    MONTREAL, Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX-V: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF), a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma atomized metal powder, plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is pleased to announce today that, further to a Press Release dated October 25^th, 2018, the zinc paid-for-demonstration of DROSRITE™ system (the “System”) is now complete, and the results confirm PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ System’s commercial application to zinc dross. The Client is one of India’s biggest primary smelters and has an estimated need of upwards of ten (10) Systems within its umbrella of companies.The tests have been completed and demonstrate that DROSRITE™ is successful in recovering 98% of metal from zinc dross. This is comparable to that from the application of DROSRITE™ to aluminum dross. The analyses were conducted independently by the Client. The results indicate that the quality of the zinc is excellent, and the contaminants in the residue, such as chlorides, are significantly reduced. In addition, the System is easier to operate with zinc, when compared to aluminum, due to the lower melting point of zinc.

    “We are buoyed by these results,” said Mr. Alex Pascali, Business Development Manager of PyroGenesis. “DROSRITE™ is clearly attracting a lot of attention, specifically with respect to tolling. As has been mentioned, we are in several strategic discussions with smelters, and after our recent business development trip to Europe and Asia, this has accelerated. We must, at some point, consider offering only DROSRITE™ tolling services, given the recurring benefits of such a strategy.”

    “These zinc dross results, together with our recent success in the aluminum dross market, confirm that our proprietary DROSRITE™ System is a game changer,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “Not only have we proven the commercial application of PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ System to aluminum dross, but we have, today, demonstrated the same for zinc dross, which significantly increases the value of the Company’s DROSRITE™ System.”

    With the successful completion of this zinc demonstration, PyroGenesis can now target zinc smelters around the world. Of note, the price of zinc is approximately 33% higher than that of aluminum.

    PyroGenesis’ DROSRITE™ System is a salt-free, cost-effective, sustainable process for maximizing metal recovery from dross, a waste generated in the metallurgical industry. PyroGenesis’ patented process avoids costly loss of metal while reducing a smelter’s carbon footprint and energy consumption, providing an impressive return on investment. The System has been designed to process and recover valuable metal such as aluminum, zinc and copper from dross.

    Pioneer of Industrial Internet Cybersecurity Solutions Ready to Boost International Expansion

    NEW YORK and LYON, France, Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sentryo.net, a pioneer of Industrial Internet cybersecurity, which was named “Cool Vendor in Industrial IoT and OT Security, 2018” by Gartner, Inc. has raised €10M in Series A Financing. The round was raised in two stages with four new investors: Sopra Steria and BNP Paribas Développement in the first half of 2018 and Omnes and Alliance Entreprendre in November 2018. Investors from the first seed round: Breed Reply, ACE Management, and Kreaxi also participated in this series. To date, Sentryo has raised 13M€.Sentryo helps organizations embrace the promises of Industry 4.0 innovations by keeping their industrial operations safe from cyber attacks. Sentryo’s ICS CyberVision award winning platform gives control engineers comprehensive visibility on their industrial control systems, detects anomalies and accelerates response to cybersecurity incidents keeping them ahead of cyber threats.

    Operational Technology (OT) cybersecurity is a fast-growing market. Organizations are connecting their control systems to the world as they are leveraging digitalization to transform their industrial operations but they have not been designed to handle cyber attacks. As they are increasing their exposure to cyber risk, they must gain in-depth visibility on what’s going on, track anomalies to mitigate risks and detect critical events.

    Founded in 2014, Sentryo has already won a wide international portfolio of customers in critical markets such as Energy, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Transportation, Process Industries and Building Management. Its rapid growth is fuelled by its strategic partnerships with large cybersecurity service providers and major control engineering vendors. This new fund raising will permit Sentryo to accelerate its expansion in Europe and North America and boost its technology leadership.

    “We are proud to welcome new high-profile investors as well as to receive renewed trust from initial investors. We have put together a great team of experts and delivered technological products that our customers and partners love. Our investors have been convinced by our vision and our ability to execute,” said Thierry Rouquet, Sentryo’s Co-founder and President. “Customers rely on Sentryo to empower their control engineers to protect their industrial assets and work with IT managers to include OT in their cyber-security strategy.”

    “Corporations are facing a great challenge when trying to extend their cybersecurity best practices to their industrial infrastructures,” explains Arnaud Cailleau, Cybersecurity VP at Sopra Steria. “Technology designed to protect IT systems from cyber attacks cannot cope with the specificities of industrial systems. We also need security solutions that professionals can use in their process control and industrial maintenance workflows. By putting OT staff at the front line of defense and giving them the tools to collaborate with IT experts, Sentryo is making a huge contribution to the protection of our industries.”

