    Dusk Network Offers a *Compliant, Scalable and Privacy-Oriented Protocol For Security Token Issuance. *The Dusk Standard Can be Used by Companies to Create Security Tokens on Top of Dusk BlockchainLUXEMBOURG, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asset Management Fund Olymp Capital today announced an investment in Amsterdam-based Dusk Network, the first cryptocurrency protocol that satisfies the entire Security Token Offering (STO) regulatory framework on the blockchain at a fraction of the cost. Thus, the Dusk Network is aiming to become the “Ethereum network” of STOs, with Dusk Token used as the standard for STOs, in the same way Ether Tokens (ERC-20) are used for ICOs. Olymp Capital will work closely with Dusk Network to deliver STO value for clients.

    Dusk Network enables investors to exchange *data privately and transfer* ownership assets (e.g. security tokens). It implements a real-time payment channel (a pay-as-you-go model) and rapid peer-to-peer data communication. The company has developed a framework that appeals to traditional and institutional investors, who cannot invest easily due to legal structures, creating an opportunity for Dusk Network to become a favored destination for STOs, as a one-stop shop platform to issue security tokens, with easy and fully compliant onboarding. Dusk aims to create a viable security token market and bring together businesses, regulators, and financial institutions.

    As a part of its collaboration with Ethfinex, Dusk Network opens access for Ethfinex and Bitfinex users to a private sale. Dusk Tokens will be listed on both Exchanges (Bitfinex and Ethfinex).

    Co-founder and CEO of Olymp Capital, Christophe de Courson, said: “The Dusk Network team has created a technology that adapts uniquely to the needs of STO investors, and we see tremendous upside from their infrastructure.”

    Dusk Network marks Olymp Capital’s third investment, after Nodle.io and Yeay GmbH’s WOM Protocol. Each investment represents Olymp’s thesis in sustainable businesses; Nodle.io represents the first and largest Internet of Things (IoT) network of its kind; WOM is the first word-of-mouth marketing platform for reaching fans via cryptocurrency, and Dusk is the first protocol to satisfy the entire STO regulatory framework. Olymp seeks to offer a full product suite for its investors – whether in equity or not.

    Dusk Network maintains strong partnerships within the ecosystem: Blockventure coalition, Switcheo Network, GSR, and Blonde 2.0 – which should drive fast growth of its community.

    Jelle Pol, CEO of Dusk Network said: “Through its strategic investment in Dusk Network, Olymp Capital has taken a foundation position in shaping the future of Security Token markets – a widely anticipated new digital asset class.  We want to elevate the community around STOs, and Olymp Capital represents an investor that is steeped in cryptocurrency innovation, so we have a strong partner to help us realize our vision for this market.”

    *About Dusk Network*

    Dusk Network is the first cryptocurrency protocol that satisfies the entire Security Token Offering (STO) regulatory framework on the blockchain at a fraction of the cost. The company’s technology provides the first protocol that satisfies the entire STO regulatory framework on-chain, at a fraction of the cost, and is decentralized, automated, scalable, confidential and compliant. Dusk Network will list on both Ethfinex and Bitfinex. The company is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. More information can be viewed at http://dusk.network.

    DGAP-News: Adrenomed AG / Key word(s): Conference

    19.12.2018 / 09:00
    The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
    --------------------

    *International Opinion Leaders Align on Value of Adrenomedullin as Therapeutical Target and Biomarker in Sepsis and Acute Heart Failure*

    *- For the second time, Adrenomed and sphingotec host international scientific symposium on vascular integrity in Berlin*

    *- Top-tier clinical scientists and key opinion leaders discuss potential of Adrenomedullin in diagnosis and treatment of acute heart failure and sepsis*

    *Hennigsdorf/Berlin* *(Germany), December 19, 2018* - The 2^nd scientific symposium "Endothelial Dysfunction - Adrenomedullin as a diagnostic and therapeutic target" was hosted by Adrenomed AG, the vascular integrity company, and by sphingotec GmbH, a diagnostic company leading in innovative biomarkers, in Berlin on December 18, 2018. International top-tier clinical scientists and key opinion leaders aligned on the concept of vascular integrity, endothelial barrier dysfunction and the role of Adrenomedullin as a diagnostic and therapeutic target in life-threating conditions such as septic shock and acute congestive heart failure. Adrenomed and sphingotec aim to fulfill unmet medical needs in particular in ICU (intensive care unit) and ED (emergency department) patients.

