Aalst Hospital have introduced the cardiac repair revolution of stem cell technology——C-cure technology and C-CathEZ Catheter on the forum. The C-Cure technology involves aspiration of the patient’s bone marrow and isolation of the mesenchymal stem cell fraction. A unique and proprietary “cardiopoietic cocktail” of proteins is used to differentiate the patient’s mesenchymal stem cells into cardiac progenitor cells, or so called “cardiopoietic cells”. The heart specific stem cells are expanded in vitro and then implanted into the diseased and damaged area of the heart using the C-Cathez delivery device. These implanted cardiac stem cells regenerate and heal the heart that has been injured by myocardial infarction, or heart attack.

C-CathEZ is the world’s most advanced proprietary catheter used for delivery of stem cells to the heart. It is capable of accurately delivering diagnostic and therapeutic agents to the damaged myocardium through a minimally invasive procedure. C-CathEZ navigates to the left ventricle through the aortic arch, and its curved and porous needle stays anchored to the ventricular wall, moving in sync with the ventricular wall motion once it reached the myocardium. The porous needle can also be repositioned for injections of cells into different areas. C-CathEZ enables the injection and distribution of stem cells evenly into the damaged myocardium, resulting in a higher portion of retention of cells. The C-Cure technology and the catheter C-CathEZ have been nominated as finalists for two 2014 European Mediscience Awards, the “Breakthrough Award” and the “Best Technology Award”.

Medisun has established collaborations with the Mayo Clinic, a renowned medical group in the United States, and the two have co-invested in Cardio3 BioSciences, the owner of C-Cure technology and catheter C-CathEZ. At present, C-Cure has been authorized to conduct the Phase III clinical trial in the US and European Union, and the product could potentially be launched globally in 2016. Moreover, the technology of catheter C-CathEZ has obtained authentication and licensing from the EU in April, 2012.

In order to make the stem cell therapy be available to more Chinese heart failure patients, Mesisun Holdings Limited will establish 8 to 10 international multisite clinical bases in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou to carry out the Phase III clinical trial of C-Cure technology in Mainland China. The launch ceremony of developing Phase III clinical trial by the cooperation of Cardio3 and Shanghai East Hospital has been held on the forum. Before that, Medisun Holdings Limited and Beijing Anzhen Hospital has formally launched the cooperation of Phase III clinical trial of C-Cure technology.

Zhongmin Liu, President of the East Hospital of Tongji University says, “The clinical application of stem cell is the dream of a number of clinical doctors and the experts from the stem cell field. With the gradual improvement of the isolation, culture and expansion technology of stem cells as well as the interventional methods for heart failure patients, the clinical application is promising. The East Hospital is looking for a biological cell therapy with more effectiveness and better life quality for the patients, which is able to avoid and delay the heart transplantation, that is, the application of stem cells in the heart failure treatment. Before the stem cell therapy, the heart failure patients rely on the heart transplantation ultimately. However, the time to wait for the heart donor is long, and the patient has to be hospitalized repeatedly, which costs money and makes the patient painful. With this cell technology, combining with technology of minimally invasive catheter, the result of HF treatment may be identified whenever or wherever without spending too much money. It can avoid the patients to be hospitalized repeatedly and can also reduce expenditure, which brings better life for the patients. This cell therapy brings effects that the traditional drug treatment can’t give not only for HF patients, but also for patients with diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis, etc in the future. Therefore, the cell treatment including stem cell treatment will be the pillar industry which will be focused on to develop not only in China, but also in developed countries such as the United States, and it will certainly lead the new revolution in medical industry.

In addition, the Stem Cell Clinical Trial Management Approach will be issued in the second half of this year. We can believe that the support of relevant departments in China will certainly promote the regenerative medicine of stem cell to develop rapidly and normatively for the benefit of Chinese people.