    Zhang Ruimin lights the fire of management change BEIJING, Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A news report by China.org.cn on the speech of Zhang Ruimin, the Chairman of the Board and the CEO of the Haier Group at the Global Drucker Forum in Vienna:

    Zhang Ruimin, chairman of the Board and CEO of Haier Group, was the only Chinese entrepreneur invited to attend the Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna, Austria on Nov. 30, 2018. This is the 2nd time Zhang has been invited to the Drucker Forum, which management expert Charles Handy has referred to as "the birth place of business change."Zhang Ruimin, chairman of the Board and CEO of Haier Group, delivers a speech at the Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna on Nov. 30. [Photo courtesy of Haier]

    In his speech, titled "Rendanheyi – Maximizing Everyone's Value," Zhang explained how the Rendanheyi Model can disrupt traditional bureaucracy models by implementing an IOT mindset. This is achieved by making changes to people, organization systems and compensation mechanisms, and turning the organization into a Three-Selves organization. In this way, employees are inspired to be innovative and instilled with entrepreneur vitality, bringing about the alignment of employee value and user value. His speech also explained how Zhang Ruimin transformed Haier into an open entrepreneur ecosystem through the innovative Rendanheyi Model, and built a platform where every person has the opportunity to be an entrepreneur, making Peter Drucker's vision of "Every person is his own CEO" a reality.

    This year, the forum focuses on the theme of "Management, in People's Dimension" to explore whether leaders in the 21st century should be adept at understanding people-related management techniques just as they do with the latest scientific discoveries. These days, IOT is no longer just a topic of scientists and researchers, but is closely connected to everyone's work and life. Yet, in this trend, most enterprises focus more on technological reform and innovation with little regard for the value of people involved in this process.

    Zhang's speech triggered a spirited discussion among experts and entrepreneurs at the forum. Members of the board of directors from Germany's Bosch expressed admiration for the innovation and reform at Haier, commenting that "Haier sets up a model for us to learn." Julia Wang, dean of Drucker School of Management (Hong Kong), said she believes the Rendanheyi Model can be applied not only to business management, but also to other social organizations. Stuart Crainer, author of "The Management Century" and co-founder of Thinkers50, said the successful practices of the model are producing greater impacts on Europe and the world at large. 

    In his book "A Business Reformation: Lighting the Flame," Charles Handy pointed out that while the era calls for business reform, people need to reconsider the organization and figure out how to keep integrity of human value within corporations. He said, "This will be a reform, an unpopular reform." Then who will light the flame of this global reform?Zhang Ruimin, chairman of the Board and CEO of Haier Group, is the only Chinese entrepreneur invited to attend the Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna, Austria on Nov. 30. [Photo courtesy of Haier]

    As a master in integrating eastern and western management thinking, Zhang Ruimin proposed the Rendanheyi Model back in 2005, and started the great transformation of the company for the age of the internet. The rigid hierarchy in the organization was thoroughly destructed, and the company became a networked organization. On Haier's platform, a great number of microenterprises were created, which were self-employed, self-motivated and self-organized. So far, there are over 200 entrepreneur-microenterprises on Haier's platform, among which 23 have been evaluated at over 100 million yuan, and 33 have received financing. Haier's open entrepreneur platform Haichuanghui established 24 incubators in 9 countries, attracting over 3000 registered projects, including 300 incubator projects, with a total evaluation of over 30 billion yuan. 

    During his speech, Zhang Ruimin also announced plans for the Vanguard Company alongside world-renowned management expert Gary Hamel. As a witness to and supporter of Haier's reform, Gary Hamel co-authored "The End of Bureaucracy" with Michelle Zanini. The piece served as a cover article for the Harvard Business Review, a leading management publication, and prominently featured Haier's management reform as an example. This time, Gary Hamel will join Haier, the company that he believes to be "the best case study for busting bureaucracy," in launching the Vanguard Company forum, where case studies like Haier's will be researched and studied. The goal of this forum is to inspire great changes in management organization, speed up management innovation, and build an organizational form that fundamentally suits the future of humanity. 

    After listening to Zhang Ruimin's speech, the official social media of the European Institute of Business Administration (INSEAD) said that it believed the Rendanheyi Model to be a key management innovation of the 4th Industrial Revolution. The Executive Dean of Education at INSEAD pointed out that the Chinese management model would be studied by western countries as Japanese models had been before. This echoes Charles Handy's comments from earlier. In this way, the Vanguard Company helps serve as fuel for the fire of management change. 

    This year the forum was held at the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna. This 700-year-old palace was where Beethoven's Eighth Symphony was played for the first time, and today it is where the horn is sounded for the Global Management Enlightenment Movement.

    A US discount brokerage giant is partnering with Chinese technology company WeChat to court Asian investors· *TD Ameritrade on Monday launched a new chatbot for WeChat users who based in the US. *
    · *The WeChat chatbot, similar to those on Facebook Messenger and Twitter, offers investment information, ranging from global market updates to volume spikes. It does not allow trading over the platform. *
    · *The discount brokerage is trying to court more Asian investors. *

    --------------------

    Discount broker TD Ameritrade unveiled a chatbot for users of popular Chinese messaging app WeChat living in the US. It's the latest attempt by the discount brokerage to tap further into the massive user base of the largest social network in China.

    TD had rolled out an initial partnership with WeChat in August, but made the service accessible only to investors in  Hong Kong. The new launch allows the firm to offer the same services to WeChat users living in the US, a clientele it inherited from its $4 billion acquisition of Scottrade in 2017.

    “When we did our acquisition of Scottrade, as part of that acquisition, we on-boarded a very robust and engaged client book of Asia Pacific clients in the U.S.,” said Sunayna Tuteja, director of innovation and strategic partnership at TD Ameritrade. “They're very engaged on WeChat." 