    Regulation of vascular integrity is a fundamental process for human physiology and pathology. Severe impairment of the endothelial barrier - presenting in porous, leaky blood vessels and resulting in tissue congestion and edema - drives conditions that are most threatening to life, such as septic shock and acute congestive heart failure.

    The circulating hormone Adrenomedullin is the key regulator of vascular integrity. Adrenomedullin is mainly expressed and secreted by vascular endothelial cells and is known for its vasodilatory activity in the interstitium resulting in decreased blood pressure. In the circulation, Adrenomedullin has vasoprotective effects by directly tightening the gaps between endothelial cells, and subsequently preventing vascular leakage.^[1]

    "We validated Adrenomedullin as therapeutic target and biomarker in analyses of over 20,000 well-defined patient samples. Rising plasma levels of biologically active Adrenomedullin (bio-ADM^(R)) clearly demonstrate a worsening of vascular integrity leading to shock or tissue congestion independent of any other comorbidity," explained Dr. Joachim Struck, Vice President Medical Affairs of sphingotec GmbH and added "With the biomarker sphingotest^(R) bio-ADM^(R), patients at risk of worsening conditions can be clearly identified and monitored during hospital stay."^[2], [3]

    Subsequently, for rescuing vascular function, Adrenomed develops the monoclonal antibody Adrecizumab. Adrecizumab binds specifically to biologically active Adrenomedullin in the plasma, thereby stabilizing the molecule in the circulation and increasing the plasma levels of Adrenomedullin, while keeping its functionality. It has been recently published that Adrecizumab thereby improves vascular barrier function and survival in rodent models of systemic inflammation and septic shock.^[4]

    "With a biomarker-drug combination utilizing bioactive Adrenomedullin as target and biomarker for patient stratification, we are developing a unique solution to rescue vascular integrity in life-threatening conditions such as sepsis, septic shock and acute heart failure and are therefore responding to a very high unmet medical need," said Dr. Andreas Bergmann, Chief Scientific Officer of Adrenomed AG and Chief Executive Officer of sphingotec GmbH.

    Adrecizumab is currently under clinical evaluation in the AdrenOSS-2 trial, a biomarker-guided, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter proof-of-concept Phase II trial in 300 septic shock patients preselected with high bio-ADM^(R) levels.

    Dr. Jens Zimmermann, Chief Medical Officer of Adrenomed AG, presented results from the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase Ia and Phase Ib studies, that included a total of forty-eight healthy volunteers to evaluate escalating doses of Adrecizumab. Adrecizumab demonstrated an excellent safety profile in both studies. In addition, the Phase Ib study in systemic inflammation indicated dose-dependent beneficial effects of Adrecizumab on vascular integrity without affecting inflammatory parameters. Results of the Phase I trials were recently published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.^[5]

    To allow timely access to bio-ADM^(R) values in daily practice, sphingotec is currently developing a point-of-care solution on the recently acquired Nexus IB10 platform. The test will deliver results within 20 minutes from whole blood without any preparation time. The fully-automated platform is already placed in more than 1,000 intensive care units, emergency departments and doctors' offices in Europe and the Middle East and proved its applicability in routine. sphingotec's biomarkers penKid^(R) and bio-ADM^(R) will complement the standard-of-care portfolio to offer an all-around solution for diagnosis of life-threatening conditions such as septic shock and congestion in acute heart failure. Furthermore, bio-ADM^(R) is currently developed as a high-throughput solution on the automated VITROS^(R) platform from Ortho Clinical Diagnostics.