    The firm’s WeChat chatbot, similar to those it built via Facebook Messenger and Twitter, provides users with investment information, including market updates, company news, trading quotes, or volume spikes, though users can't trade on the platform.

    The partnership with WeChat comes at a time when when TD Ameritrade is trying to grow its business in Asia. Earlier this year, TD Ameritrade opened a new office in Hong Kong and unveiled the “ThinkorSwim”platform to offer trading in stocks, options, and futures listed in the U.S. exchanges. In August, it rolled out an AI-powered chatbot for investors in Singapore, allowing them to trade via Facebook Messenger.

    TD is aiming to enter into the mainland China market next, said Tuteja. 

    “We just want to be very deliberate and purposeful, so we are taking at some time to really learn and understand how we would structure that entry,” she added.

    Founded by Tencent in 2011, WeChat is a fast-growing social and messaging platform in Asia. It dominates the Chinese market, but has also gained in popularity in other regions, like Southeast Asia, Europe, and the US. As of February, WeChat has hit 1 billion monthly active users across the globe, according to “Pony” Ma Huateng, Tencent's co-founder and chief executive officer.

    NOW WATCH: 7 places you can't find on Google Maps Reported by Business Insider 4 hours ago.

    European markets got off to a good start on Monday and sharply higher on Monday, following the global-relief in Asia rally after the U.S. and China trade negotiating teams had warm talks on Saturday night over dinner in Argentina's G20 summit where they manage to agree to take steps to ease trade tensions. We saw the Stoxx Europe 600 index jump 1.9% to 364.23, with the highest proportion of those gains coming from Germany where the DAX rallied over 2.6% to 11,547.07. The FTSE 100 index added up  2% to 7,116.97 while Frances CAC 40 index climbed close to 2% to 5,104.70. 

    Washington and Beijing have now agreed to postpone the proposed increases of further tariffs on China in a reciprocal deal where China have pledged to buy more U.S. products - This sent shares in trade-sensitive sectors, such as autos and resources stocks that saw the most significant gains, higher. The main benefactors early in the day were with Volkswagen AG rallying 4% and Rio Tinto PLC jumping nearly 5%. Oil majors were also contributing to European indexes as the price of crude oil rallied almost 5% in early European markets sending BP PLC 2% higher.

    However, during the day, we had a median reversion effect in the indexes as the hysteria died down somewhat leaving the provisional and come 'confirmed' closing levels as follows:

    · Stoxx Europe 600 index to close at 360.40
    · German DAX, +1.9% higher - 'Confirmed' 1.85% higher
    · France's CAC, +1.1% higher
    · UK's FTSE, +1.4% higher  - 'Confirmed' 1.18% higher

    And as for oil, WTI is up around 2.5% at $52.56 at the time of writing. 

    *DAX technical analyses:*

    From a technical perspective, the DAX remains bullish-neutral although that break above the 21-D SMA, in the absence of any further mean reversion to close the bullish gap, bulls can target the 50-D SMA and confluence of the 23.6% Fibo target at 11617. RSI was capped at 70 on the 4-hr time frame while daily turns higher. Should price close the gap, as is often the case, the 21-D SMA will need to give way at 11369 first. Deeper territory below 11207 as the recent lows would open up the 11007 level as the 19th Nov low. 10860 comes as the 2016 Aug-Nov level as the critical downside target.

    Support levels: 11238 11159  11111.

    Resistance levels: 11365 11413 11492

    *FTSE technical analyses:*

    From a technical perspective, the index has breached the 23.6% target at 7091 and pierced the 50-D SMA at 7127, scoring a high of 7146.93 - This leaves the price above the descending resistance line as the index moves sideways out of the channel formed between the September swing low and high building the starting points for descending support and resistance. Bulls can pursue the upside so long as the 21-D SMA that guards the gap holds; this is located at 7045 and price closes at 7062. The important next upside target is the 38.2% Fibo of 2018's range at 7244. 

    Support levels: 6962 6919 6879

    'Fortnite''s biggest competitor was just named Best Game of 2018 on Google Play· *"PUBG Mobile" has been named Google Play's Best Game of 2018 and Fan Favorite Game of 2018.*
    · *"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" is a battle-royale shooter and helped inspire "Fortnite: Battle Royale" and the Blackout mode in "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4."*
    · "PUBG Mobile" is free on Google Play, while the versions on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC are $29.99.

    Google Play has released its Best of 2018 list, and battle-royale shooter "PUBG Mobile" tops the list as both Best Game and Fan Favorite Game.

    As the name suggests, "PUBG Mobile" is the mobile version of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the PC game that's largely credited with inspiring the battle royale genre leading to "Fortnite: Battle Royale" and copycat game modes in "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" and "Battlefield V."

    Hundreds of millions of players around the world are playing battle royale games on video game consoles and smartphone alike. It helps that the two biggest games in the genre, "PUBG" and "Fortnite," are free on mobile devices. Research firm SensorTower reports that "PUBG Mobile" has been downloaded more than 240 million times and has earned more than $113 million through microtransactions.

    "PUBG Mobile" and the console and PC versions of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" have separate player bases, but the games function the same. "PUBG" throws 100 players onto an island with scattered resources. Once the game starts, they need to find weapons and items to defend themselves with as the safe areas of the island begin to shrink. The last player or team surviving at the end of the round is the winner. --------------------

    *Read more:* It looks like the smash-hit game that paved the way for 'Fortnite: Battle Royale' is finally coming to PlayStation 4

    --------------------

    While "Fortnite" is more popular than "PUBG" overall, the game is not downloadable in the Google Play Store — Android users must instead install the game directly from the Fornite website — clearing the way for "PUBG Mobile" to dominate on Android devices and Google Play download rankings. "Fortnite" is also unavailable in China, the world's largest video game market, due to the Chinese government's ongoing freeze on new game releases.

    Both the PC version of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and "PUBG Mobile" were published in China by Tencent prior to the government's call for increased video game regulation. The game has seen tens of millions of downloads in China but Tencent is still not allowed to monetize "PUBG Mobile" in China with in-game purchases.

    While "Fortnite" still reigns as the world's most popular game, the global reach of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" will help ensure that its around for years to come. The console version of "PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds" recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its launch on Xbox One, and will be released on PlayStation 4 on December 7th. The game's creators have also revealed plans for "PUBG" esports leagues in North America and Europe starting in 2019.

    Leaked documents reveal Tesla had an aggressive production ramp for its Model Y — but the company says that its plans have changed (TSLA) **

    · *Internal documents seen by Business Insider reveal that Tesla had plans to build its next new vehicle, the Model Y SUV crossover, at its Nevada Gigafactory and its yet-to-be-built factory in China. *
    · *According to the documents, which were sent before the company's earnings call in October, the company had planned to ramp both factory's Model Y production lines up to 7,000 and 5,000 cars, respectively, by early 2021.*
    · *The Model Y, which will be built on the Model 3 platform, was slated to have a third row of seats, an IP Riser, and a center consul riser, according to the documents. *
    · *A Tesla spokesperson told Business Insider that the timeline and information in the documents were "outdated," but did not specify any further.*

    Internal documents given to Tesla employees a few weeks before the company's October earnings release reveal the company had plans to manufacture its next car, the Model Y SUV, at a rapid speed.

    According to the document, Tesla planned a production ramp of 7,000 Model SUVs a week at its Gigafactory 1 in Nevada by December 20, 2020 and 5,000 Model Ys a week at its China Gigafactory by February 2021.

    Other details in the Model Y documents include: 

    · The company planned to have a pilot Model Y line built at Gigafactory 1 by June 1, 2020, with standard operating procedures in place by August 1, 2020. By September 1, 2020, the company aimed to ramp production up to 2,000 Model Ys a week at Gigafactory 1. 
    · The China Model Y pilot line was projected to be built by early October 2020 with the line ramping up to 2,000 Model Ys by November/December 2020.
    · The Model Y, like any crossover vehicle, is built on a car's platform. In this case, that car is the Model 3, so to build the Model Y Tesla is simply making some additions and changes to the Model 3 line.
    · The Model Y documents reviewed by Business Insider outline manufacturing/design changes or additions to the vehicle that will make it different than the Model 3. They include the addition of an IP Riser, a center console riser, and third row of seats.

    Business Insider sent an email to Tesla including these details as well as a series of questions about these projections and whether or not they may be used in a pitch to raise capital for the company.

    In response, a Tesla spokesperson said that the details in the documents were no longer accurate. 

    "The timelines and information shared here are outdated. When we have details to announce, we will certainly share them. In the meantime, we remain focused on Model 3, which we are excited to bring to Europe and China early next year," the spokesperson said.

    The company did not respond to follow-up questions asking to clarify when these dates were set as goals, or whether or not the general goal to manufacture the Model Y in 2020 — which CEO Elon Musk discussed on the company's third quarter conference call — remained.

    "It does seem like these timelines are quite aggressive based on what Tesla has achieved in the past," said Rebecca Lindland, an executive analyst at Kelly Blue Book. "There was a lot of fanfare when the company hit 5,000 Model 3s a week over the summer. With this schedule, they're looking at 7,000 Model Ys a week [at the Nevada factory] by 2020 and that just seems very high." 

    In the past, Tesla has struggled with launching new models as smoothly as traditional automakers. In an interview with Axios on HBO, CEO Elon Musk said that the ramp of the company's most recent model, the Model 3, took the company "single digit weeks" away from bankruptcy this year.

    "Essentially the company was bleeding money like crazy and if we didn't solve these problems in a very short period of time we would die," Musk said.

    It's not clear how the timeline might have changed. But auto industry experts told Business Insider that the original schedule may have presented its own particular set of challenges. For starters, new car launches often take three to five years to execute, not two. What's more, Tesla would have to grapple with building a new factory in China before manufacturing the car there.

    A former employee told Business Insider that these documents were given to engineers to signal the end of their work on the Model 3 line, and the beginning of their work on the Model Y.

    If you are a Tesla employee or customer who has a story to share about a car or experience with the company, give me a shout at llopez@businessinsider.com.

    ** A Tesla ramp (with Chinese characteristics) **

    The Model Y is being built largely based on plans for the Model 3. In the auto business, they call that putting "a top hat" on an existing model. That should make the process simpler than launching an entirely new vehicle.