    *About Adrenomed*
    Adrenomed AG is a German privately-financed, clinical stage biopharmaceutical company. Adrenomed's mission is to rescue vascular integrity in order to save the lives of critically ill patients with limited treatment options. Founded in 2009 by a management team with decades of in-depth experience in sepsis and deep knowledge in diagnostics and drug development, the Company's lead product candidate is Adrecizumab, a clinical-stage, first-in-class monoclonal antibody. Adrecizumab targets the vasoprotective peptide Adrenomedullin, an essential regulator of vascular integrity. Adrecizumab is currently under clinical evaluation in a biomarker-guided, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter proof-of-concept Phase II study with 300 patients suffering septic shock. Excellent safety and tolerability were demonstrated in two Phase I trials.

    *About sphingotec*
    sphingotec GmbH (Hennigsdorf, Germany) is developing and marketing innovative biomarkers penKid^(R) and bio-ADM^(R) for prediction, diagnosis and therapy monitoring of AKI, congestive heart failure and septic shock, as well as the Nexus IB10 POC testing immunoassay platform acquired from Samsung-subsidiary Nexus Dx Inc. in May 2018. The company, founded by Dr. Andreas Bergmann in 2002, in addition is developing a pipeline of novel biomarkers which can predict the risks of obesity, breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

    IntraBio Receives Niemann-Pick Disease Orphan Drug Designation from the FDA for IB4000 *OXFORD, UK / ACCESSWIRE / December 19, 2018 /* IntraBio Inc., a late-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapies for rare (''orphan'') and common neurodegenerative diseases, announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation to IB4000 for the treatment of Niemman-Pick disease Type C (NPC), a rare, debilitating, inherited lysosomal storage disorder that predominately affects pediatric patients.

    This orphan designation provides a number of FDA regulatory benefits, such as a 25% tax credit for the costs of clinical development, a waiver for all prescription drug user fees at the time of marketing approval (approximately $2.5 Million dollars per indication), and 7 years' exclusivity in the US from the date of marketing authorization.

    ''We are pleased to receive orphan designation for IB4000, which for the first time may give NPC patients a therapeutic option for the chronic liver dysfunction associated with the disease'' said Dr. Frances Platt, Professor of Biochemistry and Pharmacology in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Oxford.

    NPC affects 1:100,000 live births and is most commonly caused by dysfunction of the NPC1 protein leading to the accumulation of lipids in lysosomes, resulting in impaired cell function and cell death in various organs, leading to a spectrum of symptoms in NPC patients. The disease typically begins in early childhood and is chronic and progressive in nature; motor and cognitive symptoms become more disabling over the course of the disease, negatively impacting the quality of life. Currently, the average age of death for NPC patients is approximately 10 years, with half of the patients dying before the age of 12.5 years.

    IntraBio, with its collaborators, has evaluated the effect of IB4000 in pre-clinical and observational clinical studies in order to establish the potential therapeutic value and clinical utility of IB4000 in treating Niemann-Pick disease Type C (NPC). The company intends to continue investigating the compound for the treatment of rare, genetic diseases like NPC that have extremely high unmet medical needs because there exist no approved therapies available in this disease setting.

    *About IntraBio*

    IntraBio Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company with a late-stage drug pipeline including novel treatments for common and rare neurodegenerative diseases. IntraBio's platform results from decades of research and investment at premier universities and institutions worldwide.

    *Dengvaxia^® vaccine approved for prevention of dengue in Europe*

    *Paris, France - December 19, 2018* - The European Commission has granted marketing authorization for Dengvaxia^®, Sanofi's dengue vaccine. The marketing authorization follows the October 18, 2018, recommendation by the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) to approve use of the dengue vaccine in European endemic areas.

    Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne infection that people can get up to 4 times in a lifetime. Dengue is also known as 'break-bone fever' since it can cause debilitating disease marked by prolonged episodes of high fever and severe joint pain. An infection can progress unpredictably to a life-threatening form of the disease called dengue haemorrhagic fever that often requires hospitalized care. Today, there is no specific treatment available for dengue.

    Dengvaxia^® will be available in Europe to prevent dengue disease in individuals 9-45 years of age with a documented prior dengue infection and who are living in endemic areas.

    "In some of the European overseas territories where dengue recurs regularly, people who have had a dengue infection previously are at risk of being infected with the virus again," explains Dr. Su-Peing Ng, Global Medical Head at Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccine unit of Sanofi. "As the second infection with dengue tends to be more severe than the first, it is important to be able to offer these people a vaccine that could help protect them against subsequent dengue infections."

    According to the WHO, the global incidence of dengue has grown rapidly in recent decades and it now threatens half of the world's population living in 128 countries.^[i] Dengue is endemic in several European territories located in tropical and sub-tropical climates prone to outbreaks of the disease particularly during the rainy season.^[ii] Earlier this year, dengue outbreaks in La Reunion resulted in more than 6,000 people being made ill by the virus, which is spread by a day-biting mosquito that often lives in people's homes. During past outbreaks of dengue in Guadeloupe and Martinique, more than 40,000 people reportedly contracted the fever.^[iii]^,[iv]

    The dengue vaccine has been evaluated in studies involving more than 40,000 people from 15 countries with up to six years of follow-up from large-scale clinical safety and efficacy investigations.

    Dengvaxia^® is approved for use in several endemic countries in Latin America and Asia where reducing the human and economic burden of dengue is critical. The vaccine is currently under priority review by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as it would be considered a significant medical advance in the prevention of dengue, which is considered an unmet medical need by the FDA.

    Italy and the EU just struck a deal, avoiding the start of a fresh crisis for Europe· Italy and the EU agree a deal on the country's budget, averting a long expected crisis in the eurozone. Stocks reacted positively to the announcement and the euro gained.
    · After weeks of wrangling, the two parties have agreed to allow Italy to run a budget deficit of 2.04% next year.
    · Italy had previously proposed increasing its deficit to 2.4%, which risked breaking spending rules.

    Italy and the European Union have finally agreed a deal that will allow Europe's fourth largest economy to avoid sanctions from Brussels over its government budget for next year, averting a potential crisis in the eurozone.

    Brussels and Rome had been at loggerheads over the Italian government's plans to increase both the debt and deficit in the country, pushing the deficit as high as 2.4% of gross domestic product over the coming years. Such proposals put Italy at risk of falling foul of EU limits on spending.

    After weeks of wrangling, the two parties have agreed to allow Italy to run a budget deficit of 2.04% next year, higher than a previously mandated limit, but well below the Italian government's initial proposal.

    The agreement will provide the "basis for balanced budgetary and economic policies in Italy," Valdis Dombrovskis, the EU's most senior official dealing with the euro and financial systems, said according to the Financial Times.

    However, Italy "urgently needs to restore confidence in its economy to ease financial conditions and support investment," he added.

    "Let’s be clear, the solution is not ideal."

    The agreement means that Italy will no longer be subject to the so-called Excessive Deficit Procedure (EDP) — which has the power to fine countries within the eurozone who break spending rules within the bloc. Italy's entry into the EDP was set to be announced on Wednesday.

    Markets have reacted positively to the announcement with Italy's benchmark FTSE MIB trading more than 1.7% higher on the day. It had climbed on Wednesday morning as rumours surfaced that a deal would be struck. The euro is also higher against the dollar on the day, trading at €1.1402, a gain of 0.35%.

    Tesla boss says Boring Company's Loop system can transport modified autonomous EVs at speeds of up to 150mph

    Tesla boss Elon Musk’s Boring Company has unveiled a prototype underground tunnel that it says can transport autonomous electric cars at speeds of up to 150mph.

    The one-mile test tunnel in Los Angeles has been constructed to show the feasibility of The Loop, which Musk said was the “future of mass transit”. 

    Electric cars are modified with special tracking wheel attachments, which allow the car to be attached to a track in the tunnel. The attachment is designed to keep the car stable while travelling at high speeds, guided by its own autonomous functions. It is not clear what 'level' of autonomy such cars will need to have to use the tunnel.

    The Boring Company has modified a number of Tesla Model X SUVs to test on the prototype tunnel. Musk says the system is currently capable of reaching speeds up to 110mph, but test runs during the launch event were limited to 50mph.

    While only cars from Musk’s Tesla firm has so far been used on the tunnel, the entrepreneur said that any electric car with full autonomous capability would be able to use the system.

    Musk said that each tunnel could eventually support up to 4000 cars per hour, with a number of extra cars circulating the system capable of picking up and dropping off pedestrians. 