    That said, industry experts told Business Insider that even with this simplification, Tesla is still likely to face challenges as it ramps up production of the new SUV. 

    Tesla still needs to build out space for the Model Y at its Nevada factory. It also still has yet to build, tool, and train the workers in its factory in China. Once that's done, they will still need to hire and train staff overseas.

    "China is notorious for turnover," Lindland said. "They're going to face higher levels of turnover than in the states and there are cultural differences to account for."

    One current Tesla employee, who asked for anonymity, said he was worried the company isn't learning from its previous mistakes. Instead, he said, the company is exporting them. 

    A former engineer who was familiar with the company's Model Y plans also said the company's expansion to China could present issues. 

    "It [the Model Y manufacturing plan] looks like copying and pasting what they've done at Fremont ... but now they're facing a new problem, working from China," one former Tesla engineer told Business Insider. 

    "I think that the main flaw is he [Elon Musk] thinks the system at Fremont can be replicated and that that replication is the best way to spend capital, which it's not. The system in Fremont could use some upgrading in terms of lessons learned ... What I could imply from looking at [these documents] is that they're not going to apply those lessons."

    As an example, the engineer pointed out that currently, Fremont's production line doesn't have buffer space for cars. So if something goes wrong at the end of the line, the entire line has to stop because there's no space to move any of the cars ahead. Based on these Model Y plans, the engineer does not think Tesla is going to fix that issue.

    -  New data on APL-2 demonstrate improvements in hematological parameters in cold agglutinin disease (CAD) and warm antibody autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA)-  CAD patients treated with APL-2 had an improvement in hemoglobin within weeks and at day 56 had a normalization of mean hemoglobin, reticulocytes, bilirubin and lactate dehydrogenase

    -  wAIHA patients on APL-2 with C3 loading had a meaningful improvement in hemoglobin at day 56 along with a normalization of reticulocytes and lactate dehydogenase

    CRESTWOOD, Ky. and WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apellis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq:APLS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel therapeutic compounds to treat disease through the inhibition of the complement system, today announced updated data from its Phase 2 study of APL-2 in patients with autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), including cold agglutinin disease (CAD) and warm antibody autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA). Data from the PLAUDIT trial will be presented in a poster session today at the 60^th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, held in San Diego, California.

    In the ongoing PLAUDIT study, 12 CAD patients have been enrolled on APL-2 subcutaneous treatment, of which 5 patients have been treated for at least 56 days. Nine patients with wAIHA were enrolled, seven of which were Direct Antiglobulin Test (DAT) C3+ (C3+ wAIHA). Five of these C3+ wAIHA patients have been on APL-2 for at least 56 days. 

    “CAD and wAIHA are now the third and fourth indications, along with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and geographic atrophy (GA), with high unmet medical need where APL-2 has demonstrated proof of concept,” said Dr. Cedric Francois, MD, PhD, Apellis co-founder and CEO. “These additional data confirm that the unique way APL-2 targets both C3 as well as C5 via the C5 convertase supports its potential across multiple complement-mediated diseases.  We are pleased that APL-2 demonstrates a clinically meaningful benefit in these two challenging diseases that each lack an FDA-approved therapy.”

    Data will be presented by Dr. Morie A. Gertz, M.D., MACP, Chair Emeritus Department of Medicine of the Department of Hematology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Professor Gertz is the primary investigator of the PLAUDIT study.

    “APL-2 reduces both intravascular and extravascular hemolysis and in this study has shown a meaningful clinical benefit in both CAD and C3+ wAIHA patients. In addition to increasing hemoglobin in both CAD and C3+ wAIHA, treatment with APL-2 has shown reductions in reticulocytes, lactate dehydrogenase and bilirubin in both of these diseases,” noted Dr. Gertz. “Neither of these conditions has an FDA-approved therapy and these patients are in need of an effective treatment. The breadth of activity in these two distinct diseases is impressive. Importantly, APL-2 appears to be safe and well-tolerated in patients with AIHA.”

    *Cold Agglutinin Disease (CAD)*
    Cold Agglutinin Disease (CAD) is a severe, chronic rare autoimmune disorder caused by pathogenic Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies that react with red blood cells at temperatures below 30^oC and leads to agglutination of the red blood cells (RBCs). Agglutinated RBCs activate a part of the body’s immune system called the complement system leading to destruction of the RBC. The disease is often characterized by chronic anemia, severe fatigue, and an increased risk of life-threatening events such as stroke. There are an estimated 10,000 CAD patients across the United States and Europe. There are currently no approved therapies for CAD.

    *Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA)*
    Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (wAIHA) is a rare autoimmune disorder caused by pathogenic Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies that react with RBC and can activate the complement system leading to the premature destruction of red blood cells at normal body temperature. The disease is often characterized by profound, and potentially life-threatening anemia and other acute complications, including severe and life-threatening hemolysis, severe weakness, enlarged spleen or liver, rapid heart rate, chest pain, heart failure and fainting. There are estimated to be more than 30,000 wAIHA patients across the United States and Europe. C3+ wAIHA has been estimated to represent as much as two thirds of the total wAIHA population.  There are currently no approved treatments for wAIHA.

    *About APL-2 *
    APL-2 is designed to inhibit the complement cascade centrally at C3 and may have the potential to treat a wide range of complement-mediated diseases more effectively than is possible with partial inhibitors of complement. APL-2 is a synthetic cyclic peptide conjugated to a polyethylene glycol (PEG) polymer that binds specifically to C3 and C3b, effectively blocking all three pathways of complement activation (classical, lectin, and alternative). To date, APL-2 has generally been well-tolerated. No significant infections have been observed in trials involving the systemic administration of APL-2, including the trials in PNH, AIHA or other trials. 

    *Clinical trials *
    Specifically in hematologic diseases, Apellis is currently evaluating APL-2 in a Phase 2 clinical trial in autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) and a Phase 2 clinical trial in complement dependent nephropathies, as well as two Phase 1b trials (PHAROAH and PADDOCK) for systemic administration in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). Previously reported interim data from these trials showed improvements in lactate dehydrogenase and hemoglobin levels in patients who are suboptimal responders to eculizumab and untreated patients, respectively. The company is also conducting a Phase 3 trial for patients with PNH. For additional information regarding our clinical trials, please visit www.apellis.com/clinical-trials.html.

    *About Apellis**
    *Apellis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel therapeutic compounds for the treatment of a broad range of life-threatening or debilitating autoimmune diseases based upon complement immunotherapy through the inhibition of the complement system at the level of C3. Apellis is the first company to advance chronic therapy with a C3 inhibitor into clinical trials. For additional information about Apellis and APL-2, please visit http://www.apellis.com.

    Company to Host Investor Meeting and Webcast Today, December 3, at 8 pm PST

    BEIJING, China and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BeiGene, Ltd. (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative molecularly-targeted and immuno-oncology drugs for the treatment of cancer, today announced the presentation of clinical data from the pivotal Phase 2 trial of its investigational anti-PD-1 antibody, tislelizumab, in Chinese patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) classical Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cHL). These data were presented in an oral session at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), taking place December 1-4, 2018 in San Diego, CA, and are included in BeiGene’s new drug application (NDA) in China for tislelizumab for the treatment of patients with R/R cHL.“We set out to address the needs of patients with R/R cHL who have failed to achieve a response or progressed after autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT), or who are not candidates for ASCT, as these patients, unfortunately, have very poor outcomes,” said Jane Huang, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Hematology, at BeiGene. “We are excited to report strong results including high complete response (CR) rates from the first registration study for this potentially differentiated anti-PD-1 agent.”  

    Tislelizumab was discovered by BeiGene scientists, and is being developed globally and in China as a monotherapy and in combination with other therapies for the treatment of a broad array of both solid and hematologic cancers with 11 Phase 3 or potentially registration-enabling studies ongoing or planned to initiate in the near term. The NDA for tislelizumab in China in patients with R/R cHL has been accepted by the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA, formerly known as CFDA) and granted priority review status.

    “In this study, tislelizumab demonstrated an overall response rate (ORR) of 86 percent, including a CR rate of 61 percent. Tislelizumab was also generally well-tolerated by patients with R/R cHL. We are excited by its clinical activity and believe that tislelizumab represents a potential new immunotherapy option for patients in China and elsewhere in the world,” said Yuqin Song, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medical Oncology, Deputy Director of the Lymphoma Department at Peking University Cancer Hospital in China, and the presenting author of the study.

    *Summary of Clinical Results*

    This single arm, open-label, multi-center, pivotal Phase 2 trial of tislelizumab as a monotherapy in Chinese patients with R/R cHL (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03209973) enrolled 70 patients who failed to achieve a response or progressed after ASCT, or received at least 2 prior lines of systemic therapy for cHL and were not an ASCT candidate. Patients were treated with tislelizumab, dosed at 200 mg intravenously every three weeks. The primary endpoint of the trial is ORR assessed by independent review committee (IRC) using PET-based imaging according to the Lugano Classification 2014.

    As of May 25, 2018, 70 patients with R/R cHL were evaluable for efficacy and 53 patients (75.7%) remained on study treatment. Thirteen patients received prior ASCT, and the remaining 57 patients were ineligible for prior ASCT, including 53 for failure to achieve an objective response to salvage chemotherapy, two for inadequate stem cell collection or unable to collect stem cells, and two for co-morbidities. The patients had a median of three prior lines of systemic therapy with a range of 2 to 11. The median study follow-up was 7.85 months (3.4-12.7). Results included:

    · The ORR by IRC was 85.7 percent (60/70); the CR rate was 61.4 percent (43/70) and the partial response (PR) rate was 24.4 percent (17/70). Among patients who had received prior ASCT, 92.3 percent (12/13) achieved an objective response, with nine patients (69.2%) achieving a CR;  
     
    · The median duration of response (DOR) had not yet been reached. The estimated event-free rates at 9 months were 84 percent;
     
    · Progression-free survival (PFS) data were preliminary and 6-month PFS was estimated at 80 percent. The median PFS had not yet been reached;
     
    · The majority of adverse events (AEs) were grade 1 or 2 in severity. The most frequently reported treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) of any grade were pyrexia (52.9%), hypothyroidism (30.0%), weight increased (28.6%), upper respiratory tract infection (27.1%), cough (17.1%), white blood cell count decreased (14.3%), and pruritus (14.3%);
     
    · Grade ≥3 TEAEs occurred in 21.4% of patients. The most frequently reported Grade 3 or higher TEAEs were upper respiratory tract infection (2.9%), pneumonitis (2.9%), and productive cough (2.9%);
     
    · Four patients (5.7%) discontinued study drug due to TEAEs, including pneumonitis (n=2), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (n=1), and organizing pneumonia (n=1); there were no cases of TEAE leading to death; and
     
    · Immune-related AEs reported in more than five percent of patients included thyroid disorder (18.6%), pneumonitis (5.7%), and skin adverse reactions (5.7%).