    A number of reports from those who had test runs said the ride was bumpy, which Musk said was down to the short timescale to prepare the tunnel. He claimed the finished version would be “as smooth as glass.”

    He added that the smaller size of the tunnels – less than 14 feet in diameter – compared to those for underground train lines (around 28 feet) meant they were cheaper and quicker to produce. Musk added that he was also investing in developing boring machinery to improve speeds.

    While some transport planners have questioned the viability of the scheme, suggesting it would create bottlenecks at the entrance and exit points, Musk said the small size of such stations meant more could be installed than for a subway system. He added that, while pricing was not set, he was aiming to charge $1 (80p) per trip.

    The Loop is a separate project to the Hyperloop One scheme that Musk is also involved in. That concept uses a vacuum-sealed turbo to propel large autonomous pods at speeds above 600mph, the new project is designed to work with modified cars.

    Dublin, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global B2C E-Commerce Delivery 2018" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.*Enhancement coming in the delivery of online purchases says* *report*

    Global B2C E-Commerce Delivery 2018 includes projections about new technologies that will improve delivery of online purchases.*Delivery timeliness and cost are considered as part of the purchase package*

    As consumers research products and consider an online purchase, they look for free or low-cost delivery. Part of the research includes a perusal of comments regarding delivery in online reviews written by previous purchasers. The report includes a summary of a survey from last year in the USA that found that late delivery, high shipping costs, lost items and erroneous tracking information were among the main sources of dissatisfaction with buying over the Internet.

    *Online sellers look to innovative technology to improve the delivery experience for shoppers.*

    Online merchants have found it necessary to offer alternatives to satisfy consumer expectations of the delivery process. Tradition store-based merchants offer the click-&-collect for online purchases to reduce delivery time and costs, and online-only sellers have established lockers in public places or convenience stores. The report includes the projections that innovative technologies such as driverless vehicles, drones, and droids will be put in place by the end of the next decade.

    *Report Summary*The global fashion B2C E-Commerce market is forecasted to exceed half a trillion euros in sales by 2022, according to projections cited in the report. In terms of online penetration of total retail sales by 2022, more than one-third of clothing, accessories, and footwear spending is expected to occur online. The growth is driven by increasing number of online fashion shoppers who look for convenience, larger product selection, lower prices, convenient payment methods, online reviews and product ratings when purchasing clothing and accessories on the Internet.Clothing is one of the most popular product categories purchased by digital shoppers worldwide. Due to its huge population and the high fashion online shopper penetration, China is the largest online fashion retail market globally. Tmall and Taobao are the leading channels for buying apparel products in that country, the report reveals. The USA is in second place worldwide in online sales volume of fashion products. As of summer 2018, Amazon was the preferred pure online store for purchasing fashion items among pure online players and multi-channel retailers in the USA. The UK is the European leader in online apparel, footwear and accessories retail sales, with more than a half of adults purchasing these items online in 2017.

    HM.com was the most popular fashion E-Commerce website in the world in terms of the number of monthly visits. Russian-based online fashion retailer Wildberries.ru ranked second, followed by pure online players Asos.com and store-based Zara.com, in a ranking from 2018 cited in the report.The global online clothing market competition intensifies as Amazon has demonstrated a strong interest in the global expansion of the online fashion segment in recent years. In the growing competitive environment, omnichannel strategies have become vitally important for both online and store-based retailers of apparel. In the USA, the online shopping sites of store-based retailers Walmart, Kohl's and Macy's were among the top five destinations for online clothing shopping. On the other hand, European online fashion retailer Zalando began to expand an offline segment by opening several brick and mortar outlets in Germany.

    NEW YORK and MELBOURNE, Australia, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mesoblast Limited (Nasdaq:MESO; ASX:MSB) today announced that it has appointed Eric Strati, PhD, to the new position of Senior Vice President, Commercial. He will drive commercial launch activities of the Company’s lead cell therapy product candidate remestemcel-L in the United States and Europe for the treatment of steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease (aGVHD). Mesoblast estimates the annual peak sales for aGVHD to be approximately $US700 million in the United States and EU5. Dr Strati said: “My first priority is to build a highly efficient and targeted field sales team to leverage existing relationships with transplant centers in the United States. Key to rapid market penetration will be engagement with insurers and other reimbursement agencies as well as management of the product distribution process.”

    Prior to joining Mesoblast in 2015, Dr Strati held various leadership roles in global pharmaceutical companies, most recently at Novartis where he was Executive Director, Managed Markets, and a key member of the successful launch teams for the blockbuster drugs Entresto^® in chronic heart failure and Cosentyx^® in moderate to severe psoriasis.

    Mesoblast’s recently-appointed United States-based Directors Shawn Cline Tomasello and Joe Swedish will provide guidance to the commercial team, leveraging their combined extensive expertise in product launches, commercialization, pricing and reimbursement. Ms Tomasello most recently was Chief Commercial Officer at Kite Pharma and Pharmacyclics, and President of the Americas, Hematology and Oncology at Celgene. Mr Swedish was most recently President and CEO at Anthem, America’s leading health benefits provider.

    Mesoblast Chief Executive Dr Silviu Itescu stated: “Eric is well equipped to lead and execute on our product commercialization strategy as we transition to a fully integrated commercial stage company.” 

    Mesoblast plans to submit a rolling Biologics License Application with the FDA for use of remestemcel-L in treating steroid-refractory aGVHD in children in early 2019. In order to make remestemcel-L available as soon as possible, Mesoblast will work diligently to provide all information required by the FDA. There are no FDA approved treatments for this disease with high mortality.
      
    Remestemcel-L is already sold in Japan by Mesoblast’s licensee, JCR Pharmaceuticals, under the registered trademark TEMCELL^® HS Inj.

    EDMONTON, Alberta, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *Radient Technologies Inc.* (“Radient” or the “Company”) (*TSX Venture: RTI; OTCQX: RDDTF*) is pleased to announce that it has now filed an additional 9 provisional patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the “USPTO”), bringing the total number of patent applications filed by the Company in 2018 to 40. The inventions covered in these patent applications relate to methods and systems for improving the safety, potency, flavour, and experience of cannabinoid extracts used in the manufacturing of food & beverage products.Further Details: Patents for Innovating Cannabinoid-Infused Food & Beverage Manufacturing Processes

    These provisional patent applications provide methods that are expected to be critical in the cannabinoid-infused food and beverage industry. The methods relate to the measuring, dosing, and testing of cannabinoid additives used in food & beverage manufacturing processes. Because cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (“CBD”) and tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) are extracted from plant biomass, the ability to produce food and beverage products with consistent and measurable cannabinoid content and potency is highly desired by both customers and regulators.

    Several of these inventions provide novel solutions poised for widespread adoption in the flavouring of cannabinoid-infused food & beverage products. Traditionally, edible and drinkable cannabis products have been interlinked with flavours and aromas associated with the marijuana plant. There is a need in the market to meet customer demand for cannabinoid-infused food & beverage products with a variety of desirable flavours.

    Further, some of these provisional patent applications cover functional packaging elements for cannabinoid-infused food & beverage products that Radient’s extensive analysis indicates will be in line with the direction of the cannabis industry. These packaging elements are intended to provide additional safety measures and an improved user experience.

    These provisional applications were first filed in the USPTO to create a priority date and allow for future filings in other selected jurisdictions, as appropriate, including Canada and Europe.

    Dr. Steven Splinter, Founder and CTO of Radient, stated: “With nearly 20 years of experience in developing and manufacturing extracts for our customers, providing our solutions to the food & beverage sector of the cannabis industry is a natural extension of our core capabilities.”

    *About Radient* 
    Radient extracts natural compounds from a range of biological materials using microwave assisted processing (“MAP™”), a patented technology platform which provides superior customer outcomes in terms of ingredient purity, yield, and cost. From its 23,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Edmonton, Alberta, Radient serves market leaders in industries that include pharmaceutical, food, beverage, natural health, and personal care markets. Since 2016, Radient has expanded its offerings to enter the cannabinoids market utilizing its MAP™ platform to process and extract cannabinoids including cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol from cannabis biomass.