    *About Classical Hodgkin’s Lymphoma*
    Hodgkin’s lymphoma is one of the two major types of lymphoma that begin in the lymph nodes and tissues of the lymphatic system. All other lymphomas are classified as non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. Classical Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the most common form representing about 95 percent of the patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, is characterized by the presence of very large cells called Reed-Sternberg cells. There were approximately 2,100 diagnosed cases of Hodgkin’s lymphoma in China in 2012.^i Although the cancer can occur in both children and adults, it is most commonly diagnosed in young adults between the ages of 15 and 35 and in older adults over age 50.

    *About Tislelizumab*
    Tislelizumab (BGB-A317) is an investigational humanized IgG4 anti–PD-1 monoclonal antibody specifically designed to minimize binding to FcγR on macrophages. In pre-clinical studies, binding to FcγR on macrophages has been shown to compromise the anti-tumor activity of PD-1 antibodies through activation of antibody-dependent macrophage-mediated killing of T effector cells.

    Discovered by BeiGene scientists, tislelizumab is being developed as a monotherapy and in combination with other therapies for the treatment of a broad array of both solid tumor and hematologic cancers. The new drug application (NDA) for tislelizumab in China for patients with R/R cHL has been accepted by the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA, formerly known as CFDA) and granted priority review status. BeiGene and Celgene Corporation have a global strategic collaboration for the development of tislelizumab in solid tumors in the United States, Europe, Japan and the rest of world outside Asia.

    *About BeiGene*

    BeiGene is a global, commercial-stage, research-based biotechnology company focused on molecularly-targeted and immuno-oncology cancer therapeutics. With a team of over 1,700 employees in China, the United States, Australia and Switzerland, BeiGene is advancing a pipeline consisting of novel oral small molecules and monoclonal antibodies for cancer.

    *INNATE PHARMA ANNOUNCES UPDATED RESULTS THAT SUPPORT ADVANCEMENT OF IPH4102 IN REFRACTORY SÉZARY SYNDROME AT THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF HEMATOLOGY (ASH) 2018 ANNUAL MEETING*

    · *Differentiating profile of IPH4102 confirmed: high and durable response, favorable safety profile with long-term follow-up and substantial improvement in quality of life*
    · *Innate Pharma expects to initiate a global Phase II study ("TELLOMAK") in different subtypes of T-cell lymphomas in the first half of 2019 *
    · *Management to host KOL call Tuesday, December 4, 5pm CET (8am PST)*

    *Marseille, France, December 3, 2018, 20:45 PM CET *

    Innate Pharma SA (the "Company" - Euronext Paris: FR0010331421 - IPH), today announced updated data from the Phase I trial (including an expansion cohort) evaluating IPH4102 in refractory patients with Sézary syndrome (SS) and its plan to advance IPH4102 in a multi-cohort Phase II study in different subtypes of T-cell lymphoma. An oral presentation will take place on Monday, December 3, at the ASH 2018 Annual Meeting in San Diego, USA, by Pr Martine Bagot, Head of the Dermatology Department at the Saint Louis Hospital, Paris and Principal Investigator of the study. IPH4102 is Innate Pharma's wholly-owned first-in-class anti-KIR3DL2 antibody, designed for treatment of T-cell lymphoma.

    As of October 15, 2018, data from the subgroup of 35 SS patients revealed strong clinical activity, demonstrated by an overall response rate (ORR) of 42.9%, median duration of response (DoR) of 13.8 months and median progression-free survival (PFS) of 11.7 months.

    Mogamulizumab pretreated patients (n=7) showed an ORR (42.9%), median DoR (13.8 months) and median PFS (16.8 months) similar to the entire group. The ORR appeared to be higher (n = 28, 53.6%) in patients with no histologic evidence of large cell transformation (LCT)^[1].

    "The solid updated data on IPH4102 presented today strongly encourage us to advance IPH4102 in refractory Sézary syndrome patients. We believe that the planned Phase II study, together with the Phase I data, has the potential to support a BLA submission in this indication," *commented **Pierre Dodion, Chief Medical Officer of Innate Pharma.* "In addition, the expression profile of KIR3DL2 provides a strong rational to explore the potential of IPH4102 in other subtypes of T-cell lymphomas in the TELLOMAK phase II study".

    Importantly, clinical activity was associated with a substantial improvement in quality of life as assessed by the SkinDex29 and Pruritus Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores. IPH4102 displayed a favorable safety profile, consistent with previous observations.

    "Refractory Sézary syndrome patients have limited effective treatment options in later lines of therapy, with toxicity remaining an area of great concern with currently approved drugs," *commented Professor Martine Bagot, Principal Investigator of the study.* "IPH4102, in addition to demonstrating an impressive clinical activity, has shown a favorable safety profile and substantially improves the quality of life even in patients with stable disease. Translational results show relevant pharmacodynamics effects of IPH4102 in skin and in blood, which are in line with the clinical efficacy of the drug."

    Exploratory biomarker analysis show early elimination of aberrant tumor cells and peripheral blood KIR3DL2+ CD4 T cells upon IPH4102 administration in responding patients.

    The presentation is available in the IPH4102 section on Innate Pharma's website.

    *KOL webcast and conference call on Tuesday, December 4, at 5pm CET (8am PST)*

    Pierre Dodion, Chief Medical Officer, Innate Pharma, will be joined by Prof. Martine Bagot, Head of Dermatology Department at the Saint Louis Hospital, Paris and lead investigator of the study, for a live webcast and conference call with a Q&A session on Tuesday, December 4 at 5pm CET to discuss the announcement.

    *About the IPH4102 Phase I trial: *

    The Phase I trial (NCT02593045) is an open label, multicenter study of IPH4102 in patients with relapsed/refractory CTCL which is performed in Europe (France, Netherlands and United Kingdom) and in the US. Participating institutions include several hospitals with internationally recognized expertise: the Saint-Louis Hospital (Paris, France), the Stanford University Medical Center (Stanford, CA), the Ohio State University (Columbus, OH), the MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, Texas), the Leiden University Medical Center (Leiden, Netherlands), and the Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital (London, United Kingdom). Up to 55 patients with advanced CTCL having received at least two prior lines of systemic therapy were to be enrolled in two sequential study parts:

    · The dose-escalation part has accrued 25 KIR3DL2-positive CTCL patients at 10 dose levels. The objective was to characterize IPH4102 safety profile and to identify the MTD and/or the RP2D; the dose-escalation followed an accelerated 3+3 design. Safety data of all dose levels were presented at the ICML meeting on June 14, 2017. Final results of the dose-escalation part were presented at the EORTC CLTF Meeting on October 15, 2017.
    · The cohort expansion enrolled 19 patients with Sézary Syndrome (n=15) and tMF (n=4) receiving IPH4102 at the RP2D until progression.

    The primary objective of this trial was to evaluate the safety and tolerability of repeated administrations of single agent IPH4102 in this patient population. The secondary objectives included assessment of the drug's antitumor activity. Clinical endpoints included global objective response rate, response duration and progression-free survival. Exploratory analyses are aimed at identifying biomarkers of clinical activity.

    *About IPH4102:*

    IPH4102 is a first-in-class anti-KIR3DL2 humanized cytotoxicity-inducing antibody, designed for treatment of CTCL, an orphan disease. This group of rare cutaneous lymphomas of T lymphocytes has a poor prognosis with few therapeutic options at advanced stages.   KIR3DL2 is an inhibitory receptor of the KIR family, expressed by approximately 65% of patients across all CTCL subtypes and expressed by up to 85% of them with certain aggressive CTCL subtypes, in particular, Sézary syndrome and transformed mycosis fungoides. It has a restricted expression on normal tissues.

    IPH4102 was granted orphan drug status in the European Union and in the United States for the treatment of CTCL.

    *About Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma ("CTCL"):*

    CTCL is a heterogeneous group of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas which arise primarily in the skin and are characterized by the presence of malignant clonal mature T-cells. CTCL accounts for approximately 4% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and has a median age at diagnosis of 55-65 years.

    Mycosis fungoides, and Sézary syndrome, its leukemic variant, are the most common CTCL subtypes. The overall 5-year survival rate, which depends in part on disease subtype, is approximately 10% for Sézary syndrome and less than 15% for transformed mycosis fungoides. CTCL is an orphan disease and patients with advanced CTCL have a poor prognosis with few therapeutic options and no standard of care. There are approximately 6,000 new CTCL cases in Europe and the United States per year.

    *About Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma ("PTCL"):*

    PTCL represents a group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas of mature T-cell origin with generally aggressive clinical behavior (Armitage, 2015). The three predominant aggressive PTCL subtypes in the Western countries are: PTCL not otherwise specified (NOS); angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma (AITL); and anaplastic T cell lymphoma (ALCL). In aggregate, PTCL accounts for approximately 10% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and has a median age at diagnosis around 65 years.

    Multi-agent chemotherapy is the recommended first line treatment for the majority of patients with PTCL (NCCN guidelines). Brentuximab vedotin has been recently approved by the US FDA in combination with first line chemotherapy for patient with CD30 positive PTCL (FDA press release, Nov 16, 2018). Stem cell transplantation (SCT) is a potentially curative option but is rather restricted to a minority of patients who are young, fit and achieve complete response to systemic therapy (Wilhelm, Smetak et al. 2016). Hence a high proportion of patients need second line therapy. Belinostat, pralatrexate and romidepsin have been approved by the FDA in this setting, but efficacy is generally limited (O'Connor, Zcan et al. 2015). None of these treatments have been approved by EMA. Brentuximab vedotin is also approved in the 2nd line setting (Pro, Advani et al. 2017), but if used in the first line, it may no longer be an option in 2nd line patients.
